Hapde Burfday to me (and to you too)

Ahhhhhhhhh, my new boyfriend. I haven't abandoned Jon Bon Jovi altogether, but Bourdain's bad boy ways are too sexy to resist. Dinner with him would be the *perfect* birthday present, in case anyone was wondering what to get me!

34. How did I get to be 34? I am not exactly feeling chipper about the old birthday this year. Sigh.

Ok, onto the giveaway.
I bought this quilt off Ebay when we lived in Florida, so it's been with me about 10 years. (Oy, that time thing again!) Given the ever bursting state of the quilt cabinet , it's time to set her free.
As far as I can tell it has never been washed. The blue lines for the embroidery are still there.
And the sweet prairie point edges!

The boring bit:
It's big, so I can only ship it within the US (I would have to sell Jack to pay the postage otherwise).
Leave a comment saying "I want that quilt!" so that I know you aren't just leaving birthday wishes. :-) (But leaving just birthday wishes is not discouraged either, LOLOLOL.)
Be sure I can figure out where to find you if you don't have a blog/email address/blogger profile/etc that links to someplace to contact you!
Jack and I will pick a winner on Sunday.

Good luck!

  1. I want that quilt!! And, Hapde Burfday! 34....a mere baby! I hope you have a great day, doing something you enjoy. Maybe a garage sale, where everything you collect is only a quarter today!

  4. The quilt is GORGEOUS! I have one, count it ONE quilt so far. And I have made quilts for a while. But, this could hang on a wall, sit on a table, cover a bed, or just be cuddled under by a cozy fire on a wintery night. Um... did I mention I would LOVE to have the quilt?

    Now of course, I also want to wish you a happy birthday. Love the "kid spelling" on your post. Such warm happy feelings. By the by, if you think 34 feels "old" then try hitting 46. ACK!
    Blessings and many returns of the day,
    Kim

  10. Happy birthday!!! I turn 35 this year. for some reason the 5's make me feel really old, like impending doom or something! I also hated 25 but 30 was rather anticlimactic.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Happy Birthday! I want that quilt, lol! You are funny. And listen chickie, 34 is nothing - I just celebrated [if you can call it that] number 5-0 in March. Have to admit though, it wasn't as hard as 25 - on my 25th, I kept saying "quarter of a CENTURY?" I guess now I can say "HALF a CENTURY!" Gets to the point you're just grateful to wake up.

    I hope you're enjoying all the birthday wishes, and somebody gets you something you always wanted!

  62. Wow, look at those comments! Out come the lurkers, though I can't blame them with such a generous giveaway.

    First, happy birthday--and 34 is nothing. I didn't start feeling my age till about 38.

    Secondly, I wouldn't mind that gorgeous quilt! I never find them at the thrift or estate sales.

  63. Who wouldn't want a free quilt. Especially your Birthday give away. Hope your day was full of sweets and fresh flowers!
