A SWEET LITTLE GIVEAWAY- FROM ME TO YOU


I KNOW you all love GIVE AWAYS
and this is one that
KEEPS ON GIVING
all year long!

I KNOW how much most of you 
LOVE MAGAZINES.
We were all doing magazines
LONG before Pinterest 
and blogging, weren't we?
I  know that a lot of you dropped
your subscriptions once you started
blogging because there was so 
much inspiration online
AND because magazines are expensive..

However,
There is just something satisfying
about having a magazine 
IN YOUR HAND,
isn't there?

So- Here's the deal!
I am offering you a 
ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION
to
COTTAGE.
It is published 5 times a year.

You will LOVE IT- trust me!

What do you have to do?
Just be 
A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG
AND
LEAVE ME A COMMENT.

That's it-
No hoops to jump through-
I don't need your Mother's maiden name
or your father's blood type.

Just your name!
Got it?
GO!

Drawing is Saturday November 1st!

Well- don't just SIT THERE-
Leave me a comment  dopey
I will be away for most of the day 
but will try to play a bit of catch up tonight. 
your photo name

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

Oh don't have this one. thanks for the sweet little giveaway!

Barbara said...

Oh Diana...my absolute favorite magazine! I just purchased a years subscription (dag) so don't enter me in your contest, but wow what a fabulous publication the Cottage Journal is. The photography is incredible and the ideas or even better. What an awesome giveaway.
Have a great day!
XO Barbara

Richella Parham said...

I still love magazines, but I've never had the pleasure of reading this magazine! Thank you for the giveaway; I'd love to see it.

You are SO FUNNY. . . mother's maiden name or father's blood type. . . it does seem that some giveaways have an awful lot of hoops to jump through, doesn't it? :)

Anonymous said...

wow, thats a great give away! I don't think we get that one in Canada though,,,,

Susie said...

Diana, Yes please, sign me up. That is a nice gift, we will all want it. :):) Hope you are having a great day.xoxo,Susie

Linda said...

Oh, put my name in the hat. The only thing I remember winning was a birthday cake. And not even my birthday :( Linda@Wetcreek Blog

FabShabbyRoses said...

Oh my goodness!!!!! Someone is going to be a very lucky girl or boy!!!!! I can't help but hope it's me!!!! I'm a devoted follower for sure!!! Thank you for an awesome chamce to obtain some awesomeness!!!! Sincerely, Carolyn

Kathy said...

This is a great giveaway. I have never heard of this magazine, but it looks like a really nice one. Now I don't know my father's blood type, but my mother's maiden name is... Oh wait. I don't have to do that.

Maria Elena said...

Never had the pleasure to read this magazine, so count me in! Thank you, Diana!

Stacey said...

I love that magazine with every ounce of my being!! Don't include me in the give away because I do have a subscription. I've given it as a gift to several friends and gave it away on my blog last fall too. It's so special. Last weekend my husband and I traveled to Birmingham and I took the fall edition with me...he thought I would leave it at the hotel. No way!! They are keepers. :)

Musings from Kim K. said...

You've been so generous with me in the past, don't enter my name but I wanted to also say that this is a wonderful publication. What a great give-away!

Victoria's Vintage Designs said...

Nice offer Diana. Vicki

J said...

Oh my goodness! I'd love to win this! I do agree with you. It's less expensive to get recipes and ideas online than through a subscription. But there's just something missing when you don't have those pages in your hands! Thanks for an exciting give away! I'm already happy for the winner!

Kelley said...

ABSOLUTELY! :-))))))))

Hugs, Diana!

I love this magazine....put my name in the hat and have Sweet Cheeks draw it out! Hugs, Penny

Stephanie said...

You are a sweetie, Diana! You re absolutely right, there is nothing like having a "real" copy in your hand to read. That's the way I am with books - I have to have the hard copy :)

I am a happy follower of yours, dear friend :) Hugs!

Karen L. Bates said...

Thanks for this giveaway, and yes, I just love a hard copy. I have never seen this magazine so I am really looking forward to giving it a try.

I love a good magazine, but rarely take the time to read them anymore. I agree about the cost of magazines. Thank you for the giveaway!!

Okio B Designs said...

This is so sweet of you! Of course, I'm a follower. =) And I do love the feel of a magazine in my hand. I can't stand reading them online or via my phone. It's just not the same.

Oh, you're so sweet to offer this giveaway! I'd love to read that magazine. I'm still a fan of magazines and books. I have a kindle, but sometimes still prefer a good old book. Also thanks for the easy entry to your giveaway...so many giveaways now days require you to follow them on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, etc. etc, etc. Lol! I appreciate the way you do it. :)

carolann said...

I have always been a follower. If you got a minute drop in my blog and leave a prayer. We have Parliament Of Ottawa on shut down. Watch your fox news. for more details. Nice give away.

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Lovely giveaway! I hope I am the lucky one!

Nothing like turning the pages of a magazine. You guys can get so many mags that I have never heard of. I know I am going to win this!

sweetvintageofmine said...

Hi Diana, In case you didn't know, I live in a cedar shake cottage and Christmas will be here soon....enough said! Blessings~~~Roxie

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Holy smokes, wow oh my gosh I would love to win this incredible giveaway. Yes yes yes, I take magazines to my garden outdoor room (when warm) or upstairs to my little loft reading area (when cold) to take my little teatimes. THIS publication is one of my absolute favorites and I would be stunned and delighted to win it. So often it is sold out at the store I frequent. So thank you so much for your generosity. Diana!

Junkchiccottage said...

Ohhhhhhh Diana what a sweet and generous give away. I love this magazine and do not have a subscription and I am like you I love to actually hold the magazine and keep them for future reference. There is just something relaxing about sitting down and reading a good decor magazine. So thank you for a chance at this very sweet giveaway. You Rock Girl.
Kris

Hartwood Roses said...

I have never heard of this magazine before. (Glad to hear that I'm not the inky one who dropped magazine subscriptions.). This one sounds like a good one.

I'm surely already following, so I'll just leave a comment. Sweet giveaway, Diana, and what a cozy magazine cover that is. The holiday issues are always so dreamy. ♥

Debby said...

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

I love that magazine! Although the internet is amazing and has far more to look at than I can find time to, I still love an honest to goodness magazine. Can't use my Kindle in the bathtub, can I? Thanks for the chance of this super giveaway. Jane

Sarah said...

I don't subscribe to magazines, but I still pick up copies on occasion. Yes, it's still great to hold them and revisit them. My problem is clearing them out of the house. I tend to hold on! '-) Would love to be the lucky reader. And of course I'm a follower!!!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Diana, I love this magazine and try and pick it up for the seasons. Yes, it is still so nice to hold a mag and read and have for reference. It is a generous giveaway and I would love to enter too. Of course I am a follower~~~
Have a great evening,
Hugs and Blessings

Nonnie said...

Okay, I'm in. I enjoy magazines when I'm in the doctor's office. You can choose me if you're feeling lucky! My mom's maiden name was Leverich and my daddy was good looking. So who would care what his blood type was? I'm hoping the weirdness of these comments will catch your attention!! Seriously, you probably should pick someone who has a flair for decorating. I don't. Everything stays the same in my house. Xoxo

Missy George said...

These days leaving a comment is jumping thru hoops but I'll give it a try...Now besides signing in to Google, I have to do that "prove you're not a robot thing..

Pat Edwards said...

Yippee...what a great prize!!! This is one FANTASTIC magazine,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Linda said...

I'm sure I don't have a 'snowballs chance in h**" but I'll comment anyway. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Now this is a great giveaway! Nothing like looking through a magazine, over and over again!
Thanks for the chance...can't wait to see the princess pick the winner!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

He's funny. :)

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

That sure is the sweetest little giveaway you are having! I was just looking at that magazine at the store today and left it there! Very kind and generous of you to have this giveaway! THANK YOU!.
warmly,
deb

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

I do love a magazine in my hand...so many favorites aren't published anymore and it makes me sad.
This one looks gorgeous.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Diana, Great giveaway and I would LOVE to win this subscription. Of course I am a follower of yours!
Hugs,
Sherry

Julie Smith said...

I love this Hope you pick me

bj said...

hahhhaaa....you surely know the way to our hearts, Nana. There is so much fun in getting a great magazine in the mail. When I get my monthly copy of COUNTRY LIVING..I stop whatever I'm doing, heat the water for a cup of tea, search for something to nibble on, go to the bathroom so I won't have to do it while reading, turn my phone off, don't answer when Mr. Sweet calls my name, close all the blinds, pull my car into the garage so no one knows I'm home, go back to the bathroom ONE MORE TIME, just to be SURE....and snuggle down in my comfy chair and read that baby from cover to cover.
Please do add my name to your most generous giveaway.
All that talk about the bathroom...now I gotta go. :)
xo

Mindy said...

LOL - too funny. I don't have any subscriptions anymore for those exact reasons. I used to LOVE getting a magazine in the mail. I've never read this one, but based on the cover, it's a good one.

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

Count me in, dear!

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

wow. so many people seem to love this magazine! I had a subscription last year, but seemed to get it late each time it came out so let it expire. But, free, that's worth it.

Marlene said...

Finally became an official follower even though I've been following you for a quite now. As a grandmother to four I enjoy when you talk about your grandbabies. I will love to win a subscription!

Missy George said...

This is a test..nite nite :)

Blondie's Journal said...

You are a doll! I already get the magazine so count me out, but a big thank you for being so generous. I LOVE this magazine and keep every copy! :)

joanne said...

I was going to say that you are something of a comment *----* but I don't like to use those kinds of words, or ruin my chance at winning! Thanks for such a sweet give-away, I used to have magazines all over the house and rip out pages, put them in a binder for future use. Still have most of them...we WERE the original pinners!

Teresa said...

That looks like an interesting magazine.

One More Time Events said...

What a great giveaway!!! Would love to win this subscription ...a girl can't have to many magazines!!!

Dolly Sarrio said...

I would love to win please enter me too Diana!

Maureen Wyatt said...

My mother's maiden name was Mulholland and my father was O positive. Oh wait, you didn't need that. I lived for Victoria Magazine and would have gone without milk in the house to get the latest issue. There really is something about magazines that is special. Plus, they are a lot easier to take into a bubble bath than a computer!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I'd love to enter your nice giveaway Diana. I love looking at magazines.

Tete said...

Leaving my name for the drawing...and you better pick me this time!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Wish I could find magazines anywhere in the stands here, but no, there aren't any American ones! I adore having and feeling and turning pages and stopping at a pic I love and would love to reproduce! A beautiful giveaway my friend. Hope I'm lucky, lol! If you can't send it here, honey don't worry! Have a great weekend.
FABBY

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh...hubby says if I win we Can pay for the mailing, lol!

Diana, I am going to have to start Blog Lovin daily to catch up with you. I simply hate it when I miss a post or several of yours. Maybe I should just subscribe to you-then I'd get you daily.





















































Hi Diana, I simply can't believe how often I miss a post or several, I think I'll start watching blog lovin or maybe subscribe to your daily feed-so I don't miss the cool things you are doing. Love this post, so enter me my friend. You always have the best mags and many I can't find here in Colorado. Now, I'm going back to see what other posts I missed and to visit these friends of yours.
Have a fantastic weekend dear one.
Hugs, Noreen




Sweet Tea said...

Pick me! Pick me! I'd love that magazine, Diana.
Great Giveaway, GF!!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Well now that it a sweet giveaway! :)

Carol said...

I've never gotten this magazine before, but I'm a total sucker for Christmas issues of so many magazines. The front covers get me every time. I keep a stack of magazines on my nightstand for when I'm not in the mood to read a novel.....this time of year, the magazines win out every time! Thank you for such a sweet and generous give-away, Diana!

Shirley said...

You can take the magazine with you to read. You can't take the computer unless you have a laptop. I still love flipping pages of the magazines at my leisure. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Oh my! I know I shouldn't enter....but I sure would love to have this magazine. I've dropped all of my subscriptions and always loved getting a new magazine in the mail! I know I shouldn't enter....oh, I said that, didn't I? hahahaha! Sweet hugs and thanks a bunch, Diane

Cranberry Morning said...

I can't believe I haven't signed up for that fabulous giveaway! I scrolled through 98 comments to try to find mine. Not there. Do please enter me in the giveaway. Phew! Deadline coming right up! I nearly missed out!

living from glory to glory said...

Okay, this is the 100th comment! Gosh, am I slow or what! Love having a magazine on my table to browse through! xo Roxy

chateau chic said...

This is a fabulous giveaway! I have to admit...I find it more relaxing to sit down and look through a magazine than hop around to blogs. I guess that's probably not the politically correct thing to say in blogland.

Kathy said...

I am your newest follower and can't resist throwing my hat in the ring on this one! Thank you for offering such a generous giveaway. Someone is going to be VERY happy!

Miss Kitty said...

Please enter me in the giveaway! I do love magazines...don't read many books 'cause I am pouring through my magazines.
