One World, One Heart Giveaway

I recently came across a blog hosted by Lisa.  It is called A Whimsical Bohemian.  Here she is hosting the One World, One Heart giveaway.  It's a blogging event to unite bloggers around the world.



For this giveaway, I have made a homemade pincushion on a pedestal of sorts.  The stand is a thrift store find, well suited for this purpose.  There are two pictures below of the same pincushion from different vantage points.  Leave your comment on this post to be entered into my drawing.  Please only post once, and do so by February 15th.  A winner will be selected using the random number generator.
