A Low Tide High Style GIVEAWAY!



To all of you who have visited my blog, commented, or become followers I want to say Thank You!  I really do appreciate your comments and just the fact that you take time out of your busy schedules to spend a little time with me and my thoughts each day!

As a little token of my appreciation I wanted to host a Giveaway of some of the pretty, beachy things I've found as I have visited local shops here in southern Maryland aka "The Land of Pleasant Living!"  Because I never like buying just "one" of anything, I will be picking 2 winners for my first Giveaway!

All of the items in the Giveaway were purchased by Low Tide High Style.

Here is the lovely Sea Anemone Plate I gave you a "sneak peek" at earlier!  It came from Traditions of Loveville, and I found it when my son and I were out on our little shopping jaunt the other day.  I love the shape of this little decorative plate and I love that I can always find something to bring home from Traditions, it's been a favorite of mine for YEARS!  If you've never visited Traditions in Loveville, Maryland, it's worth the drive!



Here's a close up of the plate.  I love the crackle finish on the anemone!





Lola Belle Co. is where you'll find these next items offered in the Giveaway.  Their website may be a work in progress, but their store is lovely and offers something for nearly everyone.  If you happen to be in Leonardtown, Maryland, make sure you pop in and see what they have and tell them Kat sent you!

These Seaspray sachets smell heavenly...or like the sea, which to me are synonymous! 
Each winner will receive one, and you'll love how it will freshen up a room and remind you of 
a walk along the beach at sunset! 







I also found these yummy seafood spice packages.  The packaging is truly beautiful, they would make a thoughtful "just because" gift don't you think?



Yum!!!



Seafood anyone?





Next it was off to Pink Beach, located in the Wildewood Shopping Center in California, Maryland.  Pink Beach is a beach lover's dream filled with fun, funky colors and great gifts.  You can't go in to their store and not come out with a smile on your face and a pretty bag filled with beachy goodies in your hand!

My find for today was this truly "cool" coral votive holder!  It holds two votives and wouldn't it look wonderful sitting next to your beautiful new sea anemone plate?



I just love the fact that it holds not ONE but TWO little votive candles!






OK, hold on to your hats, we're not done yet!

Our final Beachy item is a beautiful shell found at Cecil's Country Store.  You've heard me rave about this store before, and for good reason!  Located in Great Mills, Maryland, and housed in an old country store (complete with squeaky floorboards), it's filled with delightful finds!  Candles, artwork, and gift items are just some of the wonderful things you'll find here. There's even a whole room dedicated to nautical decor, so you're sure to find something you'll love! 

I just couldn't pass up this beautiful aqua seashell!



Isn't it elegant, and it's even pretty on the inside!  P.S. I "own" one!



So there you have it folks, our little Sea Anemone Plate is lonely no more!!


You'll have 3 chances to win. 

1.  For ONE chance, Post a Comment letting me know what you'd like to see featured on my blog in the future or what you've enjoyed so far.

2.  For a SECOND chance, Become a Follower.  ALL followers will be registered for a second chance, so if you aren't "already" a follower...what are you waiting for?!

3.  For a THIRD chance, Post A Link to the Giveaway on your own blog.  Be sure to come back and leave me a comment letting me know you've posted so that I can add your name for a third chance at winning!

If you don't have a blog, don't worry, you still have 2 chances to win!!

You can qualify for the Giveaway until Midnight PST on Wednesday, January 27th.  

The winner will be announced on Thursday, January 28th.

PLEASE BE SURE YOU LEAVE ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU IF YOUR NAME IS DRAWN.  WITHOUT ONE I CAN'T LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU'VE WON OR SEND YOU YOUR GIFT!

Sorry, no international shipping available on this particular Giveaway, only Canada and The U.S. qualify this time.  International followers, don't despair...I promise to hold an "International" only giveaway in the future!

  34. First time visitor and have thoroughly enjoyed wandering around your lovely site. Hope you're enjoying warmer weather; snow is headed our way as well as cold weather and wind. Brrrr! We're in southwest VA so it's fun to be at the beach, if just for a while; thanks.

    I did read back on some of your posts (which lead me to Mr. Slipper Man on another blog — so funny) and everything you write is interesting. I do love posts on the areas where bloggers live, I can them my virtual vacations, so perhaps you'll do some of those in the future.

    AND, I did sign up to follow you! I'll be back tomorrow to tell you I blogged about your giveaway, for now I have to get to work.
