A Corgyncombe Courant Giveaway!!!

To celebrate the Christmastide season The Corgyncombe Courant is having a Giveaway for Their Dear Readers!

The Corgyncombe Courant is Giving Away
A Reproduction Yellowware Bowl with Green Seaweed Decoration!

This wonderful, handmade in the USA, bowl measures 8 1/2 inches across and 4 1/4 inches high.

In the summer the seaweed pattern on the bowl reminds Diane of dill and in the winter of princess pine. The bowl looks so nice with apples, grapes, clove orange pomanders, ornaments, gingerbread cookies, cider, popcorn, cranberries, pinecones and greenery! We know you can think of more uses! You can use it as a mixing bowl or a serving bowl.

This bowl would make a wonderful addition to your country, prim, old fashioned, and Victorian kitchen!!!

Like their friend Tasha Tudor, Diane and her daughter Sarah love using yellowware bowls!

As Beth reminded us, Tasha Tudor had a splendid collection of yellowware which included pieces decorated with "seaweed". Many pieces of Tasha's yellowware appeared in her illustrations. Cheerful yellowware certainly creates a warm and cozy feeling in the kitchen!

We know that the winner is going to love this bowl, as it is amongst Diane's most favorite things!

This Giveaway is open to The Corgyncombe Courant's Dear Readers in the United States and Canada.

You may use The Corgyncombe Courant's large or small photograph of the bowl with apples in a blog post on your own blog or on the sidebar of your blog to inform your friends of this splendiferous giveaway!

Dear Diane and Sarah,

yellowware bowl.

Thank you,

Oh, my goodness me! I would simply love to win this delightful bowl! I have my great grandmother's yellow ware bread bowl ~ it is a treasure ~ but sadly it has a long crack down one side.
Your bowl is perfect for wintertime ~ the pattern reminds me of our Douglas Fir so common here in Western Washington! Thank you for this very special giveaway!

Dear Diane and Sarah,

I have been a big fam of your blog and of Tasha Tudor. I would love to win this bowl and I would present it to my oldest daughter who is 15. She loves to cook almost as much as she loves all things 'Tasha'. We, like you, love doing old fashion things together and it has been a blessing to have two daughters who love old fashion living, crafts and Tasha Tudor!
Merriest of Christmases,

Cross Stitch Woman said...

I love Tasha's books and I am so happy I found your blog. I have a Tasha Tudor Christmas Book and simply love it.
The bowl is a nice "give a way"!
Merry Christmas!!!

Dear Diane and Sarah~

I do so enjoy your blog with all the beautiful pictures. I've long been a Tasha fan, over 50 years since I was given my first Tasha book for attending Sunday School. Like for so many others, Tasha also inspired me in so many ways! I miss her and find comfort and joy reading your blog and how you carry on her traditions. Thank you for posting! And I would love to win the yellowware bowl -- what a wonderful giveaway! Barbara

Your blog, by far is probably the most beautiful I have seen so far. And our taste in music and life are almost exact!! Very pleasant and relaxing, nice to view with a tea. My 10 year old daughter enjoys probably more than I. She has been a Tasha follower since birth. I bought her corgi Beatrix last year for her ninth birthday and she has been raising chickens since age two, no exaggeration. She does it all from real soap making to baking. Thank you for the pleasure of your sharing. My grandmother's yellowware bowl handed down to me, and I am 51 was knocked over by my cat 4 years ago, I was devestated. This would make a beautiful replacement.I will happily post your giveaway on my blog.

Merry Christmas and A happy New Year

I would love to enter your yellow ware giveaway. Your Nubians inspired me to enter - I have a small herd of Nubian goats in Northern kentucky - which Tasha inspired me to look into as well as Welsh Corgis - two of which we enjoy greatly...........:<) Both of these breeds of animals give us such joy and fun and wonderful product from the Nubians. This is my first time on your blog - I will be back - thank you so much! Jan - Twin Meadows Nubians -

I stumbled upon your blog just yesterday, and have thoroughly enjoyed looking through all the writings and images of your beautiful everyday life. I am inspired! As an ardent admirer of Tasha Tudor's way of life, I find it most encouraging to encounter others who are following in her footsteps.

If this sweet bowl chooses me, it will be lovingly introduced to my dolls and animal friends on my parents old buffet, where it will take a place of honor and be filled with fragrant pine and antique old German ornaments dating back 3 generations. It will rest in good company.

Hello and Happy Christmas Diane!~ Thank you for stopping by my blog, and I am thrilled to see that you're having a giveaway! I just love this bowl and the pretty sea weed decoration. Tasha is always such an inspiration to me, and her illustrations hark back to an ideal image of home. I would love to have something that says "Tasha!" as much as this darling bowl! It would look so pretty in my little kitchen :)

Happy holidays to you!~
