Weekend Giveaway {Midwest Magnolia}

Weekend Giveaway {Midwest Magnolia}

Today I get to give away something I adore!

My friend Melissa from the blog Midwest Magnolia and new Etsy shop, designed and created this very special pillow cover for me and I LOVE it.

Weekend Giveaway {Midwest Magnolia}

I am also the owner of one of Melissa’s laptop bags, made with the same adorable fabric. In fact, it was because of my laptop bag that I ended up with this pillow cover.

I loved my laptop bag so much when I saw it sitting on my sofa that I almost tried to stuff a pillow in it.

Fortunately, Melissa saved me from myself and made me a real honest pillow cover.

Pretty cute, huh?

And if you are the lucky winner of today’s giveaway, she’s going to make a pillow cover for you too! I don’t even have to give my own pillow away, she’ll make one just for you.

Visit Melissa’s blog Midwest Magnolia and her new Etsy shop!

And then leave a comment here to enter the giveaway! One entry per person today! Pure and simple.

Good luck and Happy Labor Day Weekend!
