Giveaway Winner!! Is It You?

March 15, 2016



So I want to thank everyone for all of the lovely comments and sweet wishes left for me as I celebrated my three year blog anniversary last week. I'm excited that so many of you decided to enter the giveaway. I had entries in the comments, on Facebook and via email, as a bunch of new people signed up to receive my posts. Thank you.

I was counting and recording entries all week long!

It was a thrill to interact with some new readers, too...well, perhaps not new readers, but readers that have never commented before. I know that it's hard to leave a comment here on the blog if you are not a blogger. You can comment anonymously, but it's still kind of a hassle and without a profile, I can't always respond directly to you.

However, did you know that if you are an email subscriber and you have a question or comment, you can just hit reply and it comes right back to me?

Yup. It does!

Last week, Terri did just that and I am so happy that she did. We chatted for a bit about curtains that I had apparently inspired her to make!! This has happened to me before and it's honestly the best present I could ever receive. She totally made my day.

I posted about my ring clip rooster curtains...


...and Terri made these pretties. Aren't they fabulous?


I absolutely love the chicken wire border, the red trim and those roosters. I'm drawn to the bold, crisp, contrast. Now, she has inspired me to lighten up my kitchen a bit for spring. I've already been to the fabric store.

Each week I share a DIY or craft and send it out into the giant void that is the internet. I get a lot of lovely comments, but I never really know if anyone makes anything I have posted about...unless they let me know and frankly, that happens very infrequently.

When it does, it's truly a magical feeling.

Thank you, Terri, for sharing and making my anniversary so special!

Ok, so on to the big announcement that you've all been waiting for...drumroll please....and the winner of the tulip tote bag giveaway, chosen by RandomResult.com, is Julie from Julie's Lifestyle!!


Woo hoo! Congratulations Julie!!!

Oh and as for me, nope, I didn't get a tulip bag for my birthday. I got the real thing instead! These beauties are from my gorgeous friend Rue. What a way to brighten my day...thank you my friend. xo 


And thanks again to everyone who entered. I always enjoy bringing you giveaways and I hope to have another one for you very, very soon! 

Keep your eyes peeled for the details sometime in April! 

You can follow all things Exquisitely Unremarkable either by signing up to receive my emails (in the sidebar) or on Facebook!

Hope to see you in the comments!

  5. Congrats to Julie! Such pretty tulips too! It's so nice that Terri let you know she was inspired like that! I totally know what you mean because I always wonder if anyone actually tries any of my diy's or recipes. One of my most popular posts is a crockpot potato soup recipe and I've only had one person take the time to email me and let me know they tried it and loved it. Anyway, happy Tuesday!

    1. It's always a mystery isn't it, Lisa. I see the hits and people comment and say 'this is wonderful, I am going to try it'...but we never really know. I love it when someone actually gets in touch to say that they did it! Totally makes blogging worth it! :) Potato soup, huh? Off to check that out!

    Congratulations to Julie!

    And hugs to you,
