An Island Mom Christmas Giveaway!

They say Christmas is the season of giving, so far be it from me to argue. Thus, in celebration of this holiday season, and as a way of sharing a little bit of the coastal Carolinas with y’all, I’m giving away holiday linens from one of my favorite coastal Carolina companies, Lowcountry Linens. Their beautiful coastal prints on everything from placemats to scarves are what first caught my eye, but they also have a wide selection of holiday prints as well.

IMG_9162This giveaway includes four cocktail napkins with handprinted poinsettias on them and a kitchen towel with a handprinted palm tree and the words “Deck the Palms Y’all.” It seems an appropriate way to celebrate the season.

The giveaway runs from now until Saturday, December 6 at midnight (EST). Any time you like An Island Mom on Facebook, share a post from An Island Mom on Facebook, follow An Island Mom on Twitter, retweet this post, and/or comment on any posts published between now and next Saturday, you will be entered to win. A winner will be chosen and announced after the contest ends.

Enter early and often, folks! I can’t wait to hear from you!


My opinions and the giveaway items are entirely my own; I have not been compensated in any way. I just love their stuff, y’all. :)
