Happy Birthday June Babies! ...and a June give away all can enter


Lucky June babies born in the month where spring ends and summer begins! With roses as your birthday flower and pearl as your birthstone...passion, health and longevity attributed to them and yours to claim.

"A swarm of bees in May is worth a load of hay.
A swarm of bees in June is worth a silver spoon.
A swarm of bees in July is not worth a fly."

In honor of all June birthday babies post a comment and you'll be entered for our give away. Are you a June baby? Someone you love? What do you think of when you think of June? What's that? Oh, you want to know what the winner will receive? I will tell you this, it won't be just one thing, one item will smell sweet (of course !) and there are clues in this post and one or more of the items is on the web shop. IF you can guess what one of the items is (there will be at least three) I will enter you in another drawing and you double your chances! The winner(s), yes I will draw for two this time, will be announced on Friday...or maybe Thursday all entries must be in by this Thursday,June 5th South Georgia time...ALSO WITH EVERY PURCHASE at The Scented Cottage webshop during June we will include a sample of our Rose Memory Mist.
Until then my wish for you: May you enjoy your June days and the promise of summer.

While I do appreciate your comments the give away is over and the drawings have been held, please check back for new give aways. Thank-you!

Hi Francie,
June--makes me think of weddings--June brides.

What fun--a riddle! I think one of the gifts will be the busy bee midi spoon! Too cute!

Silena said...

Hi Francie,
Thank you for this lovely post. We June babies are so lucky....to me, June is magical...the gardens are abloom, the sun shines bright most everywhere, family gatherings for birthdays and Fathers Day are joyeous and filled with pretties for the table and for the pallette. Both your blog and your website remind of June....they are beautiful, full of sunshine and flowers and I can almost smell the scents. Could a silver spoon be one of your secrets?

Becky said...

I am a June baby(14th). Please enter me in the giveaway.

Patricia said...

Hi, Francie, what fun. I'm not a June baby, I'm a July baby. My guess for the giveaway is the terra cotta apple diffuser with the bumble bee on the bag.

What a nice and fun giveaway Francie! My daughter is a June baby, June 7th and she'll be 14 this year! WOW! I looked around your site and I was drawn to the Busy Bee Midi Spoons, and the Three Roses Sachets, not sure what else could be a clue in your post, so those are my 2 out of 3 items guesses!

Debbie said...

Hi Francie...what a fun giveaway! I also think that one of your gifts will be the bee spoon...but Karen has already guess that so my next guess will be one of your beautiful scented silk roses (like the one in the picture). Be sure to draw my name!!!

xo,
Debbie

Marie said...

Hi Francie,
Visiting your blog is always delightful. Please enter me in the drawing. I'm guessing roses and pearls (faux) may be part of the prize.

HiFrancie, how fun is this? June always makes me think of weddings and roses.
My guess is the pretty rose on this post and maybe the bee spoons and Rose Memory Mist? Total guess here, but fun. Thanks Francie... hugs, gail

Rose Petals & Blooms said...

Sweet Greetings Francie! I'm not a June baby either, I'm a May baby..
Uhmmm.. the Busy Bee Midi Spoons and Rose Sachets were my guess. So I'm stumped if it's not correct.
Oh well, at least I'm entered! lol..
This is fun Francie, I love contests!
Big Hugs,

teresa said...

What a wonderful idea! I could almost smell the sweet scents as I visited your blog and website! My guess is something scented with rose, perhaps a rose sachet. Cant' wait to find out what it is, Always, Teresa.

Deborah said...

OH! OH! OH! My fourth grandbaby...a boy...will be born by C-section on JUNE 13!!!

Perhaps one of the gifts will be the Golden Rose Spoon and the Pink/Red Roses Tea Cup Candle...I know that would smell wonderful!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Sweet Francie, This is a terrific post and fab give-away. I am not a June baby but a January baby. Does that count? Six months difference. LOL...My sweet Grand-baby Boo is a June baby and my Mom is a June baby and my late Dad was a June baby and my SIL is a June baby. And lots of anniversaries in June too.

Jewel Jernstedt said...

I'm a June baby too! Let's see, the bee spoon... maybe...:)
Lovely giveway and maybe i'll win me a birthday present.

mom2boys said...

I love June it makes me think of Weddings, flowers, and of course my one and only niece who will be 4 on

June reminds me of "June Gloom" and signals that my Birthday is a mere two months away.

Mary Bearden said...

Must be a doozy of a prize if you are keeping this a secret! Can't wait to see what it is.

June is a great month - not my birthday month, though. I'm ready for sun, swimming, and lazy days eating popsicles. Must get a Slip and Slide this year. Those were a blast, and so is this contest! Great idea. Thanks.

RoyalCheryl said...

I am a June 29th baby along with my faternal twin sister. I am 9 minutes older. I think you will give me a rose, and also give her one. Thanks for the June giveaway! Happy Birthday June babies.

I'm not a June baby, but it's my favorite summer month! :)

Hi Francie...popping in to say Hello!!

My Vintage Charm - Susan said...

This is lovely, thanks for the invitation!

Yes I am a June baby! June reminds me of fun filled days at Grandma's house, days I will treasure forever!

Since the month of June offers roses as it's gift to all, I say roses will be the winning prize!

No June birthdays in our immediate family, but I celebrate June as the birthmonth for summer. June 1 always begins the countdown 'til schools out. We plan lazy days for a couple of weeks before we leave for vacation and camps start. With school coming to an end, there's always less homework and the entire family spends more time outside (even the 16yo who hates bugs and dirt;)
