It's Time for a Giveaway


GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED


I thought it was about time for a giveaway when I reached my one year blogging anniversary last month.  I published my 100th post shortly after that, and now I've reached 500 followers!!  Three big reasons to celebrate and to say "thank you" to everyone for all the inspiration you've given me over this past year.

I wanted to include some of the treasures that inspire me....

A scalloped edge milk glass jar filled with vintage mother of pearl buttons, two different pieces of vintage lace rolled up and secured with rhinestone shoe clips....

A little Chanel perfume bottle filled with pearls and decorated with vintage buttons and a rhinestone....

Two postcards wrapped with vintage lace, another piece of lace secured with an old clip on earring, and some pink floral trim wrapped on a wooden thread spool....

This is a simple, but elegant necklace I made with a vintage chandelier crystal.  It hangs from a 21"  silver plated ball chain.  I'd be more than happy to make it longer for the giveaway winner.

I was in the bookstore recently and started looking through this beautiful hardback book by Jo Packham and Jenny Doh.  Book of Inspiration, Where Women CreateI was amazed with all the gorgeous studios featured in this book, and knew it would be a perfect addition to my giveaway.   Such an inspiration!





I wish I had drawers like these to keep all my supplies organized.

Did you notice I like mannequins?


My giveaway closes at 6:00pm PST on August 30th.  I'll use the True Random Number Generator to determine the winner and then announce the winner on August 31st.

To enter:
1)  Just leave me a comment here on this post.  
2)  If you'd like a second chance to win, I'd love to have you follow me.  Just leave a comment telling me you're a new follower or that you're already a follower.
3)  For a third chance, you can spread the word by putting my giveaway button on your sidebar, or mention it in a blog post.  You'll find the giveaway button near the top of my sidebar.

Please be sure to leave a separate comment for each thing you do:-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Hugs, Betsy

  151. Hi Betsy,
    I found your blog through Pretty Things,Lori McDaniel Anderson on Facebook. Wow what a joy to scroll thorough your blog. I got inspired and honestly a bit jealous, as I live in Alaska and we don't have the luxury or joy of junk stores (we have Salvation Army) up here, sigh. So thank for the eye candy and ideas.
    Congrats on your anniversary.
