Time For A Giveaway...


This giveaway is now closed
Time for a giveaway!  I reached 400 followers this week!  I'm always amazed at how much fun and how creative blogging is, and I love all the wonderful, supportive friendships I've made here!
To thank you all, I've put together a little giveaway of fun little romantic goodies perfect for Valentines Day...


a charming silverplate dish full of white buttons, some vintage Valentines and rick rack...
 

 some vintage French vocabulary cards... baiser means "to kiss"...


one of the little Meakin floral dishes I found recently and some crinkled vintage pink seam binding...


three little vintage cupid/cherub cake decorations...


a pair of old baby shoes, and what I think is a vintage rosary holder...
(update~ thanks to several of you who let me know this is a Holy Water font or holder)


To enter, if you aren't a follower, please become one...then just leave me a comment on this post.  That's it!
The giveaway will end Wednesday January 19th 10 PM CST.
Thanks so much to all of you!  Can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

Until next time...
Linda
