okay…i admit it. i’ve never had a giveaway. i’ve had a cazillion posts and haven’t once given a thing away… sooooo i have been on a tea staining kick and the family is feeling a bit better today, so i put a package (because that is about all i can do) together for anyone out there that likes tea stained linens, old ephemera book pages, and some pearls and smalls…..SALVAGED STUFF….PRETTY STUFF….NEAT OLD STUFF….
i appreciate all the support and readership of my blog. without the folks and friends that stop by to support me, i would have to turn to shopping on ebay and etsy instead of writing a bunch of blah, blah, blah and sharing my day to day life in the midst of a deployment, junking jaunts and kid crazy dazes. soooo thanks so much for comments and support.
i’ve tea stained most of these items… except the doily bowl above. i love it. i love the lil white salt shaker as well. perfect for hatpins. also, a stone egg from germany, pearls, a key, buttons, a lil angel, tulle…and some gloves and runners (tea dyed of course)….and another view….
more… like this frame, old lace, mill flower and doily underneath.
a bracelet i made from old lace and a button….
a sweet lace bonnet (head not included) for you all that love old dolls and doll heads….
a vintage hat…filled with lace (all tea stained), a vintage slip, another picture of the gloves…..
i will also throw in some other small surprises as well……
just comment an i will add the names to a hat (vintage of course)…have arek and zoey help me pick a name and then i will annouce the winner on monday night!!!!! that gives everyone that wants to participate almost three days!!!!!!! i don’t think i’ll post anything from now until then.
whomever wins can send me their address and i will do my best to mail out their package next week…i HATE to go to the post office….rachel and ron can vouch for that.
arek and zoey are getting a little better. they are fighting as i write this, so that means they must be feeling better. argh…what can i say?????
you all have a great weekend….
thank GOODNESS for all of you. you all are an inspiration and you help me get thru my crazy junking life….one day at a time….
