GIVEAWAY TIME!!!

Today is my birthday, and tomorrow is my one year blogiversary, but YOU get the presents!!!

I can't believe I've been blogging for a year, especially since I wanted to quit after the first week! But I'm so glad that I stuck with it, because I've met so many nice people!

Here is what I'm giving away, and I'll be adding to this all week. It's something old and something new. Sounds like we're getting married, doesn't it?!

First is a jar with a vintage decal, just perfect for tea, coffee, buttons or whatever!

Next is a divided tray from Target. I bought one of these, and I can't wait to use it this summer!

Along with four polka dot plates that match the divided tray.

And a necklace that I made just for you. It's the kind where you can change the picture inside, and put whatever you want in there.
All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post, and I will pick a winner by random number generator a week from today. As I said, I will be adding more to this as the week goes along. Thank you so much for reading I blog. I appreciate each and every one of you! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to try and sneak a taste of my birthday cake!

Dawn said...

Cute, cute, cute, Carol!I haven't seen those at Target either! Maybe cause the last two times I've been I've had the kids with me and couldn't give it all my attention! I love the necklace and would probably leave the rose in it.

You know, you girls have got me all confused with my decorating. I was pretty focused on where it was going until I started blogging. Now I want some of everything!

Into Vintage said...

tammyCA said...

Happy Birthday and congrats on your blog anniversary! Yours is one of my faves as we seem to love the same things. I must turn away from looking at that sweet, sweet jar with the decal...I'm partial to vintage decals and just love it on that red top jar...sigh. Hey, I have 4 red polka dot plates from Target...yellow would be a great compliment...and, cherries are dear to me, and my girls still eat out of divided plates (I did not see those at Target 'tho). Well, cheers to whoever wins, they will be a happy camper.

Sarah A. said...

Happy, happy blogiversary to you! (And a happy belated birthday, too! I hope you're like me and try to make it last about a week...)I just found your blog via Shiny Red Houses, and I'm super glad I did. I loooove the vintage goodness, love the cute tray, and the necklace is just gorgeous.
Also love: the Sears Roebuck house! (Not included in the giveaway, I know.) I've been so crazy about them since I read an article about them a few years ago. I didn't realize I'd grown up surrounded by them, but as soon as I saw the picture, they reminded me of home. So, so lovely.

Cindy said...

Good evening..and Happy Blogiversary..and a Happy Birthday too.
I just became a follower! I was checking out Sandy's blogs that she follows from 521 Lake St.
I have seen your red stuff and your vintage stuff before..What a collection!! I'm looking forward to visiting in the future.
