400th Blog post - fabric giveaway!



I am sitting at my kitchen bench, drinking my very strong morning coffee and waiting for it to start running through my body. I have become way too dependent on my morning caffeine. So much so that I will get a headache if I go without and I will be in a foul mood. I am starting to think that maybe I should detox and kick my coffee dependency. Yes. Maybe one day, but not right now.  I am preparing to holiday in September and I have a whole lot I would like to finish in the coming weeks leading up to it. Feeling sick and grumpy is not part of the plan. A spring detox, maybe...

ANYWAY! I sat down to write this post while I drank my coffee and realised that this would be post #400 which I suppose is a bit of a milestone. So I want to give away a special prize to say a massive thank you to my loveliest readers, those of you who have been around since the beginning and those who have just found me. Thank you all so much for the endless encouragement. The kind comments that always brighten my day. The gorgeous emails that remind me that there are so many vintage loving, crafty souls out there in the world! You are all amazing and I am endlessly grateful for your support.  This giveaway is open world wide and all you have to do is leave a comment to enter.

I have excitedly put together this cute prize. This precious vintage tin with all its contents. So far there is a vintage fabric bundle of FQ's, a fabric bow for your hair or to wear as a brooch, a cute pair of resin earrings and a cat pendant necklace...

Leave a comment! Feel free to share on your FB page, Instagram or blog and then tell me in the comments to gain extra entries... I will draw the winner on Saturday morning. I love giveaways! I love entering them and I love offering them. Enter away!! Happy Tuesday beautiful people.

  77. I am a sucker for vintage tins. I also love vintage fabrics which are a lot harder to find. I am a fairly new follower and just love your beautiful dresses....so feminine!

    My husband recently found a brand new, never used sewing machine at an estate sale and now that I have two, my daughter has started sewing with me. Nothing big, because I am a fly by the seat of my pants seamstress. She is a headband fanatic, especially in the summer, and has taken fabric scraps and some buttons from my vintage collection (in vintage tins, of course) and put together some nice headbands.

    Anyway......Congrats on your 400th post! I also posted on your facebook page and was already a follower on Pinterest (of course!), but have a question. Is there a tab to click to share on my facebook page? I could not find it.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Congratulations on the 400! Oh, how I would love to have some of your fabric, every picture you put on instagram makes me drool :P

    ReplyDelete
  79. Congrats on #400! Some of your fabric would give me the motivation I'm needing to sew! I will blog post!
