Blogaversary countdown give-away continues!

Well shoot! I forgot alll about the countdown post last Friday. *turns red* I'm sorry! Anyway, I am adding 2 items to the tin today to make up for it. You've probably seen glimpses of my tole collection in previous posts. (I'll share pics of it soon) This is a stray that didn't make it onto the wall w/ the others. I have another red one just like it & then one in black, as well. They're small...about 4" by 6" so they make good change holders or jewelry trays on the dresser. This one is in great condition & I know y'all will enjoy it.

And to make up for the missed post last week, I am also adding a pair of vintage clip-on earrings. I have a large collection of vintage jewelry & am happy to share a bit of it. I use vintage clip-on earrings for everything but earrings. I try to wear them but they make my ears hurt! So I use them as barrettes...they hold a small strand of hair easily. I also use them to dress up bottles & apothecary jars, they look gorgeous in a crystal bowl & I have a bunch on a couple of old shutters, that are used as "photo clips".


These are lovely & I had a hard time giving them up but in the tin they go.

I've packed the earrings in a mini-"hatbox" because the hatbox symbolizes another of my collections. Here's all the treasures packed up til now....the old tin, the vintage hankie, the adorable cherub, red tole tray & vintage earrings in mini-hatbox. Remember, I will add a new treasure from one of my collections, every Friday & will draw a name on my blogaversary, on Feb 25th.




To get your name in the hat, just leave a comment on my blogaversary countdown on Fridays. For every Friday that you leave a comment, a slip w/ your name goes into the hat. If you want 3 more tries added to the hat, add this button, w/ a link back to my blog to your sidebar & let me know about it.

This give-away is restricted to the continental US...sorry! And you don't have to have a blog to enter but you must leave an email address so that I can contact you. Good luck!
