Lately I've been so overwhelmed with Things to Do, that last night I finally made myself a daily task list for this week. As a reformed list-maker (who swore to herself she'd never let life get that complicated again), it was not in the plan to start THAT up again. But, being desperate to get control of those Things, I forged ahead. And you know what? This post is the final Thing on my list for Monday. Ta-da!
So, it's time to announce my 200th Post Giveaway. Finally. Drum roll please...... ok, forget the d*** drums, let's just get to it.
There are three prizes, and there will be three winners who will be chosen by Specific Husband Picker (as opposed to Random Number Generator). The first person selected will get her choice of the three prizes, second person selected will choose from the two prizes remaining, and the third person gets what's left. (I hate to use that French term "Le Ftovers").
Above is the Threads prize. Most of it is cotton; floss and perle. However, the bottom three are silks and there is some fun couchable fiber in there, too.
And then we have the Button Prize. Lots of these are vintage. I know, I know, there are no really, really to-die-for buttons here. BUT, I will beef it up to about 100 buttons and include a carved MOP (mother-of-pearl), and a few other special ones (my choice). If you are a CQ'er or someone who sews childrens clothes or aprons, there are some great buttons here for that.
This is the fabric pack. Now that I see it on the screen, it doesn't look too exciting. Although not all pieces show, this is a group of 20 fabric pieces, each at least 60 sq. inches (9x7", 10x6", 8 x8" or greater). I will beef this one up also to include 25 total pieces, and will even do a little custom color tailoring for the winner. I've got lots of lovely new fancy fabrics, including brights for those who (like me) prefer saturated colors. Oh, and while not all pieces are silk like the front one, at least 25% of the pack will be silk.
1. This Giveaway runs from now until Sunday the 18th at noon (Mountain time, since that's where I live). In other words, we'll draw names next Sunday afternoon.
2. Comment on any post between now and Sunday, and you will be entered 1 time.
3. Mention this Giveaway on your blog and link back here and you'll be entered a 2nd time.
4. Become a follower and you will be entered a third time.
DH Bruce will return to work next week, and our last big project this week while he's home is to begin photographing items for my Etsy shop and Ebay listings. I'm also thinking of adding pages to this blog to show some item's I'll be selling.
A lot of my regular items will be vintage lace and trims. In addition, I'll concentrate on small antique and/or vintage items - fabrics, collectibles, linens, hankies and other ladies' accessories. I may sell some aprons online, but mostly the aprons and girls' clothing will be for our Farmers Market and Wheeler Farm country store. I'd be interested in hearing how you think (or have experienced) certain things will do on Etsy vs. Ebay vs. Blog. Anyone??
Let the Giveaway begin!
