400th Post/Holiday Giveaway

Hi all! Once again, I’ve been a bit absent from my blog. No special reason. Just living life. I wish I had some lovely pictures to share of my beautifully decorated holiday home, but I don’t. The tree is up. No ornaments or lights on it, but I am hoping to tackle that today.

I was surprised to see that my last post was #399. I don’t know why that surprised me as I have been blogging for 5 1/2 years now. That surprises me too. It has gone really, really fast! I have to be honest. There are days when I have thought of stopping blogging as sometimes, I just don’t feel like I have much to say. Really, I’m doing the same stuff I did 5 1/2 years ago. Collecting and selling vintage goods, hanging out with my family, etc. But then I think about all the wonderful people I’ve met through blogging and how much I would miss being able to share my latest finds or crafty goody I’ve made. To thank you for joining me here, I decided that it was time to do a giveaway. It’s been awhile and I think it’s the perfect time for giving.

002

The lucky winner of my giveaway will win either a rhinestone charm bracelet or

005

a vintage bling belt buckle.

*Important note: the above pictures are just examples of what will be given away. I will be making either a custom bracelet or belt buckle for the lucky winner.

So, if you would like to enter, please just leave a comment. That’s all. You don’t have to post it on your blog, or facebook or tell all your friends. How easy is that? I will draw a name on Monday morning and post it right here. So, until then, have a fabulous weekend! XO

Hi! Stumbled across your blog while stumbling thru someone else's blog. (lol) Congratulations on your 400th post! Glad to see I'm not the only one who's just getting started on my holiday decorating. Had to scout out a new tree this year and decided to change up my color scheme. Doing silver, white and green with maybe a little turquoise thrown in. Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

And, MY, what beautiful button bracelets and belt buckles you have, my dear! I'm a bracelet girl myself, and would love to wear one of your lovely creations. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and thank you for the opportunity.

Lisa - all I can say is...don't stop!!! You are my inspiration in so many ways you have no idea. I'm 46 and stuck in corporate America, and dream of a retirement of "A Thing for Roses - II" - or some such similar thing. I've shown your blog to so many people and said - THAT'S what I want to do, when I don't have to do THIS anymore!!!! :-) So, keep it up!! We love what you do!

Julie Ann said...
