Give Away Time!

Welcome everyone to my 2nd anniversary give away!

I thought that since I’m not going to England to get married I would take the time to have a give away. lol  My second year of blogging is coming up on the 23rd of April. In blogging terms I am still a young pup

compared to many bloggers that have their first five years under their belt. Blogging has lead me to many new friendships that I thought I would never have and I am most grateful for. I want to give a special thank you to all of you who take the time to view my posts, and to all of the great bloggers that give me support and inspiration.

The last few weeks I have put away my paint brushes and taken out my sewing machine to make some soft shabby beauties for my shop.

Pictured above are keepsake pillows.

The back is a soft velvet and the front is lace with a lace pocket to keep those lovely letters or cards that you love.

I have been making these sweet lacy aprons for Mother’s Day. All fabric, lace , and bits and bobs that I use are all vintage.

My big girl Barbie dolls got new Rococo scarves as well.

I just love playing with lovely lacy fabrics.

For my give away it will be a keepsake pillow and all you have to do to enter is to leave me a comment that you would like to be entered and the colors that you would like to have your pillow.  The winner will be announced on the 23 of April, anniversary day. (Please be a follower of my blog by email.)

  8. Congrats on your second year of blogging that I am so grateful that you have started. Your friendly and conversational style of posts, together with your beautiful photos, are such a nice way to begin my mornings before I go off to a day that has nothing much to do with crafting, but reminds me of how much I miss creating. Your story is so inspirational as well, and I admire how you have recreated your life and moved forward successfully. Keep moving forward, creating and picking up steam!
