Giveaway Winners & Sneak Peek

August 23, 2009

Thanks to all participants in the Material Girl giveaway!  Your pie suggestions had me drooling for days. 

Congrats to these randomly chosen three winners:

Congrats to these winners – please email me your full name, address, and phone number and I’ll put you in touch with the shop owners at Material Girl Fabric


Now for the sneak peek.  I mentioned earlier this week that I would be opening for a limited time a ‘Home for the Holidays’ Etsy shop.  A couple of readers have requested a teaser look at some of the goods.  I must tell you I’m seriously considering renaming the shop: Things I Want To Keep

For the past several months, I’ve been poking around flea markets, antique fairs, and salvage yards in search of unique treasures.  I’d like to give you a glimpse of what will be available come October.  My goal is to make every selection available at very reasonable prices, and for under $50 dollars. 

Pair of large antique Ball Mason Jars with lids (10 inches tall)

Oh, and there’s much much more!  I’m having a lot of fun shopping for special things for you.  If anyone is looking for something truly unique, be sure to let me know, and I’ll be on the lookout for you.

    The Ball Mason jars are just stunning aren't they?
    I managed to get about 1/2 dozen of them and have one filled to the brim with rootings of snips from my houseplants.
    A small one sits looking great and the third on my kitchen windowsill has a votive sitting inside the upside down glass inner lid.
    THESE ARE SUPER, and very, very prettty.
    What great taste you have my dear!!! lol :}
