My First Giveaway

As you know, this whole blogging thing is still new to me and I am trying to learn all the ins and outs of it. I feel like I've been living under a rock for the past couple of years. I had no idea there were so many creative souls out there, and all with such beautiful blogs! One of my favorites is Faded Charm Cottage  Last week I joined up with their White Wednesday Party and right away I started getting comments back from some very kind bloggers. I even had one follow me...thank you Frenchy! I love all of the parties and giveaways that I have seen and thought I would host a little one of my own to hopefully make some new blog buddies.

I am giving away a lovely antique decorated book, and one of my favorite necklace designs. 

The book is very old and coverless. It is tied with twine and adorned with a coffee filter flower, ivory trim, a "celebrate" flashcard style tag, and a very patina'd key

The necklace is one of my favorites...it has a vintage
brooch with pearl tone cabachons and a collar of vintage
 seam binding and rhinestones. There are also more photos of the necklace in my Etsy store

Enter below, and get a second chance to win by following me on Google Friends Connect 
The winner will be announced on
Wednesday January 12th

I will be linking this post to Kathleen's White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage 

Enter Here~

Hi. It's nice to meet you! Welcome to blogland. It is amazing isn't it? I, like you, never knew there were so many talented women. I look forward to following you. I live just outside of Vancouver, WA, so I'm close to your home state of Oregon (I was born in Oregon). Hope you can come visit me. Your giveaway is lovely! I hope it will be coming to my home.
Happy New Year, and have a great week!
