let's try a happy little givaway...

okay, i realize that
20 blog posts might not
be that big of a deal to
you, but in my world...
it's way HUGE!
you may not know it,
but i am a non computer
kind of gal. i would
much rather play in my
art room, which brings
me to the giveaway!
this "man's shaving
kit dealie" was picked up
at a local yard sale, and
given new life as a happy
sewing kit. contents include:
a handful of white buttons,
four spools of thread, needles,
and safety pins.
please leave a comment,
and on sunday, i'll
announce the winner.
thank you for visiting
my little blog!

happy day!

  17. Hi Lynn!

    I am in the Matchbox Advent Caledar Swap with you at Silver Bella and can't wait to see what you come up with! I've checked out your blog a couple of times (I'm another blog newbee - haven't reached my 20th post yet...) and came over from your big sis's blog today! (isn't Jodie a hoot!!) Congrats on a great blog.


  18. Hi Lynn. so noce to meet you and your blog looks great! I was just over at Jodie's blog and made my way directly to yours.

  19. Hi Lynn, Nice to meet you - will be seeing you at Silver Bella -so glad you are coming. I have been to all the Silver Bellas, but I am also a blog-newbie- trying to learn all the computer stuff - like you I would rather just be playing with paper, instead of the computer.

  20. Hi Lynn! I came over to your place via Jodie's blog - it's so nice to visit your cute blog! And, only 20 posts and a giveaway - so generous! I love the cute kit! Pick me! Pick me!

  21. Hey Lynn. Congratulations on the 20th post. I can't even get my 1st started. I went to Gypsy Mermaids blog, which led me to Jodie's Everything Vintage and she directed me to you, and I'm so glad she die. You have a great blog and I would have never thought to do that with the shave kit, it's so cute! Sorry to keep going but looking at everyones blog has me on an adrineline high. Ha-Ha

  22. What a wonderful find...It would make such a sweet sewing kit. I am enjoying your posts...keep it up!

  23. Miss Lynn, Congratulations on your 20th post! Look how popular you are! Please enter me in your give-away. Love that little sewing kit. I can't wait to come back home & go to yard sales myself. :)
    Love, Erin

  24. psssst........Jodie sent me......I love your happy paper art!!!!

  25. Congrats on 20 posts! Blogging can be a big time-eater, so that is a great accomplishment (at least it is in MY world too!).
    That wee sewing kit is fantastic! I love thrift shops and vintage goodies. Seeing the potential in previously loved items is so much fun!

  26. Lynn, this sewing kit is pretty darn clever! How do you think this stuff up?

  27. Wow! You did get a lot of response to your giveaway -- Jodie certainly is a lovely soul sister! Pure creative genious what you did with this old sewing kit! How do you come up with these wonderful ideas?
