A Celebration~~~My 100th Post!

It's time, sweeties. I am going to show you what I put in the big Giveaway for my 100th post celebration! It has taken me a long time to get to this point on Blogger, but to me it has been worth the trip. I have met so many nice, helpful, and friendly people in my venture and I hope that I will make many more friends in the future.

Because of my love of vintage items, and because I have noticed that vintage is very popular with so many of my fellow bloggers, I have chosen some items from my own personal collection of such items (my stash). I have also included some items that look vintage, but are not.

Now let me show you all the goodies~~

This is one half of what you will receive:

A package of bobby pins~~

A package of barrettes~~(I love the pink and blue)~~

An unused powder puff~~anyone remember these?

Ivory soap!! 99 44/100% pure~~ (This is not old but looks like it is)

A pair of ladies dress gloves~~

The next collection is this: (the other half of the giveaway)~~

Two Little Golden Books and one Wonder Book~~

A rose sachet that smells wonderful! (and looks old)!!

Three painted vintage clothes pins that I added decals to~~

Two pkgs. of Seam Binding, one Bias Tape, and four partial pkgs. of Rick Rack Braid~~

And a pair of beautiful ceramic birds~~

They each have the original labels~~

I forgot to take a picture of the ladies handkerchief in the first picture. It is very soft cotton with a hand crocheted pink edging.
And it seems that I also forgot to take a picture of the pair of candle holders that you see in the second collection picture. They are new and have very pretty pink roses on them.
So there you have it! All these great vintage items can be yours, if you enter the drawing for them. The deadline to get your entries in will be Sept. 27, 2009 at midnight. I will draw the lucky winner's name on Sept. 28, 2009 at 9:00 AM DST.
There are three easy ways that you can get entered into this giveaway.
1. Leave me a comment on this post.
2. If you want another entry, become a follower. I would love to get to know you!
All of my followers will automatically be entered.
3. You can get still another entry by posting about my Giveaway on your blog. You must put a link back to my blog and then leave me another comment telling me that you did.
So, you can get three entries by doing all three of the above.
Also, you don't have to have a blog to win--just leave me a comment with an email address or some way to get in touch with you if you win!
Thanks so much for your visits and leaving your comments. It means so much to me!
So, spread the word and get your entries in. Good luck to all of you!

'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Hello Jean~ I'm finally back from my blogcation.
Congratulations on your 100Th post!!
The burnt rooster picture was so beautiful. I know how tricky wood burning can be. It's takes some skill to master the art. I love the feathered detail in yours.

I can't imagine hiking in 90 degrees...topped off with the humidity!! I'm afraid if I attempted such a feat I'd end up like the wicked witch of the west...a big melted pile on the dirt trail, LOL!
I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the company.
Sweet wishes,

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

P.S. I've been slowly recreating a new blog roll...I hope you don't mind me sharing your link.

Sweet wishes,

Jean... What a wonderful giveaway for all of us who love vintage items!!! I love the ivory soap, barrettes, etc. I have been collecting tins, boxes, etc. for my bathroom! Things have been really busy for me here lately, so the posting has been slow. I am trying to get ready for my MOM and DAD's 50th anniversary celebration this weekend and both of my children are getting married next summer. I am trying to make the invites and other things.
