GIVE AWAY!

As you know I'm still new at this "blog" thing. My sweet friend Dawn suggested that I have a "give-away" to help get my name out there for a lot more people to see. So I am doing just that! And guess what? My birthday is coming up, but someone else is going to get the present!

I will be giving away a goodie box filled with surprises, including these vintage "Whiting & Davis" cameo earrings on their original card. To register for this drawing, please click on comments below, and leave me one. And if you do a post about my give away on your blog, you will be entered twice! Iwill be drawing a winning name on my birthday, May 30th .




This is a picture of the earrings I will be giving away, but the other items will be a SURPRISE! And if you love vintage items like I do, you will not be disappointed.

Please don't forget to leave me a comment and contact information if you are not a blogger. And let me know if you posted about me on your blog.


I just love surprises, don't you?

Faith

Love the vintage earrings. Glad you have entered the blogging world. I'm waiting until this fall before I jump in -- just not enough time during the summer to give it a try. Good luck with your give-away.
