A giveaway!

So . . . I've been thinking -
 What is the one thing 
to make everyone smile 
and be happy? 

A giveaway! 
Everyone loves to win giveaways! 
We all get excited when we see 
our adorable little mailman
coming up the walk with a package!

Let's have one!

I made this soldered hanging charm.
it measures 2" by 3"
and has our Sorority picture in it.
Next - pretty things.
Laces, ribbons and trims 
Old ones, new ones . . .
Machine made - handmade
Wide ones, narrow ones . . .
everyone uses these!
And everyone needs some pretty 
vintage buttons! 
And an old antique key . . .
Don't you find yourself wondering ... 
who carried this key?
What door it unlocked?

Well there you have it!
I will draw a name on the morning
of Wednesday - June 9th, PST.

How do you enter?
Just by being a Bloggerette Sorority sister! 
How easy is that?

If you would like to join the Bloggerette Sorority just click on button on my side bar and it will take you to the post where you can sign up! Everyone is welcome!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

PS - FUR MOM!!! I need your blog name or an Email.

Hey Karen,
I just turned on my computer and your post was the first one I saw!
Well yipee girlfriend, this is a lovely give-away!! That little sign/hanging you made for the sorority sisters is just charming! Love that!
All all the other goodies as well!
Yesterday, Dan and I went to a graduation party and then to the twin cities. Found a great crib for my daughter from Craigs List and it was only $50. Today were just hanging out, it's beautiful, about mid-seventies with a light breeze.
Take Care
(oh and I am checking out options for coming in August)
