Nifty Thrifty....I'll Soon Be Turning Fifty....A Giveaway
First, my thanks to Linda @ Coastal Charm for hosting her weekly Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party. This fun event is a place where we get to show off some of our thrifty finds each week. It also rhymes with my soon-to-be age so I couldn't resist the opportunity to announce my upcoming giveaway linking to Linda's party....plus the items in the giveaway will all be thrifty items I have purchased and/or repurposed using my thrifty finds.
The giveaway hasn't officially started (you'll see why in the pictures below) but here's my plan: since I am turning 50 I am going to give one winner 50 items from my stash of vintage, thrifty items. I haven't picked out all of the items yet but I'll post this Friday picturing everything soneone will win.
So why am I not organized enough to start the giveaway today?
In preparation of Karen @ My Desert Cottage second annual "Where Blogger's Create Party" on June 19th, I decided last evening to rearrange my studio. Little did I realize what a mess I would create. Here are a few pictures of my "treasures" that are still in need of organizing.
See the picnic basket with the white handles in the bottom of the picture? That is one of the giveaway items and it will be filled with all of the other 49 items.
Here's another picture. Since my vintage clock collection is getting out of control I think one of those will be included too.
There is a lot of vintage lace in one of those containers....you can guess that some of that will be put in the picnic basket too.
So you can see I have a lot of work ahead of me to get my space ready for Karen's party. If you're not aware of the event and want to show off your creative space, link over to Karen's blog here.
And be sure and come back on Friday to see what else will be included in the giveaway and to sign up to win.
And now one last picture of something I found yesterday. A huge bag of rolled thread and string ($1.00). I love how it looks in a simple vase.
I'm Jane and I'm a junker. In my spare time you will find me shopping for treasures at local flea markets, thrift stores and antique malls or repurposing said treasures into new pieces that I use in my home or give as gifts to family and friends. Somehow the shopping part has overtaken the creating part but I typically have on hand what I need when inspiration hits. I enjoy sharing my projects on my blog and appreciate you stopping by for a visit.
