A Sneak Peek

Is it really almost Friday?  Where did the week go? 

On my Nifty Thrifty Tuesday post I announced an upcoming giveaway I was going to have to celebrate my 50th birthday.  I'm still having the giveaway.....50 items for my 50 years.....but bear with me for a couple of more days as I organize and photograph all of the items.  I have had a lot of fun uncovering all sorts of wonderful, vintage items to include in the giveaway but I also underestimated the time it would take to get the giveaway organized.  I promise, it will be worth the wait!

Now I want to give you a sneak peek of a few of the items I selected.  I hope you like them!

An altered bottle I created, a pin-cushion I made using a silver sugar bowl and a snowman I created using a vintage silver salt shaker.  The red book is included too.
A Baby Ben alarm clock, silver dish and a small heart that I created from a vintage quilt.
Addition flashcards from 1959 and a glass flower frog.
A beautiful ironstone platter.
Look at the gorgeous bird and bird nest design on the platter (I'm having a hard time giving this one away).
And pink Shiny Brite ornaments (4)
They look great on the ironstone platter.
OK, there's your sneak peek!!  I'll be back with all of the other goodies and the official "rules" in a couple of days.
I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing, Memorial Day.

Jane

  5. Now I'm gonna cry. My dad had that very same Baby Ben alarm clock on his bedside table for as long as I can remember. Now,I wonder what ever happened to it? He's been gone for 5 years now and it's been hard, really hard without him.

  18. Jane, when my girlfriend turned 50 I bought her 50 gifts...It took a few months to put it all together, but it was so much fun to watch her open them - and many had a significance to them!!

  19. Oh my gosh Jane! You're going to have the best giveaway ever in the history of blog giveaways. I can't imagine what the shipping is going to cost you. That platter is beautiful...I don't know how you're parting with all of these wonderful items. But then you have such great luck finding stuff I'm sure new treasures will take their place. :-) Have a great holiday weekend!

  31. That really is a marvelous giveaway!

    And take your time getting organized, I remember how long it took me to pull all the stuff together for my flea market giveaway a couple of months back. It was like a full-time job all by itself! :-)

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  32. I really like your new "banner" above. It's lovely and it truly showcases what you collect, do, and cherish. The family picture I'm sure will be missed.

    Also, your photographs are stunning. I always comment on your vintage goodies, but I absolutely love the macro shot of the pink ornaments. As always, you do beautiful work! Victoria
