Yes, New Year's Calls!
New blog look, new year, new friends, new challenges!!!
That means it's giveaway time dear friends....
I put a sweet little pile of hand picked goodies in the giveaway for you. Hopefully, something for everyone. There are cdv's, a tin type, antique buttons, vintage lace, some of that bling I've been talking about, antique keys, some large bullet cases, a vintage doily for sewing enthusiasts, a COPY of a sheet of hand writing my dear friend Jill brought back for me from Italy just recently...
AND, two fun items I made, a sweet brass etched box, with a fleur de lis and French writing, and a brass stamping with a little nest soldered to it, ready to make a necklace.
Sweet vintage glass buttons, glass drop pearls.
A close up of the amazing hand written letter from Italy, it is a copy mind you, but beautiful. Fun for scraping, or putting behind resin.
this is the beginning of a New Year for all of us, a new start for all of us. My heart goes out to those who have struggled at some time in the past year. I hope all your challenges have been met and dealt with, and you landed on top of each one.
I am personally glad this year is behind me. I had to deal with some tough things. Family issues, and the loss of my dear Yorkie, Chester. I was able to get past it all, heal from the hurt and bring a new love into our lives, little Miss Maddie the Havanese. I discovered so many things about myself from the disappointments throughout the year. That is such a benefit, learning from the pain.
All is behind us now. Let's play!
