Totally Awesome Holiday Giveaway!

Now what do I want for Xmas?  A good job with good pay where they appreciate me and my work, to win a good chunk of money to repair the patio and dig around the foundation to waterproof it, more LLBean  flannel sheets, some Gap Heaven scent and  more than 100 followers!

And here's where you can help make my dreams come true good people of bloggyland (how's that for an intro?). So to all the people of bloggyland a holiday giveaway is upon you!

Here's what you can take home with you:


Here are some helpful things to help you get through the holidays! An amazing Heloise Kitchen Hints book published in 1963. You will learn how to make a wash and wear apron, a new way to make turkey stuffing and so much more! A small green restaurant ware tea pot, perfect for that afternoon pick me up, an Edlund  vintage turquoise can opener and last but not least a 443 Butterprint Pyrex Cinderella bowl.
P.SSSSSSS: I will add other seasonnal goodies to this giveaway!

Now here's what you have to do!

1) Become a follower                                       
2) Leave a comment ON THIS POST ONLY  
3) If you have a blog write about my giveaway   

Now just becoming or being a follower is NOT enough, you must at least also comment to be elligible.

I will ship all over the world, so everyone can join! How cool is that?

I will post the items I'm adding to the giveaway as I pick them. Even the people who already won can join the fun :)

Have a great evening!

I'm a follower and fellow Pyrex-o-maniac! That bowl is my very favorite pattern and color. I'm an old-fashioned grandma who loves to cook more than anything.

This is such a good idea! I might copy, if you don't mind, but the more Pyrex giveaways, the better, right? : )

I love how old is the "new" new for the holiday season! Get back to the simple pleasures in this world and appreciate what we have! I am trying to give vintage this year in what I find and what I make...I am glad others are too!

P. said...

I thought I was already a follower, but I guess not--so I just fixed that! What a generous giveaway! That's the bowl my sister bought for me (actually it was the set of bowls), then decided to keep for herself.

I am now a follower(quite a lovely blog! I look forward to reading your posts :3 )

And honestly, I don't have any Pyrex bowls, which I'm under the impression is a horrible, horrible fate.

I've used my Mum's though and thing they are fabulous. The pattern of this one is very beautiful and classic feeling.

Thanks for the chance to enter - the prizes you've collected are definitely beautiful (and they look great together), and I love the thought and the stories behind them. My best friend just bought her first house and has been raiding the local antique stores and thrift stores for vintage Pyrex, so I'm really entering in the hope that I can give her an extra special gift this year. Thanks again!
