50 Followers :: Owl Coaster Giveaway!


Oh my goodness, how surprised was I this morning to see that I had reached 50 followers! I have had something special set aside for a giveaway post & I do believe that this is the perfect time.

First off, thank you all so very much for coming around to see all of the stuff I haul home on my thrifting & estate sale adventures. What a treat to know that someone is paying attention to my rambling & appreciating these things I find that I do so adore. I don't have any friends IRL who dig on vintage as much as I do & to tell you the truth I think most of 'em secretly believe I'm nuts for making a living this way.  I could bet, however, that I am enjoying myself LOADS more than I would be if I were still a Fat-Girl-Panty-Pimper (my former occupation), even though I really did enjoy that too ... well, some of it!

Anyway, there are two adorable little owl trivets which have been lovingly refurbished by myself into bright, fun coasters. One is teal & the other is Hubba Bubba (psst, your age is showing, Poppy Lynn) pink. I use mine (& I do have many) to set plants on when I bring them indoors, to hold my cups-a Joe & spots o' tea while I'm reading & they look just darling hanging on the wall in pretty much any room.

So I've never done a giveaway before, but I've participated in a few ...

    1. It is amazing how much stuff you can fit into a house. My "Etsy" room (which used to be my sewing room) is packed to the gills, it gives my mother hives to look at it, but I have years of practice in organized chaos.

  8. Hey! I just found you on Pinterest (where I wish they had a message option.) Don't you love it when you come across someone and think, "If we met in real life, I bet we'd be best friends?" Anyway, that thought crossed my mind while checking out your pins and boards. Cute shop too!

    1. Indeed, what's the harm in a bit of clutter amongst friends? Now step over that pile of vintage kids books, don't step on that dinosaur figurine, push the stack of granny-square afghans aside & have a seat!
