****BLOGOVERSAY CELEBRATION **** ****GIVE-A-WAY ****

CLOSED... 
NOW to sort out how many chances each person has!  
I will post the winner by the end of the week.

My Blogoversary was on THANKSGIVING DAY... I was hoping to start my BLOGOVERSARY celebration with the celebration of the opening of my ETSY shop.  That has been delayed a little and should open in the next week or so.   Watch for my opening announcement!

I couldn't keep my BLOGOVERSARY CELEBRATION on hold any longer.... TO CELEBRATE my blog candy will be one of the ephemera packs I will be selling in my shop.  The pack is 1/2 pound of paper and embellishments, most printed pages in this pack are pre 1950, some early 1900.   

The ephemera will be packaged in a celo bag.

Inside is a variety of paper in each package... 
there could be pages of:
 music, novels, diary, 
pages from books in another language,  

Bingo card, lace, buttons, library pockets

Maps, old envelopes and more.  
This pack has 75 plus pieces.  

It could be yours.... there are three ways to have a chance.
  1. Post a comment
  2. Become a follower
  3. Put a link on your blog or sidebar... Post a comment with the link.
You do not have to do all three for a chance... but if you do you have more chances!!!

Post by Midnight PST December 15th!  The give-a-way is open to my international online friends!  Please tell all your friends!!!

I am excited to share my Ephemera Pack with you... Just remember each ephemera pack will differ... be on the look out for the announcement of my store.  I will have YOUTH Ephemera Packs with pages from books children would have read or been read to from by their parents.  And much more!

Be sure to stop by for my inspiration GIVE-A-WAY here!!!

What a great blog give away! Darlene said, we are suppose to tell you "Hi from her blog". Thanks for the great chance at the array of vintage items! I am just starting to get a collection of a few things from my family that doesn't want to collect vintage things. I don't think they realize the beauty.
