Let's Celebrate With A 60th Post Giveaway!!!

I had big plans to celebrate my 50th post with a giveaway - which I missed...
Then I thought a 50 something giveaway would do and you guessed it... I missed those too...
Here I am at my 60th post and there was no way I was gonna miss celebrating this one.
So Let's Celebrate!!
*********
I wasn't sure what to do or make for a giveaway. Since I couldn't decide, I made 3 different things.
The first is a hanging sachet filled with lots of fragrant french lavender.
I made 3 posies out of vintage hankies held together with old glass buttons. Next, I made a banner garland out of vintage tablecloth remnants. There are 7 pennants, the whole garland measures 68" long with a 20" tie on each end.
I took this picture so you could see how it hangs across a mantel.
Last but not least I made a tote bag, perfect for all the treasures you'll find at the flea market. The front panel is made from 4 different vintage tablecloth pieces.
Hard to see in the picture but an old rhinestone button is sewn in the center. The bag is fully lined and has an inside pocket too. Oh, the tote measures 12 1/4" wide by 14" deep.
OK, so for one lucky winner, all you gotta do is leave one comment on this post and if your name is drawn, I'll send you these 3 items. Please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you too. All comments left on this post by noon (Pacific Standard Time) Sunday, April 6th will be eligible and put into the drawing. Thanks for celebrating my 60th with me!
Woohoo I love blogging!!!
