500th Post Giveaway!

Wow, 500 posts! How time flies when you're having fun! To celebrate I am having a giveaway and all you have to do to win is leave a comment. I will pick the winner's name this Sunday evening...


Here's some of the goodies in the prize pack...



This applique is a wonderful way to dress up a headboard or old box...



These tea lights come in the fabulous scent of Summer Rain...



Old black and white mini souvenir photos....



And some of my fav's...



This sweet 'lil hankie is perfect for Valentine's Day!



I found this old plate thrifting and loved the warm, muted colors on it...and the roses - to die for!



I'm including some of the old label packs that I have in my shop, all original and oh-so-FAB! You will LOVE these...



And finally, some inspiration from Country Living's newest issue. These yummy cupcakes POP off of the cover...



So thanks to all of you who stop by my blog, your comments always bring a smile to my face. :)

Good luck everyone!
