Finished Re-dos and Last Month's Prize Reveal
Yesterday I promised you a pic of my finished dresser re-do with the mirror attached. We didn't attach the mirror until we had it in the shop (obvious transport reasons) but before we moved it, I decided it needed a matching chest. I DO love that color! Wanna see what last month's giftaway included? Margo has received her package so now I can do a reveal! :-) You already knew she'd be getting this bottle: She also received some wooden vintage thread spools and some little disposable mixing bowls for smaller painting jobs (of course, she might think of an entirely different use), along with some bits of lace, a swingy clock thing (heck, I don't know what they're called but I know she loves clock parts) and something that looks like a fishing sein with wooden beads. She also received a vintage tobacco can with some tags I put together for her, some pretty flowery wallpaper that could be used for notes, to cover a little box, etc., wrapped up in embroidered lace and pink painted clothespins, wooden letters that spell her name, a mess of green fringe, a metal rose that I know she'll put to beautiful use somehow, and bits of other wallpaper that she may end up using for decoupage (you never know with this girl!). Oh! And some alcohol swabs in case she cuts herself while out dumpster-diving. (Once a Mom, always a Mom, and I think she's close to my daughter's age...) If YOU had been the winner, you would have received the bottle, the hangtags and probably the tobacco tin, along with a variety of other items. I try to throw in things that suit the personality of the winner. (I do this by reading your blogs, the comments you leave me, etc.) I leave you with some eye candy from my yard in the form one of our peach trees and some vintage concrete ducks. Thanks for stopping by and remember: Leave a comment on my blog and you will be automatically entered in my giftaway for the month!
