Our Favorite Things Giveaway

We're kindred spirits aren't we...our fun-loving, alter anything, artsy tribe of bloggers.
Three years ago today, March 28, 2010,
I wrote my very first blog post.
Can't say I loved it from that very first post but it sure grew on me quickly!
It's been a wonderful ride..
sharing my creations...
loving your creations..
swapping art...
boundless inspiration...
and making some of the best friends I've ever known.
I used to think it was weird when I saw bloggers talk about close friendships
back in the early days.
Now I can't imagine my life without each of you in it.
That affinity we share for
vintage things...

flowers, flowers and more flowers...

and yards of yummy trims and laces.
Those are just a few of our favorite things of course.
There are trinkets and fabrics and art supplies galore
(that I simply didn't have the time to photograph!)
But that's what makes this giveaway,
Three Year Blogiversary Favorite Things Giveaway
such fun!
You won't know exactly what you'll win-
only that it will be a wonderful selection of
our favorite things,
wrapped in gratitude and love.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment
and will pick a winner April 5th.
Good luck to all!
