Goodies for Me, Goodies for You: A Giveaway!

First, a big heart-felt thanks for all the sweet kitty condolences on my previous post. They really have been a comfort to read, and so appreciated :)


Now on to the happy news: It's my turn to host a fun little giveaway! It all began here with the original giveaway hosted by Leah and now, after winning Andrea's, I am third in a growing line of lucky winners set to pay it forward with a giveaway of my own :)


I was thrilled to receive the above parcel from Andrea last weekend. Full of lovely vintage, thrifted, and handmade goodies, it definitely brought with it some much needed cheer, thanks Andrea!

Now it's my turn to assemble an awesome little package of my own for the lucky winner of this giveaway. To enter, just leave a comment on this post by Feb 6th and I will randomly choose a winner in one week :)

By entering, you are taking the following pledge:

i __________, promise in good faith, to pass on some love of my own. i will get a small flat rate box from the post office and fill it with my own goodies and pass it along to someone in my own giveaway/contest/whathaveyou. and i will ask them to pass their love on as well, and so on and so on. i will also come back to this post and let leah know when i am doing this so she can follow along.

Alrighty friends, I promise to thrift up a fabulous little package for whoever wins, so good luck!

I know, aren't the hankies fun? I just don't know what to do with them most of the time. I've heard you can sew them into small pillow cases, but I'd like to wear them somehow. So far I've tied the little square ones around my wrist or my neck (like in the picture). Got any good ideas?

Toosdai said...

Laura said...

This is the best idea! How exciting would it be to find one of those adorable packages in the mail? I love any kind of mail, but mystery packages are the best. Especially mystery vintage ones. :)
