Sunday Catch Up and a Giveaway

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Rain was expected today but before it started I was able to hit 2 bootsales.

I found a bag of postcards but they wanted £1 each so I choose my 3 favourites.





And wonderfully written on the backs.



I knew I'd love these books just by their covers,



and wasn't disappointed when I looked inside, such cute images.



And another old looking box which contained some great cards for crafting



I was hunting for vintage ric rac on eBay the other day and managed to find some so jumped in quickly with a bid and was lucky enough to "win".



My mum also treated me to some jars on a visit to a local antique haunt,



and ribbons she thought I could use for presents and crafts - thanks mum!



Nene at Love Conquers All had a great giveaway over at her blog... there was not just a gift for one but a gift we could ALL use.
It was this GORGEOUS picture of Audrey Hepburn to use as we wished!




What fun... I love Audrey Hepburn... my room is covered in her images so I knew I could do something with this!
Then I remembered that I still had to offer a giveaway following one I won over at Creative Art & Craft.


Alison sent me this and I just needed to offer an ATC or similar to my readers.
I have on offer these 9 Audrey Hepburn tags,



So yes, that's 9 winners. Here's some close ups,




I will draw the 9 people from the hat next Saturday 3rd May, just leave me a comment on this post between now and then!
Right I have some blogs to catch up on, enjoy the rest of your day.

OOOh, I love those tags. I have Audrey Hepburn in my office...in one area because it does not match but I do not care. I have a large poster surrounded by Tiffany boxes of course!

Jeanne said...

You really got some wonderful goodies. Joan Walsh Anglund is one of my favorite illustrators. I so adore her sweet images. And the Audrey Hepburn tags are fabulous!

Hi Victoria, some great finds at the boot sales, especially the postcards. Isn't it annoying though when things cost more than pennies, must have been hard having to choose just three! Your tags are great too.
