I am hosting my

Here is all I manged to find this weekend....
We've been busy trying to clean out for a yardsale
and my little sis came all the way from dreary ol' Chicago for a visit...
so time was limited for me the last week.
I really love what I found...
This lovely little hand stitched scene...
It has adorable ribbon trim w/ roses attached to the frame
but I really didn't realise until later
that it really resembles our little house built in 1918...
I just love it to bits.
I paid $8 for it but it was so unique!

  1. what a generous giveaway. I like that you connected the items together especially the postcards. They would be a sweet surprise for a friend to receive. I have a green apron that I use all the time, hardly can cook without it. It really helps to not worry about messing up my clothing when I cook. Plus, the tote bag is so adorable. Got my toes and fingers crossed to win. Thanks.

  2. Wow, what an amazing giveaway. Everything is so fantastic and goes together perfectly. You might need to resell baskets of vintage instead of individually. You really have an eye for detail.
