Giveaways Go Mad

This week I discovered a new-to-me shop in Islington and fell deeply in love. So much so, that I just HAD to buy a couple of items to use as a giveaway here. (And scroll down to the end of this post for links to not one but two Pattern Pyramid giveaways.)

In With The Old profiles independent makers and also holds crafty workshops – quite how and where, I don’t know, as every spare surface is crammed with those things you just want to snuffle up immediately. Vintage plates, lace baskets, old medicine bottles, silk handbags – too, too gorgeous.

So what am I offering as giveaways?

A greeting card with a neon pink origami dress and a length of vintage lace! All you have to do is leave a comment by GMT Friday 14 September. I’m happy to post anywhere in the world. Good luck, my friends!

Oh. And I just had to buy something for myself too. Because I’m worth it.

STOP PRESS! GMarieSews has a Pattern Pyramid giveaway, including a Burda magazine, here and Roobeedoo has launched her Scottish Pattern Pyramid giveaway here, that includes a bonus mystery pattern.

I love, love, love it, I wouldn’t be greeting anyone with it though, it’ll be going in a picture frame to help decorate my pink guest room. Thanks Karen, you are so kind & generous. 🙂
