In celebration of over 700 followers on facebook*, it’s time for a giveaway!
So what’s up for grabs? All the accessories you need to be the perfect little quirky-vintage hostess.
There is an adorable vintage apron with cute little front pockets:
Two sweet vintage handkerchiefs and a sparkly stick-pin brooch:
Want to see how sparkly the brooch is? Soooo sparkly!
If things get too warm in the kitchen, every perfect vintage hostess needs a fan:
Not so hot on cooking? I’ll send you either a bag of NZ licorice (soooo yummy!), or if you aren’t a licorice person, a block of Whittakers chocolate (I’ll even give you a choice of flavours).
And, of course you need a tablecloth to put your goodies on. This one is rayon and has Australian Flowers, and is super sweet.
And finally, when you are all tired out from hosting people and looking beautiful, maybe you’d like to curl up with a good book. Or at least one I can just about guarantee you’ve never read: the Belle of St Clemens is a collection of those hilarious early 20th-century girls at boarding school stories. It’s not remotely literature, and totally not-PC by modern standards but it’s fun, and pretty.
The only thing you don’t get is Felicity. She’s staying with me:
Right! So to win all this deliciousness leave a comment telling me:
1) What the theme of the party you would hold to show off these things would be, and;
2) If you would like licorice or chocolate, and if you want chocolate, would you like milk, dark, mac-nut, fruit & nut, kiwifruit, or hokey-pokey.
For extra chances to win, blog, twitter, facebook or pinterest the giveaway, and come back and leave a link under your comment. You’ll get one extra chance per source.
The giveaway closes a week from today – next week Thursday at 12 noon NZ time (so that’s Wed in the rest of the world). I’ll pick the winner via a random number generator. Good luck!
*And when I get to 800 followers on Facebook I’ll do a sewing giveaway, with vintage patterns and fabric and notions
