A GIVEAWAY gift and more antique finds


Hi bloggers!  I finally finished the little pillow that'll be included in my giveaway.  I think it turned out pretty cute, so I hope you'll think so too!  The back is all burlap, so it matches the trimming on the front.
What have you been up to this weekend?  


Time to get ready for another week, but I wanted to share with you a few photos of some fun, antique finds! 



I thought these little salt and pepper shakers were a fun way to use glitter.
 The little crocheted doily I couldn't resist either, but my friend, Linda is going to show me how to make them right Linda? 

Finally, I was cleaning up my craft room and set these salt and pepper shakers up on this "neon cactus in a terra cotta pot" that I have,  just to get them out of the way so I could dust, and I was taken back by how they looked with the green light, so...of course I grabbed my camera and came up with this! 
Pretty cool huh? 



Well, have a nice week, and don't forget to leave me a comment if you want to be entered into my 1st Annual Blogiversary GIVEAWAY. 
Deadline is April 30th at midnight and I will draw a random name from all that have entered and post the winner on Saturday, May 1st.

Thank you to all that have followed my blog and left me comments.  I look forward to reading each and every one! 

For now...
Becca

Oh dear, Becca! I'm afraid you have just nudged me to go shopping for antique and vintage salt and pepper shakers! Sometimes the tops look so bad that I'd rather not buy them to actually use for s&p but for glitter...! Perfect!
Thank you for the inspiration!

Glitter is a lovely thing, and even prettier in antique shakers.

Congrats on your 100th!
