Thursday Yard Sales, Etsy Shop & Giveaway Tease!!

My BFF Beth and I are each launching an Etsy shop soon!!  We will be having a tandem Grand Opening on July 8 and we will be posting pictures in our blogs soon of the items that will be going in our shops. 

To make the opening extra special we are each hosting a Vintage Sewing Giveaway!!  Mine will be pink and yellow themed and Beth’s will be green and aqua themed.  On July 1 we will each post pictures of our giveaways and start taking comments to register for the giveaway on July 8, to coincide with the opening of our shops.  We are both very excited!

Here is a sneak peek at my giveaway.


Today is also yard sale Thursday!  I love it when I have the day off and there is a fabulous yard sale too!


My finds today are a vintage fire king measuring cup, 2 green flower pots and the cutest cast iron fox terrier!  Love the fox terrier, almost as cute as my little one, Wendy.

My Tiara Swap partner, Heather should be receiving her tiara/crown today.  I used a seashell/mermaid theme for my crown.  It was very hard to part with!



I hope that everyone will come back here and to Beth’s blog on July 1 to register for the giveaways.  The sign up period will be July 1 to July 7, winners to be announced on July 8.

  1. Just found your blog through the Crown/Tiara swap. Your blog and your crown are both lovely!
    I am thinking about hosting a Art Doll Hat swap. If you might be interested, leave a comment at my blog.


  2. Woo Hoo! Congratulations on the new Etsy shop!
