a blog-versary giveaway

*****COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED - thank you for entering, I'll post the winner's name friday morning*****

jan. 2nd marked the start of my third year blogging. I kind of can't believe I've stuck with it & I really can't believe so many nice people come here to visit!

so, in honor of this occasion I'd like to giveaway this camera bag:


well, it's not technically a camera bag so much as a tote bag with my photo of a camera transferred onto it...you can put anything you'd like inside :)

to enter just leave a comment here before this thurs. {the 28th} at 6pm CST - then I'll announce the winner on friday.

p.s. if you really want a tote but don't win, or if you'd like a different doe-c-doe photo on a tote I've added a listing for custom totes in the shop!

I always wanted one of these cameras as a kid. Nice tote baby!

PinkSmoot said...

I have been a lurker for a few months. I am also a die-hard thrift store shopper. Because of your blog the way I look at merchandise has changed! Shopping is more fun.

Jeanne said...

wonderful tote! (and wonderful blog..been reading for a while now). Thanks for the chance!

mixette said...

That is so nice of you! Very glad you have stuck with the blog; it's one of my most favorites. When my friends and I are out thrifting, we'll often say, "oh, that's so doe-c-doe!"

june at noon said...

Love this. It's so much cooler than my current tote. Yes, please! :)

I'm glad you've stuck around. You're always inspiring.

Stephanie said...

So cute! Would be a great gift for my photographer friend!

Oh, I just love it!! (It's my bloggy anniversary, too -- YIPPEE!)

I love your photos of thrifted items. There are a couple I've had my eye on for months now. I'll have to drop a hint to my husband for my birthday this year....

You have got THE RADAR for finding the good stuff!

I have had your blog bookmarked for quite a long time, yours is a "go-to" for me at least three or four times a week! Because of your generosity in sharing patterns, I have embroidered quite a few tea towels, and for that I say "Thank You" for three years of blogging! You are truly an inspiration!

Love the bag!

I was in Target the other day and noticed they now have a lot of the old Fisher-Price toys from when I was a kid...remember the phone? And there was that wind up TV screen thingy...if they had had the camera I would have bought it, even though it's new and not really vintage.

Love your blog (and your photos!!)...your sheep print and camper print are hanging in my bathroom!
Thanks - Carol
