I finally got around to putting together my give-away to celebrate passing 400 followers.
That's an astonishing feat to accomplish for me.
It may not be much to those who have thousands of followers
but it is huge to me.
I can't believe this is my 3rd give-away. They certainly are fun to do!
So, to celebrate, I'm giving away a few things.
I'm giving away 2 giant rusted industrial looking metal paperclips.
These are about 12 inches (a foot) long. They can hang on a wall
and hold pictures, notes and momentos. They can be a cool paperweight
or just lay around as conversation pieces.
I'm also giving away 3 old milk bottles.
We all know the many uses of old bottles and jars.
I am giving away 3 for sure but I may put in a couple of more.
I recently found a bunch of these at a barn sale on my way to Round Top/Warrenton
a couple of weeks ago so I'm sharing with you.
So, 3 vintage milk bottles (maybe more)
and 2 industrial rusty paperclips.
I may even throw in a couple of little surprises too.
(Sorry, the little stool and twine aren't included. I picked those up at Hobby Lobby recently.)
- Make sure you are a follower and leave a comment saying so. After all, this give-away is to celebrate my followers so you kind of have to be one to win :)
- Leave a second comment letting me know if you put my give-away button on your blog or post about my giveaway.
- I don't twitter or tweet or facebook or whatever but if you are in to that and want to do whatever you do with those things, feel free and then leave a third comment saying you did so.
- Leave a fourth comment telling me what awesome thing you would do with these paperclips because I have a couple myself and I know there are some creative things to do with them that I haven't thought of yet.
- Lastly, just because I'm curious, leave a fifth comment telling my why you decided to follow my blog. What do you like about it?
So, that's 5 ways to enter but you have to leave a separate comment for each entry. Good luck!
Deadline to enter is Sunday, April 17 at midnight. I'll announce a winner the following week.

I don't have a blog (but LOVE to read and copy ideas), twitter or tweet, or facebook----but I would love to own those paper clips. I would use them in my craft room--for decor with maybe a photo or print in it and one for a paper weight to hold down paper.ReplyDelete
I am new to finding your blog--I wish I had found it sooner--I have a lot to read and look at. But I LOVE what I have seen!! I love any thing old, rusty, forgotten, repurposed, and full of memories. I think from what I have seen, your glog and I will be very happy! Thank you for sharing your ideas and decor with us...ReplyDelete

I might attach the paperclip to a plaque of wood and use it as a recipe holder in my kitchen. Love them and the milk bottles!!ReplyDelete
I love milk bottles , and I'm sure I can figure out something to do with those paper clips .ReplyDelete
Congratulations on 400 followers! I'm one of them.ReplyDelete
I love how you styled your photos! I added a picture and link to the giveaway in my sidebar.ReplyDelete
I would use one of the paperclips as a paperweight on our desk in the family room. Whenever we leave the patio doors open on a breezy day, papers take flight and our chocolate lab figures they are fair game if they land on the floor! The other would be on a stack of decor books on a pine cabinet in our livingroom. I would obviously love to win the giveaway, and would love love to win the milk bottles. We are farm and dairy crazy around here so they would be much loved. Thanks for the chance.ReplyDelete

I'm not sure what I would do with the giant paper clips, but they are uber cool. One thing that sprung to mind was to hang them sideways and slide necklaces on to them. Not sure if it would work in reality though.ReplyDelete
What do I love about your blog... let me count the ways. We have a lot in common, being SLPs and all, you live in an interesting neck of the woods, you are passionate about loving your rusty bits and bobs, you make interesting vignettes with your bits and bobs, and you have such fantastic pieces around the house often with wonderful stories to go with them.ReplyDelete
Please enter me in your beautiful giveaway. Congrats on achieving 400 (and MORE) followers! I'm a new one.ReplyDelete
I posted about your giveaway: http://prairiepatch.blogspot.com/2011/04/400-followers-giveaway.htmlReplyDelete

I think I would like to try using the paperclips to hang a vintage quilt on the wall. Not sure if it would work but I would love to try.ReplyDelete
