A long time ago, in a post far, far away, I believe there was some talk about an upcoming giveaway.
First, let's discuss what I should be, but am not, giving away.
1. Many of the random chairs and other seating devices I've acquired (certainly not 'collected' although there are way more than three of them which does indeed constitute a 'collection' as per The Official Rules & Bylaws Regarding Collections, Chapter 12, Section 5, Paragraph 8) over the years as photo props for the countless pillows manufactured in the Doily Factory to date. Shipping a chair to the winner ultimately removed this as a possible giveaway prize.
2. Fabric scraps by the pound. Also deemed 'un-giveaway-able' as I am not trying to compel readers to leave in droves.
3. The crochet hooks I bought for my thus far ill-fated plan to teach myself to crochet according my Vintage Crafty Resolutions for 2010. In fairness to myself, there are many months left before the end of the year so technically this could still happen. (Stay tuned for The Great Crochet Hook Giveaway of 2011).
Due to the amazing pre-Spring and now the actual Spring weather around these parts, I've developed a mild case of outdoors-itis with symptoms including flower pot planning and tomato plant fever.
And it's flowers and sunshine and Springtime in general that inspired me to create a little table runner especially for this giveaway -- handmade by me from my vintage tablecloth cutter stash.

To enter to win, just leave a comment on this post before midnight PST March 27th. I'll announce the winner on Sunday, March 28th. This is open to anyone, anywhere and there'll be a few extra surprises added too.
And speaking of collections, here's one of mine. Four white vintage pottery vases, urn-shaped and (this is one of my criteria for this collection) each cost $1 or less. Filled with last summer's hydrangeas that I cut and brought inside on Thanksgiving.
Hope you're having a wonderful Spring so far.
