giveaway time!!

it's Giveaway Time over here at BacWoods Fern

i wanted to thank you all for following/reading my blog

so as a thank you i'm giving away a few items that i hope you'll love as much as i do

if you love crafting then this book is for you

the McCall's book of handcrafts
copyright 1954-1972
foil tooling
paper crafts
are just a handful of crafts you can learn to do using this book

this book is awesome and whoever wins will be a lucky girl... it's a little tough getting rid of this beauty!

next up is a cute little sewing book 

sewing pants for women
copyright 1963

it's a fun little sewing book even if you don't sew... the illustrations are just so darn cute!

i'm also giving away 
three little embroidery hoops

two vintage inspired coca cola trays
i collect coca cola trays and these were two that i first bought... they are not originals and i'm trying to weed out the reproductions - they are still lovely though and very fun!

so there you have it
all of this can be yours!

to enter

say something nice
about anything, anyone
and let me know that you are a follower of this blog

*only one comment per person please*

*oops! a lovely reader of mine informed me of my mistake about when the contest ends.... since yesterday was the 3rd of march that's obviously not what i meant to write! 
the contest will be closed tuesday the 9th of march at 6pm!*

thanks for letting me know of my mistake erica - i so appreciate it!!

i will announce the winner later that evening... good luck!

we're having some wonderful sunshiny weather today here in missouri, and my nice thing about that is i got to see people playing in the park, and I think i saw a butterfly.

sweet little giveaway! i love vintage craft books. and my momma has a Coke room those trays would love splendid in. Yes she is kind of a dork with a vintage coke soda shop fascination but i love her!

Erica said...

I'm a follower already...but I am a tad confused by the "contest closes Tuesday March 3rd at 6pm" ... I know I am not American, maybe that's my problem, but up here in Canada, it's Thursday March 4... :) hehehe I think it's funny! :)

lydia. said...

such cute things! loving this.
my nice thing is about my little, sweet fiancee.
wherever we go he always tells me not to bring in my entire purse, because it gets so heavy.
but i always forget and bring it in anyways!
and he always carries it for me. :)
he did that all this evening.
the sweetest ever.

thanks for hosting a giveaway!

What a fun giveaway, and I'm loving that macrame ring! I was your 48th follower, so I'm safe there.

My nice thing to say... I have a client that could easily be my best friend. I stayed at her office girl talking for an hour today, and next time I see her, I'm going to be sure to tell her how much I like our friendship!
