A New Look - Template Redesign, and a Giveaway to Celebrate

Thanks to Catherine of Avalon Rose, I now have a new blog template and webstore design to match! I wanted to jazz things up a bit and start afresh. I'm having a giveaway to celebrate (see below). I'm now ready to get some new items listed in time for the holidays.

First I want to share with you a great thrift store find - these lovely creamy white lined drapes - 2 pair - 4 floor-length panels complete with tiebacks - brand new! These are perfect for my bedroom.



And now for the celebratory giveaway - a vintage crochet doily, sweet silver Christmas cardinal, Christmas hang tag, handmade by me, and a pewter snowman spreader for those holiday cheeseballs you'll be making! Just comment on this, or any post until one week from today, Wednesday, 11/18. At 6:00 p.m. on that date, a name will be randomly selected. I'll get these mailed out so that the winner will receive them by Thanksgiving.
