Blogtoberfest giveaway time

Hello Festie Festerers,

As giving away stuff is good, I’m joining in the fun. What’s up for grabs? This little pile o’stuff, mostly 70’s vintage-y:

  • little 1970’s mousie notepaper set (this was thrifted, so it doesn’t have the original amount of notepaper and envelopes in it) …still extremely cute
  • for kitteh lovers, a vintage set of Avon soaps shaped like kittys in stockings “Furry Purry and Scurry”…you know you want this!
  • a Ladybird book for reading or arty-crafty-farting with
  • a thrifted decorative plate that also has extreme cuteness value and says “Consider Yourself Loved” (stamped 1978)
  • a pack of Japanese Pinky chewing gum (which is thankfully not vintage)
    and crafted by yours truly at Brown Owls:
  • a white men’s sized hand-stiched owl design handkerchief

Leave me a comment if you’d like this little pile o’ booty (and if no-one enters I’m quite happy to keep it all ehehheeeh <–evil laugh) up to October 29th. Then I’ll random number a winner.
‘kay?
