Tuesday, December 22


Greetings, dear friends. As promised, here are pictures of the "loot" to be given away for the "Vintage Giveaway" to one lucky commentor on my last blog post. Remember to be considered for the drawing you must find some way to convince Hubby Dear that the aqua and red hoosier cabinet belongs in MY kitchen! It has a $550 price tag, but the antique mall where it resides has layaway!  My birthday is nearly upon us (Dec. 28) so I'm thinking someone needs to get down to business, yes? And with layaway? There's NO excuse...?!?! Yet he  has plenty of them, believe me. Meanwhile, here's the coveted cabinet of which I speak:

Oh, I KNOW there are more attractive cabinets...and I know there are those that are in better shape AND less expensive, however THIS ONE is aqua and red AND has a clock and plug ins at the top. Two very unique features. And after doing some online research, the price is right in the ballpark with other cabinets in similar condition. SOooooooooooooo, convince him, would ya?
On to the goodies:


Here's the list of goods that will be included in your vintage giveaway:
2 fat quarters of batik fabric
A handful of Rummicube pieces
2 vintage dominoes
3 vintage wooden musicians
1 game spinner
1 pkg. Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons
1 My Littlest Pet Shop bobble head frog
2 vintage packs of ric rac
1 vintage heart made from a piece of vintage quilt
1 box vintage stationary (with cute animals on half the pages)
1 red and aqua vintage handkerchielf
1 pkg Vintage Felt Ornaments: Make Your Own
1 8x10 mixed media canvas fabric
1 5x7 fabric frame
3 mini wooden spools
Handful mini clothespins
Handful felt flowers and butterflies
1 pkg Vintage Crazy Eights children's card game
10 blank ATCs

1 Very Vintage McCall's 1946 magazine in great condition. Lots of adds, pictures, both color and black and white, fiction stories ... This is a large, oversized magazine...absolutely perfect for LOTS of creative art...

So, again to recap: to be entered in the giveaway leave a comment on my last post telling my husband why he should buy me the Hoosier Cabinet for my 50 something birthday. I will draw a name on Dec. 29th and will notify the winner of their shipment. HOW FUN, YES?!?! Oh! I am also going to include a vintage wooden box with a handle to keep all of the little trinkets and goodies in. Oh what an AltAred Artist's Treasure!

Okay, my kitchen is in aqua and red so if you don't get her the cabinet I might have to drive from Arkansas and get it myself and since I don't have a truck would kind of be impossible. And hey layaway you can't beat that. I love the vintage loot. Love, love, love vintage. Merry Christmas.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Paula, What a big smile I have looking at your giveaway! Look at you with your New Years banner - OMG it is so super! I love it so much! Paula, if you don't put that Hoosier on lay away, I'm going to drive to your antique mall and put it on layaway for you myself! It has to be yours! Snow globe - I can barely put it away each year. It is from Bath and Body quite a few years ago. I hope your birthday post includes a picture of your Hoosier in your house! Have a great week! Paula, do you know I packed away six tag books from the holiday season - I just love you for introducing them to me!
