Vintage Grab bag GIVEAWAY (closed)

As promised, here is a post on my summer giveaway. It's going to be a good one because I am in the process of a purging to cut down on my possessions. You know how that is- you move and realize just how big your storage space really was? Yep- we had two. Now that we live in a much bigger space with an attic to ourselves I am able to see how much stuff we really have, so my loss is one lucky reader's gain!

Here is what I have so far:

A Vintage gingham apron in your choice of color (pink, blue or green)
Custom Tart Deco hair flower to match the apron
Vintage embroidered hanky (depending on your name, I may have one w/ initial)
Vintage cook book
A CD of scans from various vintage hair/wedding/sewing books & magazines I own (all out of print), plus some extra electronic goodies
Vintage sewing pattern with printed instructions on how to resize
Vintage sewing notions 

Just added: vintage stockings & pair of vintage rhinestone earrings!

Remember that the hair flower will be matched to the color of apron that you choose, as well as the hanky (with a possible initial if I have one to match your name). There will also be more surprise goodies as I continue to go through my stash over the week! I haven't even touched my jewelry yet (hint hint).

Since this is going to be an extra special giveaway, it calls for extra special rules to enter. I want to make sure the prize goes to someone who truly loves vintage and will enjoy it to the fullest.

** E-mail me a picture of you wearing your favorite vintage (or vintage reproduction) outfit and a short blurb telling me about it. Do this first. This is mandatory to enter! If I really like your pic and story, I may even give you an extra entry (wink)!

After you send me the picture, you can do the following for extra entries-
- Follow this blog and leave a comment on this post letting me know (or telling me you already follow)
- Post about this on your blog and leave a comment with the direct link (this will get you two extra entries)

The giveaway is open to US residents only due to shipping costs. International readers can enter if they pay for the difference in shipping. Sorry, I am a poor grad student right now :(

~To the 7 readers who voted on my giveaway poll and left a comment on the post (meeyeehere, kelly, vintage grrl, dolly cool clare, emily, stefanie valentine, and jann), you are automatically entered with one entry, even if you don't send a picture. If you want more entries then you can also do the above steps.

The giveaway ends next Friday, July 9th, midnight (central time). I will post the winner on Sunday the 11th.

Since I started cooking for real, not just microwaving meals....I find I could use a few aprons. I love the vintage type. I follow your site, it is awesome.

Due to my lack of synergy with my computer, I can't get your email so here is a link to my favorite vintage outfit:

I clicked over from Eartha's new blog because I could not resist a name like Tart Deco.

It's my favorite vintage outfit even though I'm not wearing it (sweet goodness if only I could squeeze myself into them). They remind me of my granny, of thrifting at my favorite old timey spot, of repurposing and surrounding yourself with objects you love!

Looking forward to checking out your blog.
