Vintage-Inspired Giveaway

Well, this post is my 444th published post.  So in honour of my upcoming 500th post, I decided to have a giveaway!  The giveaway includes:

  • A ruffled ticking-stripe and polka-dot apron made by me and embellished with buttons (both vintage and new)
  • A beautiful vintage-inspired jewellery set made by Deb of Tangibles & Touchables. It is made of cream-coloured glass pearls and glass beads, with silver accents. (Note: the pearls aren't as peachy as they appear in the photos)
  • A battered 1945 copy of one of my favourite books, Chronicles of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery.
  • And possibly some surprise extras. 

How to enter: Comment!  On this post or any post!  Every comment I get on this blog beginning from today equals one entry into the giveaway.  Feel free to spread the word in your blogs or facebook or twitter, however you choose!  This giveaway is open to anyone in North America.  Please ensure there is a way to contact you either in your comment or attached to your profile.

Of course, please still leave comments even if you don't want to enter the giveaway!

The winner will be announced in my 500th post, which I'm guessing will be somewhere around the end of March, beginning of April.  I'll try to post often so this doesn't drag on forever!  Coincidentally, mid-April marks my 4 year anniversary of blogging!

PS: To a Pretty Life now has a facebook page and an advertise page...check it out and spread the word!
