Sharing The Love -- TWO Valentine's Giveaways


This giveaway is now over -- the winner has been picked... BUT stay tuned for other giveaways soon!


As promised, it's time for another giveaway...

no real reason - just want to.  

:)

So....

Here's what I'm thinking:


Think you can use this big guy?

If you'd like the full scoop on it -- all the dimensions and
various ideas for what to use it for,


So if you are so inclined, 

leave a comment on this post and get yourself 
officially entered to win!

I'll draw a name on Sunday afternoon,
that way I can ship it out
to the winner on Monday!

If you'd like to pass the word via your blog,
feel free!   ;)


It's such a neat piece and is just 
fabulous to have around for enteratining -- 

holds many, many glasses/mugs on the buffet!   

When you're not using it for your swanky soiree,
it is just as at home on your arts/crafts table 
holding scissors, spools of ribbon, and all manor
of other essentials of creativity!

Hope you'll enter -- I'm thrilled to give one away
to some lucky winner.


Want to know about 

ANOTHER FABULOUS GIVEAWAY?

This one is from my sweet friend 

Heidi from



Heidi's giveaway features

 a

giftcard from.....

her blog!

So... 

that about does it!

There are more new things on the way to the shop from
fresh, new vendors -- can't wait to show you!

Good luck to you all -- wish I could just send 

EACH OF YOU 

a prize!

Have a FABBY weekend and I'll
check back in on Sunday
to announce the winner!
