Ding Ding Ding! 500th Follower Giveaway

I've been planning a very special SUPER SECRET GIVEAWAY for the day I hit 500 followers...  (Welcome to the crazy house Kay!)


In celebration of the fact that I've been doing this a while now, and that you're all still reading (even when I don't DO anything. heh.)  I want to say THANK YOU!   And what better way to do that than with a prize...

For kicks (and my own amusement) the prize will be a box filled with sewing and vintage goodness.   Although I'm going to keep the contents secret until the giveaway mails out, I can promise it will hold the following yummies:
*At least FIVE gorgeous vintage patterns
*Lovely yardage from my personal stash, enough for at least one garment
*Vintage jewelry item(s)
*Vintage magazine
*Sewing notions *vintage and new*
*...and more!

And if you are suspicious of my giveaway box filling abilities, here is the last giveaway box I threw together:



Leave a comment on this post to enter!  You have until Thursday at MIDNIGHT CST.  In fairness to those who actually follow and participated in getting me to 500, you must be a follower to enter.  Although I am thankful for you all, even new visitors!  

Happy Monday, everyone!
