As promised...November Blog Give Away!

As promised here is my November blog give away. I thought I would add some vintage finds, a wonderful book on kitchen linens, a beautiful "Friends" collage and a gorgeous antique flow blue plate. I hope you find the give away is as fun as I had putting it together!
A beautiful "Friends" collage created by Barbara Jean. Her blog and shop offer some beautiful images of her creations. Her blog is on my side bar...Treasures from the Heart. This photo displays the book and 3 vintage tea towels.
The book is The Kitchen Linens Book by EllynAnne Geisel. She is also the author of The Apron Book.
This beautiful antique flow blue plate has on back
Sam Weller
Astonishes Job Trotter
Chas Dickens
Original Illustrations
R. Seymour & PHIZ
To enter my blog give away...please leave a comment on my blog. If you mention my blog give away on your blog (and let me know) I will enter your name twice for the drawing. The drawing for this lovely give away will be November 2o. I will post the lucky winner on November 21. Of course I will be adding some Christmas holiday gift tags to the give away.
Good luck!
Just a reminder in my Etsy shop...if you purchase 3 listings...the shipping is free. This free shipping offer is only good for US mailings.
