This event ends on Monday, February 15and I will close my comments section at 8:00pm EST in order to be able to go to the random generator to pick the winners. I will announce the winners of my giveaways by the end of the night on February 15.

#1: Vintage Clip-on Bow Tie
This funky bow tie is maroon with baby blue polka dots, cute to decorate with or create a new item. Could also be made into an aodrable head band.

#2: Vintage Black and White Photo Block
This black and white palm tree scenery picture is mounted on a wooden block and has a fixture to hang.
#3: Rose Bud Necklace
This necklace has a 20" chain with a toggle closing. With a vintage silver-like rose bauble and a newer black rose with a leaf this handmade (by me) necklace is cute with any outfit.

This stretch rhinstone bracelet measures 2" unstretched and 3" stretched. The four leaf heart clover is a cute touch to this versitile bracelet. Handmade by me.
