Blogiversary Giveaway

100_6599

Well, last Sunday marked the one year anniversary of my blog. And so after 66 outfits, 37 vintage books reviewed, 45 movies screen capped and almost 200 posts, here is the traditional Blogiversary Giveaway.

Ta-da!

Included are a polyester Japanese scarf from the Sixties, a souvenir coin purse from the Philippines, an unopened pair of seamless mesh stockings and this embroidery of a jitterbugging couple. That I made. I even framed it. She reminded me of Betty Grable in Down Argentine Way and He reminded me of Archie Goodwin dancing at the Flamingo Club. Yes, I can combine film and literary characters. You can see detail shots here and here.

Anyone can enter. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favourite whatever. Book, movie, season, word, time of day, TV show, breakfast cereal, you know whatever. Want to enter again? Mention the givewaway on your blog, twitter or facebook thing and leave another comment(s) with the link. Easy.
Giveaway will be open for two weeks and the winner will be chosen by random number on the 7th of November at around midnight-ish Pacific.

What a cute embroidery! 45 movies? I need to go back and look at the ones I've missed. Favorite? I hate picking favorites! Books or movies I couldn't narrow down, so I'll pick a season, Summer. I'm not a winter type of gal. ;)

Happy blogiversary! What a lovely giveaway. =D My favourite movie is Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's been my favourite since I was about 5. I don't know if it's 'appropriate' for a child to watch but it's such a huge part of my life. Unfortunately, I've never seen a stage show of it because where I live is kind of lame like that. ;]
