Prairie Goods Giveaway #1

do you know that i have a passion....okay...{obsession}

do you know that i *love* to collect anything rusted, faded, and worn...

this passion led to living my dream of owning an antique store...

even though i have a hard time sharing...

i wanted people to remember the past, to experience the stories that can be hidden within a piece...

in celebration of the 3 year anniversary of my brick and mortar store, the opening of my etsy shop and to kick off the opening of my website {more on this later on in the week} i've decided to share some fabulous prairie finds with giveaways all week long...

i know...that's a lot of prairie goods up for grabs...

so...

first giveaway comes to us from Ginny Mae of Handcrafted at Wit's End...


Photobucket

i know....

oh.my.divine....

ginny's designs have been a with me since the very first...

i *love* how each purse is one of a kind...

each one is handcrafted from antique feedsacks..

this girl has some of the most unbelievable feedsacks around...



Photobucket


this little beauty measures about 12" tall {with handles} and about 9" wide...


Photobucket

these purses are prairie girl tested and approved...

i just wish i wouldn't have let the robin's egg blue one with a rooster pulling an egg cart go...

sigh...

i know...i have nightmares about it...

i just hope the gal from france is *loving* it as much as this prairie girl did :0)

so...

to enter to win...

#1...leave a comment...

#2...become a follower {if you're already follower just let me know}..

#3...mention this little giveaway on your fabulous blogs {please leave me a link to your blog}

#4...twitter or facebook about it...

so that is 4 chances to win...please leave a seperate comment for each entry, i will be using random.org so each entry needs it's own entry?!?! {whatever...you know the drill} ;0)

the drawing will be held on wednesday 6:00 p.m. {mst} where i will announce the winner and the next giveaway...

{i'm still trying to work up the courage to let the next giveaway go...sigh...}

just so you know it is *fabulous*...

think barns and boys...

giveaway now closed...will announce winner soon...
thanks to all who entered..you girls are amazing!!
