Penny for your thoughts

I found this little piggy bank for $1 the other day at the op shop. It's one of those old ones that you have to break with a hammer to get your pennies out because it doesn't have a stopper on the bottom.

Upon first inspection it's just a cute little pig with some sweet pink roses on his back. And then...

BAM! Evil pig! Pig could karate chop you with those eyelashes! No robber's gonna pinch my pennies, hah! Despite his crazy eyes I still found this little piggy strangely appealing. Besides, I don't think he's really evil. Just misunderstood.

Winners are grinners

I can finally announce the winners of my thrifty giveaway, albeit a week and a half late sorry about that! Selected using the highly complex and reliable method of names-in-a-tin, the winners are...

Congratulations to Nat of Dear Little House and nessQ :) One of these pretty little packages will be making its way to you very shortly. In the meantime I'm off to take some pictures of my recent finds while the sun is shining. It's a nice change from the gloomy weather we've been having that's for sure. Hope you all have a lovely day :)

Giveaway time :)

It is finally time to hold my elusive giveaway as a belated celebration of reaching triple figures. Mostly it's a thankyou to everyone who has read my blog and continues to come back despite the often long time between posts. I really appreciate all your lovely comments and being able to share a snippet of my hobby with you :)

I have two little packs of thrifty treasures to giveaway. The first contains a tapestry clutch that you may remember I picked up at a vintage party I went to not long ago, as well as a sheer vintage handkerchief made of flocking-type material embossed with velvet flowers, and finally a lovely brown compact mirror with silver detailing.

The second pack contains a small, gold, vintage-style clutch with a lace edged silk handkerchief and a cute heart shaped ring from the 70s that I picked up on etsy. The ring is a little big for me and I would estimate it to be a size medium.

To enter, just leave a comment telling me how you follow my blog and which prize pack would be your first and second preference. I love reading new and interesting blogs, so if you feel like spreading the love perhaps share one of your favourites :)

The giveaway will be open for two weeks, ending on the 16th of July at 6pm AEST (or there about; I never was any good with timezones). Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you! If you don't feel comfortable leaving your email for all to see, you can always email me and let me know the name you used to comment :)
