Weekend Junque & 100th Post Giveaway

Ah, the joys of half-price days at the local Goodwill! Take a look at a bit of my weekend haul...
Extremely large (as in HUGE) vintage syrup pitcher with bakelite handle, lovely crocheted cushion covers, pressed glass bowl with floral decorations, floral linen tablecloth (yes, it's got stains and holes but purple flowers = be still my beating heart), a chrome pedestal, a not at all old metal cloche and...
Painted poppies on a lidded jar. In red and orange. For $1. Happy girl dance. Silly, happy girl dance all the way home. And this is just a sample of the weekend finds. All of which leads me to...
My 100th post giveaway. 100? Really? It seems a bit auspicious and as such requires a bit of a do. So one lucky (at least I think they'll be lucky) winner will receive a bit of me in the form of:
One of my altered vintage almanacs, an altered ironstone platter, an altered chrome bowl and one of my upcycled jewelry necklaces. A small thanks for taking this journey with me and often times finding a kind comment to send along. Giveaway will run through March 1st at which time I shall coerce (I mean ask) one of my offspring to draw the name of our winner. Entry is easy and you've got the usual three ways to apply with the ability to get a total of four entries:
1) leave a comment here for one entry
2) become/be a follower for another entry and leave me comment letting me know you're "on board"
3)write a post on your blog about the giveaway - leave me a comment telling me you've done so and you'll receive TWO entries

I have not been to the half price day at Goodwill yet. When I went, it was packed with people, so I left. You went at the right time for all these goodies.
