something for you.

De-clutter day. I have four packs of bright colourful bits and bobs that would be perfect for craft fun with kids. There are small pieces in these though so I would suggest supervision and a watchful eye. (We did nearly have a trip to the hospital in the 80's when my 3 year old sister stuck some beads up her nose!!)
These packs in red, yellow, green and blue contain Papers, fabric scraps, beads, tags, trims and all manner of fun things for making mobiles, decorations or collages. And of course something for grown ups, two of my archive vintage embellishment packs, one in Violet/ivory and one green/amber each contains ribbons, sequins, beads, an antique postcard and more.

Just leave a comment below along with the first and second colour choice of the pack you would prefer and I will have a friend draw the names out of a vintage handbag on Saturday 14th of February, Valentines day. Good luck!

i just typed out a whole gushing comment about how much i love this blog and how i read it with my morning cup of earl grey and said that i think the blue pack is darling and the violet/ivory one is so romantic. and hit publish and found an error message. did you find it? or did it just disappear? no matter - the sentiment is the same! x

Nanette said...

Being someone who spent some time in hospital due to a yogi bear chocolate wrapper firmly up my nose, I can sympathise with your sister! These are all so delightful, if I had to choose it would be the blue or red for the kiddies and the violet/ivory for myself.

Kate said...

Ooh they are beautiful! I love all of them, but especially the green one. Thank you for such a lovely giveaway!

Carmen said...

Oh, these are such sweet gifts to offer at random!

Put me down for the "grown ups" packages first in violet/ivory and then green/amber, please:)

Amazing!

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

My daughter would love this! So I have to leave a comment and give it a shot for her. Green would be first choice, blue second.

mimi charmante said...

Not do I only adore your blog, your flickr, your shop, but this sounds just fabulous for a house of boys - two of which love doing projects with mummy!

Sam said...

I would adore the grown up pack in violet/ivory but the kid in me is crying out for my second choice to be the green kiddies pack. I don't know which to listen to ;)

Which is your favourite?

Have a lovely week!

Amy said...

Oooooh, I don't know which one to choose. They all look fun. But if I really could have the luck to win one, than the ivory. Second best the green. Fingers crossed and thank you for such a fun giveaway!
Warm greetings, Jeannette

The Fab Miss B said...

Look at all that fun packed into a little plastic baggie! I love them all. I spy a butterfly in the green one that would make the perfect hat for one of my pipe cleaner ballerina gals!

ArtsyMama said...

Love all of them! I was off to your etsy shop before even reading the end of your post! Then I saw that it was a giveaway. What fun:) The green reminds me of spring and growth, seemingly so far away. I could use some of that. The orange...I just love orange! Those would be my top picks. The "adult" packs are also just gorgeous. Love the green and amber combo.
Happy Heart Day!

Enna said...

It would be red or green for me, please... My sister stuck old chewing gums found on the pavement up her nose while we weren't watching. Probably saving it for later. The doctors had quite a surprise and spent hours getting this sticky, spaghetti like blob out of her nostrils. 24 years later it is still regularly mentionned in family reunions !

fleurdelys said...
