Photoshoots, Treasures and a Giveaway! (Extended until Oct 29th)

Thanksgiving weekend was a lot of fun! On Saturday I had a photoshoot with my friend Britt. These are my favourite of the photos (there were close to 300photos in total!)

The two other days of the long weekend was spend with family (I love family trips to the coffee shop. Mmmm Chai Lattes.....). One of the best parts of being home is being surrounded by my favourite treasures. Most of my favourite things stay at home when I am at school (in order to prevent them being damaged in transit) and I really do miss them.

My Teacups!

Northern Electric Telephone Circa 1940
(Still works!)

One of the many sewing projects I will finish... someday...

I love this teapot! It belonged to my great-grandmother. It was up at the cottage but I rescued it from certain destruction last time I was up.

Some really old books I've found at used books sales (the newest one is from 1911!). The lovely bookends were a wedding present to my grandma when she got married in the 1940s. They look very art deco!

And now for the giveaway! To celebrate reaching 50 followers, I am giving away:
1) A green and silver necklace (I used to make and sell jewelery at craft-sales. I no longer have time but I have lots of leftover necklaces!)
2) Disk 1 of Philip Marlowe radio broadcasts (from otrcat.com)
3) A little knitted bow attached to a hair clip, knitted by me :)

This giveaway is open to all my followers. Just leave me a comment telling me what you would like to see more of on my blog :) For an extra entry you can post about my giveaway on your blog and just let me know you have done so. Last day to enter is Friday October 22nd. Good luck!

One last thing, I just wanted to thank Sara for also giving me this award. See the previous post for the blogs I nominated :)
That's All.
