My 300 Followers/600 Posts Celebration Giveaway

I'm so pleased to be celebrating having more than 300 wonderful friends who visit this blog!  I'm also excited that I've posted more than 600 posts in the 2-1/2 or so years I've been blogging at Indulge Your Shelf!  To mark these milestones, I'm giving away something that so many of us antique lovers and paper arts fans love:
an album full of ephemera!
I created this album for one of you to enjoy.
There's a pocket made from vintage fabric...
decorated with a gorgeous vintage flower.
Opposite it is an antique advertisement card; isn't that little girl precious?
The page she is on is the front of slip-in pocket.
The back of the pocket is decorated with a vintage silver doily and one of my tag creations...
trimmed with seam binding, and decorated with a sewing pattern flower I made.
Best of all,I'm including a selection of some of my favorite ephemera!
You'll get vintage wallpaper...
book pages...
cool old papers...
 
some very special papers...
like these ledger pages from the 1850s, and this page from a lace sample book...
 cards, and tickets, and stamps...
etc...
 plus, Dresden foils and Dennison labels!
 It all fits nicely in your album...
 and I think you'll really love it!
To win this "Thank you!" gift, all you have to do is comment on any post on this blog dated today (or any day after today), up until Friday, July 8! 

That gives you plenty of time to come back and visit, and every comment on every post between now and July 8 at 11:59 pm MT counts towards the giveaway!

If you're a follower, old or new, mention it in your first comment and that one counts as 2 chances to win!

If you have blogged about my giveaway on your blog, (feel free to grab that first photo), tell me on any comment and that once also counts as 2 chances to win!

I'll pick a name in a drawing this time, and post the name on July 9!  Good luck everyone!

Suz said...

Good job, Laurie. Two big accomplishments!!! I would love to enjoy that journal. The ephemera...drool...I am lusting after it. I laughed at the S and H Green Stamps. I actually remember my mom putting them in the little books. They were always such a bother. Little stamps all over the place and little books, half filled and greasy (always located in some strange unused drawer in the kitchen). The page from the lace sample book. Oh my!!! I am just croaking!!! I love your suitcase and the Silver Bella book brought tears to my eyes. I remember all of you with your glittery bracelets. So much beauty at Silver Bella, huh?
Well, I hope you pick me ;-) but I will be nice and congratulate the lucky winner!
Big hugs,
Suz
