Silver Bella Giveaway

Since everyone is champing at the bit for swaps but none have presented themselves yet, I'm going to jump-start things with a giveaway. This giveaway has a bit of a challenge; don't be afraid, I'm sure y'all are all up to it. Here's the deal: Now that your on my blog check out anything/everything you desire but leave a comment on this post and also the post named, "What's New with Doojies @ The Pink Cabbage?". Then go to http://www.mizjuneytalks.blogspot.com/ and get to know a Bella new this year and leave a comment on any of her posts; she's Julia and we've been best friends since we were in elementary school (and we are old). We haven't seen each other in over 15 years but have remained close via email and blogs and will finally be reunited at Silver Bella in November. So many awesome things to look forward to but that will definitely be the cherry and whipped cream for me. Do all this by August 20th and I will draw on the 21st. I shall be equitable about choosing; there will be a hat involved and completely random, no favorites, sorry, though I love you all who I know and all I will get to know; it's an amazing event. Gig 'em. P.S. Oops, I guess you might want some details on this giveaway piece. It's an antique silver plate tea server I got from Chicks Picks topped with a once-rustic bird from the cottage and a little baby bird. I painted all robin's egg blue then covered it with the same color German glass glitter and added a little nest basket with eggs and tied on with a silk ribbon and pink velvet leaves. It stands about 10" tall. Sent to the lucky winner free of charge.

What a nice plan to reunite with an old friend at SB -- altho we may all be old friends there :). Love the glittered teapot -- and the iron railing behind it, too.
