The Winning Number!

 We recently found these old license plates
 stashed in the back of the garage.
 They once belonged to Mr. Flea's grandfather
and are all New Jersey plates from 1920 through 1928.
They were filthy, but after cleaning them up we were surprised to find that some are in pretty good condition despite their age.


Oh! 
You want to know the randomly selected winner of the
52 FLEA and Cabbages and Roses Give-Back?

Well, first let me say thanks to all of you who left comments.
 And to those who  spread the word...who blogged about it and put it out on Facebook ...thank you too!
I appreciate it.



The lucky winner is:
Elyse 

Thanks to everyone who played along! 
I hope to have another Give Back soon...

...in fact I'm thinking about doing something along the lines of 
shopping for treasure for a special winner
 at the Madison Bouckville show in August.

Remember when I did that a few years ago?
It was tons of fun for me!

Thanks to all for playing along...
Thanks to all who follow along...
I hope your week is going well!

Many congratulations to Elyse. You have the most wonderful giveaways Laura. I missed this one as I was away !!!!
..... and, you just keep on finding treasures. I love old number plates especially American ones. I think anything from another country holds so much more mystery and romance that the same thing from one's own country, don't you ? Our old number plates just don't seen the same !! I have one old license plate from the US propped up in our conservatory.
.....and, you can do a shopping for treasure giveback anytime you like Laura. It's fine by me !!!! hehe.
Have a lovely week. XXXX
