I Heart You All

Thanks so much for all those comments!
My goodness!
I guess that Vagabond canvas purse is pretty fab...
Is it too late to change my mind?
Just kidding...
It deserves to be used!

Before I tell you who the lucky randomly selected winner is...

I wanted to share this sweet, antique pin cushion
 that I found in Essex, CT a few weeks ago.

At the time, I thought it would make a wonderful gift
for several different people on my list.
The more I looked at it...the more I loved it!
So I decided to keep it for myself... least for a while.
(Shame on me!)

I love blogging for many different reasons...
One of the best is the friendships that have developed 
 through sharing our love for beautiful vintage things.

To all of YOU...
Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

And the randomly selected winner of the 800th Post Give-Back


The weekend is here... 
I hope everyone has a good one!

Laura, I'd have a difficult time parting with this pretty little heart myself. It would fit right in to my life should you decide to want to sell it. ;-)
Fun to see it, so thanks for sharing the image. ~ Sarah

Bummed that I didn't win, but congrats to Susie...she's going to get one GORGEOUS bag! I'm new to your blog, but have spent the last couple of days digging through your old posts, and am now a die-hard fan forever!! Your photography is exquisite and draws me in like a magnet. Wow, all of it. I'd love to go shopping with you sometime--looks like you know all the wonderful places, but they're all on the wrong coast! So I'll just tag along with you through your photos :-)
