6th Annual Black Friday Giveaway

Update: Congratulations to dear Julie who was selected by the random number generator as the winner!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I think the leftovers are the best part! I had pie for breakfast. It was Dutch apple crumb and I paired it with a cup of tea.

This is now my 6th year of the D├ęcor To Adore annual Black Friday Giveaway.

This years offerings will bring back happy memories from your childhood and provide an opportunity to perhaps create a few homemade gifts yourself.

Giveaway 007-001

Included in the giveaway are vintage holiday crafting notions, a vintage pair of shoe clips and a pearl necklace that both say “Mrs. Clause” to me. Along with other bits and bobs there is a vintage holiday handkerchief, tea towel and table runner. You can find wonderful ideas for transforming them HERE.

Giveaway 004-001

So the rules are easy. Please visit my Etsy Christmas Work Shoppe then come back and tell me in the comments what your favorite item is.

DTA Christmas 059-001

You want to do this because there is one item I have not shown in the giveaway and it may just be the item you list.

DTA Christmas 069-001

I spent most of Wednesday adding new things to the shop like the “Polka Dot Cottage”.

DTA Christmas 087-001

My kids call this creation “Dancing Santa”. This makes me smile.

Good luck! The random number generator will select a winner on Monday.

Love the adorable Jolly Old St. Nick Vintage Shadowbox, very fun and sparkly! Love reading your blog and seeing your handiwork. Thank you!

Cute things, but I love the bowling Santa, but I did not see it in the shoppe. My husband has bowled 3 300 games, two of them a week apart! Is that for sale?

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh how cute, Laura!

Dropping by to wish you a belated Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been out of town and then back with company so I hope I haven't missed too much. I got on for five minutes and had to stop almost as soon as I did. Glad to be able to read without interruption this morning.

We ate out with family so no leftovers. But I did get a turkey sandwich with Brie from a local deli for dinner. I could eat turkey daily!

While they're not exactly "Christmassy," my eye caught the Antique French Children's Puzzles. I can just picture them under the Christmas tree in a little vignette of other old toys that once delighted some beloved child's life so long ago. Thank you again for all of your inspiration!

Jeannine said...

Happy Thanksgiving! You are my kind of girl when it comes to breakfast. We'll be having the cheesecake. I like the little vintage framed reindeer and the Nutcracker ballerina corsage.

I love all of your creations but my favorite is the "Jolly Old St. Nicholas" Shadowbox! It truly tugs at my heartstrings!!!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Such a sweet giveaway! I went to your Etsy...and everything is adorable....but I want that WW2 sewing kit. That is so cool!

Denise said...

Laura, these are all wonderful -- you are so talented. :) I love so many of them, but I especially love the "Polka Dot Cottage" -- I just love the little putzes. Thanks for offering the giveaway and have a wonderful day!

Looking at your pretty confections of crafts brings back so many memories of my childhood. I love that you aren't shy when it comes to adding some glitter and sparkle to your seasonal projects. Nothing makes a pretty crafty decoration more special than a some glitter and shine.
Hope you and yours had a great Thanksgiving! {{{hugs}}}

What a wonderful treat Laura! I love your pink angel ornament!

jenbarfield said...

Hi Laura. I too love all your creations and your blogs.

My favorite item is the pink angel ornament. I decorate my tree with burgundy, pink and gold, and this little angel would fit right in!

Thank you for asking for feedback.

Merry Christmas!

Such lovely things - my absolute favorite is the vintage Santa corsage. I remember my Mom wearing Christmas corsages when I was a little girl. But I have to add that my granddaughter would love that pink angel ornament. Thanks for this generous giveaway.

Hi Laura, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your vintage turquoise reindeer shadowbox. It's so beautiful, but so are all of the items in your etsy shop.

The nutcracker clips--with the mushroom--I'm adoring mushrooms lately!
You've put so much sparkle on your site, I could just camp here awhile!
Happy DECEMBER!(Where oh where has this year gone???)
