And the winner is........

not gonna tell you yet, lolol.

First, I want to thank all you lovely girls who entered into the spirit of things and put their names on the follower gadget. It made me smile to see so many new names on there as well as loyal longtime followers. In a way you have to thank Elizabethd for the nature of this giveaway, lol, because it was she who suggested that I really ought to have one of those follower thingies on my sidebar.

I had so much fun finding little bits and pieces, everytime somebody else joined. I know its only little things, but I hope that the winner will enjoy them nevertheless. They all have nice memories attached to them, for example the little bits of fabrics had all been carefully salvaged from dresses bought at jumble sales many many years ago. Because I am an oldfashioned patchworker, lol, I prefer recycling to buying new fabrics ( unless is CK of course, lol ), and I recall many happy hours spent carefully undoing seams with the boys playing under the fabrics, lol. The bloomers, oh boy, I remember vividly haggling for them at a French Vide Greniers, I may not speak perfect French, far from it, but I can haggle with the best of them! Buttons and laces, well, they carry memories of charity shops and jumble sale outings, such pleasure!

Anyway, I had better stop rambling on and on, you all want to know who the winner is, don't you? I was up nice and early and sitting at my desk before 7am (!!!) writing out the names of all the followers and putting in double entries for the gals who had the buttons in their sidebar.


And I got my darling Hector to pick the winner


And the winner ( stuck on Hector's tongue, tehehehee, getting a doggiekiss as well ) is...............

Marigold Jam! Congratulations! Please email me with your addy so that I can post the goodies to you . Hopefully. If we have a postal service this week. Grrr.

Sigh, I feel a bit deflated now that the giveaway is over, feels as if something is missing in my day now, lol. But...... woohoo, I got a couple of Christmassy secret santas and swaps to get ready for, so all is well.

Have fun, xx

Clever Hector, and lucky Marigold Jam! What a giveaway that was, Liz...

So, have you ever thought of anything to actually DO with vintage bloomers? I have three pairs and just hang them up occasionally. Any other suggestions (apart from putting them in a giveaway)?

Most people put them on pretty hangers and display them on their wardrobe doors. But I was talking to one dealer last time I was in France and apparently during the summer the latest rage on the Med was wearing the bloomers as blouses! She showed me how it was done, the legs are obviously the sleeves and then you pin them at the front ( and back, depending on how deeply open they are ) with a pretty brooch. It does look pretty darned good actually.

Congratulations to Marigold Jam. What a fab name!
I'm sorry, it's probably wrong, but I just can't stop chuckling at the idea of vintage bloomers!
