We have a winner!! Or could that possibly be winnerS?

You know, it takes an awful long time write out all the names of the good folk who entered the giveaway. And to visit their blogs ( you will find out a bit later why I did that ). And then to fold all the iddy biddy pieces of paper. Only to find that the heart box I normally use for drawing winners is now full of inchies. Arrghh. And I didn't want to mess them about ( fragile little darlings ), so I used a very pretty little flower tin for the draw instead. I had to take the photos of the draw with flash, which is a nuisance.

My DS No. 3 picked the winner for me. I was so excited!!! Are you? Before I announce the winner though, I just want to remind you all what was on offer -

The collage, made with lots of antique and vintage French goodies

The vintage Eiffel Tower

The vintage French ephemera

the lace and trims

And those goodies are going to -

LYNNE MONCRIEFF from the delicious ADORN blog. Congratulations, Lynn, could you contact me please with your addy?

When I was thinking about the draw this afternoon, I realised that it would be a bit of an anticlimax after the draw had finished and the winner announced. I thought I'd be feeling a bit deflated. Can't have that on a Sunday evening, can we? Sooooooooooo........................

I decided to have two more winners, yay!!!

I prepared two little packs. A few bits of ephemera in one, and a few bits of lace in the other.
I wanted to make this draw a little bit different though. I decided that firstly I would have a separate draw for the very lovely people who had put my button with link back on their blog, even though I had said it wasn't a requirement for entering. That is why it took me sooooo long to prepare the draw, lol, I visited all the blogs!

The winner of this category receives the little ephemera pack. I suppose I had better show you pics, lol -

There are pages from an 1888 French book and a couple of music pages

pages from a very old French religious book and two 1960s French communion cards

vintage French blank luggage labels, Larousse dictionary pages and a page from a 1928 "agenda"

And the winner of this little ephemera pack is -

none other than

Congratulations, Lynn and thank you so much for putting the button on your sidebar. Her blog is just fabulous, if you have not seen it yet, do pay it a visit, you'll love it. Can I have your addy, please, Lynn? Oh, and yes, I WILL add some wine labels as well, lol, I just forgot to get them out.

For the little lace pack, I thought I'd have a draw amongst the lovely people who started following my blog in the last couple of months. The winner of that draw will receive -

Some of the fabulous antique coloured lace

A gorgeous little silk embroidered motif from the 30s, probably for lingerie-

a little bag full of vintage French mother-of-pearl buttons

and of course the fabric, a piece of gorgeous vintage French damask ticking-

The winner of this is

Terry from Terry's blog. Now here is a co-incidence. Terry is a new follower who came over from Lynn Stevens' blog, because she had seen the button there! Congratulations, Terry, please contact me with your address details.

Well, thats all folks. Thank you so much to all of you for entering and making this so exciting for me. I am sorry I had to disappoint so many of you, but don't worry, I am sure I will be having another giveaway before too long.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, toodlepip xxx
