Shabby Apple Giveaway: Vintage Inspired Holiday Dress

Nov 16, 2010 by

My love for vintage inspiration naturally extends from the home to my wardrobe, and Shabby Apple’s new “All That Jazz” collection of dresses with a 1920s and 1930s aura is indeed one of the apples of my eye (no pun intended).   One lucky Poetic Home reader will win the grey “Moon River” dress and inspire nostalgia and romance at holiday parties everywhere this season!

Just leave a comment below, and you could be donning the dress just in time for the holidays!  The contest is open for one week, and I will draw a random winner next Wednesday, November 24th.  Good luck!

An Appreciative Note and a Small Giveaway

Dec 8, 2009 by

I’m so grateful for the holiday love the Olivetti Valentine has been enjoying!  Janine from UPPERCASE curated a beautiful collection of treasures for Etsy’s Storque inspired by the magazine, and I was deeply honored for her kindest mention of my shop’s Olivetti Valentine (Janine and I originally “met” on Flickr via our shared love for vintage writing machines!).   It also brought a large smile to my face to see the Valentine as one of the picks from Bird and Banner for Design*Sponge’s 2009 bloggers’ wishlist. (Thank you for the keen eye Annie!)

More importantly, I’m also ever so grateful to YOU, my kind supportive readers and friends, for spending time with me in my little blogging space.  As a wee token of holiday appreciation, I would like to host a small giveaway of universal typewriter ribbons from my Etsy shop.

To enter, simply leave a comment with your preference of a black or red/black universal typewriter ribbon (I’d love to hear about your typewriters too!) by midnight PST on Thursday, and I’ll randomly draw two names on Friday.   Happy typing!

Vintage Sewing Delights Giveaway!

Sep 25, 2008 by

I’m happy to announce the first Poetic Home giveaway!  With the theme of “vintage sewing delights,” this giveaway includes a medley of vintage sewing accouterments, such as patches, lots of embroidery and lace pieces, antique Indian beaded embellishments, zippers, seam binding, wooden spools, a buttonhole sewing machine attachment set, needlepoint work (the Coronado painting is not included…sorry!), and much more! There’s also a “crazy-daisy winder” which is meant for creating yarn daisies (I think).

To enter, simply submit a comment by Sunday, September 28th…and letting me know about your most recent sewing project would be lovely too!  I’ll draw a winner by random number and announce on Monday, September 29th and happily ship out the package of vintage sewing fun!
