Our "Just Everything" Giveaways

Victoria and I have thoroughly enjoyed blogland and we have enjoyed blogging with each other. It is so nice when one of us has a crazy time in life for the other to pick up things and carry on. From time to time life gets in the way for both of us at the same time and we have to take a deep breath (as Amy aka Maisy told us to do in the comments the other day) and obviously blogging gets put on the back burner. This has happened the last couple of weeks and we hope to be back on track now that summer has arrived. We love reading and commenting on your blogs too. Occasionally over the past year time has gotten away from us commenting in a timely manner but we really try to get back to each and every one of you as often as possible, just like so many of you do with us. Thank you girls for your blogs and comments. We have loved "meeting" you all.

We have decided to do several giveaways in this post. Today we were joking with each other that this is our 100th post, winter, spring and summer giveaway because we never did any of those. They just didn't happen. So, we are calling this our "Just Everything" giveaways.

Since we love to find things at garage sale and thrift stores, we wanted to let you guys in our some of the great finds. There are really no rules. All we ask is that you comment on this post with item or items you would like to win. This way you can sign up for only the things you would like or use----or please feel free to sign up for all of them. Just to make sure you understand, these are not new items. They are just great things that we have found in our thrifting excursions.

Our first giveaway is a beautiful tablecloth and ten napkins that Victoria found at a garage sale for $1.00! It is just lovely and so summery. In fact we put it on her table to take a picture and her sweet girl said, "what a beautiful table cloth." We know someone out there will appreciate the springy pretty embroidered flowers and the delightful green trimmed napkins. This is a large tablecloth. Maybe Victoria can do some quick measurements and post them for us on Friday--her day off.

Our second giveaway is a 12x12 scrapbook album. Those of you who scrapbook or even just would like to fill a pretty book with photos, will love this. I found several of these for a good deal and would love to pass one of them on to you.

Our third and last giveaway is a bowl. : ) You may remember one just like it from a previous post. I found three of these in a thrift shop for .10 each, kept one for myself, gave one to Victoria and I'm giving one away. It is just a cereal size bowl, but it has a unique shape and the black medallion in the center won me over. I'm sending one plate/bowl hanger that was also found while thrifting along with the bowl. To make this particular giveaway more exciting than just a bowl, it also includes a $10.00 Starbucks gift card. The card is not shown, but will be included. Mocha Frappuccino here you come!!!

These giveaways are a thank you to all of our blogging friends, but please feel free to sign up even if you are new to our blog or have been a lurker. We love to meet new friends too.

Sign up for these giveaways will end on Monday evening, June 8th, at 10:00pm EST.

Happy Wednesday and happy "just everything" giveaway.

Christina and Victoria

Oh wow I am all about the tablecloth being a vintage linen fan .
Sign me up please :)
A girl can never have enough linens any more than she can have enough shoes.
I am so impressed you found it for $1.00 .
I am also all for the frugal thrifty kind of shopping.
It is so much fun to find great treasures.
Blessings to you for all the happiness your blogging brings to so many.
Have a wonderful week.

I'd love anything you are offering- it's all great! I never see anything for $.10, where the heck do you shop?? The cheapest thing we've found is an old ball that looked like an eyeball, my 3 y/o wanted it and it had no price tag. I actually paid $.25 for it!!
