Give away time everyone!
     Here is the first of two give-aways I have planned for the next few weeks....
so lets get right down to it. This package will include:
1. ONE Halloween Shaker (which I promised back in October - better late than never!)
2. ONE Santa Ball Ornament
3. TWO sheets of reproduction vintage-style scraps from The Evergreen Press.
Yippy, three super cool gifts!
     This years Halloween Shakers are black cats. Each are painted with a traditional vintage cat design. The eyes are glittered. The crepe paper ruffled collar was hand gathered and slightly bleached at the ends to give it a worn, vintage look. There is a rusty bell and ribbons adorning the black and white striped handle. Of course, there are a few beads inside the head to add a bit of sound when shaken.
YOU PICK! Either the left shaker in the photo with white whiskers, or the shaker on the right with orange whiskers. Both are a fun tradition Halloween design.
See photos below!
     The Santa Ball Ornaments all slightly different. Some have the holly leaves on the right, some on the left. The beards are all unique, and of course, because they are all painted by hand, they each have slightly different personality, but all adorable. These original design Santas are hand-sculpted from paper clay onto a paper mache ball, painted, antiqued & aged with random splashed of real vintage mica flakes. Light weight (balls are hollow) so they will work on any type of tree or branch.

     Since I have five of these, and it would be hard to notice the slight variations in pictures, let me pick-out the perfect Santa for you! They will let me know who wants to go home to the winner!
     As a bonus, I decided to add some Reproduction Christmas Scraps for all the talented crafters out there. You know who you are!!! I bought a bunch of these sheets a few years ago from a lovely shop on Etsy, which has since closed. The scraps are very well done, have the look and feel of vintage scraps, but where made in Pleasant Hill, CA by a company called The Evergreen Press.....still in the plastic wrapping - never opened!
They are quite large, so these would make stand-out holiday statement pieces. One sheet is Santas, the other Angels, both in a Victorian style. There are so many amazing uses for these in your Christmas craft projects, I can't wait to see what you come up with!
     So here is what you do! Easy Peasy as always, leave me a comment letting me know you want to play! Make sure you tell me what shaker you want! You will get one chance to win. If you let me know you are a follower, or become a new follower, you get a second chance. That's it! On December 2nd, I will pick a winner. One week to play so let's get started!
