Someday's? You just Need a Fairy Godmother,,,,,,and a Giveaway!

Okay, first of all, you need to know that we do not really DO Snow in the Pacific Northwest........Near Seattle, we get a "teaser" now and then, really it's rare, WET and when we get it--- Commerce comes to a stop unless you're a Grocer or a Tire Store..... And, if you watch/listen to the National News, Seattle got a TEASE,,,,a dusting--- which pretty much slows or stops everything,,,,And those of us up here in little Snohomish? We've got/had Major "stuff to deal with! That said,,,,,,,,,whether or not you're local? We could ALL use a little "Fairy Godmother" right now!Here ya go,,,,,,and scroll down for my latest Giveaway!

Can you even STAND how cute she is? I found "her" in an Antique shop in a "bin" missing her arms,,,,,and half of her feathers,,,,,,,,butcha know? She had potential! So- I picked her up for a couple of bucks, gave her new arms, Splendid German Pink Foil Dresden Wings,,,,,,,and a "new Home!"

I made her a "Wand," and surrounded her with Vintage Mushrooms/flowers atop a box covered in Vintage wallpapers/trims. I had SO much fun "reviving her!"

What 3 Wishes would YOU have, right NOW???

Since I still had this chunk of Vintage wallpaper out, I covered the top of a LITTLE heart shaped box and embellished it.......It'll hold about ONE truffle,,,,,,,but it was fun to make in this colorway..........

And finally,,,,,I ended up making this "Romantic Heart." (You can win this, or one similar,,,,,,read on!)

Mostly neutrals, but as you can see, bits of vibrant Pink/soft pink and touches of Aqua. It only measures about 6"x6" but would be fun to hang on a cabinet/door or to include in a "romantic vignette."

It was funny, because right after I started shooting images of these projects, I got a couple of copies of the Romantic Country Magazine from Harris Publications,,,,,,,or Mary Forsell, the Publisher of said magazine......And I looked at the Colorway THEY had on the Cover and what I'd been working on today,,,,,,,,and loving as of late,,,,,,,,,,

So? Here's the deal.  Leave me a comment on THIS blog post for One Chance.
