I Think It's Time For a Give Away / 4 Days Left To Sign Up

It's been a long time since I hosted my last giveaway and I do believe the time is right for another. This purse doesn't scream Summer or Easter but It does scream Vintage design. It is all hand stitched in Penny Rug Fashion and made of wool felt and lined with a nice soft fleece. It has faux tortoise shell handles that complement the design well.

I have also posted pictures of  this handbag a few days ago on my blog.

Okay, here are the rules. Very easy to do.
1 Be a follower

2 Post about it on your blog, if you don't have a blog let me know.

3 Be sure to leave me a comment with a way to contact you
Now all that seems fairly easy. I would love to give this to one lucky follower.

Sign up begins now and ends on March 10th. I will draw the name on the 11th and ship on the 12th.

Good luck and hopefully you will have it for St. Patrick's Day

My Vintage needle case

Well, I got my vintage needle case the other day and it is everything that I thought it would be. I has one section that looks like it would hold some buttons or extra thread and three layers for needles and pins. The ends are padded for pin cushions and the leather center looks like it was used to push a needle through heavy fabric.
As a collector its everything I expected. It would have been nice if the velvet on the ends was in a little better condition but heck this is from the 1800's and I think it is okay for that age and it looks as if it was well used  not left to admire.

This is one of my other newest needle cases. It is more Asian in fashion but still very cute and unique.

I also got a vintage sewing basket that has a nice but well worn red silk lining.

The way I look at it if you are going to be sewing you may as well enjoy the tools of the trade and enjoy looking and using tools that were used by someone else many years ago.
