5-6-7-8 Vintage Giveaway

You guys probably think I'm insane with this massive header swapping I've been doing lately. I'm just so fickle when it comes to graphics! Nothing has felt right to me just yet so I suppose I'll leave this one up for a while, at least while I'm on my trip, and see if it doesn't stick. Opinions are welcome though!

Now I have someone to introduce you to.

This is my friend Kathy. She's from London and loves to thrift.
Photobucket
She's got a really pretty blog full of her favorite vintage finds.

30th May
She's got a really cute Etsy store.
Vintage Grunge Floral Print Sundress Size S/M
Vintage Lace Sleeveless Blouse Size M
Peter Pan Collar Vintage Day Dress Size Small
And she wants to do a giveaway! I've wanted a good tapestry clutch for years, and I'm almost in tears I can't enter to win this one too.




It's an easy one to enter. All you have to do is follow Kathy's blog, 5-6-7-8 Vintage. International entries are welcome, and the contest will run until next Tuesday at 9pm. I know that's an odd time, but I'll just be getting back from my trip late Monday night.

i really like this header. It's simple and not distracting, and definitely makes me think that it's you under that wide-brimmed hat! adorable.

Oh she is so pretty and I love her clothes a lot. Thanks for sharing this with us! I love the giveaway! Following her now and hope to see more in her shop soon too!

As for your headers changing, both were lovely. I liked this one and the one that was a photo.
What happened to the pretty background colour you had with this? or is my computer just messing up in not showing it suddenly?

Annie, Time Enough for Drums said...

I'm pretty sure I already follow her blog; but I'll stop by to make sure. I've been searching and SEARCHING for a tapestry bag, so I really hope I win! I love the new header, but I liked it with the other font that was on the side, not underneath.

Hope your trip is lovely! Love, Annie.

This bag is so beautiful! I've never seen one with such pretty detail at the clasp! And Kathy is an amazing source for inspiration!

I like the picture of the header, but I (like the other Annie) like the font on the side rather than the bottom.

She is definitely wonderful indeed! Love her style! Her etsy store is quite amazing too! So how you decided on this header? :) It's okay to be fickle, you know! :) It's fun to experiment with different looks and you'll eventually decide what your favorite is.

I agree, I actually like this header more than the actual photo one.

It is quite simple and not distracting, as Melrose said. But definitely not boring.

Maybe you want to fill up the spaces on the sides with something?
