ultimate vintage lover's giveaway.

well, hello...and good evening to you!
without further ado, let's get down to business. as most of you know by now, shopebv.com is launching very, very soon, & in celebration & to build up our fan base a little before launch day, we are giving away a super huge prize package! this prize package contains a whopping thirteen items & was put together by yours truly. it is valued at over $1000. (i'm just kidding. it's really not. it's just super cool, & if i sold all these items separately on my website, it'd probably be valued somewhere around $200 or so) i chose a sampling of things i just adore. i own items very similar to all those included in the prize pack. the winner will be chosen on sunday, july 19th & announced via blogspot, so make sure you bookmark this blog!
so...what do i have to do to win you ask? it's super easy! just follow these steps:
1. "like" everybody's buying vintage on facebook. i'll even make it easier. here's the link: facebook.
2. suggest us to your friends. everybody will get an entry into the contest for suggesting even one friend, but it sure would make me smile if you suggested us to bunches of your friends...and the more you suggest, the better your chance of winning. one friend suggestion=one entry into the drawing. you can find the link to suggest friends at the top left corner of the page, underneath our picture.
3. really, really, really want to win? scroll to the bottom of our page, and on the bottom left hand side is a button that says "share". click that link & post us to you page. you will receive 10 bonus entries for posting our link to your page!
4. but wait...there's more. you can also receive 10 bonus entries for following us on twitter.
5. be sure to comment on our page & let me know how many friends you suggested & if you shared our link on your page and/or followed us on twitter! i'll count up all the entries & chose a winner on sunday, july 19. i'll announce the winner here, so make sure you bookmark or follow our blog. everything will be shipped to the winner, anywhere in the world, for free!
ok, ok, ok! here's the loot! included in the ultimate vintage lover's prize package are all thirteen of these items:
1. vintage 1980's floral party dress. features puff sleeves, deep v back, and uneven gypsy cut back for a little added edge. although it is not pictured, the coordinating floral belt will be included.
2. vintage 1970's hand dyed (by me) grey camisole. very flirty & perfect underneath a blazer or alone.
3. vintage red & blue scarf. long enough to tie around your neck, in your hair, under a vest...the possibilities here are endless.
4. vintage 1980's big circle sunglasses. these are so neat!
5. vintage 1970's yellow shorts & cami lounge set. features shoulder tie bows. cute as pie! perfect to sleep in. deadstock...vintage, but never worn. i have a pink set i bought as a set with these & they are so comfy & awesome.
6. november 1973 issue of women's household. such cute articles! you will really enjoy reading through these vintage magazines. i've gotten great ideas from them.
7. fall/winter issue 1970 issue of mccall's you-do-it decorating magazine.
8. november 1974 issue of women's household. be sure to read the "calling young homemakers" page! neat recipes too.
9. vintage pastel bead necklace.
10. vintage hippie beads double bracelet/choker.
11. awesome vintage gold medallion necklace.
12. vintage 1980's neon yellow jumbo hoop earrings. deadstock.
and last but not least...item #13: all of this will be packaged inside an awesome olive vintage train case! i included a picture of mine at the bottom. mine was a gift from my super awesome friend jess & we decorated it with some cool stickers & scarves. i can't wait to see what you do with yours!

love, love, love.

hello, hello!
...and greetings to you! well, today was one of those days where i just woke up on the right side of the bed. the boy had things to do today so he hustled out pretty early this morning, but i rolled over & opened one eye long enough to catch a look at how handsome he looked. ever since, i've been in quite the lovey dovey romantic mood all day. it's quite the exciting thing when you find the right one to spend your life with...perhaps one day we will even get married. :)
anyway, so i'm piddling around the house this morning doing a little of this & that, making eggs & toast with presley, cleaning here & there, what have you...and eventually ended up like i do so many days, right in front of the laptop looking through beautiful images. i wanted to share some with you guys. notice they're all kinda themed today. ;)
smooch, smooch.
