Blast from the past

So what could I offer for my birthday giveaway?  I wasn't pleased with the large berry.  Something about it screamed big ass to me.

I didn't like the way the journals refuse to lie flat.  You can't trust paper mache.


 So it will be one of my boxes.








You have your choice of the Mary Antrim 4" tall round,
 
 
 
or the 5" round Bugle Boy.
I think this is my favorite label of the dozens I've done.
 
Your choice of one box and inside will be the little wood heart box.  The lid pivots on a wooden dowel in the base.  Red velvet bottom.  This is the interior of the 5".  I have no idea why I lined it with script.  The 4" is not.
 
Both are aged and primitive, waxed and buffed.
 
Here's the problem.  I am getting comments emailed except for those with AOL or Yahoo email addresses, and anyone Google+.  I wanted to congratulate Karen on her Weight Watcher goal but can't even view her profile because I am not Google+.  So I will need to check this actual page for entries but you can also email me direct to participate.
 
I will draw a name on Thursday evening at 10 pm.  Please include your initials (especially for anonymous), specify Mary or Bugle in your entry, and check Friday for the winner.  I cannot email 99% of you.
Sorry, USA only.
 
That's all folks!

Happy Happy Birthday!! Thanks for the chance! I adore the Bugle one, and I think you lined it with script because it is beautiful :) I made a strawberry once with texty fabric and when I read it with my glasses I had prominently displayed a section which said "disembowel"...oh my!!

I enjoy your blogs. Feel the same about hot flashes--enough already. Thank goodness I am over most of them but still have occasional hot mess.

A generous birthday giveaway! Years ago I did the bugle boy sampler which hangs on my bedroom wall, so it would make sense to choose that box if lucky enough to win.

Happy birthday. Great offering and thanks for the opportunity. I don't think any of my comments go through as I have gmail and google. It is really annoying as I like to comment. I have tried everything I can think of to correct the issue. No luck.

Thanks Judy Heartland stitcher

Linda said...

Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing your Birthday with us. Hope it's wonderful. I love following your ordeal with contractors and renovations. It makes me feel so much better knowing that we are not the only ones dealing with this. If I should be lucky, I would choose the Mary box. She would have a good home and a special place to be displayed. LW in Strasburg PA.
