the giveaway...a day late

Okay, I know I said that I'd do another giveaway on Saturday to celebrate the 100 (now 107) followers mark, but I got a little behind. Blame it on the snow, blame it on the phones not working (thus, no internet), blame it on me being lazy, it's all true! So here it is, and it's only open to followers since I think you're the best!

The first half of the giveaway is a bit of bright and sunny vintage to liven up the dull winter. A vintage apron with pretty floral pockets, and a sunny yellow dutch shoe planter.

The second half of this giveaway is handmade at the dinosaur toes factory. Since these citrine earrings seemed to be a favorite, I figured I'd include them! Also included is a fabric poppy flower poppy bobby pin.

All you have to do to enter (aside from being a follower of this blog) is leave a comment with a random fact about yourself, doesn't matter what it is! I'll use to select a winner on Monday, February 8. This giveaway is open to international followers, too!

I'll send the partner info for the knick knack exchange in the morning, and I wanted to thank everyone who participated; you've made this a huge success, and I'm hoping everyone enjoys it!

    My random fact isn't very random, it is just that I have two different coloured eyes; a brown and a blue. It is called Heterochromia and I think I'll go my entire life without ever knowing why this was bestowed upon me!

  5. random fact: (although gross) i pick my scabs.

  8. ...what a lovely giveaway, thank you for including me :)

    Random Fact: Yesterday morning I had a dream I backed into a brand new Porche!! Eek! Than I drove off with a friend in my car. I was freaking out in my dream.. why did I speed off? I kept thinking.. I should go back! Leave a note on the windshield. I remember thinking, "Oh man, my husbands going to kill me!!!". So I finally drove back and the Porche was gone! Then driving through town, I felt like the whole city knew what I did!!

    So weird... the things we dream about! lol

    Hope you are doing well, dear friend ;) kiss those little dinosaur toes for me ;)


  9. This is such a wonderful giveaway, um random fact I only ate Indian for the first time 6 months ago. Gee was i missing out.

  10. i just got super excited when i saw that apron. It is made from the same fabric as my childhood blankie (aka my "feelie") not gonna lie, i still sleep with it occasionally & i'm 27. my boyf has learned to live with it. awesome giveaway!!

  11. What an awesome giveaway :) Love how the yellow really pops! Random fact: I have a fascination with maternity dresses, the big, billowy kinds, and I am looking forward to costume parties or Halloween when I can pretend that I'm pregnant and wear a maternity dress :)

  12. Oh, Danielle! I am so excited to enter in this totally AWESOME giveaway!!! you are SOOO talented! I especially love the yellow apron and the hair pin! (of course I am hoping to win, he he he!)

    ok, random fact about me, hmmm, lets see... um, well, I really like texture, like alot, it feels so good on my fingertips... I especially like to touch and feel paintings when I look at them (not so good when I go to museums)! But I hate sticky things, like orange juice on my hands... I think my sister is similar, too. She (and I both) like the feeling that sock ribbing make when they are tight on your lets and leave their ripple marks...

    ok I am a total nerd! Have a good one everyone!

  13. *not tight on your lets, its supposed to be legs... ha ha

  20. Another awesome giveaway! I think you do the best ones. ♥

    Random fact...hmmm...
    When I was 8, or so, I had a black cat named Prince. While on vacation he and our other cat disappeared (don't know if they ran away or died or what), but every time I've seen a black cat from then to now, especially if it's in my old neighborhood, I always think it's Prince...I miss that kitty.

  21. This is such an awesome giveaway!

    My random fact: Green Beans are my least favorite veggie. I really hate them.

    PS I drove by a place called Casa de Parrot this weekend and thought of you. Lately between Flojo, BrittanButterfly's Posie, & my mom's two parrots I've been wanting one.

  22. loving this giveaway! :)

    um, random fact...
    i had a pet squirrel (sorry, lauren. haha.) when i was about four.
    i was at my friend kelsey's house and we were playing on her tire swing, and something fell out of the tree.
    we went and got an old coffee can and put some nature stuff in it, and put the little baby squirrel inside.
    my mom came to get me and she said i could keep it!
    he only lived for a couple of days, but he was so cute and sweet and i loved him.

  23. random fact... i'm addicted to kashi bars - sometimes i eat them for every meal.

    i love this giveaway - everything about it!
    praying picks my number! ;-)


  24. Congrats on 107!!! Ok random fact... two years ago I hated to cook, and my roommate and dear friend would cook for me.... this is totally random because now I can't get enough of baking, and creating in the kitchen. I really don't know what happened one day it just hit me. I love love this giveaway and that apron would be wonderful to have, and those earrings so great!! XO

  25. i've enjoyed reading everyone's randomness :) and giggled.

    random fact about me: i hardly ever wear matching socks. patterned sock with a regular white one or both different patterns. i am a scatterbrain and my dryer is always hungry that i can never keep two pairs of socks for long. i wonder where lost socks go? because you would find a lot of mine. ;)

    j'adore the bright and sunny vintage apron. I think i might be more inspired to cook if it meant wearing this apron. my fiance might like that. lol

    so that's where those earrings have been hiding! great idea/addition to your cutesy giveaway.

    CHEERS to us followers xo

  26. Ohhh, what pretty yellow! Just to brighten my day! I can't wait for the knick knack exchange.
    Random fact...
    When I did have cable, I secretly loved watching American Gladiator... i know, silly. I always thought it would be fun to do the show.

  27. Those vintage Dutch items are the best!! I was engaged in Amsterdam and those stunning yellow items bring me right back to that memory!

    My random fact... I can't for the life of me work those plastic wrap containers (you know the rolls with the little sharp cutting edge?) I always goof them up! Good thing I don't need that skill for something else ;)

  30. Those earrings are BEE-U-TIFUL! Ok random fact....

    The sound of someone clipping fingernails makes me see red.

    I know. Its weird.

  31. random fact...hmm....i can't eat m&m mcflurrys from mcdonalds hardly ever because i was eating one when i found out my great grandma died. i have weird food associations.

    and that apron is awesome. i've been looking for one since i've destroyed most of my clothes while cooking lately lol :)

  32. Random fact: I stick my tongue out slightly when I'm really concentrating, like while grading papers or doing a complex math equation. It makes my boyf laugh. :p

  33. Wow! Awesome giveaway! I am crossing my fingers.
    Well, I love gummy bears. Actually, I feel like I am a kid at heart since whenever I see cartoons on a package of crackers (especially Cheez-it) at the supermarket, I have to have it. Have a good day!:0)

  37. Both parts of this give away are beautiful! I must admit though, I'm eying those earrings & I don't usually wear them, but I'd wear those ALL the time. Hmmm, random fact about me???

    I have a serious addiction to magazines. I have certain one's I subscribe to and I only allow myself to keep up to one year of each before I recycle them, because otherwise the addiction would be more like hoarding.

  38. Oh my! Great giveaway!!! I love it all!!
