Giveaway Time: The Vintage Housewife

It's giveaway time! This month's theme is "the Vintage Housewife", offering a selection of vintage and retro items to make you a good little wifey. (Naturally there's barware involved! Like you had to ask. For making a rum and Valium on the rocks, of course.)

(Remember: as soon as I hit 300 followers, we're gonna do an extra special giveaway, something out of my own collection!) So let's shut up and get on with it already...



Photobucket

1.) Vintage melamine creamer and vegetable bowl.

2.) Retro (read: brand new, not vintage) glass & metal cocktail shaker set.

3.) Retro (again, not vintage) bowling-themed plates.

4.) 3 vintage aprons (a sheer yellow organdy apron is hidden under the others). The red floral & cherries print feed sack one is likely 30's.

5.) Vintage 50's/60's white beaded, 4-strand necklace.

6.) A handful of vintage (80's, but still vintage!) recipe note cards with a gingerbread man & jellybean print!

7.) Vintage cateye sunglasses with glitter! They are prescription, but a low one- I wore them even while wearing contacts. (Not perfect, but still wearable.)

8.) Set of 2 vintage Libbey Silver Leaf wine glasses.
