Lost & Found...and the giveaway winners!




I have been thinking about a little something lately. It involves you, me and my Etsy shop. Oh, and my painted furniture, too! Let me explain a little...

 I first started selling on Etsy last winter, and your warm welcome made me feel all warm & fuzzy...you support me endlessly, you encourage me to keep hunting for new things, and your creativity with the finds from my shop never cease to amaze me! 

I love sharing my finds with all of you, and what I love even more, is when you get them home and share them right back with me! What I mean by that, is how so many of you send me photos of my little finds in your home. I {LOVE} that soooo much! 

I have had you show me where you hung the sign you bought from my shop, the jewelry you made from my old game pieces, your silver collection with a few of my pieces sprinkled in....or how the dresser you brought home from my booth was the finishing touch in your little girls room! It is so awesome to see such love being given to things that were lost and unloved before I found them. 

I am not exaggerating when I say each time I am wrapping a package I always, {ALWAYS} wonder about what happens once it reaches its destination! And I am so happy that so many of you show me the 'goods' in your home, without me even asking! 

Here is what I have created to showcase your creativity...a little series on my blog I am calling Lost & Found. A form of Show & Tell where I share the photos of things you have purchased from my little shop  in your home! I have been keeping all these wonderful photos to myself for so long! Then it dawned on me one day, why am I not sharing these so others can be inspired? Fast forward to today, and this is what I came up with the share the love...I will do a post when I gather a few photos, so it could be weekly or bi-weekly...it is all up to you!



All I would need from you is a photo of the item and how you have it displayed in your home! That is it  - easy, peasy, right? I will show your photo on my blog with a link back to yours! Even if you don't have a blog - send me your photos, I still want to see how and where you put your vintage find to work!

This is going to be fun, so I hope I get good feedback on this. I just love sharing the love of all things vintage! 

(I will have a little blog button ready for your sidebar, too!)

So get those photos to me, girls! I can't wait to showcase your creativity!




 And now to announce the winners of the Sarah Jane Studios giveaway!
