Blogversary Give Away

Yesterday was my 3 year Blogversary.
We celebrated quietly ay home with a few good friends. 
Hahahaha, heeheehee.
Actually I was too busy clearing out my craft studio so my son can move in when he comes back home in a few weeks. Sadie and I are moving to the second floor and starting over.
No sorrow, the room is bigger, plus we can spill over into the guest room too.
And college boy will have his own entry to come and go without mom laying awake and wondering about the time. 
He will be 24 in a few months for gosh sakes.

I have also been trying to keep up with my space at Ohio Valley Antique Mall.

I have been keeping a summer, vacation, travel kind of vibe for now but I am itching to start throwing in a little fall.
I have also signed up for a space at The Rural Society Fall Show in Mt. Vernon, Ohio and I am beyond excited to start gathering and upcycling and creating for October!
Carrie, of Junque Magnet shared this with me and I took the plunge.

Of course we had to hit the 127 longest yard sale this week as well.
I picked up a few goodies, but most are just for me me me.
I know, selfish.
I will call them blogversary gifts, haha.
Most notable was an Adirondack style white porch swing for $15!
Needs a bit of work but I couldn't buy the lumber to make it for that price.

I have also been playing with Chalk Paint.
Love the different looks you can create.
There is nothing like the glow of a wax finish on furniture.

I would be remiss not to mention the world that has opened to me since I began blogging. I have gotten to know so many lovely people who share the same interests and passions.
I have had the privilege of meeting a few in person and have made some lifelong friendships as a result.
The courage to start my own business was also an offshoot of blogging.
For all of this I will be forever grateful
Thank you.
OK, yeah yeah, blah blah blah, what about that give away you may ask?
Well, I have not chosen everything that will go into your package, but one of my microscope slide soldered necklaces will be a part of the package, as well as some carefully chosen bits of vintage goodness.
How may you win?
Simply "like" Frippery on facebook then leave a comment that you have done so.
The give away closes at midnight on Friday the 12th of August. Good luck!

Your's in gratitude, P.

Pin It!

Happy Blogger Anniversary sweetie...
What did we do before we had our blogs? I can't imagine myself not writing and reading each day. It is my release.

Love the views of your booth at the antique mall. I am SO in love with that potato chip can in the back. Oh my how beautiful that is. Be still my little heart.

Hope you have a gorgeous weekend sweet friend. I don't have a Facebook or I would pop over and say LOVE it. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Your space looks really nice and I love the map table.

I "liked" you.
I went to the Mt. Vernon show in the Spring. I don't live far from there.....well 30 minutes or soon. If you need help or a place to rest your head, let me know.
Your pictures are so clear. So soft looking.
Happy moving around in your home.

Hi Pam!

I already like your blog on FB. Congratulations on 3 years of blogging.

Mt Vernon is near where I live so maybe I'll be able to make it to your fall show.

Have a great weekend! La
