How about a French brooch?




Special give away.

Made with old stuff from France, gathered in Toulouse.
A brooch with organza, old lace and ribbons and a vintage pearl.
Sitting on some French text.
I will have a name pulled out of my battered old cap on Sunday 21st Aug.

Might I add that I do like to hear from the winners, if you liked my gift, it gets a bit lonely out here in the pacific.!

Dear Lilla: I just visited your etsy site and love, love, love all your handmade things. I ordered something this evening for my daughter for her birthday. She loves vintage and anything rhinestone. Your work is so authentic vintage it could be straight out of an old suitcase in a french attic! Keep inspiring all who follow you. Nancy

I love your work, and LOVE your videos!! Would love to win something of yours.

Lottie said...

Oh it's just perfect - absolutely beautiful.

It's such a shame that some winners don't take the time to write and thank you - I was rather shocked and saddened by that

You put so much time and effort into you blog, with all your demo's and video, and a little bit of 'you' goes into everything you make and give away.

I don't know how you can bear to part with some of your gorgeous work.

Good luck everyone - and please do not forget to write and say 'Thank you'

Oh, how beautiful, my Aloha friend! You are very artistic and have inspired many!
I lived in Hawaii for 5 years and making "pretties" helped me keep the "lonelies" at bay while my husband was deployed!
What a joy it would be to win one of your treasures!
Blessings, Lilla!
