First Day Of Spring Giveaway


Seems like spring hasn't realized it's arrived here in the Pacific Northwest.  The past three weeks Mother Nature has given us a light dusting of snow on Sundays and Mondays, strange.  The last two days have been filled with rain.  Don't get me wrong, I love the rain, just expected something different on the First Day of Spring.  Anywho, as I sat here milling about the net, looking at my expired listings on Etsy, I thought, hmmm, rather than to relist the following item I decided to do a giveaway.  So many people favored this item from my shop and therefore I figured would be a nice prize.  Here I have this...


Lovely White Bone China Owl Figurine


It is approximately 6" tall


and 4" in diameter at the base.


Made in Taiwan so I'm dating it to the 60's or 70's

To enter this giveaway, all one has to do is post a comment telling me which item they favorite from any of the 5 shops listed in my weekly sideline featurette or either of my two etsy shops NeverTooOld or Vintagicity.  One entry per person.  

This giveaway will begin today March 20, 2012 and end on Saturday March 31, 2012 at midnight EDT.  The winner will be announced in a new post on April 1, 2012 (no jokes, really!! lol).  This giveaway is open to U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand residents.

I hope you enter, I wish you luck, and as always, Thanks for stopping by!!

Oh, I almost forgot! My favorite item is the matching pair of wicker side tables, but I also love the Mattel Perfect Sew toy sewing machine:)

Hi Jenny,
I've had alot of inquiries on the wicker tables, one even asked about shipping to Australia! Thanks for stopping by and now I gotta go get some shots of the snow storm we're having. It's spring right? lol.

My favorite is also the owl! My family has Irish roots and the owl is the symbol of wisdom and patience in celtic traditions- Having my owl collection on display serves not only as decoration (they are so cute!) but also a reminder of what they symbolize!

Thanks for letting me know about the giveway!

Jillian said...

Thanks for the heads up on the giveaway! My favorite item is the owl itself. Its so clean and simple. My twin sister's favorite animal are owls and it makes me think of her, we are currently living 700miles apart so its kinda rough. Love the items, keep up the good work!! and sorry to hear about all the snow, what a bummer nature can be sometimes.

Hi Bonnie,
I'm so surprised the Normandy set has not sold? Too high priced? Perhaps I should consider a giveaway?? hehe, you never know with me. Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you the best of luck on the "Snow" owl!

I Favorited the vintage bone china owl, I adore owls. It's a beautiful piece and would love to add something like that to my collection. He would fit perfectly with my milk glasses.

So fun of you to do a giveaway! I hope it "springs" some interest for your shop. I have to say the owl is my favorite for sure, I love it's simple charm. Have fun with this crazy spring weather. We're looking forward to lots of green here in California as each day seems to bring a mix of rain and sunshine.

NeverTooOld said...

Hi Stuff, Thanks for stopping by and entering the giveaway! Yes, I've seen/heard you guys been in the rain over the past month. Awesome as it should turn those brown foothills green green!! Have a great weekend and I'll be posting the winner on Sunday April 1st (no jokes, lol).
