Give Away: Cool Can Constellation Lantern

Deadline is March 12th 2012 (midnight)

To win this handmade lantern, all you have to do is comment on this post. Please limit yourself to one comment per e-mail address. (Click the comment button below the post title.)

This is one of the lanterns I made; it has the constellation Hercules on one side and Orion on the other. I came up with this idea after experimenting with luminaries made with patterns of holes that allow light to spill out. I thought that if I made them with constellations; my kids would want to learn them and they would have an easier time doing it. Plus they’re so neat. It’s working.

Good Luck!

Vintage Gurley Turkey Candles

Vintage Gurley Turkey Candles 2

These Gurley turkey candles can be yours just in time for Thanksgiving. They came from a friend; they had belonged to her mother. I thought they were pretty nifty.

The price of the candles, as marked on the bottoms, is: 29 cents and 35 cents. The turkey on the left has some wax missing near the base. The wicks are unused.

These kinds of novelty candles are popular again.

Vintage Gurley Witch Candle

I’m throwing in a vintage Gurley witch candle. It would be nice displayed with other vintage Halloween items. She (the witch) has a gouge of wax removed from her chin area and other flaws you can see in the photo. Still pretty cool. Price on the bottom says 29cents. It must be pretty old.

To win these candles all you have to do is comment on this post. The limit is one comment per day per person.

I’ll randomly pick a winner on November 16th. (That’s only two weeks!)

I’ll e-mail the winner.

Could be yours for only a few dollars shipping.

It should be noted that I don’t make any money: it’s just for fun.

Give Away: Vintage Arnel’s Mushroom Cookie Jar

Arnel's mushroom cookie jar
This super cool mushroom cookie jar (think 1970′s) is looking for a good home. I found it at a local second-hand store and cleaned it up. I have a feeling it has been in someone’s kitchen for a long time. It has a few minor chips around the opening but otherwise is in great condition. The bottom of the jar says Arnel’s; it‘s a collector’s item.
It would be great to store cookies obviously but would also be nice to store craft supplies in your craft room.
Doesn’t it just make you smile?
To win this cookie Jar all you have to do is comment on this post. I’m thinking that I should limit one comment per day per person.
