100th Post!! GIVEAWAY!!



I'm sorry that I have been gone for so long. I have been trying to decide what I want to do for The Vintage Moth's 100th Post! A very big deal here in Bloglandia and not to be taken lightly! :)

Sooo.... in traditional blog style I have decided to have a giveaway just for those who stop by. I will be passing along some antique papers, pages or this and that. The real ones!

Here is the nitty gritty:

1.)this contest is only for those who happen to visit. Please don't spread the word. Besides, the fewer who enter the more likely you are to win! ;)

2.)This giveaway is open to anyone, from anywhere in the world. I get the biggest kick out seeing where people come from so the further away the better!

3.)Leave a comment on this post let me know what type of images are your favorite.

4.)You can enter only once, up until February 20th. (My birthday.. it's always better to give than receive!)

5.)That's it!

Now.. on to the prize..




The originals of the above pages, some original antique ledger pages and whatever I find in my collection that suites the person who wins! You'll love it!
Oh, you're looking for the days free images aren't you? Here those are...

Karen said...

I LOVE the vintage bird and bird-related prints (like nests and eggs). In fact, I found (and subscribed) to this site just about the time I had finished remodeling my bathroom and was looking for a couple of wall hangings. Guess where I found them! I printed them on the color printer at work (sh-h-h)-- a vintage thrush image and a nest image -- and put them in matted espresso frames. They really do look great...I wish you could see.

themagickbox said...

*Birgit* said...

Oh, wow -- what a wonderful giveaway! :) Personally, I especially like vintage photos. When I use the photos in my digital artwork, I usually give the people a background story. :) However, I also like the odds and pieces -- pictures of plants, keys and the like. They help making a collage more interesting. What I like best about your fabulous blog is the variety of images. Your hard work and dedication shines through -- and that makes it extra special. Before I forget -- Happy Birthday! :)
