For absolutely no reason (well almost none!) I have decided to have a giveaway. I was going to wait either for my hundredth post or 5000th visitor but I don't think I can. And the following pictures tell you why. The quiet old couple who lived next door have recntly gone into a home. Their family decided to either sell the house or rent it out but naturally that meant clearing out years of life. I thought no-one would be interested in linens so I waited until nearly 9 o'clock before I nipped across. This was just a small selection of what was left - the best bits had already gone. But whose complaining?
Actually it seems rather sad that so many of these items were brand new. The lady must have been a collector of souveneir linens and also of teaspoons (4 huge displays of them) but her children had no appreciation for any of it. I spent $15 and that included a plant for $3. I haven't even shown all that I got. They were willing to sell the teaspoon display cases for $10 and almost throw the spoons in. I am going to use the pillow slips at the back on my own bed but the others are up for grabs if your interested.There are tableclothesand teatowels.
So many items had never even been removed from their original cases or plastic bags. Some even had the prices.
Anyway so that I don't have to find space in my cupboards for all of these I have to decided to give a couple of them away. All you need to do to be in the running is to blog about this as well as leave a comment here (well, you don't have to blog but I would love you to! just a comment will do). If you absolutely love anything specific it wouldn't harm to mention that either. O, and people who don't have blogs can also comment. The more the merrier!
Psst! Forgot to say that the giveaway ends at midnight AEST (Australian time) this Saturday, 25th April.
