Vintage Pink Cake Carrier Giveaway!

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!!
I am having a celebration today. I finally hit 50 followers, whoohoo!! The gorgeous gal pictured below became #50. She is my Darling Daughter, Holly. She was logged into her blog on my computer and clicked to become my 50th follower and my blog recorded it as me following myself, sheesh!! But, since I KNOW I have 50 followers, I am celebrating by having a drawing to give away the pink vintage cake carrier so many of you admired last week. I wanted to celebrate YOU!! Thank you so much for becoming my friends and adding so much to my life!!

SOOoooooo, to be in the drawing, this is what you need to do:
First, for one chance....answer these questions
1.) What are your favorite things to shop for on ebay and Etsy? (gifts, signs, home decor, jewelry, original artsy items, etc...)
2.) What is your favorite theme? (chickens, cherries, birds, etc.....)
3.) What is your favorite style? ( farm house, shabby cottage, Victorian etc...)

LillySue, Congratulations on your 50th follower. What an amazing giveaway...that cake carrier is divine! I posted that beauty on my blog.
To answer your questions:
When I visit ebay (too often) I'm looking for vintage jewelry, linens, doilies, dishes, etc.
My favorite theme is roses, I love shabby cottage, and my fave colors are PINK, robin's egg blue, aqua, and light green.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Lord Love a Duck! I adore your cake plate and would love to give it a nice home. I'm decorating my kitchen in pink, gree/aqua and white so it would fit right in. When I visit ebay and etsy I'm normally looking for home decor and kitcheny stuff that fits into my collections of white ironstone, English/Bavarian tea cups, creamers, tea pots, doilies, linens. Price is a big factor for me, especially on shipping where I think many are unreasonable. My favorite theme is roses and I'm a shabby cottage-fleamarket decorator all the way. My favorite colors in my home are pink, white, aqua, sage green, robin's egg blue. Can't wait to see your Etsy shop and I know you'll be an awesome Etsy gal. ♥

ooglebloops said...

Congrats on your 50th - I'm still not there yet!!!!
1-vintage bib aprons and kitchenalia
2- each room has a different theme, but the common denominator is horses!
3-cottage blended with whatever strikes me
4-sage green, earth tones. My guest room is pink and brown, with lots of vintage pink accessories

I will mention this on my blog (not that I want any more competition!! LOL
Good luck to all !

Beansieleigh said...

My favorite themes are farmyard, amish, birds, and roses. I have never been on/to Ebay, to be honest. I have always been shy to shop online, but times as they are, sometimes I think I SHOULD!.. If I was shopping on Ebay, I would most likely be looking for home decor, or jewelry. My favorite colors are ALL of them!.. I never could figure out an absolute favorite! I will tell you that I get frustrated that peach seems to be very difficult to find anymore. My favorite style of decorating?.. I would say country/shabby cottage. One thing's certain, my daughter makes fun at how I don't like "empty spaces"!! (0;

vickie said...

Oh Congrats to you and Happy Pink Saturday. What a wonderful giveaway.
Let's see, home decor, roses,shabby,cottage,pink, red and
shades of green and blue!

Elyse said...

hi lillysue, i just found your blog through debi.

i opened an etsy shop in december and totally enjoy it. now i will answer your questions.

1.) What are your favorite things to shop for on ebay and Etsy?
i like to look for shabby-cottage items, usually things that are small and uncommon. the customer service from sellers is always exceptional.

2.) What is your favorite theme? i am not so into themes but i guess i'd say roses or small floral prints.

3.) What is your favorite style?
cottage, beach, shabby, romantic

4.) What are your favorite colors? i love pale colors - pinks, blues, aquas, greens, yellows ...

i hope that helps. oh - one more etsy tip. i find that keeping what i sell small is nice because shipping can be a real factor and i try to keep all costs low.

happy weekend!

Holly said...

Hi, Lilysue, I'm Holly! ♥

How sweet of you to give away your cake holder! You did a great job on it. If I win, I'll put it in my craft room which is done in pastels.

It's really thoughtful of you to want to sell something that we would all like!

1. Due to a limited budget, I don't get to shop on Etsy too often so I tend to go for the $10.00 and under items- whatever they might be! I guess I've bought mostly hand crafted original items.

2. Themes: Flowers of any type.

3. style: I have all styles mixed together in my home! I'm still trying to come up with a name for it! Let's see... country, beachy, kitchy, cottage chic. How's that? ☺

4. Colors: I *love* all pastel colors but my kitchen is bright red and yellow and my living room has dark blues. Again- I have a mixture!

I will do a post about your give away and I hope you can come visit me sometime!
