Spring Cleaning & a Giveaway!

I went through my shop and reorganized and took out some things that have been there for awhile. I put in new sections, added a few new items, and swept out the corners! Funny, but it feels as if I have actually done some real spring cleaning! You know that sense of feeling clean and organized? Maybe I am spending too much time in the virtual world of my computer? Oh well. I'll take a feeling of accomplishment any way I get it these days.

As a result of all my organizing, cleaning out and rearranging, I have discovered several items that I thought might work well for giveaways! Today seems like a good day to start something new AND I met my goal of having my 40th sale!  So, I am going to have my first giveaway!  I am so excited! I think you are really going to like these.

Here are some pictures to entice you to enter...






The winner gets this sweet set of robin's egg blue cups and saucers that I put together.  The saucers are from a different manufacturer than the cups.  The cups have no markings but measure 4"across the mouth and the saucers are 6.5".  This is a gorgeous set for coffee or tea!  I hope you like it too!

 To enter this giveaway:

1. You Must Sign up to be a follower (if you are already a follower leave a comment so I know you are   interested.)
2.  Leave a comment
3.  Visit my Etsy shop and tell me your favorite item http://www.mylifeinstages.com/

If you do all 3 you will have THREE entries and triple your chances of winning!



Winner will be selected randomly on June 1st and posted here.  So be sure to check back and see if the winner is YOU!

Love the blue cups and plates. My mother had a set of dishes very similar to the plates over 50 years ago. They were really "modern" then!

Tracie,
This cup and saucer set is so cute! I'm already a follower.
Thanks again for the Sunshine Award!


In your shop, I love the cranberry glass dishes and the chalkboard bottles. If I have to choose a single favorite, it would have to be the cowboy boot mug! Love it!

Hi, Tracie! I think "sweet" is a perfect way to describe the cups and saucers. They look like they belong together and I never would have guessed they had different mates to start out with! Good luck with the contest!

Saw your post on the etsy forums about "how to get blog followers". I like your blog and I'm now following it, hope you will help me get more followers too. :)

Think Blogger was having a problem as most of the blogs I visited did not have their followers buttons, it was shut out for some reason. Glad I came back because it's there now.

Almost Precious said...

Hi just got back from visiting your shop. It's lovely and I gave it my ♥ :)

I really love the ceramic rooster
