oh, wow. lovely lovely lovely. (giveaway)

hello lovelies! here is the giveaway i've decided to do to say thank you for reaching over 100 followers!
firstly, i'd just like to say thank you to all of you who do follow me, as much as this blog is just a place for me to collect my thoughts it really means a lot that people care about the things i write and the pictures i take. it's really lovely, and you are all lovely lovely lovely! (i've been watching skins series 1 & 2 back to back, a little obvious isn't it?)
i have been making some little knitted collars recently to put in my shop, and i thought one of these would be the perfect thing to give away! they are quite sweet, and i'm really pretty proud of them.
they are kind of marie antoinette/meadham kirchhoff inspired, and are basically a result of some experimenting i did for my last textiles project (which i will blog about soon!).
the collars are quite delicate and girly looking. they could add a lovely detail to a plain tshirt or a bit of quirkyness to a simple dress, or could even be worn just in place of a necklace.
the colours i have here are grey, lilac and a gorgeous peachy pink. i found these in a local wool shop, they are for making cute little baby clothes & therefore come in lots of lovely pastel shades. the wool is very soft and has a pretty ivory coloured silk line running through it. when i put these up in my shop i will probably do them in a few more colours, but for now you can choose between these three! (:
okay, so. here are the giveaway ~rules (so to speak)!
- you must be a follower of this blog to enter
- if you would like to enter, please leave a comment on this post with your email address so that i can contact you if you win, and please also say which colour wool you would like your collar to be made from; pink, lilac or grey.
- you can have an extra entry if you tweet about the giveaway, or mention it in a blog post! remember to tweet me (@vintagedaarling) if you do, or leave a link in your comment.
the giveaway will end on the 29th of february (because i love leap years) at 6pm (GMT). i will then pick a name out of a hat & contact the winner to ask for their address. good luck guys! (:
