Robin's Egg Blues ~ Crystal Winter Giveaway CLOSES @ MIDNIGHT, 12/25/09


As the days go by I add a few baubles and trinkets for your Inspiration box.
Most of what you see is brand new, some vintage, some handmade. The glitter kissed card is made by my
sister, Annette.

I just love these giveaways. It really is more fun to give!

I found this Robin's Egg Blue cameo @ Lings Moment .
You may click on their title to get to their website.
They sell DIY supplies for weddings, favours, embellishments, ribbons and so on.
Their prices are reasonable!


Check this sweet faux silver tussie mussie and millinery flowers!
Just a few of the things for your inspiration stash:
1. faux crystal swan
2. handstamped cardstock in light aqua
3. faux silver crowns
4. handpunched fleur de lis
5. handpunched crowns
6. 12" faux crystal chain! wow!
7. 1 teaspoon Martha Stewart tinsel glitter!
8. Handmade glitter kissed card
9. 1 roll of Miss Elizabeth's ivory paper lace.
10. fresh lavender buds in Robin's Egg blue organza pouch!
11. Handmade wire nest with Robin's Egg Blue glass beads!
12. 2 large vintage sheet music.
13. Aqua and ivory buttons.
14. Tiny white and aqua yo yo's.
There is more.... too numerous to mention everything!






Here's how to enter:
1. Leave a comment here for 1 chance.
2. Post REB giveaway on your blog for a second chance.
Use any one of these images in your post.
In your comment let me know how you will use your inspiration loot!
The giveaway will close at midnight Friday and one name will be
drawn Saturday and a post will be made Sunday with the winner.

Thank you to everyone of you who comment and enter.
What the fun is to all this is giving and a connection with people.

The poem/saying goes:

"No man is an island entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a promontory were,
as well as any manner of thy friends
or of thine own were;
any man's death diminshes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee."

by John Donne

Actually this is a prose. This was one of John Donne's devotionals. If I am correct.

Many Blessings,

  13. The little silver tussie mussie and crowns are adorable. I love all the buttons, in such wonderful shades of blue! My daughter, having studied french for 5 years, loves all things Parisian, so she would probably try to snitch the Eifel tower for her scrapabook pages. .

  34. I would put all these gorgeous items on a silver tray as you have and just enjoy the color & textures of each item. Also would put your sister's lovely cards on my inspiration board by my desk. After the holidays, I'm taking on a huge project and redoing my kitchen cabinets from wood finish to this gorgeous blue. It's going to be lots of work, but just seeing my kitchen painted this color will make it worthwhile. Sue in FL

  50. Lovely! Robin's egg blue is a favorite color of mine and your blog is beautiful. I'm coming back.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, what a gorgeous blog and what an exciting give-away! I can see a miriad of uses for what is on the tray: buttons, rhinestones, yo-yos, punches would grace the covers of my large journals, the crown dangles would become bookmarks with other things added, the crystal buttons/beads would be the center of my handmade flowers, the cards would be punched and adorned with seam binding ribbons to use on gifts and the "so much more" would be like opening a Christmas stocking. Too fun.

  100. What a gorgeous giveaway! And all in my favorite color, I am seriously drooling over all these beautiful things. I'm new to your blog as I found out about your giveaway on Dawn's blog (The Feathered Nest) but I immediately bookmarked here and can't wait to explore and get to know you! As for what I would do with the items in the giveaway - I think first off I would just sit and play with each pretty and probably cry to receive such a package. Then I'll probably just enjoy the whole display in my studio for a while and eventually frame the cards, use the yoyo's on a special purse or accessory, and do some crafting with the other goodies. Thank you for such an inspiring giveaway!

  101. Oh, and I have posted your giveaway on my two blogs at http://mamaspocketbook.blogspot.com/ and http://frenchdamask.blogspot.com/ ~ Thank you!

What would I do with my booty if I won, ummm honestly I think I would share it others... it is by far more than enough to do so.

    My goodness, what a beautiful assortment. I'm a beginning CQer and this would be a wonderful way to build my stash - although it is all so beautiful I'd be tempted to devote a whole quilt to it.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway.
