Delightful Handwork's Give~Away 2015!

Here it is - the moment you've been waiting for!
(Actually, I'm probably way more excited than anyone else. haha!)
:D
I'll be listing some vintage items in my etsy shop within the month.
As a sort of New Year's resolution I'm getting rid of superfluous junk goodies.
I thought a give~away on ye olde blog would be a great kick-off for that endeavor.
I've made two lots to win in said give~away.
***
Lot 1: The Happy Homemaker
 

 
Included in this group are
a set of darling vintage pot holders in a little hand embroidered "basket".
 

4 vintage handkerchiefs.
1 dresser scarf hand embroidered with a lovely basket of flowers.
This is also a vintage item. It feels like linen & has a few very small holes.

 
2 vintage aprons
1 sensible. (Check out that adorable ric-rac & bias tape design!)
1 not-so-sensible. (Just for looking cute...won't keep you dry or clean at all. But who cares?!)
 

 
Little blue creamer,
aluminum(?) bunny mold (Made in England!),
scotty dog cookie cutter,
& dark brown hair nets.
 

 
Lot 2: The Happy Handworker
(For the seamstress)


This lovely lot includes
1 - 36x39" piece of vintage fabric with a fun bird motif.
This may be a feedsack...but I'm not sure.
Someone had made it into a laundry bag.
I ripped out the side seam back when I bought it,
but did not rip out the casing at the top.
Has a few small holes, but overall very usable fabric.
 
1 vintage cushion cover.
This fabric was a little too tropical for my tastes, but maybe it will suit yours!
 

 
Scraps of vintage baby flannel.
I'm not a quilter so there's really no sense in me keeping this.
Isn't that bunny the cutest thing?!
This fabric is very soft!
 

 
2 vintage magazines:
1 crochet bags pattern book,
1 Delineator magazine from April 1935.
Just look at those wonderful fashion plates!
(I want that polka dot dress!)
1 card of vintage buttons,
& a new repro needle card.
 
4 vintage patterns:
(Clockwise from top left)
 



McCalls 6500 * Size 12 * Bust 30 * 1946
Butterick2124 * Size 16 1/2 * Chest 44 * Couldn't find date
Simplicity 5337 * Size Child 4 * Chest 23 * 1963
Simplicity 4178 * One size * Couldn't find date

  8. Hello Miss Michelle!
    I am brand new to this blog, just like my younger sister Brigid, and it was because happen to know Lilly of Mode de lis like you, and her Mom shared this post on Facebook. I absolutely love you blog, and I am going to enter the giveaway. You can definitely put me down for Lot no. 2. And the post I would like to see more of is Baking. :)

    1. Welcome Jessica! Isn't Lily just astounding? :D So happy you like my blog. :) Yay a fellow baking enthusiast! I've got you down for two chances in Lot 2!

    2. Thank you! I feel like I just walked in for tea with such a lovely greeting! Lilly is indeed a prow when it comes to fabric and patterns! Baking and cooking, at least I will be more so very soon because I hope to amp up my skills this year with the help of a book called, "The No Recipe Cookbook". It has proven to be phenomenal so far, and I would highly suggest it to anyone who doesn't like cooking from books. :)

      Thanks so much!

      In Christ,

  10. I love seeing your knitting projects, because I'm so jealous of your talent. ;-) And I love seeing all the fun, quirky vintage things you find!

    I'd like to be entered in both, please! (although I'm having a hard time making myself not have premature disappointment if I don't win that Delineator catalogue....)

    I follow on Bloglovin', "like" on fb, and shared. :-)

    Thanks for hosting, what a fun idea! I think you need to purge more often. ;-D

  15. Hi I loved all of it especially the Scotty cookie cutter. I just lost my Cairn Terror this past summer at the age of 16 and a half. It reminded me of her. I haven't sewn in awhile as my favorite machine bit the dust. Hubby bought me a new one with instructions that look like a book. I have gotten more in to crocheting again and trying to learn to knit. Someday want to learn to spin wool. MIL gave me two wheels and was supposed to teach me but God called her home way to soon in May. I have bags of raw wool waiting. 2014 was a rough year and I just trust that God knows what he is doing.Just looking at your stuff made me smile and dream.

    1. Hello there, bird lady! Welcome to Delightful Handwork. ^_^ I'm so sorry about your doggie. My cat is getting up there in age I can't abide the thought of losing her. :( I want to try mastering crochet this winter. I know the basics, but not as well as I would wish. I have always wanted to learn to spin too! Some years we're glad to see the end of, aren't we? God indeed DOES know what He's doing. He is the Potter & we are the clay. <3

      Would you like to be entered in my give~away?
