no joke, an april first giveaway

happy april fools today everyone!

i always remember this day, because it's my grandparents wedding anniversary. kinda a strange day to get hitched. it's also a beautiful, sunny day here in brooklyn. i thought i'd kick off spring with a giveaway for TWO! new items in my shop, my Matchbook Stationery and my DIY Message In a Bottle Kit. So there will be two winners.
one winner gets a set of two Matchbook Letters. these are bits and pieces of my favorite papers sewn to flat olive and kraft flats. they come with a matching envelope. remember i shared i was working on something new?

second winner gets a DIY Message In a Bottle Kit, which is a vial with a charm of your choosing, two sheets of nice creme paper and a little cotton bag to gift your letter.

did a great big spring update in the shop listing new items, like vintage stamps, and lots of old favorites, like stars!

just leave a comment to enter. tell me what your most excited about for spring.... i love exploring brooklyn on long bike rides!  can't wait for some adventures.

if you don't have a blogger profile please leave me your email, so i can get in touch with you if you are a winnah.

  17. Spring is the time where I can leave my windows open, let kittycat lay happily in the sunspots, and sniff his good-smelling sunny head when he allows. :-) I also look forward to walks through Cooperstown, tempting antique bookstores, and delicious breezes. I love the warm air on my neck.

  19. I love your new creations Oh yes I do !
    But I really do hate Spring. Oh yes.

    My grandfather died, ages ago, on March 21st. And my grandmother passed away on April 1st. There must be some kind of message ?

    I am looking forward to changing A LOT of things in my life.

  25. Well, in Miami Spring is the last chance we get before the tropical summer of heat and humidity invade.

  28. I love your wares! I've actually just written a post about handkerchiefs, I found yours on Etsy, loved them, followed to your blog, and now I am here! Wonderful, how the internet works.

    I am looking forward to just being able to go wandering about the city without feeling as if I might die of being cold! I'm especially excited to visit Greenwood Cemetery, and, in June, rent a bike at Governor's Island!

    xoxo,

  30. Just found your blog and LOVE IT! your taste, your photos and your links to other interesting things. I'm living the weirdest year with 3 summers and a couple of autumns (going from Northern Hemisphere to South and back to North and back to South within 12 months), so it is like an eternal spring-summer-autumn filled with days outdoors. My fav thing, having breakfasts outdoors, best way to star the day!
