100th Time Travel Thursday - The French Connection Giveaway


It's time to celebrate!!!
Last night marked the 100th party post for Time Travel Thursday.

And you know what that means—a giveaway is in order!!!   ; )


For this very special occasion, I decided to have
the giveaway follow a French theme...

and 
tie into the time travel theme, as well.

The metal clock face represents time, the vintage wood and metal shoe stretchers, travel.
They are part of the prize.

And all of the treasures in this giveaway—except one—are vintage.
Their past lives provide yet another nod to time travel.


I selected some beadboard from
 the stash in the barn for this gorgeous box.

The beadboard we pulled out of that old Victorian years ago has provided us
with so much character-filled material to work with.

We've created quite a few of these charming boxes
each with its own unique, timeworn patina.

I showed you some of the others in
the post where you caught glimpses of one of my porches.

But, I have to say...
this one is my absolute favorite so far—
making it quite difficult to give up.   ; )


This tiny vintage brass and glass case is
from my private collection.

When I posted about my collection last summer, I only showed you
a few of the different styles I have.

This beauty will go to the winner.


Remember my lovely French book collection?

The winner of this giveaway will receive a trio
of these beautiful Classiques Larousse books


and...
a bunch of fabulously fragrant Provence lavender from
 the gardens of Brambleberry Cottage.

Last, but not least...


one the fabulous "Paris Cafe" tea towels
from All Tea Towels—will be added to the bounty of giveaway loot.

  42. Ok, Liz, I've visited All Tea Towels shop and have appropriately drooled over all that is there. Several really caught my eye, but I chose the Victorian Lemonade Label Tea Towel for both its color and the vintage graphics. However if you asked my hubby, he would probably say I need the one that says "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house"!! LOL
