Give-A-Way to Celebrate 50 Followers...and who was number 50, anyway?

As I have promised, I am having a Give-A-Way to celebrate 50 members.  I have been hunting and searching my stash, the DFW Metroplex, and ...well I guess that is all...for something fabulous to give away.  I wanted something that reflects my personality, the atmosphere of this blog, and something that my readers could use.  I think I have a pretty good collection.

For starters I would like to share a Cookbook from my collection.  I was lucky enough to find TWO more of these Good Housekeeping Cookbooks from 1963 while at Goodwill the other day...I have a few more that are collecting dust on my kitchen cookbook shelf so I decided to share one with a lucky follower.  I will put the other in my Etsy shop, Girlie Girl's Notuions. I do not know if 1963 was a popular year for this book but I like it.  The graphics are cool and the recipes are timeless.

 And to keep you nice and tidy while you are creating the yummy dishes from the recipe book, I am throwing in this ADORABLE apron from my collection.  Look at the flattering vertical lines.  And it is very ample so perfect for those of us with gorgeous curves.
 Isn't the ric rack cute?  There is ric rack detailing on the hem and pockets.  I just love it.

While out and about, searching one of my favorite Antique Malls, I came across this little lipstick holder.  It has a conveinent mirror built in.  Now you have no excuse to go without lipstick.  LOL

I am going treasure hunting later today....IF I get my housework done. 

All you need to do in order to win is be a follower and comment.  That's it.  (I need you to comment so I know you are interested, I know some followers might not be interested in such things.)
To get extra entries, post about this give-a-way on your blog (and let me know...).

I will announce the winner on April 22 in honor of Earth Day.

Good luck!!!!

OH!!!!  I almost forgot.  I wanted to tell y'all about this really cool blog I found.  The owner of the blog also happened to be follower number 50.  I know, those who read my blog, know I have been "doing" eBay for the last month.  I have not made a fortune but I have made a good deal of extra "mad" money...and every little bit helps, right?  Well I would have never taken the plunge or have the confidence to get into eBay if it was not for My Dear Trash.  Laura and Kelly runt he blog and have all kinds of info on reselling what they call "trash"... If you are even thinking about reselling, this is a very inspirational blog.  I hope you check it out!!!!
