|Plywood Prints LOVE by Alexander Girard from All Modern|
If I do not say it enough, let me say it now: I truly, truly appreciate my followers and the community of ideas, support, and group love of things mini. January marks the start of my third year of blogging (you can see my very first post here
), and of course the start of a new year. I am offering a giveaway for all of my followers in acknowledgment of and thanks for your enthusiasm and encouragement!
You are likely aware of the fact that I like to repurpose everyday items in my dollhouses. This inspired the majority of this giveaway -- I offer you a selection of items that I would absolutely use:
The photo shows a stunning vinyl Chilewich placemat (14 x 19"), a set of colorful plastic coasters, a 1:87 Schuco love Bug, magnetic geometric shapes, and two boxes of Re-ment. With the exception of the Re-ment and car, which both come from my collection, the items were purchased at the gift shop at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
in New York City. Some closeups of the freebies:
And here's the individual sets you'll receive from the Re-ment "Bread and Butter" and "I Love Kyoto" sets, which I have used many times! Both sets will come in their original box and sealed packaging, and have only been opened to check the contents.
To enter in the giveaway, you must be a follower, domestic or international. Please leave a comment on this post by midnight (EST) on Saturday, January 15. I will then choose one winner using the Random Integer Generator, and will ship your items off. Have fun and thanks for entering! GIVEAWAY CLOSED
On the topic of love, I wanted to share that one of my photographs was accepted into a juried art show at my local coffee house, Small World Coffee
, in Princeton, NJ! They are having their second annual Love Show, and I entered on a lark on the last day they were accepting submissions. The theme is yes, love, so I set up a very red scene in my AG Minis room box. The photograph they chose is entitled, Love is Color, Color is Love
If you are in or near Princeton on Friday, February 4, please come to the opening reception (8-11 p.m.). There will be work by local artists on view, music, and food, and all the proceeds will go to a wonderful local organization, D&R Greenway Land Trust
. Let me know if you'll be there! And if you cannot attend the opening event, the exhibit will be on view through March 1.
