Don't forget that I have a February giveaway...Look on the sidebar and become a follower and leave me a comment that you have done so. For extra point, put my prize on your blog's sidebar for a greater chance of winning....

Okay..I know this is a lot of information, but if you have read the whole post that means you are on your way to winning.

Since today is Valentine's Day, I have a giveaway for that one special person. You are all special to me and unfortunately I can only give this to one person.

This is my Valentine present to a commenter of this post and my past posts and for following the rules of the hop. I figured I will come up with a little prize from me...No crafting stuff this time. Just something to make you more gorgeous!

Lucky winner will receive this from me. I ordered this especially for you as a valentine gift.
To thank you for being here and I hope we can visit each other's blog more often.

Just become a follower and leave me comment and of course, complete the blog hop...
Easy, right?

Once in awhile I will give cosmetics as giveaways...Really, scrapbooking materials/supplies will not keep you looking pretty all the time. Don't get me wrong, we all love Prima, WP, Golden Art Supplies, Tim Holtz, watercolor pencils, etc...But once in awhile we need to think of ourselves and give ourselves some pampering. You deserve it!! I just did! Got myself some make-up and one for you too.
Remember, you are beautiful inside and out..


P.S. winner of the lipgloss set will be announced next week.

Your collections of vintage pins and doileys are wonderful- I too like many collections mine are Coca-cola- Precious Moments-handbags/totes and of course the addiction to collecting pretty papers.

  4. Good Morning Marivic....all of your vintage things are lovely but I really loved the brooches. I don't really collect any one thing but if I had to pick something I love it would be my grand mothers Cameo, I have the earrings and the brooch/necklace...when I was little she would let me wear them playing dress up and now I am the proud owner of them! Have a wonderful day!

  10. OMG... are you kidding? I love Stila... can't believe you ordered that just to give away. You are amazingly generous. I love your vintage jewelry... I started to collect recently so I have much fewer pieces... totally loving yours!

  11. Marivic, we collect a lot of the same items ... and I so enjoyed looking through your stash, and I love the pin-up-board, might have to use that ideas of yours myself. Sometimes I wonder what I am going to do with my collections, though I don't keep adding to them these days, but I do (no doubt like you) enjoy going through them and 'remembering' where each piece came from. If only the pieces could talk and tell a tale of times gone by!

  12. Amazing pics and such a generous giveaway. You have a loving heart.

  13. Thank you for sharing your loves! I enjoy seeing what other people value and collect and often I find that so many of us like similar things. Your collection of rhinestone jewelry makes me recall when I was a teenager how I would shop flea markets and vintage stores for this sort of jewelry. I still have all of the pieces and wear them often!

  14. Hey, Marivic....LOVE how you've photographed your 'loves'...they look gorgeously authentic & vintagey like this.....& what a really nice thought re: the make up prize....if only we could wear all that scrumptious patterned paper, eh???!!!!!!!!!
