great memoral day give-away™

the weather
was glorious...
and hot
this weekend.
summer,
aka humidity,
has arrived
in dc.
i wanted to lay
out
on cool grass
all day
here
or
here.
watch caterpillars
like
this
or
this
looking at caterpillars
makes me
happy,
i know
it's not
for everyone.


as with all
long weekends,
i did not get
all the things
i wanted to
get accomplished...
but it was fun
just the same.

i am posting late
so i will get right to
today's give-away™
and get to all
the adventures
tomorrow.

so here are my
give-aways™
for today...

for guidelines
and other monday give-aways!

the great monday give-away™:

1. vintage red Sears suitcase taken!

since i bought
another red suitcase
this past friday,
i need to pass this one
on to you...
it has
a nice clean
lovely paisley interior,
a spectacular red color!
it is 14" high

it is great
for stylish
storage
in your home.

*jumps up and down*

This is such a great idea; if I run out of irl folks to gift my finds to, I'll have to add this feature to my blog.

I'm so excited! Lime green totally goes with the other nifty needle and hook containers that are collecting on the bookshelves. :-)

Let's chat about shipping:

That blue suitcase is pretty... but I have no space for it in my apartment.

In fact, I'm doing my own give-away this week, inspired by yours. I think there will be more in my future as well.

And I posted a photo of me with a goofy grin wearing the skirt I got from you a few give-aways ago! Thanks again.

Why is that we think we can accomplish about 2 weeks worth of things at the beginning of a 3 day weekend. Then, when the weekend is over we feel as if we've done NOTHING! Glad it isn't just me.

lomester said...

Oohh.. is the gray suitcase with pink lining still available? I think it is adorable

Jay said...

You are the most amazing photographer I know!? Have you contacted Sir David Attenborough and asked him if he would like to take you on his next documentary!? You should - you have a definite career there (either that or as a personal shopper!).

Jennifer said...

I'll take that blue suitcase, if it's still available!

gishygoo said...

This is Jennifer, posted above. Thanks! Your blog is amazing and I love the poetic way that you write!

hey there. i'm not so good at the blogging i spose, but i've been lurking some. why don't you let me try that dress on? if it doesn't fit, i'll most certainly pass it on. green is one of my new favorite colors.

miss you lots. i go on vacation next week, i'll email you pictures.
