Two more days to enter. 
Winner will be chosen Saturday morning.
While I was doing a little craft room cleaning I came across a copy of Rediscovered Treasures.  I love this has lots of fun ideas for repurposing in it.  LOTS of inspiration!!  The reason I know this is because I was just looking through a copy of this book a few nights ago.  That copy is on my nightstand.  This copy is in my craft room.  TWO copies. I don't remember buying one...let alone two of these books!  Some times I wonder about me....this is not the first time I've accidently ended up with two copies of something. 
But no worry....I'll just do what I've done before.  I'll give it away!  

Surely someone out in blog land would love a copy of this book. 
Just take a look at some of these fun ideas!

Along with the book I'll include an assortment of treasures to use in your own creating. 
Just a little bit of this and a little bit of that...

All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post.  Maybe you'd like to make me feel better and share about the duplicate book or magazine you've bought.  Maybe you'd like to tell me what you'd do with one (or more) of these treasures.  Maybe you'd just like to say Hi!!

I'll be choosing the winner of the giveaway sometime on very favorite day of the week!  Until then I'll be taking a little blogging break.  I hope you enter....I hope you win!!

Oh Marie, I am swooning over those precious baby shoes! And the vintage earring/brooch? would certainly be used in the vintage brooch bouquet I am making for my future daughter-in-law! Love it all, and YOU for offering such a sweet giveaway! xox Linda

I don't want to enter the contest, but I always worry about buying duplicate books for the boys. It hasn't happened yet, but it is only a matter of time as the collection grows. :-) That kind of stuff just happens sometimes. At least you're consistent with what you like and the books you would purchase.

I too have bought two of the same book. Tina

The book looks fabulous. I could use so many of the things in the book for my collages. Great inspiration.

My favorite magazine is create and decorate and I hate to miss an issue. A couple months ago when I was checking to see if the new issue was out I picked one up thinking I hadn't gotten it yet. When I got home I discovered I had.

I really like the canning jars with the doilies on them and the tea cup pin cushions.

Ooooo and Ahhhhh....what sweet little goodies in that stash! So many possibilities. That book could be just what I need to get the old creative juices flowing. Could you throw a little of your talent into the giveaway too? Now that would be a prize! Enjoy your break.

What a generous giveaway!!

That quilt scrap immediately grabbed my eye.

That glass bottle with the cut edges (?) looks just perfect for a single flower!

I haven't heard of that book, but it looks delightful!

I hope you are enjoying your blogging break!

I would love to have that book!!! Yes,it has happened to me before.I bought two copies of gardening for Dummies....I didn't even like the first copy...I gave it away and I forgot and bought a second one.

What a great book, I can see why you have 2 of them :) I've done the same thing myself a time or two. Your giveaway is full of gorgeous things perfect for creating with. I would love to have a chance to win such a great stash of goodies. I'm so glad I found your blog through Pinterest, I'll be visiting regularly. Have a great day.

What a wonderful giveaway! I have had the hardest time finding lace for jars and toppers. I have a cute teacup that is begging to be a pincushion and that quilt scrap reminds me of my grandmothers foot stool cover ( which I would do the same, my boys just recently tore mine) and the foot would be a perfect photo prop for my crafts :) what a happy treasure!!

Thank you for the chance to enter :)
