Springtime and Time for a Giveaway!

After posting all last week about the Bachman's Idea House,  I took a little break and spent the last several days outside gardening!  We've had a very early spring this year and I've been able to do some spring clean-up and start a few new gardens!  Our apple trees, cherry tree, and lilacs are blossoming now and the yard smells wonderful!

I'll be writing about some of my gardening later~ but while I was away from posting I reached 100 followers!  I am so glad to have you as blog friends and for all your wonderful and supportive comments!  I have decided to have a "100 Followers Giveaway"!  I have put together a fun variety of itsy bits and pieces that I hope you will enjoy!  Here's what's included~
A 1901 French Grammar book
some miniature starfish
a cute ceramic dog
an old ornate silverplate spoon, engraved "Ida"

Some vintage bingo cards and wood bingo balls

Some vintage photos
a dairy tag
a bottle with cork, full of vintage cardboard anagrams and game letters

Some vintage penny fortunes
an old 6" ruler
a 1926 pinback button
some wood lotto numbers

Two vintage seed boxes
three little cupcake topper cherubs
some vintage postcards
lotto card

And a few other surprises!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post.   If you are a follower, let me know and I'll enter you a second time, and if you mention this on your blog or sidebar let me know, and you will get a third entry.  This giveaway will end at 10 PM CST May 5th, and the winner will be announced on May 6th.  Thank you all for making this so much fun for me!
