I'm ballsdeep in wretched moving boxes, but thankfully they're getting emptied rather than filled up. We have moved to a wonderful neighbourhood, with darling friendly people everywhere! I've found my favourite coffee shop, and my local markets. Doggie Darling and I have explored the doggie parks in the 'hood too!
BUT! Sitting around here at my new home, I thought how wonderful would it be to have 200 followers on this blog, so what about a GIVEAWAY?! But how should I do the giveaway, I wonder?
I'm just hanging in my 1970s kitchen. Getting ready to amp up the kitsch. Kitch VS Kitsch!
Pincurls work in Melbourne - Yay! (For some reason, I worried the water would be different and it'd be the wrong kind of water for pincurls! Worry Wart anyone?) Um, I did say 1970s kitsch right? Wood panelling everywhere! And wooden beams as well, in case you didn't have enough wood.
This is my 1970s dining room/mini lounge room, brickwork for you Oonaballoona! FUNNY, but at least the brick breaks up the wood right?
Doggie Darling says hi! So perhaps perhaps perhaps... Perhaps, I'll run my giveaway suchly:
I'll make a garment for you. Yep, I'll make a garment, of your choosing, for you, if you are the winner of my 'Yay for Melbourne' Giveaway! 'Yay for Melbourne' because I'm happy to be moved, happy to be in M-Town, and will be able to show you how great Melbourne is now that I'm here! So you'll be also saying 'Yay for Melbourne' soon too!
So, if you leave a post here saying what kind of garment you'd be keen on... and remembering that I do make a lot of things from vintage patterns or stretch tshirt tops (not trying to hinder your garment choices, but perhaps play to my strengths!)... BUT, leave a post here and then I'll do a random 'drawn out of the hat' type thing. Timewise, you've got until my sewing room is set up, which at this stage could be 2 weeks. Your prize will also be the first thing I'll sew in the new sewing room too! Yayz!
So get your thinking cap on, or search my archives, and leave your comment about your desired garment below. AND, if you like facebook or twitter, you can become my friend IRL, or 'like' my veronica darling page, or hashtag #yayformelbourne and follow me on twitter (or here on the blog) and each thing counts as an extra entry to the giveaway. So if you leave a comment, follow me on twitter, become my friend on facey, and 'like' my fanpage, that's FOUR freaking entries friends! Sounds great if you love a wiggle dress! Or perhaps a great versatile tshirt dress?
Talk soon! xoxo
*** And YEP, this is open to international peeps as well, I don't mind where you live, I love everywhere!
