Blog Giveaway!!!!!!


What a fun experience blogging has been these past two years or so! I truly never thought I'd see the day when my little piece of the blog-o-sphere would reach 600 followers, but here we are!! I'd like to thank everyone for the time taken to visit, read, and comment on my blog....and, I'd like to announce a little Blog Giveaway.  The prize is a credit of $60 USD for use in my Etsy shop, Adeline's Attic Vintage.  This credit can be put towards any item in my Etsy shop and will not expire, though it cannot be combined with other offers or redeemed for actual cash.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below, indicating what your favourite shop item is. Please ensure that you leave me some way to contact you in case you win (either make sure your link back to your blog is working or leave me an email addy, etc). I will randomly select the winner on the morning of Monday, April 18th, 2011.  Oh, if you tweet about this giveaway, leave me a second comment indicating you have done so for a second entry!  Good luck and thanks again!!

I'm having a real hard time deciding between ivory playsuit and cherry red ice skating ensamble. I love vintage sportswear at the moment, and the playsuit looks perfect to play tennis in. But I think I still choose the ice skating outfit, it's just TOO cute.

Oh, and the "Sadie at the Strawberry Social" dress is lovely too. :)

N. and M. Ziegfeld said...

Congrats on the 600 followers! Thats great to hear!

Picking a fave is hard, what with all the lovely pieces you have, but I'd say I have to go with either "Midnight on the Rhine" or "Blushing Rose"...I've had a covetous eye on both for a while =P the detail work is just DIVINE!

Ps. What a lovely photo you chose to accompany this post....those ladies put a huge smile on my face this morning!

the snail and the cyclops said...

Congratulations !!
You will always be my very favorite etsy store - so picking just one thing is tricky!

That pale gray, blue floral gown you listed for a quick second has been haunting me! The back detailing!!

But, my runner up would be the Esther's Spring Best dress!

the snail and the cyclops said...

Oh, and I just tweeted at you!

Susan said...

Zohar said...

thank you for hosting this!

Ms.Tips said...

Stephanie said...

Can I just say that my most favorite thing about your etsy shop is the name??!! My great aunt's (and godmother's) name was Adeline. But we called her taunnie (short for tante or auntie in German). She was pretty awesome and so are the vintage items in your shop!!

lyndsey said...

Just started following, and I'm so happy to have found your store. the 1920s 'L'Orangerie a Minuit' Floral Print Sheer Chiffon Dress is stunning.

Brittany_Va-VoomVintage said...

Congrats on your milestone and thank you so much for hosting such a fabulous giveaway! Your shop always has the most amazing things so it was a hard choice but I really love the 30's sunburst peach and plum faux bolero dress- stunning!!

lyndsey said...

. . . and I posted a note on Twitter.

Su said...

Oh, so many choices!! I think though, that your "Dear Dottie" dress is what my heart likes best. It's got the 30s going for it, plus, my mother was a Dottie, so it's a sentimental pick, too.

Congrats on reaching 600!!
Picking one favorite was sooo hard... but my heart was won over completely by the 40s "Country Cutie" dress:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/71689226/1940s-country-cutie-rickrack-ruffle

Emily said...

I adore your shop and everything in it so picking a favourite is difficult, but I think it would have to be this dress: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67119216/1920s30s-heat-and-dust-branch-printed

It's just exquisite. And if it was my size, it would no longer be in the shop for others to admire!

All the best, and congratulations on your success!

Congratulations Miss 603 followers.
Well, being miss indecisive I have found it very hard to pick a favourite, but I do rather like the ‘Triton’s Garden’ playsuit- it’s very near my measurements (waist and hip) but alas I wouldn’t be able to keep it up!!! Hehehe :(
Cheerio Tuppy xxxx

Greta said...

It's so hard to pick just one favorite from your shop, everything is so lovely! I suppose I will pick the "Sadie at the Strawberry Social" though, it's such a fun looking dress!

My favourite frock is Esther's Spring Best... I love the little key hole details in the sleeves, and the vibrant print. I've just been back to swoon but, alas, it's on reserve. So it shalt be the one that got away.

P.S: The photo you've used for this post is so sweet :D

Miss Emmi said...

Your shop always has such beautiful stuff! I really like http://www.etsy.com/listing/64305540/1950s-jonathan-logan-coffee-caramel (since I am always partial to a lovely 50s dress), but if I won I'd probably put the voucher towards getting a lovely 20s/30s dress when and if you get something in my size. Friends and I are going to see the Tutankhamen exhibition dressed as if we were at a party celebrating the original discovery of the tomb. I need something pretty to wear and your shop seems like the place to go!

xoxo, Chloe said...

Congrats! There are so many pretty things in your store but I adore the Wings of the Dove Edwardian dress. It is exquisite!
