additions and adjustments.

first off, there are some new goodies in my shop, now waiting for loving heads & whimsical hearts.

i hope this ending of summer has been most delightful to you all, it seemed August came and went with a brief warm breeze (and a swarm of mosquitoes) and tomorrow is already September; a month i have a special fancy for, if i do say so myself.  tomorrow my daughter will return begrudgingly to high school, and i will follow with my own classes i’m not prepared to start the following week. sigh, sigh.

however, we are so close to October now! the month of magic and ghosties, spooky things and bewitchery! hurrah for the coming fall! ♥

Deep in the Woods Enchanted Giveaway!

yes, that is indeed correct. i’m feeling footloose and fancy-free and all that; ready to make a few of you readers lucky winners. :) in this giveaway, there will be three wonderful winners who will receive one of the following..

1) A  pair of adorable handmade woodland barrettes! Each bear leaves & bendable little seedling sprigs. They have a pretty vintage brown button in the center, &  floral-patterned vintage ribbon at the base. These are slender, simple-sliding barrettes for easy placement in your hair.

2) A Magical vial, no. 777, for luck! An enchanting vial of flora & herbs, & these earthly offerings attract luck luck & more luck to the wearer with their own individual distinctions;
• Sage guards against evil and makes wishes come true, and brings prosperity.
• Star Anise has been used for centuries as a powerful luck-attractor.
• Yarrow brings luck and banishes ill-feelings.
• Periwinkle promotes luck and good fortune to it’s wearer.
(All of these are found fresh within this vial.)

3) The Little Brown Bear (inside a glass terrarium)!  The bottom of the terrarium is densely filled with real reindeer moss, along with a very red toadstool. A little glass vintage bear forages amidst the greens, looking for some insect snacks. I love these little terrariums because you can put them almost anywhere (a workplace is nice when you can’t lug in a big ol’ plant but you’d like to view something green and foresty) or anywhere else that needs a touch of nature.

(a close-up of the super-cute toadstool..)

All you have to do is simply leave a comment (and be sure to leave an email address or other form of contact)! i will use a fun random internet number generator on Friday, June 18th –closing day for entries- and will post you three lucky winners on that day as well.

Your winning will go to you straight away- with a few extra odd bits o’ fun as well!  ^_^
