Edited to add-Contest closed. Dandelionmom won.
This week I am going to try a give away. Again. I don't get overwhelming responses to my giveaways and there is a lady in OK who would say that giving you my address might be risky because one of my cleaning stategies is to box up stuff and send it places. I am crazy like that. So let's see if anyone wants this treasure of mine, because it is time for me to give it away.
I am looking for a new home for these salt and pepper shakers. They can't be used for the original purpose because they are pewter and pewter contains lead and if you use them you will be lead poisoning your family. Which is not a nice thing to do. So don't. I never used them and they didn't come from my own family.
I bought them one time about 40 years ago when I was out antiquing with my girlfriends. Those girls were wild about antiques. I liked to look, but I couldn't really see the point in buying antiques. But that day I bought these salt and pepper shakers. The little label says they were used in the late 1800s. I have looked them up and they aren't worth much. I may have paid $3 for them and I might optimistically get $10 for them today, but why sell when I can give them away?
And this is how I will choose. If I have more than twenty entries, I will use the random number generator. If I don't, I will draw out of a hat. I will announce the winner next Tuesday with my next Tuesday, May 11th. I will close the contest on Sunday evening May 9th. If you have a blog, just leave a comment as the blogger and I will find you. If you don't have a blog, you can still enter. If one of you nonbloggers win, I will announce your winning on the blog and you will have until June 1st to email me. After that, if I don't hear from you, I will draw again. Of course, if you win you have to give me your address. And I will send these anywhere in the world that will let me.
And if I don't get at least one entry, then I will never do a drawing again. So, leave a comment if you would like these "treasured" non-salt and non-pepper shakers.
