Blogiversary Giveaway: Or a Very Happy UnBirthday to You!

Hey Nerds! The Vintage Spinster blog is officially one year old today! I cannot believe one year has gone by since I started posting the random crap I buy at thrift stores on the Internet. Who knew this could grow into such a fun, happy little place for me to share part of my life?

First off, I have some folks to thank before the music starts to swell and I get played off. Thank you to every reader who has stopped in to have a look. Even the ones who found me by accident by searching for Roseanne's afghan or giant forks and spoons. I have to give a shout out to Sophie of Her Library Adventures and Selena from Apron Thift Girl for hosting their weekly Thrift Shares. And Sir Thrift A Lot for the latest and greatest Thrift Share: WTF Tuesdays! Thank you to my top independent site referrals: Mr. Modtomic, Mid2Mod, The Yard Sale Snoop, and Grunge Queen. I'd especially like to thank Dana at Mid2Mod and Mr. Modtomic who I feel a special kinship with since we all started our blogs within months of each other, it's nice to be in such great company.

Now on to what you really came for: my first giveaway! The theme is Woodland Vintage Kistch'n. Let's have a look at the prizes, shall we?

Oooooh. Ahhhh.
Your very own copy of my favorite Vintage cookbook,
The Betty Crocker Cooking Calendar.
A Pyrex 500ml Serve and Store with lid
in the Woodland pattern.
Mushroom Salt and Pepper shakers.
This Owl was covered in kitchen grease
when I bought him. I cleaned him up and now
he wants to develop a new layer of grease
in YOUR kitchen!
