1 Year Blogoversary Giveaway


Please Note: This Giveaway is Now Closed!

Tomorrow marks the one year blogoversary of Favourite Vintage Finds, hooray! I love being a part of the blogosphere, and I hugely appreciate your support and kindness dear bloggy friends, thank you! :)

To celebrate my blogoversary, I'm giving away this sweet delicate vintage 40's gold butterfly pendant. Featuring a natural garnet gemstone, this pendant is silver-gilt (sterling silver coated with a fine layer of gold), and bears the 925 (sterling silver) stamp on the back. It measures 1.2 cm across (half an inch). I purchased a job lot of 16 of these pendants and they set my heart aflutter, they are one of my all time favourite vintage finds. Stored away for decades by their previous owner, they were originally sourced in England.

Last year I gave away two of these pendants here and before the end of this year I will give another one away. I will be auctioning some gorgeous original vintage jewellery on ebay soon...stay tuned there will previews here.

A shout-out to Collette for being my very first follower! Collette collects vintage sheet music, beauty books, cookbooks and homemaking manuals, and she is a clever crafter too. A wonderful range of original vintage sewing and craft patterns can be found at her online shop:
