ƸӜƷ Belated Butterflies Giveaway ƸӜƷ

Please Note: This giveaway is now closed!

Two lucky Favourite Vintage Finds readers will win one of these sweet vintage 40's butterfly pendants! I promised I'd give away one of these little sweeties ages ago, and I'm giving away another one to celebrate my 2 year blogoversary which took place on the 7th of this month. Thank you so much my dears for your visits, comments, and friendship! :)

These pendants feature a natural garnet gemstone and measure 1.2 cm across (half and inch). They are silver-gilt (sterling silver coated with a fine layer of gold) and bear the 925 (sterling silver) stamp on the back. I purchased a job lot of 16 of these pendants and they set my heart aflutter. Originally sourced in England, they were stored away for decades by their previous owner, and are one of my all time favourite vintage finds.

This giveaway is open to readers worldwide and ends on August 30 2011 at 4.30 pm AEST. The winners will be drawn using a random number generator and notified on August 30 2011 by 9 pm AEST.

To Enter
, simply do these 2 things:

1. Leave a comment on this post. One entry per person.

2. Leave a link in your comment to your blog, profile, or website where I can contact you if you are a winner. Or leave your email address.

  29. I love these necklaces! Butterflies have always been one of the most interesting creatures to me. I am amazed how they start out as slow-moving, ground-dwelling catepillers and turn into brilliantly-colored, flying butterflies.

If I could, I would give this to her to keep her Mom always close to her heart.
