Give-it-away, give-it-away, give-it-away-now | Fairbanks Photog

I don't know if you want the back-story or not (if not, just skip to the giveaway part of this post ;) ), but I thought I'd share a bit of the behind-the-scenes just so you could see how great & from-the-heart this giveaway truly is. A few weeks ago (at the end of October, to be exact) I got a blog comment from Ms. Jen B. over there, impressed by my butter-making attempts ;) with a quick mention of the vintage hair clips she's been making. Well I had no idea about any of this! Clearly Jen is talented & gifted, but I didn't know she was crafty too! So she sent me some pics to show me & a visual link to get me started. Barely a day goes by and Jen writes to tell me she's making some & will send one my way. Needless to say, her thoughtfulness & generosity were very unexpected. I just kept thinking, wow, she wants to make some extra to send to me?! Really?! A short time after that, I received an unexpected package in the mail with not one, but three vintage flower clips, along with a beautiful note that made me laugh (I didn't tell you that part, Jen! ;) ). She is truly someone who gives from the heart, no questions asked. And me, well, I was just so delighted & thrilled that I wanted to share some of this loveliness with you! So, without further ado, a giveaway from both of us to you just in time for Thanksgiving! Thanks for being a part of our lives, thanks for being a part of our blogs, thanks for leaving comments and thanks for being there!

We're giving away (3) sets of two vintage clips and a fourth $5 coffee gift card courtesy of Caribou Coffee. Winners will be announced Thanksgiving morning! All just to say ... thanks! (And thanks to Jen for being such a great friend!)


Turns out Jen & I both have hair that gets a little crazy out of control - who knew it, but a vintage hair clip is just the ticket! And the coffee card? Well, it's -27 below here ... a warm cup of coffee or cocoa is definitely in order.

And to get you even further into the mood of the holiday season ... some announcements and a HUGE holiday giveaway are just around the corner!

Alright, comments are open ... let the fun begin!
