Our first Give Away.....

We are so happy to bring you this post today!
A few weeks ago Tony and I were talking about how much
fun we are having with this little blog and
how many wonderful blog friends we have meet.
We can't believe we are almost at 100 followers.
Amazing...
You guys are amazing and we enjoy following along with you, too!
We thought it would be nice to give back to you!
Our way of saying thank you for following along
with us!

Every once and awhile you get to read about our fun trips
to the Olde Factory...
We thought it would be fun to share with you something from our booth
and something from my Grandmother Audreys booth!
If you have been following along, you know that my dad and I
make picture frames...
We thought you might enjoy the 14.5x16.5 frame
painted in cream...
holds a 4x6 picture...

This sweet little heart is made with love by my Grandmother Audrey!
There is so much detail in this heart!
Notice the doily and button.
She coffee dyes the gauze, fabric, and doily by hand!

One more announcement....
Some of you know we rent a 12x12 space at the Olde Factory,
but could not think of a name!
So...it has been know as The Little Booth...
Tony was hoping for a name in Italian,
after emailing back and forth with Pattie...
we decided on
Portare Alla Vita
(Bring to Life)
Since we paint or decorate old items and furniture to
 "Bring to Life"
We also thought that it is a name that can grow with us!
Thank you Pattie for you help with translation!



I guess we need to have some rules....

1. Leave a comment to receive one entry.

2. Become a follower or if you are a follower, receive another entry
(let us know in a seperate comment)

3. Post about the give away on your blog and link back to us
counts as another entry
(let us know in a seperate comment)

That gives you the chance to have 3 entries to win!
Woo Hoo!!
The giveaway will continue until Thursday April 1st (no joke)
and the winner will be announced on Friday, April 2, 2010!

Good Luck!!
