It's First Give-away Time!

Hi all,
Okay, I have decided to have the first "Give-away" on my blog.  I will start with smaller items for doll making and as the followers grow so will the value of the prize!

The first give-away is for some fantastic Antique Lace.  It will be for 3 yds of 3 different antique laces.  Some of them are French. They are valued at $4.00 - $6.00 per yard (if you can even find any for sale). That is a total value of $42.00 in lace, not bad for a first time give away.  They are very fine cotton. This should be enough to create a lovely doll or more.  Rules below.

First:  You need to make sure you are a follower on my blog (click "follow" if you haven't already).
Secondly: You just need to comment on this post telling me that you are indeed interested in being in the contest, and what your miniature interests are and what you would do with the lace if you won!  That's it.  You only need to comment once and I will take all of the names of the entrants and have someone in my family pull the lucky winners name! 

The Contest will close the end of next week at 9:00 pm Pacific time!  Good luck everyone and don't forget to tell your friends!
