Vintage Giveaway- Have a bit of our home

Yesterday we flung the doors of our home open, sold a mountain of stuff and discovered that I have been in the WRONG job this whole time. I’m not a campaigner! I’m a wheeler dealer, a genuine, bonafide, sell a parachute to a sparrow saleswoman. I even got a fiver for our rubbish bin. (Hey, it was an awesome bin, rescued from a back alley in Soho.)

I thought I’d be sad all day, seeing our much loved treasures flying out the door. But nope, it was exciting! I was just so stoked to see people’s eyes light up at the sight of a stack of old suitcases and a collection of teapots. These were my kind! People who relish digging around a stranger’s home on the hottest day of the year all in the name of thrift.

Some were friends, some were blog readers (*extra special wave*) but most has either wandered in or heard about it somehow. Everyone left with a bursting bag and some hardcores had to come back in a van.

We are one massive step closer to our European Bombaround. Eeep…

For those of you who couldn’t swing by for a slice of the action yesterday I have a little giveaway. This bundle hopefully captures a bit of my love for vintage and craftiness and I wish the winner many cups of tea with milk lovingly poured from this jug while whipping up some magnificent doily numbers!

A vintage scrabble set- you can play it sure, but (*does creepy Little Red Riding Hood wolf voice*) far better to craft with. (I put Scrabble letters on EVERYTHING. Even a lamp.)
Three doilies again, put your cuppa on them if you like, but you also could make a million things like those stunning doily bowls.
Three vintage sewing patterns. I have to say If you are clever enough to make these then you really should do it because, my word, they are wicked- one is like a 1980′s flapper style dress -HELLO. I tend to use my sewing patterns for crafting and wrapping gifts in the coolest way.
And finally, this vintage china jug from one of the sets I collect, Keeling and Co’s Claremont. Oh. It’s so bloody beautiful. You can have it, go on, really. You have it.

Simply leave a comment to enter!

For a second entry please share on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram using the hash tag #lulasticgiveaway and let me know in the comments.

Winner will be drawn at random on our very last day in the house, Wednesday 24th July at 9pm.


Thanks my friends and mucho good luck!

    Im not sure what sort of comment you want left! But I’ll use it as an excuse to boast as I’m ridiculously proud … I had a baby last Sunday. He was born at home ( no time to get to the hospital) with no pain relief at all. It was scary and wonderful and perfect. Just like him.

      My heart goes out to you! My baby was born last week and having a real issue keeping him ( and me!) cool but keep telling myself ‘ atleast I’m not still pregnant!’ . All I can suggest is eating your body weight in ice-cream! (& putting your feet in buckets of cold water. )
      Good luck with baby! :)

    Hello! I have met you a couple of times at the well but you may not remember me as I have been away for a few months this year studying in Canada. I am a student and was just wondering if you had any furniture at all? Sofa/bed/table? Leftover from your weekend sale .. I was working and couldn’t make it. I am about to maybe move into a rented unfurnished place and am on the hunt for a few bits and pieces. Would be paying cash.

    Drop me an email if you do-

    Thanks !
