Grow Your Blog Party Giveaway!!



Well, today is the kick-off of the Grow Your Blog Party, hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.

The idea is to go to that link and cruise thru as many of the blogs listed in the comments as you can manage between now and Feb 1. Consider signing up to follow the ones that blow your skirt up, since that's what this party is all about. Many of us are having a giveaway of some kind. Leaving a comment on those blogs should enter you into their drawing. Or maybe you'll have to become a follower, not sure so check as you go.

Here at One Woman's Hands you need only leave a comment in this post. We'll all draw our winners on February first and announce them on our blogs, so you have a chance to win at more than one blog.

 I sewed a bunch of old lace to one of those dollar postcards from the other day to make a little hanging piece. All the laces are older (some are very old), and the hanger is very fine gauge vintage tatting. Looks like 80 weight crochet thread maybe. Real skinny.

I put a lot of pictures of it here so that you'd be real tempted to leave a comment!



I considered covering the back of the card to conceal the stitching, but decided I liked being able to see the old graphics and left it except for a label with my info.

Thanks for visiting and good luck in the drawing!

Happy blog hopping, Leslie

Here it is hanging amongst other goodies in my studio.
I love the pop of red from the flowers.

  6. I am really enjoying this party! I have been exploring for hours and have not made a dent in the list. I did start on the less than 50 followers, like my blog, because I know how exciting it is for me to see new comments. Your combination of lace and paper is beautiful. I had not thought to combine the two textures in this wonderful way. I have very vintage cards that have been handed down, in combination with laces that have come the same way;, I could redesign my décor!!

  21. Hello Leslie - I am here from 2 Bags Full.

    Your blog is making me want to create, you have such unique and beautiful things here.

    In fact I loved your garden journal so much, I put Mary Ann Moss's class (ticket-to-venice) on my birthday list. I hope mine turns out as nicely as yours.

  24. I loved visiting your blog here especially seeing that you create a little the same as me - i.e. collages with vintage materials, laces and doilies. Love all of your paper experiments too.
    So we both have a lacey collage to give away! You just might like to come and join in my giveaway too and have a look around as I have done here.
    Beautiful blog and I wish you lots of success!
