Before the sewing machine died on me, I was able to get a few items made, so tonight I am sharing with you all the items that I was working on this past Memorial Day weekend while staying out of the humidity...too hot even for the dock....
The doll on the left is wearing a vintage doll dress that I found on our recent buying trip.
This doll in the middle sporting her star spangled dress even looks cute hanging on the wall with her freshly picked mini strawberry inside her flag pouch.
Last but not least, this stump doll holding her sprig of tiny white flowers with her flag waving proudly.
My camera is acting up, but these peppermint sticks are made from Liberty Candy with a picture of our founding father George Washington on each wrapper.
So while I was writing this post, I decided to have another giveaway...yes folks you heard me right...but don't tell Bob about this new giveaway...it's our little secret ok.
For every one of my followers who can bring over a new follower to my blog, I will give you my pattern FREE to make these peppermint sticks for yourself, including my secret to aging the paper. You must make a comment on this post giving me the name of the new follower you brought over, send me an email with the name of your new follower to email@example.com and then I will send you the pattern. It's that easy. New followers can also do the same if they bring someone over. This will be open until June 17th, which will give everyone enough time to make these peppermint sticks to enjoy before July 4th....and the good thing about these candy sticks is that they have zero calories!
One more thing...every person who just wants to leave a comment on this post without bringing a new follower over, will be entered into a drawing to be also held the night of June 17th. The winner of this drawing will receive 5 peppermint sticks in their choice of black/ white or color wrappers.
FREE PATTERN or CHANCE IN A DRAWING...are you up for the challenge ladies and gent...you decide.
Good luck everyone!
