:: Lovely Vintage Giveaway

 Yes... that's right! 
I would like to host a giveaway.

My Lovely Vintage Giveaway includes:

A handmade grocery tote bag!
Sewn using two up-cycled vintage tablecloths.
Imagine walking down your High St with this tote filled with fresh seasonal fruit, yummy cheese and a fresh baguette!

A Great read!
A nice addition to your coffee table book stack!
A small embroidery!
Created by me in my pre-blogging days when embroidery was my vice!....macrame has taken over lately!

A Doily!
I added the letterform to this already lovely example of vintage needlework.
"You may have a nice day" suggest that we have a choice sometimes to make a day count!
From a goodwill wish to a "I'm gonna make this happen"!

Why?...Why not? 
If you haven't already guessed yet? 
 I make alot! now it was time to share some.
Also the book landed on my doorstep, part of a book order and I already have one!

All I ask in return is
Tell me in your comment, how you came upon my little blog?

Did I follow you first? Did you follow a link? Are you a FB liker? Were you just curious as to what an Ouch Flower was?

If after this you would like to be a follower then GREAT, your WELCOME and THANKS.


I will post anywhere and announce the winner Sunday 22nd of July 2012. 
The winner will be picked out of a hat, by a toddler...good luck!


  1. Such a lovely giveaway. Some lucky person is going to be very happy.

  2. A Vintage Giveaway! Awesome! Would love to have the chance to win this lovely set of prizes. I found your lovely blog after you left a comment on my blog - (after a tip off from the man I believe?) Your blog keeps going from strength to strength. A true pleasure to read. xx

  3. Hi there, I came via Pip at Meet me at Mikes, I love what I see and I'll be back for another visit xxxx

    I found you from Pip's Meet me at Mikes and loved finding out what 'ouchflower' means.

  5. I'm really not sure how I came across you. I didn't come from Pip's blog. I may have come from someone like Zigsma. But I'm glad I did because I like the cut of your jib, and your taste is top shelf.

  6. Jeez Pippa, I can't remember how I found ouchflower but I'm glad I did (it could've been via Donna, but then, how did I find her?)
    Your blog has quickly become one of my favourites, I love looking at your creations (macrame and otherwise), German pottery and I dig (did I really say that???) your mid-century vibe.
    Awesome give-away, I hope I win x

  7. Wow! This is one fabulous giveaway Pippa! I know I only 'found' you this year so I'm embarrassed - very embarrassed - to admit that I don't remember how! (I'm sorry!) Knowing me though, it was either (a) because you visited me first, or (b) from someone else's blog roll. Hope that helps because I really REALLY want to win that giveaway!! :)) Kx

  8. You made a lovely comment on my blog, and thus I found your wonderful vintagey place xo

  9. Ooh what a great giveaway (I love the hoop)! I honestly can't remember if you 'found' me or I 'found' you but have been a Bloglovin' follower for a while now. (I just find that's the easiest way for me to keep up to date with the blogs I like.) I don't really use Facebook for blog stuff - too many other internet distractions as it is :-) x

  10. Um, I think I found you via Kylie, she's my main Australian crush! I love the derivation of 'ouch flower', I have a big interest in how children use language. My son used to call sunglasses 'darks' for example.

    Lovely giveaway x

  11. I think I came across your blog on Her Library Adventures - Flea Market Finds. You discover wonderful vintage, but really I'm a fan of your work. Your pottery is stunning! Keep up the blogging!

  12. I found your blog after a google search and then became an FB fan. Adorable giveaway BTW.

  13. Came across your blog from seeing cute links about needlecraft. would love to win x

  14. Thanks all for commenting! Can't wait till Sunday now! Best of luck :)

  15. I can't remember if I found you fist or if you found me. Anyway, I was over the moon to find you - macrame and mid-century goodness. Definitely right up my alley! xx

  16. Hi Pippa,
    I think I found you on a blog list quite a while ago......and I'm sooooo glad I did.
    Tania xx

  17. I found your blog after you followed my blog and now I'm here and I love your blog and am going to follow you right back. Yay! Now I want to know how you found my blog.
    Great and gorgeous giveaway by the way. x

  18. I just found your blog through a google search :) I'm so glad I came across it because your blog is great! Thanks for the amazing giveaway

  19. Oh count me in please!!!!! The prizes are superb! I'd say I came across your blog on Her Library Adventures. Loving being a new follower of your blog. Xx
