Giveaway purse

 
Hello,
just a little note to show you a couple of pieces I have been working on.
Birds and bunnies seem to rule my thought process at the moment!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
More recycled wooden hearts, with a nod to Valentine's day with flowers and hearts hand painted
around the house, dog or kitty design.
 
 
 
All now in my Etsy shop.
 
 
To finish, I thought that it would be good to do a 'Giveaway'.
I have this coin purse/small clutch.
If you fancy throwing your name into the mix for a chance of receiving it,
please just leave a comment.
I will do that random generator thingy, sometime next Sunday 13th, UK time.
 
Just to say how grateful I am for your visits to Hen's Teeth.
Thanks for stopping by.
ps: please forgive the layout of this post.  I have battled with blogger for the last hour or so to get just this little post together....is it me?

I love your work Viv. (You may have noticed that I tend to pin it on Pinterest.)

I would LOVE to have a chance to win your wee purse. I think the things in our lives should be both functional & beautiful & this fits the bill nicely.

Marylinn Kelly said...

Dear Hens Teeth, I am a great fan of your work, discovered on FB thanks to Denise at Grrl and dog. Thank you for the chance to win one of your purses or anything you've created. As one with a great weakness for old letters and stamps, I especially love the way you work those elements into your art. xo

Hey Viv, lovely new pieces......your work is always inspirational and I just want to plug my machine in and 'play' after visiting you, BUT there's washing, ironing and vacuming to be done first, BORING!!

lettice leaf said...

Hopefully I'm the hundreth comment!?!

Don't count me in for the give away. WOT!

Not because I don't want one of your fabulous works Viv... just because I already own so many lovely, LOVELY Viv masterpieces. I just want someone else to enjoy.

And folks if just a fraction of you bought some Viv works for yourselves, or as presents for friends...

How good would that be for a truly talented crafting genius?

Plus an investment for when Viv hits the BIG time.

'Well I knew... and bought from her before she was famous!'
