It's 100th Post Celebration time at Shabby Vintage Junk & Vintage Junk In My Trunk....!

Hello Keepers Of The Past near & far it's CELEBRATION time....!

I had NO IDEA when I started blogging back on the 1st January this year that I was to become part of an AMAZING community of supportive creative souls....Or for that fact, that many of you reading of my junking adventures would be from different time zones....I NEVER contemplated reading cheery words from Italy, Finland, England, Scotland, New Zealand, Canada or Wales though I DID have a sneaking suspicion I'd hear from the US....

For a while when I first started it seemed as if I was all alone....I remember calling out to Mr SVJ as he left for work one morning that FIVE people had found me & were reading my blog....When he poked his head back in the bedroom door where I sat in bed with my laptop I had the BIGGEST smile on my face you'd have thought I'd won the lottery....hahahahahaha....Well really I HAD....I had found YOU & you had found ME and this very simple fact STILL makes me SMILE OUT LOUD....!

One of the first people to climb on board the Shabby Vintage Junk train was Gina from Vintage Junk In My Trunk & it is with Gina that I have the HONOUR of sharing my 100th post.

We've been co-ordinating this momentous occasion back & forth for well over a month now & would LOVE if you join in our LINKY PARTY to help celebrate....We are offering some WONDERFUL TREASURES as giveaways & have thought up some FUN ways for you to participate & increase your chances as well as get to 'meet' some incredible blogs that you otherwise may not be aware of....!!

Now for the rules for the Shabby Vintage Junk side of the giveaway....But before I start....If you see anything the least bit HOMERESQUE about my calculations, please let me know so I can fix it....hahahahaha....!

* This giveaway is open to EVERYONE & you don't have to be a 'follower'....!

NB: If you ARE a follower though, please be sure to let me know as you will receive an additional FIVE entries as a THANK YOU....!!

*  Linking to the SVJ LINKY PARTY will give you FIVE entries (however, if you are a follower, this will automatically give you TEN entries)

*  Just leaving a comment will give you TWO entries (however, if you are a follower, link to the SVJ LINKY PARTY & leave a comment this will give you TWELVE entries)

* Now....If you just leave a comment on BOTH blogs this will give you FIVE entries (however, if you are a follower, leave comments on both blogs AND link to the SVJ LINKY PARTY, this will give you a WHOPPING FIFTEEN entries)

*** Entries close on Tuesday 7th December at 11.59pm EST (Australia) or 7.59am Tuesday December 7th (USA / New York) ***

EIGHT LUCKY WINNERS will be drawn by Mr SVJ from hand written paper entries placed in a big old galvinised tub....Appropro dontcha think....hahahahaha....!!

Now one LAST note before I leave you to savour your potential prizes....If you are the LEAST BIT confused by 'the above', don't hesitate to email me at: shabbyvintagejunk@hotmail.com ....!!!

YUMMY metal gas station number 2 
Shabby Vintage Junk designed necklace using vintage elements inc red rosary glass chain 
Australian made Westclox clock 
Flat red metal sprocket tool box 
Childs sweet chippy white bowling pin 
Six of my FAVE mercury glass ornaments 
Two ADORABLE frames with a TO DIE FOR PATINA 
Ten mercury glass icicles

OK....That's it from me....Gina & I are looking forward to sharing this MOMENTOUS occasion with you....!!

Happy 100th to us....!!!!!

Cheers for now,
Tamarah xxx
