You Snooze…I Win!

I entered a giveaway the other day on the Couture Allure Vintage Fashion Blog. The prize was this new book put out by the Smithsonian. I wanted it. I didn’t win.


Sigh. But when I checked my email this morning, I learned that two of the ten winners never got in touch to claim their prize. And they drew again and my number came up. Woo hoo!

Can’t wait to get my hands on this book, which has been published in conjunction with a new show L.A. Frock Stars. If you like vintage clothing be sure to watch the first episode on the website. And yes, check out Couture Allure too. Talk about eye candy! I’ve learned a lot in the weeks I’ve been reading it.

So thank you so much, Jody at Couture Allure. In honor of the subject at hand, I’m using a font named Chanel!

Since we’re on the subject of book giveaways – yes, the Sleeping Dogs Lie ebook giveaway is ticking right along. Plenty more copies available. That’s one of the beauty of ebooks, you don’t run out. So far we’ve given away just shy of 2500 copies – it’s averaging about one book per minute! So download and enjoy. Giveaway ends Friday night!

Sleeping Dogs Lie Cover


  1. Free is fantastic.
    I have just returned from NZ where they are ace at garage sales and op (thrift)shops...lots of mid-century modern stuff.

    1. I have lots of readers in NZ & Australia who make me want to go driveway shopping down there! But I didn't know about the MCM stuff. I may have to take up international travel...


I really love your comments. Thanks for coming along on my thrifty adventures!
