A Vintage Inspired Valentine's Day Giveway {French, Victorian & Shabby Chic}!


Happy February everyone! Valentine's Day is fast approaching and since I "Cupid's Little Holiday," I have decided to host a fabulous "Vintage Inspired Valentine's Day Giveaway" ~ some French, a little Victorian & a dash of Shabby Chic! :)


This giveaway will give all of my readers a chance to win a few lovely vintage items from my personal collection {I really hope you love it as much as I do!}. First up are a pair of Vintage French Transferware plates.


I just love all the floral detailing on these lovelies! They are in beautiful condition with no cracks or chips on the face of these plates, so you can most definitely still eat off of them. Or you can use these plates to display your desserts {like the way I did in my recent Rosewater Cupcakes Post}. :)


Next up are a Stack of 15 French Love Letters dated between 1915-1917 wrapped in vintage lace. These little love notes will definitely get you in a Romantic mood for Valentine's Day! I don't know about you, but the thought of these old letters just gets my heart all a "pitter-patter!"


I'm also giving away a chance to win a beautiful Victorian-Inspired, Vintage Postcard that is dated 1913! They just don't make cards like they used to! And this one is just gorgeous with the lovely red roses & Victorian writing.


And lastly, I'm throwing in a simple packet of Shabby Chic by Treasures, floral sticky notes and page flags! Perfect for any occasion! :)


Well, my friends that just about concludes the lovely items in my Vintage-Inspired Valentine's Day Giveaway! Now onto the fun stuff.
