Birthday Giveaway!

Friends, it was my birthday last week, and I really love celebrating my birthday.  I want to share that joy with you because I really want to use my birthday present from Rob:

Meg the Grand stationery!  With orange envelopes!!

(It's like he really gets me, you know?)

Not only did he get me some fabulous stationery, he got me stamps!  With my picture on it!
This picture to be exact:

Love love love.  Need to start writing and sending some letters - stat.

Well, there needs to be something else in this package besides a letter from Yours Truly.  How about some fabulous vintage fabric?

Approximately 3 yards of electric green cotton with houses, birds, butterflies and giant flowers on it.  Totally 70's, and totally love it. 

I'm also giving away a golf bag sew on embellishment, a stick on Bugs Bunny embellishment, and some super crazy ice cream cone patches.  Aren't they wild?

Some large and small black buttons, two large white buttons and little rosettes...

as well as three yards of this totally brilliant fringe could be yours!

In order to win this fabulousness, you need to tell me in the comments what you would make with this fabric.  I have been holding onto it for YEARS, hoping I could come across the perfect pattern to show off the birds/houses/flowers, but nothing has come my way. 

This giveaway is open to all blog followers (including you lovely international folks), and will close Friday, July 29 at 11:59pm CDT. 

Have a fantastic day, all!!


  1. Wow! What a giveaway! I think the fabric would be great as a Colette Parfait dress!

    Really impressed by your stationery!

  2. Hi Dear ! Ohhhh I love the stationery, call me old fashion but its so wonderful getting a little letter and a Thank you note !

    Hummmm. I never done the sorbeto pattern, so Thats I would do with this fabric.

    Happy birthday ! Lots of Love,

  3. Happy birthday Meg!
    Just love that fabric, count me in for the giveaway, I'm now going to rummage through my patterns to work out what I would make with it

  4. Hah, awesome! Happy birthday! I think that I would sew a stuffed animal in the shape of a bird out of that fabric. Or maybe make a curtain for the kitchen.

  5. Wow, that would go awesome in any of my 70s patterns, but I know I've got a specific dress in mind (can't find the pattern, of course!). However, I'd love to win this just for the golf bag patches. My boyfriend would love those on a shirt or something.

  6. Ooh that fabric is tres awesome! So many options on what to make with it... a skirt? A shirt? An a line dress? All three would be rather awesome I reckon
