Miss Gracie's finds and a White/Wedding Giveaway

Amazing! Miss Gracie's & Friends Vintage Barn Sale was amazing in so many ways. The sale started at 6:00 pm on Friday, I thought I would be good by arriving right at 6:00...apparently I should have been there an hour earlier! The cars were lined up a couple of blocks down both sides of the road. I am not the only one who was excited for this sale! People were already putting their purchases in the yard and going to buy more! I wish I had pictures to show you because you would be blown away at all the gorgeous things!
I saw Miss Gracie herself but she was so busy I didn't want to bother her. I did run in to another blogging friend, Toni from The Tattered Cottage. She was the sweetest lady and had some very lovely treasures for sale too! I didn't have a lot of money to spend, nor do I have room in my tiny little house for anything big, but I definitely wanted to buy something for myself and something for one of you too! Here are the purchases that I made. Her prices are so reasonable which makes it even better!

The first thing I spotted and scooped up were these silver napkin rings. So sorry for the glare, but they are engraved with a "P"...perfect since my last name is now Phillips! Six of these were $5...I couldn't grab them up fast enough!
I passed by these heavy metal keys several times. On my 3rd walk through of the whole sale, I grabbed them. I think they are just too neat not to have!
There were 2 of these heavy iron finials. I only grabbed one but now I wish I would have grabbed both of them!
This little mirror caught my eye right away. It is so tiny and adorable. You can't see it in the picture, but there are two little kissing cupids at the base of the mirror.
I just love the rose pattern on this metal cone. I must confess, it was all white when I got it but you couldn't really see the raised texture on it, so I distressed it to bring out the rose and other pretty areas. I could see this full of pretty flowers! I love everything I bought! It will be very hard to decide which thing I want to add to my giveaway!


Now for the giveaway-here is what I have for you! In honor of my 2 year wedding anniversary and my 1 year blogging anniversary, I have put together a couple of things that have special meaning to give to one lucky winner!
First up is this ornate frame that I have painted white and distressed. On a sheet of vintage sheet music, I printed out the words "Faith, Hope, Love". First Corinthians 13 has a very special place in my heart and it was read at our wedding. The greatest of these is of course, Love!
Next is this beautiful white candle holder. This was one of my centerpieces from my wedding. It has beautiful crystals dangling from it and is the perfect shabby chic accessory. You can put a candle on it or use it as a cupcake stand!
If you win my giveaway, you will win the white candle holder as well as the white frame. I will also be including one of the treasures I picked up from Miss Gracie's sale, except for the napkin rings. It's a beautiful, white, wedding inspired giveaway and I hope you win!!
So here is how you can win!

1. Leave a comment on this post, letting me know which of the Miss Gracie's items you would like to win along with the other goodies.
2. Become a follower and let me know or tell me you already are!
3. Post about this giveaway on your blog. You can use the picture above if you would like to post it on your sidebar. Let me know so I can come take a look!

You get 3 chances to win! This giveaway will run until July 13th, I will draw the winning name at 8:00 pm mountain time on July 13th and let the winner know on this blog.

Thank you to everyone who has given me the support to keep my blog going for a whole year! I may not be a Miss Gracie, but I love sharing my life and all things I love with all of you!

Good luck! I may just throw in a few extras too just to surprise you!
