a Birthday Giveaway!

It's my birthday, so I can do whatever I want!
What I want to do is offer a giveaway full of a few of my favourite little things!
These are sweet little items that I have stored, like the squirrel that I am, waiting to find their uses.
I think their purpose is to be given a new home, for someone new to enjoy them! 
  1. a vintage lucite sunflower napkin holder
  2. a vintage HOT cast iron trivet (perfect for your cup of tea!)
  3. a vintage trinket box, with a woven peacock design
  4. a pair of earrings (sadly, my ears are not pierced) made out of vintage lucite beads
  5. a Be My Friend Valentine photo (made by me!)

above: a Me collage! my passport photo in 1978, a favourite birthday card from my grandma in 1981, the typical awkward teen birthday shot (I think I was 18 - I shouldn't have been this awkward), & another kittycat. I love kittycats.

If you'd like to win the sweet little vintage-inspired Birthday Giveaway, all you have to do is this:
  1. be a follower of Tea & Chickadees
  2. leave a comment, letting me know what your favourite type of cake is ('cause it's all about cake!).
It's that simple. And this is open Internationally!
Contest ends January 27th, with a winner announced January 28th.

Keep on enjoying the little things!

  1. Happy birthday!
    Shouldn't you be the one getting gifts — not the other way around? ;)

    When I'm trying to be healthy my favourite cake is a carrot one but I will always reach for a slice of chocolate first!


  2. so generous! My favourite is also carrot cake...with cream cheese frosting. Failing that, tiramisu, cheesecake or chocolate

  3. Hi Caren! You have a lovely blog. What a great giveaway! My favourite cake is Orange poppyseed, I have a great recipe from Collingwood College in Melbourne (you gotta love school fundraiser cookbooks).

  4. Hurray! I adore your collection of items, those earrings are fabulous! Hmm. My favourite kind of cake is a very hard question. I once made a 'cake to rule all cakes.' It had 6 layers of different kinds of cake. Chocolate, carrot, banana, sponge, brownie, and... umm... it was a long time ago. Apple maybe. Or marble. It was fairly ridiculous. That's my favourite kind of cake, ridiculous ones.

    Oh, and I have a little something planned for my birthday too!

  5. Happy Birthday ! Hope u have a memorable one !
