Surprise Giveaway! Win a Gift Certificate to Serendipity Vintage.com

As I have been puttering about the house on this fine Memorial Day weekend, lamenting that I didn't plan a weekend getaway to some exciting place, I realized that no small number of you must be at home for the long weekend as well.

Although I have a joint-giveaway planned with another bloggy friend coming up soon, I thought it might be fun to give away a couple of $5 gift certificates to SerendipityVintage.com for those of you stuck at home as I am on a holiday weekend.

Just leave a comment telling me about your plans (or lack of them) for this weekend at the end of this post.  One comment per reader.  I will select and announce two winners by random drawing on Tuesday, May 31st.  Contest ends at midnight Pacific Time on Memorial Day, May 30th.  Good luck!

Craft Update: Crocheted Lap Blanket

Just a quick post to say that I've finally finished the lap blanket for my grandmother!  It matches the shawl that I made eons ago.  It's a very, very simple design, just double crochets and a border of shells:

I have a giveaway in the works for you crafters out there...stay tuned!

Vintage Thingies Thursday: The Egg Divided
