Garage sale giveaway


I've been planning this giveaway for a couple of days now and guess what; I just won a giveaway on Ribbons and Pom Poms! So I want to pass on the favour to somebody else...
I just went through my boxes the other day and discovered a few things that are slightly damaged or that have just been sitting around long enough for me to get a bit tired of it. In this giveaway are two peg dolls (in perfect working order :), a small rebound notebook (not making any more; I sold my binder) and a poppy vintage embroidery brooch. The brooch is damaged on the back: good enough to wear yourself but not to give away as a gift. To win I want you to leave a comment here: name your all-time favourite movie. Hard work, I know! I'll give you until next Sunday, 8pm NZ time. Remember to make sure I can contact you (if you don't have a Blogger account, leave your email address).
I think I might fit in a couple more giveaways before Christmas, so come back next week for the second installment...

A bit old fashioned I know - But I LOVE The Sound of Music. Such lovely childhood memories watching this movie over and over again! Dreaming about how it would feel like to be "16 going on 17" Hehehe....
Still love the movie even today!

I thought of 2001 a Space Odyssey but then realised my all-time fave is The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I can watch it over and over.

Hi Heleen
I think it would have to be "The Princess Bride". Cracks me up everytime I watch it.
Please tell me its only the little bound books you aren't making anymore?!

bummer - i would have said The Sound of Music too (must have seen it about 100 times, and did the tour - couldn't find the t-shirt though)... so instead, love actually - i love all the stories in it

Jennie said...

A more recent one - Seven Pounds with Will Smith. A tear jerker, brilliant.

Rebecca said...

my favourite is an old time classic 'Mary Poppins'. The supercalifragilisticexpialidocious song has me singing along everytime. Thanks for chance to win. Cheers!

Mira Design said...

One of my favourites is a pretty recent one - Babel. Walk past the DVD-shop tonight if you haven't seen it already!
Ciao

Mira Design said...

Oh god, I have no idea... no idea. I'll get back to you on this one!

Bam Bam Creative said...

(please don't hold it against me! It's a little lame...) but one of my all time favourite movies is Bridges of Madison County.

It's so hard to narrow it down to one! Bugsy Malone and Moonwalker are all first equal with the Bridges, so I'm going out on a limb ;)

roseanne said...

what amazingly beautiful things you make!

my favourite is labyrinth... has very happy childhood memories associated with it,also annie (the old version)i had an amazing outing as a child going to the movies with granma, all dressed up, in Auckland city for dinner and the movie in a big old movie theater, and meeting up with grandad and my brothers (they went to a boys movie)at a restaurant for dessert afterwards.

kind regards

Well I'm a big sop and need a happy ending so it's Love Actually for me. I love your rebound books.

Baghdad Cafe...there is something about a German hausfrau in the Nevada desert that tickles me to death.

Only just found this blog today....good timing huh?

Hi, just arrived at your blog for the first time today and loved the invitation to share my favourite film of all time..."Delicatessen". This obscure french gem had me in stitches, themed in favour of vegetarians and the blackest comedy you could possibly imagine. But quaint and a fairy tale love story at it's core.

Besides this your felt creations are inspiring, I especially adore the re-bound note book as I am an obsessive collector of illustrated children's books.

Amanda said...

My favourite movie is 'Juno', it's the music that draws me in - I love it!!!

Two hands. I love a good Aussie film with some of our best actors.
It was funny, full of action and suspence and a bit of a love story. What more could you want.

Cat Taylor Design said...

All time favourite movie, now that is soooo hard... but I would have to say the most memorable would be my first ever movie... Grease! I still remember all the details of the day, and have a photo of my sister, and our friends all dressed up standing my the old Chrysler waiting to go!

Laura said...

The Jane Austen Book Club with a cup of tea and a pillow! It's relaxing, inspiring and makes me pull the books out every time!

Anne, feltmark said...

My all time favourite film is "The Cruel Sea" it's dramatic in an understated English - stiff upper lip way. I worked on a second world war cruiser museum when I saw it so it had lots of lovely memories. It's also the only book that my Dad ever read on the recommendation of my grandad so it has lots of connections for me.

The hero and villain is the sea!
