St. Patrick's Day Giveaway

I'm Bohemian and my husband is Italian, but here in Chicago everyone celebrates St. Patrick's Day - they even dye the Chicago River green.
Since my name is Patti, and since I have somehow managed to hit 350 followers (Could it be possible that 350 people actually look at my blog from time to time ???)
It is time for a giveaway!

My giveaway is a little leprechaun slipper,
not really, it is a sweet little sewing slipper from a Stacy Nash pattern featuring vintage army green wool, a little cream velvet edge and an antique mother of pearl button.
Inside you will find a little spool of thread, a thimble, an old key and a few antique buttons.

As always, this giveaway is open to everyone.
To thank all of you followers out there, you will receive an extra entry, just let me know that you are a follower.
So tell me, what are you listening to lately? I have Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, Philip Phillips and the Goat Rodeo Sessions on repeat and am looking for something new to listen to.
Either comment on this post or send an email to me at with March Music in the subject line. I will pick a winner on Friday, 3/22.
I will leave you with a picture of a neat antique needle case that I found recently.
Definitely in the color of the day. 

Let the trees of the forest sing,
let them sing for joy before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
~1 Chronicles 16:33-34

And thanks to all of you that take the time to look at my blog and comment - it means the world to me!
Blessings, Patti

I am definitely a follower and love the little green slipper. Currently my most recent favorite is Brave on the new Josh Groban CD All That Echoes. I could listen to that song all day, later followed by Home from Phil Phillips. A Happy St. Patty's Day to you.

Jean Bee said...

Oh gosh, love that little slipper (and all the goodies in it!). I love how you added the white velvet. Very nice - would love to win this!
Actually, the only thing I listen to is the TV - I have three in different rooms and I have them all on just for the "noise" as I go from room to room while I'm working on something. I should get a CD player so I can listen to music!
I remember the river being dyed from when I lived in Chicago - but I always thought it didn't take much dye as it's pretty green anyway!!

Marilyn said...

Oh, that little slipper is soooooo cute!
I would love to give it a home. :)
Right now, I'm listening to Inkapirka, an Indian group.
Their music is so relaxing.

I am a follower of your blod and would love the little slipper to come to stay in my home. I have been listening to an ENYA CD I bought at the library book sale for $1.00, it is called the Celts how appropriate for St. Paddys Day!

My husband and I were in Chicago for St. Patricks day when we were in college (won't say how many years ago) and saw the Green river, I still have my picture from the Sears Tower of it. Love it.

Thank you for the giveaway
