Halloween Giveaway!

Pin It Now!

Last week, you may remember I posted a picture of my Victorian boots that I put out for Halloween every year. To me, they look just like witches boots! Well, my mom saw that post and said she would like to have a giveaway on my blog for one of hers. She bought this years ago and there was only one.

So if you would like to win this old antique boot just in time for Halloween, please leave a comment below. This is open to those in the U.S. and Canada only (due to shipping costs.) If you don't have a blog, please be sure to leave your email address or you can send me an email (cindy95131@yahoo.com). The drawing will end on Tuesday, Oct 27th at midnight and I will do my best to get it to the winner before Halloween!

Cindy, I love this idea-soooo cute and creative. I have pair of white lace up victorian boots that I wore for my wedding and this makes me think I should use them in this way for other holiday decor-maybe Christmas or Valentines day, with Red roses-how pretty-
I would love to be entered in the giveaway-thank you so much-ps. your blog is so fun to look at-I love it!

OMG! When I saw this giveaway I screamed with excitement.

Ever since I saw that picture you posted when you decorated with the shoes I have been on the look out for one like it. Nowhere to be found I would just look at yours and dream!

I have NEVER wanted to win a giveaway more then this one!

Tell your mom THANK YOU for doing this. I know whoever wins it will be thrilled.

Now if only dreams really do come true...........I'll be the winner.

Big hugs,
Joanne

This is such a fun giveaway. Wonderful for halloween but I can see it used for so many other vignettes. Picture it with some old lace spilling out of the top and surrounded with antique teacups and teapots sitting on an old lace tablecloth. Please enter me in the giveaway!
