Happy Solstice!

Wow! This holiday season has been crazy busy, especially in my Second Chance shop on Etsy, though AntB on Etsy was bustling too.  So, I'm sorry this post is so long overdue, but it was for a happy reason. 

Solstice means Giveaway!


I have a couple little things to giveaway. First I have two pairs of dipping dishes. These are small square bowls that would be perfect for holding vitamins so they don't roll away before you can take them, or for holding a couple tablespoons of wasabi. Put one by your sink to hold rings or earrings. So many uses! They also are just the right size to hold a regular tea light.  
With their sun and moon images, I thought they were perfect for the winter Solstice. 


There are two pairs of these, just the same. These are similar to the ones I sell in sets of three on Etsy. 
These little dishes are about 2.75 inches square (7 centimeters). They are porcelain and dishwasher and microwave safe, though so small that I doubt you would put them in the dishwasher or microwave. 
 Next, I'm also giving away a mug. The images are from antique sources, and the words are my favorite phrases from this post on Regretsy.com
Thank you to Helen Killer!

The mug holds 16 oz and is dishwasher and mirowave safe.  Inside it says "You have no privilege to utter falsehoods on the internet" and "Some people are wreck less fools".  A somewhat labor intensive design, but sooo much fun, especially if you are into Etsy drama.  (like me!)
 And finally I'm giving away something from AntB too. 



This little holder is great for ACEO's and ATC's as well as Polaroids and recipe cards. It also will hold about 10 business cards too, so if you do craft fairs, it might be useful. 


To win any of these,  just leave a message in the comments. Say which one you would like to have a chance win. If you want to be in the running for any or all of them, just say so, and I will put you in for all of them. If you have won before, I DON'T CARE! Comment to win again.  :D

I will be picking winners on Monday (Christmas Eve). **Be sure to put a way to contact you in the comments!!**

Thanks! And HAPPY YULE!

AntB your stuff is simply beautiful! How do I decide when everything is so cool? Which means I'm selfishly requesting to be entered in all three! www.beaniegee.etsy.com if I happen to win! xoCF4Lxo

Nicole said...

I adore your stuff, and have been dying to add more to my collection!

**I'd like my name tossed into the hat as well, in case my previous comment wasn't sufficient entry! :)

I have wanted a Govern Yourself mug since you first rolled them out! At the same time though, when you mentioned the little dishes as vitamin holders, a lightbulb went on, because the manflesh and I both take a pile of supplements each morning and end up putting them in random little cups. It would be nice to each have our own special vitamin dish. So... either of those things would be great. If I win, you can email me at bertaberta@gmail.com. Thanks for making such great things!

If only I had the monies, I'd buy all the things you make AntB - but today I try to win just the mug or card holder. Thanks!

Happy Solstice to you! <3 I am in love with the Doctor Who mug I got from you and use it almost every day :) Super in love with all of your work. If I happen to win, it's natura pluma designs at gmail dot com!

Ms. Kitten Lamieux said...

I have always admired your beautiful work. I would be proud to display your little sun and moon dishes prominently in some of the photos I shoot for my cooking blog. Fingers are crossed!

Pastry Girl said...

I want the mug. I'd want the others, but A) I have no business cards and 2) I don't have any use for dip bowls.

I would love to win the little wasabi holders. Not sure what I'd use them for, but I love the Sun and Moon

The Laurinak said...

Oh, I do want all the things! I stare longingly at both of your etsy shops on kind of an embarrassingly regular basis. For seriously, next time I get a job, I'm buying something. So you should probably arrange for me to win something. :)
I'm laurlaur on the Regretsy forums, and email is LEDissen@gmail.

Did my post show up?

Anyway, your stuff is lovely. I wish I had purchased from you instead of the rip off artist?

Oh how I love to govern myself accordingly! And I love you!

I'd love the govern yourself mug! LOL :)

steelbluelily said...

Oh - these are all wonderful. I had no idea where the "govern yourself accordingly" had originated so I appreciated that link back to it. As a new teacher, I got several mugs for Christmas from my students - none of them as creatively quirky as yours, but I'm full up on mugs now. I'd love to be in the running for the little sun/moon dishes or the card holder though. I love the idea that you can hide a little something in it. I'm thinking the emergency Lindt truffle needs to be stored back there for when it's REALLY needed.

You can reach me at lassad@stcps.org - I'm going to go explore the rest of your chop now. Happy Solstice - from here on out it just gets brighter!
