I love the Antique Glass Necklace. All the other things are really neat too! My husband was wounded in Viet Nam and spent a long period of time in a Japanese hospital. My Dad was in Japan in World War II. I'd love to have something Japanese. Thanks for the chance.

Ohhh...this is an amazing giveaway, truly! And a wonderful shop- thanks for pointing me towards it!

I am entranced by the Antique Shuttle Loom. So rarely do the tools of ordinary people get saved! I'd love to know more about it-- where was it found? How did it come here? -- and would so love to see it in person.

Thank you, both of you, for running this giveaway!

belinha said...

"When I saw this I was immediately drawn to it. The level of work that has gone into it is absolutely amazing. It has the patina that can only come from being passed through silk many hundreds of thousands of times. It is a great item to put on a shelf or to accent other small collectibles."
What a precious thing! MY GOD!How I would love to be the lucky winner!I can almost imagine this object in the hand of a japanese woman many years ago.This is so interesting...

Of course that I will not have any luck!As usual!!:)))But at least I can dream about it.When persons ask if I have a dream I allways answer to visit Japan...

Belinha1(at) hotmail.com

No news to tell about the giveawy yet.I saw some very nice soap from a very old factory.That could be a nice thing.They have great scent!

Heavy rain and wind is coming....:(

Hugs!
