Giveaway Winners & Shabby Apple $50 Giveaway! *CLOSED*

I am finally settled back into normal life after my long trip, and I have to thank all of you guys who stuck with me and read all of my sporadically scheduled posts.

Since a simple thank you isn't very exciting, I'm happy to announce a Shabby Apple $50 gift certificate giveaway!

First, to take care of some business.  There were two giveaways (for 12 rolls of Duck Tape and a Chakoner) that ended while I was away, and I have to announce the results.  Get ready guys!

The winner of 6 rolls of solid colored and 6 rolls of patterned Duck tape is...

Now to everyone who entered but did not win, you have another chance for something fun...

$50 to Shabby Apple!

If you are familiar with their clothes, you'll definitely want to win!  Read below for the rules and how to enter.

If you aren't familiar with Shabby Apple, they have some cute, cute styles.  You know how much I love vintage clothing, and here's some of the selection from their Vintage & Retro-Style Clothing collection.

I love the Arripidae dress, with the floaty chiffon layers and the fantastic color.  The styling is just to die for!

This is great little peplum black & white polka dot dress, which would have been perfect inspiration for my failed black & white challenge.  Instead I could buy this cute black & white dress!  I looove polka dots and peplums.  :)

Could I go back in time and wear this to the fancy tea we had in London?  Pretty please?

Remember my failed tutu?  Well, this tulle skirt is just heavenly!  It's part of their bridal collection too, if you are interested.
