Handing out treats

I know what everyone is thinking ... that I forgot something, right? ... well you're wrong, I didn't forget ... I'm a little behind that's all!! ... I promised treats for last Friday's VBF and I'm here to hand out the goodies today. Not an easy task since ALL participants have been blowing me away each Friday with new black finds and inspiration ... I'm also surprised to see the growing number of VBF Gypsies playing along each week ... it's been a fun game/party to play and we are half way through playing it ... I'm already dreaming up the next party idea in my head, I'll save that one for after the holiday rush! Okay, okay .... I know blah, blah, blah ... here are last week's treat winners ... remember these are "picked" from completely random ideas that come to mind ... you never know what will win a treat!

Miranda from 'The Sobbing settee' ... for being the only participant from Europe, The Netherlands to be exact.

Claudia from 'Mockingbird Hill Cottage' and Marsha from 'Sassy Mini Dolls' for being two of the most loyal and faithful commenters. (sp?)

Laura from '52 Flea' for being the 26th person to join VBF, the number 26 because it's my birthday .... and second for this magical post ... one of my favorites to date.

Debra from 'Common Ground' for "raising the bar" of VBF, so to speak ... I'm sure her beautiful and extensive posts have not gone unnoticed by all participants!

Will the above mentioned, please, please, please, drop me an e-mail at: gypsybrocante@gmail.com with your mailing address so that I can send off your treat asap ; )

Also, don't forget each and every comment, each and every week on my post, will enter you into the grand prize of a $50 Black Friday shopping spree at Gypsy Brocante ... not to worry, the brocante will be well stocked by Black Friday!!

Want to enter another fab give-away?? ... go check out fellow VBF Gypsy gal, Anne, of 'Fiona and Twig' she's celebrating reaching over 200 followers!

That's all for now ... I have a lot more catching up to do!!

And candy of course, but I'm not indulging in that this year. I am at the store, dressed up as a witch and looking very scary I'm sure.

    Have a great day! xJ
