Wednesday is Rednesday and a Giveaway Winner

Oh my goodness, oh what a day, oh what a week. You can certainly tell that the holidays are fast approaching. Things have been so hectic, I was worried that I wouldn't have anything to show for today for Wednesday is Rednesday with Sue @ Its a Very Cherry World . I always have so much fun at her party. Then I came across this cheery red advertisement, actually a perfect product for my stressed out day.

Tussy Deoderant

This ad is from a 1950's magazine. Now it is one thing to have a Guardian Angel on your shoulder.......
But quite another to have an angel under your arms!!!! Oh well. Thought I would share.

Finally a Winner!!

I have a winner for my one year Blogaversary Giveaway. Congratulations to VintageBettys, a mother and daughter blog. How sweet! Mom, Laura and daughter, Michele love to craft, sew, garden, cook, bake, th
rift, and of course, all things VINTAGE. I would love to meet these women in person. Seems we have a lot in common.

So ladies, be sure to send me your address and this Goodwill bag will be full of goodies and on its way to you. Thank you again for everyone who participated in this giveaway. I have been working on stopping by and saying a Howdy and thank you to each person that left such great comments.

Here are a few favorite thrift finds that people shared with me ........

Junque Magnet found Vintage Cross Country Skis
Leah @ My Fancy found a Vintage 50's duvet/blanket cover

We can find our guardian angel in most places if we would just look for her. Best wishes to the winner. Nice post.

Would that be an Armpit Angel? I remember seeing Tussy deodorant when I was a kid, and incredibly I think that they still make it.
Congrats to Laura and Michele! I love their blog, and I know they're going to enjoy all the goodies that you'll be sending them!
Happy REDnesday!
