200th Post Giveaway!

A *Numinosity* bead

It's been quite a whirlwind this last month with travel and guests 
and now I have a few moments to catch up!
I'd like to have a little giveaway to celebrate this milestone.
There were a few things that I did accomplish this last month in
between all the hubbub.
I got my new website up
and have been in the process of beefing up my Etsy shops after a year's break.

I'm liking the "circles" concept and it seems to be helping me connect and reach folks with similar tastes and I've been able to link up with some of my blog friend's shops that way too.
For the first time ever I've sold some items immediately upon posting which is quite encouraging indeed!
Have a look on my sidebar for the links if you wish. I have one for my beads and jewelry and another for vintage.

Of course my giveaway has to include some of my recent finds~
Asian postal ephemera

and the ancient Chinese coins

One of my collages

and some soft handmade Dim Sum coasters

The drawing will take place in the evening of Sunday March 13th.
All you need to do is comment on this post.
For extra chances, blog about it or put it on your side bar (one or the other)
or become a follower
and send me a separate comment letting me know that you have done so.
If you are already a follower just send me another comment even though I know that you are
so it will make it easier for me to use the random number generator!

Thanks for joining me on my blog journey. It's been so much fun.
