Giveaway: Teeny Tiny Horsehair Basket!
Well, here is my first giveaway!
A TEENY TINY horsehair basket, only 10mm x 11mm. That is smaller than 1/2 an inch! It is the traditional olla or water jar shape...a very feminine shape. You see it balanced on the end of my index finger. As you can see, the individual hairs and my fingerprints are both visible in the picture, so you KNOW that pic is MUCH larger than life-sized!
This exquisite little basket is great for miniature collectors, dollhouse enthusiasts, horse lovers, basket makers, shadow box owners, pet lovers,...if you are one or all of those, or know one, this is a great giveaway for you.
It comes packaged in a lovely little handmade box (of recycled materials) tied up with frothy tulle. Just right for gift-giving. It would be a nice gift for yourself, too!
Very few people make horsehair baskets. They are very challenging to make, and there are no published instructions anywhere (but stay tuned, i am writing a book!) Here is your chance to own one, FREE.
There are 5 *five* DIFFERENT ways to enter. Any one or all of these means may be used. You don't need to do them in order. But you must do them exactly as stated. If you do only half of that requirement (for instance tweet, but not post the comment with the link to the tweet here) that entry will not count. Please make sure that i can get in touch with you in order to notify you, and to send you the prize! Anonymous entries obviously cannot win. The prize will be assigned randomly on June 14, 2009, (Sunday) to one of the entrants, and posted here. I will also tweet the winner.
