Mosaic Monday: Giveaway and Sale




Those of you who have been visiting here for awhile now know that I have a long-standing love affair with transferware dishes. I can't explain it, don't understand it... (what song are those lyrics from?) except to say that I cannot imagine having at least one piece of transferware in my house. Of course, as my husband points out, we have way more dishes than we know what to do with, and many of them are transferware... but that is a post for another day. Today, I have something really exciting for you.

A giveaway!!! And a sale!!! (Actually, that's two things but who is counting?)

I have written before of my blogging friend Nancy, whose blog Nancy's Daily Dish is a must-see for anyone who loves transferware. Nancy has an etsy shop that offers a very comprehensive collection of vintage and antique English transferware. It is a marvelous place to visit if you love dishes! But first, go to my review blog, where you can read all about and enter the terrific giveaway and sale!

Now let's have some mosaic fun! Here are the instructions:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  46. Dishes the object of my affections.
    I once had a beautiful bowl small turine
    it was all castles brown over white. Don't know much about it, gone now stolen as many things from workers I have had. It is such a sad thing to get old and have things missing. Hate a theif.
