On the First Day of Winter, Antiqua Picked for Me...Two Vintage Winners!

It's December 21, the first official day of winter - and it's time to pick two winners for my Vintage Christmas Giveaway.

I wanted to do it the old-fashioned way - so I've collected all the comments, tossed the names in my Santa hat, and now I am just waiting until midnight (because I said I would) to draw the winning names...

"Pretty Kitty Kelly" Sheet Music, 1920.  Words by Harry Pease - Music by Ed. Nelson.  
(Yes, poor Kitty has a bite taken out of her last name, but for 25 cents she was just too pretty to pass up...)

Patiently waiting...
10 p.m....
11 p.m...
....oops fell asleep! now it's well past midnight!

Okay, I've stirred up the names and am going to close my eyes and summon the Goddess Antiqua (you haven't forgotten about her, have you?)....... help me pick two special vintage-loving winners...

And the winners are...

Garnet Scarabin


Straight Talking Mama! 

Congratulations to both of you!   I'll send you an email to find out which of the four giveaway options you like best...

Straight Talking Mama (Fiona) is a 50's loving gal from Hampshire, UK and has a wonderful blog!  Be sure to pay her a visit if you haven't stopped by yet.  And Garnet (Arizona, U.S.) is a student currently working toward her undergrad in History, and planning to focus on Minoan civilization in grad school.  I don't think Garnet has a blog (yet), but she certainly has a clever profile - so I hope to see more from her soon!

Wish I could pick about 10 more winners - you're all wonderful!   

Happy Winter!
"Sarsaparilla" Susan

  9. Hi Garnet,

  10. ooooh that's me, that's me!!! I've been away and not blogging YAY I won whoo hoo!

    What do I do?!!

    Congrats to you too Garnet :o)

  11. Straight Talking Mama - Yes it's YOU! Welcome back! I didn't have your email address, so I left you a message on your blog last week - but you had already left town...

    Send me an email at & we'll figure this out! Garnet was so excited about the cookbooks - so I've already promised her the paper things. I had the impression that you really liked the Christmas things, so they're yours if you want them. OR...the pink negligee...or green dress! Just let me know.
    Susan :-)
