Molly-Made, With love GIVEAWAY!

My word, do I have some exciting news! I would like to announce the BIG grand opening for my little Etsy shop!

I’m terribly excited. I have been working on this for a little while now, but its taken until now for me to pull together all the final bits and bobs.

My little shop will be selling darling detachable Peter Pan collars in a variety of colours and fabrics. My collars, named after old world movie starlets, feature my hand embroidery!
But before you cringe and remember “thisI promise I have come leaps and bounds with my hand stitches. I’ve been busily, and happily practicing away, and I fear that it has become somewhat of an addiction.

My first range of embroidered collars feature nautical symbols such as anchors and ship wheels. I will also be offering custom monogrammed collars (my favourite!)

So without out further adieu, I would like you to meet “Molly Made, With love

Natasha and I took all the photo’s at Sydney’s Luna Park. Well, outside, since they kicked us out for not having “authorized permission to take professional photographs” shme! Despite that, it was a load of fun! I bought 12 balloons for the occasion (and caught the train there with them, alone) because all grand openings need balloons and we took pictures all around the 1930’s theme park. I got asked so many times how much I was selling the balloons for. Yet, in the end, when I was trying to give them away for free! No one wanted them!

It was also the first “warmer” day we have had in a while, and I managed to wear a tee shirt without being cold! ah, the joys of sunshine.

I also got to wear my new “Here Comes the Sun” skirt, which was so fitting for the shoot and the day. I was so happy with the way all the photographs turned out that I used them to re-style my blog, did you notice? what do you think?

Now, the good part -  did you notice the word “giveaway” in giant capital letters in this posts subject line? That right!  I’m so excited about my collars (if you couldn’t tell that already) that I’m offering either a personalized monogrammed collar, or a nautical themed collar of your choosing. All you have to do is take a peek at my new store and leave a comment on this post before Midnight on Friday 26th of August stating which one you would choose, if you won. Be sure to leave an email address so I can contact you, should you be the lucky winner. The winner will be selected by the good old fashioned method of drawing a name from a hat (and a cute hat at that)
Good Luck! x
