Vintage blog candy

This candy is now closed!

Well you guys have certainly earned it!!! I have passed 10 000 visitors, and I have passed 15 000 visitors and done nothing. Went by 25-50-75 followers and didn't even flinch.

It's totally horrid and I'm standing here shameful in a corner. So now, to remedy my ignorance, I've put together a small kit to play with. Since I have a tendency to go for a specific style the kit is - of course - very vintage. (The Swedish newspaper pages are by the way very authentic, I found the newspaper in the basement and it's dated 1936)

So if you want it just put a comment under this post. It would be nice if you spread the word and linked from your blogs but in no way compulsory.

This candy will be open until midnight January 15th.

Hei, jeg får prøve igjen å legge inn en kommentar her. Den vil liksom ikke lastes opp.
Gratulere med så mange treff og følgere, men det er fortjent, du lager så mye flott.
Har laget en post i bloggen min om denne candyen. Håper bare jeg har litt flaks for en gangs skyld.
