Too HOT ~ So time for a little MURANO Giveaway ~

It is so humid today and looking at the clouds outside I think we may be in for a summer storm. The heat is making me feel very lazy and instead of getting busy doing the long list of chores that need doing around the place, let alone all the cleaning I need to do for the centres, I have been distracted by a few new goodies Kristen has brought home.
One is this sweet little Italian Murano glass vase. It is only about 12 cm high and is such a gentle shade of purple.
So in order to distract myself even further I have decided to have a little give away of this sweetie. If you think you might like her to come and live at your place or know someone who might love her just leave a comment and I will draw a winner next Sunday. I am happy to send  world wide and if you are a follower you of course will get an extra entry.
Surprisingly it still has its little sticker label. Hope you have a lovely day.

I wish it would just rain as it is dirty dusty blowy... [can't please me !! hehehe]

  12. Thanks for stopping by! While having coffee at WAC I was looking around, wondering who everybody was. You were probably one of the ones sitting there. I am completely over this heat.

  13. Count me in, lady.

    I could use that gorgeous piece of Italian glass ware to hold all my mini-Aussie flags! HA!

  14. I'd so love to be counted in for this beauty. The first piece of glass I was given as a child was a Murano paperweight and it totally got me hooked! My mum has a Murano swan? that remind me very much of this. Wonderful!

  15. What a lovely idea Miss Katherine. So pretty ... I would love to have her but i can see her over at Brismod's place even more than mine. So maybe add my comment in on behalf of her. Can i do that??? ...

    ps. you're so right about the table i sold - you made me feel so much better. If ok with you, i had a girl msg me about a print she wants to sell - do you mind if i refer her to you? You could prob answer her a little better with the knowledge you have. She left the comment on my blog under the Tretchikoff post. Check it out and let me know what you think. I can email her back if you like. But i need your expert opinion.. you guru you. Thanks gorgeous.x

  16. Please enter me! What a beautiful little vase. I can even pick it up to save you the postage, if it doesn't melt first in this heat.

  17. My big girl has taken to liking glass objects. Maybe this could be the start of something a little more classy rather than the tatty glass souvenir shop buys?
    I don't know if you got much of a storm but it was a real disappointment. A little bit of rumbling, a small downpour then back to stinking hot. I've had sweat in places I don't even want to think about! ;-)
