So, I didn't really get a very good start ... (Thank you for your comments, commenting is now closed)

 ...but I'm definitely ready to get this blog rolling! I operate 2 Etsy shops that I'd love to tell you about. The first one has the same name as this blog. Buttons and Lace features lots of vintage finds that I've amassed over the years-many beautiful things- and you can find it here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/meganleannewright
Here are a few examples of what I've listed for sale





Here's what I've been working really hard on lately!
I recently began a new shop called Honey and Vanilla which features my hand made hair accessories such as headbands and hair pins- and you can find it here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/honeyandvanilla.

Here are just a few things you can find in the shop:




You can currently get 20% off your order in either of my Etsy shops!

For 20% off your order at Buttons and Lace enter the code BUTTONS at checkout

For 20% off your order at Honey and Vanilla enter the code VANILLA at checkout
Now for the exciting part!
I'd really love to get more followers and direct more traffic to my shops, so I'm going to do 2 GIVEAWAYS! One reader will win this lovely vintage 1960s sewing pattern:


And another reader will win this cute  fabric cupcake hair pin:

  6. That sewing pattern looks AMAZING!!! It would look so good brought to life :) And out of your crafts, i'd have to say that that the little hairpins look like little flowery pinwheels that should be on my lawn, blowing in the wind. Too cute!

  7. Gimme! (please :D). The sewing pattern looks terrific and the cupcake pin is just so darn CUTE!
    Something random: I am currently eating a lollipop dipped in chili powder, salt and spices. It's kind of different but definitely delicious!
