GIVEAWAY Amalia Versaci Zipper Magnets- CLOSED

AND THE WINNER IS .... ROSCATA on Etsy (chosen by random number generator 342)- check out her amazing shop! A great big thank you to everyone who entered!

I am imagining that as a child someone may have told Amalia Versaci to just "zip it" and being a very literal and creative and genius child - she did!

Her amazing vintage zipper creations always make me so happy. They are totally unique and totally recycled and totally fun!

I have one of her zipper magnets and it is gorgeous and sturdy and perfect fidget material for a fidgeter like me!


WHAT YOU GET:
One lucky winner will receive a set of 4 vintage Amalia Versaci zipper magnets!



These will bring inspiration and organization to any magnetic surface and carry with them the memories of the dresses (and trousers) they zipped and unzipped in their younger days (oh, the stories an old zipper could tell us- good thing they keep their mouths zipped so our secrets are safe with them, huh?)



HOW TO WIN:
This is one of the last easy, peasy ones for summer- just leave a comment below with your contact information

For additional entries:

(5) Follow my blog
(5) Twitter this post
(5) Blog about this contest; linking to this post

Let me know if you have done these things so I can give you additional entries. This contest is open to everyone (worldwide shipping).

DRAWING:

MIDNIGHT on Sunday, Sept 6th!

This is one of the seemingly no brainer uses for zippers, that of course it took an incredibly savvy gal to figure out!
But mostly, these are just amazing, and I give unlimited praise.

I've been following for awhile now.
Thanks!
