The Divine Diva Vintage Giveaway!



Hey, it's about time for another giveaway, isn't it? This is a very good giveaway with 4 great items.

Anyone can enter to win, just post a comment below or send an email to dvintage@comcast.net
A winner will be chosen on July 26th, which is a Monday.

This drawing will include the book 'Bette & Joan The Divine Feud' - I just read this and I loved it! There is juicy gossip (Joan was kinda slutty) and catty, bitchy remarks on nearly every page of the book.

Also is a 1930s  small pillow cover made of dusty peach and teal silk matte satin petals. It has an opening in the back to slide in a 7-1/2 inch pillow.




Next is a dark pink crochet thingy, probably from the 1930s as well. The inside section is peach acetate and it is stuffed. I don't know if it was a pin cushion or what because it is meant to hang. It also reminds me of those things that you would see boudoir or kewpie dolls attached to, kind of lounging on the top.



Lastly is a very cool 1950s travel set. It's a soft clear plastic bag with a painted fan and rhinestones on the front. It snaps on the back. Inside are 3 containers with plastic faux pearl tops, and a brush and comb. Excellent, the items look like they were never used.

What fun stuff! I think the pink thingy was a pomander for scent. Think early air freshener!

I would love to be the winner of all of these gorgeous items! In fact, when I first saw that pink heart the other day on your blog, I fell in love. And, I am traveling in a few weekends and that set would be so fun to carry along!

What a lovely selection for your giveaway! I have heard lots of things about Joan as well....Mommy Dearest is a good read too! Bette Davis I'm sure was a handful.

Ah, Strathmere...where you can throw a rock from one end to the other. Such a cute little town. One of my HS girlfriend's family had a house there. I haven't been there for years, though...have all the builders torn down the beach houses to put up all those McMansions on stilts for the North Jersey and Staten Island folks?
I lived in Manahawkin and on LBI for years, but moved a little ways back inland to finish college. Can't wait to go home!

Lovely feminine finds. I have just watched a documentary about when Joan Crawford and Bette Davis worked together on their first and only film they completed together, I cant imagine hating anyone so much that I would physical hurt them.
