Giveaway Time!!

All That Jazz Vintage is having a giveaway to celebrate our 1 year anniversary!

Here are the goodies~

16"x16" French inspired tote.  This bag is a lightweight linen/cotton type of fabric- great for the flea market, a book and water bottle and sunscreen......or your lunch! It has a fun grain sack look with "Belle Jardiniere" stenciled on it.

A cute "soda" dish, would be darling hanging in your kitchen.

Also, a vintage bottle embellished by my cousin and Jazz partner Tara, using vintage crocheting, some bling, and pages from an old hymnal. A sprig of lavender will make everything smell wonderful, of course!

There will also be a SURPRISE gift from the Pottery Barn!

This will be based on the winner so it is "to be determined" (will take into account the winner's interests and favorite things.... this will make the giveaway even more personal and FUN!)

Okay, here is all you have to do to be entered!

1) Leave a comment on this post by Sunday April 10th by midnight. Please answer the following question: what was the very first blog you remember reading?

2) For a second entry, do a post about our giveaway on your blog. Come back and leave us a comment letting us know you did so. Feel free to use our photos from this post in your post.

If you have a blog, please make sure your email is on there so we can contact you, or include it in your comment.

Thanks for playing and thank YOU ALL for helping All That Jazz Vintage have a wonderful first year!!

What a lovely giveaway!! Please enter me, I'd love to win!

First blog I remember reading was Lisa Bearnson... she was the editor of a scrapbook magazine "Creating Keepsakes".. not sure how I remember that

Tara said...

My first blog was YOURS! You kindly gave the whole family the blogging bug, thank you very much. Now look where it has gotten me! I may have to have you hook me up with one of those bags Cousin dear!

Kristen said...

Dear Daisy Cottage. I had never heard of a blog. I found her photos on Flickr and the rest is history. :)


Doni said...

What a great question!! I remember looking around for a little bit on the scrapbook blogs, mainly Amazing Paper Grace with Becca Feeken, then I branched out and found Rose Garden Romantic...I was done after that....I mean done just browsing around. It was time to participate! I started my own blog after that and I was hooked!
You have some lovely items for your giveaway and I'd love to win it! Thanks so much for the opportunity!
Blessings, Doni

Fun giveaway! The very first blog I can remember reading was written by Tara Frey and was called Bella Pink and is now called Typing out Loud. She even wrote a book on blogging, but doesn't blog all that much anymore.

To answer your question: The first blog I remember reading was The Cottage Nest and boy oh boy did it ever open my eyes to a whole new world!

Happy Anniversary girls! You two are too much fun :)

The very first blog I read was over a year ago..... Tara's blog - Blondie n' SC. I fell in love with her writing, her style, everything! I had to read her whole entire blog from the beginning :) She actually inspired me to start a blog....

CUTE! I kept meaning to come over and enter this so I'm glad your reminded me to stop back by : ) The first blog I ever read was The Porch and Atelier (, because the owner's home was featured in Country Living magazine and they listed her blog for more details. When I visited, I had no idea what a "sidebar" was or why there were all sorts of other things listed there, but I happened to stumble from there to Round Barn Potting Company ( The rest is history! Those two blogs are still some of my favorites, and stores I'd love to visit some day.
Thanks for the giveaway!

The first blog I remember reading was a homeschool blog. I was thinking of homeschooling and had no idea what a blog was until I read about homeschooling blogs in a magazine. This was a way for me to connect with others who homeschool. I was thrilled to find all the creative blogs shortly after.

What a beautiful share. I love it. How kind of you to ask about our first blog that we visited. Mine would be my daughters, Fairy Footprints in the Sand. She so inspired me to create. She has since gone off to school and classes, and I find myself blogging even more. I thank her for the bug. She SO inspired me.

I love your gorgeous giveaway and I am so tickled to have found your beautiful blog home. I am Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next.

Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway opportunity, and congratulations on your wonderful blog stone accomplishment, your first year.

Many country hugs, Sherry
