Fopperies & Frivolities

Twitter

A lady living in Philadelphia; an ex-pat, an occasional artist; an enthusiastic but unskilled cook; a vintage lover; an aspiring crafter. Things that make my heart flutter: top hats, old silver candlesticks, costumes, books, Victoriana, peacock feathers, masks, stockings, burlesque, feminism, retro pin-ups, kitsch, fantasy, sci-fi, and all manner of misfits and oddities.

I blog about my Russian heritage, steampunk, Sherlock Holmes (in his multiple modern variations), art, pretty clothes, pretty ladies, and whatever tv shows catch my fancy.

I’m excited to have all of you as followers, and I wanted to thank you by doing a little secret give-away. Secret because I’m not saying what you’ll receive—I think it would be fun for it to be a surprise package.
I can, however, tell you that it will be an assortment of small items and trinkets related to the content of this blog. So, think Victorian, goth, steampunk, Russian, cute retro kitsch, and quaint old-timey stuffs.
Anyone who’s currently a follower can participate, whether you’re brand new (welcome!) or have been here for a while.
To enter, you just have to like this post.
That’s it—no need for reblogs (unless you really want to!). I’m not doing this to try and get more followers—this is to thank those of you who are already here. :) Plus I want the surprise package to go to someone who’s following me because they like my blog, not someone who signs on just to get free stuff.

Once all the likes are in, I will pick a winner by lottery system. Depending how many people participate, I will either use an online randomizer, or do it the old fashioned way by putting numbers in a hat and having a friend pick one. Then I will announce the winner and message them for their address.
**The deadline to participate in this give-away is October 31st.**
That’s pretty soon, but after all, all you have to do is click “like,” right? How easy is that!
The only rule is that after you receive the package, you have to take pictures of what’s inside and make a post on your own tumblr. :)
I hope a lot of you will decide to participate!
