The Loose Goose Giveaway!

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

Can I just tell you how happy I am that it's cooling off outside? I had co-workers coming into work today saying that it was a little too cold for their taste. I, on the other hand, am feeling comfortable for the first time in 6 months. Hallelujah!

The cool weather reminded me that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and if you're anything like me, you've already started planning. If you're nothing like me, please, no judging, I know I have a problem...a holiday addiction. Regardless of whether you're a planner or a procrastinator, this giveaway is perfect for you!


The Loose Goose emphasizes vintage decor with a past. Nicole's items are classically chic and can be customized to any occasion. She explained to me that the term "loose goose" comes from the meaning that if you are loose, then you have a past, just like these items!

How cute is that?

What's even cuter are her items. She (primarily) sells personalized antique silverware and serveware on Etsy. It's perfect for weddings, holidays or to mark special occasions, and it's affordable!


We are so excited to be giving away this gorgeous *Vintage Silver Plated Hand Stamped Thanksgiving Serving Fork & Spoon with a Lady Doris 1929 pattern, just in time for Thanksgiving. To enter, all you need to do is answer this question in the comments section below:

Be honest...what's your least-favorite dish that someone always shows up to Thanksgiving dinner with? The one that they insist you "take two bites of and you'll be hooked" and you actually never get hooked on.

The deadline is Sunday, October 14th at 5pm. Please leave your email address with the comment.

The winner will be selected randomly using random.org. Good luck, and don't forget to drop by The Loose Goose shop!

Love and cute things,


-->
-->
*Fork: 8 1/4"
Spoon: 8 1/4".
Hand Stamped "bless us & give thanks
You will receive the exact items shown.
Due to the size of these items they will be wrapped in tissue paper with a lovely coordinating ribbon. Please understand that silver plate flatware has a past. This means there are imperfections that represent the traces of history. I carefully select pieces that are beautifully designed and have a pleasing patina.

  4. Sweet potato pie. Not that sweet potato pie itself is bad, but it can LOOK a lot like pumpkin pie. And nothing's more disappointing than taking a bite, expecting pumpkin-flavored goodness, and getting something completely different. ;-(

  5. My Grandma's "Frog-Eye Salad" made with Acini Di Pepe Pasta. Not so yummy!

  37. My aunts stuffing. She adds carrots, celery and chop meat to it. That's not stuffing. Plain stuffing from a box is what I enjoy. I always take a few bites to make her happy but ugghhh.... Not good.

  48. My least fav is this nasty green bean casserole my (beloved) elderly relative makes. I'm not sure what's in it, as it's an utter mishmash of flavors and textures spoiling perfectly lovely green beans. But I love the cook so I choke it down every year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. It would have to be really milky potato salad, the person who makes it has no restraint with ingredients. ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh boy! Shuckins. I'd say probably the turkey and the pie. I'm not big on dessert anyway, and it seems like the turkey is always too dry. Though I love dark meat....white meat isn't that great!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I favorited Loose Goose's Etsy shop. How adorable! I'm going to add her to this week's Handmade Roundup on my blog. :D

  61. Stuffing.
    I absolutely loathe stuffing. Every year, a different relative makes it. They always tell me it's so delicious and has wonderful flavor, and I really should try it.
    No. I hate stuffing. I appreciate that they want to share, but I really wish they wouldn't.

  101. Canned cranberry sauce is just horrible...I mean, if it's not jello or jelly, food shouldn't look like that, and it just tastes bad.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Some disgusting jello type mushy mess. Also while I love sweet potatoes, I despise them when they are loaded with marshmallows or other sugary stuff or in a pie- I think they are extremely sweet on their own and my teeth literally hurt when I try to eat them with the sweetened toppings.

    ReplyDelete
  103. That's a hard question because I like EVERYTHING. I usually pass by jello salads though.
