I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Cyndi! I've never been tagged before, so I really don't know how to react. I have to share 7 things about myself, some random and some weird. This is hard--most of the random, weird things I know are about my family..........
1. I love history, and have worked for several years at a living history museum. I took a couple of years off, but am going back next month. I enjoy spending my days in 1875.
2. I know how to make jewelry from hair, and to cook on a woodstove. (See #1)
3.My maternal grandmother had 5 children. My mother has 5 children. I have 5 children. All are grown now
4.I collect gypsy items. Pictures, books, advertisements, cards, clothespins, fortune telling items, dolls, caravans, etc.
5. I've believed in reincarnation ever since I read "The Search for Bridey Murphy" when I was twelve.
6.Everything I do takes longer than I think it will.
7.I've lived in the same zipcode for most of my life.
Well, that's pretty random.
Now, for seven other bloggers.
1. Rowan Willow
2.The Marmelade Gypsy
3.Vintage Moon
4.Gypsy Wagon
5.Calamity Kim
6.Gypsy Froggie
7.Purple Majic
I can't say that I really know a lot of bloggers (or that they know me), but these are some that I enjoy reading
Have fun with this.

One World One Heart Winners

We have our winners! I'll be sending a bottle of GypsyWoman's Wishes to Lisa OceanDreamer and another bottle to Staci Rose !!! They'll go out on Monday. If anyone out there would like some sample Wishes, just send me an email with your address. I also have them for sale at or on Etsy.
I will miss having all these visitors. Hope some of you come back again.
Well, it's time for bed for me. I'll be back later today with some pictures (finally) and news about the drawings that I won.
Thank you Lisa for all that you did. This was phenomenal. I'll be reading new blogs forever. There are so many that looked fascinating.

I Won Something!!!

Kari at ArtsyMama held a drawing and I won! The prize is a goodie bag from Anthropologie (so, who wouldn't love it). I'll post when it comes. I was so excited I emailed her twice, thinking maybe she wouldn't recognize the different addy. Kari's is one of my favorite blogs. She was the hostess for the Valentine Supplies Swap. She's had several others, but this is the first I got in on. You have to move quickly for these things. Anyway, I am thrilled. It was a good day for me. I won something and got a job offer-more on that later.
Well, isn't this One World drawing just turning into the biggest thing ever. I do hope some of these people come back and visit me again and that I can get some visitors to my little blog in "real time". I've been trying to keep track of where I've been, but it gets confusing. I participated in this last year, but it was much smaller. Last year I didn't win anything, but I found all sorts of new places to visit, so that made it more than worthwhile. Thank you Lisa for all this hard work you've been doing. This was truly an inspiration.

Valentine Swap

Here's the box I mailed to Elizabeth for ArtsyMama's swap. Got it out today which was the duedate. I swear, I am never early with anything. I think it has some fun things in it. Ribbons, lace, charms, butttons, trim, beads, stickers, and Wishes I hope she enjoys it. I hope it doesn't arrive all jumbled.

One World One Heart


Here's my give-a-way. Just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered in to the drawing for one of my Wish Bottles. Wishes are magical little messages to brighten your day. Each bottle contains up to fifty quotes, thoughts, sayings, and things that I just make up. The bottle also includes a fairy wand to help you get your Wishes back into the bottle. Remember, just leave me a note, and on February 14, maybe I'll pick you!
UPDATE: I decided to add another bottle and have two drawings. What would the VictorianGypsy's blog be without a bottle of her GypsyWoman's Wishes, I ask you!! When you win you can choose either style. Here's what the tag says on this one: To know the present, See the Past, and Foretell the Future.
Good luck and good fortune!
