Visual Vamp Gives Back: The Yellow Foo Dog

via The Bohemian Luxe Life


This year has been an embarrassment of riches. So many good things have come to Alberto and me, many of them given to us by bloggers and readers.

I make no secret of not being a Spring decor chick. I have been collecting decorative things for many many years. At this point in life I start to think about who I would leave most of this stuff to. None of it is really valuable money wise, but perhaps meaningful to kindred spirits. None of the family seems much interested in the quirky accumulations of this old vamp, so I have decided to give it away to you my fellow visual vamps, scamps, decor demons, and cohorts.

All you have to do is leave me a comment. I'll randomly pick one, and send you this week's give-back, a yellow Foo dog. My Foo dog is in the English style, a lovely little porcelain. It's a mama Foo holding a basket of her pups in her mouth. It's not terribly valuable, but it is sweet.
If you win, I will also pay the shipping.

I will do a Visual Vamp Gives Back every week, so check back regularly.

And thank you all for a fabulous year.

Lovely, really lovely to know that one of your treasures will be given-away! I know that from giving a little, so much comes back. Your actions speak voumes about you and your kind heart.

I love your blog and what a fabulous idea to have the giveaway. I am in my early 60's and a collector. Although I try to tweak I have some things I just can't get rid of or even give to my sons. (They can't use any of it) So now I'm thinking, yes, a giveaway, what could be better. Thanks for the tip!

Aw, this is so great Valorie. What a lovely giveaway. I've got a thing for foos...and yours is wonderful and so unique. I don't think I've ever seen a maternal foo. How unusual. I love it!

Happy 2011!

What a wonderful idea, Valorie! I feel like I should do that as well, a little bit of winter cleaning around my house that may find a loving home :)

Cheers!
