Vintage flower frog giveaway



In honor of the arrival of spring and in a shameless bid to acquire more followers, Bromeliad Living is hosting its first giveaway - Frogs for Blogs. The winner will receive two vintage floral frogs, pictured below. One frog is grid style and other smaller frog is needle style.



In addition to holding your flowers straight, floral frogs have also been put to use as pencil holders and paper organizers, as Martha Stewart does below.



You can even make a weird spring veggie centerpiece, as I did, with a grid-style frog and lots of asparagus.


To enter, you'll need to be a follower of this blog and leave a comment below. To double your chances, leave a comment at my article for examiner.com about vintage floral frogs. Both frogs are circa World War I. In the interests of full disclosure, the grid frog has a slight dent in one side. (Hey, it's free.)

  2. Awesome! These are *beautiful* - strange, antiquey, industrial, delicate. Hmmm.

  10. I discovered you through YHL, I read you daily, and I would probably accept to pay for international shipping if I win those strange things. All because I like your sense of humour.
