1:12 scale Old rusty keys giveaway.

Today is my birthday, I am thirty years old today! Panicking, slightly, which I believe is normal and will pass :D

Anyway, to celebrate, I am doing a giveaway. I've decided to give away three sets of keys, as I am three decades old, and the blog is just over three years old, so it's quite fitting.

I am doing a post about the making of these keys, I just need a few more photos, before it goes on the blog. A gas soldering iron was involved and a cautionary tale to go with it, nothing too serious, just plain stupidity.......

The keys have a rusty brown colour in reality. My camera decided not to show that, at all, as it preferred a monochrome look :D You can just about make out the rust........I think! 

Giveaway rules:-

  • You must be a follower of this blog.
  • Leave a comment to enter (if you aren't entering, please do not leave a comment, this will only confuse me later :D ).
  • State your preference of keys, beginning with your favourite set and ending with least favourite, ie. 1.a, 2.c, 3.b, first being your favourite, third being your least favourite. I like A best. :D
  • Worldwide giveaway - anyone from anywhere in the world can enter.

When I draw the names, the first person will receive their favourite set, second will receive their favourite of the two sets left over, and third will receive the last remaining set. So please remember to state your preference, otherwise you will get whichever set is left over, which is fine if you don't mind or can't choose between them.

Last day for entering the giveaway will be the 31st of May 2014, the winners will be announced on the 1st of June 2014.

Each set has a fancy "Irish shamrock-esque" trefoil key and three plain keys, on a ring. The keys are not removable, but you can easily snip the ring, to remove the keys if desired.

Good Luck and thanks for entering :)


  1. These are just wonderful! The rust just adds such a realistic look to the keys. Thank you for this chance to win a set of them. XXX

    I adore your keys......I too love "a", but it was hard to chose between them all.
    Have a great day!

  7. Happy Birthday! I loved my 30s, enjoy them.
    I like all the key sets, I can't choose a favorite either.

  8. Joyeux anniversaire Sarah !

    Pour l 'instant, je ne peux pas mettre le lien sur mon blog, mon ordinateur est en réparation, je suis sur mon smartphone.
    Bisous. Rosethé

  9. Happy Birthday! I like all the key sets. I can´t choose a favourite either. It would be nice, to win the keys. I live in Finnland and have followed your blog a long time.

  10. Happy Birthday! I should say belated since it is the 16th here =)

    Can't wait to see the tutorial for this. I have been trying to figure out how to find keys small enough for 1/12 scale. I think B would have to be my favourite.

    Have made some skeins from your embroidery silks tutorial and love them <3

    I was following via Bloglovin' but followed via Blogger as well just in case =p


  11. Happy happy happy 30th birthday !
    And thanks for this cute giveaway. Your keys are so nice !
    Please count me in. I put a link on my blog.
    It's difficult to choose between them. Nevertheless, here's my choice :
    1 c 2 a 3 b


  12. Buongiorno, Sarah! Ma come sei giovane! Goditi questo traguardo! Ricordo i miei trent'anni, ora che ne ho quindici di più, come il mio periodo di "grande bellezza". :-)
    Trovo che tutto quello che fai, con la tua straordinaria manualità, sia assolutamente perfetto! Mi piacciono tutte le tue chiavi, ma se dovrei proprio dare una preferenza, preferisco quelle alla lettera C. Per il resto, sarei comunque felice di ricevere in dono qualsiasi cosa fatta da te. Come sarei onorata di ricevere un pacchetto che viene da Belfast! Grazie per l'opportunità, allora! A presto!!!

  13. Happy (belated) birthday Sarah, I hope you had a very nice birthday with lots of presents ;)?
    You spoil us with these gorgeous keys, they are really a feast for the eyes. Knowing that there will be a tutorial about how to make them, that would be so kind of you. Because I have a big canal house with lots of old doors which are waiting for these sort of keys....:D LOL!!
    The keys are all fabulous, it is hard to chose for me, but my choice would be: 1 c, 2 a, 3 b!
    Please, count me in, I'll put the link on my blog.

  39. Happy Birthday, oh to be 30 again. I was 30 30 years ago! I just discovered your blog on the Mitchy Moo blog. I have just signed up to follow you. I'm not sure how I have not come across your blog sooner. I am going to make a cup of tea and get comfortable for an evening of reading your blog. It looks like you have lots of goodies in the tutorial section and it is nice to see that they don't require a lot of specialized tools or materials. The only chance I have to purchase from a shop is when I attend a show. There aren't any stores close to where I live. I love the keys and would like a chance to win (my maiden name was Keyes - pronounced keys)! 1st choice = B, 2nd = A, 3rd = C. Hard to pick a favorite as they are all lovely. Enjoy your birthday.....Penny
