What Were You Doing in the Autumn of 1989??


A flickr friend (and jewellery designer featured in yesterday's Shopping List) vadjutka, is celebrating her Etsyversary!! To commemorate this exciting milestone, she is running a blog giveaway, the prize of which is a $20 gift certificate to treat yourself to something gorgeous from her store!

What do you need to do?
Vadjutka explains:

"This year will be the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain through Eastern-Europe, which includes Hungary. In the autumn of 1989, Hungary officially became a Republic, leaving its People's Republic form behind, and entered into the difficult life of democracies.

This is "big" history; but I am curious of the "small" one, the personal histories. So this is what you have to do to win this gift certificate: tell me what you did in the autumn of 1989 (and in which country)!"


Get your thinking caps on!! Can you remember?? Yes? Then quick, pop over to Vadjutka's blog now, and enter by leaving a comment here - before the competition closes on the 19th February...get your skates on!
