The Giveaway is now closed.
Hi Beautiful Friends,
I can't believe I am FINALLY composing my 100th post. YAY! First, I'd like to acknowledge some pretty wonderful people I've met through blogging. You are all awesome, but these gals have given me presents recently, so I do need to give them a special shout out!
I won a fabulous giveaway over at Paula's Castles and Cottages. She hand paints these beautiful Pottery Barn inspired plant holders which she made (or maybe DH made them, I can't remember), available in two sizes, and personalizes them with whatever your heart desires in whatever font you would like. She generously gave away the smaller one (which is still a substantial size) and personalized it to my specifications. After a few mock ups back and forth via email, I got this incredible piece in the mail. It is WONDERFUL. I haven't decided on its final hanging place, so I have used Paula's pic that she took when she finished it for me, but you will see this beauty again once it is hung (I'm very slow at making up my mind) and has something cool in its little holder. THANK YOU Paula from the bottom of my heart. You are incredibly talented and you'd better believe I will be coming by your way should I have any signage needs (and I'm thinking I just may).
Next, I was fortunate enough to win a sweet little giveaway over at Rhonda's place, A Little Bit French. She is a very talented lady as well who hosts a monthly French Friday giveaway. March was MY MONTH! Those of you who read my previous post about never winning anything will note that perhaps my luck did indeed change. Yippee! I hope so. Anyway, this precious little bag came my way last week. I absolutely love it. THANK you Rhonda! Rhonda is headed to France in 11 days, so I'm going to refrain from being green with envy in light of your beautiful tresor you sent me! LOL!
Lastly, I participated in the Pay It Forward project that I read about over at Michelle's beautiful blog, Petite Michelle Louise. I was one of 5 commenters to her blog who were sent this beautiful handmade stamped seam binding by Michelle. In return, each of us "paid it forward" by blogging about the project and sending a handmade gift to our first five commenters. (And BTW, if you were one of my 5 commenters, your tresors are on the way as of Monday. Hope you like them).
Inside was this darling card. There was also a pretty little hand stamped bag tucked in the back which had beautiful punches from old ephemera-I look forward to crafting with them, but I forgot to take a picture of them. Trust me, they are wonderful as well.
THANK YOU, Michelle! You know I'm a huge fan of yours anyway, but your generous spirit is something I'm also a fan of.
Okay, now if you've stuck with me this far, it is time for us to get to the GIVEAWAY which will commemorate my 100th post. First, I will send you a pretty little lavender sachet, handcrafted by moi.
I may eventually add some of these to my Etsy shop, but my kiddos are on Spring Break this week, so probably not until next week.
THEN, the piece de resistance....your very own copy of Fifi's new book, Romantic Prairie Style!!!! I had pre-ordered mine AGES ago but I have to confess, the hype that was swirling around Blogland made me skeptical...you know, like when EVERYONE tells you how great a movie is or is going to be and you go and see it and you think...it's OKAY. Too much build up, ya know? Or maybe that's just me. So, anyway, I kind of thought it might be like that. AND, I have to say, over here at French Laundry, my style is a little more fancy than what I perceived the prairie style to be, so I figured it would be a bunch of interiors that maybe I didn't totally relate to. Alright, all of that being said, when the book came, I was BLOWN AWAY! Yeah, it's that good. Not only are some of the ladies I've been
