100th post ~ its giveaway time!

Happy Monday, ladies!

Hope you had a wonderful summer weekend! I am so excited today because we are honoring a milestone here at Urban Farmgirl!

This is officially my 100th post!

And what good is a milestone without a celebration, right??

When I started this blog, I was pretty confident no one would be reading.


 I figured it would feed my obsession with decorating and houses...maybe be a little outlet for my furniture painting business...and that would be as far as it would go. I never dreamed I would find such a wonderful group of girls out there that shared my love of all things vintage and white...junking and photography! In my little corner of the world, I have always been the only girl that decorated with white...and "old stuff" as my friends call it was amazing to find so many of you that share the love!

Not only am I celebrating my 100th post, I am celebrating you. The girls I wake up to each and every day. I have been in your homes, I have met your family...some of you I feel I know better than people I see in person every single day! Isn't this crazy blog world awesome? A year ago I never imagined any of this was possible!

To celebrate, I would love to invite you all over for brunch...or for dinner at my favorite little bistro in town...or for a day spent 'urban farmgirl style' (which means hitting every junking spot within a 50-mile radius of my house)...but since life and logisitics get in the way of any of about a giveaway??

Better yet, a giveaway to one of my favorite places. Ever.

White Flower Farmhouse

One of you ladies will be the lucky winner of a $50 gift certificate to spend on anything you would like over at!

Their shop is amazing! It's a little farmhouse...a little beachy...a little cottage garden. Here are a few of my favorite things...

Handpainted signs on old wood...I actually have one hanging over me where I am typing this right now!

They have ironstone...and farm tables...and painted furniture, too! (Isn't that table just awesome!!??)

Wait - did I just say ironstone?? Let me say it again...because it is my favorite! about some green glass bottles...and of course an old wire basket to put them in !

And the rugs??? Oh man, the rugs. They are Dash & Albert of course! I would be happy to take one in every color!

I love, love, love the soaps, too! Don't they make a lovely statement together like this?...reminds me of beach glass!
