faded plains...and the PB giveaway winner!!



One of my very favorite friends is having a giveaway this week!

Andrea, from Faded Plains



One lucky reader is going to take home a soft & cozy scarf made with lots of love by Miss Faded Plains herself! Isn't that the best gift ever...to keep a friend warm on the coldest of winter days??

This year, she is making her Christmas a 'handmade christmas'....and she has inspired me to do the same! By the time I was done talking to her the other day, she had inspired plans for me to make my sisters-in-law gifts this year. Isn't that a fantastic idea? It really brings you back to the spirit of giving, and I know they are going to love something handmade so much more than anything else I could buy them.

But, I know not all of us are crafty, or we just simply don't have the time to make the things we love so I am going to mention this, too. Shhhhh....I didn't tell Andrea I was going to pass this on to you guys...but she has an Etsy shop AND a website that is worth telling the world about! If you, or someone you love, LOVES vintage...you just have to see her shops. They are AMAZING!!



So, if you have not done it yet...pop over to Andrea's blog...get your name in her giveaway and take a little peek at her Etsy shop and website while you are there!

Oh, and I am sure everyone is wondering who the lucky winner of the $50 Pottery Barn giftcard giveaway was. So, without further adieu...

CONGRATULATIONS, DENISE...from PINK POSTCARD!


Email me, Denise! And get out your Pottery Barn catalog and start circling things!

THANK YOU to everyone that entered! 840 comments...I seriously could not believe it! I wish I had a giftcard to give to each and every one of you! Thank you for taking time out of your life to visit my little blog even when I am not having a giveaway and I am rambling on about daily life! It means so much...you have no idea!

Happy Weekend, everyone!

  24. I am planning some homemade gifts this year too. I always do MY Favorites of the year for my sisters and it is such fun. I don't do it as extravagant as Oprah but it is usually a good haul :) Have a great Thanksgiving. How's your mom? I am still praying for her. xoxo
