woohoo!!...it's POTTERY BARN giveaway time!




Ok, ok so I know I just did a Pottery Barn gift card giveaway a few months ago...but my hubs says I like to repeat myself..a lot...so I say lets do it again, shall we???

'Tis the season for nesting...making our homes cozy and organized...happy and warm and so much of my inspiration comes from one of my very favorite stores..Pottery Barn. 




If you have been reading my recent posts, you know last week was a little stressful for me. My Mom had surgery, and when I need to escape the hospital for a while I would go to my "happy place"...aka...the mall. I just need to get lost in "ideas" sometimes to clear my head. (Does that make any sense at all??) So, I would march through that mall entrance and straight to the wing with the Pottery Barn store.

I just love to soak it all in. The fabrics, the books, the displays...oh, and especially the furniture. I draw a lot of inspiration for my works from their beautiful pieces. Currently, I am obsessed with the lockers below...

 (a set of these are being constructed in my studio, as I type this. I am sooo stinkin' excited! Thank you, hubs!)

I admit, I am a handmade...vintage-loving....junk-hunting...build and paint my own furniture...kind of girl, but who doesn't love a little PB in their life??? So many great ideas and inspirations...I get lost in their stores and catalogs for hours!




So to say "thank you" to Pottery Barn for bringing me a little bit of 'happy' last week when I need it most...I am going to give one lucky reader a little bit of 'happy', too!

A $50 gift card to POTTERY BARN!



Here's what you gotta do to get your name in...I'll even give you a chance for extra credit, too!

1. Leave a comment on this post.

2. For a second entry, become a follower of my blog. (leave me a separate comment telling me you did.)

3. For a third entry, spread the love and blog about my giveaway or post it on your sidebar! (leave me a separate comment letting me know you did!)

Giveaway will close at midnight (central time zone) on Thursday Nov. 18th. Winner will be announced on Friday morning!

Good luck...and happy shopping!

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED.
