Jewelry GIVEAWAY: The Vintage Pearl

Friday, April 1st, 2011

67Greetings and happy weekend y’all!  Announcing the winner of the last giveaway with Kelly + Olive.  Congratulations to #67 Larissa who wrote:

“The room that I would love to get some direction and insight on is my bedroom.  The space is great with large windows and great views, but my current decorating is lacking in everything.  I would love the opportunity to get some professional help”  Congrats Larissa, can’t wait to see the full room design! 

Today, because it’s spring, and because Mother’s Day is five weeks away and you best be thinking about Mom!!!  I’m thinking about you too, so I’m bringing you a timely giveaway from my longtime sponsor The Vintage Pearl.  Last year, I bought my own mom the Circle of Love bracelet and she loves it!  It’s the only keepsake she has with her four children’s names on it, what Mom doesn’t want one of those? 

The Vintage Pearl is a great source for the prettiest hand stamped sterling silver jewelry and keepsakes.  In fact, VP has the PW seal of approval, how cool is that?  Take a peek at this small sampling of the pieces available for babies, teachers, grandmothers, sisters, friends, and even dudes.

DIY: Patchwork Picnic Blanket

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

I’ve had this vision in my head for months now, a vision of crafting a picnic blanket that we could bring on our outdoor adventures, something with a country feel, but with fresh modern color too.  We’re a picnicking tribe on the weekends when sunny skies appear, whether we head to the coast, the local park or ballgame, or just movies in the park.  Having a cozy picnic blanket is always ideal!
