Winners, Features, Favorites

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Greetings!  Oh what a week, are you caught up in the pre-Thanksgiving scramble?  Juggle juggle, balance, multitask, and a little more juggling, right?  Whew!  I’m looking forward to next week’s down time, just to sit around with family and friends, bake pies, peel potatoes, sample wines, and eat eat eat.  And maybe do some more eating.

Announcing the 3 winners of the Purple Lemon Designs giveaway!  Congratulations to:

#22: Kristin "Love the Medium Circles-n-Circles, which could be used all year round. I just moved to a new home so this would be great!"

#624: Shirley L.  "I shared on Twitter (I am @willowwhimsy)"

#748: Layla O.: "Oh I want one of these and was bummed not to have won last time, maybe this time. The wrought iron scroll would be great but any is fine by me."

‘Mom Cave’ Contest Winners

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

A very big thanks to all the ladies who sent in their submission for the HomeGoods ‘Mom Cave’ contest, via email or by linking to the party.  Let me tell you, it was excruciating, and I mean painful, trying to narrow it down to five winners, and then choose a top prize. 

It was such a delight reading each and every one of your entries.  The judges (Layla, Rhoda, and I) spent the weekend reviewing them.  I don’t think I’ll be volunteering to be a judge for anything anytime in the near future . . . it really was that difficult!  But after the votes were cast by three judges, and all criteria considered, it’s my pleasure to announce the following winners:

The top prize, the $250 HomeGoods gift card is awarded to, drumroll please . .

Gettin’ Cozy

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Oh, the weather outside is frightful . . . .  Well, actually, it’s not frightful at all, it’s rather delightful.  Shame on me for singing a holiday tune in October!   It’s the middle of fall y’all and getting a little chillier around here.  Time to bring out those knit scarves and cozy throw blankets to add a little style while still staying warm.

Today I’m talking about getting cozy with knits over at The Inspired Room in Melissa’s series 31 Days of Autumn Bliss.  I get to be Day 20, yippee that’s me!  C’mon over and say "Hi" why don’t ya, and take a peek at some of my favorite cozy knits this season.
