Along with sewing for myself, I decided it was time to treat myself to few somethings. Not only did I get to support some great bloggers and handmade in general, I got some pretty awesome items.
Those items include a beautiful, simplistic note card from Mindee Photographee (shop and blog)—which is so pretty I doubt I’ll have the nerve to ever write in. It may just reside on my inspiration wire for a little while. You should definitely check out her shop, she takes amazing photos.
As a brunette, I may be considered a traitor for picking out a blonde doll from Threaded Basil (shop and blog) but I fell in love with her cute yellow dress and her beret. I also realize she is probably intended for a little girl but, hey, I’m still a kid at heart. I can’t decide whether or not to call her Cecile or Francoise.
And the third item was a super sweet button necklace from Field Wonderful (shop and blog) aptly named First Snowfall. I’m not really a big wearer of necklaces unless I *really* love them. Usually I just wear big earrings. But Allison really sold this item, placing it on the rocks all pretty like—definitely caught my eye. And I’m happy to say it looks even prettier on a human neck.
When I was carrying the package in from the mailbox, I figured there was either an extra something in the envelope or those buttons were heavy. Luckily it was the former. I opened it to find one of Allison’s crochet covered rocks! It’s so beautiful.
I’m super happy with all of my purchases. And I can’t recommend enough checking out their shops or blogs!
Thank you all for participating here. I’m honored and floored that so many of you were interested in this little make-up bag!
I went with random.org to choose the winning comment number. Apparently the way WordPress numbers the comments here is from the very start of the blog. So the giveaway post comments ranged from numbers 268 to 799!
And the winning comment is…
Congrats to Jacquie of Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree! I’ll send you your congratulatory email ASAP. You have 24 hours to reply back to me; otherwise I’ll redraw the number and pick a new winner tomorrow.
Thanks again, everyone. :) There will be future giveaways, for sure.
