A Guest Post and Many Thanks

A Guest Post and Many Thanks

I’m excited to be guest posting today at one of the most charming reads I’ve come across….
If you haven’t read Allison’s blog, you must.
It’s packed full with endearing family adventures and plenty of gorgeous inspiration.
Allison always has her eye on the most fashionable kids’ goodies around and makes sure to include plenty of pretty for us grown ups too.
She’s also one of my go to resources for books and art.
And, she pretty much had me at hello with that beauteous pink and black modern chic header.
Here’s a little taste.
Oh and PS, she can take a mean photograph too.
As for me and the post, I’m showcasing my favourite things about my home.
Clicksy here if you’d like to have a little peak.
In other news, I wanted to take a minute to thank a few people who have put a smile on my face these past few weeks.
To start, a giant thank you so Nichole over at one of my most beloved blogs, Parlour.
Nichole posted a little feature on my home and it couldn’t have been sweeter.
Thank you to Nichole for always being such a supportive blogger- I’m so happy to know you.
And PS, if you haven’t seen Nichole’s home, you  must click over.
Ridiculously good.

I’d also like to thank the very talented Jennifer over at Rambling Renovators.

Rambling Renovators

She included me in her Great Reads Year End Blog Tour series and I couldn’t have been more honoured.
I am always inspired by Jennifer’s blog and am totally in awe of her beautifully renovated home.
I’ve actually met Jennifer in person and she is one one of the sweetest people you could hope to meet.

Next, I’d like to thank all of these lovely ladies for hosting such fabulous giveaways that I just happened to have won.
I swear to god, I have never in my whole life won anything.  I always pick the wrong side of the coin and am annoyingly unlucky…until now.
If you can believe it, I’ve won a total of 6 giveaways and 5 have been in the last two weeks!

{and PS, I seem to be channelling Marilyn this week;}

If you knew me, you would truly understand how crazy this is.
So…thank you (in no particular order) to:
Betsy over at Cool Kids.
I won a $30 gift certificate to a fabulous shop called Ooh La Lollipop on Etsy.
I’m going to use my credit to buy this adorable hostess play set for my daughter’s 5th birthday coming up in April.
Little Hostess in Training Package / Felt cupcakes, cookies, placemats, jewelry and MORE
A thank you as well to the fabulous Trina over at La La Lovely
la la Lovely
I won her HeirBloom giveaway and am awaiting this little pretty.
I actually entered this giveaway in hopes of winning this for a very special woman in my life and I can’t wait to present it to her.
Next, thank you to Wendy at Desire to Decorate.
Desire to Decorate
From her, I won this beautiful set of 5 Christmas cards from Etsy’s FreshCrop.
I used these for my daughter’s teachers and their holiday gifts.

And while we’re on the stationary theme, a big thank you to Debby at Inspired Design.
I just found out yesterday that I was the lucky winner of her naomilynn stationary giveaway.
I’ll be happily receiving 16 of these pretties soon…only in pink with my name on them!
These lovely cards will take the belated place of the Christmas cards I neglected to send.  Instead, all those special people in my life will be getting a ‘welcome to the New Year’ and ‘thank you for being you just because’ card.

And last but certainly not least, thank you to Paloma over at the very fabulous
La Dolce Vita.
I was so excited when I found out that I had won a copy of Debra Shriver’s Stealing Magnolia’s.
I can’t wait to read the tales from a New Orlean’s courtyard!
All in all, I would definitely say hooray…luck has turned on my side it seems:)
And lastly, two more hugs.
First, a warm thanks to the most fabulous Amanda over at
Recycled Consign and Design.
She has always been so sweetly supportive of my blog and was kind enough to award me with this…
 Takes one to know one I would say Amanda.
And thanks for the same designation from Tamara over at Memory Bean Designs.
Very appreciated!!!
As you can see, I’m one blessed girl.
I know I’ve said it before but this whole blogging thing has enriched my days more than I can say and I have all of you to thank for it.

PS, since was a rather long post, I’m giving you a reminder of the guest post so you don’t have to scroll all the way back up if you’d like to link over.
