Here's the Loot! I am thrilled to give away this assortment of goodies, see the pretty tote in the back there. Ooooeeeee, so exciting! Read on...
There are so many things to celebrate here I decided to roll them all into one big ol' Celebration Giveaway Extravagan-ZA! First of all, today is my 31st birthday. Hooray! I am happy to be alive and healthy and I am hopeful for a spectacular year!
Second, I have officially opened my Etsy shop. I do hope you'll come visit me there.
Hooray again!! The "Plus 2" is to honor my two fantastically frilly daughters. Haha! The first items I have listed are really fun totes like this one I made specifically to give away here. Right now, the shop is a tad bit empty, but I couldn't resist revealing it as soon as possible. Don't fret, I will be adding many more FRILLY FROUFY items soon, so be sure to check back when you can.
This tote is made from a heavyweight canvas-type material which I tea-dyed, washed then line dried. Smells so yummy off the line, love that! (Took all of 5 minutes in the 114 degree heat yesterday.) I added these handmade fabric flowers.
And some really lovely laces. The taupe-y colored lace goes around the back also. A new applique I scored recently, I love how it looks like a medalion.
Add all that together and it makes for a great tote. I made myself a pink one that I simply LOVE, perfect with my everyday jeans and white tee.
Here are some closeups of the rest of the items in the Giveaway:
And last but not least, my favorite reason to celebrate... YOU! I have reached almost 100 followers. Triple Hooray!!!
