My First Giveaway


Happy Valentine's Day, dear friends. Since it's the season of love, I wanted to let you all know how much I LOVE you, and how thankful I am for you. Each and every one of you special ladies (and guys?) makes doing what I love possible... which is blogging about decor, shopping, pretty things, vintage finds and just life.

It's only because of YOU that I can be here, and have someone to ramble on to : ) Seriously, blogging has become more than a hobby and has turned into a passion, and it's amazing people like you that I get to "meet" here in blogland that make it so special. So thank you, thank you thank you, from the bottom of my little vintage-loving heart.

And I do want to say a special thank you to my first followers, my mom, my fiance, my best friend Meg, and my soon-to-be-mother-in-law. They have been my biggest fans and cheered me all along the way. I love you all! : )

Thank You Giveaway
Ok, enough with the mushy stuff, on to the PRIZES! To say thank you to everyone in blogland and especially my followers, I wanted to offer the chance to win some special things. One lucky winner will receive...


1. A scalloped white footed bowl from Pier 1

2. A bundle of dried lavender

3. Atlanta Bartlett's book At Home with White

4. A little handmade, hand stamped lavender sachet (from this etsy shop)

5. A set of my favorite flour sack tea towels


6. A bottle of my favorite lotion, Watkins Apothecary Lavender Body Lotion

I didn't really mean for the whole thing to be lavender/white themed, but I guess that's what happens when those are two things you love : )

And, there's a second prize to win! I'm at 89 followers as of today, and whoever becomes my 100th follower will get a special surprise gift sent to them in the mail.

How to Enter
1. Become a follower, or tell me you're already a follower.
2. Leave a comment... any comment. If you want you can tell me what you're most looking forward to about spring : )
3. Blog, facebook or tweet about the giveaway (leave a separate comment for each for more chances to win).
4. Put the giveaway button on your sidebar.

Please leave a separate comment for each entry, complete with your e-mail address (if you don't have a blog) so I can contact you if you win. The giveaway will close next Sunday, February 20.


There you have it! That's six chances to win all the giveaway goodies + an extra if you become my 100th follower! I'm rooting for you all and want to thank you again for blessing my life with your (virtual) presence. Each and every comment makes my day, and I've loved getting to know you all!

Good luck!

{live beautifully}
Courtney
