The Pleated Poppy {GIVEAWAY}

EDIT: 10-9-2009 This Giveaway is now closed

I am DE-light-ED to share the SPARKLIG NEWS of a giveaway on my blog from The Pleated Poppy's online store. Lindsey has a full variety of fun treasures to eye...from tea towels to headbands!



AND...If you're reading this, YOU have a chance to win a set of her posy pins. She hand makes EACH one and offers them in a variety of fabrics choices. Visit her store to see all of your choices! They are absolutely adorable!











It's the beautiful details {like these} in life that add that little bit of extra joy to our moments, minutes, and days. In your rushed life of coffee stops and traffic jams what beautiful things do you do to charm your life?

I believe that is the question I started asking myself as I delved into the world of blogging. Because of this, I decided to take back the precious minutes of my time and add some delight to our moments. Many blogs have been chock full of inspiration on how to accomplish this, and it has been truly inspirational.


Lindsey, at The Pleated Poppy also has a blog (click here) that is simply amazing! I often run into blog treasures like these that make me super excited to propel forward with fresh ideas! In fact, I am working RIGHT NOW on a project (I will share with all you lovelies soon) that I found on her blog. I am so grateful to all of these inspirations that I co
me across!
PS...Lindsey has 3 kids just like me! ;)


OKAY, GIVEAWAY INFO!

To enter, easily leave a comment below. If you don't have a blog, just leave your email address and you're done. AND that is it! You're in for the win.

BUT....
if you want extra entries...
1) follow my blog
2) tweet about it
3) put it on your blog (sidebars work!)
4) Share it on Facebook


If you do any of the extra things above for extra entries, leave a separate comment for EACH way you spread the word and provide the link!
Each extra way you enter, will increase your chances of winning by putting your name in again for every way you enter.

The Winner will be drawn (using Random Sequence Generator) on Oct 9th and it may just be YOU. ;)


Finding Inspiring Blogs is what actually Works for Me this week! I am amazed at how many ideas and tips I have learned from being involved in the blog world. For more ideas, click here.

Share your creative ideas with me too on how you can use these posies! As a gift topper, in a ponytail, on a photo frame, on napkin rings, on a backpack...what else? I would love to hear YOUR ideas...
