Giveaway Today and Lovely Displays!

navy blue crochet girl toddler child flower beanie

I am starting off the week with a giveaway. Today's cute little gift is from my Aunt Cindy. She is a professional seamstress, and she has even worked on ballets, theatre productions and movie sets (the most recent being High School Musical 3) and she is an expert at period costuming. She has a couple of Etsy shops, Twigs Boutique, hip and trendy clothes for kids and Twirls Boutique, tutus, and other girly things.

This navy blue crochet beanie has a detachable cream flower that can also be worn alone as a clip. It can fit a toddler, on up (it even fits me, though I have a little head!) To be considered for the giveaway, please check out one of her shops and link to your favorite item and why.

If you purchase an item you will get 2 chances to win! Just link back with the item after you purchased it for the extra entry.

Also, I have found some cute Valentine printable freebies for you to enjoy (don't forget to click of the images for a zoom view).

The first is HERE at the wonderful Fanciful Twist (wonderful shop and blog. And the second is here... I for the LIFE of me can't remember where I got this, so PLEASE if you remember or it is you, let me know so I can give a credit!

And wow, I found this uncredited image the other day of a little boutique, and I just had to post it, b/c it is gorgeous and inspiring! As a stylist, I always wanted to own a salon, that offered smoothies, salads and other goodies with a computer bar and pool table and of course, an activity room for weekly classes like yoga, karate, art, and other things, similar to the vision that Noelle Spa has created. However, knowing how difficult and stressful (though rewarding) running a high end salon would be, I would love to settle for a sweet boutique... one day. Here are some inspirational spaces.



And look at this space! Brown Eyes Blue is a salon/upscale boutique, read about it HERE.


Cinderella Window Display from HERE ps, go search Flickr for "Cinderella Display" and you will find some gorgeous images! This display reminds me of my college days. Our laundry room had a huge box for donation/junk clothing, and we always thrifted from there since they never collected the clothes. We once found a horrid vintage wedding dress and we hung it on our living room wall, to threaten the boys that came by I suppose to not mess with us!

Former boutique from Posie Gets Cozy


One last thing. I love to share treats, but my recipes/photos of such are not so nice. The treats we made this week were S'mores, by roasting the marshmallows on fork tines over a hot oven burner, not so fancy (but oh so yummy). So I am going to share these yummy Chocolate Orange desserts from April's Flowers, recipe found HERE!
