Laura's Favorite Things giveaway.

This marks my 200th post! I think it is time to celebrate by sharing a few of my favorite things.
Polly from Counting Your Blessings always has the most ingenious ideas for repurposing things. Her Friday Flea Markets are fabulous. One of my favorite things are the Victorian styled wallets she creates from vintage fabrics.




Cerri from Little Pink Studio sells the most fun and original things. Her original works of art are magical. I love her buttons, but my favorite thing is the vending machine plastic bubble that is filled with vintage bits and bobs of fantastic fun.



Andrea at Velvet Strawberries is just lovely. Her blog is lovely. Her store is lovely. She herself has kindness and talent wrapped up in one big silk bow. Her shop, One Hundred Wishes, is filled with frothy goodness. I love the Coccoina glue. I will not use anything else. But my favorite things are her ribbon and millinery. It is such wonderful quality.



Heather at Present Past Collection is another favorite of mine. Her blog provides such creative inspiration. She is such a wonderful photographer. Seemingly everyday events become priceless bits of beauty when captured by her lens. Her store is currently being restocked and I am checking daily to see when it reopens.


Is there anyone who inspired you to begin blogging? For me it was Candice at Peacoats and Party Hats. Back in January of 2008 I was in a serious creative funk. I attended one of Candice's scrap booking and crafting events: a vintage valentine banner. During the course of the evening my creative spirit was restored. I shared with her how much I loved to scrapbook but that in this season of my life I don't have much time to do it. She told me to upload my photos to a blog (what's that? :) and jot down thoughts so that when I was ready to scrapbook, none of the memories would be forgotten. And so I began my little blog, thinking it was only for myself. Now here I am 200 posts and many new friends later.

For those of you who cannot attend one of Candice's events, she sells the kits (with detailed instructions) in her shop. They are sooooooo wonderful. I love this recent party hat kit.

Now here's the fun part. To celebrate my 200th post I am giving away one of Polly's wallets, a magical plastic bubble filled with delights by Cerri, some yummy ribbon from Andrea, a gorgeous candle created by Heather and whimsical delights from Candice.


This post will remain open for one week. This will give everyone a chance to enter and provide me with a nice bloggy break so I can:

~Enjoy a week long visit with my wonderful in laws

~Study for my college finals

~ Prepare everything for my booth at the upcoming Bohemian Bliss Soiree. Details to follow.

This giveaway is open to everyone. Please leave me ONE comment. If you are an Adorable Person~aka "Follower" please leave a second comment.

UPDATE: The Random Number Generator selected Sheila of The Quintessential Magpie as the Favorite Things Giveaway winner. Congratulations to Sheila and love and blessings to everyone else who entered.

Good Morning Laura, Congratulations on 200 posts! As you know, it was you, Miss Sandy @ Quill Cottage and KathyB @ Spot on Cedar Pond who encouraged me to start my blog.

Singarella inspired me to flickr, craft and lurk other blogs.
Lilia at Flea Market Studio inspired me to blog m'self, and
Donna at Under the Red Roof broke the seal on my comment dam.
Then there was SITS.
I should win your delightful giveaway, because other than having no style, zero flair and zip-nada talent; I could be you.

Housewife Savant said...

Adorable indeed.

Yay this giveaway is awesome because I have been looking for a wallet! All the other goodies look awesome too! Happy 200th post! I can't say just one blog inspired me to start my own but the very first decorating blog I ever found was Cindy's at My Romantic Home. From there I went and looked at almost everyone else and I was thrilled! It took my a few months of reading blogs before I decided to start my own.

All the best,
Allison

Bobbi Jo said...

I love all the vintage items. I was born in the wrong time period. The jewels that were used are so beautiful.
I have a purse and cat glasses that were my moms. I also have the ornaments that they bought the first year they were married this was almost 65 years ago. She said she didn't want them anymore and offered them to me along with the old cardboard houses that go under the Christmas tree.
Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Shannon said...

Lovely things, as always! Good luck on your studies, have fun with your family and Yeah! on 200 posts!

Susie Q said...

Congratulations on 200! You are one of my 'blog idols'...you showcase things so beautifully that I learn a lot from you and Cindy and Rhoda...and pick up bits and bobs from others...Nester, of course. I think I used to have some of the fabric from that wallet you have posted...it's gorgeous. I THINK I used some of it and sent the rest to my mom for quilting and she put it into a quilt for my oldest daughter...if I want to enjoy it, I have to go into her room! And the other little goodies are so charming...

Congrats again~

I am delighted to meet you. I am enjoying catching up on reading your posts. You have some beautiful and inspirational photos. I would have to say that Mrs.Blandings has really inspired me to branch out in my decorating knowledge. She has really opened up a whole new world to me by way of introducing me to some of the greats in the design world.I would be amiss to not say that I really love Eddie Ross as well. We are all feeling the pinch these days, and his bargain transformations are so inspiring.

What a great giveaway! I'm not going to become a follower, though - I honestly never look at that list. I read through my list of favorites on a regular basis (usually once a day - I'm pathetic!). The "follower" list is starting to look cluttered on my profile. So...one entry and I'll just keep my fingers crossed! Congratulations on your 200th post!
