The winners of Sweet Jeanne Oliver's ecourse are
1) Leslie, "Oh I SOOO NEED this! our home is very basic and I do try to put love it in but I do get caught up in the comparison trap, dumb huh?!! we are very blessed to have our little home and I just feel like I want to keep changing elements all the time. For me, I want my home to be cozy, inviting and says family! thank you so much for the chance :)"
2) Deborah, "Now that the kids are gone (most of the time) and I'm an empty nester that has grandkids over lots, I would look forward to having a new look and feeling for my house. I've taken her other two courses so I can only imagine that this one will be great. Thanks for the opportunity."
3) Donna, "I feel called to be more hospitable, but it scares me to death. I need help."
Ladies, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize! (I'll be gone until Monday)Laura, asked me if she could give something fun away to LMM readers, from her Etsy shop, The Ironstone Nest. I was delighted because let's face it, giving things away is the best! Laura sells some of the cutest items in her shop. She has things like French signs, chalkboards, vintage items, lavender sachets, blue mason jar soap dispensers, antique sugar mold candle holders and decorated platters to name a few. She gathered a handful of lovely items from her shop and created a giveaway I'm sure you're going to adore. The top photo shows a tiny bird's nest and faux egg, and above, you see a preserved boxwood wreath with sheer ribbon for hanging. I hung it above a mirror because that's my favorite way to display tiny wreaths like this...
ironstone soap holder and scrumptious smelling finely milled kiwi mango butter soap. Mmmm.
book pages tied with twine into the box...
French. Ooh la la. I like...
petite glass cloche. You could put all kinds of cute things in this.
vintage orange marmalade crock. It would be perfection with some wild flowers in it! The first one Laura sent me had a big cracked piece just waiting to fall out so she was gracious and sent this to replace that. (And she let me keep the broken one... I'll show it to you after I've super glued it.)
boxwood wreath... Isn't this the cutest collection of things? I think Laura really outdid herself for y'all!
Laura sells a lot of sweet things in her shop that I know y'all would love so be sure to go check her out! Like me she loves to create, repurpose things, decorate and bake. She says, "I enjoy re-purposing vintage items into something completely unexpected. I see the possibility in items other people may have neglected and am able to give them a new life. I also enjoy the thrill of the hunt at flea markets, garage sales, antique malls, estate sales and anywhere I can get my hands on a one-of-a-kind treasure. However, my true passion lies in finding old, unwanted furniture and rejuvenating each piece with paint, restoration or both, and always with love and care"
