Thanks to everyone who submitted a holiday idea for my blogiversary giveaway.
Not to get too preachy about this topic but I find that the type of person who puts the little extra effort in their holiday decorating/entertaining/gift giving is a dying breed and it makes me a little sad. I'm happy to see there are plenty of "us" still around. Thank you so much for letting me a peak into your minds and homes - its definitely a treat for me.
So down to business - picking a winner was REALLY tough. There were quite a lot of great ideas. So in the end, I threw a few favorites into a hat and picked out the winner at random. But first, here is a little collage of some of my favorites.
Can you spot the winner????
Congratulations to Tricia of Fabulous Since 1961 for this simple but genius wreath made of pages from old books. A great way to reuse something beautiful that might go unseen/unused otherwise as well as make a festive but modern adornment. Love it.
Honorable mentions to all the other fabulous entries from Preppy Mama, The Stamford Wife, Shoot Scoop aka Laura Bruen Photography, Shorehouse Chic, Nesting Place, Restyled Home, Pajama Mama, Pve Design, Lime in the Coconut, Melanie, Kimberly, Andrea, Carolyn, Colleen & Brooke. (I think I mentioned everyone but if you entered and I didn't mention, please let me know)
Hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did.
For those that mentioned wanting the photos, Im happy to send you a copy if you cover whatever it costs me to have them printed and mailed to you. (Probably about $5 each?) Just email me directly please.
Im sorry to say I don't have much to show of my own decorations because Ive barely done any. I had big plans but working late almost every night this month has put a kibosh on that. Darn my pesky career for getting in the way of blog fodder! At this point I can say for sure that my Christmas Day decorations will be on the low key side but whatever they are, I'll share with you. My Christmas cards should just be all but delivered in a day or two so I'll share those as well shortly.
Hope you're having a great December and warm holiday season.
