A Splurge and a Giveaway!

***This Giveaway is Closed***

At the beginning of the month my husband gave me $100 cash for our anniversary and last night I got to go shopping!  Yay for me!!  I went to Target and found nothing, KMart....nothing but I did find a few things at Hobby Lobby and Joanns!

I have been looking for some metal pieces for the living room and dining room and finally found something that I like.  I apologize in advance for the bad pictures, I took them in the garage because I was too lazy to bring anything in.
I can't wait to get motivated and find them a home!

And now for the splurge, I have had my eye on this amazing wreath at Joann's for a while now, but I choked every time I thought about spending $40 on a wreath, come on!  But yesterday when I went in it was 40% off, only $25!!  And because this was "gift money" and not household money I didn't feel guilty at all....ok, I might have picked it up, put it back, picked it up, put it back like 3 times but it finally came home with me!
An amazing black feather wreath!  How cute is this going to be for Halloween?!?!  I love it!  And now for the Giveaway!!!

I finally reached 300 followers and am completely, totally excited!  I might have even texted my husband to tell him.  He called me a dork!  So to show my appreciation to all of my followers I am going to giveaway a custom Monogrammed frame!

I have had my eye on the SAME wreath! I did the same thing the other day...picked it up, put it down, picked it up, put it down..and eventually I left without it :( I didnt have gift money (but I did have my 40% off coupon!), so I felt way too guilty. I bet you will be adding your own embellishments just like I was dreaming of doing :)

I am a proud follower of your blog!! You can enter me in the fab giveaway :) Congrats on 300 followers! I too text my hubby when I reach a milestone! (not even close to your milestone...so I can only imagine the giddy-ness!)

Happy Friday!

Already a follower, of course! ;) Can't wait to see what you'll do with the wire goods...and let's say it wasn't laziness that stopped you from bringing them in from the garage -- rather that you just wanted that feel good moment that comes with new purchases every time you went into the garage!

Mrs. Fine said...

That wreath is amazing...definitely worth the $25. Did you wear it around your head or neck as you continued to shop? I think I might have...it's that fun!

Stephanie said...

Congrats on the 300 followers...
I am one of the many who enjoy your site...
I love the metal work you picked up...I loved the monogram when you first showed and planned on making one of my own...it's still on my to-do-list..but maybe I'll win this one....

My sister just shared your blog! Very cool and I love the monogram, especially because the monogrammed frame H est. 2006 is what I would hang in my house. That being said, if i don't win the drawing, I would be interested in finding out how to either make or purchase one! My email is: cnhenigin@gmail.com
