a holiday giveaway

 

Here's a little something that might get you into the spirit of giving or shall I say getting.  This month, one lucky reader will win a hand painted, address sign to adorn the front of their home.  Jilly and I think it's the perfect thing to distinguish your little piece of the world.  Especially if you live in a not-so-custom neighborhood, or you're looking for just the right thing to dress your veranda.


The two of us have been creating these original pieces of art for people all around the country for the past 7 years, and can't wait to make one for you!  The winner will receive approx a 24" x 34" sign, including your last name, address, and your favorite quote.  We'll work closely with you to ensure it's perfect for your home, and something you'll adore for years to come. 

simply make a comment explaining why you'd love to win- 1 entry

of our blog- 1 entry


subscribe
to our blog (you'll get a personal email in your in box each time we post) - 1 entry


Please make a separate comment for each entry to increase your chance to win.  Each comment we receive is like a beautifully wrapped package that we can't wait to open.  We just love em!

The winner will be chosen via random.org on Thanksgiving day! 

On another note, It's beginning to feel like winter outside (which means it's below 80) and that reminds me why I love this time of year.  Please enjoy this year's top 10 list.

10. Gourmet hot chocolate with extra cream (email me for the recipe).

9. Our electric bill drops down $300 a month, which means my husband is once again enjoyable.

8. Mommies Thanksgiving pies, they pretty much make it my favorite holiday.

7. The snowbirds are out in rare form.

6. My husband isn't quite as violent about my collection of trench coats, hats, boots, and scarves taking up  space in the closet.  I'd hate to be unprepared for Arizona's first blizzard.

5. Jilly and I get to dress our families in costumes, drop off  holiday treats, and perform a choreographed song and dance for our neighbors.  Wish you lived closer, don't ya.

4. The snow pine scented candle from The Gap.  You've gotta have one!

3. Watching Elf 47 times between Thanksgiving and New Years.

2.  Celine Dion's Christmas album.  I'd play it in August if my family didn't give me dirty looks.
And let's not forget about Justin Beiber and Busta Rhymes rapping The Little Drummer boy. Too far.

1. The tacky strand of ceramic chilies that have made it to the Hatch family white elephant party for the last 20 years. 


PS. Thanks Mandi, our cyber friend from {Vintage Revivals}.  I know we're going to meet you some day so we can officially crown you our third bestie!  Until then, keep blowing us away with your charm and creativity.  YOU'RE AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  14. That sign is gorgeous! I would LOVE to win one because we also live in Arizona - in the typical "not so custom" house with our only porch adornment being the builder's standard house numbers... with the builder's name plastered over the top (I have nothing at all against Pulte, but do they have to plaster their name EVERYWHERE?) and limited options (thanks to the HOA) regarding what can sit on the actual porch itself. This address sign is totally allowable and BEAUTIFUL!! I hope I win!! :D

  55. I'm a new follower. I'd love to win the address thingie.

    I have what I think is a very fun house. but, the house next to us, burned down part way a few weeks ago and looks like heck. They were remodeling and then ran out of cash so it was going to ratville anyway. now my house needs all the help it can get to look like it is not slipping into the ghetto hole that is next door.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would love to have such a unique, custom piece at the entrance of our home. I love our house becuase it is ours. However the exterior style is everything I never wanted. It's much more modern than my tastes. I try hard to find things that don't clash with the modern exterior but still have the vintage feel that I love. It's not always easy to do but I think you two could come up with a wonderful solution!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I would love to win this to personalize my otherwise generic duplex :)
