a few of our favorite things, for you!


The holiday season is in full swing, and the two of us are up to the freckles on our foreheads in family parties, friend parties, classroom parties, work parties, church parties, neighborhood parties, and any other parties we can invite ourselves to!

Throwing a good party is a lot work, which turns into a lot of fun. Our little blog is an ongoing  party for us, and what fun is a party without a thoughtful gift?

We are offering up some of our favorite things that one of you will win!  Don't think it's impossible...Jilly won the December giveaway last year from {Jones Design Company} and it's true, she might have thought she won the lottery.


Included in this month's package of love are four things:  A soft, warm, chevron patterned scarf, a $50 gift card from Anthropologie, a set of paints from DecoArt, and a christmas pennant.

We are so excited to have DecoArt as our very first sponsor!  They have graciously offered up the paints we used on one of the pieces we transformed for the {Nate Berkus Show}.  Mia had a ho-hum nightstand and some serious vision.


With the help of the paints, we turned it into a showpiece with a faux zinc finish.


These paints are a dream to work with!  The perfect consistency and smooth, even coverage.  Have you been to the DecoArt website lately?  It's chock full of excellent products and we can't wait to bring you some great tutorials using their line next year.

Wanna win?  You've gotta play!

  1. What an amazing giveaway. Each of those items are things I love--I'm obsessing over chevron lately! I have been eying knobs at Anthro because I would really like to makeover my current dressers and the paint is perfect for that too :) It would be just the motivation I would need to get going on the project!
