My dear IRL friend "L" who stumbled across my blog several weeks ago wanted to be involved in our giveaways. After finding my blog, "L" sent me a message right away telling me how happy she was that I have this space to share my feelings with people who understand my pain. As you can imagine (and I wrote about here) I was a little surprised and scared. I feel that if too many people (or the wrong the people) find out about this space that I will not be free to write what I feel...I will be guarded and that is not what I want. But, I know "L" would never betray my trust. She has been open and honest with me about her feelings, what she has read, and what she thinks and how she feels about my girls. I completely trust her and have given her permission to read my posts.
When "L" read about the giveaways, she said she wanted to "host" one too. So today's giveaway is from my dear friend "L" via my blog. This item that she has made for one of us is lovely. I know she has put a lot of thought and love into it. It is a small vintage basket that she stumbled upon in an antique shop I believe. She has embellished it with a beautiful glittery bird, some lovely ribbon, and even some stuff (I don't know what it is called, it is what doilies are made of) that her grandmother made. It is gorgeous. I think it would be the perfect place to store photos of your baby(ies), but it can be used for a number of things. Here are some pictures, but they definitely do not do it justice.
So to enter today's giveaway, leave me a comment and tell me about someway your IRL friends have surprised you...if you want to, or just leave your info!! And just so we are clear on this...I will be leaving a comment because I would LOVE to win this from my very special friend! I will randomly choose a winner sometime tomorrow...Good Luck!!
