The Shop At Dreamy Whites & not your grandmothers lace AND A GIVEAWAY

photo from the fabulous Maria at

This past September, I was fortunate enough to be able to sample some of the goodies that my friend Maria from Dreamy Whites was going to have in her FABULOUS French inspired shop.  Well it's a few months later and sweet Maria has figuratively swung open her doors and put out the OPEN sign!  Check out her fabulous store HERE  If you want to read about my little sampling of the goods, go HERE
 Usually when I think of lace I visualize 2 things.  The Jessica McClintock washed lavender colored blouse with the LARGE lace collar that my friend had in 6 grade.  I wanted that blouse SO BAD., not so much.  Or I picture the hand made lace doilies that every ones grandmother seemed to have blanketing their tables.  Judging by all the lace showing up in the design world on pillows and rugs and even room dividers, I don't think lace is just for fabric anymore!

Nothing puts a smile on my face like a LOVELY LITTLE GIVE AWAY!!!!

It's been cold and windy here enough lately to put this happy chick a little bit into the dumps.  Trying to pull myself out of the funk (cleaning my closet WAS NOT WORKING) and put a smile on someone else's face is always fun.  So I thought, "self, why don't you have a give away?"  knowing that self often has some good ideas so I'm taking her advice. IT'S GIVE AWAY TIME!!!  You have a couple ways to win.  Post a comment for one chance.  Post something you like to do when you are in a funk (I often bake, sugar usually makes me happy!).  And if you want to be extra lucky and really want an extra chance, if you post the give away on your blog and post here and tell me, you'll get 2 more chances!'s the prize...

A Scentsy plugin of your choice and one bar of the scent of the month!  The scent of the month is called, MY WISH it's a delightful blend of earthy fig, violets and delicious marshmallow. It's YUMMY! are going to love it!
My Scentsy site is here if you want to check out which plug in warmer you'd like

Contest ends January 20th

Isn't her shop GORGEOUS?! Just as I suspected...I want one of EVERYTHING!

And I do like "todays" lace, thank goodness it has had an update...and I laughed outloud at the Jessica McClintock shirt reference, I think I coveted the same one! Ha!

Carole said...

Now I'm able to use my lace that I've been hoarding for years and not having to feel like a grandma!

Love your giveaway and thanks for the chance.

I clean when I'm in a funk. And when I get mad about something I take a hot shower and clean the shower while I'm in there. Strange, I know. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Hi Robyn, it's my first time here, and I love it. The rug is so pretty. I need to do a little shopping at Antro.
Usually cleaning my house (you know, the deep kind of cleaning, cheers me right up)

I really enjoy reading your blog! Such neat things to look at and read.

I have to say baking always gets gets me out of a funk. Chocolate usually does the trick!!

When I am in a funk, I organize, but seeing as how cleaning out your closet wasn't working for you, I doubt you'll want to use that suggestion! lol :) I also like to bake, do my nails, go shopping, eat chocolate and splurge on something crafty! (so take your choice!)
It was SO good to hear your voice today and chat, I have missed you terribly~! Glad you're back!
Missy :)
