today ~
is giveaway time!!




oh yeah!
happy dance!!


but first,
i would like to share this weeks creative project
"cloud nine"
(geesh! there's always a catch somewhere!)

weeks ago,
i came across a lovely blog called ~ Dear Lillie ~
and immediately fell in love with her ~ "silent night, holy night" ~ pillows
the problem was
the color of the pillows and their script
 wasn't what i had in mind for my "holiday theme" this year 
i was going for more of a snow covered cottage feel
but i adored the concept of the throw pillows and the frilly, scroll script

so ~ i set off to find an alternative...




and to what should my wandering eyes appear??!

why,
fabulous frilly text
 that i found right
~ HERE ~!







THRILLED with my success,
i then designed two pillows of my very own to put them on.
i used a cotton/linen sheet that had a fabulous crochet lace detail
that i incorporated into these covers
i made my throw pillows, envelope style, a very simple cover to make...
in WHITE!!!

love it!!




they are exactly what i had envisioned for our family room this holiday season




and yes, they're washable!!
(hey, just because i live with white covers
doesn't mean i deny myself hot mocha's!!) 




now ~
 my "silent night ~ holy night" theme




is echoed throughout the room
and i am on cloud nine...

~ sigh ~


~ so how 'bout it?

are you good and ready
 to hear about my "dreamy giveaway"??!!




well,
might any of you
be interested
in one of these




hhhmmmmm??!!
an ethereal dream catcher of your very own?!




or might i also interest you,
in one of my favorite "create it" books?!




if you adore Jeanne d'Arc style
you would LOVE this book!




the pages are the beautiful heavy, matte print
as it was printed in the UK

oh yah, baby!!

there are many, MANY swoon worthy projects
 contained in this most delightful book i tell ya'!!




for just about every where in your home...




using pretties all of us already collect
such as linen, doilies, crystals, silver...
you get the picture




oh-so-pretty!!




decoupaged crystals...




lace wrapped candle jars...

OH! the fabulousness that is contained within
trust me,
YOU. WANT. TO. POSSES. THIS. BOOK!!
