Your loggia is looking AMAZING!!!!! Congrats on all ends, the house, Home Goods, your blog, firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep up the beautiful and inspiring work.
Please contact me so I can get your mailing address and get this on its way to you! Congratulations!
Today's Which would you choose is a special and magical edition. Special because every item featured is made with love and an insane amount of creativity and talent by Anita Rivera, a darling in blogland and the creator extraordinaire of Castles, Crowns and Cottages. Magical because one look at these and you will see the magic right away! Anita draws beautiful note cards and gift tags and hand creates the most exquisite paper mache ornaments, figures and table centerpieces. They are like little jewels....each and every one!
Her legendary posts ( I do not say that lightly) literally transport you to a place you don't want to leave, trust me! And her wondrous creations reflect that fantasy like world. Anita has a small Etsy shop and sells her handmade treasures and each is so incredibly special. Can you not see an entire Bergdorf Goodman holiday window filled with these jewels? I can! Bergdorf's......are you taking note!! Barneys? Henri Bendel? Martha Stewart? Jean Paul Gaultier for your runway show? I can see any of you snatching these up!
Moving onto the post.....imagine you get one to choose one special item from Anita's shop, which would you choose? Want to know the best part? One lucky winner gets to actually win one of Anita's beautiful creations! She has generously donated one special item to one lucky winner. Details are at the bottom of the post. So feast your eyes on these beauties, and be sure to visit Anita's beautiful online shop by clicking here. Thank you Anita for this beautiful gift that you share!
Gorgeous, don't you think? Were you like me and had a hard time making up your mind? I went from narrowing it down from five to three but cannot get past three favorites! They are each so special.
