A Valentines Day Giveaway

031-1
Hooray! It's a Valentines Day handmade giveaway! I am so excited about this! Valentines day is just around the corner and whether you expect a dozen roses and a diamond ring from your love, or plan on getting a pizza and a bag of candy hearts with a good romance movie, I wanted to offer another way for you to treat yourself.
The first prize you will be winning is the amazing "Love you Long Time" print from my dear friend Amy Morby. Amy is hosting a month long self love revolution, and you should pop on over and take a peek at what she is up to and start celebrating yourself during this month of love!

And the second part of this amazing prize pack is the newest treasure from the ever so lovely Susannah of Susannah Bean. The sweetheart headband is gorgeous and I can tell you right now, I want one for myself.

The third, yes third part of this amazing giveaway is from one of my favorite people in the entire world. Danielle from Dinosaur Toes is offering a pair of her hammered brass hoop earrings with ruby berry beads. These earrings are handmade in her studio and I can attest to the quality of her work, as I own a handful of pieces that I have had forever and still look like the day I got them!
And lastly, you can win this pair of sunglasses from us!! A red frame with our darkest ebony wood veneer. A beautiful match and perfect for the upcoming spring!
