900th Post Give Away

_MG_1372 

I am just a couple posts away from my 900th post. That's a lot of paint, a lot of old furniture, and a lot of projects around this house of ours. And a lot of projects that are still waiting to be conquered too! I am so thankful that you have all joined me in my adventures. That you have given your feedback and support. And most importantly, that you continue to come back again and again. Reminding me that this blogging world is so much more than the latest trends and hottest designers. It's about friends and chasing your dreams.

Speaking of chasing dreams, two lovely ladies I have had the privilege of discovering recently are doing just that. Lara and Sara are two super creative, beautiful ladies following theirs hearts and dreams together in Paris. Their passion and creativity came together to create ara.02, a line of french linen scarves with whimsical patterns. 

{ aren't these girls lovely? }

I think I fell in love with each and every scarf, as well as every image from their site. Just lovely.



I felt extremely worldly and sophisticated as I opened my parcel from Paris. It's not every day I have something other than bills in the mail!

I am a scarf lover, but I will admit that I kind of suck at getting that perfect, haphazard look. But this scarf is so soft lightweight and airy that it was a cinch. And it has stayed that way the days and evenings I have worn it out. In short, I'm in love with this scarf!

Lara and Sara are excited to share a scarf with one lucky reader as well!

{ To Win }
all you have to do is head over to Ara.02 and pick a scarf that has your name written all over it, then leave a comment on this post before Monday, November 26 at 8pm Pacific time! I will announce the winner (to be chosen by random.org) later that week.

THANK you Lara and Sara (and Ara.02) and thank you thank you thank you for reading and following my journey.

CONGRATS on reaching 900 posts! As another mom I don't know how you do it all but am inspired and always love getting your posts to my email! I love the Elia scarf. I am not good at getting them to look natural either, maybe these would be the trick as they look great on you!

Shauna said...

CONGRATS on 900 posts! As a fellow mom I don't know how you do it but I am always inspired! I love the Elia scarf! I also am not good at pulling them off to look natural but you say that is you as well and I think it looks adorable on you so maybe the fabric is the trick?
