If you are in the mood for a giveaway, or two, or three, or four, head over to Houghton Happenings.  There are so many cute things listed on this blog that are all going to go towards a few lucky people!  (I am hope I am one of them!)

First off, check out these adorable booties by Bonnie Bluebell's.  I have my eye on a pair of baby girl ballet slippers in olive green.

Then, look at the beautiful hand stamped jewelry by The Silver Diva.  The personalized rectangle necklace for mommies is on my Valentine's Day wishlist.

Sharing Sites.

You know when you find a really great website that you haven't ever seen before and it makes you so happy you are giddy. Well that is how I felt when I stumbled upon today.  I love it.  Everything offered on this site is perfect for my dream home/nursery/life!  I hope you enjoy laylagrace's one of a kind style, unique items, and lovely home decor.  You can even enter your gift registry on the site!  How perfect is that? You can even stop by their blog here

2011 in style.

Many of you may already have your calender for 2011.  Some of you probably purchased them back in 2010.  Some of you may be content using your iphone.  But me, I like a calender with a little style.  Check these fun ones out!

Winter is Still Here

I am perterbed.  I do not understand why people put up Christmas decorations in October only to take them down immediately once Christmas is over, then act as though spring is just around the corner.  Well let me remind you, it is not.  Winter is still here, and whether you like it or not, we still get to endure the cold weather, snow and ice.  I love it!  I love the winter, the weather, the atmosphere, and the feeling of cozying up in front of a fire with a cup of tea, a warm blanket, and my baby all snuggled up!  In lieu of welcoming you to the new year with a collection of "spring is here" ideas, here are some that remind us that it is only January and winter will still be here until May.  (Hey, it's the midwest people!)

Happy Holidays!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, New Years etc.  While I spend some time coming up with an amazing post to welcome in 2011, I wanted to give you an awesome giveaway (not from me, but from another blog) that you can enjoy until I return.  Houghton Happenings has 3 giveaways going on right now.  One is for a $20 shop credit at My Little Pixies.  Another is for an Oshi Mat kit (check those out...sooo cool!), and the third is for a beautiful pair of drop earrings from Be Fashion.  Enter all three for more chances to win!
