{Our First Giveaway of the Week} Three Holiday Wreaths from The Chic-Adee Shop!



Anders Ruff Custom Designs CLASSIC HOLIDAY Design Printable Collection
(featuring Melissa's wreaths)


Melissa Clark, owner of the Etsy Shop, The Chic-Adee Shop, helped to make our CLASSIC HOLIDAY Design Printable Collection, well...classic and chic! She graciously custom made for us three stunning felt wreaths (with garlands) that were featured in our photo shoot (to promote our Classic Holiday Design Collection printables). We are so excited to be able to give all three wreaths away to one lucky follower!

Melissa, in her own words is “currently on vacation for the holiday season. Time to trick or treat with the kids, make too many pies for Thanksgiving, and drink hot cocoa by the fire while staring at the Christmas tree. I will be back next year with a handful of new designs that will make your front door tingle."

That’s the nice thing about owning your own business. You’re the boss! Enjoy your holidays, Melissa, and thank you for letting us ring in the season with your spectacular, custom wreaths. Although Melissa is currently on vacation, here are some of her custom designs that sold last season.

{Giveaway} Gracious Garlands and Peppy Toppers from Potter & Butler



I absolutely LOVE this week’s giveaway. I’m taking out my pom poms, dusting them off and jumping for joy! Well, not really; however, when you see the merry poms created by Potter & Butler, you will be doing a little dance too.

Potter & Butler are “makers of handmade goods for merry celebrations.” Partners and close friends, Emily and Carrie launched their business after they left the world of print advertising. They went their separate ways (Emily to Portland, Oregon, and Carrie to Des Moines, Iowa), but kept in touch. Their desire for a creative collaboration came to fruition in the form of
Potter & Butler.



In their own words, “the name, Potter and Butler, is a tribute to our great-grandmothers, Etta Potter and Mirium Butler, who were independent, strong, free-thinking, artsy, talented, bird-lovin’, caring about the greater good, resourceful, and stylish (in their own right ) ladies – who could make anything, and more often than not, did make everything – by hand. Potter and Butler is a little bit of us. It’s a little bit of them. It’s a little bit of now. And a little bit of then. And it is our intention for the raw delight of handmade goodness, that was so alive and well in the lives of Ms. Potter and Ms. Butler, to be part of the lives of others- and all the merry celebrations that adorn those lives.”

Potter & Butler’s work has been featured and mentioned by many, including Hank and Hunt, Covet Chicago, Odessa May, Apertif’s, Southern Belle’s Charm, Our Designed Life, Edible Crafts, Cupcakes and Cutlery and Gordon Gossip.

We are thrilled to share with you some of their amazing creations:

{Giveaway} Hank + Hunt Handmade Fabric Garland - Dreamy!



What is one of the first things you think of when you think of your most favorite parties? I'm not talking "My Super Sweet 16", I'm talking real - homemade- memorable parties that you had when you were little. "Vintage" parties.

GARLAND, right? I can remember my mom stringing up garland all across our basement beams and setting up the most simple. perfect. party. Such great memories. Garland = Party.

When I spotted Hank + Hunt on etsy, I fell in love. Jenny is the creative mastermind behind Hank + Hunt. Remember? I did a post on them awhile back. Well, they are back in the forefront of our minds and have graciously sponsored a giveaway. Read on.

Hank + Hunt = Handmade Garlands that will make you smile.

Jenny has amazing taste and you can tell she puts her heart and soul into everything she does.

I love the natural beauty of the handmade garlands. I love that they are KEEPSAKES. Who is going to keep paper garlands? Not I. These garlands are made to last.

How special would it be to use a custom set of fabric garlands from Hank + Hunt every year for your daughter's (or son's) birthday? Even if they don't match the theme that year, putting them up as decor or using them in a creative way at each birthday party would surely create a tradition that would be so special. What memories those would make! To top that off... what if you placed the garland somewhere nicely at your daughter's wedding or shower to surprise her? Talk about tear jerker!

I just have to share some photos that I snagged from Jenny's blog.

I know that vintage parties are the hot rage right now. I can picture these at SO many parties that I have researched. They just fit. They are just perfect. I will never buy paper garlands again!

You have to head on over to Hank and Hunt on etsy. Look at her current inventory but also look at her sold. She has done some beautiful garlands!


Look at the colorful beauties, too.

If you are obsessed like I am with gift wrapping, you will really appreciate this... Look how she packages her garlands! Wrapping and packaging is SO important with product presentation and she nailed it!

The most PERFECT display... simple and elegant. It starts with the garland, I tell ya!

You just have to check out Hank + Hunt blog, too. She posts some really creative and inspiring articles. I feel like I know her after reading her blog!


Hank and Hunt just listed a new product in their shop. Their Mini Party Pack!
It is perfect for little get togethers or parties for little ones. Hank + Hunt is giving away a Mini Party Pack to one of our readers! She makes her garlands out of buttery soft muslin.... so gorgeous!



Giveaway Description:
The Mini Party Pack ($58) Includes:
-one 3' bunting (five flags)
-one fringe garland
-ten fabric cake flags on 4" sticks, for cakes or cupcakes
{in your choice of cream, white or both.}
