Sponsor giveaway

Hello….i hope you all had a lovely weekend. We spent the day in Wisconsin today….at the beach.

check check….double check.

I’m getting my list all checked off and can’t wait to fill you in.

But…..while i get my act together…i thought i would introduce you to one of my

favorite online shops.

The Beautiful Life.

I think the name says it all.Ruth…owner of this shop full of goodies….really knows what she’s talking about when she

states that her shop is full of swoon worthy items for your home.

I come away from perusing…drooling all over.

I told her she should change the term to DROOL WORTHY….but she didn’t think it was a good idea…

so i asked to speak to her manager.

She didn’t hang up on me though.


I have a feeling you might come away drooling all over your keyboard though.

Don’t say i didn’t warn you.

I actually have this  Jute feedsack rug in my sunroom:

I love a good home decor magazine….but this one is a flip over backwards one.

It was named the best interior magaine in Norway.

Vakre Hjem and Interior.

The Beautiful Life also carries one of my favorite Swedish decor magazines ..

Jeanne d’Arc.


and you all know how much i love to bake…..these  baking tags are the sweetest thing i have seen.

I’ll take two packages with a dozen cupcakes please.

The Beautiful Life  put together one amazing giveaway for you.

The package includes:

The Emma Bridgewater….”Happiness is..” mug. The coordinating kitchen towel….

the jute bag “take an old bag shopping”….and to tie it all together…

the Vakre Hjem Interior magazine.

Did you get all that….holy smokes!

You can drool all over now….you have my permission!

The Beautiful life wants to make YOUR life more beautiful.

All you have to do is head over to the shop {here}….peruse around…then head back

here and leave me a comment.

Tweet and/or Facebook this for a double entry.

  1. I came from over there to over here and you are sending me back? (gasp) I’ll be worn out.
    And you have me curious where in Wisconsin. I’ve been here all week (all month even) and maybe we passed without waving! I was the one wearing drool and pet hair.

  2. Fragrances. And the intriguing wooden hands.

    I would have been back sooner but we had a brief power outtage!

  3. Inspiration! I love the jute feedsack rugs… I’m trying to think of where I would use them in my house… hmmm… so many places they could look fabulous.

  4. What a great giveaway as always!

  5. What beautiful stuff from beautiful life!


  6. double sided glass pendant with the Eiffel Tower, please!


  7. Ok Kasey.!!!
    ..I did not plan on going shopping, but I could not resist a few things at The Beautiful Life – namely MAGazines, as I am quite addicted to them. I almost invested in the No. 843 – because I also LOVE typography, but I didn’t know where to put those particular numbers – I will have to step away from my computer and look around. Thank you for sending me to Ruth’s store and to her blog – also a delight.
    Your musings about life, children, friends, home and the like are charming and entertaining! Thank you for sharing….(and your music choices are perfect!)
    Happy Days!
