Faith & FamilyFavorite Things Giveaway: Brands with Heart November 23, 2015You guys, today is such an exciting day! When Jenna of Rain on a Tin Roof asked me to join up with her Favorite Things giveaway blog hop, I was so excited. Who doesn’t love a little favorite things giveaway action? Welcome from Krista’s blog, The Happy Housie! Today, there are 13 awesome bloggers all sharing some of their favorite things and running giveaways! When I started thinking about what made something a favorite of mine, I was really drawn to one common thread: the heart. Lately, I’ve really been seeking to get back to my roots and focus on the meaning and the purpose behind style, as I’m sure some of you noticed with my new hashtag. For me, when it comes to Christmas giving and choosing favorite brands and products this year, the purpose and meaning behind them is what’s drawing me in. I decided to share three brands with you today that I not only love their products, but their cause and their heart inspires me. I know I shared this first one with you back in September when this brand launched, but I have to again. One of my very best friends started this business to share her creativity with the world and it has taken off like crazy! Heather-Gail is one of the most creative people I know and her style has always inspired me. Stillwell Style is her jewelry line that she designs and makes herself with a lot of love. Each piece is handmade by she and her husband sitting around their dining table. I love all of her pieces so much! The boho feel of her jewelry is so up my alley and I love that each piece makes such a statement. Beyond her beautiful products, she’s a strong woman of faith with a heart of gold. Her heart and generosity for others is what I’ve always admired most about her and I love seeing how she’s using her new business in those ways. She really felt God calling her to start this business and it’s amazing to see it’s success in only a few short months. You can find all of the Stillwell Style products for sale on her Instagram page here. This new brand was also launched this fall by one of my dear friends, Erin, and her three sisters. Y’all, the heart of these ladies and their business just cuts right to my heart. Erin and I are in a ladies’ book club/bible study together and I can’t even tell you what she’s taught me and how much she’s meant to me over this last year. I’ll let their mission speak for itself. These women have a heart for the Lord and for people. They love style and they’ve found the most unique and beautiful way to bring all of that together into one lovely package: Given. They have amazing products, but here are a few of my absolute favorites: “Giving” Tee | Landscape Clutch | Given Art Print | “Rae” Earrings in Rose Gold And one of my very favorite items they have (which is up in today’s giveaway – get excited!) is this GAIA Square Purse in a gorgeous dyed indigo. I love the suede tassel and it matches the suede back of the purse. I absolutely love the idea of “cause-conscious” goods. You can read about the partners where their products are from and their respective causes here. The last brand I want to share with you today is HammMade Furniture. I “met” Natalie Hamm on Instagram awhile back and feel like we’ve become good friends. She’s one of those people that just lets you into the life of her family in the most unique and treasured way. I am so inspired by the interiors she shares. She and her husband are finishing up the coolest farmhouse now. Beyond their amazing style, I am continually inspired by her heart and how she uses her platform to share how they’re “living by His grace,” to use her sweet words. She and her husband have four of the cutest kids and they make their living building the most amazing swings. They design and make these swinging day beds in several different designs. I wanted one of these so badly for our front porch! I cannot even tell you. I could just picture Rosie enjoying it out there! But our super narrow porch sadly made it a no-go for there. These would be awesome though for a back deck or screened porch and I’m keeping them in mind for when we get to our outdoor living area out back. They also make the sweetest baby swings. They’re the prettiest design and come in a variety of finishes with distressed wood. This is Miss Rosie’s Christmas present, but we gave it to her early just for one photo. She loved it. I know we’ll be enjoying this for years to come and that distressed white finish has my rustic/farmhouse loving heart excited. Beautiful and fun! I’m so excited to be able to share these brands whose products and hearts have inspired me with you today! AND I’m excited to thank you guys for coming here and reading with a giveaway. It’s a win-win! Not only do I love these ladies and their brands, but these three things are SERIOUSLY some of my very favorites. These will run as three separate giveaways, so you have three chances to win! A big thank you to these three brands for sponsoring these items to giveaway to you guys!
