UncategorizedLiving Room Pillows and a Giveaway December 6, 2012Alright y’all, welcome to Giveaway Day #4! Thanks so much to you guys for hanging in there with me each day and leaving the sweetest comments. It has made my day to read each and every one. I love this Giveaway because it is FINALLY giving me the opportunity to say thank you. You are appreciated and you brighten my day when we get to chat. Before we get to the Giveaway, I wanted to share our living room pillows this Christmas. I’ve changed things up a bit and I must say, I’m loving it! To all of you who know my white/neutral loving ways, this is going to be a shock… I went red. Well, a little bit red. But for me, that’s huge! For some reason, red has rubbed me the wrong way just a bit over the years, but I’ve embraced her this year. Just for comparison, here’s our living room normally and last Christmas: I love this huge gray “body pillow,” as Chris calls it. But it was just time for a change. I haven’t finished decorating the living room for Christmas and if you look really close, you’ll see some boxes and things that are a bit out of place. But hey, that’s life right? I really wanted to show you my pillows 🙂 Here’s the new couch pillows: The ticking stripe and red floral are from our shop, but the “Joy to the World” pillow is from Pottery Barn. I just love that one. I love the brown cozy fur throw with the pillows too…feels just right for colder weather. I am really loving the red pillows. Red, I think you’re my friend again. As I was taking these, Gracie decided that it was a terrible idea for her to not be included. And then these happened… And then, I gave in because she’s cute and these happened… Okay, enough puppy cuteness. Y’all know I could post those all day. Now onto today’s Giveaway. You may have guessed it by now, but today’s Giveaway will be one red floral pillow cover from the shop. I’m so excited to give this one away because I love it so much! To enter, a reminder of rules: And, today’s question…What is your favorite Christmas tradition? Mine might take a minute to describe, but I’ll try to be brief. Growing up, the Christmas Elf would pay us a visit about once a week leading up to Christmas (after Thanksgiving). The doorbell would ring, we would go running, and left on the doorstep was a brown paper bag. Inside was always some type of small Christmas goodie. It was often a book to read together, a Christmas movie, or a Gingerbread house. It was always something Christmas related to do together as a family. It was such a fun and exciting tradition. The Christmas Elf came to visit me last night. He left Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark and a Christmas yummy smelling candle. What a good husband Christmas Elf.
