A gift for you.

First I wanted to share this amazing photograph & blog I just stumbled on, the blog goes by the name of Time Warp Wives and is full of list's and tips on ways to improve your life. For instance 20 Ways to Achieving Your Goals!, How to Deal with Rude People, How to Get Along With Your Mother in Law, and also posts like this one Improving Communication With Your Spouse. Its such a lovely and well written blog I can not get over how useful and mind blowing some of these tips are.

Gifts & Giveaways

Recently my wonderful prize that feels more like a luxurious gift arrived, which I won from the Able Grable Giveaway on Miss Matildas Blog. My package was full of vintage lovelies my favorite part would have to be the 1940's sparkly vintage hat which is to die for and I know I will be wearing it over and over. Once we get unpacked I will be taking pictures of my self with my new lovely items to share with y'all.

Able Grable is a wonderful new clothing line, right now they are offering this darling well constructed 1930's inspired polka dot dress. I am enthralled by the glorious detail on this dress especially the back as well as the high quality materials which this true to the time dress is made of.

Lately I have been stumbling on so many great giveaways and I wanted to make sure you guys knew about some of these.

I would love to do a giveaway for all of you lovely gals but first I wanted to get your opinions. Would you like for it to be a random drawing where I pick a name out of a hat, do you want me to choose by your answers to a question I ask, or do you want to have a poll and vote for who should win the giveaway. If you have any other ideas or advice leave a comment and let me know.
