This Week's Featured Blog Comes with A Give Away
The Pleated Poppy is both an inspiring blog and a sweet online boutique crafted by the lovely Lindsey Cheney. I seriously do not know how Lindsey keeps it all together. She is a homeschooling mom of three, writer, amateur photographer, and (in)courage contributor who also runs a business stocked with delightful products that she makes.
Here is a small sampling of her enormous talent.
She makes these crayon rolls...an essential for budding artists...
and these whimsical tea towels...
and these super sweet and soft headbands that look great on bald heads as well as noggins with lots of hair...
and my personal favorite, the posey pin.
Those are just a few samples of the posey pins, which come in sets of three and look fabulous on shirts, jackets, cardigans, purses, backpacks, scarves, belts and belt loops, gift bags/boxes, hats, and probably about 50 other places that those of you much more creative than me can think up.
For hosting this give-away as a part of Blog of the Week, Lindsey gifted me with a set of blue and white posey pins. I love mine and so does my daughter. In fact, we're sharing them. She wore one today on her top. It served two purposes...it looked great and hid a stain. I plan to use at least one to dress up a white turtleneck. I'd include personal photos, but my camera battery charger is MIA.
However, here is a picture from Lindsey who used some posey pins to dress up a hat. How gorgeous is this?
Here is your chance to win a set of three posey pins.
