I'm Baaaaaack! and a Giveaway!!!

Yes, I am sure you are all beside yourselves in terms of your excitement as I have returned to the blog world. It is true, I have come out from hiding in the Valentine's Day card-making cave and have returned to write my very own blog post. I never truly realized how it feels to be part of civilization until yesterday when I went to brunch with friends followed by some fun watching the Syracuse basketball game. And let me tell you, people, civilization is pretty good! It's nice to go out and about and do something other than a) teaching, b) cutting card stock and stuffing bubble mailers, and c) staring at a computer screen answering the following question: "Do you think that I'll get this Valentine's Day card before Valentine's Day if I order today?" My answer, my friends? It goes something like this:


On Saturday I still stared at a computer screen for most of the day, but I got to DESIGN! Yes, DESIGN! Is that possible? Was it just a dream? No? No, you say? Ok, well you must be right because there are some pretty fun new things in the shop that I'll be showing off later this week. However, enough of my chatter about feeling like I'm living again. I'm going to switch gears and tell you that I'm ridiculously excited about the true purpose of today's post. And, I think you will be too.

From a long time ago when I started blogging (I don't even know when that is), I met Paige. I think the fact that we're both taller than your average gal and can commiserate over a lifetime of perpetual 3/4 length shirts and the ongoing joke of there being a flood in our basement when we just couldn't find pants that were long enough, may have been enough to call it a day and be blog friends. Paige is a blogger at Little Nostalgia where she openly discusses reasons why she may be weird (see, no wonder we get along!) and share some fabulous DIYs from time to time like this coffee table transformation.

Sometimes I think Paige also must be superwoman, because along with blogging she also has two (count them, TWO!) Etsy jewelry shops Oh, Nostalgia and Little White Chapel, and she is also taking classes for interior design. She is an inspiration for sure! I tend to lean mostly to her beautiful items in her shop Oh, Nostalgia. The pieces have a vintage-inspired flair to them that seem almost art-deco to me at times. And aside from jewelry she also offers handmade coasters with pretty colors and patterns that would be a perfect addition to a cozy space in your home.

Opal Earrings, $18

Beaded Bracelet, $14

Coasters, $14
Paige's items are absolutely gorgeous and also very affordable-- what is not to love? And, she's being really generous to all of you readers by offering a $20 credit to her shop Oh, Nostalgia! Now there's definitely a reason to love her! If you can't wait to find out who the winner is and you would like to snatch up some of her beautiful pieces today, she is also offering the code SAVE15 for 15% off in her shop. I may have to head over and use that code myself for these, these, and definitely these. So enter away below and don't forget to stop by and say hi to Paige via the links below! The giveaway will be open for the next week and I'll be back next Monday to announce the winner-- good luck! :)
