~a bag full of posies giveaway~

Hey there friends!
I am just waking up from a long winters nap.
It seems 7 kids in a hotel overnight for a birthday party will do that to you.
It was fun though,
the girls had a blast and they only got yelled at 4 times for screaming,
and not wearing shoes in the restaurant.
No biggie.
They swam, and swam, and swam.
Told ghost stories, watched eclipse, had pizza and ate fabulous cupcakes from here,
ate cooked to order breakfast, & ran wild in the hotel.
They stayed up till 4 and got up at 7......
They even saw a boy that looked like Justin Bieber and I thought we were for sure going to get kicked out after all that!
But, we didn't.
We didn't even get kicked out when I tried to go to the gym and leave the kids in the pool.....
{alone}
Did you know you are not supposed to do that?
~oops~
Ok, enough rambling.
I have a fabulous giveaway to offer today!
Kellie from this blessed nest
is offering one of her newest bags to one of you readers!
They are made from jute and leather and have a zipper closure and a pocket inside.
I don't know how often I need one of these when I'm out running errands~especially one with a zipper closure.
You can check out her etsy shop here.
She will even do a custom bag just for you!
Or, you can choose this adorable to market to market bag.
{love this one!}

Or,

eat your greens.

Or, for the holiday season this vintage style Merry Christmas bag!

I just love these and am so happy to be able to offer one to you!

All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me what you would put on your bag if you did a custom one. Or, would you choose one of the others?
Don't forget to visit Kellie's etsy shop and her blog!
I will choose a winner on Monday the 15th with that random number generator thingy.
Have a wonderful day!
xoxo

It sounds like Savannah had a very Happy Birthday. What a fun party you had for her! I love the Merry Christmas bag. It's perfect for shopping and I would hang it on the door as decoration as well. What a lovely giveaway!

Love all the bags, it would be hard to pick but I think I would have a bag with a chandelier on it.

2Bugaboos said...

I love these... so adorable! I would choose one of my favorite sayings, "Keep calm and carry on"!

melinda said...

When we go fishing I always bring a huge bag on the boat. My husband teases me about what all is in it. I pack toilet paper ( cuz I'm not equipped to stand up and go off the side of the boat)Wet wipes for worm goo. An extra jacket in case of temperature drop. Cell phone in case we run out of battery in a storm and of course snacks. So I would have " Gone Fishin " put on my bag !

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

I'd love one that says 'making groceries'. It's a term we use in New Orleans. That means 'grocery shopping'.

Rachel said...

Something botanical! Love the bags.

Nancy said...

Oh, thank you for bringing back fun memories of my daughter's childhood birthday parties!! Thank you!!!

And I LOVE the Christmas bag! I've a sweet collection of bags, but seeing this, I realize I don't have a Christmas one. That just canNOT be! *lol* (I'm the non-conservative one in my office ... now I have to go look at Kellie's website, see what I can do to maintain my image! *lol*)

Stacey Merriman said...

They are all adorable, but I would probably get a custom one that said Maison de Merriman. A little free advertising ;P

Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia said...

I would love "To the market,to the market" and use it as a carry all to put my wallet, a diaper and wipes for those quick errands with a little one. I'm thinking it would be awesome while traveling too.

All That Jazz said...

You had me at Eclipse. Seriously~ is it out on DVD? Where/how did they see it?? Email me~ do you have a secret connection????? ;-)
It sounds like a wonderful night- bless your heart you are a GREAT mom to do this for Savannah, she'll remember her 12th b-day forever!
Now onto those bags....LOVE them, want one, need one! I think if I did a custom one I'd have to have a horse shoe on it, with my initials or something fun like "Cowgirl" or "FarmGirl." Or I might just put on an inspiring quote like "Life is Beautiful/ La Vita e Bella" which I recently had stamped on a necklace.
Cool giveaway!!

~LisaLou~ said...

To Market To Market! My dad used to tell us a story about an old woman who went to the market and bought a fat pig and it wouldn't jump over the style on the way home. It's long and repetitive and the grandkids have now memorized it! This bag would be a hit with my family!

The Safrans said...

Kirsty said...

"RELAXING AT THE BEACH" if I could choose a custom design. They are really cute...

They're ALL so awesome, I don't know which one to pick! If I HAD to narrow it down however, I'd have to go with either the No. 9 bag or the "to market, to market" one with the adorable little pig on it. So cute!

Patty said...

love the vintage christmas. hard to choose just one though. thank you.

Veronica said...

i like the "to market" bag w/ the piggie. i love piggies, my husband loves piggies (he want one), and i would use it every friday on my weekly trip to the farmer's market.

I love the Christmas one, I would hang that by my back door for the Holidays.

Meredith said...

I love the pink polka-dot "to market" bag...thanks for a great giveaway!

HRH Sarah said...

That Santa bag is adorable, but I'd definitely get a custom one made- something with a tiara or crown. And maybe my monogram... then again, a fleur de lis and my birthyear would be nice too. Or, something knitty, since it'll probably end up with yarn in it. OH! so many possibilities!

Sunshine Spigot said...

Hard to say, I really like the orange "BOO" bag but the Market to Market bag I could use all year long...I would really like a custom one with a penguin on it if that would be possible.
