Sweet Idea for Spring (& a giveaway)

Sweet Idea for Spring (& a giveaway)

O k, so on Tuesday I published this giveaway post and the only thing that showed up for you all was the photo! No text, no giveaway details, no nothing — even though I had stayed up late the night before to get it all fancy for you! Nice! So sorry!

If it had happened today, April 1st, you might have thought I was playing an April Fool’s joke on you. But, I guess the joke was one me. Note to self: do NOT do taxes, move and attempt to blog all in the same week. Thanks for your patience with my overly ambitious week.

What I meant to tell you yesterday is how much I adore these little hanging votive vases! Look how sweet they look hanging from the patio umbrella! How wonderful to snip some flowers from the yard and put them in the vases right before dinner outside. Simple and easy loveliness.

One of my sweet blog partners for the month, Paula from Neutral Dwelling, has those hanging votive vases in her home decor shop.

And to celebrate spring, Paula has offered to give a set of three vases to one lucky reader of The Inspired Room! No joke! All you have to do is leave a comment below, and pretty please make Paula’s day by signing up for her newsletter here!

And if you want a set of these little beauties for yourself, you can find them here! I was thinking these little vases would make a great Mother’s Day gift, wedding shower gift or birthday gift! Wouldn’t they also be wonderful at an outdoor wedding reception?

Have a great day! Me? I am headed back to Washington with another massive load of belongings. I’m seriously afraid of not being able to fit it all in my new house. I tried to downsize my belongings, I really did,  but since my new house is already pretty full from my first phase of moving, and now I am heading up with another a full 10 foot trailer and a 26 foot U-haul truck , it isn’t looking like I downsized enough. {nervous laugh}

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about the winner of the Emily June /Little Window Shoppe bloggy giveaway… ta da, the winner was Vintage Window! And, she has already had her winning bloggy makeover so go over and see how pretty her blog is now! But don’t forget to enter the hanging votive vase giveaway before you go!

    Those little outside vases are so cute!

    My only advice to you, which you probably know already, is to wait until you have all your stuff in one place before you give anything away. I made that mistake more than once and ended up buying something similiar to replace it. I’m regreting selling my antique mantel right now… big time!

    I woke up feeling really overwhelmed this morning. My sweet Mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and she called me last night so worried that she needs to find a place to live, forgetting that she owns her home and that my brother and sister live with her. She now thinks that it is their house and that they are strangers she doesn’t know.

    My hubby is in his 6th month of unemployment, our oldest daughter and son-in-Love are in the adoption process (nerve wracking but joyous at the same time), and our youngest (unmarried) daughter just found out she is expecting in November. I’m going to be a Grandma for the first time, twice over!

    I just want you to know that your blog never fails to soothe my nerves. Both your words and your images are so full of Light and Peace. Always soothing to my soul. “Out of the abundance of the heart”… and yours is always overflowing with good things.

    Thank you Sweetie.

    The hanging vases are so beautiful! They would be perfect for show -casing all the lovely flowers , trees and shrubs God has so graciously sent forth in bloom here in the South. I can easily visualize the vases hanging in our front windows. filled with azalea or dogwood blooms. (They could easily be used throughout every season, filled with God ‘s seasonal blessings. There is always beauty to be found, and shared with our neighbors.)
    Thank-you for sharing the lovely photo–it made my day! Now I need to prepare my home for the arrival of my precious 3 month old granddaughter.( Another perfect gift from our Lord!)

  202. I must say that after I posted a comment here for the give-a-way I popped over to view these cute little vases at Neutral Dwelling and ended up buying a set for my twin sister. Our birthday was a week ago and I still hadn’t found that perfect little gift for her. These are perfect. She and her family entertain all the time on their back deck and she is the hostess with the mostest…she will love these. They shipped out yesterday and I can’t wait for her to call me and tell me how much she loves them. Thanks for the great gift idea. Maybe I will win the give-a-way and both ‘twins’ will have a set of them. Be blessed, Cherri
