Time for the January giveaway!!!

This month the theme of the giveaway is Palm Beach Design.  I found this great vintage fabric at Goodwill......one of the few things I have found there that was cool....AND a deal.  6 yards of fabric for about $5.  I am usually not that lucky.  

I think the key is that you must go early and you must go often.  Neither of which I do on a regular basis.  I just can't be obsessive about it or I will end up awaking at the butt crack of dawn and stalking the employees as they arrive at work.  I can get like that.

BUT...on this one occasion I hit the fabric jackpot as they say.  I was skipping up to the register like a 6 year old her just got her first Barbie.  I know a little something about that....I was the first girl on my block in 1969 1983 1963 [I'm not telling] to get her with the black and white stripe bathing suit [Barbie was classic even back then] and the ponytail.  Let's just say it was a freaking long time ago.

OK...geez, back to what is important.

Here is what we have.

Pillows.  Already made, WITH the inserts.  Uh huh.  3 of them.

Cute huh?

Custom made with zippers!
Pretty flat welt.


24"
20" Trina Turk

Beautimus huh???

More.....
This vase.....
Could be pretty with some flowers in it.

And this book....Not gonna lie.  Got it at the GW for 2 dollars and it is brand new except for this....


Wonder if Nancy knows she gave it away.....

It could be the start of a bedroom......

Palm Beach Style.  So here are some pictures to inspire you!


Start with some color.....
Maybe a cute rug......
Or something like this....Navy would look good.
Add some pillows  from Suzanne's Etsy store studiotulla

Or these
or these....


Then maybe some art like this...

From here  Beverly Underwood on Etsy.




Maybe some art from The Pink Pagoda on Etsy

So.....I think we are on to something.  Now do not get confused and think I am giving away all the other stuff, because as much as I love you guys, not gonna happen.

Leave a comment and become a follower...........be kind to someone.......eat healthy and it's yours.  OK....the healthy part, I realize I am not your Mom.....but just try.

Scott's pictures.....and I am going to the Atlanta show this week.

My neighbor just invited me for dinner....yee haw!!!  Cause I was looking at a can of soup.

Later kids......

Sarah Gray said...

I just stumbled upon your blog while My Interior Life blog. I love your blog! You are really getting my creative juices flowing. The floral pillows are just like my sheets on my bed growing up in the 70's. I have 2boys and finally had a little girl. I would love to do her room around these...palm beach style, I hope you pick me, but no worries if you don't. I will still love your blog,

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Ooooh. I can do Palm Beach. I can...really!

heather (love your space) said...

I like to think that Nancy is reading this, and you totally just exposed her for giving away this gift.

Tee hee hee.

Kat said...

Sign me up! Another pillow or three is always welcome in my home:)

The enchanted home said...

Please include me...what a great giveaway. Makes me yearn for spring and 2.00 for that book? I think Nancy made a boo boo:)

Laurie said...

Great find! Love your blog. Maybe we will cross paths at Scotts! Happy Friday.

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

Palm Beach style always makes me smile and then my mind immediately goes to Lilly Pulitzer and all of her fun clothes.

So funny where you can find treasures. I live further north of you in the mountains and frequently I run into great Florida finds from people who've moved from the area and realize it doesn't suit the mountain look.

Great give-away Sherry. I'm an email follower and those pillows would look fabulous in my south Florida winter digs. And yep, I eat healthy too, but don't mind your reminding me to stay away from the chips. Have fun at Scotts.

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

I swear we had sheets in that fabric a million years ago. So cute. And that vase!!!!

Interior Design Musings said...

Such a fun giveaway! M.

Catie said...

You are too funny! LOVE all the pillows & fun colors!! Would look great in my boring guest bedroom.

Ashley said...

Oh my goodness I'm obsessed!

Jenny G jenny.glade@yahoo.com said...

I went to 2 Goodwills this week and 2 thrift stores. No cute fabric at all. I love your website!

Stephanie said...

Why do I never have such luck at Goodwill?

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

Maybe it's just me, but I could never give away a book someone gave to me with an inscription inside. I'd have to THROW it away. No trace. ;)

hartmom said...

Beautiful and generous giveaway as always Sherry! Someone is about to get very lucky.

Have a great weekend...

Karen

Elisabeth said...

I'm loving the colors of these pillows-how fun! :)

Kristy @ I Design Love said...

Sarah said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I would love to add some color to my apartment during these dreary winter months!

LindsB said...

Woah, what a find! That fabric is amazing. I wish I could get to the thrift stores more than I do, they always have great finds if you make it there at the right times.

lori_r8 said...

One word... "LOVE"!

Beth said...

My family is from Florida, and those pillows reminded me of sheets my grandmother had in her guest room in the 70's. Thanks for the sweet memory!

liz lyday said...

Yes, please, to all of it! How fabulous! Thanks for sharing.

Maureen in Decatur

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

Oh yes! Yes please!

Erin said...

I'm already a follower & eat mostly healthy. Though I should probably exercise more but my 4 kiddos keep me active. And I was nice to my children today, does that count? :0)
I would use the pillows in my only daughter's, so far, room. Those colors and pillows are gorgeous!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

So many fun and colorful pillows. Had to bookmark her site. Her prices are not bad! Great give away...

Sunday... Hi Sheriky Freaky, if I may be so bold. I would like to share with you what a fun, humorous, relaxing and yet inspirational day I have had reading almost all of your blogs... just a few left (I really do have a life.. however I indulged myself today... healing my football wounds since the Broncos lost last evening.) I have sat here on the couch most of the day reading and laughing aloud as my husband is working hard around the house... cars oil change... getting the grill ready for dinner and trying to watch some football ..probably thinking... how lazy can my wife possibly be ..as I keep showing him decorating ideas as he passes by. ...I betcha a 1,000 bucks he'd just about rather be at work than for me to keep showing him the many design ideas I'm seeing.

Oh well, I'm having fun... I recently heard the podcast on itunes with you as a guest on Design Tips with Lee Anne and Martine and checked out your blog..


Hunny you so funny....

And how did I live in Atlanta for so many years and not know of Scotts????? Geeezzz ..talk about living under a rock.

Following ya now..... looking forward to more......

Leanne (former F/A too or as I say... an onboard bag lifter for the lazy with poor manners.. :)

Mai-Brit @ thisfulllife said...

Those pillows are a breath of fresh air - keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

I have that striped fabric in an otherwise sparsely decorated room. (And crossing fingers) I hope to reunite it with those awesome pillows.
