...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Kodie who is ruffled by her daughter’s new school uniform policy.

You may remember this famous mustard pillow from my bedroom of yore…

I bought it from the etsy shop Jilly Bean Craft. The shop’s owner, Jill, is graciously sponsoring this week’s giveaway! Her shop features a variety of handmade items including clutches and pillows.

jilly bean craft

Jill says she’s inspired by modern, retro and vintage designs. I don’t know about you, but I’m inspired by all the ruffles and rosettes. Adorable!

Want in on all the ruffled linen-y goodness? Great! See entry details below.

PRIZE: $25 credit to Jilly Bean Craft

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a shipping address within the U.S. {no P.O. boxes please} to enter.

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “RUFFLE ME!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Friday, July 20th at noon EST. One random winner will be announced later that same day.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking ruffles…Tell me what has ruffled your feathers recently. I’ll go first. You may have noticed I was MIA late last week. That wasn’t deliberate. We had an issue at the Underdog that sent us packing. We crashed at my dad’s house for several days. My dad has no internet service. Thus, the MIA status. I’ll go into more detail about the ‘issue’ in a designated post but I will tell you it involved water + wood. And we all know that water + wood = no good. My feathers were definitely ruffled.

RUFFLE ME!

My feathers are ruffled waiting for our kitchen demo to be finished. It’s just punch list items – but it’s keeping me from putting things away in their new home and finally organizing! There’s a light at the end of the tunnel – I just can’t get there. …

My feathers are ruffled because I’ve been resting and icing my knee from a fall that took place over 3 weeks ago and it’s still not back to 100%. I’m so frustrated from sitting still and most of all, not exercising!

RUFFLE ME! We recently moved into a new construction townhome. Everything is builder grade. We got a good start on making things more personalized, but we are now at a stand still until we can get our fund up a little more. Impatiently waiting……..but soon enough and it will reflect us. Can’t wait.

Going to get my glucose test done. Chugging the drink, waiting the one hour, then going back to get my blood drawn when they realize I hadn’t been checked in yet. When they go to check me in I tell them I’m a self pay client and they inform me that nobody there has access to the cash register, so I’ll have to come back and do it again some other time.

I’m a big fan of the underdog and I hate to hear it had a run in with water! :-( hope it’s dry and on the mend shortly and wasn’t too much damage.

Sadly I can’t enter this because I live in Canada, however I CAN speak to how wonderful Jilly Bean Craft is. Dana, I fell in love with your pillow so hard that I had to purchase one for myself!

The new uniform policy at my daughter’s school. (She’s in first grade.) They have updated it to outlaw colored or patterned socks, hair accessories and belts. Only white, navy or grey is allowed, along with their monotone polos and pants. Which will make all the little children appear as though they are mini versions of leaders of communist countries.

What ruffles my feathers is ….. I’m a licensed THERAPEUTIC foster parent.. we take in either “regular” or “therapeutic” foster kids… Regular are just normal kids whose parents are the issue…. Therapeutic are when the kids have issues and the parents can’t handle them…. anyway to the point… what ruffles my feathers are these parents that either can’t handle their own kids or who have problems themselves (drugs, alcohol, mental etc)seem to think they can still tell me how to run my home! If you can’t or won’t parent your own children …. what makes you think you still should have any say in how I handle my home.
