...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.

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. …

RUFFLE ME!

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! My feathers were ruffled as we waited for MONTHS for the financing to come through so we can begin building our new home. Now it’s in place, though, so we’ll be breaking ground any day!

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.

I’m ruffled and flustered today because I have tons of things to do around the house and it is so steamy hot (no A/C) that I can’t even manage to think straight let alone complete any tasks.

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 was ruffled yesterday b/c my hubs and I are building a bed for our son, and we kept having to make trips to Lowes because we kept realizing we didn’t have exactly the things we needed. Ugh, frustrating!

Ruffle Me! What is ruffling my feathers of late is that I never seem to get rid of this one pile of clutter- it just gets moved from one spot to another and it drives me bonkers!! And if you need any advice on the water & wood issue, email me. I’m an IICRC certified restoration project manager and this is what I do. 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.

Same thing happened to me! They watered my herbs but not my flowers. Go figure! It wasn’t as hot as Texas, but definitely hot.

my house is a disaster zone right now. We moved in 2 1/2 years ago, and i dont feel like one room is actually complete.
Master Bedroom is next – it should be my sanctuary, but instead it just stresses me out! Maybe if i had some new pillows…hmmm.

Last night we got a big storm and the windows that we JUST had fixed (one is even brand new) leaked! Water poured in. Now we might have to take the windows out and put them back with extra weather proofing.

Swimming lessons where I end up doing more teaching than the instructor. I’m doing a Mom and Tot class with my son and the instructor gives us absolutely no guidance, no ideas. Nothing. I know they’re not so supposed to be doing the butterfly at 2, but a little creativity is always appreciated.

We’re working on so many house projects that every room seems to be unorganized & chaotic now…I’m feeling claustrophobic & my feathers are definitely ruffled!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

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! I bought it last summer to compliment my living room decor, and it is simply perfect. The sale and shipping was smooth and easy. Can’t say enough good things! Good luck to everyone- you won’t be disappointed with the results of your winnings :)
