Day 17: Ferm Living + Son of a Sailor – GIVEAWAY CLOSED

24 merry days

It’s day 17 of the 24 Merry Days and it’s my turn to host a couple of awesome shops which have some goodies to giveaway to TWO lucky readers.

First up, the iconic string candle holder from Ferm Living has gotten so much press and it’s easy to see why.  It’s quirky, colorful, and can be arranged in a myriad of different ways.  Talk about flexible! Ferm Living is a go-to shop for Scandinavian style decor and furnishing and always one of my first stops when I’m looking for something unique.

Second, funky jewelry always catches eyes and dresses up your basics, and this necklace from Son of a Sailor is no exception.  I think it would look amazing layered up with some of your regular gold pieces.  There are so many different awesome things in the shop, though, so you’ve got to check it out!

You have a chance to enter two, but you’ve got to leave a separate comment for each entry (because that’s how we count the random winning number!)


HERE’S HOW TO ENTER – GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED and the winners have been contacted.


p.s. I tweeted about it this weekend, but I seriously don’t have enough days to post about all of my holiday tips, tricks, and projects, so I’m going to bump up to two posts a day this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday!  Get ready!  Tomorrow I’ve got both a project and my front door decor to share!
