Giveaway: A Few Of My Favorite Things

May 23, 2013

This is a group giveaway! Not a groupie giveaway. I’m no longer allowed to provide band followers to the masses.

The Proper Pinwheel - Fave Things 1

I love sunsets. My phone’s camera roll is filled to the brim with different pictures of sunsets that would make Ansel Adams cringe. I just can’t help myself. The color palette is always to die for. Who doesn’t love coral hues?! I mean, come on! And when paired with gold accents, you just can’t lose.

I’ve compiled a few of my favorite items that just happen to fall in this beloved category. And I’m wanting to give ‘em all away to one of you. You need these things in your life!

One lucky human will receive: a paper garland by Mara-Mi, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Tutti Fruitti, a bag of Starburst FaveREDS, stripey wooden forks by Sucre Shop, watercolor napkins, a notebook by Rifle Paper Co., chevron stripey straws by Shop Sweet Lulu, and golden thank you cards by Mara-Mi.

Holy crap. That’s a lot of good coral-y red stuff.

    My favorite thing is my husband being home all day with our girls. As a teacher, he gets summers off and I love how relaxed our home is when he isn’t working!

  2. Jocelyne

    My favourite thing about summer is how easy it is to throw together an amazing dinner on the barbeque.

  3. Richelle from Lynn & Lou

    I love the beach days. I am usually not one to sit around not doing anything – but those days I just sit back and relax.

  5. Zenaida

    My favorite thing about summer besides VACATION is the beach when it is sunset. Became a fan in FB, thanks for the giveaway!

    My favourite thing about summer is obviously Summer break. Oh and also all the delicious cold treats I’ll be able to have now. :)

    I’m SO obsessed with coral right now! My favorite thing about summer is Berry Lemonade Iced Teas from Starbucks – it’s my Summertime drink.

  8. Lydia

    My favorite thing about the summer is the cool nights!! (cool enough that I could walk around in shorts and a tank)

  9. Julia Lyssand

    My favorite thing about summer is not having to have my kids on a school schedule. We don’t have to rush out the door early or be in bed by 8. Love it! The longer, warmer days are a favorite too!

  10. Kim @ oh, sweet joy!

    My favorite thing about summer is afternoons by the pool finished up with a glass of sangria!

  11. Amy N

    My favorite thing about summer is the SUN!!! It stays out longer and puts everyone in a better mood.

  12. Brittany

    My favorite thing about summer is going to the lake/hammocking! Unfortunately, grad school means classes + work through the summer, so I haven’t gotten to enjoy it as much as usual.

  13. Kristin

    I’m an early (really early) riser and I love how clean and green the air is on Sumemr mornings.

  14. Nicolette

    Favorite thing about summer – the sun! It is actually still light for a few hours when I get off work so I get more done outside.

  15. Kia

    I love the summer heat and all the glorious dessert options it brings! Ice cream, popsicles, granitas, DIY dippin’ dots, smoothies … the list goes deliciously on …

  16. Peggy

    I love that my kids are out of school and we can spend that time together!!!! I also love the fresh veggies from the garden and the beach!! My kids LOVE the beach! thank you for the chance to win this fun fun giveaway!

  19. Tania

    Great giveaway! My favorite thing about summer is spending entire balmy days at the beach. If you bring a beach tent and picnic lunch you can do it right!

  20. Norma Taylor

    Well, I certainly do not like the heat of summer but I do like all of the special activities that come with summer–concerts in the park, library reading programs, the bounty from my sister’s garden…

  21. Shirvonne

    my most fav thing about summer is the outdoor events and cute little dresses…oh yeah and the vibrant colors as well

  23. Christine

    I love that even though I’ve been in the workforce for 8+ years, summer still still gives me this feeling of getting break from something.

  24. Erin Martinez

    My favorite things about summer are my two daughters and being able to stop the daily madness and hang out with them. It might be as simple as going to a park or as exciting as going to see a band we both love. Either way, enjoying moments with them whenever we choose equals summer to me. Something I hope will continue even after they have started their own lives as young women.

    Although I don’t like really hot days, I do love the warm nights they produce. That and shave ice are my favorite things about Summer.

  27. Rebecca

    I enjoy a more flexible work schedule. If it’s nice out and I have plans I can usually shift my work load around and enjoy some extra time off one day or another.

    The things I am loving most about summer lately is how excited everyone gets when it’s coming. The happy posts, the pictures, the projects. It’s just too fun!
