We have a WINNER! (three actually!)

I tricked you when I said I was picking A winner for these earrings by Trillium....I'm picking three! Thanks to everyone who submitted your favorite holiday traditions. I chose my three favorites...and here they are:

#1 Jen for her tradition
"My favorite tradition is being Elfy and Elfo with my sister for our 2 nieces. For the past 10 years Elfy and Elfo (2 of Santa's elves) have been sending and leaving little gifts for Maya and Grace during the several weeks leading up to Christmas." Thanks for sharing Jen! And thank you for teaching me the word/name Elfo...I plan on using it. A lot. I also have to admit, that when I went to your blog to find your contact info, I came across this photo of Mr. T. Quite frankly, Mr. T tipped the scales in your winning direction.

best. costume. ever.

Winner #2 Gets these great gold dangles...drum roll please.....Myisha! You Win! I loved your tradition of picking themes for the celebration. Great idea.

And our last (but not least) winner is Celeste B. Celeste won these snowflake earrings from Trillium. Her winning tradition is dressing up her dog Ollie in sweaters, drinking hot cider, and listening to non-traditional Christmas music. I love it!
So...big winners, message me with your address and I'll send you your prizes.
Happy Holidays Everyone!

Field Trip!

Today I headed out to Olde Burien to visit some of my old friends and sell Sweet Petula at a trunk show. Olde Burien is where my first shop was located. I love Olde Burien! People who don't know about this great little area are often shocked at how cool it is. I have such good memories of this neighborhood. My trunk show was at Zizia, which is the old Sweet Petula. The photo above is of the Danish Bakery mascot, which is directly next door....dangerous.
(fyi: this is one of the best places within miles of Seattle to buy a birthday cake...the only trick is convincing the owner, Lola, to make it!)
827 SW 152nd street
Olde Burien, Washington 98168
(for the record I HATE the "Olde" was "Old" for years. We voted. My side didn't win. I hate the "Olde"...but I guess I already mentioned that.)

More Zizia

I love these! They are baby t-shirts that predict the future of your child!
