Meet Glitter & Bliss...a giveaway~

Welcome!! So glad you can join me at the old blog today...and I have a feeling you are about to be glad too. Just a feeling...stick with me here...

Today I want to introduce you to another one of my fabulous sponsors...Glitter & Bliss!



Glitter & Bliss is a line of crystal embellished jewelry and other lovely vintage-inspired gifts created by a team of twin sisters...Leslie and Laurel. Aren't they so cute?





Okay, so they don't look *exactly* like this anymore...now they are knockouts instead. But their celebrity-esque looks aside, these girls create really lovely gift items.







Things like these...




and these...



and these...



A while back, I was checking out their blog when I spotted this sweet canvas sign.




And I knew I had to have it...let me tell you why...

Mr. Two and I have a little "lovey" saying that we share.


One night as I was tucking Mr. Two into bed, I kissed him on the forehead and said "I love you to the moon and back."

His spontaneous response was, "That's the biggest love I ever saw."

It was so stinkin' cute, that I must have repeated the story to just about every person I talked to for the next few days.

Well, that Mr. Two, he's no dummy. And he listens intently...to just about everything. So he heard me retelling his sweet response to everyone that would listen. And the next time I told him "I love you to the moon and back," he immediately responded with "That's the biggest love I ever saw."

And now it's "our thing". I suspect it will be "our thing" forever. So when I saw this cute sign, I knew I had to have it.

I related this story to Leslie, and that sweet girl offered to send me the sign. Yes she did! It arrived a few days ago, and I ADORE it!! I'm in the process of finding the perfectly perfect spot for it, and when I do, I'll show you all!

But, in the meantime, the Glitter & Bliss gals would like to offer one reader of The Shabby Nest, their very own "To the moon and back" sign.


You know the drill...

1. Leave me a comment for one chance to enter.
2. Blog, tweet or facebook this giveaway and comment again with the link for another chance.


You can check out the Glitter & Bliss blog here....and their website here.

Good luck and have a great day~

I Love that, "that's the biggest love I ever saw!" I've been telling my son the same thing every night when I tuck him in, "sleep sweet little man, mommy & daddy love you very much, have precious dreams!" and now he says it along with me when i tell him, just melts my heart!

Precious sign! I would LOVE to win one! I say that to my 2-year-old every night, and his response is usually "Mommy, I love you to finny and beyond" . . . a loose translation from the famous Buzz Lightyear!!

Lauren said...

When I was little, my mom and I always used the phrase To the Moon and Back for many things such as love and unending forgiveness. Now as an adult, I say this to my daughter. Of course, being a much more of a realist, she asks questions like How far is it the moon? in reply to my loving statement! ha

This matte would portray so many memories for me!

Lauren said...
