Baby Frills Giveaway!

It's that time boys and girls-- today begins the giveaway sponsored by Baby Frills, an online shop specializing in handmade baby accessories.

Up for grabs is what you see below--  a set of ruffled legwarmers for girls, or cuffed ones for boys.


The giveaway pair are 13 inches long, which will fit a baby to the thigh, a toddler above the knee, and a child below the knee. Or you can use them as arm warmers too.

Alex has a pair of the longer style and loves them!
They wash and wear really well.
Sassy, isn't she?

Thanks to my friend Erin for donating this item from her shop for the giveaway!

Little known fact-- Erin and I lived in the same hallway our freshman year at the University of Michigan, but we hardly knew each other back then.
It was a long hallway.
And narrow too.
Like a cruise ship.

And the rooms?
Miniature.
Not sure how I survived.

Anyway, Erin later married a guy we knew from ROTC, and we went to their wedding.
Then they went to ours.
We lost touch for a while as they were stationed in England, and eventually we reunited back in Idaho for an assignment out there.

Now they are in New Mexico, and have FOUR children.
As in, one more than three. I'm good with numbers.
Crazy, I tell you.
Erin homeschools her two oldest, and apparently has time left over to start a business.

I knew I didn't like her for some reason, but I never could put my finger on it.
Now I know-- overachiever.
Makes me look bad.

To enter the giveaway, visit Erin's Etsy site here. Look around a bit, and then leave a comment on this post that you visited her site, or what your favorite item is, or that I'm an awesome person. A winner will be randomly drawn this weekend. 
Don't be lame! Comment!
Why?
Because I'm nice!
I'm friendly!
I'm hungry!

And no excuses-- you don't have to have an account to comment, just use the "anonymous" option. But sign your name at the end of your comment so I know who you are.

These make great gifts, so even if you don't have a little one at home, 'tis the season for giving gifts.

Good luck!

And you're awesome.

Jennifer said...

These are too cute! I am going to have to check out that Etsy page :)

And good for you on the Flovent! Better for him than getting sick and needing a burst of oral steroids, right? Don't forget to rinse out his mouth afterwards (I'm amazed at how many providers don't tell their patients that...) ;)

Me and Mr. Wright said...

These are awesome. SOOO CUTE! I love the ones with the fur.

What else is awesome? Your blog. I have been reading for a while. Your kids are too cute, and you give me hope that being the wife of a fighter pilot will be "normal" somewhat. Even with deployments, training, etc. :)

And now I feel like a creeper.

Totally cute! I'm adopting a toddler from Ethiopia - those would be cute as she will have a temperature shock coming from Africa to Duluth, Minnesota in winter!

Maybe I am just too used to Alex's style, but I like the striped ruffles.

Oh, and you are AWESOME! Does acknowledging the awesomeness at least reserve me a pram in the appropriate size (gender still TBD)?

John said...

Jess said our odds would be better if I contributed as well. The owl onesie is awesome, almost as awesome as you!

Laura said...

Ruffles?? Yes, please! Reese and #3 would love it! And Erin's shop is great!!

I love cute little baby thighs in leg warmers!
My favs in her shop are the candy cane leg warmers (with the fur!) and the striped ruffled ones.
Adorable.

Those are fantastic! I can't see Carolyn wearing them (especially now, since she's taller than ME!) but my sweet god-daughter would love them!

I miss you, Erin! Let me know next time y'all come thru the Falls. I need to squish those sweet Schore baby cheeks again!
