The January Giveaway

This month less is more. There is only one item in January's giveaway but it's a good one!

I often get PR emails and most of the time I delete. But I recently got an email with this little guy in it and was in love. I love both horses and driftwood and this piece brings the two together. I emailed the company to see if they'd be interested in gifting the piece for my monthly giveaway, and they said yes!





This statue is a heavy carved piece of driftwood in the shape of a horse. It measures roughly 14" x 15". It is SO pretty, especially in person. You can really see the detail. Thank you, Nadeau!


To enter, answer this question:

What is your favorite animal and why?

  2. So pretty! My favorite animal is definitely the Owl. I have had this weird fascination with them since I was a kid and own a handful of awesome owl jewlery and home decor items. Looks like it's catching on too bc now they are everywhere!

  11. Oh... it's a tie. I love elephants and owls. I have tons of both. My love of elephants comes from my grandmother. She had hundreds of them when I was growing up... from all over the world. She would always tell me "an elephant never forgets". My love of owls come from my first and middle initials AL sounding like "owl" when my aunt would say them like the name Al. It was years before I realized she wasn't calling me "owl". Ha.

  54. Well, I have three dogs and three cats, and if I choose one species over the other there may be an unpleasant canine/feline uprising within the household. I'll be extremely diplomatic and say that I love all animals, but the ones in my home are the closest to my heart.

    Lovely giveaway!
