Lifeingrace Loves the Pleated Poppy!

by Edie Wadsworth on March 8, 2010

This is the best giveaway ever.

I say that about everything, don’t I?   “The best beef stew ever.”   “The best chocolate chip cookies ever.”    Okay, so I’m a drama queen.   Maybe I just get a little excited about stuff.    Is that so wrong?   Anyways, my friend Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy, my long lost roommate from Blissdom,  has made some custom goodies using my favorite colors.    Aren’t they awesome?  I want one of everything.     And all the items you see below will be packed up and sent to one lucky reader today.    Here are the ways you can enter the giveaway:    1.  subscribe to lifeingrace if you haven’t already, or   2.  update your subscription with my new URL address or 3.  Add the lifeingrace button to your blog or  4.  Mail me some cupcakes with buttercream icing.

After you’ve updated or whathaveyou, then leave a comment on this post telling me you’ve faithfully complied with all rules and regulations and I’ll try my best to pick you to win this loot from Lindsey. {If your links to me are already updated, then just go ahead and comment away!}


Oh how  I LOVE these fabrics!


You have until midnight on Monday March 8th to enter.  And Lindsey is giving you 10% of anything in her shop if you use the code ‘grace’.   You’ll love her shop and her blog and after spending two nights with her in Nashville,  I can tell you she is just as precious as she seems on her blog.   Even more so.  And she’s the fastest typer I’ve ever seen.

Oh how I miss my roomies!

Love these!


17 Ashley March 8, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I follow you & your inspirational blog in my google reader. Not sure where you live – but I think its much father south than me so by the time buttercream icing cupcakes got to your doorstep they would be frozen from New England weather. Sorry!


18 Vicki March 8, 2010 at 2:01 pm

Oh the colors are just fab. The sweet design…the poppy pins…oh I would just love to win.

(details…I am a follower. I read each and every post. I see when you add a new one on my iGoogle page. Oh and I love your pictures.)

Finally, I’d send you some cupcakes with buttercream frosting but I just got done baking super soft sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting that are TO DIE FOR!!!!!

Hi Edie!

I have recently discovered “Life in grace” through a dear friend. I used to be of the mindset that getting married and having kids meant an end to fun adventure. However, after reading your blog it appears that I’m wrong! I want to be you when I grow up (I’m 23) and homeschool my kids and redecorate and have a craft room and bake and read! Thanks for being so inspiring!


P.S. The pleated poppy goodies are just fabulous!


92 Kelly Noonan March 9, 2010 at 1:35 am

Wowsers…this IS really the best giveaway. EVER. Lifeingrace + Pleated Poppy goodies + red AND turquoise TOGETHER…as Elaine says on Seinfeld. SHUT.UP!

I subscribe (and happy I do) and have your new URL…I tried to send the cupcakes ;) – however, the post office said they ‘had’ to open the package (as I sent it media mail and it’s all subject to opening)…all I have to show is the return to sender box from the post office. Really? No…we just finished our cupcakes yesterday…if I would have known, I would have baked you a cake!

peace and blessings to you -
catherine s.


109 Paula March 9, 2010 at 1:33 pm

enter me in this fun contest~!
Thanks, paula


110 Kim Setser March 9, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I’ve posted your little square on my blog and am so excited that I figured out how to do that! This post and the “fabric” reminded me that I need to blog about my grandmother. How, you say, did I come to that connection? You see, she passed away this week and one of the treasures I came home with was a hand-made quilt made by her many many years ago (so long that some of the squares are missing).I’d better get on over to my blog and start writing.
These poppies are beautiful (just had another idea, I gotta get away from here!!!)


111 Pink and Polka Dot March 9, 2010 at 2:07 pm

man…how did i miss this? miss you both too! those items are beautiful-ness!


112 katy b March 9, 2010 at 3:04 pm

115 Mandi March 9, 2010 at 5:50 pm

I subscribe…and I’d send you cupcakes but I live in Canada and by the time they got to you, I think they would be that good. But I’d do it if it ensured I won these qt’s. Hehe. :)

i rarely subscribe to blogs, but with how much i love the covered notebooks, i thought i’d peek around. it’s beautiful here. i love it. so, i’ll stay. =) subscribed.

i’m pretty infatuated with your aqua armoire. there was one like that at pottery barn a few years ago that i was obsessed with and regret not purchasing!


126 The Tiny Homestead March 10, 2010 at 3:33 am

127 Sam March 19, 2010 at 3:53 pm

I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and hope you take lots of pictures of your new house to share with everyone. When you finish Harry Potter, might I recommend Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan or Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – both series are excellent and extremely fun to read.
