Ok, so a few more details about MY giveaway gift…at a $174 value

Below is the itemized list of what’s in my gift, and in the event that you DON’T win, you can find them still. To gift to yourself or to others!  It’s a tradition of mine to share a pretty purse, and my favorite treat is still the same…


Click on the links below {some affiliate} if you’d like to see more info, or grab an item for a friend:

  • Kendra Scott necklace ($65 value)–I love this necklace that goes with everything. Apparently Kendra Scott has been around a while, but her line is NEW to me!
  • Polkadot clipboard($7)–My friend Jen Hadfield created this cuteness, and I got my own a few months ago and LOVE it! I think it’s fun to have something more serious a bit glammed up!
  • Camera iphone case ($10 value)–I’m obsessed with this case, and so are random people that I walk past on the street or in stores, because I get asked about it pretty much every day I go out in public (most think it’s a real camera, not realizing it’s my phone case and doesn’t function as a camera). The art teach at my kids school (who is a great friend) got one after she saw mine, and now all the kids at school see me with mine a strapped across my body, and say, “you have one like the art teacher” and I have to say….”she has one like me!” Ha ha! Mine is actually hot pink and hers is black, but I decided I needed black, too. It’s only $10 on Amazon, so why not? It’s got an amazing long strap that I wear across my body, so it stays put when I don’t have my purse with me. It’s truly my favorite thing.
  • Gray Merona purse ($35 value)–I’ve given a purse away with each Favorite Things Giveaway because I love colorful and fun purses! It’s one of those things that is hard for me to buy myself, but I love having a variety.
  • Mason Jar Salt n Pepper Shakers ($10)–The link isn’t the exact item, but similar. I found this set at a Texas grocery store–HEB, I love the cute handle, but couldn’t find that on Amazon.
  • Ghiradelli milk Chocolate covered sea salt cashews($5 value)–I’ve given these away the past 3 years, I LOVE them so much! I keep them in the freezer, and sneak a handful when I need a jolt in the afternoon.
  • Say NO to Auto and Get Focused Photography books ($42)–I forgot to include them in my main image, but I HAVE to give these away, too!


Here is a bit of an up close look:



Now tell me which item is NEW TO YOU or something you’d love to win in this gift set??
