Saturday Stop and Shop (and a 'lil Giveaway)

Happy New Year! If you stopped by to enter my New Year's Giveaway, it's still open!

Did Santa bring you any Christmas money this year? I have a little Christmas cash, and it's burnin' a hole in my pocket. Let me help you spend yours too. {wink}

~The Cat's Paw
Barbara's Lollipop Pink Swirl Coasters would make a great Valentine's Day gift for a special friend. I can see my favorite mocha-filled mug resting on one of these babies!

~Crafty Girls Workshop
One of my goals for the New Year is to try and work with patterns (I'm skeered!!). Anna's Flower Banner will make the perfect addition to Spring tea parties! Check out her 25 Yard Dash promo here. Get 10% off your order when you use the code: SERENITYNOW

I consider Holly an expert at finding frugal, yet stylish ways to decorate her home. Her monthly Knock-Off Party (geared towards Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, and Ballard Designs) is a treasure trove of ideas. The next one is scheduled for January 27th, so be sure to mark your blogging calendars! Holly also hosts a weekly Money Saving Tips link-up each Monday. A must-read if budgeting is your goal for the New Year.

~Laura Jane Designs
New Year, new blog design? If you've decided to focus on blogging and grow your site this year, a custom design is a great way to capture a reader's attention. Laura Jane has some beautiful designs!

Kristin's unique pieces want to pop off the screen and into my jewelry box. {wink} These sky blue topaz earrings are simple enough to be worn every day, but still say something special.

~The Shabby Chic Cottage
I couldn't believe Gina has these fab ruched towels listed in her clearance section, but she has to make room for new items somehow, right? To me, these are inspiration for a kitchen or bathroom makeover!

Do you have one of these guys yet? I used some Santa money to order one...not sure when it will come in, but it's gonna be like Christmas all over again! I'm really excited to be partnering with Silhouette. There will be some neat promotions coming up here at Serenity Now...if you head over to the Silhouette shop, please be sure to use the code SERENITY when you check out.

~Stitch Sense Designs
Nadir's cotton chenille facial scrubbers make me wish I was heading for the spa. Or maybe a really nice bathroom I don't have to share with the rest of the fam. Another great Valentine's Day gift idea...pair this set of two with a nice facial scrub, some soft classical music, and some chocolates. Or just treat yourself.

~Willow House
January is Double Hostess month with Willow House and Carmella would love to be able to bless you with free products. Contact Carmella to find out how to reap rewards when you share her online store and/or catalog with friends and family.

~Blessings Unlimited
I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY this weekend with a few items from my shop and from DaySpring (which owns Blessings Unlimited). A great way to ring in the New Year with a calendar, day brightener, greeting cards, and cute tissues! Stop over to Friday's post to enter to win! You can view my catalog here (Spring version coming soon!).

{Happy Shopping!}
