Friday (and a little giveaway)

I did a little shopping this week while making a return to Indigo. I ordered a candle online that arrived shattered, but discovered that when I went to return instore there was an amazing sale going on!

I scooped up a new candle (hello! $9.50 for the large jar Voluspa candles in Laguna, regular $30) a pair of floral sheers I have been coveting for what seems like ages. They keep popping up in all my favorite instagram feeds and I am tired of wiping goop and sap off my scissors with all the garden trimmings Wren and I have been doing to bring in the house. And I bought my first ever key chain.

Yes, you heard right. My FIRST key chain. I always only have a house key and car keys so I just attach the two and call it a day. I thought this little one was so adorable and happy that I finally took the plunge (don't laugh guys!).

I wish I could pull an Oprah and give you the car key too. Sorry, I'm too average and this isn't a highly profitable blog so we'll just settle with the key chain. 
(look at it like I'm saving you a ton of taxes! you're welcome)


I also wish I could buy like 5,000 and give you each one (divide that by 1,000 for how many surprises I have next week though!) but since I was only able to snap up one extra I thought me and one of you could be long distance besties and rock matching key chains. 


How grade 5 of me, right?

I just love the simple white leather, gold ring, and adorable stamped lettering.

I promise, there will be no single-white-female-style stalking on my end!




And because it's Friday, of course I had to share a quick shot of some fun we've been having outside with this beautiful weather. Wren has transformed our sidewalk into the ultimate happy-zone.

Fun, I just have my keys on the ring. You would think I could have something a little fancier. I am going to visit my niece and take her and my grandson shopping and lunch this weekend!! Thanks for the giveaway. Di@Cottage-wishes

Holly, I rarely have time to comment but i follow your lovely blog.
I've entered into the draw for the gorgeous key fob but didn't say what I was intending to do at the weekend. Serious gardening!
Hope my back holds out :)

Cute keychain :)...I just look at key chains as another fun accessory, so I have had many over the years! This weekend, I'll be planning an upcoming trip to England!

Kristi said...

Hey there! this weekend I am hoping to relax by our little outdoor blowup pool- if the weather co-operates, and if not, then tackling my mess of a craft room. I have been putting it off for far too long!

Jenna said...

This weekend...hmmm...I'm hoping to relax! We've been going like crazy the last couple of weeks, and I could use a day to just chill. We'll see if that happens though. Things like: finish the powder room reno and paint bunk beds are up there on the "to do" list. :)

Katy said...

Those are simple yet adorable!
This weekend we're driving down from Austin to San Antonio for a weekend of fun!

Tiffany Kopper said...

My keys are only on keys, no adorable ring...I love the simplicity of this one! And we're having an indoor camp out because we are housebound for medical reasons. Operation "make the best of it." ;-)

Mandolyn said...

We're participating in a marriage conference at church, having a bonfire Saturday night with family and neighbors, and hopefully finally painting the living room and entryway on Sunday!
