Spring Fever : Giveaway

please comment if you know so I can give credit.

Hi all! Are you getting tired of me going on and on about spring yet? I sure hope not! I've always liked and appreciated spring, but for some reason this year I'm just madly in love with it. No, I'm head-over-heels kind of madly in love with it. I just can't stop looking at all things springy and pretty. Maybe it's because I just love the color pallette of spring. I love faded-ness, but it seems to be really over done lately so I'm finding myself really appreciating all things rich in color and cheer.

Every now and then, you stumble across someone online and you know there's a connection. You know that if you and that person were neighbors, you would be constantly at each other's home, nestled in for a good movie or even chatting lazily over coffee, swapping recipes and "how-tos". That's how I feel about Beth. Beth is the owner, designer and creator of all things sweet at Pink Berry Pie. I've only talked with her a few times via convo, but I know... if she were my neighbor, she'd always let me borrow her new shirts and I'd always let her borrow my new shoes. Because, of course, if we were neighbors, we'd be the same size in everything. But enough of me speaking for her, how about we let Beth tell us about herself:

Tell us about yourself.

My happily ever after is just beginning. I recently married the sweetest guy there is. Since the whirlwind of wedding planning is over, I had to find something to keep myself busy and so Pink Berry Pie was born. Besides starting a shop on Etsy, I've been settling in and decorating our new home. I simply love flea marketing, vintage aprons and baking. And I live for summer vacation.

{If Beth and I were neighbors, we would spend our Saturdays scavenging the local flea markets and antique shops before coming home to play around with a new cupcake recipe we found.}



Tell us three *random* facts about yourself.

*I've become obsessed with baking and decorating cupcakes.

*The one thing you'll always find in my purse...pink Orbit gum.

*I absolutely adore white, chippy paint.

{I know, she sounds like a load of fun and good cheer with cupcake icing on top! Right?}


Where do you get your inspiration?
 I love visiting the fabric shop, taking my time walking up and down the aisles searching for just the right patterns. I'm always drawn to ginghams and polka dots. So sweet and simple. They remind me of a summer night spent on the porch swing catching fireflies.


{It's like she already knows what my childhood summers were like.}

What's your favorite thing about spring?

Spring is a fresh, new start. The weather warms up, the trees turn the perfect shade of green and flowers bloom. It just makes you feel alive.


{Exactly.}


I know, she's super sweet right? Well besides being super sweet, Beth is also super talented. Check out these cute things from her shop:

Just darling aren't they? And there's even more cute stuff at her shop that I didn't post.

I know not all of you out there have little ones, but I'm sure you know someone who does or is expecting... ;)


Isn't that marvelous?

  20. REGINA... WHEN YOU WROTE ...""-I love long conversations, especially when they happen late at night - I'm definitely a night owl, I can stay up all night, any night, but I hate getting up in the morning no matter how much sleep I've gotten - ""
    I am the same way for sure!!! I find that most of my friends have left facebook by a certain time at night...leaving me a little "lost" if you will. Sounds as though we would be good as friends on here. I will send a request! Hope to chat with you soon!!! thanks! ~~ Heather Law
