{lucky me: an esty giveaway win}

I love etsy and was thrilled when I won a shopping credit with the etsy seller, burlap+blue

This win goes wa-a-a-a-y back to May of last year when I won a giveaway at A Soft Place to Land. Linda, the creator behind burlap+blue the etsy shop, also writes a blog under the same name of Burlap and Blue, has a wonderful selection of cake stands made from vintage plates and candle holders. She also makes gorgeous coasters. 

When I contacted her she made a beautiful cake stand just for me! I also chose the Paris subway map coasters. Paris is one of my absolute favourite cities, I couldn't resist.

I love red and this stand is just up my alley!

 The cake stand has been used many times, at my daughter's 16th birthday it was placed on top of another stand to create a tier to hold cupcakes.

In the summer we had mint lemonade and used the coasters.

They are now in my family room where I use them daily {and they get complements every time we have company}

 Now the stand sits atop of my bedroom dresser holding my favorite pieces of jewelry.

{See the pretty black onyx earrings? They are another giveaway win from a local etsy seller - who is as sweet in person as her jewelry - Mo'Funk Designs}

So pretty, I love it!
