GIVEAWAY from the Browns!!!

Hey yall!! In honor of our new blog face lift and that I am giddy that I am in my third trimester and you are catching me at a good time before I start to slowly lose my mind =)...I AM HAVING A GIVEAWAY!!!

Most of you know that my Mom has her own business now, Scarlett Boutique! She makes all these custom, handmade gifts that are just fabulous!! So I am going to give away one of her custom, painted wooden boxes. You can go see some examples here, here, or here! These boxes can be used for ANYTHING!! Some of our friends have used them for recipe boxes, prayer request boxes, I use mine to hide my candy from the kids =).

The box that I will be giving away will be a square one, customized to as far as your imagination will take you!! Mom is really talented and has a really good eye at making just what you are looking for!! Seriously, go to her blog and check out all her posts and you will see some great stuff and maybe get some ideas of what you want your to box to look like.

Here are the rules:

1. Post a comment with what you would use your box for and your color / design needs, get one entry.
2. Become a follower to Footballs and Crowns (or already you are a follower), get one more entry.
3. Become a follower to Scarlett Boutique (or already you are a follower), get one more entry.
4. Post about my giveaway on your blog and get 3 more entries!! Make sure you direct back to me and Scarlett Boutique, as well let me know that you did this so I can account for all your entries!!!
5. The giveaway will be open through this Friday, June 26th - I will draw this weekend!!!

Okay, since you won my giveaway... it's only fair that I win this! Right? Ha ha ha!! I am a follower, and I will post and follow your mom's ! =)

I will probably use it to hold jewelry on my dresser! =)
Or stuff on the girls' dresser, because I love all the princess stuff! =)

Oooooh wait.... the Razorback one is my fave! So so cute!
And for some reason I can't get the website to allow me to follow the SB blog. It just displays the "website not found" page. But I'll keep trying!!

I LOVE your moms boxes!!!! I would like to have one for my oldest daughters room, she would love it - to put some of "HER" things away in.....away from her lil bro and sister!!!! I'm following you all ready and now your mom!

I LOVE the new blog look, very creative & cute! I'm really excited about your give away! Of course I am followers of both. :) I'm about to do my blog giveaway post about your site right now! :) If I won I would choose mine to be purple, sage green & gold, some of my favorite colors.
I love to write, so when I hear a quote or thought I just adore I write it down on the prettiest paper near me & keep it. I currently keep them in an already full jewelry box, but I would love to have something to put them in & pass down to Abby when she is a teen so she can have the things I loved in it & add her own
A couple in my purse right now ready for a home:
"To educate a boy, you educate an individual. To educate a girl, you educate a community."
"I knew I might fall short on some things, but it wouldn't be because I didn't try."
"Light radiates light!"
"Love is friendship on fire!"
Hope you have a great day Rach!

Dang my post is so long ah ha

Your mom got a blog makeover too!! Looks great!!

I would use my box for decoration only - in my Living Room. I have some VERY bare coffee tables and one of your mom's boxes would be perfect on one of them!! My living room colors are dark brown and cream/ivory with splashes of red throughout the room. There's even a little bit of gold trim on things here and there.

I'm already a follower of your mom's blog! And of course, yours!! I'll post about the giveaway on my blog, too!

Good luck to me!!! =) lol

OF COURSE I AM a follower of the Browns already and just added on to Scarlett Boutique today! I am telling you I fell in love with her site I plan to be a long time customer! But anyhoo I would make a box for a recipe card holder I have been looking for one for about a year now!!..I loved the look of the rooster & feathers on top of the box with maybe a different design rather than stripes and some kind of bible verse dealing with cooking/food/ that sorta idea on the inside but loved the painted roosters on the inside as well...I would love to win! Crossing my fingers!!-Allie

Ya'll, her mom is GOOD, I've already ordered 2 things from her and they are FAB!

Anywho, of course I would love a box too!

I would probably want one to go in my bathroom, so I would want it gold and silver and maybe a touch of baby blue! I can picture it now:D.

I am a follower of BOTH you guys as well:)

I'm a new follower to both Scarlett Boutique and Footballs and Crowns......found thru Tara's blog! I love your mom's boxes. I would like one to keep my jewelry in and would probably like one in gold and silver!

Sweet Simplicity said...

ooh, how fun! I would love to have a box to store some of my needles and thread in or maybe to just hide candy. :)

Price Family said...

I L-O-V-E the razorback one! That is WAY cute! I would keep my jewelry in it next to my bed, b/c I have misplaced my wedding ring a few times now! So that would be a good idea for me! Tell your mom she is doing a fabulous job!

Hello Rachel, I am one of Maggie's sister and saw your giveaway on her blog. I just love the wooden boxes. I am now a follower on your mom's and your blog and I will copy my sisters post about your giveaway and add it to my blog.

If I won I would use the box to first finally get my little girl potty trained by using it as a treasure box. She loves girly things and I think would put the finishing touch on getting her to actually ask to go to the potty. Then afterwards I would use the box as her jewelry box. She doesn't have one and I can't seem to keep her out of mine. Haven loves the colors pink and purple and gymnastics. So those are the colors and theme I would choose.
