Giveaway For Someone So Special

I know each of us have someone that has really touched our heart and is extremely special to us. I would love to hear from all of you who that person is. Just tell me why you think this person should receive our Enchante pillow. Our mistake makes a wonderful giveaway. We had an order for the Enchante slip, but somehow it ended up as a pillow. So what could be better then for us to share our mistake as a giveaway to someone who is so special.

We will pick the winner next Friday the 28th We will wrap the pillow up with a special note from the person who wins the giveaway and ship it off to your special person.

With the holidays just around the corner we have started early offering a special sale on our Etsy shop. Starting today through Sunday the 23rd, we have a buy one pillow slip at regular price and get the second one for half off. Just thought I would let all of you know.

With the weekend fast approaching I do hope you all have a special one.

Join Me For a Posh Get Away...

Before I announce the winner of my creative giveaway, I thought it would be fun to travel to a new destination and enjoy the elegance of the Le Pavillon Hotel Built in 1907. The Hotel is a member of Historic Hotels of America. It is truly elegance at it’s best. So come along I have a suite reserved just for us.

As we arrive at the hotel you will notice the fifteen-foot monumental limestone statues that flank the grand entrance to the hotel. They represent "Peace and Prosperity." One statue is depicted holding the Horn Of Plenty, while the other has doves resting on her shoulder denoting peace, they are circa 1880.

The grand lobby is adorned with beautiful Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers, exquisite antiques and priceless paintings. There is so much to see in this beautiful lobby, I think we should sit for awhile and take it all in. Notice the pair of Louis XV Bronze Cherubs they are fabulous.

Let’s do lunch in the Crystal Room.

Then off to the Palace Suit.

I know you will love the decor in this suite, especially the hand carved wooden fireplace mantle, Circa mid 17th century. It is solid mahogany, and was intricately hand carved for a European Castle. The crème de la crème of this particular suite is the extremely rare marble bathtub. Purported to have been owned by Napoleon Bonaparte. It is hand carved from one single large block of white carrera marble. It is one of only three known to exist in the world today. One of them is proudly displayed in The Louvre Museum in Paris, France, while the other is in a private collection.

Now to the roof top pool and spa.

I do hope you have enjoyed our little get away to the Le Pavillon Hotel in New Orleans.

Now I would like to announce the winner of my Creative Giveaway. I must say that I was so impressed with all your creative ideas and I thank you for participating. And the winner is... Karen from Brayton Homestead Interiors. Her suggestion of Majestic Ascent will look fabulous on the new pillow which I will post a picture of this coming week. Thank you all for entering my giveaway.

Have a wonderful and peaceful week ahead,
