Found Treasures for a Happy New Year Give Away

As we get ready to say good bye to 2015 and hello to 2016 I have been packing and getting ready for closing on Junk Chic Cottage at the end of January.  

Packing up and bubble wrapping my chippy's that I will hopefully have a new cottage to put them in soon.

Lots of packing to do!

Lot's of these boxes everywhere!



The good news is that while I was cleaning, sorting, organizing and packing I found two of these wine purse's left from my girlfriend party.  So lucky you.  I am going to do a give away of these two bags.

All you have to do is leave me a comment! Yep that's it!  Easy Peasy!  I will throw all your names in a hat (or most likely a moving box lol!) and will draw two out.

So if you would like one of these cute wine purses just leave me a comment below.  If you are a no reply blogger please leave me your email so I can get a hold of you if your name is picked.

These are insulated so they would make for a fabulous lunch tote too.  Every girl needs a wine purse right?!!!!


As we head on down to Happy 2016 I want to wish all of you a new year full of wonderful blessings and much inspiration.

Happy 2016!
Kris

  12. Packing up is never fun, is it? I don't know what it is, but every time we've moved, it seemed like every other box was marked "kitchen." I guess we have a lot of kitchen stuff. :) Can't wait to see your new place in 2016!

  15. I, too, am in the middle of packing. The good thing for me is that I have no deadline. Don't know if that's good or bad. Am so anxious to see what the Lord has in store for you. I know you will make a loving home where ever you are.

    Happy New Year dear friend!

  25. you have taught me something new, i appreciate that. i have never heard of a wine purse. i am guessing it is the size. but do folks really put a wine bottle in there? i would not put it past some folks, they love their wine & Virginians are wine lovers. i am a wine lover depending on the wine, but i have never put on in my purse before. hope you had a nice Christmas. hoping your New Year will be a great one.

  28. These are absolutely adorable! I know it is sad packing up your home, but new adventures are awaiting you both just around the corner! Love and hugs to you sweet friend!

  29. Those wine purses are so cute - I loved them when you showed them in the post about your girlfriends' party! I don't envy you all the packing and moving, that's for sure. I did it 3 times in 4 years and I think that's why I am so adamant about being in this house for the long haul. A person needs to know where they are going to be laying their head next week and next month...the uncertainty is so stressful. I am thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers, sweet Kris. I know something wonderful will come up and you will create a new dream cottage wherever that may be. Big hugs - xoxo

  30. OH Kris, I am probably your only blogger friend who is happy you are MOVING !!! Yay!
    Why am I happy? Because we get to see you transform all your chippy pieces and place them differently in a new cottage. And new is always fun is it not?
    It will look and feel like all your beautiful pieces will be new pieces found all over again. Just like the big down size move Mary Alice just did, all her pieces I hardly recognize, they look so different in different placement in a small cottage that belongs in every magazine out there.
    This is going to happen for you as well.
    I so wish it were me now moving :)

    As for your giveaway !! It's a good one my dear.

    See you soon

    Xx

    Happy Packing

  40. Kris, I know even with the hopes of a new home...leaving one you have loved thru the years is kind of hard to do. I think of you packing your lovely things and I pray you will be so thrilled in your new home. Where ever you go , your sweetheart, Terry , will be at your side. When you have the love of family, that is a great help in adjusting. I am wishing you a healthy, peaceful New Year. Love, Susie

  51. Happy New Year! I've never heard of a wine purse....could they be used to sneak wine into a gathering? ๐Ÿ˜€

    ReplyDelete
  52. Kris, while I don't envy you the job of packing up, It is kind of exciting to know that a new world will be opening up for you. I have never heard of a wine purse, but what a great idea to take your treats into the movie theatre and no one would be the wiser. Unless you were a guy alone!! Happy New Year my friend and my resolution is that you find another wonderful cottage soon..Judy

    ReplyDelete
  53. wow, packing is a lot of work. Hope all the chippies make it to the new home safely. If it's not too late, I'd just love the pink one! Might as well be a wino in style !!

  54. not a fan of packing moving boxes...but looks like an exciting year ahead for you

    ReplyDelete
  55. It is so sad to see all your boxes all packed. But just think you will have a new home to put your mark on and I can hardly wait to see what you do. I know that it will be terrific. Hope that Terry gets good news soon. At least if you go to Florida you can have flowers all year long.
    wishing you and Terry Happy New Year. This year is going to be great for you! I know that you had a terrific Christmas.
    Hugs dear friend,

  70. How cute are they? It's amazing what you find when you are packing up to move, Kris! I remember our packing for our move. After 21 years it was a lot of purging, donating, giving away ~ really thinking about what we were going to be bringing with us to a much smaller home. Seeing your boxes brings me back!

    Happy New Year! And thanks for hanging around while I was gone. : )

  74. Oh my word! Looking at those boxes gives me hives ~ :) I moved so many times in such a short time and it's soooo much work. I'm offering you all the positive support and encouragement you might need. One thing I can say is that it affords us the opportunity to clear out, toss, donate, etc.

    You're always in my prayers for the perfect job for Terry as well as a delightful new home for you to create beauty!
