It's my birthday GIVEAWAY!


Today, is my 30th birthday and to celebrate, I am sharing with you 30 Loves. In 30 years I think I have a fairly good understanding of who I am, what inspires me and what I love. And when you love something, you want to share it with the world so that they can love it too...kind of like the love of God. For Loves 27-30 however, I am going to shake it up a little and will give away 1 of each item.

If you missed the previous Loves you can check them out here.

** Note: these are in no particular order...**

27. The Mini Stella Library by Marie-Louise Gay






This is my very favourite children's series. The adventures of Sam and Stella epitomize the innocence of a child. Marie-Louise Gay is a children's author and writes other stories about Stella and Sam such as Yuck, a Love Story. In the Mini Stella Library, Stella teaches Sam all about the ocean, the sky, the forest and snow! These stories are really sweet and of course, Ella LOVES them! They retail in the US for $120.00 (why? I have NO IDEA- except maybe because they are awesome).

28. Babette's Feast: My favourite movie. Here is the synopsis...
In 19th century Denmark, two adult sisters live in an isolated village with their father, who is the honored pastor of a small Protestant church that is almost a sect unto itself. Although they each are presented with a real opportunity to leave the village, the sisters choose to stay with their father, to serve to him and their church. After some years, a French woman refugee, Babette, arrives at their door, begs them to take her in, and commits herself to work for them as maid/housekeeper/cook. Sometime after their father dies, the sisters decide to hold a dinner to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his birth. Babette experiences unexpected good fortune and implores the sisters to allow her to take charge of the preparation of the meal. Although they are secretly concerned about what Babette, a Catholic and a foreigner, might do, the sisters allow her to go ahead. Babette then prepares the feast of a lifetime for the members of the tiny church and an important gentleman related to one of them. Written by Ed Cannon 




This is a region one DVD so it will only be available to North Americans unless you have a N.A. DVD player or you computer will allow.

30. Kinfolk Magazine: Why do I love Kinfolk? I love it because it is naturally beauty and this blog is all about celebrating everything naturally beautiful. They only publish in print and on ipad because they feel that their work is best read, when you have time to sit down, in the evening with a cup of tea. Kinfolk is a community of artists simplifying gatherings of one to a few. I have read it and it is a truly beautiful experience.

The winner will receive one copy of the volume two.

Happy, happy birthday, Krista!! What a way to celebrate!

Btw, someone gave Sammi 2 of those mini Stella books a few years ago, and they're just sooo sweet! I had no idea of their value - guess I should hunt them down and put their covers back on...LOL

Anyway, I already follow your blog. :-)
