Simply Lovely, giveaway edition

As promised, a giveaway to celebrate five hundred posts here at New Every Morning.

I'd love to share with you a few items that I think are indeed simply lovely.

~ My favorite Lollia hand cream in the "Wish" fragrance.  It reminds me of a summer breeze at the beach.  Fresh and light.  (Click on the link for a full description of the fragrance.)

~ A package of ten Caldrea French Pop-up Sponges. I can't think of a child who wouldn't do a stack of dishes eagerly if they get to watch the magic sponge expand before their eyes! (And I have to admit I like that part too!)

~ A 4x8" woodgrain chipboard journal kit, from Studio Calico.  It contains two pieces of thick chipboard and a 60 page bound pad of ledger/graph paper.  All that's missing is your unique binding and embellishment! (You can still find them here, though it looks like Studio Calico is sold out of this exact kit.)

~ A package of Toffifay Chocolates. "A Whole Hazelnut in Chewy Caramel with Chocolate Hazelnut Filling and Chocolate." What's not to love? (Remember when I mentioned these in my European chocolates post??? About a week after writing that, I found them at the grocery store I frequent. I think I will be keeping them stocked!)

~ The Republic of Tea's Strawberry Blueberry Green Tea, made exclusively for The Fresh Market.  You should know that I adore this tea. And I don't usually like green tea. But my wonderful Mom introduced this one to me, and now I stock up whenever I'm in Asheville (or anywhere else with a Fresh Market.)  It's wonderful hot...but I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be even better over ice this summer.

The wooden parat is not included in this giveaway, but I get lots of questions whenever I photograph this tray, so here's the source!  I found it at Wisteria's storefront in Dallas, but you can order it online. They are found objects, so the color and size will vary, but I had the hardest time choosing, as they are each so unique and gorgeous.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment telling me two things:

1. Share something you think is simply lovely.
2. Let me know how you found New Every Morning!

This giveaway will close Friday March 2 at midnight EST. I'll announce a winner on Saturday!  (US only please, unless internationals are willing to help with shipping.)

What a fun giveaway! If I remember correctly we found each other's blogs by leaving comments on Ali Edwards blog. Does that sound right? I always enjoy reading your blog!

Something Simply Lovely:The first day of Spring happens this month! I am ready for a new season and so glad it's just around the corner.

Hey Kimber- I tried to comment from my phone way back when, but wanted to let you know I'm following your blog! It's Dre from Baylor! Also, hoping maybe your next move is to San Antonio maybe?!!? We have tons of military and home school families at our PCA church in New Braunfels (about 30 min north of SA). Keep us posted!
