take the cannoli giveaway!!!

Happy Monday and September! I have a wonderful treat for you today! 
Through blogging, I have met some of the most inspiring and sweetest friends who have blessed me so. One of these sweeties is Natalie from Take the CannoliShe is full of life, has a true heart and passion for the Lord, a love for vintage goodness, and is beyond talented! I will let Miss Natalie take it from here! I know that you are going to love her!  
Hey there lovely Vintage Grey readers, I'm so happy to be part of Heather's Happy place todayYou know everyday is a new day (no brainer right?!) Some days are fabulous while others require extra mascara to help accentuate the only thing I have going for me because I'm rockin' my pi's All-Day-Long. Though I have no idea what each day will bring I do know God is faithful and good.
Lamentations 3:22-23 says” Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are New Every Morning; great is Thy faithfulness”

And so I blog. About the everyday life as a wife and mama striving to become a better woman after God's own heart. That includes the good, bad and sometimes ugly. You'll find touches of crafts, fashion (hardly ever), DIY projects and if I'm feeling really spunky I may even toss in a recipe here and there. 

I’m Nat, the girl behind Take the Cannoli. I am twenty something (for just a few more weeks), wifey to Micah, mama to my two sweet babes, a Southern Californian girl, and a crafter of sorts. I am a lover of Jesus, coffee, all things vintage, the beach and any sweet treat!

I also own a little shop filled mostly with hand-stitched lovelies  a.k.a embroidered hoop art; both my blog and shop were created with the goal of wanting to give encouragement and inspiration to others. The pieces in my collection are inspired by affirmations, scriptures, hymns and any other little thing that brings me joy. My hope is that these hoops will be a blessing to those who have them displayed throughout their homes, craft stations or workspaces.

Speaking of hoops, I am giving away a piece from my new fall line, the Custom Mini Initial hoop! These new Initial Hoops would be the cutest hostess gift, baby arrival gift, stocking stuffer or the perfect addition to that wall collage you already have started! The winner will have the choice of a letter and will get to select the linen color, (black or natural) Each hoop created is accented with vintage lace making every piece unique as the placement of letter and type of lace will be different every time! 
Good Luck to you all and hope you'll stop by and say hi!

I told you she was the sweetest!! I am so excited for one of you to win one of her beautiful Initial Hoops!! 

:: To enter the giveaway, please enter through the Rafflecopter below, and I will be announcing the lucky winner on Friday! Good luck and have a beautiful day!!

  24. Great giveaway! =)

    Lets see...I am not a huge fan of fall, but if I had to choose something I love about it, it would be the way the sun shines through the leaves on my neighbors tree after it has begun to change colors.
