Closed: Fabulous Friday Giveaway: Peaches & Palm Trees

{Confused why you didn't see a winner for Noodles&Milk? We are leaving contests up until Saturday! But, get excited! The following contest will stay open until June 30th!}



I am very excited to introduce you to my friend and her new new Esty shop, Peaches & Palm trees!

Kristin is a newlywed and lives in Orlando with her dashing husband and darling dog, Jax. Feel free to check out their fun life on her blog, The Newly Mrs. Morgan.

Kris and I go waaaay back--to the very day we moved to Atlanta, in fact, nearly 20 years ago (yikes!). She and her sweet sister, Kelly, came to visit us and play in our moving boxes. Fun times. Hey we were only 9! (Side note, her other sister, Alex, was a little young to play with us but now she is a college grad! how are we so old?)

ANYWAY.

I was always mad jealous of their family's creativity. Their aunt used to make us green pancakes in the shape of 3-leaf clovers on St. Patty's day, for pity's sake. Yes, we were impressed! I think Kristin got most of her talent from her lovely mom who has an incredible knack for wedding planning (she just started her own wedding business, too!)

ANYWAY. This is what happens when you know someone for so long you want to keep talking about them. Let's get to the good stuff!

After years of creating custom-made gifts for friends and their babies, Kris was finally persauded to open her own Etsy store, Peaches & Palm trees. C was a proud recipient of a 5-pack of onesies and she wore them to death--they were the only things that fit her when she was a newbie and the only things that were cute, too!

Example 1:

She is really good at making college-mascot inspired gear:



or even copying the pattern of your nursery theme onto a onesie and blanket:



or just being witty as seen on this onesie for a boy:

Are you convinced yet? She is pretty creative, right?!

  • Want it but want to try your luck first? Win it!
One lucky winner will receive a set of two custom onesies inspired by the best of summer. Perfect for upcoming baby showers, or for your own little one to sport, her hand-painted onesies will be made to your requested size for a boy or a girl (or one for each!).

Isn't that...

(yet another example of her creative skills!)

Mandatory first entry (this one is fun!) Leave me a comment telling me what you love about summer. This will serve as Kristin's inspiration for the onesies so get creative!

Dorky Val said...

The thing I love about summer is that it is the only time I get to really bond with my younger sister and mom. None of us are in school so we can just watch a movie at night after my mom gets home or me and my sister can walk to get an iced coffee or a boba! Now we can take the baby to enjoy our walks!

What I love about summer is that this is the first year I get to spend it with my little miracle angel! She was never supposed to be possible and holding her in my arms and watching her grow will be a memory I will never forget! I can't wait to get her in the pool - she adores the water!

cathy said...

OH the beach is my special getaway!!!When we were children, as we would go over the big expansion bridge at our beach,my dad would get us to lower all of the windows and breathe in the beach air and we would all say"I've got the beach fever!!!" Now, a long time later we still do it everytime and even our little grandaughters are doing it too...and the name of our boat, guess what..The Beach Fever!!!!
