HAPPY GRATEFULNESS FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!!
YEE HAW!!!!! I’m so happy to announce the FOURTH official gratefulness Friday giveaway on Sammy Davis Vintage for two specific reasons: First, over the past few weeks I have had the blessings to meet SUCH amazing vintage lovers and thrift warriors on the Sammy Davis Vintage fan page.
I’ve shed tears of joy because I see just how enthusiastic and knowledgeable everyone is on styling vintage and shopping thrift. Everyday I learn something new from you and for THAT alone, I am FOREVER grateful!
Second, I am REALLY stoked to announce today’s giveaway because it’s the first of many contests I hope to do with online vintage fashion stores.
No matter where you live — whether it be in NYC’s trendy Lower East Side or a small town in Wisconsin or seaside in Santa Monica, California! — you can find fabulous pieces of vintage fashion for you from a plethora of online sellers available at your fingertips thanks to sites like Etsy, Market Publique, Ebay, Sense of Fashion and independent vintage store’s sites, too.
I teamed up with Lady Jane Vintage for today’s AWESOME giveaway … and really guys, this giveaway is a gold mine!
I asked her to choose pieces totaling $50 for the prize pack of vintage pieces she was willing to part ways with and give a happy home with one of you. Well, it turns out Miss Lady Jane had too much fun putting together her prize pack — because I swear to you, this win is worth a lot more than $50!
Keep reading after the jump to see what you can win by answering today’s Gratefulness Giveaway question in the comments below, and to read my gratefulnes story of the week on perceiving each moment with gratitude and seeing beautiful abundance in the unexpected and the small!
The one thing that I DO know is NOT unexpected nor small — channeling your creativity through vintage fashion, which is ALWAYS a confidence-booster and all-around-positive thing. I’m sure you can all agree that a new vintage dress or purse can feel as good as buying something designer or getting a great piece on sale!
There’s just such personal euphoria around wearing vintage fashion, and I’m so happy that you are all going to enter today’s giveaway for a chance to win the Lady Jane Vintage prize pack below!
Hope you all have AMAZING weekends! I’m celebrating Easter with family in my hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and of course … hitting up my favorite hometown thrift spots and vintage stores ;-)
With gratefulness and gratitude for YOU!
I AM GRATEFUL FOR … MY PENNIES!
Meet my new best friend above: An ABUNDANCE JAR.
This jar was once a jam jar, and the pennies inside? They were once pennies lonely and lost on the streets on New York City.
We all have moments of feeling like we don’t have enough or that we’re not good enough. We compare ourselves to others — to what they own, what they’re doing, who they’re with, how they look and how we think they “feel” about their lives.
We convince ourselves that in comparison to others around us, we aren’t “enough” and should work harder to reach that “enough point.”
I’ve decided to DECIDE that everything in my life is enough, and that the small & unexpected are filled with the same abundance of having more than enough.
I’m channeling this new perspective in many ways, one of which is by placing pennies I find on the ground in my “abundance jar.” When moving and grooving through the busy-ness of life, we forget to notice the beauty in the small … because we are hurriedly moving past it!
By taking the time to look for beauty with the faith that it is there, we will see that everything in our lives is more than just good enough for us … it’s PERFECT for us.
Every penny I find on the ground is a moment of abundance, because **I** was the one to see it, take note and then stop to pick it up from the ground. It may just be a penny, but it represents that opportunity for abundance is in our lives in small and unexpected ways.
We don’t have to move through life quickly and rushed trying to “be enough.” We are enough just as we are right now, and our lives will always be filled with abundance because they are filled with the beauty of the small and the unexpected that is meant for us alone.
I can’t wait to show you all how my abundance jar fills with the many blessings of the small over the next few weeks. I have a feeling those blessings are going to add up quickly — as I move slower in order to see them and to feel grateful for their natural place in my life.
