giving away a gussy.

u heard that right!

i'm giving away a little gussy love
to one lucky follower.
oh wait,
not MY gussy.
no no no.
he's not for sale, or giveaway.
he's too precious


i'm giving away some of this beauty's gussy.
isn't she adorable?
her name is maggie whitley.
and i covet her skilz.
can i just tell you a little about this gem?




gussy is a line of ruffled accessories.
each ruffle is machine sewn free-hand style,
making each ruffle unique.
about 18 months ago Maggie sat down at her kitchen table
she wanted to learn how to sew.
and here she is now,
offering zipped pouches of all sizes,
laptop bags,
netbook/iPad bags,
tote/diaper bags,
checkbook covers,
wristlet/clutches
and note cards
all with her signature ruffle.


her story makes me hide my head in shame.
i could have been gussy.
dangit.
instead i birthed a gussy.



just recently she added some new stuff to her repotoire.

headbands.

my favorite :)


ok wait, i lied.
my favorite FAVORITE thing,
is this ruffled tote.
i'm drooling, don't look.



would you believe me if i told you
that maggie loves me so much,
that she's giving one of my followers
a $30 shop credit to be spent at gussy?

it is true.

wanna win?

1st: just visit maggie's gussy shop
and then come back
and tell me what your favorite thing is.

warning: it'll be hard to decide.
