It's finally here...A new look and giveaway!

So if you couldn't tell by my title...I am a little EXCITED! I finally get to show you all my new look for my blog! What do you all think? I know that I am absolutely in LOVE with it! You can tell when I am excited...I start using lots of exclamation's!


I have been working with Traci from Sweet Cheeky Designs for the last couple of months, trying to get the exact idea and look that I have envisioned. Still working out a couple of things on my links at the top, but will have those up and running soon! What an incredible blog designer Traci is! Not only incredible, but lots of patience too! I am the first to admit...I am one picky, perfectionist! So grateful she has lots of patience and she showed me it was just as important to her to make sure I was happy with everything. I am sure she is just a little relieved to have it done and be everything that I wanted! lol.If you are looking for a new look or makeover, she definitely is the one you want! I feel so blessed to have had her work on my blog and have a new friendship as well! Thank you Traci! I love it!

Don't you all just love that about blogging? Not only is a blog a great way to share your inner thoughts and creative ideas with whoever is interested, but along the way you get to meet some wonderful people and have friendships all over the world! Truly amazing!

Speaking of amazing...it is also finally time to reveal my GIVEAWAY!! I wanted to have my first Giveaway to celebrate my new look! I am feeling generous and not only wanted to give one, but two Whimsy items away! I hope you all are going to love the Signature Whimsy bag~The Birdie Bag and the second item a very cute, yummy cupcake pincushion! I have worked very hard to make sure not a detail was forgotten and that you all would love both of these as much as I do!

So....
not to keep you in suspense any longer...
are you ready?
Really ready...
o.k...

here it is....

A bag for any occasion! Shopping, girls luncheon, library,
 Church, Diaper Bag or just to be pretty in your home!


Hand stitching, cherry blossoms and dimension
make this unique bag Whimsy by Victoria!


Pinch pleats closed by magnetic closures, or opens for more room.
Dimensions are 14 1/2" Hx5"Dx 17"W the strap is 2"W x22"L


I even made a whimsy key fob! Pockets are made for cell phone (perfect for an Iphone), key's, 2 pen/pencil pockets and 2 bigger pockets on the other side for anything you need holding!

Notice the sweet cherry blossoms on the inside too...


Doesn't this look good enough to eat?!

White butter cream frosting, sweet cherry on top, pretty sprinkles, chocolate cupcake and a cute liner and ribbon! Yummy...even smells like Butter cream too! So pretty in your sewing room or just to add whimsy to any room!

So was it worth the wait? What do you think? I have envisioned this in my head for quite some time now and finally see it come to reality has been such a great feeling! I wanted to bring dimension, natural fabrics and textures (linen and canvas), "Whimsy' of course, beautiful colors and a fun, stylish and durable bag that could be used for so many purposes! This bag will be sold in my Etsy shop by special order and will be limited. Whoever is one of the lucky winners will have the only one I have made...make sure to enter!! The very cute,yummy cupcake pincushion will be sold in my boutique as well and will come in 2 colors, either white or pink.
So here are the details on entering:



1. First because I love to hear from all of you, please leave me a comment on this post! That should be pretty easy, right? I love to hear your thoughts!! That enters you once!

2. Become a follower on my blog here, or if you already are, along with your comment~that makes 2 entries! It makes me happy that you want to follow along on this journey and see what I can share next with you all! Make sure if you follow anonymous and you want to win, after your comment leave a name so I know it is you!

3. If you do both things above and you have a blog, grab my new blog button! Not only is it cute, That means you really do like me...makes my heart warm! That gives you 3 good chances of winning!

4. The last would be to do all 3 and share my giveaway in a post! Wow, thank you! Sharing is great! The more entries the better!

The first name drawn Wins the Birdie bag and the second name will Win the pincushion. I will leave my giveaway open for a week, so starting today May 27Th to June 3rd I will accept entries! Sorry, this Giveaway is for U.S. residents only. Please make sure to give me your info. so I know how to get in contact with you! If you don't have a blog and you comment under anonymous make sure to leave a name on your remark! Thank you all for being so great and am looking forward to sharing so much more with everyone!

Before I go, I thought I would give you an update on one of my previous post's on Before and Afters. Remember the chairs I bought on Craigslist?


Lot's of possibility and a great shape!

Here is the After!

A little red paint and fun plaid fabric...

I think it turned out great! I am hoping to work on the
 dresser in the next couple of weeks and show that as well!

Can't wait to see who the lucky winners are in my next post!! It could be lucky you!

  14. Oh Victoria!

    I am squeeling with glee! That purse has "Laura" written ALL over it. Of course my fashion design student daughter wants the pincushion. :)

    I have a tip for you. On my blog on the lower left hand side there is a button for the 3rd annual cottage giveaway. You should link this giveaway onto the site. It would increase traffic to your blog in a big way.
    Of course given that this will lower my chances of winning the cute handbag perhaps you'll give me another entry. :)

    Love the header!

  29. Victoria,
    Two enthusiastic thumbs up on your new blog design. My favorite feature is the gently falling flowers; it adds a nice element and is so chic. Your bag and pin cushion are adorable and would look wonderful at my home, if I was lucky enough to win. Your attention to detail is suburb, you do beautiful work. The makeover chair is a big winner, the red pops and I like the wall arrangement shown in the last photo. Much success on your endeavor, I follow your blog but will sign up to follow you on Facebook. Have a lovely rest of the day. ~Cathy~

  81. I have become a follower. I would grab your button, but I just switched from blogger to wordpress, and I can't figure out how to get a button on there yet. The move was done for good reasons, but I miss blogger--it's so much easier to use. So, I didn't take your button, but it isn't because I didn't like your blog! ;-)

    I'm having a giveaway until Sunday night. Love to have you stop by and visit.

  161. i'm impressed!
    when people say something is pretty it really doesn't express the good feeling that it gives you inside.
    the bag is eye-widening pretty.
    the cupcake is feel-good adorable.
    you strike me a person who looks at something ordinary and sees possibilities.
    may you always have possibilities in your life.
