happy weekend + a new site + a giveaway!

Good morning, good morning and welcome to the new Chevrons & Stripes friends!  Whaddya think?!?!  I’m absolutely smitten with the re-design and want to give a huge shout out to Hanna Seabrook of Gadabout for making it everything I’ve always wanted – easy to navigate, modern, and cleanly designed with a few unique touches.

I liken changing up my site to sprucing up a home (after all this is my virtual home), so in the spirit of sprucing, I got you guys a little gift. One that’s sure to breathe new life into any space!

I’ve loved these adorable topiaries from the new Design Darling boutique since the day they arrived in Mackenzie’s shop.  Not only are they the perfect addition to any home, but they’re super low maintenance, requiring just one spritz of water per month.  I think that means even I can’t kill these… Until I move and purchase one of these lovelies for myself, I’m so excited that one of you lucky readers will be able to enjoy one in your own home! Below are a few different ways people have styled their topiaries, aren’t they gorgeous?

Scroll down to find out how to enter the giveaway!

    Hi! I’ve actually been eyeing the topiaries on Design Darling for quite some time! I’m in the process of re-doing my bedroom and I think it would look perfect on my desk or even my bureau near the window. I hope that I can make it a reality :) (I’ve also followed you on both Facebook and Twitter).

    I just graduated from college and moved to Atlanta to start a new job in the city. I moved into a quaint home in Buckhead that has so much charm and character. This topiary has been on my “lust” list since we moved in! We have an old antique fireplace that we don’t plan on using for the next several months. My roommate and I decided to go with an eclectic themed entry way space and have several stacks of coffee table, fashion, and eye catching books stacked inside the fireplace and on top of the mantle. Along with books we have several Kate Spade vintage advertisements and quirky/colorful quotes framed on the wall above the fireplace. This topiary would be the perfect-and not to mention chic-edition to our beautiful mantle piece! (I have also followed and liked you on Twitter and FB)

  • Traci S.

    I would love to put this gorgeous boxwood topiary on my front porch or in my living room!
