Okay, this post is super hard for me to write because I am a Respecter of the Turkey. I won’t purchase Christmas gifts until after the bird has been smoked, fried, or roasted and then sliced, plated and consumed. I must stuff myself on sweet potato souffle and stuffing and mashed potatoes. And apple crisp. With vanilla ice cream.
(And we wonder why I’m constantly calling myself a McFatty, right? BECAUSE FOOD IS DELICIOUS.)
Anyway, I feel we need to give Mr. Turkey a moment of silence before I delve right on in to the wonderfulness that is this post.
Ready? Moment of silence begins now. (……………………………….)
Alright, now that we’ve gotten that all taken care of and out of the way, allow me to introduce you to Willow House Designs and my good friend (seriously, she’s a good friend) Lauren.

Everyone say “Hi, Lauren!”
Lauren and I met in college. We were both English teachers in training. After we graduated, we both got jobs and got married and then we both got pregnant. Her James is just a couple months younger than Joshua. Lauren, after having James, decided to be a stay-at-home mom. And then, in a way to bring in a few extra dollars while still staying home with her little guy, she started selling Willow House Designs.
In non-holiday decor, I love the entire Gramercy Collection of Willow House items. This is spot-on with the decor items in my kitchen. I am also needing about half the items in the Estate Collection for the time when I maybe decide to finally get around to organizing my office and/or finally get a seat in my mud room. There are also quite a few items in their Outlet that I wouldn’t mind having in my house, too.
But, what I really want to show you is the holiday pieces that are so, so cute (and on sale, too!!)
As for what I’m thinking I MUST have?
This Herald Angel for my mantel or bookshelf. So I don’t look like a Christmas heathen because I still haven’t managed to buy a Nativity scene.
And this? This card holder? Is definitely coming to my house. I wanted one of these last year. Know what I ended up doing instead? Taping my Christmas cards to my bookshelves in the living room. (How not southern charming of me. Scarlett would be embarrassed.)
So, think you’re ready to do some holiday shopping? Here’s what you need to know.
Willow House always has weekly specials and right now, when you spend $40 or more, you can pick any regular priced item of $40 or less and get it for half-price.
When you make a purchase, be sure to use “Trunk Show” as the hostess name at checkout. (Trunk as in first name, Show as in last name.)
I AM NOT GETTING ANY BENEFITS FROM THIS TRUNK SHOW. None. Nada. Just so you know. Lauren and I just want to be able to see where the sales are coming from, and this is one way we can do that without me giving away my first name, last name, blood type, and urine sample.
BUT WAIT!!! THERE’S MORE.
I mean, you didn’t think Lauren and I would do this without a giveaway, did you? Of COURSE not.
So, want to win these pretty ornaments for your tree?
This is the way to stay “in the know.”
The giveaway will be open until Monday, November 22nd @ 10:00 p.m. EST.
The winner will be announced on Tuesday morning and will have 48 hours to claim his/her prize.
(Sorry, friends across the northern and southern borders. This giveaway is open to residents of the US only.)
