r house couture

Congratulations to Holly who said, "Pick Me, Pick Me!! This necklace summarizes my last year to a TEE." You are our winner!  You can pick up your necklace at the show, just introduce yourself at checkout.  See you soon!

Our giveaway today is this beautiful necklace from r house couture.  I love this necklace, and I love this saying.  Two summers ago Chad and I had the opportunity to be a 'Ma' and 'Pa' on an LDS Pioneer Trek reenactment.  It was an amazing time where we made dear friends, learned a lot about ourselves and our relationship with God, but mostly we learned that, we can do hard things.  That was our motto throughout our experience and whomever wins this necklace will have to fight it from my white knuckled grip. :)  All comments will be entered into the drawing.  The winner and next contest will be announced tomorrow.

I think their 'about us' from their Etsy site says it best, so the rest of this post will be in their words...

who is the r house couture?

the r house couture is a group of three dear friends. we were brought together through our passion for adoption.

lindsey redfern is a wife, mommy and adoption blogger at where she writes as mrs. r. a wild-spirited idea thrower-outer, mrs. r dreamed of creating a shop especially for those touched by adoption. she brought the dream to her friends kim orlandini and leisha kelsey during a late night craft get-together and it snowballed from there. lindsey is hilarious, quirky and enjoys french fries more than she should. she is an avid writer and loves to create messy art. she has a soft spot for her blog readers--the greatest group of internet friends a girl could ask for.

kim orlandini of simply me, also known as sensei on lindsey's blog, is a wife, mommy, former nail tech (aka resident silver filer) and professional photographer. she has taught photography lessons for years to students who thrive in her hands-on teaching style--including lindsey and leisha. that's why we call her sensei. her love of simplicity and her endless photography talents and knowledge give life to the r house couture. kim is the nicest person you will ever meet while still being irreverent. she loves a good cupcake and has a special gift for being able to find anything for us on the internet. anything.

leisha kelsey, also known as muse on lindsey's blog, is a wife, mommy, photographer and graphic designer. she can often be found rolling her eyes at kim and lindsey's antics. known for her missing sketch book and extensive list making, leisha keeps the r house couture on task. she is our resident perfectionist and does all of our design work in that energizer bunny-like mind of hers. being around leisha is a treat especially if you get her laughing around 1:47 am. she brings out the creative best in all of us. that's why we call her muse. leisha is classic and can always be found with makeup and jewelry on. she is a wonderful cook and a lover of diet dr. pepper.

Good Luck!
