thinking ahead & a giveaway

Every year, I have to fight the urge to buy cute Christmas pillows from Target.
But this year, I'm prepared.
I spent $7.75 this summer on three pillows so that I'm not tempted to spend $24.99 on one pillow right now.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw last years reindeer sweater pillows from Target while thrifting.
For $2 a pop, I got two brand new Christmas pillows.
I had almost purchased these last year, but the $24.99 price tag had deterred me.

The pillow with the big bow reminded me of a present. I picked it up on a clearance end cap at Target in late summer/early fall and thought it would be a perfect addition for Christmas.
 I never used to be a 'buy-it-now-to-save-money-later' kind of girl, but I'm slowly becoming one. I was also excited when I pulled out my winter clothes to find several pairs of new tights that I had gotten for $1 at the j.crew sale.
I always thank myself later when I think ahead.

So in keeping with the trend, I wanted to giveway a quintessential fall decor item from my shop that you could win and save for next year to be excited about.
