In Lieu of Fridays Finest

After finally arriving back from Florida yesterday afternoon, I had no time to do much but laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, preparing dinner and getting my son ready for school. Therefore I was unable to do my Fridays Finest, but check back next week as I will be highlighting Philly's Craigslist.

So in lieu of the usual, I wanted to share a giveaway on my friends blog and an article about Fresh Quince from a local DC website and blog geared to mothers.

Evie from Post-College Working Girl has reached the 100+ followers mark and has decided it's time for a giveaway. So pop on over to her blog to win these gorgeous vintage fan earrings...

Also, I wanted to share a recent article about Fresh Quince that was featured in DC DC Metro Mommy is a perfect source for those living in the DC Metropolitan area. It's a one stop information site for not only mothers, but all women. Here are a few of the categories you can peruse...

          Beauty                        Books, Classes & Arts        Home Services & Decor

In each category you will find a list of the best places to go for services, classes, boutiques, etc. It's fabulous, enlightening and I am so ecstatic that they have asked me to be a Contributing Editor. Below is a copy of the article on DC MetroMommy...

In this month’s “Mission: Design” readers are in for a wonderful treat! I am elated to introduce to you to a fabulous new style blogger Danielle from Fresh Quince. This Arlington based eco-friendly design diva isn’t your everyday style blogger. Fresh Quince showcases Danielle’s innovative take on vintage décor and classic fashion finds.
This unabashed Craigslist devotee has an uncanny ability to ferret out diamonds in the rough and share furniture potential and possibilities with readers. So dedicated is Danielle, that she features a lengthy list of prospective treasures every Friday in her “Friday’s Finest” series.

If you want style but suffer from a limited budget, Danielle is your answer! Chandeliers, tired bamboo tables, old credenzas, tattered English rolled arm chairs, nothing is off limits.

Danielle has a fabulous answer to bring most any strong boned piece of furniture back to life with style, color, fabric and a bit of eco-conscious glam. After all, Danielle’s motto is “One can be glamorous and ‘green’ at the same time.”
