Fall Home Tour

Posted by on Sep 27, 2013 in fall, fall home tour | 41 comments

Do you remember a time that you won something so cool?

I remember…I was 6 years old and at an Easter Egg Hunt.

The child who found the golden egg won a plastic chicken filled with candy.

I still remember seeing that plastic chicken and thinking about how beautiful it would look sitting on my white dresser in my pink gingham bedroom.

I knew someone would have to win so, I looked and looked and looked…

…and, I found that egg!

And just like someone had to win that plastic chicken…

…someone is going to have to win this amazing piece of furniture from Somerset Bay!

And I have a feeling it will look a little better in your house than the plastic chicken looked in my room. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you picture it already?

Make sure you enter at the end of this post!
