Give Away on Instagram! And see what I bought on Friday!

I'm having a GIVE AWAY on Instagram!

Why?  Because on Friday, March 21, 2014, Pottery Barn flattered me by featuring my porch on their Instagram here! I just happen to be on the way home from doing some shopping at Pottery Barn when they posted it.  The fact is, I LOVE to give gifts and this gave me a great excuse to give away a couple of the awesome things I brought home! Why? Because WHY NOT!? ;)

 What am I giving away?

Aaaaand this is what else I bought on Friday...

I picked up this cute Ceramic Mason Jar Vase from World Market for $5.99, also seen here.  In the store you can buy them each rather than in a set. 

The Ranunculus came from PCC in Issaquah, aren't they pretty!?

I also picked up this metal flower bucket from Crate&Barrel for $9.99.

The flowers are from Michaels, they were having a spring flower sale.

THESE cutie patootie spoons are from Anthropologie!  They're an Anthro exclusive by Ruan Hoffmann, stoneware and dishwasher safe.  Find out more here.

I also picked up these pinch bowls while at Anthropologie.  Actually, these little bowls were why I went in.  I had a few already and love them so I bought a few more.  You can find them here.  Online they sell them as a set but in store they sell them separately for $2.50 each.

I picked up another milky mercury glass candle cup from Pottery Barn to add the the collection.

Also while at Pottery Barn, I picked up the initial pillow I had been admiring but they didn't have in stock last time.  When I went on Friday, they had a huge stack of these on sale and happened to have the W.  Rarely do I ever find my W initial in a sale pile!

These Pottery Barn Sea Urchin Lanterns were my splurge.  They are SO pretty!  I love the texture on them and you can find them here.  I used my email promo discount on my total PB purchase which helped.

The inside feels rough so I thought I'd show you what it looks like.

A scene you probably already seen if you follow me on Instagram... 

There's the driftwood garland I made yesterday hanging on the right.
