My Christmas Challenge and a Wonderful Giveaway from The Charmed Life

Thanks to all who entered The Charmed Life Giveaway!  Chosen by a random number generator, the winner is Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads.


Thanks again to all who entered and to The Charmed Life for a great giveaway!  If you didn’t win this time, don’t be discouraged.  There will be a fun giveaway coming up for Christmas soon.


Happy Friday!  Have any special plans for the weekend?

I’m so amazed at how quickly November is passing by.  It dawned on me last night, Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away!  Wow!

My Christmas Challenge to Myself:
Have you started your Christmas shopping?  I’ve gotten a little done but not near enough.  I decided this morning, my goal this year is to have all my Christmas gifts purchased AND wrapped by Thanksgiving so I can relax and enjoy the holiday season without feeling rushed.  Think I can do it?    Ask me in two weeks if I’m done…nothing like a little declaration here on the blog to get me motivated. :)

Last night I was seriously drooling over this beautiful scene I found while visiting The Charmed Life.  It features a line of dishware by Mandy Bagwell called, Simply Christmas.  Just looking at this picture puts me in the Christmas spirit and makes me want to throw a big Christmas party.  I get so excited thinking about Christmas and making plans this time of year.  Christmastime is such a joyous time for gathering with family and friends to celebrate the season.



$75 Shopping Spree Giveaway from The Charmed Life
I have a little something today that’s going to make someone’s Christmas holiday a little Ho, Ho Merrier for sure…a wonderful Giveaway Shopping Spree from The Charmed Life.  A lot of things are on sale right now so it’s the perfect time for a Giveaway!

Additional Discount for BNOTP Readers
In addition to the sale that’s going on, purchases made today and Saturday get an additional 15% off with the code BNOTP15 at checkout!  (Dishware shown below can be found HERE.)

The Charmed Life carries a full line of the M. Bagwell, Simply Christmas pattern.  I noticed it’s even on sale!   This pattern frequently sells out this time of year so if you’re thinking of buying it, don’t wait too long.  I read the sweetest story about how Mandy Bagwell herself helped get some pieces to a customer who was frantic because she was having a big party and didn’t have enough of the Simply Christmas pattern for the party.  You can read the story HERE.  I so sympathized with that story…totally been there!


I also loved the “Happy Together” dishware from M. Bagwell.  Don’t you know you would just love Mandy Bagwell if you met her.  If she can produce dishware this charming and fun, she has to be a fun person to be around.

M. Bagwell:  Happy Together


In addition to the fun M. Bagwell dishware, The Charmed Life also carries pieces by Jon Margeaux.  Loved this glassware!   It would go perfectly with the Mardi Gras dishware I saw while visiting The Charmed Life.

Jon Margeaux Glassware


I thought these napkin rings were so cute!  Spode makes a line of plates in their Woodland collection that’s for the fisherman and these napkin rings would be perfect with it.  These would also be great to keep on hand for entertaining at a Lake home.

Crosby & Taylor Tin Woodsman Pewter Fish Napkin Rings



Love the Crosby & Taylor Pewter pieces.  You may recognize their measuring spoons since they have made appearances in some pretty famous kitchens, including Paula Deens.

Crosby & Taylor/Tin Woodsman Petwter Dragonfly Measuring Spoon:


I so wish I had a bigger picture to share of this wonderful dishware by J. Willfred.  I totally fell for the red and white toile pictured on the left and the Green Leaf Majolica right below it.   Either of these pattern would set the most stunning table for Thanksgiving!  Love!

This is just such a tiny sampling of all the wonderful things you’ll find in stock at The Charmed Life.  While you’re there, click on the category heading, RECIPES and check out all the wonderful recipes Kristie has posted.  I had fun checking out the desserts and found recipes for Cranberry Apple Cookies, Autumn Cheesecake, Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake, Sweet Potato Pie, Mississippi Mud Cake and Derby Pie.  Yum!.

    After looking at The Charmed Life’s site I am having a very hard time trying to decide what I would use the gift card for. I am sure I would be buying more dishes. I have this illness only way to help alleviate the symptoms is to buy a few new dishes.

  45. Charmed Life, aptly named site, as everything there is “wantable”!
    How to pick just one…I love to use seasonal plates as spoonholders…I really cook, so I need a larger s.holder than the cute ones designed for one utensil, and I ususally use a plate or small platter to work with the season. So the darling smaller owl platter is of course a choice, I’m thinking who do I know that needs one of those! The white w black dot salad plates are darling and would be so fun. Wish the description on the mugs included the size/how much they hold, regardless, those red dot Christmas mugs are great! I could go on… thanks for the fun!

  46. I also subscribed to their site for further updates and thank you!!!

  47. I like the Margeaux salad bowl for my Mardi Gras party!

  48. Goodness Gracious! Everything is so pretty. I think I’d like one of the pewter measuring spoon sets. How neat would that be to display in the kitchen.

    every item is delightful but at my stage in life these would be the most useful and also they are on sale making them fit within the giveaway price as this lady has what I call ‘a dry budget’ for the moment.
    Joyfully and thankful for the giveaway.

  201. Ooh – love the idea of being DONE by Thanksgiving and letting the season unfold for you to enjoy. The dishes are SO CUTE…I would pick the Christmas dishes….Going to Louisville to visit friends at Christmas so I love seeing a KY company, too – and may have to stop in !

  202. I just used your instructions for making a grab-it button and it worked perfectly!!! Thanks so much. Linda

  203. I would love the black and white cake plate.

  204. Alyce Booth says:

  205. I would apply the gift certificate to a Skyros cake stand. I love cake stands and can’t seem to get enough and there are some beautiful ones at The Charmed Life.

  206. I liked The Charmed Life on facebook.

  207. I would chose one of the many beautiful cake plates from The Charmed Life. Maybe Skyros in white or M. Bagwell mix n match.

  214. Staci Torgerson says:

    No question as to what I would chose from The Charmed Life Online as I’ve been drooling over this for almost a year now and had no idea they carried this line. The Skyros entire Isabella line in ice blue and linen mix. The dinnerware, the bakeware and the polished nickel holders PLUS a Chubbco Monogrammed cutting board in maple with handles. Have only seen this line in 2 of my local retailers and not the vast assortment as this site carries!

    And if I were to win I really like all of the J. Willfred Brown Bird Toile and Bunny Toile. It’s Super Yummy. Thank you for such a fun giveaway!

  272. Tragically, the internet ate my comment. Here is the brief version, from memory: I love that red toile you pictured – I also really like the Winterberry, also from the J. Willfred. And there’s so many pretty things in the Skyros…I think my favorites would be the large rectangular Isabella baker (in the ice blue – it’s JUST SO PRETTY), and the oval Isabella platter. But then, the Legado is so pretty too…

    I am beyond impressed by your Christmas-shopping goals. I usually require myself to have started purchasing by Thanksgiving (and I think of myself as an earlybird in these matters). This year I am pretty far ahead of that. But you are still way ahead of me!

  273. My problem is I like it ALL! If forced to choose, I would pick the white with black cake plate in the first photo on your page here.
