So Halloween has passed, it’s officially cold here in North Carolina, and all the stores are stocked with holiday gear. I’m ready for Christmas, but I’m holding back on decorating until the day after Thanksgiving. But on Nov. 24, I AM READY! Who’s with me? 🙂
But, no harm in planning my decor with a little Christmas music in the background, right? Each year I buy a few new ornaments from my very talented friend and pottery guru, Lauren Sumner of Lauren Sumner Pottery. You must check her out. She makes the most amazing personalized ceramic Christmas ornaments (and other cool stuff like cat bowls). She made ornaments for Cece and Emory this year, and I’m in love. Emory’s narwhal ornament has gold luster. Does it get any better? They’re the cutest way to add a personalized, handmade touch to your Christmas tree. And, obviously they’re great for gifts. Lauren’s state ornaments are great for a non-kid related presents too, and she can do all 50 states and other countries as well.
Now for the best part. I am giving away one of these beautiful handmade ornaments to one of you! To enter, simply comment below with your favorite ornament from the pictures above (or check out Lauren’s site for additional options), and you’re all set. For an additional entry, visit my Instagram account @jamiemartinmiller. The contest will close on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17 @ MIDNIGHT EST. I will contact the winner on the following Saturday morning.
So good luck and I thoroughly appreciate you reading my blog!
**Note: Lauren’s ornaments take two weeks to make. If you plan on ordering, hop to it because she won’t be offering them after the first week in December! She’s also offering a coupon code ornament15 to save 15% off all ornaments. Expires Dec. 7!
