Pocketful of Rosies - Special Giveaway

This is one giveaway that I am honored to be doing. My friend Ami---you might know her as the brains behind Homeschool Share, opened up a shop called Pocketful of Rosies.  Here’s what Ami has to say,

“Every penny you spend at Pocketful of Rosies will be given to my dear friend's family to help bring Abbi (their Ethiopian daughter) home. ♥ If you'd like to follow Abbi's adventure, please check out my friend's blog.”

So what is Pocketful of Rosies? I’m so glad you asked!


Can you see the adorable pink flower bobby pin in my daughter’s hair? My daughters were so excited when our package of girly hair clips, earrings, and alligator clips arrived. Each immediately picked an item to show off to you:

I love these bobby pins. They are so beautiful! Ami has so many pretty collections of bobby pins in her shop that it was hard to choose a favorite.


My two older daughters loved the earrings. There are dangle earrings and stud earring available in the shop. These would make nice stocking stuffers!

I took the flower alligator clips and used them to hang mini-messages on our morning board. They make me smile every time I look at them. (See, you can use them for hair or for decorating!)

Ami is only keeping the shop open until the end of August—so if you see something you like, get it while you can. :) These items aren't just for little girls! Anyone can wear them. I’d love to hear from Ami that she ran out of everything! :) Wouldn’t that be a cool way to close the shop?

Your girls look so sweet; I love that first picture. I also LOVE how you used the flower clip for something other than hair. Smart and CUTE! :)

What a special cause this is. These barrettes and clips are just adorable. It was hard to pick out a favorite. I loved the barrettes but I wasn't sure if they'd work for my daughter's hair. So, I think I'd chose Little Arabella Miller bobby pin set. Thank you for this chance to win and for sharing about this blog.

I love the Flowers in Her Hair set, and I have been thinking that I need some pretty bobby pins to go along with my pretty flexiclips! (Some how I always seem to have a bit of hair that escapes!)

I will definitely order from her to help her with her cause, and with 7 heads of girls hair around here I am sure we can put some clips or barrette to good use! ; )

Thank you for offering this give away and for sharing about this 'shop' and it's purpose!

They are all so pretty! I think I like the Princess on the Glass Hill alligator clips. They would go with just about everything my little girls wears, and they would make a great birthday present. ;)

Everything is lovely and what a wonderful reason to buy something. My favorite is the Jellia Jubie earrings. We love roses because Rose is my daughter's middle name.
