Well, it's official! After 6 months of searching for the home of my (27 year old) dreams, I'm finally in Escrow. With such a competitive buyers' market, there were times I had a hard time believing I would find a home that truly fitted most of my needs (location, price, move in ready, etc). But in the end, I finally got to see what "if it's meant to be" really feels like, and it feels gooood. I'm not out of the woods just yet, but I feel extremely hopeful that I will be a homeowner by Sept. 1st.
So what better way to celebrate than by making my first home accessory purchase! You would think that a bed, dining room table or couch would be priority, but nope, I've been eying (no pun intended) these West Elm Owl Measuring Cups for months and thought they would add some vintage charm to the counter of my very own first kitchen. But I'm too excited about these to just get one for myself. I thought I'd share the sentimental wealth and give one white set away to one lucky follower! Good luck!
What you have to do:
1. Follow this blog.
2. Share with me what your first home purchase would be or was.
3. Provide your email.
Entry will end Sunday night and I will announce the winner on Monday!
Congratulations! Praying that your escrow will be quick and smooth, and that your new home is filled with love, laughter and the joy of family and friends. Cheers!ReplyDelete

Thanks so much, Ellen!Delete
Congratulations! I am currently renting, but home ownership is definitely a dream of mine! My first home purchase was a bed mattress! It was expensive, but worth it, seeing as how we spend so much time in bed.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shannon! Yea, I'm not looking forward to the endless credit card swiping I'll be doing in the beginning, but we have to sleep right?Delete
congrats!! what a great purchase! i follow your blog and my first purchase was definitely a bedframe and mattress because i needed a place to sleep!ReplyDelete
A bed and mattress will definitely be my first furniture purchase! I'm not much of a floor sleeper. :)Delete
Congrats Christina! That is so exciting!! And what a great giveaway! I love these, they're adorable! We bought our first "home" almost two years ago and boy was it a big milestone! Now I can paint and do whatever I want to MY home--which makes all the difference in the world!ReplyDelete

Thanks Aarean! I'm excited to finally be able to make a space of my very own, too. Can't wait for home projects!Delete
Christina Marie, That's so exciting about your new house. Congrats! And I love the little owl cups, what a sweet idea to do a give away.ReplyDelete
Hmmmm.... I think my first nesting purchase was a set of deep red vintage mugs I bought at a thrift store in Texas. They were so charming and like your owls, added some spunk and life to my first place.
Ooh I like the red mug choice. I'll also be poking around some thrift store to see what accessories I can find for the home. Excited for some vintage finds!Delete
Congrats on finding a house! We are in the process of moving and man, is it stressful!ReplyDelete
My first nesting purchase was a soda stream so I could make seltzer at home :)
Thank you! I'm a bit nervous of the move and how stressful it might be. But, we'll see. I love your first home purchase. How cool, a soda stream! I definitely need one of those. :)Delete
