The seventh comment was left by Jodi.

Congratulations, Jodi!

Accessories.  The part of my wardrobe that I could not go without.

A bold necklace.  A sassy scarf.  A great pair of bold earrings.  A stylish belt.

And, now….

The Pleated Poppy!

I first heard of these brilliant little accessories at Blissdom 2010.   Everyone had one on, and I was mesmerized by them.

“What is that you’re wearing?” I asked a friend.

“It’s a Pleated Poppy Posy!  Oh. Em. Gee.  You have to find the woman who makes them.  She’s giving them out with her business cards.  Her name is Lindsey Cheney,” she replied.

“For REAL?” I said, all flabbergasted.

“Yes, for real,” she claimed.

I did finally find her and my friend was right, she had Pleated Poppy posies attached to her business card.

This cute-as-a-button-woman-whom-I-really-wanted-to-fold-up-and-put-in-my-pocket-to-take-home-with-me was a genius; giving away her poppies with her business card was,  I don’t care who you are, GENIUS!

I wore the heck out of that one poppy.  I’d wear it on tops, on a necklace chain (yes, a necklace chain), on a headband, and even affixed it on my purse.   And then Olivia stole it from me.

Something about, Mama, Mama, I love it, please can I just keep it in my room, blah, blah, blah…

I’ve yet to see it return to my dresser.

Luckily for me cute-as-a-button-Lindsey-whom-I-really-really-really-wanted-to-fold-up-and-put-in-my-pocket-to-take-home-with-me-when-I-met-her-in-Nashville contacted me recently to see if I’d be interested in giving away some poppies to my readers!

It didn’t take me but 4.7 seconds to respond to her email.

Would I ever?


To win your very own set of posies just visit Lindsey’s shop and tell me which are your favorite.

That’s it.  Super simple.   I’ll announce the winner on Friday.  Good luck!

*Disclosure:  The Pleated Poppy posies photographed in this post were sent to me, free of charge, to photograph, enjoy, love, and not let Olivia steal from me!
