Giveaway :: Foxy & Winston

Thursday, March 7, 2013

{shop:: Facebook :: blog}


Does anyone else find themselves purging their house of all sorts of stuff come March? Something about waking up after a long winter’s nap, I suppose. This time of year, I find myself consistently abandoning those articles in my life that don’t make me happy and only keeping the ones that do. However, this type of behavior inevitably leads one to rid themselves of a necessity or two. This, my friends, is where the fun comes in. This is the time of year to purchase the replacements you always wanted. First stop for me this year? Textiles and Thank You cards.

Foxy & Winston is the kind of shop that speaks to me, friends. Whimsical, yet sophisticated, the pieces Jane Buck designs and creates are the types of articles that make the spring cleaning cut, if you know what I mean. The Owl Apron screams my name (and comes in a kids’ version so my daughter and I could match!) and yet chic and the adorable onesies make me want another baby (not really, but you know what I mean.) And these Charcoal Anemone Thank You cards sing with beauty, don’t you think? My spring awakening is shaping up pretty nicely so far.


Foxy & Winston is giving away one Artichoke Apron to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Thursday, March 14th.
Please visit Foxy & Winston and tell us: When was the last time you paid it forward?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, March 18th, to see if you’ve won!

    Last time I paid it forward, I bought Starbucks for the person behind me in line. I hope they continued and payed it forward for someone else.

    My dad recently passed away unexpedtedly and I was floored by the outpouring of support that I received. I’m trying to pay those kindnesses forward by reaching out to anyone who might need an extra kind word.

    My favorite ‘pay forward’ is at the check out line at the market when I let the person behind me with just 1 or 2 items go ahead of me.  They are always so appreciative and thankful.  I always say “you’re very welcome but please don’t forget to do the same for someone else”

    I’m new in my town and was welcomed with open arms and dinner invites. It was a huge blessing to me and my family. To pay forward that kindness that I received I wanted to put the love back out into the community so I bought grocery store gift cards and gave them to a man who I knew needed some help.

    This morning the UPS guy just threw a big box at the base of the stairs in the condo complex where I live. I carried it up 3 flights of stairs for my neighbor so it was less likely to be stolen. My 2 year old helped me. 🙂

    Donating “travel” food to the community pantry for the traveling & homeless that pass through our town.  It’s nice to try to be able to supply healthy, convenient, easy, food to those that need it–especially when I look at my own family and am so thankful for how healthy and strong all the boys and men in my household are! We’ve been blessed are our whole life together by the grace of God and well-meant actions of others supplying our needs when times were tough.

    I know this is small, but on Monday, my husband left for AirForce training for 5 months and my friend watched my two rambunctious boys for a couple of hours so we could have one last date together before weeks of radio silence.Tonight it was my brother’s 5 year wedding anniversary so I watched their little baby for them so they could go out to a nice, kid-free (romantic) dinner. It was the first time they have left her since she was born 18 months ago. It was a crazy household with 3 kiddos under 3 running around like mad-dogs, but I know how important those moments alone can be.

    I love the colors on that dress!

    I try to give my daughter alone time when I can. she has a very busy toddler that doesn’t sleep much. Once in a while I take him overnight so that she can actually sleep through the night and have a quiet breakfast with her husband. I’m totally a wreck after, but that little boy is so sweet and funny it’s worth it!

    I spent many cozy winter evenings in my warm armchair knitting hats, sweaters and scarves for the homeless shelter one town over. I tried to push as much warmth and good karma as possible into every stitch, hoping that some of the good things that I take for granted (safety, food, a home, health, love) would magically make it into the lives of the homeless people whose heads and bodies were warmed by my knitted goods.

    I’m not a mom yet and this weekend I’m watching my friend’s 5 and 3 year-olds all weekend. She’s a single mom and the most amazing woman I know, and she deserves a break! I know I’ll be tired after the weekend is over but it’ll be nothing compared to all that she does every day.

    The last time I paid it forward was when I was driving through a toll booth.  I paid for the person behind me.  I hope they did the same.

    Today New England had a big snow storm…My neighbor came out and helped me shovel my driveway. Later in the afternoon when the snow finally stopped, I went out and helped another neighbor shovel out….

    A few weeks ago I was on a walk through my neighborhood on an extraordinarily windy day and it just so happened to be trash day.  I noticed a big bag if garbage in the middle of someone’s yard that had undoubtedly blown out of their
    garbage can.  So, I picked the bag up and put it back in their garbage can so the trash truck could pick it up later that day.

    My friend and I were chatting about personal growth over tea one day. I had mentioned that I have been keeping a daily gratitude journal and that it has really helped me stay positive and to see the little joys in life more clearly. She loved the idea so as soon as I got home I sent her a 365 day journal of her very own.

    Every week I look forward to Tuesdays with my son’s kindergarten class. About half of the kids are bussed to the school and speak English as a second language. I was blessed to receive a good education (thanks to my parents) and love helping these children learn.

    it seems silly, but simply letting someone have your seat on the subway can go a long way. i saw a mom struggling with a ton of bags and the cutest little girl. i gave the girl my seat and the mom was so appreciative. i only had one more stop and didn’t mind!

    The last time I paid it forward was a few weeks ago when I reloaded the parking meter in our busy downtown before I pulled away.

    A couple of weeks ago, we left a giant tip for our waitress at dinner…that’s a really fun thing to do that feels sneaky, since they never realize till after we’ve left!

    I few months ago it was Random Acts of Kindness Week. I was out for lunch with a pal, and there was an old man eating his lunch. He just looked so happy. I sneaked off to pay for his lunch & hoped he would do the same for someone. The server loved the idea and mentioned she would do it for someone later that week as well.
