sponsor love: interview and GIVEAWAY with Sarah of Vintage Woods!!

today's giveaway comes from someone who knows me super well. i mean, really well - she saw me in the good and the bad. i got the rocking privilege to be roommates with this incredible girl during my last year living it up in Chicago. she is as cute and as real as she sounds in her interview - and her talent for finding vintage goodies is off the charts. go and see for yourself. you won't be disappointed.

meet sarah.

tell us about Vintage Woods.
I have always enjoyed vintage treasures, my home is decorated with vintage flair. I easily fall in love with things that are odd, old and the unique. Our shop features vintage items that my husband and I have found at antique shops and second hand shops. We love treasure hunting - "for your buying pleasure" is what we always say. It gives us an opportunity to do what we love without totally cluttering up our small 2 bedroom apartment. I hope you drop by our shop and find a quirky old thing you just can't live without!

3 random facts about YOU.
1. I love dinosaurs and have been fascinated with them since the age of four. I even have a fossil collection. How's that for nerdy? ;)

2. Next to "treasure hunting," my husband Josh and i love scuba diving.
We are currently receiving our Advanced Water Certification and are craving a Caribbean Vacation soon!

3. I am absolutely obsessed with Milk Way Dark Chocolate Bars! If you like dark chocolate, try one - you will be hooked!


i am a sucker for vintage books and bottles. 
these are some of my favorites items in Sarah's shop
and what i love about Sarah's shop is how crisp the photos are and how organized it is,
plus you'll find nearly everything to decorate your home. 

be sure to browse the shelves yourself, especially since Sarah is giving away...
