A 500th Post Giveaway!!

I’m coming up on my 500th post for my blog this week! I can’t believe I’ve stuck with this blog writing thing for over three years now!!! It’s been so wonderful to have a place to document the lovely days, the struggles and the wonder in the every day. I started out in this space to document things that made me happy, things that inspired me and projects I was working on. It’s evolved into the story of my family and the story of me as a wife, mother and woman. Writing this blog every week has even brought me to meet many incredible people online and (even in person). I have become a part of an amazing community of bloggers around the world and I am so glad I put myself out there three years ago to create SummerPlaysHouse. So in celebration, I have put together a few giveaways this week and in the next coming weeks, from myself and a few people close to me. 

This first giveaway is from a wonderful Etsy store called Marci’sGarden. Marci (who just happens to be one of my favorite people and my cousin) makes the most lovely of things for babies and adults alike. Fabric balls for children, crocheted goods, reusable bags for groceries (We have 5 of hers and use them daily!), reusable sandwich bags and so much more… You can check out her store here. 


For my first ever giveaway, she has generously donated a set of fabric balls and a set of crocheted wash clothes.

These fabric balls come in all different colors and are three different sizes. They are soft and squishy and perfect for little hands to hold, grasp and throw. Ellie has a set of them and she brings them out daily. They make incredibly lovely shower gifts or birthday gifts for a little one.

With the fabric balls, we’ll also be giving away a set of 3, beautifully hand crocheted

wash cloths. Ellie has a set of these as well and we use them every night during bath time. The shape makes them so much fun to wash with and the yarn is super snuggly and soft against her skin. They are so sweet and lovely!

So please go check out Marci’s wonderful store with all of her handmade goodness!!! (She’s having a sale in her store as we speak)!
And if you would like to win one of these lovely sets of fabric balls and wash cloths, all you have to do is leave me a comment!!! I will be picking names out of  a hat, old school, and let you know who the winner is, next week! Good Luck!!  ****GIVEAWAY CLOSED**** The winner is STACIA!!

  3. Well, what can a gal say to a friend as funny, smart, inspiring and plain darn awesome as yourself, other than – “I’m so very glad our ‘paths’ have crossed and I heart you lots and lots!” You are a terrific mum and I hope that one day I’ll be able to say that to you in person 🙂 Well done on this incredible milestone!

  4. Summer you are such a great Mom and teacher!! The way you let Ellie explore and be herself is so awesome and I applaud you for that!!
