Etsy Review and Giveaway: Snowman Votive Candle Holder *Closed*


If you are a regular Life With Two Boys reader then you know how much I love etsy. There's just something special about an item that was made because someone has a passion for making them, not just because they have a passion for making money.

The etsy shop I'm going to tell you about today is Cape 2830. Owner, Virginia loves to paint, and she especially loves painting snowmen. I happen to have a bit of an obsession with snowmen so when I discovered her shop I fell in love with so many items. I was super excited when she agreed to send me one of her snowmen votive candle holders to review.

This snowman votive holder is so cute and looks amazing sitting in the big window in my living room. It is made with a glass jar that is hand painted and a votive holder that sits on top. The votive holder is glittery and looks like glistening snow on the snowmans head. What really pulls the whole thing together is the adorable snowman face that is hand painted on the jar.

Along with the snowmen votive holders you'll find tons of other really cute snowman items in Virginia's shop including hand painted gourds, wall hangings, decorative plates, gift boxes, and even hand knit snowmen. Not as obsessed with snowmen as I am? No worries, Virginia also has a passion for knitting so you'll find hand knit women's scarves and even doll clothes.

I would definitely recommend checking out Virginia's etsy shop, Cape 2830, to see all of the amazing handmade items she has to offer!

**Win It**
One lucky reader will win a Snowman Votive Holder similar to the one I received to review (actual giveaway item shown below).

My favorite item was the Knitted Chenille and Fun Fur Scarf from Cape2830! I absolutely adore scarfs and have tons in multiple different colors and styles to match anything I am wearing!

My favorite Holiday theme has always been penguins! They are just so darn adorable and every year I add a new penguin themed item to my collection!

Hand Painted Wooden Herb or Garden Box would be great on my back porch.

I tend to stay away from holiday themes so I don't have to take them down at any particular time. For winter I like the snowflake theme - light sparkly blues and silvers.

I'm more of a vintage Christmas person although I don't like the old huge Christmas lights. Anything that looks old or vintage and is Christmas themed pretty much works for me. I would have to say that my main decoration is snowflakes though.

Michelle Hagewood said...

I love all the holiday items really. If I had to pick a favorite of the Christmas themed stuff it would be the Christmas Snowman Wall Plaque. I like a ton of the Halloween stuff too.
