longear designsAND…we’re also going to help one lucky winner check an item off of their gift list. We’re giving away one of these gorgeous stained trays from Long Eared Designs. We’ve showcased some of Lauren’s work on the blog before, and we asked her to create something special for the holiday season. She came up with this classic JOY tray and we are in l-o-v-e. We think it would be a home decor item that would work all winter long and could be the perfect gift for a hostess or home decor lover in your life.

To enter to win this tray use the Rafflecopter widget below. Also, be sure to leave a comment letting us know what holiday projects you plan to tackle this season. We’d love to hear what you’re up to!
