A Pleated Poppy winner!

Someone got really lucky today.


Hmmm... how about a little hint?

The winner claims to like the 'aprons.'

I wonder which one was her fav?

 Was it 'Apples and Raspberries?'

I'd bet it was 'the Green Apple.'

 Well, it could have been the "Sour Apple..."

Nahhh. Who could resist an apron called 'Chocolate and Pink Marshmallow?'

All only $38.

Are you as hungry as I am?!?

Gorgeous aprons Lindsey!
Well, one lucky gal gets to go shopping with a red hot $30 credit in her hand.

Well Jasey, it looks as if one of those three shots brought you to a win! Congrats!!
And thanks for following both of us!

Crazy Daisy Button

Hey, did you know Lindsey hosts a What I Wore Wednesday link party on her blog?

How fun is this?!? Isn't she cute?!? Go on and check out the party! It's still on.


I can't IMAGINE why I didn't get a special invite. *sniff*

Giveaway by The Pleated Poppy!

My friends, I am THRILLED to introduce you to Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy! And boy does this gal love to sew. Because if she didn't, we wouldn't have...

... these adorable zippered pouches ($17) avail to us.
9 other patterns to choose from too! How sweet are those funky material mixes?!?

Or how about a super cute apron? ($38) This one's called Sour Apple. 
Oooo I love the vertical lines on the fresh green background!

Lindsey does more than sew though. She also crafts. Are ya ready?

You could doll up your do with these adorable chubby button hair clips! ($18) I'd get'tem just for that chubby button name! But honestly, how fun are these little pops of colour?

Lindsey makes other headgear too. This posy headband ($17) is meant to be worn slightly askew on an adorable little bumpkin baby head or to keep a little girl's long hair out of her eyes. And there's only about 20 patterns to choose from.

I've only shown you such a small sampling. Lindsey's sweet online store is LOADED with all kinds of sewing and crafting specialties that all wear the pleated poppy flair!

Review on The Pleated Poppy

You will soon find that those advertising on Funky Junk are in for abit of a different experience.

I love to tap in to who's behind the sponsor buttons and share the person responsible for dedicating her time and efforts to her passion. And I was pleasantly surprised when I got to further investigate...



Lindsey, from The Pleated Poppy!

The first thing that caught me was Lindsey's gorgeous branding for her company. As a graphic designer myself, I appreciate beautiful artwork and I think it only enhances what you are portraying. Good professional branding means you mean business. And that's good for business!

Who is she?

In her own words,

"hi ! i'm lindsey cheney. i am married to an incredibly supportive husband and am mom to 3 littles, 6 and under. my days are full of sewing, home schooling, crafting, snuggling, avoiding the laundry, sneaking bites of chocolate, and wondering "is it naptime yet?".

Ok, she's not only cute and has one pretty lookin' company, but she also has a spunky humourous nature that I'd bet everyone naturally gravitates to. I like this girl already. :) And being a mom and a wife and needing naps, I also vote she's just a normal fun lovin' girl that loves to create. We can ALL relate to that. :)

What does she do?
 Once you snoop around Lindsey's blog, you'll see she does quite a few things. Among them...

She sews.

And oh my word does she sew well! One thing I've really noticed is her love of mixing bright patterns. Her creations leave you feeling like the sun is shining! Her sewing photos are crisp and easy to love. She sews pretty lady stuff, to baby stuff, to kidlet stuff, and everything in between.

 She crafts.

She's got some really creative unique ideas and shows you what to do every step of the way. Excellent tutorials!

She decorates.  

And I really love her style. It's elegant, a little coastal, with a big dash of warm and inviting! Isn't this bathroom amazing?!?

 And lastly, Lindsey sells.  

She sells what she's passionate about and what she's good at. So you know her product is going to be top notch. Her store is LOADED with unique and wonderful ideas for yourself and for gifts suitable for all age groups. So you will never be stumped for an idea on what to buy a difficult-to-buy-for kinda person.

Thanks Lindsey, for helping support FJI, and sharing your wonderful creativity with all of us!
