Five on Friday {13th Colony Clay} & Giveaway


A friend of mine from Atlanta and fellow Florida Gator contacted me a couple of months ago about doing a giveaway on the blog and told me I would be receiving a vase from her in the mail shortly.   At the time, I really didn't know many details as to what she would be sending me; but I gladly obliged.  Her husband had a family company and they were working on a website re-vamp, so that's why I couldn't look up the details myself via the web.   

Well, fast-forward to a week ago and I received the most beautiful monogrammed vase in the mail.  I was completely blown away.  It arrived just in time for me to utilize for our family Easter lunch that I was hosting.  

Is it gorgeous or what??




The company is called 13th Colony Clay.  It is a family owned and operated ceramic company out of Atlanta, GA.  These hand-crafted ceramics that make the perfect gift are made entirely in the USA.  Let's be honest...that's hard to find these days.  It's amazing to read about their story and how the ceramic business has been in their family for decades.  

I wanted to pick out some of my very favorite items they offer for my Five on Friday this week.  

{One} Monogrammed Cylinder Vase - This is the vase I received and it is gorgeous and perfect for long stem flowers such as Easter lilies or Sunflowers.  

{Two} Monogrammed Bud Vase - I adore this bud vase for any room in the house.  Don't flowers add such a special touch to every room??

{Three}  Monogrammed Rectangle Box - This box is perfect for a woman's vanity or for a man's cuff links or money clip?  I love this "catch all" box.  

 {Four} Sorority Pin Holder - We all know how much we cherished our sorority items when we were in college.  How perfect is this gift for a friend, sister,  or cousin??

{Five} Monogrammed Coffee Mug - Every blogger loves themselves a fancy mug to drink their morning (or afternoon) coffee and peruse their favorite blogs.  Thirteenth Colony Clay Company is offering one of you lucky readers a free mug!!
