Last Day: Anthropologie Ikat Mimi Bowls Giveaway + Random Tidbits


Today is the last day to enter to win this stylish set of Ikat Mimi Bowls in four colors from Anthropologie. If you have not already done so, simply subscribe to House of Fifty for a chance to win by clicking here.

Look for the winner to be announced tomorrow!


Also, a big thanks to Shari of little blue deer for designing the button for House of Fifty this past week. You can grab it from the sidebar if you feel so inclined!


Thank you to everyone who was written and left wonderful comments regarding this new venture, and a big thanks to all the contributors who are working on the e-zine with me. It is proving to be a lot of fun to collaborate with this great group on their stories and articles! And here's a little inside scoop, this is truly a team effort coming from the "house of beals", with my husband signing on as assistant editor. There is no one's opinion I trust more than his, he is my number one supporter, and lucky for me he is also a talented writer with a background in journalism.

And now I'm off with another contributor to interview an interesting couple who runs a business in the Portland area. During this meeting I'll be getting fitted for an item associated with a story...and no, it is not a bra! No more hints, you'll just have to wait and see.

Tomorrow: It's back to decorating...I'll be sharing progress on the table, which I've begun to sand!

  4. I'm intrigued by what you're getting fitted for. My guess is a wedding gown. You're renewing your vows in honor of your House of Fifty partnershp! :) That's wonderful your husband is part of this.

  5. Okay Emily, that is sweet, but not what I am up to! I have thought of renewing our vows, to get great pictures and have a wedding cake, two things we didn't have the first time around! Oh, and because it would mean something as well...:)

  8. How awesome to have your husband as assistant editor, especially with his experience. I'm a little (lot) jealous of you going off to interview someone this morning - it sounds like so much fun, and I can't wait to see what you're being fitted for.

    (yes. I do think you should paint your powder room begonia. :-))

  17. Wow! It's been a while since I've been reading and I didn't know this was coming to fruition! I am genuinely excited for you, I think it's fantastic and I can't wait to read it. I also love the title. We women keep getting better as the numbers roll on, don't you think? :) Great luck with all of this, though I'm certain you don't need it!
