Dayspring- Things I Love Thursday (Plus a GIVEAWAY!)

TILT I began reading the (in)courage blog a while back because a few of my favorite bloggers write for them. I don’t always get a chance to read every post, but I find myself frequently putting them in my weekend reviews because they often times speak so clearly to me. For the last two years at Blissdom, the ladies of (in)courage have hosted a super fun “beach party” filled to the brim with chocolate and laughter and gorgeous décor.

That décor is brought to you by Dayspring. As I looked around the room my eyes got big and I pretty much thought, “I’ll take one of those, ooh and one of those, oh and that one too.” So I was super excited when (in)courage and Dayspring offered up a giveaway to one of my readers with a little something for me as well.

I have this teeny tiny outdated bathroom on the main floor of my house that I have spent no time decorating. Actually it was the very room I painted, but then a whole lot of nothing. When I saw the Heart and Globe Canvas Print I knew it would be perfect on the wall and just the thing this little room needed.


It has the beautiful words of John 3:16 surrounding a heart with vivid, gorgeous colors. My bathroom is turquoise and brown so it compliments and completes the room perfectly. I am so happy to finally have something on the wall and the fact that is has such an meaningful message is even cooler.

Would you like to win a gift certificate from Dayspring? I have a $50 one up for grabs. To win, I need you to head over to the Dayspring site and leave me a comment letting me know what you would spend your money on. There are so many beautiful things to chose from I don’t think you will have any problem spending that cash.

For extra entries, link up to Things I Love Thursday and then leave an EXTRA comment letting me know you did so since the winner will be drawn from the comments. Tweet, Facebook or blog about the contest and you can get an extra entry as well. Just make sure to leave a separate comment for each. Good luck!!

Contest is open to US residents only. Winner will be drawn at random on Feb. 23rd.

  1. I LOVE the John 3:16 print you featured… and I also love their book crops – I know those don’t add up to $50, but I’d get Trust in the Lord in a book crop and the print, too…

  2. If I won the gift card I would want to get the Colors of Compassion Encouragement cards, really, any of the cards, they are all so beautiful!

  3. Ok…so this is probably totally NOT allowed, but I’d buy the same canvas that you did [the heart and globe canvas print]!! We just redid our bedroom and are lacking in art that is not all…kids. I am on week 4 of your challenge, and this would be a perfect way to bring God into the room, while focusing on love. Thanks for the op!!

  4. I love your print too! Happy TILT:)

  8. Hmmm…the Peace & Love Handmade Block, or the God is Good print, or… perhaps I’d just buy as many of Ann Voskamp’s “One Thousand Gifts” book as the gift card would buy to gift to others. It’s *that* awesome! ;-)

  32. Sooo many WONDERFUL things to choose from. I flip flop – be selfish and pick something for me, like Lisa Leonard’s “By Grace Alone” necklace – or go with something for everyone, like one of the book crops (I like Amazing Grace).
