For those of you in the States, we are on countdown mode. T minus one hour until the holiday weekend begins. I don’t know about you, but I can.not.wait for all the festivities. While we wait for the clock to strike five, why don’t we get to business and announce the lovely winner of this week’s Inspire Me Pretty inspiration board contest? I think that is a swell idea. So, virtual drum roll please…..the winner is…wait for it…wait for it…Erin of Sparkle & Hay! She took her love for all things rustic and makes for one heck of a Hudson Valley affair! Thanks to everyone for submitting a board, and keep them coming – just tag them Inspire Me Pretty NY and they’ll be in the running for next time – have a fabulous weekend!

In case you missed them, here are the pretty posts from SMP New York this week:
