Ya’ll already know how much I LOVE me some Kaori glass! Well, Kaori has been Generous enough to offer TWO prizes to TWO winners!!!!

Exciting right? SO excited for all of you!!!

Before we start… I want all of YOU who weren’t reading along in the very FIRST giveaway we had with Kaori Glass to know the reason why Kaori started her mustache business.

So, this is what Kaori shared with me… :)

Kaori Started this business just after her Father, who was also her best

friend, passed away 3 years ago.

When she paints she thinks about him. Every mustache she paints is a

reminder of their love and friendship.

These pieces of art, are not only, RAD they have a deep feeling and

meaning behind them. She puts LOVE into each and every one of

these pieces!

This business is not just a LOVE of making handmade pieces to Kaori…. it is more special that we can imagine. Not only does she have talent… But, her shop and customers mean SO much to her.

Okay Okay, Before I get into WHAT you could win and HOW you can win it… check out some of the FAB new stuff from her shop!!!

Can I say wedding gift????? PERFECT! Actually, I was given a present when I got married….by my best friend’s mother. She told me they were “Conversation Mugs” Every time we needed to work something out…or just needed to have time together….to pull these out and we can’t take any calls or ANYTHING… until we both finish our coffee :) I am pretty sure this is now going to be my GO to gift for weddings :) HANDMADE….special and totally perfect for new couples :)

The fog creates this amazing silhouette of the surfers. I LOVED it. SO cool.

Aren’t surfers AMAZING?? SO talented and doing something they absolutely love. They adore every second of it. it shows in their rides and on their faces to and from the water…. God is SO good to create something that so many people could take SO much joy from. What a GREAT God we have!

That concludes our wonderful beach day :) … onto our FAB time at my cousins wedding!
