I am so excited to host by first Giveaway to celebrate reaching 100 followers!

Thank you to all of you who have been following me since I started this past May. Blogging has been such fun; a creative outlet as well as a great resource! I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you, your humor, sense of style and creativity! Thank you all for your comments, those that post daily and those that pop in every so often. It's wonderful to hear from you either way!
I have decided to host my first "New England Giveaway" featuring two New England boutiques that I posted about earlier. They both joined Preppyinnewengland early on. Sarah and Jen have been lovely to work with and are so generous to offer these fab items!

Joining me are; upmysleeve and thetrendytot! These items are so beautiful for your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or a special little girl you know of!

  2. What a fabulous giveaway! You know how much I love those lightship baskets :)

    I'm a follower, my favorite place in New England is my home but when I venture out I love Nantucket, Mystic, and Newport.

    I love the lightship basket with the scallop shell ~ to be honest, all of her baskets are lovely!


  3. OMG, what a fantastic giveaway!

    Okay - I am a follower of all of you on facebook and/or here.

    I love the whale dress and the Ipswich necklace...the necklace is just gorgeous and right up my alley. My daughter is adorable in whale outfits and I love the starfish dress and purse too. I love everything!

    New England - Nantucket....

  5. Such beautiful colors and design! I am now your follower ;-)
    Thank you!

  6. Hi ALL, Up My Sleeve is thrilled to be involved in this fabulous give-a-way. What better way to get a head start on that L O N G holiday list! We're pleased to announce we're rolling out our new website, which offers many more styles than our ETSY shop. The site is still a tad under construction but I'm happy to give Preppy In New England followers a sneak peak: www.upmysleeveboutique.com

  7. What a fun giveaway :)

    1. I'm a follower of this blog!

    2. I am a fan of both boutiques.

    3. Although I love EVERYTHING that The Trendy Tot puts together, I have to say that my favorite is still the Pink Whale of a Jumper!

    I'm so excited to have newly found Up My Sleeve Boutique! I have to say I just LOVE the Round Monogram Nantucket Basket Purse!! So sweet!

    4. I just did a blog post about your giveaway

    5. My favorite place in New England would have to be either Osterville or Hyannis - my grandparents had a cottage in both of these towns as I was growing up (one and then the other). I have such wonderful memories there and wish my Nana hadn't sold it before she passes away - I would have LOVED to have gone back year after year and give my daughter the same kind of memories... maybe when I win the lotto :)

  8. Hi Jen:

    Oooo, I want one of these Nantucket dresses and the beautiful baskets bring back such fond memories of spending my summers in Hyannisport when I was a girl!

    Am following both of you on FB and will post something to my (neglected) blog later today--finally a reason to post something! :)

    Hmmm, fave thing...where to start? Torn btw. the elephant dress (my fave animal) and the owl poncho.

    Fave places in NE? Weekapaug, RI (spent many happy summers there) and Middlebury, VT, host town to my alma mater.

    Keep up the fabulous work and please PLEASE pick my name! :)

  9. Have loved that dress for a looooong time. If I win, I'm going to have to buy it in another size also, for baby!

  10. Thanks for stopping by today. It's sooo nice to meet you. Please count me in for the fabulous giveaway. I will follow!

  11. What a nice giveaway! I am a follower!

  12. I would love to enter! I love your items and I'm a follower on Blogger and Facebook!

  13. I think my favorite place in New England thus far is the Baltimore Inner Harbor.
