 Well, hello everybody! Today I'm introducing you to two lovely ladies who contributed to my birthday giveaway! If you want to enter to win these items and many more fantastic things, go enter to win here!

Ive had big plans lately to show this little lady some EtsyLove, but when she agreed to be apart of my giveaway, I thought well...what better time than now?!
I'm so obsessed with her etsy shop, where she had paints the most amazing kawaii themed shoes and russian dolls.

How did you come up with the brilliant idea of customizing shoes?
One day I got really bored with some old brogues of mine and decided to jazz them up with some cute teddy bears. After that I was kind of hooked.

Which project has been your favorite?
So far my ultimate favourite has been the unicorn brogues. The customer just asked for unicorns and pretty much let me use my own ideas for everything else. And as a big animal lover, I also really love doing shoes & Russian dolls with peoples pets on! It always seems to make them that little bit more special and personalized.

When and why did you start your blog and shop?
I opened PonyChops almost 2 years ago (November 2010). At first I focused mainly on vintage clothes and a bit of jewellery. I just love fashion and wanted to share my finds with the world! But I realized I wanted to do more than sell other peoples designs, I wanted to sell my own! So I started selling hand painted shoes in the shop. My aim is to learn how to actually make shoes this year too.

For my birthday bash she is giving away a custom digital portrait of the winner! Imagine all of the fun things you could do with this! Use it for your blog,business, stationary; there are so many possibilities!

When is your birthday?
16th March

What is your Standout Birthday memory?  
I think I probably fell for my boyfriend on a drunken birthday night out. We were just friends back then, and his Birthday is on the 17th or March, so we always used to share a fancy dress night out. There's something about seeing him in fancy dress as a robotic prostitute clown that makes me love him even more.

What is the Best gift you ever received?
I remember getting my first sewing machine from my mum at aged 16, I still have it and it's still one of the most useful and infuriating pieces of machinery I have.

 I couldn't be more excited then to present Sandra from Lara's Vintage today as part of my birthday extravaganza. As I've mentioned before, she's hosts THRIFTY THURSDAY with me, and we are also pen pals! When this blog was in its infancy this wonderful lady became a follower of mine. She reached out to me and offered several helping hands and I don't think I would have started taking this space seriously if I hadn't found a friend in her.
She has been so generous and offered up these lovely vintage canisters to the winner!
Aren't those awesome?
I love the floral pattern in the glass, and bright orange is always great,especially in a kitchen!

When is your birthday? 
My birthday is November 06.  

Memory that most stands out? 
Hmmm I'd have to say my 15th birthday. I had a surprise quinciañera {which is a sweet 16} with a mariachi and all haha. 

Best birthday gift you have received? 
My best birthday gift would be my camera! A Nikon D60 I got a few years back.

Leave these ladies some love and have a wonderful day!
