{52 Dresses} Week 24 | Petals and Gowns by Clkeerins

Congratulations Melanie Walter-Duxbury! You won Week 24 of {52 Dresses}!

The Skinny on Year Two of {52 Dresses}:

  • Make sure to check out {52 Dresses} Year One and the current {52 Dresses}!
  • I’m working with boutique businesses who create fabulous children’s fashions!
  • I’ll be spotlighting a different business each week; sharing their talents with you!
  • A little AWESOMENESS: I’ll be doing a G I V E A W A Y from the business every week!
  • The dresses that I photograph in the {52 Dresses} project will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa next spring and be distributed to little girls in need!┬áIt’s going to be amazing! There are currently over 60 dresses ready to be delivered!

*For those of you who are interested in an update on my mom and dad, they are still stateside after returning from Johannesburg. They here to spend Christmas with us and then they are heading back to SLC where my mom will be having back surgery after the first of the year. It’s still unclear as to what will happen after that (whether they will return to Johannesburg or not). But I always have the option to send the dresses to a friend of theirs in Johannesburg who would be able to distribute them to little girls in need. Your prayers are appreciated while my mom goes through surgery and recovery. It’s going to be a bit of a long road.

This week’s dress is sponsored by Petals & Gowns by CLKeerins. I’ve known Christy for a few years now. She’s incredibly talented and I’m always in awe at the quality of her dresses. Two of her dresses were a part of {52 Dresses} Year One and she also sponsored Week 17 of this year!

Here’s a little about Christy and Petals and Gowns:

Petals and Gowns bloomed from my love of weddings and designing dresses for little girls dresses with the need to be able to complete a dress in a shorter amount of time, due to the busy life of being a wife, mother, and homeschooling my three children. I also enjoy making flowers which I put on my dresses and create headbands. My family and I live a very active life in Kodiak, Alaska. It truly is an amazing state!

The dress she sent for Week 24 is incredible! You have the opportunity to win one just like it for your little girl! You can choose red or chartreuse green (like this one). You definitely want to check out her Etsy store! She makes the most gorgeous dresses for weddings and special occasions! And she has generously donated this dress to be taken to South Africa next year to be given to a young girl in need!

Miss B was a willing model this week and was showing off for Grandma and Grandpa. I’m so glad that they are here to spend the holidays with us! We talked to them often via FaceTime while they were in South Africa, but I’m so glad that we are getting this time with them! You can check out a few pics I took of them with my kiddos here.
