Lovin’ Me Some Gussy (& A Giveaway!)

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I love Etsy shops and various small “handmade” businesses. I’ve recently discovered (via Twitter) the sweetest, most adorable girl named Maggie — and she sews…ruffles!

I immediately fell in love with Maggie’s (aka Gussy’s) amazing products! At Blissdom I had the privilege of meeting Maggie and seeing her ruffles first hand.  Pure gorgeousness!


I’m so excited because Maggie gave me my very own skinny zippered wallet to review!  Isn’t it adorable?  I love the vintage pattern with the red ruffle.  Besides being extremely well made, this wallet is perfect for carrying my debit card, lip gloss, driver’s license and gym key.


Best of all, Gussy has offered one of you, my sweet readers, a $20.00 store credit to her Gussy shop!  Yay!  Be sure to check out Gussy’s Etsy shop as well!

  1. I fell in love with Maggie’s stuff after seeing her at Blissdom (had to check out her site). I would LOVE one of her awesome laptop bags similiar to the ones that she made some of the Blissdom girls.

  2. You’re hillarious, my love! You’re gonna have like 10 billion comments by the 15th. Happy anniversary, babe. I love you and thanks for marrying me!!

  3. Love this…. Lovely Gus – Church Flowers, Pink Zipped Pouch with Red Ruffle (medium size). Girly flowers and perfect size to slip into the diaper bag!

  4. Why, yes Miss Gussy, I’d love to win! I’m a new reader and follower and am happy to join. Your blog is lovely but love the message more so. Recently…this week in fact…I was talking on my blog about being an authentic blogger and how some caution bloggers not to discuss politics or religion as that could be a turn off to readers. I maintain it’s simply not possible (for me) to be authentic and not talk about my relationship with God and Jesus.
    But, I’m confused…did you change your blog name from “My Blessed Life” to your name, “Maggie Whitley”?
    God’s blessings on you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

  5. Oh I would love to win this! Please enter me into your giveaway.

    Thanks so much.

  6. It was nice meeting you (and Gussy) at Blissdom! I saw someone carrying one of her bags at lunch on Saturday and have been eying her website ever since. Love the larger houndstooth clutches.
