Freshly Picked Review & Giveaway

Written by Beth on Sep 4, 2014 in Blog -

When I was pregnant, I had tons of time to browse the internet (mainly Pinterest!) looking for nursery decor ideas and adorable baby clothes.  One day I stumbled upon Freshly Picked and couldn’t wait until my baby would be able to wear a pair of their ridiculously cute handmade leather moccasins.  My dream has finally come true!  I contacted the team at Freshly Picked about teaming up for a giveaway and they immediately sent me a pair of perfect Aruba moccs.  Then I enlisted the amazing Nina Duncan for a fun little backyard photo shoot (all photos are courtesy of Nina Duncan Photography).

For my daughter’s first birthday, I created her a handmade crown and personalized hanger for her special outfit.  It came out so well, that I decided to do a giveaway so that one lucky momma would receive a birthday prize pack for her little one – including a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins (in winner’s choice of size/color!).

I know these moccasins run true to size, so I dug out the ruler and measured her little feet.  She was just about at the tail end of size 5 and I wanted her to be able to wear them more than once (plus, her feet run wide), so I requested a size 6.  They are a bit big now, but I have a feeling they will be perfect in no time!  I also think they will be great for her wider foot, since the leather has some give.  Perfect for new walkers – even on rocky terrain 🙂

I’m dying with how cute these look on Maeve’s chunky little legs!  The elastic around the tops makes getting these on and off very easy.  I’ve heard babies have a really hard time getting them off themselves though, so that’s a bonus – no more losing shoes in Target!  These moccasins seem super sturdy, yet allow the baby to really feel the ground, which is ideal for babies still mastering walking and balance.

Maeve took a little time to smell the flowers while wearing her handmade flower birthday crown.  This aqua and coral crown is adorned with handmade felt flowers and says “one” in silver glittery letters, perfect for those first birthday photo shoots!

After wearing for a while, footprints begin to appear on the soles of the moccasins – I can’t wait for that to happen!  These are brand new, so I wasn’t able to get any adorable footprint photos – yet 🙂

    If I win I would love to donate the birthday crown to a sweet little girl whose battling cancer and won’t be able to have a party. I’m making her a big party in a box so that she can celebrate in her hospital room with her friends and family. I would buy her a pretty party dress and use the hanger. I would let her mom pick the color of the Moccs 🙂

    Would love to be chosen as the winner for this amazing giveaway. Although my little is beyond 1 years old I have a very special little girl that would love a birthday crown and hand crafted hanger. Her mother isn’t able to dish out money like most, so it’d be a nice surprise for her. But I would like fo my little to keep the pair of moccs in her favorite color – blue.

    I love this giveaway. Olivia just turned one 3 months ago but I have a great plan for the crown. Olivia is diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder called PKU and since her diagnosis I have been doing all I can to raise awareness. Together with the hospital I now am a contact for the newly diagnosed and support them through there tough journey. One of my new friends that I have met that way is Isa and she will turn one on Halloween so it would be great for her. The mocs I love in this color, the blue/ green is amazing , Olivia had one white pair when she was 6 months and I loved them! We are stationed abroad so have a US APO does that count? As for the hanger…. I would love it for Olivia to display her beautiful dresses! Good luck to all the other mommies such a great giveaway
