Giveaway No. 2 // Leather via Annie Williams

I have been so excited to share with you guys the next giveaway for #12days1story!

I first met Annie Williams at a bar with a whole bunch of friends in Nashville back when Patrick and I first started dating.  At the time, she was a musician, and just a few months later (11 to be exact) she was shaking a tamborine and singing “O Heavenly Day” at our wedding. Needless to say, she’s pretty talented.

But more recently, I’ve been even more blown away by her newest venture in leather working! Check out her work…

Shop // Twitter // Facebook

Can’t you imagine just how wonderful her shop must smell?


The great news about today’s giveaway is that it offers up something anyone can enjoy… male or female. The winner will have their choice of one of the following two products from Annie Williams’ winter line:

For the lads, a single card wallet

Or lassies, a 13″ Taupe clutch

Not bad, eh?

  1. I first met Annie nine or ten years ago in Laramie, Wyoming. We raced on the cycling team together, hung out quite a bit, my parents met her at church and thought we should date. Ah parents… But my two most fond memories are giving here a guitar, yes it was a cheap guitar, but seeing her light up, and when I got the call from her and Ben telling me they were engaged. Annie is one of the sweetest most talented individuals I have had the privilege of knowing, and I love her leather work. Wish her the best in all of her future endeavours.

  2. I didn’t know you knew Annie. She and Ben live with one of my best friends in the Nashville Greenlands community. I love the shape of her 14″ Nut Brown Western. So glad she’s getting exposure on your blog!

  3. I love the 13″ red leather clutch but I also love it in taupe, how cool that this is from who sang at your wedding! Love you and your writing and I wish we weren’t so far away from each other – I’m still hoping to be able visit you in Nashville at some point, maybe this coming summer after I GRADUATE (what?!) – miss you!

  4. So many beautiful ones! I think I love the one you guys are giving away, because it would go with so many things. All are so beautiful though!

  5. Hmm, this is awesome. I love several things: That nashville has cool people like Annie and Ben being awesome and making things that are high-quality and unique, that I know the models in the photos on her web site (Hi Caylin), and that there are dogs featured as well. And last but not least, my favorite item: The phone wallet (for when I get a smart phone some day).

  6. I’ve been friends with annie for awhile, she sang with the Medders at our reception! She’s so wonderfully talented! I love her clutches (all of them) and I’ve told my husband that he someday has to buy me one. 🙂

  7. I’ve read both installments of longspur. Love that lil bird and am so excited/anxious about the passing!
