This giveaway is in partnership with Nakturnal, and includes a prize of a gift card for $50 to Picket Fence. I have received compensation for this post, but all opinions are my own.
The Picket Fence is a small boutique and one of the cutest little baby stores in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From colorful housewares to one-of-a-kind clothing, jewelry, and accessories for kids, babies, and women made by both small and well-know designers, they offer personal assistance in finding that special something for a friend, a child, or even yourself! Is your child or a niece, nephew, or grandchild having a birthday? They carry a number of distinctive toys that are not widely available, so you are sure find something special that reflects each child’s unique personality. The Picket Fence also has fun, Pittsburgh-themed gifts for the city lovers!
For years, owner Patti Staley and her daughters had the opportunity to travel throughout the country. Patti usually returned from her travels with one-of-a-kind gifts she hadn’t been able to find in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After returning from one trip to Los Angeles with a particularly stunning piece of hand-made jewelry and a few designer outfits for her grandchildren, Patti had the idea that she could share the treasures from her shopping expeditions by starting a boutique of her own. Patti wanted to create a cozy atmosphere in which customers could discover unique items that would enhance the beauty of all areas of their home, thus, The Picket Fence was born. And ever since, Patti and her daughters have gathered an eclectic collection of quality merchandise!
I have been looking everywhere for some decorative, fun, yet durable plates for my children. At 9, 7, and 5, they are getting too big for the well-loved IKEA plate and bowl sets, and too “mature” for the old, Disney plates. when I was young, my parents had these high quality Melmac (molded from melamine resin) dishes that, to this day, are still used for (grand)children in their home! But, unlike the 70 oranges and yellows, I wanted something prettier (after all, I do have two girls!)
Enter The Picket Fence, and their ADORABLE Paris Flea Melamine Plates, made from beautiful, vintage French wallpaper prints, available in sets of four in two sizes (BOTH larger than the old IKEA and Disney plates!) And before all my crunchy mamas lynch me for using the god-forsaken melamine, have no fear, these ones are BPA-free! (Do not microwave, and if you want to be extry extry careful, just hand wash them)
So check out The Picket Fence, and support this awesome mama-made shop. Give them some Facebook and Twitter love, too!

Or maybe, like me, you’re trying to find for them to use! There are no wrong answers! A winner will be chosen at random and contacted after Monday, March 27th.
I hope my son loves my giant stuffed lion Azalon as much as I did. It’s promising, he’s already trying to carry it around and it’s bigger than him.
Congratulations! You are the winner! Please watch your email for a message about how to claim your prize.
I’m so excited! Thank you so much! Can’t wait to shop!
Something I hope my kids use is my doll collection from my great grandmother. The dolls are so special to me and I hope my kids appreciate them as much as I do.
