SGSG-Winterthur Store Review and Giveaway!!

It's finally here! I am so excited about the 2nd annual Spectacular Gift Shopping Guide! I have to admit this is my favorite event of any that I have done! I decided to kick the Gift Guide off with a company that offers so many beautiful items just perfect for gift-giving. Many of you are familiar with Plow and Hearth, but until a couple months ago I was unfamiliar with some of their other brands. Once I visited the Winterthur Store though, I was hooked! After browsing for some time, I decided on the item for my review. 
I received the Reverse-Painted Exotic Birds Trinket Box, and while it looks beautiful on the website, pictures really do not do justice to it. It came very well packaged to prevent damage, and arrived in perfect shape. 




It is slightly larger than I expected, so while it would be great for a jewelry box, it would also work for holding important papers, mementos, etc. The feet and  silver trim combine to make this box look like an antique treasure! What really makes it special, though, is the breathtaking paintings on each side and the top, with lovely birds sitting in branches. It is absolutely stunning! 





The trinket box is very well made, and would be the perfect gift for any bird lover, or special lady in your life. M loves birds and bird-watching, so this will be one of M's holiday presents. I know she will love it!
One of my readers will have the chance to go gift-shopping at the Winterthur Store with a $50.00 gift certificate!!
