Darling Dainties: Cast your vote, pick a winner!

I can’t even tell you how hard it was to pick finalists from all of the entries. The ideas were so diverse and cool, that I couldn’t bring myself to pick just three. So I upped it to five finalists. You can click each one to see the original entry, if you like. Please vote on your favorite at the end of the post!

I’m so excited to be a FINALIST! These are all really awesome, and I wish everyone best of luck :D

Yeah! Thank you Sarai! I am so thrilled to be a finalist-they are all gorgeous!

Thank you, Sarai! I agree, there are so many beautiful entries. I want to see them all made up!

They’re all so nice! My vote is for the Nautical Nutmeg though—it’s sweet, fun, and I’d definitely wear that style.

They are all so inspirational! I love how different the Nautical Nutmeg story is, I wouldn’t have associated ‘nautical’ with lingerie at first!

It was a difficult choice. I found “Neighbors will be shocked” most appropriate though Carnivale was good too and I love Courtney’s drawings. All were really good though.

So many fun things! I was torn for a favorite between Neighbors and Nautical Nutmeg but kept coming back to Nutmeg in the end.
