What better way to start the week than with a giveaway!
Today I am excited to introduce you to the creative duo known as Georgie Girls. The Georgie Girls, better known as Chantelle and Denise, are sisters who live in the mid-Michigan area. They were introduced to me by my friend Andrea – thanks Andrea!!
Georgie Girls creates one of a kind items out of recycled sweaters, suit coats and vintage logo wear – how fun is that!
Chantelle is a working mother with three daughters and Denise is a stay at home mom of two sons and one daughter. Their children range in age from 4 to 21 and are (along with their husbands) their greatest blessings.

I love that Chantelle and Denise are sharing the dream of a home based business!
Here’s what Chantelle and Denise have to say about their joint venture, Georgie Girls:
“We started Georgie Girls out of a desire to create fun and functional items we felt people would enjoy and could generate extra income to invest in the lives of our families. We selected the name Georgie Girls in honor of our number one fan, our mother Georgia. Our shop is made up of items we create using fashion pieces we uncover during our thrift store and garage sale shopping trips. We search for wool sweaters, suit coats, blazers, denim fashions and vintage logo wear we feel confident can be recycled and renewed to create our Georgie Girls Originals. We then select whimsical cotton prints to complete the look. Our materials are found at thrift stores across the state of Michigan where our products go towards supporting local Christian schools, The Salvation Army, World Missions and other local charities. We can honestly say we love what we do and that we especially love doing it together.“
For today’s giveaway Georgie Girls has generously donated a darling tote bag made from a recycled wool sweater.
Wouldn’t you love to own this pretty, one of a kind bag, valued at $45.00?
