(GIVEAWAY) & Guest Blogging-- 2 truths and a lie.

Hi all,

We are making big fun changes here at barley & birch. New website in the works that will blow your minds, we're transitioning into our cool spring collection (see photo above) and we're designing Fall 2010.

One thing I have been wanting to do is to have guest bloggers on here as we begin to develop the blog more. But, like, we are sort of not-for-serious with our blogging and like to have fun with it, so I was having a hard time finding a theme to unite a series of serious and meaningful blog posts.

Then it hit me-- it doesn't have to be serious like the other guest posting going on! It can be fun and silly! (Then we can transition into significance.)


I am pleased to announce that our guest bloggers will be playing one of my favorite conversation starters here on barley & birch's blog: two truths and a lie.

This will give us an opportunity to showcase some of our dearest friends and their quirky lives that make us love them SO MUCH.

To kick off our game, I shall begin. Guess the lie, be entered to win a barley & birch piece of your choice!


1. My mom sang backup with Bruce Springsteen on one of his tours before I was born.
2. I am afraid of clowns and things in costumes.
3. I have two fake teeth.

Post your guesses below! We will announce the winner, and correct answer, next week!


P.S. E-mail me if you ever want to guest post!


  1. Im going to guess that #2 is a lie.

  2. I'm going to say Number 2 as well.

    Yay for guest posts!(and sillies)

  3. Uhhhhh...... Im going with #3...

    ONly because I hate all things in costumes... lol So it COULD be true since we have so much in common, lol

  4. Dude, you do NOT have two fake teeth.

    Lies, lies, lies.

    (and if I'm totally wrong and you do---CAN I SEE THEM?? --for realz--I'm weird that way)

  7. Hey! I totally want to guest blog, too! ;P

  8. Well I KNOW number 3 is the truth....so I'm guessing 1 is the lie.

  9. Brandi? #3 is the truth? Shoot....

    Uhhh.... can I change my answer to #2?

  10. I'm guessing #2 -- how could you be afraid of clowns and work on kids clothes??!?

    I'd love to guest post if possible!

  11. #1. Lie. I know.

    but for the record, if it isn't a lie, I'm sending you Xorro via FedEx.

  12. If Alia says #1, I'm going with that. I don't think anyone would know you better. I'm pretty sure you have two fake teeth and are afraid of clowns though.
