For You! (a giveaway)

Photobucket
Better late than never, I am so excited to share our little giveaway! We wanted to thank you all for your sweet thoughts, comments and emails since the beginning of December (when I had my appendix removed) until today (as we mop up water and lament all the hardwork our floors will need). I am hoping that our string of misadventures is at an end and we can finally get back to painting, hammering and planning our next move (let's hope it is the closet getting done!).
But amidst all this you have been patient, caring and helpful and this is the best way we can think of thanking you: sharing a collection of some of our favorite decor items.
The first item is our candle of the month. Not the 70% used one I have been burning all month just in case you were wondering, but a fresh, new Makassar Ebony & Peach candle by Voluspa.
Photobucket
The second item in the package is a framed book plate from 1857 depicting kelp and coral.
Photobucket
You may remember the other 15 plates hanging in our dining room until my giant mirror took their spot, but they will be making a comeback in the office!

The next item is geared toward all my fellow crafters! It is a 1940's book of French sheet music that has a few adorable illustrations like this one. I am a huge fan of paper wreaths and while I haven't had a chance to start on my own, hopefully someone can do this music proud! (we also have an alternative use for it in an upcoming post that is a little unique if you have enough wreaths already).
Photobucket
As you know, we love both plants and candles and one of our favorite ways to display either is in beautiful old soup tureens!
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
So of course we included a beautiful vintage tureen! But you have to promise to tell us how you use it.
Photobucket
And last but not least we have a 16x16 inch pillow cover from Sa-Sea boutique, identical to the one floating around our house (and currently residing on our bed). It is a whimsical touch that makes me smile everytime I look at it, and I hope you smile a little too when you find a spot for it.
Photobucket
So to sum it up, 1 lucky reader will win:
1 voluspa 3 wick candle tin
1 antique framed book plate
1 vintage soup tureen
1 book of 1940's French sheet music
1 16x16 inch crowned bee pillow cover
And all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling us what your favorite item of the group is!
*** for an additional entry become a follower of our blog and leave an additional comment. If you are already a follower please leave another comment as well!***
Good luck!
EDITED TO ADD: The closing date will be Friday, January 28th at 8pm pacific.

A Noble Effort said...

Oh there it is?! I bookmarked the chest with the 15 frames and topiaries, but lost it. I searched for and never found it. UNTIL NOW! Thank you!

But please help.....are those topiaries live? If so, what are they, and how did you keep them alive?

Holly and Sean said...

A Noble Effort, thanks so much, the plants are real and are Myrtle topiaries. They are pretty easy going plants, but the need to be watered daily. Since I am a chronic over-waterrer it is a good combo for me LOL.

Amanda said...

i can hardly contain my excitement over your giveaway AND another peak at the master bedroom! LOL. ;)

i'd have to say the bookplate would be my favorite since i HAVE to pick just one fave. Jack's room is done, for now, and it would look amazing over his little desk. :) as soon as the sun decides to shine (could be months from now), i'll photograph and post about it. until then, i'm sharing all of the ghastly "before" pictures today. yikes!

you know how i love your feedback so i look forward to what you think of it all. :)

Oh I love all of it, but my fave would be the vintage tureen. (Smiling while visualizing it filled with succulents sitting on my side table! :) )Great giveaway!

Emily Joyce said...

Oh my, it's hard to choose! The book plate would be lovely in our beach themed bathroom, I always love candles, the pillow cover would go in our guest room on one of the winged chairs, and I would love to copy you and plant paperwhites in the tureen. My favorite, I have to say, is the French music. So many possibilities!

Mindi said...

Courtney said...

What a great giveaway. I'd have to say the sheet music. My brain keeps coming up with ways to use them and I am not at all creative. I can only imagine what my mother in law would suggest to do with it (interior designer).
