I spent ages trying to come up with a prize that somehow reflected my funny little blog and I decided it had to have something to do with the domestic science that is housewifery and it had to be something pretty and it had to be something handmade. Don't worry it is nothing I've made. I'm not that cruel. That would be a boobie prize.
I was as pleased as punch a while back when I found Heather one of my lovely readers who has an awesome blog called Bebe & Alice and a fabulous Etsy Store by the same name. I love how every single thing she sells is a beautiful handmade treasure reflecting Heather's love of re-using and recycling gorgeous things. Heather says:
Each item that I create is unique. Since each item is primarily made from recycled, vintage and repurposed materials I am restricted in making repeats. The beauty in that restriction is that I am always creating unique items for unique people! I am energized and inspired by other artists that enjoy piecing together the past, present and future to create their art! My favorite type of design is Rework, which uses unwanted clothing and turns it into a stylish fashion piece of entirely different nature.
My gorgeous giveaway is this pretty Bluebells Half Apron below:
About it Heather says... Something about this apron makes me feel like I finally arrived at the dream farm I've imagined since i was 11 years old. The color is dreamy, the fabric is soft like the down of the resident goose and the design came straight from my great grandmother's hope chest.
It seemed the perfect choice for my first giveaway and I really hope you love it as much as I do. There is something lovely and wholesome about pottering about in an apron while you debate whether watching 2 episodes of Teletubbies in a row will ruin your child's IQ or whether you can pretend not to see the dog wee on the floor while you finish your last sneaky piece of store bought brownie that you pretended you made. This apron is perfect for the Stepford Dreamer in all of us.
To win all you need to do is check out Heather's store and leave me a comment below telling me which item you like best and why. I will put your names into Tinker's hat and she will pick the winner. If you choose to come over here and bribe her with a biscuit then so be it. I will be like an Balinese gaol guard and turn a blind eye.
Winner to be announced on Friday. x
