I Have A Surprise For YOU, My Dear Readers!!



I have professed many times that I am a pillow addict and if you don’t believe me ask anyone who knows me well or has ever been shopping with me, they will tell you there are two things in the decorating category that I can’t refuse, pillows and lighting!!

Today I am going to talk about pillows. Pillows can make or break a room. They can add color and pattern to a neutral space or style to a generic space.

I recently have done quite a bit of fabric and pillow shopping for my family room re-do. 

In my looking I ran across Spark Modern an Etsy shop that I wound up ordering from.

The owners of this Etsy shop are Lauren and Amy!

I am a pretty picky customer, and I had several questions to ask them before placing my order. They always responded quickly, and kindly, never making me feel as if I were too picky! (trust me I know I am!)

I loved working with them so much I asked if they would like to do a giveaway on my blog.

They both agreed and offered to giveaway one square 20in.X 20in.  pillow in a wonderful fabric that will go with just about anything.
 
This fabric comes in 8 different colorways, so there is something for everyone! If I were choosing I would choose the black or indigo colorways for my home!
BETWIXT

I don’t like to make my readers jump through media-hoops, but I would like you to go to their site, and look at all their offerings. There is a very good reason to go over there!

il_570xN.426675343_fghu

 THE REASON!!
While you are there choose which colorway in the BETWIXT pattern YOU would like in your own home, and leave a comment here to tell me which one you loved. 

If you win that is the  color of the BETWIXT pillow you will be receiving!! Isn’t that great YOU get to pick the color!!

This will automatically put you in for the random drawing which will be held, Sunday March 10th and announced on Monday  March 11th!

While you are on their Etsy site if you could mark them as a Favorite that would be great, but it is not a requirement to be in the drawing.

Be sure and leave a way for me to contact you in the comments.

Good luck and have fun perusing over at Spark Modern!!

I think I love the water/ivory in the betwixt!!!

Kelli said...

Have loved the betwixt for a long time! I would have to pick the charcoal. Would love to order from etsy but its the "no return policies" that keep me from it. It's just too hard to know if colors etc will work and when choosing expensive items, I'm afraid of something not working and not being able to return it. What are your thoughts on this Kathysue? How do you avoid mistakes with pillows etc from etsy sellers?

Kathysue said...

Kelli, most sellers offer samples if you have any doubt. I had a sample of the fabric before I ordered my pillows from a fabric vendor, but sellers often will have samples they can send you.

Kat said...

What a wonderful giveaway! And what a great shop, it has been added to my favorites. I think I would have to go with the stone. Perfect for the master reno!
