MAY GIVEAWAY! Win $75 from Novica!

13 May

Last month, a fair trade home decor and more retailer called Novica approached me and asked that I review their new website on my blog. When I agreed to, they graciously offered a $75 gift certificate to one of my readers! How lucky for you guys!

Win $75 from Novica!

Novica is a fair-trade online retailer, in a partnership with National Geographic, that supports artisians around the world. They offer lots of unique goodies in the form of home decor, jewelry, art, furniture, and clothing. They even have really neat musical instruments! I really like how they provide biographical information on each of their artists, thereby facilitating a real connection with the products; for fair trade items, that’s really fitting and very neat.

Here are my top five picks for “home” from Novica. Each items is unique and lovely:

Win $75 from Novica!

1.) Vase  2.) Basket  3.) Table   4.) Mirror  5.) Painting 

They offer a wide range of price points, which makes Novica a fun place to shop even for those on a budget. For example, the rattan basket is under $60 while the painting is over $450. I scored this lamp for about $85 (notice it from the sneak-peek last week?):

Oh my…it’s been a while.

29 Dec

…sorry about that!

Love these colors! (image via Elle Decor)

The past week has been full of joy for my family, and I hope it was for yours too. December was also a month chock-full of strep throat and colds (both for me and my son, each multiple times), so the recovery has been slow and my posting has been lagging. We spent Christmas in my husband’s home town, which is a 12-hour drive away, and we included a detour to Chicago to visit his sister and her husband. The car trip was exhausting but the company was lovely, and we arrived back last night full of cheer and cookies and supplied with gifts, memories and hugs. (And trucks. Lots of trucks.) My son made a new best friend in the form of a stuffed jaguar he’s named “Hooka Heeka Hoka Highway” (I don’t even know, you guys) and he got to spend much needed time with his far away family. It was a good week. …and our colds are much better!

I’ll be back to regular daily-ish posting next week, but before that I’ll be having a new GIVEAWAY beginning tomorrow! Just think of it as my special way of saying “Sorry for being MIA for nine days, and Happy Holidays!”  It’s a good one, sure to provide you with inspiration all year round!

Until then, have a lovely last few days of 2011! I’ll be catching up on the Christmas cookies I didn’t make when I was covered in germs. Like these…

Giveaway!!! Hive Vase from West Elm!

23 May

I love West Elm’s accessories for their affordability and constant reinvention. They also have incredible designer collaborations, where they team up with artisans like David Stark and Lourdes Sanchez to offer exclusive and chic items at better prices than you’d find elsewhere. Genius!

Right now, I’m really loving the Hive Vases. In three different colors and four different shapes they’re the essence of sculpture, color, and summer. My favorite is the white one pictured below:

Click here to see the whole collection in peridot, white and turquoise.  If you think the tall turquoise vase looks familiar you’re right…it was featured in last week’s Color Friday!

As usual, the giveaway is simple, and it works like this:

You leave a comment on this post indicating which vase — shape and color — is your favorite, and a winner will be drawn at random from the commenters.  The prize is whichever vase you choose!  The drawing will be open until 11:59 pm on Wednesday, May 25th.  So enter, tell your friends, and revel in the suspense!

Happy Monday, and Good Luck!
