Giveaway

Spring is my very favourite time of year.  I love the newness of everything.  I also love the opportunity to get back on track and dispense with my slovenly winter ways.


I'm not much of a pack rat so I don't have to do much in the way of spring cleaning but while sorting out a linen closet I came across this fabulous blanket that I have been carrying with me since I closed my store almost 2 years ago.

It is 100% organic cotton with a beautiful hand drawn and silk screened image of trees that I thought would be a perfect giveaway.  It measures 44" x 90" and is light so it's perfect for spring and summer evenings. It retails for $90 but for one of you lucky readers it will be yours.  It is made by textile designer Jenna Rose from Hamilton, Ontario. She also has an etsy shop so if you are not the lucky winner you can still buy yourself a nice little thing or two.


Do you see what I"m doing here with this photo?  I"m giving you a sneak peak at the dresser that I've been distressing/staining/waxing and all the while pulling my hair out.  I will tell you all about the trials and tribulations tomorrow when I reveal the dresser.

To enter:

1.  Be a follower of The Design Pages through Google Friends Connect.  Look for the box at the right side of the page with all the happy, smiling followers and click the Follow button.

2.  Leave me a comment letting me know.  Easy, right?

The contest is open to all Canadian and American residents.  Contest closes at midnight on Thursday, March 31 and the winner will be announced on Friday, April 1.

    Loved your feature on Design*Sponge. That dresser design is going to go viral!
