    My favorite is ted

    It’s so special. It’s a little more than I can afford, but it is so inspiring that even looking at it makes me happy.

  2. sonrie says:

    I really like the Flower “Simplicity” Print from Leah Duncan.

  3. MsUnreliable says:

    As much as I love the adorable flower pins by the pleated poppy, I think the ‘lost in a daydream’ print is just what I need.

    One day when I stop procrastinating, I hope to be a full time writer (design journalist in fact), and this lovely print would take pride of place above my desk to inspire me daily!

  4. bunny says:

    I love the Luxurious Wool & Alpaca Shawl and the Twist and Shout Merino Wool Knit Scarf! They’re so gorgeous and stylish, plus they’d keep me warm during winter.

  5. Ali says:

    I love the mixed media painting called Manzanilla – it would be the perfect gift for my map and bird-loving friend πŸ™‚ Here’s the link:

  6. sade says:

    The Wildlife Necklace from Luxe Deluxe.
    I’ve been wanting a pair of (real) antlers for some time now, but I’m practically a nomad who lives off moving boxes, so that’s just not gonna work. This necklace is a little out of my price range, but would be the perfect solution to end all my misery!

  9. nikki says:

    Despite the fact that I feel this question is akin to asking someone to choose their favorite child, I’d have to say oneof my favorites is the ‘enchanted garden’ print from mkendall, here:
    – It’s so sparkly and warm and just beautiful.

  10. amanda says:

    I am feeling kissy-kissy about A Common Thread’s cashmere blend cowl.

    Oh, please, let it be me!

  11. Carolyn says:

    While I agree with nikki and the others that it’s nearly impossible to choose my favorite out of this bunch, I’ve been eyeing Michele Bosak’s work for a while now, and I’m very excited to see a small bundle of her art in this giveaway.

    Her style is very clean and understated, which I really love; it’s the perfect mix of catchiness and quietness. And either of the pieces offered above would loook lovely in my new apartment and make me oh so happy!

  12. I love the Avenue screen-printed fabric from Summersville. It would make very cute, bright bags!

  13. I also love the Butterfly Celebration wreath from Royal Buffet – it is so whimsical and ethereal and would make a perfect decoration for my new house.

  14. I am simply smitten with Moon’s little arugumi. I am planning on purchasing a few to give away as holiday gifts.I really like the ones with hoodies, like Autumn Forrest Moon. But I think I will have a shot at designing my own as she offers customs creations! I love all things hand made and have deep respect for the artsists who make things.I always eenjoying window shopping in your shop and reading the blog – thanks for having your give-away, it is lots of fun!
