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.


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


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!


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.


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:


I really like the wooden fruit set, I love vintage wood. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy.


Love the cards from Goshery – such great details!


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!


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.


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

Oh, please, let it be me!


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!


I love the You Are My Sunshine sign. Very sweet.


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

Jennifer Ladd

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.

Jennifer Ladd

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!

Nancy Topolski

What a fantastic selection. Gotta support the fellow Canadian Avril Loreti! Those Mustache Handkerchiefs are hilarious! Love it…

Kristin Liu

So many cute items to choose from! My favorite is the Bubble Lace Ring 4A- very unique and fashionable!


I am loving the green buttons wall hanging:

so cute!


When my Aunt Lorraine last visited from Australia, I convinced her that the jackalope was in fact a native species to the Canadian prairies and that she should keep her eyes peeled. I think I’ll send her this card for her birthday.

Mustache Hankie and woodgrain coaster from Avril Loreti

Love it!!! πŸ˜‰



Of all the gorgeous items included in this giveaway, I like the ‘lost in a daydream print’ the best! I’ve always had a thing for vintage typewriters, keyboards and anything buttonshaped with letters on it :). The lighting in this picture is so dreamy that it reminds me of how the sun often sets on my own keyboard when I’m typing out my stories. I would love to hang it above my desk for inspiration!

P.S.: It’s funny how a moustachio looks good on anything except on men πŸ™‚

I’m in love with the Ted clusters by Domestic Constructions. To imagine a whole pile of glowing teacups above my studio table just seems so cozy and heavenly!


If I had my druthers I’d also take the “Port Elgin” painting by Rachel Austin. I’ve loved her work for awhile now but that one especially has me eyeing my check book…


I’m having a loogie baby girl in March and she would rock these! They’re so cut…I want a pair too!


I lurv the birds on a wire. Not only do they remind me of my favorite Rogue Wave song, but also when I look at them I feel a little bit peaceful. Priceless.


It was a tie between jill rosenwald Mini bowl in tears design and Wolfie and the Sneak’s educational posters. I mean, i would love to eat my cereal and learn at the same time! Too perfect


I love this little print, it’s absolutely gorgeous πŸ™‚
