We all must scroll past about 100 giveaways a day on Instagram. There are very few that I actually take part in. Unless I really love the shops that are involved. Well that was the case with this recent giveaway that I entered. It was hosted by two of my favorite Insta mamas, @Jacquelinesarahh and @senaenelson, whom I just adore. (They really are the sweetest with the most adorable babes) and the prizes were all incredibly beautiful and matched my home decor perfectly. Since I have been working to finish up my living room (among many other areas of my house) I decided it couldn’t hurt. I never expected to win so when I opened my Instagram to that announcement I nearly jumped through my ceiling.
As the packages started rolling in last week I was even more blown away by the quality of each item. Everything being handcrafted ethically and locally in California. You all know that I am big on supporting Small Shops!
I have spent the past few days rearranging each item trying to decide where I want each piece to be placed. The task made harder by the fact that my Christmas tree is taking up a good portion of my wall space at the moment. But I decided to snap a few photos anyway.
Odessa & Sons Ill start with something that ended up being for our youngest babe. When I saw that I would be receiving indigo shibori dyed pillow cases from Odessa & Sons, I was over the moon. We are in the process of switching around our kids bedrooms. Our 4 year old is getting a “big boy bedroom” for Christmas which means , by default, our youngest will now have his own room and a big boy bed! I had already chosen indigo shibori bedding for him before this giveaway even existed so that should explain my excitement. All products from Odessa & Sons are hand dyed, using natural dyes , in San Diego, Ca. Check out more hand dyed goods on their website HERE or follow on Instagram
Radical Soul Collective This layered tassel and driftwood wall hanging is by Radical Soul Collective and I am basically in love. The craftsmanship of this piece is so beautiful, creative and unique. This look so dreamy hanging in my living room. Its the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. Its simple but still makesI a big enough statement to stand on its own. Check out their Etsy shop and Instagram
Sunday Makers I am obsessed with mud cloth and also throw pillows. Put them together and you’ve made me the happiest woman on earth. Its almost as if Sunday Makers knew exactly what I needed when they sent me this pillow. I currently have all cream colored pillows on my couch but black…. its just too good! I have been eyeballing black mud cloth pillows for awhile so this beauty came at just the right time! Merry Christmas to me!! All items by Sunday Makers are made from locally and ethically sourced textiles in Oakland, Ca. Check them out on Instagram
Madre Handmade This adorable little banner has been floating around my house because I love it so much and can’t decide where it needs to stay. So for now it may just have a new home every day! Including my Christmas tree. This piece speaks for itself. The message is so sweet, as are all of the banners made by Madre Handmade. I actually had a hard time choosing one because I kind of want them all. These banners are handmade by a sweet mama of 3 in Ramona, Ca. You Can find more of her work on her Etsy Shop and her Instagram
Lumitory The last item just makes me so very happy. For the longest time our walls were bare! I mean literally nothing on them. One because we were having trouble agreeing on art or images we both loved and two because I am terrible about getting our pictures printed. Finally I found these simple black and white cactus prints at hobby lobby so that was a start. Then I received this amazing poster from Lumitory which couldn’t have matched more perfectly. Its simple and just fits the vibe of our home. Check out their website and instagram !!
