A Giveaway from Novica

This giveaway is now closed – thanks for entering!

I love a good giveaway and I’ve got one for you guys today! The giveaway is from Novica, an online shop that not only sells beautiful, unique home decor, jewelry, and gifts but also has a pretty amazing mission. Before I share more about their mission, let me give you a peek at some of my favorite Novica finds. They have a huge selection of home decor items, including beautifully embroidered pillow covers,

black and white cotton throws,

handcarved soapstone horse bookends,

brown and ivory striped bone inlay frames,

beautiful celedon jars,

colorful wood boxes,

a large selection of handcrafted hammocks including beautiful brazilian hammocks and colorful rope hammocks, 

and hand carved wood sculptures like this beauty that totally feeds my elephant obsession:

Novica also has a large selection of tote handbags such this striped cotton shoulder bag:

and jewelry – I especially love their selection of beaded bracelets:

But what I love most about Novica is their simple mission – to spread happiness. Novica spreads happiness to artisans around the globe by giving them a platform to sell their work and the freedom to build a sustainable business from their craft. Every product sold on Novica has a portrait and detailed biography of the artist that created it. You’ll be introduced to artists such as Kanda who makes beautiful celadon ceramics and Khun Santiparp who has continued his family’s tradition of creating colorful hand-painted Benjaron pieces:
The happiness spreads to Novica’s customers because there are so many unique handmade products available to buy and each purchase helps to nurture and elevate the craft of global artisans. I love that.

Jump over to Novica {here} and you can read more about their mission and check out their products – you’ll see that there’s a whole lot more to choose from than the small sample of items I shared with you. So…are you ready for the giveaway details?

Kalyana Textiles Giveaway!


You all are in for a treat today because I’ve got a giveaway that you’re going to love!  Whether you’ve been looking for fresh, new bedding for your bedroom or colorful new pillow covers or table linens to bring spring into your home, you’ll find it in Kalyana Textiles‘ gorgeous block printed textiles: Kalyana Textiles is a small company created by super sweet Aparna Glynn who has traveled to India frequently throughout her life and found herself inspired by the rich jewel-toned hues, intricate patterns, soft natural fabrics, and earthen feel of Indian home furnishings.

Unable to find exactly what she was looking for, she launched Kalyana Textiles to offer a collection of linens that combine traditional Indian block printing techniques and designs with a touch […]

Chalkboard Art Giveaway From Lily and Val


This giveaway is now closed – thanks for entering! Happy Wednesday friends! Did you get hit with snow again like we did? I’m happy to say that I’ve got a little something to brighten up your snowy day (or sunny one if you’re so lucky) – a giveaway from Valerie McKeehan’s amazing Etsy shop, Lily & Val. Many of you may have already seen Valerie’s work even if you don’t know it – she made the fun hot cocoa print that was part of the hot chocolate bar on my Christmas Home Tour: Valerie’s passion for art began at an early age when she produced hand-lettered signs for her father’s business. After many years of hand lettering and illustrating, she opened her chalkboard boutique, Lily & Val, on Etsy in 2012. Her whimsical designs are hand lettered and illustrated on a chalkboard surface and then professionally photographed to produce a truly […]

Pillow Cover Giveaway from Comfy Heaven


This giveaway is now closed – thanks for entering! Happy Wednesday all! Since the downhill slide to Friday starts today and it’s only a mere two weeks until Thanksgiving (and the four-day weekend that comes with it!), I say we have a cause for celebration.

Comfy Heaven pillow covers come to us all the way from Sri Lanka, which is off the coast of India for the geography-impaired among us :-). Comfy Heaven is the brainchild of Anita and her mother who create their own designs and run the company based on Fair Trade Principles. All of the pillow covers and other items they sell are handcrafted by women from low income households, providing them with the freedom to […]

Giveaway from Off the Cape!


This giveaway is now closed – thanks for entering! What do you say we start off Wednesday with an awesome giveaway and make this day a good one because Tuesday….well, it wasn’t so hot.

She gave us quite a scare but fortunately my little couch buddy is back home today and doing much better. So I’m happy to be on to a new day and to be starting it off with something fun!Since you and I pretty much love the same things, I have no doubt that you’re going to love this month’s giveaway – it’s from the amazing online shop called Off the Cape…Vintage or Not that I told you a little bit about last week.  Off the Cape is owned and […]
