Tuesday Trends: It’s Time for a Giveaway!

Once I hit 250 followers, I promised y’all I’d have another great giveaway.  Well, this one definitely won’t disappoint.  I found Lynn’s Etsy shop, LWhelan Designs, about a month ago and fell in love with all of her Lilly-inspired designs.  She takes Lilly Pulitzer fabrics and crafts things from them, from coozies to coasters, stationery to hair accessories.  You’ll love it all!

Here are just a few of the preppy items she carries in her Etsy shop…

“Drink cozies are available in 2 sizes and make great hostess gifts, teacher gifts, bridesmaid gifts and more.  The outside is a colorful (can’t be missed!) Lilly Pulitzer butterfly and floral pattern and the inside a pretty pink and white polka dot print. The closure is velcro so you get a nice grip, and it is insulated to help keep your drink cold and your hands warm!”

I’d love to flaunt this little accessory at my next backyard barbecue!

“What a great addition to any Lilly Lover’s home decor.  This is a new addition to my series of Lilly Pulitzer Wall Decor. Each one is an original, one-of-a-kind piece (no printed copies here!). The pants are each made from authentic Lilly fabrics which have been handcut from one of my original hand drawn pants patterns. I then embellish each one with the perfect combination of trimmings. The handmade pants are then mounted on a heavyweight, quality piece of acid free cardstock which also gets a bit of embellishing, finishing it off with just the right amount of detail.  The finished piece measures 8 inches by 10 inches and will fit right in an 8×10 photo frame. Or, if you prefer, take it to your local frame shop for a custom mat and frame.”

How cool would this be, to have such an original piece of Lilly art in your home?  And it’s such a great price too!  Lynn also does custom orders, so I’m sure if you have a shift dress or something else you’d like her to make, she’d love to create it for your home!

“These eco-friendly blooms are one of my favorite items to make. I recycle the bits and pieces left behind from my scarves and aprons, carefully choosing each combination. It’s so fun to watch the blossom come to life after forming, shaping and adding the button toppings.”

I love all of the layers of pretty, bright, Lilly fabric.  And the best part?  It’s so versatile.  It would look so cute worn on a denim jacket or in your hair.
“Your drinks will just taste better when using an adorable Lilly coaster. I have blended together a great combo of Lilly blues and greens to make this set of 2 coasters. One for you and one for a guest, ooh la la.  The coasters each measure approximately 4 inches square and are backed with a preppy blue and white stripe. They are made with cotton batting for absorption and will have a label on the reverse side. They will come shipped with a nice wrapper with my shop name and care instructions enclosed in a clear cello bag. What a perfect gift!  Great gift for a graduate, Mother’s Day, a birthday, a hostess gift… just think about it, what wouldn’t be the perfect time to give such a sweet gift!”

I’d love to have these sweet little coasters out, the next time the girlfriends visit.
How cute are all of LWhelan Designs‘ Lilly-inspired goodies?  Head on over to see what else Lynn has created.  She is always creating new, fun items. 
Now, on to the good part, the GIVEAWAY!  Lynn has so graciously decided to giveaway one of her preppy, stylish aprons.  How pretty is this apron?  I’m not a big cook, but I’d love to wear this in the kitchen, and maybe, just maybe, it would get me motivated to create some fun dishes in the kitchen too.  And even if it doesn’t, I’d still sure look cute trying.  πŸ™‚

Here’s how to enter:

1 Entry:  Become a follower (or let me know you already are)

Extra Entry:  “Like” LWhelanDesigns on Facebook
Extra Entry:  Grab my button (or let me know you already have it)

Extra Entry:  Blog about the giveaway on your blog
Extra Entry:  Tweet about the giveaway (make sure to tell me your name on Twitter)
Extra Entry:  Add my giveaway to your sidebar
Extra Entry:  Leave a comment and give Lynn an idea of what she should create for her Etsy shop

An extra entry each for every time someone refers you in their comments, about how they found out about the giveaway (I’ll keep track of this.).  Endless entries!

Please let me know in your comments, how many entries you get.  The easiest way would be to list it on your comments, 1., 2., 3., etc.  That would help organize it for me a great deal.  There are lots of ways to get extra entries.  The giveaway will end on Sunday, July 11th, at 11:59pm.  I’ll choose a winner on Monday, July 12th, and announce the winner the next day on Tuesday’s post.  You have two weeks to enter.

Thanks so much for reading, and good luck, y’all!
