Marimekko Giveaway

I'm giving back!


I have a super-cute Marimekko cushion to give to one of my lovely readers. It is made from Mini-Unikko fabric designed by Maija Isola and Kristina Isola  - which is a charming take on the iconic 1964 Marimekko Unikko design.

My uber-talented friend Melissa (the silent daughter) from Seamstress and The Daughters made this beauty from fabric I had left over from a previous project. So, it is like eco-friendly too!

It is gorgeous and I know you want it.

This is what you have to do to be in the running:

1. You must leave a comment on this post between Sunday 28 February 2010 ending Sunday 7 March 2010 at 9 pm (AEST or Brisbane time).

2. If you are super-duper keen and want to advertise my giveaway on your own blog, you get a second entry (you need to tell me though, because my sixth sense is a bit dodgy).

3. The competition is also open to everyone and I'm happy to post overseas.

4. I will announce the winner on Monday 8 March 2010.

Your odds of winning this are extremely high and it would be madness not to enter (sorry for the hyperbole).

So, a big thank-you goes to Melissa for helping me with Fun and VJs first ever giveaway.

If you are a Brisbane dweller, Seamstress and the Daughters will be at the BrisStyle Indie Designers Markets on Saturday 6 March 2010 at St Augustine's Church, Racecourse Road, Hamilton. Well worth the effort of going if you like unique hand-crafted items.

Seamstress and the Daughters have really cool stuff such as, my favourite, the iGranny.

If I had an iPhone and was still working in PR (yep, my previous life), I would buy this. If you can't wait until Saturday, go here.

    have a beautiful day!

  10. cool, count me in too! beautiful pillow, thanks heaps for the draw!

  11. The iGranny reminds me of how my ipod is currently in a glove. I call it a digit-al storage device.
    The pillow looks like it'll be super-wonderful. Consider this post my super-lucky-rabbits foot.

  12. Okay, glad I came and checked out this post. Definitely enter me please!

  13. Great site!! Yes please, enter me for the competition, what a fantastic prize. All my fingers and toes are crossed!

  14. Given how much I love Marimekko, the fact that I don't have anything in this signature fabric is insane. It's time to correct that, I think!

    Big Hugs ~ Teresa

  16. hi from canada
    i think the word madness has scared many . i just simply love that pillow. it rocks.
    i linked here thru mise, and glad i did. i like the lamps you got. i have to agree...even tho the base IS less sexy, i would have made the same sacrifice in your shoes.

  17. Well you could knock me down with a feather!! Luckily you told me. I must have tripped off before my comment was accepted and I would have hated to have missed your give away. I LOVE THAT PILLOW!! Phew - am I in for the draw now??

  18. New to the blog and loving it. Count me in for the giveaway!

  19. I would love to enter the giveaway comp - I ADORE Marimekko and was super-spoiled last year to have a chance to visit the Marimekko shop in Helsinki! I made my poor husband sit on the cute black-and-white couches for over an hour while I inspected every item in the shop individually... Thank-you for your lovely blog!

  20. This fabric makes me happy, just to look at it. I've also seen this fabric stretched over a rectangular canvas and it looks just fantastic. Aren't you lovely and generous to make this a giveaway! Meredy xo.

  21. Marimekko warms my heart! my world is a brighter place with colours & flowers & Marimekko! Thanks for the chance to win this adorable cushion :)
