rockstar giveaway! (closed)

Today we have a giveaway for you from one of my favorite people…. my mother! and her new shop, Pillows by Poppy™! My mom made a few pillows for Eleanor’s nursery earlier this summer and after seeing them and persuading her all summer long, we finally got her to open up a shop! The detail work on these pillows are out of this world. I can’t believe the creativity and time that go into each one. I am so proud of her and excited to share her shop with you!!
Pillows by Poppy™ is giving away a pillow of your choice to 2 lucky readers! Click here to see all of the pillow choices. Each pillow is hand sewn, one at a time by my mother (some take her hours to complete!)
(Here are my two favorites in Eleanor’s nursery.)

I wanted to include these two little quotes from my mom shop because I feel they are so special:
Pillows by Poppy™ celebrates all that is good at home. Each pillow is unique in beauty and individuality. They are expressed in varied designs, like different people from different homes. Poppy wants each pillow to remind us of our youth and those simple days of childlike faith when a bandage and kiss would take the away the hurt of an ‘owie.’ Poppy maintains that these pillows represent homes, not houses. She truly believes a home is a place one wants to return to. It is about family, birthday cake, and feeling safe. It is the laboratory for learning and practicing fundamental principles and useful life skills. Indeed, it is the best place on earth to learn charity.
“And what about those frayed, raw edges on Pillows by Poppy™? Poppy feels those frayed edges are kind of like us… imperfect people living in imperfect homes. Mistakes are made and apologies are expressed. Home is a place from where we can start all over again and try to do better next time.”

To enter to win a pillow of your choice, please visit Pillows by Poppy™ and leave a comment below telling me which pillow you would choose. The winners will be drawn and announced this coming Friday.

Good luck!

    Oh my gosh these are the most darling things I have ever seen! I would choose the Tipi or Cherry Lane because I've slept in one (a Tipi) and all my childhood I lived on that street (It was really "Sherry lane" but I don't hear well and so I told all my friends it was Cherry Lane, because that's what I thought it was for so long lol).
    Love these!
