Giveaway: Blueberry Park

Wow, is it already Friday? I've been too busy to keep track of time really, perhaps you feel the same way? In case you were curious, I did not hurt myself or anyone else at the gym the other day, although I did get off of the treadmill prematurely because it was scaring me. I mean, what if you need to stop for a second, the dang thing just keep moving! Pilates class, on the other hand, was just what I needed...I may not be able to jog on a treadmill but I can balance on a ball pretty nicely thank you very much. Who knew?
Now that I've recapped my oh-so-exciting week, let's chat about Blueberry Park. Karen began this UK based company because, "she wanted to create a shopping experience where it was possible to find unique, beautiful and functional products that ooze the charm and originality you can only get with something handmade." I couldn't agree more, charming indeed.
When I first stumbled upon this unique website via Karen's blog
I immediately thought about all of the great gifts I could give (first to myself, second to my friends.)
I never really thought much about paperweights until I saw this, I mean a deer and a bird?!
Karen and I got to chatting and she graciously agreed to give away to one lucky Down and Out Chic reader her choice (I would say "his" too, but I'm not delusional) out of six handmade cushion covers!
If you are are deemed worthy by the giveaway gods to win one of these cushions, you can choose between:
a whale...
an elephant...
a butterfly...
a giraffe...
...a chick
or a seahorse (bottom right)!
These cushions (or "toss pillows" if you're in the U.S.) would be perfect for kids or adults and that's what's so great about them...and the fact that they all have polka dots! I'm not sure I can decide my favorite because they're all pretty amazing.
Here's how to enter:
1) Giveaways are open to Down and Out Chic "followers." This is not because I'm some egomanical blogger, but because these giveaways are a BIG thank you to my readers. If you're new, that's great too!
2) Please visit Blueberry Park and tell me what you like. I'd also love to know which cushion cover you would choose if you happen to win.
3) Leave a comment here! Easy peasy.
Winner will be chosen, next Tuesday, June 16th around 6 pm.
Good luck!

A chick! What a cute chick! I'm designing a first-birthday-party invite for my nephew's birthday and it has a burnt-orange chick just like that announcing the details on it!
I'm also thrilled you found a UK based site to do a giveaway and am on Blueberry Park right now! xx

PS~Erin said...

I'd have a hard time choosing, but it would probably come down to the chick or the giraffe. So cute!

So many neat things on her site. I love the create-your-own-storybook. I think these would make the best gifts! It would be a perfect one to keep on hand, for all the kid bdays that are forever popping up. Such a fun idea!

nicole addison said...

ok, the treadmill comment was hilarious. i too have the same fear haha :) i love the elephant one, such a cute idea. i always love your posts!

Love the seahorse! They're such creepy-cool creatures. And a friend of mine just had a baby, so some of the sweet stuffed bunnies on the site would be perfect for her!

LiLu said...

I can't believe I wasn't a follower, but I am now! And I'm in love with that whale... so cute.

Yaya said...

What an adorable shop! I like the sausage dogs! :)
And the elephant pillow case (bc it's orange....)

Maria said...

I'm with LiLu - great blog, I'm so glad I found it! It is hard to pick a favorite pillow - but I'd probably have to go with the chick, I've had a slight bird obsession lately :)

Anonymous said...

The chick would be my first choice! Loves it! Blueberry Park is one of my favorites, with the exception of your blog, of course! Love Karen and her daughter Ruby's fun, bright, and full oh love projects! Thanks for offering a giveaway!! bartlettw@att.net

Bluebell said...

Got to be the chick - I'm obsessed with anything bird print at the moment!

Bluebell said...

PS - does it have to be just the one item I like? I love the kits, they'd make fab stocking fillers.

Trish said...

Very cool shop!! I love the carnival necklace, but its out of stock :( As for the pillow cover, I'd pick the seahorse. No, the chick. No, the elephant... Ahhhhhhh!!

Kotori said...

Oh that bird pillow has to be mine... surely one time I can win?! :)

Catching up on your blog posts since I've been gone - hope you're having a great Monday!

Hi, Lane said...

Hmm.. I like so many of them! I like seahorse and the whale. But I think the seahorse pulls ahead!! Enter me, pretty please!

Quixsa said...

Yet another fabulous shop featured! I think my favorite would have to be the butterfly but it was a decision made with much consideration- All of the pillows are adorable in their own right.

Tiina of LiviaConcept said...
