Second Street East Giveaway

I love when I get to introduce a crazy awesome new sponsor. And today is one of those days. Say a big hello to Second Street East!
I bet that many of you recognize Michelle's shop because I featured one of her pillows in my most recent Etsy Favorites post. Well, she just so happened to see that post, sent me an email, and the rest is history. I'm really so excited to have partnered up with her! At Second Street East, Michelle repurposes vintage Kantha quilts into pillow covers that are simply stunningggg. See!


And as a generous hello, Michelle is giving away ANY pillow cover from her shop!
Yep, you get to choose.
Total badassness.

Here's how you enter:

*Visit Michelle's shop and tell us which pillow should be yours.*

So simple. But maybe you want extra entries.
{Get an extra entry for each thing you do. Be sure to leave a separate comment for each}

*Tell us how awesome Michelle and her shop are*
*Share where you plan to put your new pillow*
*Share this giveaway on FB or Twitter*

This giveaway will end Sunday night. Winner will be chosen at random. Good luck, ya'll!

PS: For those of you wondering, I'd pick this one. Gah!
Luckily (or not, actually) I don't have to choose. Which is your favorite?

Megan Abigail Chandler said...

Personally the Vintage Kantha Quilt Pillow Cover with the soft turquoise background is essential for me. I have been scouring for pillows for my sofa that I recovered two years ago. I currently have one large gorgeous cable knit pillow from PB and I need an accent, I see the turquoise pillow being a sensational compliment to the neutral goldy hue of the sofa and the white of the current pillow. AHHH I need it!

Megan Abigail Chandler said...

So as previously stated I need pillows for my sofa. The turquoise will be a great accent, but what to put on the other end of that sofa? The pillow with the gorgeous black and cream background and minty printed flowers. That will give the sofa the extra pop of color it needs, and I am thrilled at the idea of it not being matchy matchy!

Amanda Hill said...

FB it too :)

April D. said...

Michelle is truly awesome and this is a great idea! shelbymaui(at)hotmail(dot)com

April D. said...
