FOR THE HOME: catstudio Hand Embroidered Pillow

About This Giveaway:

This pillow is entirely HAND embroidered on light tea-colored 100% organic cotton. Amazingly it can take up to one week to embroider one pillow! It is also unique in nature since each artisan incorporates a certain flair and signature to his/her work. Accented with black velvet piping.

Why We Love It:

Nothing celebrates our local community quite as beautifully as our very own catstudios (based out of Petaluma). The pride in craftsmanship, artistry, and design are among the many reasons a Cat Studio design is the first thing we look for when it comes to gift giving. The winner of this giveaway will be able to choose a custom design: Sonoma or Napa!

FOR WORK: Vaya Tyffyn Lunch Box

About this product: 

Vaya Tyffyn is a lunchbox designed to ensure that you enjoy your meal at its freshest. Made from food-grade stainless steel, Vaya Tyffyn uses vacuum insulation technology to keep your food the way you pack it, warm or cold. 

Why we love it:

The Vaya Tyffyn lunch box is well-made, beautiful, and practical. We adore multi-function items, so we are really excited about the lunch bag that doubles as  place mat (perfect for those days when you want to take lunch outside). It’s clear that every element of this product was well-thought out, from the easy to open but sturdy closures, to the beautiful copper plated oval containers. 

JEWELRY: Rose Gold Love Necklace

About This Giveaway

This necklace will be the most versatile piece in your jewelry box. Not only is this bolo adjustable, it’s also reversible! Slide the pave’ crystal centerpiece up or down along the delicate chain to wear as a choker, Y necklace or a long fashion statement. Transform the look from glitzy to casual by flipping the necklace over to reveal the inspirational word Love. Adjustable from short up to 25″, perfect for layering. Pale rose gold plating.

Why We Love It:

This necklace has our hearts! We personally love the old country style bolo necktie, and this necklace plays perfect homage to the inspiration, while settling into a decidedly feminine design. We love that the necklace can be worn two ways, facing “love” forward is a perfect daytime style, and simply turning the crystals outward makes a glittery addition to any upcoming date-night.
