Good morning friends! Yesterday I told you I have an amazing giveaway, so here goes!
Threads Remembered is a company that my Aunt Teresa (my aunt who threw me that beautiful shower 2 weeks ago) and my cousin Sarah are starting. Threads Remembered is a service that turns old clothing into keepsakes in the form of pillows.
Now Ryan and I aren't having a ring bearer, but I think that these would make the most perfect ring bearer pillows. I know that all over blog land, women are trying to infuse elements of loved ones into their wedding, and this is just a brilliant way to do it. You could have a pillow made out of your mom or grandma's wedding dress, or out of your dad's button down shirt, or your great grandmother's handkerchief...the possibilities are endless. So whenever Aunt Teresa and Sarah mentioned this company they were starting, I instantly thought of you lovely readers! Enough talk, here are some examples of pillows they've made:
This is a scarf that was turned into a pillow.
My aunt said that the pillow in the upper right hand corner was a very old handkerchief.
This was a bridesmaid's dress turned into a pillow....this one is my favorite, what they did with the buttons is so clever!
My aunt made pillows out of my grandpa's shirts that looked just like this.
Even if you're already married, a keepsake like this would be great around the house...I'm thinking reading nook.
Keep in mind that these pictures are only suggestions, let your imagination run wild. I'd love to see one made out of ties.
So, my aunt and my cousin are offering to give away a pillow valued from $45-$55 to you lovely ladies (and gents?). Just to give you an example of price, the button up shirt pillow costs $50, the dress pillow runs $60 and the scarf or handkerchief pillow is $45.
You can view the full look book here (it takes just a second to load).
Here's how to enter:
--Leave me a comment and tell me what kind a pillow you would have made if you win!
--For an additional entry, blog about this giveaway and post a comment with the link telling me what kind of a pillow you would like to have made
--Tweet about Threads Remembered and the giveaway for another entry (let me know you tweeted...Twitter scares the crap out of me, but Pugs and I tweet for our other blog and she's easing me into it!)
You have until Friday at midnight (central time) to enter, and I'll assign numbers to entries and pick a winner with that random number thing.
Good luck, and if you have any questions let me know! You can contact Threads Remembered at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
