October Giveaway - Shabby Chic Treats!

17/10/2012 - Matt Chatterley

Shabby Chic Treats - add a little colour to your Autumn!

Shabby Chic Treats - BullAs you may have guessed, we're trying to hold off talking about Christmas (oops, I said it!) for just a little longer - however, this month's lovely sponsor might come in very useful if you're keen to buy handmade this year.

While we normally feature a crafter/maker, this month we're featuring someone who doesn't necessarily make all her stock herself, but nonetheless has an obvious passion for handmade (and beautiful) things - and is hard at work creating a fantastic online shop for others who feel the same.

It's something we definitely agree with - and the idea of "boutique" online shops sitting amidst the larger options out there appeals a lot, perhaps because it meshes better with the handmade ethos in some ways.

The giveaway might be a bit different, but the rules are just the same: to enter, visit our sponsor's link (at the end of the post) and post a comment here, telling us which item(s) in their shop tempt you most. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway will close at midnight on Wednesday 24th October 2012.

Shabby Chic Treats - Birdie PS. We are in dire need of sponsors for next year so if you're interested, please get in touch!

Here's Kirsty from Shabby Chic Treats!

I created Shabby Chic Treats out of my love for all things scrumptious and luscious.

The Shabby Chic Treat's ethos is to showcase as much home-grown talent as possible and to cater for all budgets.

The home-grown talent is certainly eye-catching and ranges from the cheeky highland cows, hand-crafted on the Isle of Skye to the beautiful Scottie dog cushions hand-made in Scotland.

Shabby Chic Treats - Rose Cushion Some other treats to tempt you include lovely polka dot metal bird hooks and stunning bird cage tea-light holders. If purses or laptop sleeves are your thing, there is a beautiful range of Disaster Design treats with new lines added this week.

The October giveaway

The October treat giveaway is a beautiful hand-made vintage rose cushion measuring 16” square.
