I Won! I Won! Thanks Apt 528

Oh yes, I was super excited the other day. You see friends, I never win any of those fun blog and Facebook give-a-ways. Until now!! And, it was something I actually needed.

The lovely folks over at Apartment 528 were giving a way a little prize pack from Sweet Nature designs, that included a yellow throw pillow cover and a gray/yellow bird kitchen towel. I entered the contest, and the lovely India (yes, that's her name, how cool) contacted me a few days later to let me know I had won!

This worked out perfectly, as I have been in need of a little throw pillow make over. I bought these pillows from the clearance bin of Pier 1 ages ago. They have served their purpose nicely but now that we have our dog, things get stained and tattered. That started happening to my lovely P1 pillows.

A few short days later, this sweet package arrived...

I opened it...

Promptly put the new throw pillow cover to use...

Looks fun and fresh! And the towel, which will add an especially nice touch once I get off my butt and paint my kitchen yellow!

Have you ever won a blog or Facebook give-a-way? What did you win?

Be sure to stop over to Apartment 528 to see all of their cool vintage and vintage inspired wares!


  1. Congrats, Rachael! What a wonderful giveaway. The pillow and the towel are really, really cool. I love anything yellow and gray, but the graphics on those are especially nice.

    I've never won a giveaway, but my SIL and I have had a lot of fun giving some things to blog and FB readers.

  2. Congratulations! And it's all so cute!

    You're living proof there's hope yet. :-) I've never won anything from a blog giveaway, but a friend who just entered the blog world less than a year ago has already won several. She's the luckiest person I know!
