My Very First Tangible Give-Away: Gorgeous Ampersand Cushion Cover By Auntie Cookie!

OK..... very, very soon (hopefully), I'll be getting my small but fab online shop for cushion covers up and running!!

Yes, that's right.... a shop just for cushion covers. Oh how I love them!

In fact, I've decided I can even call myself a Cushionista!!

Nothing else can change the look of a room so fast, or add a punch of colour or a 'design dollop' like a cushion can. What fabulous accessories are to an outfit, cushions are to a room.

So, to celebrate I'm going to give away one of the cushion covers I'll be stocking in my teeny yet tre gorgeous shop.

About half the covers I'll be stocking have been designed by myself (and then made by someone far better on a sewing machine than me), but, the other half are from lovely friends who already make creating one-of-a-kind cushion covers their business.

The cover I'm giving away this week is a Limited Edition screen printed cover by the wonderful Melbourne designer Shannon Lamden of Auntie Cookie fame. This is a striking ampersand print cover, with a white ampersand symbol printed on a black linen background. The back of the cushion is indigo denim, and features an envelope closure. The cover's size is 40 cm x 40 cm (16 x 16 inches).

When my package of stock arrived from Shannon last week I was super excited to get out the covers and ogle them in all their glory - magnifique! So sad I have to put them all away in the stock cupboard.

To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below saying hi!! I'd also love it if you'd become a follower... there'll be more give-aways coming along soon, so you'll be in the know then.

It's Tuesday today in Aus, and I'll draw the winner next Sunday, the 20th of June, after 6.00pm, and post the results straight after.

Good luck fellow cushionistas!
