Wicked Cool Giveaway: Claflin, Thayer & Co.

Um, are these accessories not the coolest you’ve ever seen? They’re brought to you by Liz Thayer, the creative mind and nimble fingers behind Clafin, Thayer & Co. in Oakland, California. Liz is very kindly offering this fabulous pink and black cosmetics bag in her signature ‘Painted Ikat’ print—free to one lucky reader! You know the drill: pop over to her shop, leave a comment telling me your favourite item, and on Thursday night I’ll randomly select a winner.

I can’t get enough of these incredibly vivid patterns and colors, which Liz paints and sews by hand. The wee coin purses would be perfect for getting my handbag organized—no way would that vivid pink get lost in the seemingly bottomless depths of my purse! And these acid bright pillows would bring such fun personality to an otherwise neutral room.

Liz’s talents extend to the world of leather as well! She uses recycled materials from pre-loved leather clothing, so each item has that butter soft texture that only time and love can achieve. Check out the exposed zipper on this fabulous clutch; it adds the perfect touch of rocker edge to the bag’s clean and streamlined shape.

Liz also has an addictively stylish blog with her favourite fashion finds, the inspirations and processes behind her designs, and special sneak peeks of her works in progress (I want one of these shirts!). I absolutely adore this fierce studded pouch—though frankly they’re all stunning. Don’t you want to collect all four?

Don’t forget: leave a comment to be entered in the draw for one of Liz’s amazing hand painted cosmetics bags! It’s the perfect antidote to a post-daylight savings Monday 🙂

P.S. Congrats to Grace at Poetic Home on winning the Pink Lemonade necklace from last week’s JessLC giveaway. See the rest of the winners here, and even if you didn’t get lucky in the giveaway you can take advantage of JessLC‘s free shipping for the rest of the week!

P.P.S. Thanks a bunch to This Is Glamorous for randomly drawing me as the winner of these awesome earrings, and to Brooke at Velvet and Linen for selecting me to receive a copy of Swedish Interiors. I never win anything, so I’m feeling pretty special right now!
