Dolce Dreams Gratitude Eye Pillows Give Away

I have been working on this project for a while now, and finally have it done. Quite a while ago, first on Carla Coulson's blog, and then from other places, I voraciously read about the shop "merci" in Paris. I really was inspired ...
A) About the incredible awesomeness (southern California comes out in me sometimes) of the store...I cannot wait to go!
B) About the concept of seeing "thank you" everywhere. What a great reminder of a simple thought to keep with you all day.
C) I wanted to give back in some way.

And so, this is what I came up with. All of my eye pillows are hand embroidered on dupioni silk by myself, filled with english lavender buds from Provence, and organic golden flax seeds. They are available for purchase in my Etsy shop to the right.

HOWEVER....I am going to do a giveaway of your choice of colour and language of choice, to be announced next Monday, August 12. Just leave a comment with your favourite colour combination and language preference, and I will use random.org to determine the winner. If you mention this on your blog, leave a second comment to get twice the chance of getting one! I will make the donation to St. Judes Ranch also...

merci, danke, thank you,grazie, gracias, arigato......
Happy Sunday!
