Mini Giveaway Extravaganza

The Whimiscal Wife recently hit and passed 500 likes in the last month. It was a bit of an exciting milestone for me and my little blog. So in honour of this achievement I wanted to celebrate and host a Mini Giveaway Extravaganza here to thank you my readers for reaching this milestone.

I got in touch with a few previous guests on the blog to see if they would be interested in being part of the giveaway. I have three wonderful prizes on offer today from three very talented ladies.

The first guest that is popping back to offer a wonderful giveaway is Dotti from Paloma Le Sage. I featured Dottie and her gorgeous designs back in 2011 on my segment Feature Friday. If you did not meet Dotti in my last post I would love for her to tell you a little bit about herself and what she is putting up to giveaway......

Paloma Le Sage is the artist & designer behind the label. 
I create original limited edition hand printed fabrics. 
Linen felt and cottons are printed with hand mixed aqua inks.
My current range includes feature cushions journal covers & tea towels. 
I am is passionate about being involved in the entire creative process from the initial design of the ‘product’ the drawing of the image making the silk screens cutting and printing the fabric.
 Finally the stitching and assemblage of the pouches & journal covers. "I am always excited to see a customer pick up an item and smile."
 I am addicted to printing. The spontaneity and experimental possibilities of hand printing excite & motivate me. I love to work in my studio which can be opened up to allow the breeze and the bird songs to keep me company. I source water based inks and am passionate about reusing and re purposing. I have recently opened my own little Gift and Home wares Boutique.
Paloma Le Sage Hand printed  is now open Fri sat Sun 10 ~ 5 at beautiful Stanwell Park just south of Sydney.
I am also at the Eveleigh Artisan Market in Sydney the 1st Sunday of each month.

You can visit Dotti at her website: Paloma Le Sage or pop in and say hi to her on Facebook.

The second lovely talented lady to generously donate a prize is Roslyn from Ken & Mona. She formerly ran Tommy & Tuppence which was featured here on the blog this time last year in one of my Feature Friday segments. I will let Roslyn tell you a little about herself and her new business venture.

Hi, I'm Roslyn and the proud owner of Ken and Mona - Retro Revived. I restore and paint on retro wooden bowls. Most of the bowls I use are from the 60's and 70's and some of them are quite rare today. I love choosing the colours and design for each bowl and giving them a new lease on life. The bowls make beautiful gifts as they are all original, with no one piece ever being the same. They are used purely for decorative purposes and the flat leaf trays look great as a wall hanging. I believe we all need to be more conscious of our buying decisions and to restore, recycle, reuse. I'm working on another housewares range with this in mind, so to keep up with everything happening over at Ken and Mona join me at -
