Gypsy Forest {giveaway}

This weekend’s giveaway is from Stephinie of Gypsy Forest Handmade.  You may know Stephinie from her blog where she shares bits and pieces of life with her family of six.  In her Gypsy Forest shop she offers beautifully crafted organic quilts, hand-dyed play silks (my family’s favorites!) & other artful bits.

“Hello again! I’m so happy to be hosting a giveaway here in Ginny’s space. A lot has changed since the last time we visited here. This spring our family made a huge move from the deep south of Louisiana to our much loved New England. We are really loving our new home in Massachusetts, especially this time of year as the woods outside our house turn bright shades of yellow and orange. After six months we’re mostly unpacked, we’ve added some new critters to the family, and we’re ready to renovate our 1970’s yellow bathroom!”

“As for shop news, I am still sewing up my heirloom crafted quilts and reversible aprons. I’ve extended the line of playsilk colors available and now offer ten basic colors, multi-colored silk canopies, and the very popular limited edition multi-color playsilks too.”

“The shop has some fun new items in it as well! I began sewing up silk flag banners this summer. I currently have three different colors in the shop and will be adding two new styles later this month. I’ve also been working on some delicious luxury weight silk & organic fair-trade flannel blankets, also due into the shop later this month. If you’d like to know about current shop news or just want to join the fun conversation, do join us on facebook or swing by the blog.”

Stephinie is giving to one Small Things Reader a set of ten play-silks in all the basic colors valued at $78.  She would also like to offer 15% off orders of $40 or more through October 15th.  (It’s not too early to be thinking about Christmas and holiday gifts!)  Use the code SMALLTHINGS15 at checkout to receive the discount.
