Swizzlestix Giveaway-Who Likes Paisley?

Happy Monday Apron Goddesses!! And yes it is a HAPPY Monday since there is a new giveaway on the block from the fresh-retro design company called Swizzlestix.

This week Swizzlestix owner Marcia, has offered TAG women an chance to win this white paisley apron. With the fresh white background and bold paisley shapes you can stir up some fancy martini's for a cocktail party this fall. Do you need an excuse for having a party? I do! Just think you could do a theme party with aprons sporting this one and look fabulous.

Swizzlestix is a design pad that embraces retro-modern culture and lifestyles by creating various paper, tabletop and home decor products. Tantalizing colors and geometric swirls will hypnotize you into a modern world that is inspired by a retro past.

The aprons that Marcia has designed are great for wearing in your kitchen, garden, art studio, or anywhere else you fancy! The three large front pockets are useful for storing everything but the kitchen sink.

All of Swizzlestix textiles are 100% cotton and hand silk screened in India using water based inks. Because they are hand silk screened, they are not mass produced, and are printed in a fair working environment.


Marcia designs all the patterns in her home studio, and all aprons are handmade in San Francisco from her tea towels. She is a graphic designer who has mastered the art of retro with a modern flair!

I must admit a certain penchant for her pillow collection and if I did not already have five pillows on my couch that get thrown all over the house I'd buy some more... They are so cute I could just hug them. They are vibrant, cheerful and sassy. I like sassy. Oh, Oh!! I almost forgot...At Swizzlestix you can find place mats to match your apron too!!

Now to the giveaway part...

To enter in the giveaway for the happy paisley apron pictured above by Swizzlestix visit the online store and come back and leave a comment about your favorite item. This will give you one entry into the random drawing.

For five extra entries, blog about this apron giveaway, leaving your permalink in the comments.

And ten bonus entries are yours if you send in a photo of yourself wearing an apron. It's just that easy. When sending a picture please include the name of your blog and screen name in the e-mail message. I will write up your apron-ography in the weeks to come.

It is so hard to choose!!! I love the white cocktail apron, but I guess I have to say the Blue Barn Boom pillow is so retro and cool.

I have to admit to loving that flower paisley pillow. And if she had that pattern on an apron, that would have been my favorite! She's got some great designs, though.

MissysBaskets said...

I love the pink flowerpop apron it's so mod!

Angela said...

I think I like the White Cocktail Apron the best, well that and all of the paisley ones! I definitely prefer full aprons than just the waist ones, because when I cook/bake I manage to get it all over me! Having the full apron protects more of my clothing! Although, I like the look of the waist ones, because they remind me of vintage '50's housewives. Anyway, that's my 2 cents!

Please enter me in this giveaway!!
