only the best for you...a giveaway!





This giveaway has now ended...

Thanks to everyone who entered!


 
Happy Monday, everyone!
I am so excited to announce that my friend Monika of Splendid Willow and I have teamed up to offer you

a Perfect & Splendid Giveaway!

This is my very first giveaway here, and I am so thrilled...

You all know Monika,
for her creativity, originality, and for her beautiful home.


As a native Swede now living in Seattle, Washington, Monika draws from her Scandinavian roots for inspiration and design ideas.  Not only is Monika a talented decor enthusiast; her eye for style extends to fashion as well. If you haven't already, take a look at Monika's newest venture... 



Splendid Willow Avenue, an on-line boutique, carries the high quality and fashionable rain and lifestyle gear of  Danish designer Ilse Jacobsen.


And from this fashionable line, Monika has very generously offered a pair of Ilse Jacobsen rubber boots, considered design icons in Scandinavia!

 These high-end boots are handmade in Europe and are just starting to get into the U.S. market in a serious way. They are stylish, warm (lined with cotton fleece) and designed for long hours of walking in rain and cold weather.


the 'perfect gray' boot?

This Perfect & Splendid Giveaway is for a pair of Ilse Jacobsen's stylish rubber boots,  any model, size and color! (The tall boots retail for $179 + tax.)


three different models to choose from
tall, mid, and short

The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

To enter:

1) Become a follower of A Perfect Gray

2) Go to Splendid Willow Avenue and have fun looking at the boots (and the rest of the gear)!

3) Leave a comment to this post telling us which color you pick. (You can get all models in all colors.) Please make sure you leave your name and e-mail address, especially if your comment does not link to a blog.  

For additional entries (please, make sure to comment for each entry):

a) Tweet about the Perfect & Splendid Giveaway
(1 additional entry).

b) “Like” Splendid Willow's Facebook page
(1 additional entry).

c) Mention it on your blog (2 additional entries).

There is a maximum of five entries per person.

This Perfect & Splendid  Giveaway ends on Monday, March 14th at midnight, Eastern Standard Time.

Our winner will be chosen using Random.org and will be announced on Tuesday, March 15th.



Well, looky here...we caught the lovely Paula of Two Ellie sporting her camel Ilse Jacobsen boots!


Please join me in thanking Monika for...  




Good luck, everyone!

These boots look amazing! Followed this giveaway over from Splendid Willow, but I'm now following you on Friend Connect. I blogged about the giveaway too at things never done, my personal inspiration blog.

Hmmm, if I had to choose...this is tough! Out of the ones on Splendid Willow Avenue, I'd have to choose the black tall. No, black short...nooo, is there army green?! I'll be able to choose if I'm randomly selected, promise.
