Limited Edition Summer Totes {Giveaway}

*Update* Congrats to Bashtree and Jaden Paige! You girls just won exclusive summer totes!!

Today's giveaway is a first for me!

It's my first international giveaway and I'm feeling very worldly just typing the word international.

See the Woods is a funky, fun online store and the creator lives in Ireland. She makes gorgeous bags and totes and was kind enough to design a very limited edition bag for today's contest.

This bag defines summer to me:


I love the vibrant colors and the shape of the bag.  See the Woods is giving away TWO of these summer totes today. They retail for 20 pounds (see, I'm having that international feeling again) which is about $33.00. 

Visit her shop and tell me what else you like.


This giveaway closes on Thursday (international shipping is okay too).

P.S. I had never heard of folksy, but it looks similar to Etsy. And I think I may be in trouble, internationally speaking.

That is such a cute tote! Would be perfect for hauling around all the library books I check out for the kids I babysit!!

I liked all of her "felt creatures" - I think the kids would have a lot of fun with them! (Personally, the chicks and the kitty cat were my favorites!! :} )

Jingle said...

My favorite item is Sig the felt amoeba! I kinda love him, actually.

Sharon said...

Wow! Her stuff is great! The felt creatures are so cute and I love all the bags she has. :-) I'm sure today won't be my last stop at her site.

Good grief! Another store I have to bookmark for Christmas or Birthday use. I think the Q Bee Chicks are very fun, but I really like the embroidered bag as well and all the amoebas are cute...that Leaf Print Shopper though...I may need that now.

Brooke said...

Ooooh! I like so many of her things! The flower&leaf tote bag, the sage butterfly bag, the pincushions(!!!), stitch markers and her jewelry... haha like I said, I love it all. I'm going to have to try and come down with amnesia when it comes to this new site... I already have an etsy shop... I don't think my bankbook can handle this new trendy site!

Chasity said...

OK, I have to confess...I have a very nerd like attraction to any of the amoebas. No wonder my husband reminds me occasionally of my nerd status. What a great giveaway, thanks. :)

theothermousie said...

I REALLY like the red pendant necklace, I am always drawn to reds, but yet I don't own any red. IF I bought that necklace I would definitely find something to go with it. I wish I knew how to convert the money... I don't know how much 12 pounds is... hee hee. Maybe THAT is a good thing, then I won't be tempted to over buy!!

Jane Anne said...

The Ruby Red Gathered Urn bag is so much fun! I'd love it... but I'd really just love to win the bag you are giving away. Thanks for the chance to win!
