ETA October 10, 2011: Congratulations to our Fall Giveaway winner, Joanna Z!
Joanna said, “I love the smell of ripe apples on the trees, the crisp, cool mornings, and pumpkins showing up at every grocery store, every produce stand, and on just about every front porch.”
Thanks to all who entered for your fabulous fall stories!
Colorful leaves, warm beverages, new fashion, and Halloween. What’s not to love about fall? To celebrate our admiration for autumn, we’re giving away some of our favorite fall goods! Read on to find out how you can win.
Vawn and Mike Gray aren’t novices when it comes to creating kiln-formed glass art. In fact, they developed their own process to turn old glass bottles into fused-glass masterpieces using an energy efficient, computer-controlled oven.
“When Uncommon Goods asked if we could create an exclusive Night Owl nightlight design in Reborn Glass, without a second thought, we said, ‘of course’,” says Vawn. “Here in Cape Coral, Florida we are proud to host one of the strongest populations of the highly protected Burrowing Owl, a pint sized, 9-inch bird who makes their nest underground rather than in trees. Our neighborhood is home to several active burrows and the fun thing with these guys is that they are active during the day and provide loads of comical, creative inspiration.”
Although Burrowing Owls are active by day, the Grays creation is a ‘Night Owl,’ appropriate for a nightlight. “With that in mind further inspiration was drawn from one of my favorite characters, Owl, from Winnie The Pooh collection of films,” Vawn explains. “For us, it was all about the eyes—we literally build each owl around the eyes keeping them bright and focal. Broken beer, wine, vodka, and whiskey bottles provide the color pallet for this UncommonGoods exclusive autumn design.”
Owls are quite lovely, so while we’re on the subject of beautiful wildlife, we’re also going to give away one of our brand new Recycled Cotton Fox “Stole” scarves.
This clever, and cruelty-free, alternative to fur is cute, cuddly and fashionable. We’re giving away the autumn-toned fox, a fall fashion must, but these critter-themed scarves are also available for purchase in Raccoon, Skunk, and Mink.
These adorable animals will keep you warm and toasty on the go, but fall is also about getting cozy indoors. We’re making comfort a little easier by giving away Teas of Encouragement.
These calming teas, Live Forever Tea, an antioxidant packed organic green tea and jasmine blend, and Instant Karma Tea, containing organic roobios and warming coconut chai, are the perfect companion to a good book or a classic movie at home on a rainy fall afternoon.
