The other day in my Internet wanderings I came across a new-to-me Etsy shop. I was instantly smitten and it would be no exaggeration to say that I'm head over heels for the wonderful handmade poufs from aletafae. The lady behind the handiwork is the talented Aleta Savage and below is but a small sampling of her whimsical offerings.
Really, I could barely contain myself from posting each and every rotund option, but I didn't want to seem a greedy girl (even though I am, clearly). The possibilities are endless...think nursery, family room, playroom, bedroom. In fact, where couldn't you use an extra comfy perch, a place to prop your feet, or a child-friendly floor pillow!
Seriously, they are so darn cute in their plump form and the fabric choices are so fun and modern, I would buy one for aesthetics alone. However, these poufs are just as much about function as form. Aleta says that when her young son is in bed asleep, she loves to jump on her sewing machine and create. With kids, a lot of time is spent playing on the floor and this is when she realized how great it would be to have something comfy to lounge on. She loves these poufs because they are functional and durable, yet super stylish and unique. They are also versatile and can be used as ottomans, coffee tables, pet beds, and the list goes on. All items are handmade by Aleta in her home studio using high-quality materials.
Well I for one need no convincing and even better, Aleta has graciously and generously offered one of her 18" poufs as a giveaway. That's right, one lucky reader will be able to choose a beautiful pouf from Aleta's shop or, alternatively, choose a fabric from Aleta's inventory and she will create a custom pouf for the winner. To enter the giveaway, simply hop on over to Aleta's shop, take a gander at all the gorgeous possibilities, and then leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite. Good luck choosing just one! Of course, be sure to leave your email or contact information in your comment. I'll announce a winner on Friday, July 8th!
For all my friends in the states, have a wonderful holiday weekend!
**Please note, this giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. and international residents as well, however, to minimize shipping costs outside of the U.S., international residents must be willing to stuff the pouf themselves should they be the lucky winner. Also, please leave your contact information in your comment. I would hate not to be able to reach the winner!**
