Favorite Things: Decorative Instincts GIVE-AWAY

Nothing is better than finding a great ETSY seller. I could spend hours on there just searching and searching filling up a cart of all the items on my wish list.


A couple of months ago I had a wonderful transaction with etsy seller Merle of Decorative Instincts. I had ordered a pillow from her and when it arrived it seemed to have a small defect. I’m certain no one else would have  noticed but me. I emailed her and immediately she not only sent me brand new one, but threw in a little surprise as well. What wonderful customer service!


Her shop is filled with pillows in all of our favorite designer fabrics, aprons that I would wear in a heartbeat, but never cook in, in order to keep them clean and amazing desk accessories including stylish magazine holders in KWID imperial trellis!


Since I’m an avid list writer I knew exactly what I wanted to give-away from Merle’s shop. A large decorative clipboard,which I would use to keep all my client projects in order. I have a small one myself that I use in my kitchen to save all of my recipes.



You can choose from the following patterns:


1: Chenonceau Charcoal

2: Harlem Toile Yellow

3: Raspberry Imperial Trellis

4: Wild Flora Lime/Purple

5: Wild Flora Brown/Gold

6: Blue Carnation

I keep going back and forth between the Chenonceau Charcoal and the Harlem Toile!

I've been pretty obsessed with bird silhouettes lately, so I'm going to go with the Chenonceau Charcoal.
