Owing to dealing with a minor toddler illness, the announcement of today’s Orla Kiely pear bag giveaway is slightly delayed. Apols.
A huge thanks to all of you who entered the giveaway – there are some truly fantastic comments and it’s great to know that there are so many pear fans out there. I’m only sorry I do not have one of these spectacular bags for each and every one of you.
So, without further ado, I am pleased to announce that the spinning selection process (using a conference pear and a Newgate clock on a Gordon Russell table, in case anyone is interested – see above) resulted in the pear stalk pointing to the eighth minute of the hour on the clock face (see below).
And correspondingly, comment number 8 was from mollyandtheprincess, whose blog (see hyperlink to the left) is testament to the fact that she enjoys “finding beauty wherever we go”. Congrats all round. One Orla Kiely jute pear bag is in the post.
Watch this space for future giveaways and random owl and pear bloggage. And thanks again for taking the time to enter the giveaway.
Well it wouldn’t be a proper pear blog if I didn’t at least include one reference to Orla‘s masterpiece of a print. I could include photos of a myriad of her marvellous pear products – bags, purses, notepads, towels – but one my most coveted items of all time would have to be this chair. In my mind, I sit in this chair in my study, possibly with a copy of Slightly Foxed in one hand, and the other reaching for a cup of earl grey that is poised elegantly on a Gordon Russell side table. However, as I type this post out now, I note the conspicuous absence of such a stylish scenario: I am covered in porridge (typing is getting sticky) and the only chair in sight is the baby’s. Pear chair, one day you will be mine…
