[Lovely] Thing I'm giving away.

lovely happy things

I shared about some of my favorite lovely things a while back, and over time have become friends with the charming designer and owner, Ruthanne of Eclectic Whatnot (I found while searching etsy one day, and bought my camera strap, in Sea Breeze.)

Her straps are for dslR cameras, but she also has flouncy aprons and will do custom orders, if you'd like.


Win. I'm giving away a Lemon Drop Ruffled Camera Strap Cover [$35]. If you'd like to be entered to win, please visit Eclectic Whatnot and leave a comment here telling me your favorite of all her items.

I'll choose one winner at random after tomorrow (Tuesday, 11:59 pm).

This giveaway is open to winners in the US and Canada. I've received no compensation or product for this post. It's something I love that I wanted to share with you.

Find Eclectic Whatnot on Twitter and Facebook.

Oh, and me, too. :)


Congrats to winner DesireeFawn!

  44. These camera straps are awesome! We purchased a new dslr camera before the holidays and it was supposed to me mine, but my husband has taken it over. I think one of these straps would help me reclaim it! The Lemon Drop would be great because the colors are still neutral.

  68. I was JUST looking on Etsy for cute camera straps! I'm so glad you featured your beautiful strap and where I can get one. And by the way, that picture is truly one of my favorites....although I know I've said that a lot.

    I just wanted to say hi. Happy summer to you and yours, my friend.

    ReplyDelete

  75. ooohhhh so pretty! I love the Seabreeze - Ruffled, dSLR Camera Strap Cover...I'm a sucker for anything turquoise! But I gotta say I think I love the lemon drop one maybe just a teensy bit better!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I automatically went for the french roast camera strap- but then decided to go out of my comfort level, cause the whole ruffle thing is way out of it anyway, so think the chocolate truffle would be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Love the chocolate truffle camera strap. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. I LOVE the 'Mint Julep', however I would actually need to get a dSLR camera first.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh, and seeing as how I'm a horrific cook, and avoid the kitchen whenever possible, I probably won't be needing an apron any time soon ;) Do people really wear aprons?!?!

    ReplyDelete

  84. I have tried twice to post a comment and it doesn't seem to be working so I apologize If a few duplicates pop up in an hour. I honestly love the lemon drop strap. So fun and pretty. If I buy one for myself I'll have to add the lens cap pocket, I am constantly losing that thing!

    ReplyDelete
