yet another giveaway!

Remember a few months ago when I hosted a giveaway to benefit Scarlett Threads?
Reminder-
Scarlett Threads, a compassionate boutique, specializing in unique products designed and produced by talented seamstresses in rural Asia. Scarlet Threads products are fairly traded and created in compliance with our core vision and values. When you purchase one of our beautiful hand-crafted products, you become part of our story by providing a woman with safe and rewarding work. (from their site)
Well, I am doing another one, and here is why!
Scarlett Threads often has new products come out, and when they do, they have naming contests where they ask their readers to suggest names.
I won!
Thanks to yours truely, this lovely lady is called Penelope!


With summer's end right around the corner, our new reversible apron is also perfect for fall! One side is a bold floral print in shades of pink, brown, and orange. The other side features a leaf motif with shades of teal and gold. The neck and waist straps are both made of green polka-dot and are fully adjustable.

Isn't she cute?! Wouldn't you love to have her in your kitchen?

If you would, here's how you could-
(same rules as last time)

You'll receive one entry for each of the following-

1- leave a comment, first of all, and tell me which of their aprons is your favorite design

2- become a follower of my blog (if you already do, just let me know)

3- become a follower of the Scarlett Threads blog

4- tweet about this giveaway (if you do, add the @lexilooo and @ScarletThreadFT so I see it) (feel free to retweet a few times a week, too!)

5- while you are tweeting, follow both @lexilooo and @ScarletThreadFT

6- blog about this giveaway on your own blog (leave the link here for me)

7- if you are really loving this idea, buy an apron from their shop for either yourself or a giveaway of your own, and you'll receive an extra ten entries!


Also, Scarlett Threads is working to introduce something new- they will be working with readers to host apron parties! It is a very new concept and still in the early stages, but I think I may be hosting one sometime this fall. It would be along the lines of a Tupperware party or the like, but way more fun! Interested in attending mine, either in person or virtually? Let me know! Interested in hosting one of your own? Let me know, and I will put you in contact with the Scarlett Threads girls and they will help make it happen!

I will keep this giveaway open through the remainder of August, so you have some time to enter and tell all of your friends :)

Awhhh, thanks for doing another give away for ST...they are near and dear to my heart. I did a give away for them when they were just getting off the ground and it was fun to spread the good news of such an amazing little organization. I also love that you have the NDFH button on your blog (my Khloe is in the cute face in the letter "D"!!)

Anyway...I love ALL of their reversible aprons...so I guess it's between the Elle and the new Penelope with the soft teal sash!

I am a long time blog follower of Scarlet Threads, and a follower of your blog, as well!

I have purchased a total of 4 aprons from their shop...one for my give-away, one for a gift, and 2 matching ones for my girls!! :) Not a 'new' order though, so not sure if that counts??? If not, then I get a total of 3 entries.

Thanks again for giving them a fresh shout-out... it's for a GREAT cause!! <><

Blessings,
~Tanya

Those are adorable - so festive and fun!

I like Olivia for me (and that is going to be my baby girl name if I ever get pregnant and have another girl again, by the way) And I like Summer Joy for Vivian, my diva.

Just bought the Pheobe for my baby sisters 24th! (yes I now feel OLD!) She's just started baking and I think this apron will encourage her to bake more.

As to the NEW apron- I'm still hoping to win it for E's upcoming 27th in the fall.
