Miss Leona’s Very Happy Chair & A Very HappyFabric Giveaway Too…

August 21, 2010 at 9:27 pm 24 comments

I want to introduce you all to my incredibly talented friend Leona.  When we lived in southern California, Leona and her lovely family lived next door to us.  Our driveways were smack dab next to each other and so we were often outside together talking about our gardens, babies, what house project was coming up next, and how to cope with the heat.  Leona and her husband Tom were the kind of next door neighbors you always hope for.  We moved back to my hometown of Santa Cruz almost 5 years ago and miss them all terribly but we keep up with pictures, facebook and now Leona and I are bonding over one more thing.  FABRIC.

Leona has illustrated books and educational materials, paints murals among other things.  She blogs here at The Very Happy Chair about her creative life.  She restores and breathes life into chairs and furniture.  She has a beautiful eye for color and detail.   The other day, she posted this darling illustration of owls on facebook.  I just about jumped up and squealed.  We started madly emailing about designing a collection of fabric around these sweet owls.  She got right on that and has a few prints available now through spoonflower.

So, because I want everyone to love her fabric – I’m hosting a giveaway!  Leave a comment here saying what you like about the fabric and you’ll be entered to win a fat quarter of one of her fabrics of your choice!  And to sweeten the deal, if you blog about my giveaway, you’ll be entered to win twice.   You can enter until the end of Friday the 27th.  Whatcha waitin’ for?

    Well, the whole of the fabric is super cute, but I like the content little faces, the heart on their chests and how the ear tufts curl up like a smile. =]

    I love green and orange together! But I really like the eyelashes! How sweet is that on those happy faces.

  • 14. Marcia W.  |  August 24, 2010 at 11:22 am

    Adorable happy owls in any colors (yet especially the orange owls on green) tickle me! This pattern is unique because of the hearts, eyelashes, and details of the horns, beak nose, and wings. The horn tufts remind me of a princess crown. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com Thank you for this giveaway.
