{Holy Giveaway, Batman!} CLOSED!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

In honor of Valentine's Day our friends Peter & Juwels over at PollenArts are giving away some of their hand poured beeswax candles to SIX lucky readers!

Four years ago this husband and wife team traded in their fancy high rise loft for a 1975 Winnebago in search of a simpler life.

Since then they've traveled all over making beeswax candles on their tiny stove in their big red honey pot.

Our first prize winner will take home three antique bottle shaped owl candles. (All of you Chi O's out there better be shimmying across your hardwoods!).

Our second prize winner will take home these two milk & honey candles. (Swoon).

Our third prize winner will take home these three beeswax beauties.



Our fourth prize winner will take home three beeswax inkwell candles

Our fifth prize winner will take home this honey jar candle ... (one of my favorites!).

Lastly, our sixth prize winner will take home this pine cone shaped beeswax candleIn the meantime you can enjoy 13% off their Etsy shop when using the coupon code "todaysletters" at checkout!

To enter, swing by pollenArts Etsy shop and leave a comment below before Friday at midnight. Become one of our Google followers and you can leave two comments, doubling your chances of winning. After all, who wouldn't want to receive a box stamped F-R-A-G-I-L-E from these homies? All six winners will be drawn at random and announced on the blog next Monday.

Happy Valentine's Day!
XOXO

Those are incredible candles! And I'm so curious about that switch from a high-rise to a camper -- every summer I love living out of a duffel bag, and then come fall I'm yo-yoing right back into college in the city. Love that permanent simplicity.
