I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised by how many of your comments on this week’s giveaway were pro-pillow fight. Though I agree certain conditions (like who’s swinging, where they’re aiming and how heavy the pillow is) can make all the difference. Just promise us that any pillows won or purchased from Oliver Fabrics are treated less like weapons and more like the stylish accents that they are.
As you know, Oliver is giving away one pair of matching pillows featuring any of the fabrics on their entire site. And while we’re obviously not eligible for the prize, we’re looking forward to checking out their selection in person tonight at their new store in Richmond (5612 Grove Avenue, if you’re interested). Though you’ll have to promise to behave and not start any impromptu pillow battles… unless it’s the kind we’re you’re fighting over a favorite discounted fabric sample.
So who’s claiming the first prize of 2010? Well, after I wooed random.org with a mixed tape of jams from the Alanis era, it said we oughta know that our winner is… Nicole (for whom a normal pillow fight isn’t enough, she prefers them at hotels where jumping on the bed is also part of the equation). Congrats! Now for the difficult decision of picking your favorite fabric (don’t worry, you can pick two if you want to do a coordinating front and back design, that way it’s more like you get four free pillows and two totally different looks).
And try not to be too bummed if you didn’t win this time. Next week’s prize is pretty great too. It’s a little something that we fell in love with last year- so much so that we actually sent it to everyone on our Christmas card list. And next week a pair of you will score one for yourselves.
