Fab Freebie: Greensleeves

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

If green is your color then you must be psyched that March is finally here. And even if green ain’t your thing (maybe you’re more of a pink lady), not to worry – this week’s giveaway from kaarskoker has all of your favorite colors covered.

So what is kaarskoker? Literally, it’s the Dutch words for candle and sleeve smooshed together. But what is a candle sleeve? Basically it’s a why-didn’t-we-think-of-that way to help you rescue any old sconce or past-its-style-prime light fixture and liven it up with a whole new look. And you can opt for anything from traditional patterns to bold modern colors- that way you can mix up the feeling of your fixtures or tablescapes with a simple swap o’ the sleeves (can you tell I’m practicing for St. Patrick’s Day?).

Plus they even sell silver and brass kkCandlesticks which are custom made for the easy addition of their very own punchy and patterned candle sleeves (which even adjust from 4″ to 6″ in height so you can create that perfect multi-level arrangement). Fun, right? That’s why we’re excited that TWO lucky readers will win $75 gift certificates to everything on kaarskoker’s site (and the rest of of you will get a nice little consolation discount too, so stay tuned for that).

Here’s to get your mitts on these stylish sleeves:

  • PRIZE: A $75 gift certificate to kaarskoker for two lucky readers
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “SLEEVE ME” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … since we’re on the brink of spring and with that comes “warm weather clothes,” why not tell us what seasonal wardrobe is your favorite? Do you love breaking out the short sleeves and sandals for summer? Or will you soon miss the coziness of a thick winter sweater?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, March 3rd at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: All over the globe!
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

    I love wearing sandals, shorts, tanks, and frilly dresses the most. But every now-and-then I’ll crank up the AC in the middle of the hot Texas summer just to wear a sweatshirt for a little while. I think my Minnesota roots are a big part of this tradition!

  2. says


    I made my own a while back and I’d love to have a “real” set of these!

    My favorite season for clothes is fall. I love the clothes…it always brings back great memories of college, too.

  3. says


    I live in the land of no seasons (california) so I’ll say Winter, since its the only time it gets cold enough to change up my wardrobe!

    we live in canada , so we have our winter clothes almost the hole year .. but i really love summer clothes, shorts, dresses, sandals ! .. i miss the sun ..

  5. Lacey says

    I live in Iowa but am originally from Florida — and this all points to the fact that I’m ready for the snow to break (& melt) so I can enjoy the sandals and flip flops!

  6. says


    I love my fall wardrobe. The addition of tights and boots to my dresses makes me feel cozy and layered. I cherish the time before a heavy winter coat is needed.


  7. Terri says

    “SLEEVE ME” I love spring dresses!! I have so many and a great collection of beautiful shoes just screaming for sunny weather!

  8. Kelli S. says


    With warm weather, the first thing to get out has to be the flip flops! I hate socks, so getting to be bare foot is my favorite.

  9. says


    I’m in Memphis, and our springs are notoriously beautiful, but fleeting. So I cannot wait to put away my thick coat and pull out the dresses and sandals and light cardigans….
