i just wanted to say....thank you (a giveaway)

This year has seen Che & Fidel grow beyond my expectations. And I have you (and you and you and you) to thank. Without your regular visits and your beautiful and encouraging comments the growth and expansion wouldn't be possible. 

It's with much gratitude that I bring you this little giveaway. Ideally I would like to send you all a sweet package in the mail...but there is, of course, the reality (not my strong point). Instead, three of you will receive one of the gift packages above - collections of gorgeous, hand-picked-by-me products that will, no doubt, be a welcome addition to your home and your Christmas. 

To the artists, creatives and companies who have contributed....you have been so generous and I am very grateful.

Gift Pack One includes:

1. Bucket Tote handmade by Maze & Vale - handprinted linen and cotton with genuine leather handles, stands 32cm tall from base to brim and is 26cm wide - $45. 2. Grande Serape from Little Tienda - a gorgeous 100% cotton blanket that adds a little bohemian goodness to your home, picnic or day at the beach - $89. 3. This whimsical print by Rebekka Seale (she created my beautiful header) is titled "Good Night" - it's a stunning addition to any bedroom (mine is currently at the framers!). 11inchx14inch print of an original gouache and ink painting, printed on 100% cotton, 190gsm Hahnemuhle watercolour paper, unframed - $30. 4. Home Republic Velour Beach Towel from Adairs - a luxurious adult-size towel, densely woven with a velour finish, designed to last for many summers to come - $69.95. 5. Handmade "stack" necklace by BOXY titled "Reservation". Made with polymer clay and inspired by simple form, this is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe - $25. 6. Phytocare Papaya Ointment, the perfect all-round family ointment for dry skin and scratches (it makes the perfect lip balm) - $6.60. 7. Simple Silk OR Essential Silk Sling from Sakura Bloom - I absolutely adore my silk sling and consider it a "muma must-have" - winner will choose style and colour - $180/$198. 8. Holiday Assorted Greeting Cards (3 designs, 2 of each) by the very lovely Ella Leach Designs - $22. Total value $467.55

Gift Pack Two includes:

1. A one year subscription to Little One Baby magazine (includes the annual edition of Little One Kids) - a gorgeous bi-annual publication that often features the words of yours truly - $30. 2. Handprinted, handmade cushion cover by Melbourne-based Hello Milky. This simple, beautiful design (45cmx45cm) is perfect for your bed or your favourite chair - $40. 3. Laundry set by Murchison-Hume including Garment Groom and Laundry Soak in "white grapefruit" - $32.45. 4. Home Republic Velour Beach Towel from Adairs - a luxurious adult-size towel, densely woven with a velour finish, designed to last for many summers to come - $69.95. 5. Plum coloured BOXY earrings - $14. 6. Teal jumble necklace by BOXY, titled "Eyes on the Prize" - handmade by artist and muma Sally Jarmaine and inspired by the colour found in a line of dialogue, a vintage magazine, a memory - $35. 7. Absolutely stunning waxed canvas tote by Barnacle Bags. In a beautiful shade of charcoal grey it features leather straps and heather grey organic cotton lining - $96. 8. Featuring exquisite embroidery on colourful cotton, this la flor blouse from Little Tienda is the ideal addition to your summer bohemian-inspired wardrobe - $69. This pack also includes the Holiday Greeting Cards and Papaya Ointment featured in Gift Pack One. Total Value $415.

Gift Pack Three includes:

Christmas wouldn't be the same without the warm glow of beeswax candles - this Christmas tree pack from Queen B features two candles - $24.95. 3. BOXY block necklace titled "Daisy Chain" - happy pastels make this a fun and whimsical design - $35. 4. CD pack from the very talented Sarah Humphreys including her latest album hello and two EPs - Him and Autumn - $55. 5. Cobalt blue earrings by BOXY - $14. 6. Home Republic Velour Beach Towel from Adairs - a luxurious adult-size towel, densely woven with a velour finish, designed to last for many summers to come - $69.95. 7.

*UPDATE* - for those who haven't already read this on facebook....

My beautiful friend and fellow blogger Nicole (muma to three boys aged 6, 7 & 10) lost her home and all her possessions in a house fire on Friday night. Thankfully this family of five are all safe and sound...but they only have the clothes on their backs.

I have decided to announce two winners for this giveaway - the third package will go to Nicole. I am sure that you will all understand and respect my decision. 

If you are interested in helping this family in any way please email me....thank you.

COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. 

The first winner is #384 - B
The second winner is #192 Princesspillar

Congratulations ladies. Let's chat over email about details x

  49. Damn my living in America. Also, I don't have a Facebook or a blog (though I'm toying with posting some of my photos...) or an Instagram so I'm extra out on this one. Though I'm ineligible, I find myself oddly excited for everyone else. These are some fabulous things!

    I have a few Rebekka Seale prints ...her alphabet series. They're in our living room at the time but one day will be in our little one's nursery. I like to collect things here and there when I find them for the one-day baby. I found her work and blog through yours, and I owe you a very big thank you for that. I also owe you a rather large thanks for introducing me to Sakura Bloom. I've always been a fan of babywearing and I think that they make the most beautiful slings. It's such an empowering practice and I admire mammas that take part in it. Unfortunately you don't see too much babywearing here in the southern United States though one day at the market last week there was this graceful, statuesque African woman with her baby in a block-printed sling on her stomach and I couldn't stop smiling. But off my tangent... this is a fantastic giveaway and I've really enjoyed tagging along for your blogging journey.

    My best,
    Jo Farmer
