Fun story with an even better ending. I ordered a whole slew of these Henry Handwork embroidered guest towels, and posted about them here. I admit I want to ornament the holidays this year, to gather my loved ones close in a fairy tale house of High WASP fripperies.
The store, Samuel Scheuer Linens in San Francisco, must have noticed all you nice people visiting their site, because their rep got in touch with me and offered to send me either another pair of towels or a set of cocktail napkins, as a thank you present. Wasn’t that unexpected and nice?
But since I had already ordered abundantly for myself, it felt only natural to host a giveaway. After all, if we can have Friendsmas for artisans, we should have a Friendsmas simply from me to you.
A couple of notes. For the first time ever I’m going to limit this giveaway to those who have previously commented, as a special thank you to for all your time over these past (almost) 8 years. Unfortunately, the entrants also need to be limited to people in the USA. But no need to tell a story this time. A simple, “Yes, please,” the name of the design you’d like from the assortment here, and whether you’d like a pair of towels or a set of four cocktail napkins, or one towel and two napkins, will suffice. In retrospect, not 100% simple;).
I will announce the winner this Friday, November 25th, along with a couple of Thanksgiving weekend online sales of note.
By the way, Scheuer Linens have a Hanukah towel too. This year Christmas Eve falls on the first first night of Hanukah, so my extended family and I will be celebrating Chrismukah. Or, as we have often and happily said to each other on the doorstep, feet stomping to dry and breath fogging in a California kind of chill, “KWISSMISS TIME!”
Let’s keep the holidays happy, cute, courteous, and true to our hearts. Often easier said than done. Cheers and thank you very much for everything.
