Heartworks hand embroidered bear and cushion from Tractor Home

WELL I certainly hope you're not sick of extravagant giveaways.... because we have another pearler for you today!  Today's beautiful prize has been generously offered from the lovely folks at Tractor Home, who I have previously blogged here and here.  Mandy Munro and family travel to Africa regularly to source her incredible range of handmade homewares and accessories... and these stunning embroidered pieces from Heartworks Stitching Club in Cape Town are one of her most popular finds!  Each piece is embroidered and appliqued completely by hand in a  free form 'design-as-you-go' kinda way, ensuring no two designs are ever exactly the same.  This inspiring initiative now employs and empowers many local women in Cape Town - you can learn a little more about Heartworks here.

I love the sweet embroidered heart cushion... but also how GORGEOUS is the bear!  A very smart and utterly unique gift for any new bub! (Sadly no photo could ever do these guys justice... truly they are even more beautiful and detailed in person!).

You can check out these stunning pieces in person at either Safari Living or After in Melbourne, or if in Sydney try I ran the wrong way in Surry Hills.  HOWEVER if you're lucky, you might be making friends with these guys as early as next week!  You could win the very handsome pair pictured above (embroidered bear and large heart cushion) simply by leaving a comment on this post today! A winner will be selected at random and contacted by email tomorrow.  Yippee!

Huge thanks to Mandy at Tractor Home for this super gorgeous giveaway... do share the love by popping over to the Tractor Home website to check out her full range of beautiful handcrafted pieces!

*UPDATE – thanks so much for all your comments!  The winner has now been drawn – comment #197 was randomly selected.  Congratulations to Stephanie Darling, enjoy your Heartworks embroidered bear and heart cushion!! Thank you again to Tractor Home for such a lovely giveaway!!
