summer : a giveaway to celebrate the season

A summer inspired pinboard; hues of yellow and blue, soft-to-touch cotton, linen and bamboo, embroidery detailing and simple design. 

Perhaps my very favourite giveaway yet, this collection of beautiful summery goodness is valued at over $1100AUD. A big thank you to those who have contributed, your generosity astounds me!

One very lucky winner will receive:

1. Peace by Elf - handmade in Bali from high quality leather, this light tan bag can be carried like a purse or worn across the body. Featuring bohemian braiding and beautiful lining it's valued at $150.

2. I'm a firm believer in good, quality shoes for kids and Saltwater Sandals are my first choice for summer. The very latest colour in the collection, these turquoise children's shoes are valued at $69 (winner will choose size).

3. Absolutely gorgeous reversible tree puzzle from Dragonfly Toys featuring spring on one side and autumn on the other. Standing at 70cm high it includes 52 pieces and is suitable for 5-8 years olds. Valued at $35.50

4. Rebekka Seale adores fresh blooms and "Golden Ranunculus" is testament to her love of vintage botanical illustrations. A lovely 5"x7" archival art print of her original watercolour and gouache painting, valued at $14.65.

5. What could be nicer than curling up in cotton and bamboo after a day at the beach? This Home Republic queen/king cotton and bamboo basket-weave blanket is oh so soft and rather stylish too. Winner will receive the blanket in the grey colourway, valued at $139.95. Adairs are offering Che & Fidel readers a 10% discount from their online store for the month of January. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer but available for discounted and full-priced items, the promo code CF10 is available till 31st January 2013. 

6. Little Tienda works with artisans in Mexico to create traditional clothing and homewares in a vivid colour palette. This cotton Grande Serape is the perfect beach blanket and the la flores dress is a bright and beautiful essential for every little girl (winner will choose size and colour) - valued at $148

7. Haveli Design uses hand block printing techniques to create simple and beautiful children's clothes. I absolutely adore everything in the collection, especially this Melon Jali Mexican Dress with its sweet flutter sleeves and delicate embellishment. Winner will choose size - valued at $38

8. A baby wrapped in the softest bamboo - one of the best things in life, I say. I used Aden + Anais bamboo swaddles for Poet; as a wrap, shade, blanket etc, a definite essential! These three swaddles are decorated in a blue and tangerine 'mela' print - valued at $44.95.

9. Babywearing in summer calls for a cool and breathable pure linen sling from Sakura Bloom. I use mine daily and highly recommend! Winner will choose colour (good luck with that!) - valued at $88.

10. Michelle and Emma are a mother + daughter duo from Bondi and they've worked together to create Ink & Stitch - a range of stylish 100% organic cotton bags. Lightweight and durable, each design features an original illustration. Winner will receive "femme" - valued at $36.

11. I love Love Mae and these bamboo dinner sets are gorgeous and practical (win-win). Winner will choose either the 'under the sea' or 'woodland critters' design - valued at $29.95.

12. Inspired by simple form and chaotic colour, BOXY is your summer jewellery essential. Handmade by Sally Jarmaine in a small studio amongst the trees, this block necklace titled "tumbleturn" is gorgeous - valued at $35

13. Ella Leach has created a fabulous Family Planner to help you stay organised for 2013. Featuring spaces for 6 names, a column for birthdays and anniversaries and a different print each month, this is a family must-have - valued at $30

14. I have a very soft spot when it comes to blue overalls, especially when worn by a baby in summer. These classic overalls are by Quince and valued at $38 (winner will choose size). Quince are also offering Che & Fidel readers 20% off full priced stock with the code: CHE

15. Che adores his tin tin pants and this feather print is the perfect accompaniment to the balloony design. Another fabulous piece from the Udder collection and valued at $45 (winner will choose size).

16. I couldn't have a summer giveaway without sunscreen, could I? This pack from Invisible Zinc includes 1 x Junior Clip On 60g, 1 x 4hour water resistant sunscreen 50ml and 1 x Face and Body sunscreen 150g. Valued at $71.90 (pop back here to read my review of natural sunscreens).
