Fabulous Finds: House Beautiful Super-Giveaway!!!

Oh, the dreams of having a beautiful house! I'm pretty happy with the nice townhouse we've got, with the new and pretty appliances, but I wish we had room in our living room for a really nice ottoman coffee table like this one from CSN Stores. It even has storage inside it! But if I put that in our room, we'd have absolutely no floor space for the kids to play! Hmm, floor space or a really pretty place to get the toys out of the way? Anyway, on with the giveaway. . .

You want to know one thing that in my book is totally worth splurging on?
Luxurious bath towels!
Seriously, it makes a major difference in your day to step out of the shower and wrap yourself in soft, absorbent comfort rather than some scratchy old towel from WalMart. I thought my favorite bath towels were from the Kohl's Luxury Collection, but I recently discovered some that I like even better. . . and lucky for my readers, one of you will win a set of two of these amazing bath towels!

Prize #1 for this giveaway is a beautiful set of 2 Organic Bath Towels from the Turkish Towel Company! I promise you will love them as much as I do!
Why they're so incredible:
*They're made from the softest plush 100% organic cotton!
*They are super THICK and absorbent! A really nice big size too. And no matter how many times you wash them, they stay soft and gorgeous.
*The crisp white color and luxurious feel to them makes it seem like you're in a high-end spa (if you close your eyes and ignore the views of the rest of your bathroom).

I feel so lucky that I was able to review these towels and I don't want to go back to any others! My husband loves them too!

Now for Prize #2. . . A $25 gift certificate to the Byrdie Graphics Etsy shop!
This shop is chock-full of unique and interesting vinyl wall decals to really spice up your home or apartment! I received this cute Chubby Bird on a Branch decal to review. Isn't he just so adorable? Mine will not be going on my refrigerator, although I love the idea of adding graphics in unexpected spaces like this!

Byrdie Graphics will customize absolutely everything according to the size and colors you desire, so your $25 can be good towards anything you want! Wall decals are way easier (not to mention cuter!) than painting or wallpaper, and they're a really great option for renters because they will easily come off your walls without leaving any residue!

Isn't this just the most cheerful room? I love it!

Byrdie Graphics has plenty of big decals to choose from, and I'm also really impressed by all of their small images available that you can play around with. Some cost as low as $2! It's really fun to look around the shop and get inspired by all the cute ideas and rooms!

Next item up for grabs is. . . a fun and vibrant pillow cover from the Persnickety Home Designs Etsy shop!
I just love this fabric! I chose to review this throw pillow cover because I couldn't wait to put it on my black couch. It looks so fabulous there! And one winner will get the same pillow cover I chose. . . made with Alexander Henry's Kleo in black!

Persnickety Home Designs offers 8 whole pages full of really great fabric choices for your throw pillow covers! You'll find something you love, no matter what your design style or favorite colors are, and there's a really great Autumn Sale going on right now! Here are a few more details about this pillow cover:
*It's made for a 16x16" square pillow
*The quality is wonderful! It's double-stitched and beautifully sewn.
*It's a removable cover, for easy machine washing. This is perfect for homes like mine with young kids!

Prize #4 is a really cool and useful gadget. . . a Fogless Shower Mirror from ToiletTree Products!
My husband uses this a lot more than I do, since he shaves in the shower every morning, and it's so nice to find a mirror that really sticks to the wall and really doesn't fog up!

Why this product is so great:
*There's an easy-fill reservoir that you just fill up with hot water from your shower head before each use, and it neutralizes the air and water temperature to eliminate fog! Pretty genius!
*It'll stick right onto your shower wall with silicone cups and it's strong and sturdy. It was super easy to install it on the wall.
*It makes it easier to shave by having an adjustable frame and a small shelf to hold the razor.
*The mirror is shatterproof, lightweight, and made from acrylic.

The last prize in my House Beautiful Super-Giveaway is this sleek and modern-looking wall decal called "Fly Away" from the Urban Walls Etsy shop!
This Fly Away set would look so awesome in a bedroom, a home office, an entryway, or any wall that needs some visual interest and whimsy added to it!

I'm really blown away by so many of the amazing designs in the Urban Walls shop. They will customize colors and sizes for you and help you make your home or apartment come alive! I got to review this Tree Branch decal, and it's just so intricate and beautiful!
(Um, on an unrelated note, I wish that chair was also mine! How cool is that?)

I could spend a WHOLE lot of money in this shop. You could design an entire room around the amazing graphics! These Fall Trees are stunning!

  29. I think it is worth it to splurge SOME on nice towels, but I have a limit. I don't feel like I have to have salon-quality towels in my bathroom, but I don't want cheap thin ones that fade and get gross either.

  34. Right now the sink and shower area are seperate, but we will be moving in a week or so and the master will have these combined, so I know a mirror will fog, and there is NO fan in the bathroom (weird), so this would actually be quite useful for my husband to use while shaving!

  35. I have to say that on Urban Walls I really like those fly away birds
