IT'S TIME FOR A BEAUTIFUL GIVEAWAY ..........

Come one, come all { plus any of you men out there .... you have to bathe as well as us females !! } and enter this lovely Giveaway from Marie @ Natural Calico .





Natural Calico is an online boutique selling uniquely gorgeous things for your home. Marie { the Stylist ( above )}, husband Alan { the IT Guru } & Ashley { the photographer } are all part of the Natural Calico family.
Marie, after many years in a serious, ' grown-up ' job, decided that it was high time for a change. After going back to school for some serious study, she took the plunge and launched her own interior design business.
..... and, over the last 10 years, Marie and Ashley have shot homes all over the world for leading publications. 
Alongside all of this, the idea of an online shop, combined with style tips and a blog, had been simmering away at the back of Marie's mind and, thus, Natural Calico was born.
Style wise, Natural Calico is all about creating a blank canvas, whilst adding interest and depth with beautiful accessories. The look is crisp, fresh and timeless. When you dip into Natural Calico it's like mooching around your favourite interiors shop so, go over and make yourself at home.
Now, for the Giveaway .....



The Giveaway comprises, one Hamam Bath/Beach towel in grey with white stripe .....





..... two matching Hamam hand towels .....



There are also three Olive soaps included in the giveaway. These are soaps handmade in Syria. They are wonderfully pure and natural and have been made from olive oil and other essential oils.
The first is Olive soap with Chamomile ..... it includes olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, sodium water and chamomile.



The next soap included in the giveaway is Olive soap with Sandalwood .....


..... and finally, Olive soap with Sweet Lemon.
This Giveaway is open to all, worldwide. To enter, comment, follow me if you don't already and, for extra entries, blog, Facebook and tweet about it or put it on your sidebar. 
The Giveaway will be beautifully wrapped with fluffy tissue paper and twine and, when the winner opens the pretty parcel, it will smell delicious.



There are so many beautiful items in Marie's online shop for kitchen's .....



..... living areas .....






..... bedrooms, bathrooms, cushions, throws, curtains .....




..... and, even Vintage.




This gorgeous giveaway from the generous Marie @ Natural Calico ends on Monday 21st October when a winner will be drawn.

Lots of luck everyone and have a lovely week.

  5. These hammam towels remind me of when I lived in Paris for a few months last year. Quite a lot of stores were selling them to be used as a chic version of beach towels. I also remember my boyfriend buying similar soap (called Alep soap, also from Syria) at the... hardware store! They really did sell anything and everything...
    Anyways, thanks for the giveaway and for sharing this shop with us!

I found So many pretty things I love there! and now it's not to easy to choose favourite ones:) but I love collecting vintage treasures so if i would choose, it would be vintage candle holders. They have beautiful shape! looks like hundred years! and have scandi style! Also love the Chair in striped fabric. WOW!!!!! wonderful design! in the end I found wooden -coffee-pot which makes me big smile because i imagined that I grow coffe in my kitchen pot:) crazy!!! :)

  20. Hello Jackie and happy (almost over) Sunday! Marie's online store is terrific and so generous of her to offer such a great giveaway. I love how bright and uncluttered her webpage is that allows her beautiful objects to shine. I can't stop thinking about the olive & sweet lemon soap. Perhaps Santa is going to have to buy some for himself!! I hope you all are doing very well, especially your sweet Henry! Sending you all my best, xxoo Deb
