Friday Finds- Featuring beiFiori Embellish and GIVEAWAY!!!

Last week's Friday finds featuring NestaHome was great. I was really excited that you guys liked the giveaway so much.  I like being able to find cool etsy shops or great companies that have products so great they need to be shared. 

This weeks Friday Finds was not found by me though. A wonderful new reader, Marilyn, contacted me about hosting a giveaway for her etsy shop beiFiori Embellish.  I, of course, was happy to help. 

Marilyn's shop beiFiori Embellish is such a great little shop.  She started the shop May 2010 after getting encouragement and support from her family and friends.  Marilyn works full time so she only has time to make things on the weekends or after work, but she says her mind is always full of ideas and she wished she had more time to create.

I asked Marilyn what materials she liked working with the most and she said, "I love working with burlap, muslin, osnaburg, vintage looking lace, and ruffles- lots of ruffles!  I also likes working with rosettes, ticking, toile anything that reminds me of vintage."

I asked her where she gets her inspiration from and she said, "I get my inspiration from the love of creating something and the satisfaction I get when i see the completed project.  I'm always looking at magazines, blogs - I'm a blog junkie!" (Aren't we all Marilyn? hehe) "There are so many incredibly talented women out there and I love it! I love the decorating ideas I see."

I love her creativity, and vintage inspired designs. 

Don't you love this apron?
Bon Appetit Apron

It would make a perfect hostess gift right? Heck it would make a perfect I-want-to-look-good-in-my-kitchen-so-I'm-buying-it-for-myself-gift. Someone better snap this up before I convince my husband that I HAVE TO HAVE IT!

And look at this gorgeous French inspired pillow cover.
16x16 Pillow Cover with French Text and Eiffel Tower
Ah Paris! The Eiffel Tower. And Lace.  Could it be any cuter?

And before you answer no, take a look at this one:
Burlap and Toile Pillow Cover

Ruffles! Toile! (insert deep blissful sigh here)

I also fell in love with this trio of dish towels
Set of Three Kitchen Towels

And this tote bag
Black Canvas Tote

You can also find cute scarves, more totes and pillow covers and so many other cute items in her shop.  All at such great prices too.

And because Marilyn is such a wonderful lady, she has generously offered to give one of you lucky readers the chance to win one of her darling creations.

I have to come back and enter later. But that apron would look smashing next to your kitchen counter. Way cheaper than a reno.
