In celebration of cracking 500 followers
, I am so very pleased to be able to do a very special giveaway featuring one of my favorite manufacturers: UMBRA
The nice folks at Umbra have made it possible for me to give away not ONE, but TWO, phenomenal products as a way to celebrate my awesome followers! I started this blog almost three years ago, and never thought I would reach such a milestone -- THANK YOU for your support!
I love Umbra products, always have. Before I got into minis, I appreciated their functional and stylish modern aesthetic for what tend to be the more mundane things around the house: garbage cans, towel hooks, kitchen gear. Umbra always made things unexpectedly fun. Once I embarked on my modern miniature hobby, I was able to still use Umbra, but this time by repurposing for sleek environments. I absolutely love the Fish Hotel by Teddy Luong, and have used it many times for scenes
, and continue to be entranced by Umbra's consistent craftsmanship and ingenuity. I keep track of all they do -- if you haven't already, bookmark their website
, Facebook page
, and Twitter feed
SO...here are the two fun and amazing products for this giveaway:
A BLACK FISH HOTEL
, just released. I was so thrilled to see this, and it definitely did not disappoint! This is, of course, intended as a sleek fish tank, but I love the possibilities it offers for modern mini living!
And a set of three TALI WALL TILES
. While I will not insist that you use it for mini work, I certainly did... the panels make for quite a dramatic backdrop. They are gorgeous!
Here are the rules:
