deseta {giveaway}!





We know a good thing when we see it. A company named after and on a mission to find and deliver happiness is one to pay attention to.
deseta "comes from Ethiopia, but it celebrates all things blissful, all things beautiful. its for you, your kids, and your home. look, and let it put a smile on your face."
Immediately apparent on their site, beautiful Ethiopian prints and patterns are in the making:



"From the marked symbols and motifs found in its magic scrolls to the geometric patterns found in traditional dress, crosses and paintings (a style found all over Africa as well, known as the “African fractal”), deseta has taken this style and has given it a very modern and contemporary twist." They're peaceful and well done and I'm anxiously awaiting the unveiling of products that can become a part of my home.

But all the more exciting is the news that deseta has already created baby goods for the home and nursery... now available. And more unique and modern and 5 star than anything I've seen yet.



The Live and Learn pillows, currently available online in 12 colors and shape combinations, are sold singly or in a pack of 3. They're made of high quality, super soft ultrasuedes, making this learning experience (each colored square pillow has a removable and mini shape pillow in it's center) both brilliant and gentle.

And.. after shapes and colors have become second nature, embrace and capture creativity with pillows-by-your-tyke.



Is your refrigerator getting full of your favorites? Transfer some of your baby Picasso's doodles to textile art that will last a lifetime. See instructions here.

(Drumroll...) Deseta wanted to share some bliss and offer up 2 live and learn pillows {a $160 value!} of one winner's choice.



Wow. I think that's enough happiness to see anyone through these winter blues! What's your favorite deseta design?
