It's Giveaway Time from Pillowbabble!

Have you heard of Pillowbabble ™? If not, count yourself now part of the "in" crowd!  Pillowbabble™ creates  gorgeous pillows made from beautiful fabrics with embroidered quotes.



I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Babs from Pillowbabble™.

How did you come up with the name for your company?

The Pillowbabble™ name was actually created years ago while chatting with my sister on the beach and professing our love for meaningful quotes and how they inspire, motivate, redirect, refocus, humor and enlighten our lives in one simple statement.  We reserved the domain name for a possible future collection and then went on with our demanding lives for several years thinking that one day we would have more time to devote to it.  Well, "tomorrow never comes, if you don't focus on today"  we realized.  A life changing moment inspired us to get stitching right away and not delay.  We personally created, and built a bare bones wholesale website, (we are not exactly a "techy" duo) without prior knowledge, and training. It is pretty basic, but it seems to work well for us.  Keep it simple... is the common thread we strive to live by. Simple is also our design direction when creating our collections.  Since there are so many wonderful patterned pillows and shams out on the market, we feel a simple lumbar design in a solid organic hue with a quiet font gives the words the attention they deserve.  We love how the rich and luxurious embroidery contrasts with the organic texture of the designer grade jute.  We also feel the simple pillow design is the perfect layer to nestle in front of all of those wonderful print and patterned square shams with a punch of personality. 


Of course, our love of the sea inspired The SeaWorthy Collection™. Therefore, we are so excited to offer a giveaway from that collection for "A Nantucket State of Mind" during this special time of year. The holidays are especially fun by the sea and this Pillowbabble™ is whimsical and festive in a Coral Red Hue with a fun shore loving babble stitched in SeaMist Thread.  It is one of our favorites, a best seller, and a fan favorite on Pinterest too.  

Where can we buy Pillowbabble™ pillows?

Pillowbabbles™ are currently available online via our Online Retailers. We do not have plans at this time to sell direct, we absolutely love working with our retailers and they are experts at what they do!  Again, we like to keep it simple and concentrate our efforts on expanding into different collections.  As we continue to grow, more and more retailers are finding us and our Pillowbabbles™ are popping up in wonderful boutiques across the country. Please let us know if you would like to see Pillowbabbles™ in a boutique near you.   

Pillowbabble™has been kind enough to offer a giveaway! One of my lucky readers will win the Pillowbabble™pillow pictured below!  It is one of my favorites!


So, how do you enter?  Leave me a comment telling me what you are thankful for this holiday season!

I will be picking a winner on Friday, November 23, 2012....Black Friday!

Good Luck to all!
( I am not being compensated in any way for this post...just love the pillows!)

  1. great seeing another New Englander blog! And yes, living in Maine I can totally relate to seagulls with french fries... or anything else they can get for that matter. I am thankful for family, friends, my health, and while I don't have much, sharing what I do have with those that need it. I'll be looking forward to sitting down with friends and family this Thanksgiving for good food and good conversation, hope your Thanksgiving is great too!

  2. I am thankful for the love of my family and the members that are in it.
    This year my mother has had two open heart 14 hour surgeries (an aortic dissection --twice). My father has had two cancer surgeries on his head. It has not been easy going back and forth between my house and theirs but they have been my backbone and have helped me and my husband when I was having health issues. My siblings have come in from all over too (I have 6 younger than I). We all are interested in helping the other. Thankful for my husband and I who just celebrated 14 yrs married.

  3. What a great idea for pillows..I chuckled about the seagull with the fry and also can relate from living in the Pacific Northwest were gulls are well inland at all times too.

    I am so thankful for life....all of it!

    Thank you for being there with your words of encouragement..it means more than words can say.

    Much love to you! xo

  4. My 14 year old is also a collector of quotes. Her current favorite is Marilyn Monroe's: Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. I am thankful to Jesus for every breath.

  6. I love this pillow, too. I am on my way to check out some of the online retailers that carry it. But first,

    I am thankful for so many things, but mostly that my family has their health because without that....nothing matters.

  9. What a fantastic giveaway! I am thankful for my wonderful husband, my health, my job and the fact that I finally passed my driving test this year. (I am also thankful for silly things like the abundance of mince pies on the shelves and Christmas being less than a month away)!

  10. Where to start... I am thankful for my family and my friends first and foremost. I guess it all really stops there, the rest just comes as a bonus. Cute pillows. Great giveaway idea!!! I saw that Grey's Anatomy episode last night (tivo) and thought of you and your daughter. I would imagine that brought that to light for many people as it is not a condition that is widely publicized. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
