RACKK AND RUIN GIVEAWAY


It's time for another giveaway!!
gawd i love giveaways.
This time i've teamed up with Allmodern.com to give one of you guys this amazingly awesome Koko Company pillow. I chose this "Java" series pillow because its pattern was inspired by the traditional ikat method of resist dying (one of my very favorite looks). This pillow would be perfect for reading against in bed or thrown on your couch. It's nice and big (15"W x 27"D) and has beautiful colors that would pop under any lighting.

***To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below telling me what book you would curl up against the pillow with this summer (include contact email). . . For bonus points follow me on Twitter and Bloglovin!!

(Contest closes in on July 22)

Cus I am just the coolest dude, it would definitely have to be Harry Potter (the first one). I have finally given in and decided that it is about time I read them, so yar hear it goes!.....

Kristine said...

I've been meaning to curl up with the Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera and I could not think of a better reason for doing so than having this pillow to curl up next to

Let's Bolt said...

I would certainly be reading Wildcat by Eli Cash.

baine said...

oh my gosh this is beautiful, i am in love with this look. i can imagine it now... me, and World War Z by Max Brooks, in my hammock outside nestling with this baby.

ariane said...

What an amazing pillow! I would be reading "She's Come Undone" ... for the 3rd time.

Alison said...

Oooh! Love this pillow. I just got a copy of the first Foxfire book from 1972, so I'm reading up on building log cabins, slaughtering hogs, snake lore and and being a self-sufficient Appalachian. I'd love to recline against this pillow while making lists for the farmer's market. Foxfire is the best!

Also, so pumped to see you on Twitter. Follow me @TeenAngster!

Dang. It is a good thing this is chosen at random because I don't think anyone is going to beat 'Wildcat by Eli Cash'...

I will probably be ready to re-read the Grovont Trilogy by Tim Sandlin (for the thousandth time). Skidded Parts, Sorrow Floats and Social Blunders.

My friend Alysia down here in New Orleans wants this pillow SO BADLY! She says she would curl up to this pillow and pretend to read "Teach Like A Champion," but would really probably read a trashy magazine. Good on ya, Alysia.

rebelrebel said...

OH FAWk . Now im either going to have to search them out and buy for myself, or ... get the giveaway.

Absolutely brilliant.

heleen said...

This would be perfect for when I move out next month, I need some nice room decoration! And I'd probably read Hesse's Steppenwolf while comfortably leaning against this brightly coloured love item.

Skid said...

I would say White Teeth by Zadie Smith, terribly funny. Or maybe, some Garrison Keillor, for old times sake.

Hope you find a good book to read, I would be reading something for classes I am certain if I had this pillow, but, just to make it special, I might just read No One Belongs Here More Than You instead.

:D I really enjoy your blog. I visited Burlington recently and stopped at a few thrift stores like old gold and battery street jeans and thought of rackk and ruin! Have a lovely summer.

mc said...

I'd read The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho. I've been meaning to pick it up for ages.

That is one drool-worthy pillow. I wouldn't drool on it though, that wouldn't be pretty.

Ahhh, for sure Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I will never get tired of that book. It's amazing.

I would curl up/sprawl out at the beach with 'Gypset style' by Julia Chaplin, if I'm lucky enough to recieve for my birthday which is in two days time! The pillow would give me comfort and inspiration aswell as the images in the book. All helping me towards work on my second year final pieces for my Fashion & Textiles course in September! xx
