INKS AND THREAD .:: GIVEAWAY ::.
I recently re-connected with fellow UVM grad Maggie Pate via the wonders of Instagram. After spending a few years in NYC post college, Maggie returned the beautiful mountains of Eastern Tennessee where she was raised. She's been busy working on a collection of geometrically and biologically-inspired textiles and scarves called Inks & Thread. Maggie has generously offered to give away one of these beautiful scarves on Rackk and Ruin!
I chose the Thunderbird Tracks scarf for the giveaway because I was immediately drawn to the chevron pattern and light chiffon material. To enter the giveaway leave a comment (with your email) below! Random drawing will be held on Monday, August 5!
Check out Maggie's Instagram feed if you love gorgeous photos of flora, fauna, food and textiles!
IN THE RACKK & RUIN STUDIO
About 6 months ago I moved my jewelry studio and I couldn't be happier. The new space has a lot more light, space and an attached showroom space where I can display my Rackk & Ruin Jewelry as well as vintage clothes I have for sale. If any of you are ever in Burlington, VT please get in touch with me about coming by for a visit!!
