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!

Hello! That's a beautiful scarf. I've been on the hunt for some new scarves to use as coverups for nursing my newborn baby and also with fall just around the corner.
