Abodent & a Winner

One fun thing about blogging is getting to introduce others to products and companies I really like.  I was recently contacted by UK based Abodent about sponsoring my blog.  (Do you think it was because of the Union Jack dresser?)  Well, I loved their stuff so much, I asked for some of their products instead of a monetary sponsorship and I was not disappointed.   
I knew immediately I wanted one of their beautiful pillow covers.  Not only is this one so pretty, but it’s extremely well made with exquisite detail on the back. 
I love it! 
They also carry unique hardware including hooks…
…and cabinet knobs. 
You’ll see these quartz knobs very soon on one of my newest dressers. 
They also carry decorative pieces and tableware like this Floral Net Bowl and petite Blizzard Jug
This jug makes a perfect creamer or small vase for flowers. 
…and you know I love blue and white.  Be still my heart. 
Here’s the best news for you.  If you love this stuff as much as I do, you can use coupon code “10MS” when shopping their site and receive a 10% discount!
Vintage Inspired

Happy shopping!
The randomly chosen winner of the Winterberry Cottage print giveaway is…
BJ of Sweet Nothings!  Congrats, my friend. 
Remember, you can use coupon code “MISSMUSTARDSEED” at Winterberry Cottage to receive a buy three get one free deal. 

For those eagerly awaiting the next installment of the slipcover tutorial series, it will be posted tomorrow.  I finished the wing chair and filmed all along the way, so I just need to edit and post the videos.  If you’re working on a project, you won’t have to wait too long.

  1. I swung over and took a look and the website is fabulous…found a few too many things I would love to have!
    I love how you photographed all your new things, especially the reflection through the glass knob.
    and…I'm looking forward to the next video. I only have three pieces cut so far and am stuck on the arms which aren't really arms. It's been very helpful although I cheated and bought cording!

    Thanks again and have a great day!

  2. Congratulations to BJ! What a fun win!

    I think it is a win/win to share product for advertising. If you love something enough to want to own some it is more convincing to your readers….What you have shared are very lovely items. And your photos are great!!

  3. The knob caught me eye too. It seemed funny seeing pastels on your blog though…the quilt and pillow cover are a new look at MMS!

    And thank you so much for the slipcover tutorials. I have a few projects like that in mind and I can use all the help I can get.
    Oh and in regards to future linking up to FF, do you consider a window sill furniture? Just wondering, not that I have done anything about my window sill project yet. I am just not as quick and productive as you.
