Grand Finale Giveaway!!!

Whew! This series of giveaways has been a blast! We've had 9 fabulous giveaways from 9 talented artists, crafters and designers. I've enjoyed every last bit of it and I hope you have too because I saved one last piece of fabulous for today.



Our final Moms Unite giveaway comes to you all the way from the UK. Unless, of course, you're already in the UK then it's not all that far.



Rowena of Red Ruby Rose makes the most beautiful clutch purses that my eyes have ever seen.



Seriously! Each one is a work of art!



I would be a little prettier and dance more gracefully if I got to carry one of her bags on New Year's Eve.



So do you want one? The winner of this giveaway will get to choose a clutch from her shop up to a $75 value.



You know the drill...Go check out her etsy shop, Red Ruby Rose. Then come back here and leave me a comment telling me which of her clutches is your fave. This giveaway will be open until Thursday night and the winner will be announced on Friday.

And don't forget about our Moms Unite Shopping Guide. I'm still adding new listings so there's always something new! It's not too late you get your own listing.

They are all so beautiful, it's hard to pick one favorite! I think the Peony silk lined bag with the pink lining is the most "me." I love pink and black together.

Mistress Meeyee said...

The blue bird and dove clutch is my favorite!!!

Carrie's Minnesota-nICE said...

I love the bold contrast of the Red pods - silk-lined clutch bag. I also love the color and pattern of the Pink Chrysanthemum - luxury silk clutch bag. The Boughs and branches silk-lined clutch bag is very lovely too. They are all really beautiful. It is hard to choose which one is my favorite!

Panda707 said...

Those are the most beautiful clutches. I love them all, but if I had to choose, it would be the Peacock Palace.

The Montalbos said...

so many pretties to choose from, i can't pick just one... bird on a branch, pink chrysanthemum, peony, red pods, and starburst petals.

Crystal said...

The classic green and red peacock is probably my favorite. I love how she's got so many different kinds of designs. And I've been drooling over a bag just like this one! I hope I win!

Sarah said...

Oh, My! To pick just one! Ferns and fronds, Beautiful Butterfly, Starwheel Silkline, .....

Kathleen said...

These are absolutely gorgeous! Sparkle Pod is one of my fav's.

SmrfChic said...

I have never used a clutch. In fact, I only really use one, plain, black leather purse year-round. Yet, as with most things, as soon as I loaded the page, my eyes landed on what I thought was the prettiest one - and it also happened to be the most expensive. I truly have champagne taste on a bottled water budget. ;) That said, if I was going to choose one, I like: classic liberty peacock, Rosa the romantic, silk starburst luxury, and peacock palace.

Valarie Lea said...

Seriously they are all gorgeous!!! Do I have to decide??? I am really bad a t decision making. :{

Allison said...

Wow! Decisions, decisions...I choose the silk peacock feather.

Simply beautiful. Here's hopin'!

the undomesticated wife said...

I've seen her store before..love it!

I love bird on a branch and red pods the best, though it's hard to choose because they are all sooooo beautiful! Great fabrics!

Rosanne said...

All the clutches are gorgeous but I do have to admit to a preference for the Red Ruby Rose original.

Halfpint said...

How could anyone possibly pick a favorite?

One of the peacock ones maybe? No, maybe the lotus & peony? Or the italian poppy. Bird on the branch is definitely a contender too. Or seedheads. Or the ethreal flower....

I could go on forever! Love them all!

That was almost impossible, since they are all so beautiful. Oh, my goodness, who wouldn't be thrilled to win one of these.
