Takara Gallery Art Tee Giveaway!

{I love my "the hooties" art tee!}

{Takara translates to "treasures" in English - love it!}

{Giveaway items: alphabet shirt in medium & the hooties in large}

I was super excited when Maho Kamimura, the adorable owner of the Japanese shop Takara Gallery, offered to send me a couple shirts from her art tee collection. A quick glance at the collection, which features work by artists around the globe, and I was immediately smitten with two designs in particular: "The Hooties" by Mariah Piesse and the untitled alphabet tee by Mari Doigawa. Lucky for my readers, Maho was kind enough to send one shirt for yours truly and two for a giveaway! Yay!

So, without further adieu, here's what you need to do to enter to win: Leave me a comment telling me which art tee you'd like to win and what you like about the design. For the record, the Hooties shirt is a large, while the alphabet tee is a medium. If you tweet about the giveaway you'll receive another entry - just be sure to leave an additional comment that includes your Twitter handle.
.
All entries must be submitted by Sunday at 12am PST. The giveaway is limited to United States residents - sorry international readers, but since I'm footing the bill on the shipping I've got to keep my out-of-pocket costs down.

Come Monday, I'll pick & announce the two winners, who will be selected using a random number generator. Good luck! Oh, and a big thanks to Maho for donating two shirts for Bows & Sparrow's very first giveaway! So exciting!

These tees are absolutely adorable, fun and vintage-y and still modern. While I am submitting an entry for the alpha tee, I love them both! I collect vintage typewriters and have a penchant for typography. So fun! I also love the owls... my grandmother collected owls and it reminds me of her china cabinet. Thanks for sharing these fun graphics.

I want to win the Hooties T!

Thank you. Very interested in the Hooties tee. I like it because the owls look like they don't know how they feel.

My daughter's class are the OWLS! And I love the tee. And I am an avid follower of the blog. And I'm just cool and hardworking and deserve to win something. :-)

Ooh, I would love the hooties shirt. My grandfather was a bird watcher and collected the most beautiful owl pieces. When he passed away last year I inherited them. I have started to add to his owl collection to carry on his memory, including an adorable pillow I picked up at CB2 recently!

I love both of the designs, but I'd particularly like to win the alphabet shirt to give as a gift to my sister. I love the soft green color and the intricately illustrated letters.

Monica said...

Yay for giveaways... thanks Erin! I love that little owl one too!

Oh so fun! I love the hooties shirt- cute owl illustrations. I also just got back from NY for the International Comtemporary Furniture Fair and Stationary Show. You would have loved them both! (met up with Christina as well-so fun)
