Giveaway :: Anna Joyce

Monday, June 4, 2012

Hello, June! We’ve been waiting here for you, ever so patiently. Now that you’re here, let’s get this party started, shall we? First up on the agenda: entertaining. Isn’t there something about the start of June that begs for dinner parties, backyard bbqs, random afternoon potlucks? I start to plan all sorts of summer soirees once I notice that yes, indeed, Here Comes the Sun(shine.) This is also the time of year I start to celebrate color. From my home decor to my closet to my fingertips, I celebrate the sun with every shade in the rainbow.

Anna Joyce  knows color and how to use it. From gorgeously printed textiles to hand-appliqued apparel, each piece in the collection sings with joy and celebration. These are the kinds of items that make you feel special, as though every day is worth celebrating. This Liberty Tumbling Vine Hoodie is perfect for those cool summer nights in the backyard. And I want every single color available in these Hand Printed Cotton Pillows. The sun is shining and Anna Joyce knows how to capture it. Shine on.

Anna Joyce is giving away one set of six napkins (in the winner’s choice of either Sunshine Yellow or Crimson Vine) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Monday, June 11th. Comments now closed…good luck!

    I have so many… it is difficult not to be inspired by all the incredible fruits and berries that suddenly appear everywhere when the sun gets hotter! If I have to pick only one, I must say freshly cut papaya with a squeeze of lime or lemon. Taste-wise, it is the perfect imitation of what summer feels like. 🙂

    Wow, I love the yellow ones! They’re perfect.
    My favorite summer snacks are cherry tomatoes, fresh from the vine, still warm from the sun. Doesn’t get any better than that.

    Thanks for your giveaways!

    I make a springtime pasta salad that is perfect in the summer! filled with lemon, cherry tomato and asparagus, I love to make it every June as asparagus reaches its best flavor!
    In addition my newest obsession is rosemary raisin crips,, spread with just a little bit of cold and creamy goat cheese. I just love it!

    Summertime brings me back to those super fun kid snacks… ants on a log (PB + celery + raisins!). Bring out the kid at heart! 🙂

    Alison Rowan says:

    My favourites are those rocket popcicles—You know the ones. Magenta, purple and green all layered on top of one another, so if you’re careful, you can bite through one layer at a time, while keeping the one beneath it perfectly intact. As a kid, I thought this edible challenge was the greatest thing to ever grace my summer… and as an adult, not much has changed.

    Kristen Hughes says:

    I love a giant wine glass of half moscato-half diet ginger ale with a handful of frozen fruit tossed in. It makes me feel almost fancy. Like I should be wearing a big huge white floppy hat or something.

  23. 23

    Any fruit and plain greek yogurt.
    These napkins are lovely

    Sarah P says:

    The FL heat is killer but the farmers markets make up for it ten fold. My favorite summer snacks are spoils from the produce stand.

    Coconut ice cream!

  36. 36
    Natalie says:

    Summer is full of bounty from the California fields.  My favorite by far is a freshly picked beefsteak tomato chopped, and laid on sourdough slathered with mayonnaise, and garnished with freshly cracked pepper.

    Linnea says:

    Heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil from my garden, with a dash of balsamic vinegar. I wait all year for this treat!

    MANGOMANGOMANGO. In India, we can’t wait for Mango season to come around. Oh the lusciousness of it all! Ice-cream is a close second, though. Great heat buster!

    Kate B says:

    I do a happy dance when I spot the first cherries of the season in the grocery store. And then I make a frowny face at the exorbitant price they always are selling for at first. Then a few weeks later, the price comes down and I get a giant bag. My momma is proud that I grew into a lady who likes to snack on fruit! (This is not to say I don’t still have Easter candy squirreled away, because I do. This is real life. But I cannot WAIT for afternoon snacks of cherries!)

    Stella says:

    It’s so not grown up of me or very healthy, but if I’m honest a giant styrofoam cup of Big Red soda over crushed ice. Reminds me of my childhood summers in Texas better than anything else!
