Puss Ann Guest GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

February 26, 2009

opera houseJust for Grosgrain, new sponsor Puss Ann will be offering a mother/child giveaway.

The lucky winner will receive their choice of shoes from Puss Ann in one adult and one child size.

The shoes featured, bear whimsical illustrations representing each of the seasons.

puss ann shoesEach motif matches in design, each having a radial pattern in the background (sun beams, leaves, star points and flower petals) and a main image in the foreground (a rose, acorn, fox and lady bug). Made with black ink with a solid coordinating color behind the pictures in woodblock style. When worn together, both pairs of shoes made a 'set' .

Hand designed by the artist behind Puss Ann, each shoe bears a unique graphic on the tip. Her storefront has a prolific gallery of designs with new shoe designs updated frequently.

So, if you have an image idea please send them an email or leave a comment in the guestbook (even if it's just to say hi).

Each shoe is unique with various vintage fabrics to compliment and line the sole.

puss ann shoesIf you're looking to customize here's the scoop. Her sweet and simple shoes come in lots of colors, sizes and designs.

First you can start with a color. With colors in Ruby red, Garbo green, Betty black, Posey pink and Bardot yellow you won't have a problem finding a hue to match any modest frock!

Reminiscent of Christopher Robin, Buster Browns and all things soft and vintage. I loved the unadorned look of these shoes paired with an a-line skirt.

On her site you'll find everything you need to customize your own pair. It's easy and fun!

SIZE 36 = size 5.5 - 6

SIZE 38 = size 7.5 - 8
SIZE 39 = size 8.5 - 9

SIZE 40 = size 9.5 - 10

Happy shopping!

About the photos.....This was a very interesting location. There were so many photo opportunities to be had. I would like to go back sometime in the summer and get some good photos by the scenic pond or lower level where hay bales line the walls.

puss ann shoesMolly had a ball running around all the empty space. Our house is small and fairly cluttered with furniture. I think she likes to really stretch out her legs whenever afforded the opportunity.

That or she wanted to get as far away from us as fast as she could:P

While taking the photos we brought along a 'Juno' LP and twirled, marched and danced to....Kimya Dawson & Antsy Pants. I think it's the perfect soundtrack for adults and kids. You know, when your tired of replaying 'The Wheels on the Bus'.

I burned it to a CD and the moment I pressed play Molly began baby dancing, which if you've ever seen, is more adorable than 1000 kittens.

puss ann shoesThis giveaway is for one week only! So last day for posts is Tuesday 3/03/09. Winner will be announced Thursday!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win these mother/daughter pairs of shoes just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.

bethieee said... Best Blogger Tips

My sister would love the idea of having her shoes match my niece's. They're always wearing the china flats like that and these are so much cuter than the standard images.
I hope I win!

vmsb said... Best Blogger Tips

FABULOUS!!! I love this post!! Next to your tree-frog this is my favorite.

I created a link (and hope to win), but also hope that you know how much I love reading about your outings and seeing the fun you have with your girls - your posts and photography is inspiring! I think your photographs are amazing; I hope you had as much fun as the pictures illustrate.

I also love your skirts - I think the twirling is part of what I enjoyed so much about this post. Is there any chance you'll part with those someday or add to your store? (Sorry the store link is down and I can't remember if I've seen you tiered skirts there or not).

Thanks for letting me know about some adorable, affordable, comfy-looking flats. I love Mary Janes and stopped wearing heels almost six months ago - my "collection" of flats consists of one Ruby pair of ballet-like Crocs and original brown suede Birkenstocks (and I work outside the home full-time), so yes, I know that I desperately need a shoe makeover ... thanks again for the nudge and great information.
