  1. I would get everything I can for $50.

  2. I subscribed by RSS

  3. I would use some of the money to buy bedding. It is all super cute! Love the green and white bedding! Also, I am doing the pattern challenge (whoops, I got obsessed and finished already!), and I am going to subscribe to your blog. I’ll post pics of the dress I made soon!

  4. Pillows!
    Lots of lovely pillows–or just one or two to start :0)

  5. Have you seen the Alessi Josephine Banana Kitchen Timer by Stefano Giovannoni and Rumiko Takeda?
    It’s hilarious! a monkey with banana earrings kitchen timer. I think Giovannoni has the greatest sense of ‘fun & functional’ in the kitchen!

  6. I would by a fabulous toy for Lilli! Maybe blocks, or an elephant?!

  7. I would definately buy some of their cool pillows. Mine are tired after too many years.

  8. I love this sight. I just spent a WHOLE lota time looking though all the things I want (now need). I guess if I had to narrow it down to just two things it would be the Alessi Paradise Bird Milkjug. I am in love with it and am already thinking of times when I could use it around other people.
    Or the lady bug scoot/ride on toy. I saw this at a playgroup the other day and asked the mom where she got it and she said it was a gift so she didn’t know. NOW I KNOW! Huzzah! I am so happy. . .happier if I win, though!

  9. I have been a subscriber to your blog for a while now. Ever since I won that darling ruffle top that I still adore. I have had so many compliments on it! Here is my entry number 2!

  10. I want to join in the pattern challenge but I guess it is too late or I am just not all there (blaming the pregnancy here) and I cannot figure out how to get the button to show up on my page. I want to start blogging about my challenge but I want the button up first.
    Also, I had a question: can we still participate if we use our own patterns? I don’t mind sharing some of the tutorials or changes I make to other patterns but I mostly sew from my own. Would this still count toward your challenge or are you looking for mostly pattern reviews?
    let me know. i want to do mine about maternity wear. I am pregnant now and would love to sew the following in the next few months:

    Maternity bathing suit
    Maternity skirt(s?)
    Maternity sleeping bra
    Maternity ‘belly band’

    • Not too late at all!!!! In fact there is NO time limit for this! Do it on your own schedule!

      Try this for the button (not sure why it wasn’t working?):

      Alternative Name

      of COURSE you can do your own patterns. It would be AWESOME if you shared them via tutorials, but we understand if you can’t do that. I just want to encourage people to make their own garments and to encourage each other in these endeavors!

  11. That chandelier inspired lampshade would be all mine…if I won. 🙂

  12. And it’s on my FB status, too! 🙂

  13. WOW! Hmmmm…Where to start.

    Blomus Faro Small Tealight Holders
    ZACK Chiare Candle Holder
    iittala Origo Orange Serving Bowl
    Blomus Esto Finger Food Set, 7 Piece
    Blomus Suavo Tea Caddy
    Alfi Modern Classic Shiny 0.94-Liter Cognac Thermal Carafe

    Just too many cool things to list. Thanks!

  14. Just added you to my Google reader!

  15. […] 6, 2010 · Leave a Comment Sarah at Come and See the Seitz is giving away a $50 shopping spree to , a wonderful website for modern furnishings […]

  16. Your giveaway has now been blogged about on my blog

  17. I love so many of these products, especially the Dwell Studio stuff. I’d probably pick the DwellStudio Transportation Backpack if they get them back in stock.

  18. I love the mini terrier pillows!

  19. I love their serving platters and dishes, so if I won I’d love to buy a few. One I like is the “iittala Teema 8.25″ Pasta Bowl Olive.”

  20. I would buy something with birds on it… I love bird silhouettes and branches.

  21. I’d love to have a couple of these pillows: “Bacati Metro Quilted Boudoir in Khaki and Chocolate” Such a great giveaway!!!

  22. the George Kovacs 5.5″ Wall Sconce in Brushed Aluminum with Blue Glass
    SKU #: gkv1283 is currently on sale for $49.90 with free shipping, so that would be what I would choose since it is a lovely shade of blue…

  23. I love the cake node bowl. Wow, they have such need things!

  24. I’m a follower!

  25. I’d buy the Molly Mutt Bird on a Wire Gusseted Dog Duvet
    we need a new cover for the dog bed!

  26. follow you!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. tweeted about it

  28. I would start with the birdie salt & pepper shakers that you have featured if I won! I am a birdie fanatic at the moment!

    (I’m already a follower…) Thanks for the chance to win!

  29. Thanks for hosting this give-away. Most of the items on the sight, though pretty, are way out of my price range. However, if I won I would get the paper clip holder porcupine.
    (There really is no rhyme or reason to it because I don’t even use paper clips enough to justify having a holder, it is just too cute!)

    And I would get the pencil holder critter to hold my fabric marking tools. (Though my boyfriend would probably snag it for his art pencils!)

  30. I have subscribed to your blog, via Google Reader.

  31. I joined the Pattern Challenge and will be posting a blog about it later this weekend, if not tonight.

    On that same note, if you are on Facebook please add me as a friend. My email address is you should be able to search for me that way. (When you add me please include a note letting me know it is you.)

    On my Facebook I have started a picture album with pictures of possible dress patterns I could use for my “Birthday Dress” in May. I am hosting a giveaway via the album. (I.e. vote for your favorite patterns (up to 3) and get an entry into the drawing for each vote.) The details are in my “notes” section on Facebook. So far I’ve only had one person vote, which is rather discouraging. It would be great to have others put in their say. …You will also see a picture of the silk I’ll be using.

  32. Okay here is a link to the blog post. I have also added your blog to my “Blog Roll” and put the Pattern Challenge badge on the side bar. This will be fun.

  33. So many choices! I think I would have to buy something for my home.

  34. Wow…so many cool things. I’d be torn on whether to spend it on the kids (the chalkboard wall vinyl), the dog (a pet bed) or one of the many, many things I want for myself!

  35. I’m nervous about it, but I’m going to join the pattern challenge! I’m a fairly new sewer and the only clothing I’ve ever sewn are pajama pants. I’d love to sew a dress for my daughter’s first birthday though, so I’m going to try that.

  36. I have no idea how I could possible decide what to buy. Probably a surprise for the husband.

  37. Great blog, love the color wheel quilt! I just subscribed.

  38. I follow your blog!

  39. I would pick the Teema Pasta Bowl in Red and the Alessi Cum Crano Salis Tray in Mirror Polished.

  40. I subscribed via bloglines.

  41. The Artecnica Midsummer Light would be my pick! I saw it in a Kids Magazine several years back and have wanted one ever since. Thanks.

  42. I am now following you… does that sound creepy?

  43. I would buy some of those pretty pillows, or maybe that chandelier, Im not sure too many to list all my likes….
    but prob the pillows…

  44. I definately want to join the pattern contest, i am new to sewing but really want to start learning to sew with a pattern!

  45. Awesome giveaway, Sarah!
    Upon visiting the site, I made a beeline for the lamps. I’m on a mission to find the perfect one at the perfect price. I really like the Lights Up! Oscar Boudoir Lamp, but I’m not sure about the color choices available. I’d prefer white.
    I really like the chalkboard you posted. Oh, there are so many choices. One could get lost there!

  46. I follow your blog in my Google Reader and have for a while. 🙂

  47. *And* I’m joining the Pattern Challenge! Psyched about it actually. I’m blogging about my goals today!

  48. […] Sarah is teaming up with by doing a giveaway to promote this project. Swing over there to […]

  51. I’ve joined a sew-in here,

    annemolino at hotmail dot com

  60. I subscribe

  61. I would like to buy the
    Chalkboard decal.
    Thank you.
    Happy Valentine’s Day

  62. I don’t even know where to start on what I’d get…having a dialup connection hinders the enjoyable looking process of deciding. But I know I would spend every penny of that $50!! I might even be nice and spend it on my sister for her upcoming birthday…I said MIGHT!!!
    PS I’m joining the pattern challenge and though I just found you through SewMamaSew–I’m following you too! THANKS!!

  63. Well it’s hard to say without browsing but mostly likely some wall decorations 🙂 I do like that chalkboard decal though!

  64. I visited several web sites except the audio quality for
    audio songs existing at this web site is really marvelous.

  65. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
