superdumb supervillain: I'm Fonda del Sol, are you?

Saturday, June 28, 2008

I'm Fonda del Sol, are you?

***WINNER PICKED 7/17 WITH RANDOM.ORG***
***CONGRATULATIONS, Mannequin!!!***
her comment... I covet the Pale Blue Botanicals. Having said this, I will also say that the one being given away to some lucky reader, is quite lovely!



We've definitely enjoyed the Flor in our den. It's been a great surface for Jasper to learn to crawl. It's easy to clean, even if your four year old spills an entire bowl of cereal and milk on it. Not that Roo would do that, of course. It's pretty and colorful.



But not nearly as colorful as the gorgeous new Alexander Girard La Fonda del Sol™ collection for Flor. It is stunning! And just as vibrant and modern today as when it was first designed in the early '60s. Remember, I told you it was coming? Well, we've got another terrific giveaway to celebrate the release of this classic design. There are four separate versions of the Alexander Girard La Fonda del Sol™ collection for Flor. (I'd love to have the Pequeno in my, umm, pequeno home office.) One lucky winner will receive the lovely Mandarina six-tile area rug in warm, sunshiney hues. (More than one set is shown here.)



To enter and win the gorgeous Mandarina six-tile area rug (a $160 value!), please comment on this post with your favorite Flor style.


Entries will be accepted through July 16th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win! Or, you may choose to check for your nickname at Prizey.Fetch, a new site that compiles winners in one convenient place:
