GIVEAWAY: Cows, Cheetahs, and Trays, Oh My!

I went to Kirkland’s last week to find a couple of gifts. I noticed they had some really interesting art, different from what I’ve seen there before. (Keep reading to find out how you can win $100 gift card from Kirkland’s!)

These embroidered linen pieces depicting leaves were really beautiful, and they could work alone or in a grouping.

Many of Kirkland’s latest art pieces feature a lot of interested texture. They carry a series of cow art, which are kind of a hot trend I’ve been noticing lately. Here’s a look at the texture close up:

Many of the pieces are partially hand-painted, which give a bit of dimension to what could have been typical printed art. I’m not really a cowgirl (I swear I’m not), but I kinda loved this particular cow. I think I may get it to hang in my girls’ new upstairs den:

Now look at the texture on this wild cat. It’s pieces of printed paper, maybe recycled? I think this could be cool in the right spot.

I’m still thinking about whether I want to buy that cow, but in the meantime I picked up the gifts I had come for. I like to give people personalized gifts, and monograms make it known that you hand-picked something special for them. Check out this gorgeous wooden tray:

I chose this for a friend who is also a decorator. Her daughter was having surgery, and I wanted to bring a few things by the hospital to cheer up a nervous momma. Interesting trays are so awesome because they are functional and add so much interest when creating vignettes for tabletops, so I thought she might this one with her initial.

Oh, and most girls appreciate a stack of decorating magazines for nervous waiting time in the hospital.

I also bought a couple of framed monograms with antlers for presents for a couple of my family members:

    I would love to win. Just moving into a new house and I’m thinking my old stuff might not look so great in a brand new house. :/

  2. June Pope says:

    I was also in Kirklands recently and thought they had some really unique things. Things I would love to buy with an extra $100. Thank you for the opportunity.

  3. Diane says:

    I would enjoy having the Turquoise Sadie Arch mirror in my living room. I live a mile from a Kirkland store and browse and purchase from this great place to shop.


  4. Sondra says:

    I recently updated our decor and bought several nice things from Kirklands’s. Believe me there were a lot more I wanted to take home with me . LOL Everyone should stop in and have a look around, there is always something new and interesting to see!

  5. Cherie says:

    I had not been to Kirkland’s for some years as it had moved out of the mall. Recently, I saw it again and went in to look around. I was pleasantly surprised that the new store is much more spacious than the old one. And I agree that the art work is pretty interesting. I did buy a piece of art which I’m very happy with, and it was very reasonably priced.

  6. Beth L says:

    Love that first cow & the textured shells, but they would definitely be more striking in a group. I see them on a soft turquoise wall.

  7. Cheryl B says:

    Love the Dylan Caribbean Accent Chair! I’m going to buy 2 of them for my living room. They’re just what I’ve been looking for and that blue will be beautiful with my browns and neutrals. All the customer reviews are favorable too!

  8. Elizabeth Scruggs says:

    Well this nervous mama sure appreciated her beautiful tray with magazines, and even more so, your visit. I love the new pieces you posted! Haven’t been in K in a couple of weeks– and that colorful tiger would sure make my girl happy! May have to snag that for the gallery wall I’ve started in her room:))

    LOVE the texture and colors in that sweet cow face. And can’t believe the huge size which I saw when I visited the Kirkland page showing the cow. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway. Never heard of Kirkland’s before and they look great!

  11. Pam C says:

    I never heard of this shop and googled it. They just put one in near me! I am going to have to check it out. What fun it would be to win this gift card and use it there!

  12. Vicky R says:

    Haven’t been there in awhile, cute stuff you shared. Will have to check it out. Having a $100 gift card would be fun to go shopping with!

  13. Dianne P. says:

    I really enjoy your blog. I refer to some of your posts when trying to get our decor right. I love the colorful cow picture from Kirklands.

  14. Mary CC from CA says:

    There is a Kirkland store near my town. I have never been inside but have always been curious to see what they have. I guess now I will have to go ! Thank you for featuring their store !

  15. Mel says:

    Love the monogram tray as a gift idea! So here’s a weird question: When buying as a gift, do you get the person’s first initial or last initial? (I never have this dilemma for myself, as my first and last are the same initial!) but I’d love to buy several of these as Christmas gifts!

    • Kristie Barnett says:

      Actually I’ve done both! For my decorator friend, I got the “E” tray because her first name is Elizabeth. The framed “B” print was for my in-laws’ anniversary, so I gave them the one for their last name, Barnett. I think you can go either way!

  16. Gretchen says:

    I Love, Love, Love Fred the Cow! I saw him at my last shopping trip with my sister. I have a perfect spot for him on my dining room wall!

    I have that exact cow painting ( the colorful one). I originally saw it in an expensive catalog (Graninroad maybe) and I didn’t want to pay that much for it. Then I found it at the Nashville Kirklands for half the price and I STILL debated purchasing it for a long time. I origianally purchased it for my kitchen dining area. My kitchen was white cabinets, gray walls, and rustic wood dining set. I loved it. I have since moved and now have white walls, black, white, and grey furniture and this offers a great pop of color. I still love it. Most men do not care for her, but I don’t care what they think. 🙂
