Raffle ~~ One Lucky Winner

And it is so easy!

I really love making Felted Nesting Bowls and they seem to be rather popular. Not to mention the fact that they are very useful!

Nesting bowl sets are great at the home or office to keep all your tiny items organized. Everything from jewelery, buttons, paperclips and candy are right at home in these beautiful sets.

But when one of my customers got a set for her toddler to use as a stacking toy, it got me thinking. What a wonderfully soft, safe and educational toy!

So, I am going to get busy making some more sets and would love your input. And for your efforts one lucky winner will receive a $4 felted pin of their choice as a reward.

Simply leave a comment here (WITH your e-mail or etsy address) and comment on what color combinations, sizes and/or uses for nesting bowls you like and I will randomly select one lucky winner! It just couldn't be easier!

The winner will be selected on November 15 (Saturday) so the winner will have their pin in time for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

And don't forget to visit valeriesgallery.etsy.com to view more felted treasures!



I totally love the blues in the second picture, obviously, I would fill them with sea glass, lol!! Or shells maybe?

They really are fabulous. Your shop is wonderful, already in my favourites!

For my home, I would like classic deep red, navy blue and forest green. If I were to get a set for my little guy to stack then, I would like red, yellow and blue. Have fun hooking!

Val, I think bright colors would be great as they seem to draw children too them like a magnet. Also, maybe something like your snowman...when you stack it .....it makes something! Wouldn't that be kOOl!

Alternating the colors, seems that black, red, white are popular these days in baby toys.

I think your felted bowls are beautiful Valerie...I would love a stacking set with 1, 5, 10 on them for my grandson...he loves to collect change....it would be perfect to sit on his dresser!

I love your shop Val-you do beautiful work. I myself would love a set of them in burgandy colors-I could set them on my window sill above the sink so I can put my rings, watch and such in them while doing the dishes. Of course that would be after my new house is finished and I have a window sill above my sink!!!!

Beautiful work! I love felted things and it occurred to me that since I do not have a vehicle and go to all my shows by myself on public transportation that all my displays need to be light weight so that I can carry them myself. I would love some of these in rust, cream, and buckskin brown to use as browse bowls for earrings on cards that will not fit on my small earring rack, and they would also be great for bracelets, and rings too. The neutral colors would work well to go with many colors of jewelry.

Also, I think various shades of Moss and Olivine green would be very pretty too! Maybe you could try some nesting bowls that would gradually go from dark to light, each bowl a shade difference.

Your felted bowls are beautiful! I would favor a set in a green/turquoise/chocolate group. Ohhh or with needlefelted polkadots - I love polkadots!

I make some of my own jewelry, so I would use them to stash the findings like leverback and kidney wires, jumprings, and headpins.

I love those bowls! How fun! I have a lot of deep reds in my house, so I would go in that direction. I would use them as clutter keepers for my family! I am a neat freak and it would be a cute way to keep organized. Thanks for the chance!

Those nesting bowls are fabulous!! I love the yellow ones! So bright and cheery! I would probably fill them with shells. For my home, I love shades of green. :)

Felted nesting bowls are a great idea...as the mother of small children, I am always looking for unique and natural toys...perhaps you could do some in graduated colors/vibrantcies, i.e. blues, reds, etc. Keep up the great work...big fan of your Etsy shop.
