Tumbleweeds Sunglasses GIVEAWAY // Win A Pair of Limited Edition Melissa Sunglasses, Worth $145!

Tumbleweeds Sunglasses Giveaway

A couple of days ago, I posted about an outfit I wore in Santa Fe that included a very special pair of sunglasses.  These sunglasses (called "The Melissa") were part of a collaboration between myself and my absolute favorite glasses crafters, Tumbleweeds Handcraft. The owners Beca and Doug are really amazing people who also happen to be ridiculously talented, so needless to say, I was very honored when they approached me about co-designing a pair of sunnies.  And I was blown away (seriously) when I saw the finished product.  The silver-outlined turquoise triangles, three-toned wood style, and overall craftsmanship couldn't be more perfect. 


Beca and Doug produced a very limited collection of this design which were featured on Fab.com and are now available in their Etsy shop.  They also allowed me to choose a charity to which 10% of sales would be donated.  I chose my favorite nonprofit, Grey Muzzle - an incredible organization devoted to improving the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue groups, and sanctuaries.  This was truly one of my all-time favorite collaborations, and I couldn't be more grateful to Tumbleweeds for asking me to be part of it.  (Beca and Doug, you guys freaking rock.  For real.)


And now for the best part...  Thanks to Tumbleweeds, one of you is going to win your very own pair of limited edition Melissa Sunglasses, worth $145!  


This giveaway is open to all Bubby and Bean followers/subscribers.  (If you're a new reader, just make sure to subscribe first using GFC or one of these readers). Then just leave a comment with your favorite item in the Tumbleweeds shop!


Once you've completed the mandatory entry above, you can also gain one additional entry for each of the following.  (*Please put each extra entry in a SEPARATE comment in order for it to count).
  • Like Tumbleweeds on Facebook 
  • Follow Tumbleweeds on Twitter (please list your username) 
  • Follow Beca's blog, Tales of a Tumbleweed 
  • Tweet this:  Win a pair of Melissa Sunglasses by @tumbleweedsshop in Bubby & Bean's latest GIVEAWAY!  >> http://bit.ly/c6j9XX via @MotM_EcoFashion 
  • Pin an image from this blog to Pinterest (please leave the link to your pin).

This giveaway is open through October 16th. The winner's name will be randomly chosen and announced shortly after.  Thank you again to the wonderful Beca and Doug of Tumbleweeds Handcraft for inviting me to part of such a rad collaboration, and for giving Bubby and Bean's readers the chance to win these special specs!

I'm heading out of town again today to spend a few days in one of my favorite cities: Austin, Texas!  Robbie will be there for work (the band is playing Austin City Limits on Friday), and his parents will be flying in to join us at his brother's for his dad's birthday celebration.  I'll be working while I'm down there, but because I have a hard time resisting requests to play from our nieces and nephew, a couple of my blog pals will be filling in for me here Thursday and Friday.  Their posts are pretty amazing, so make sure you check in and show them some love.  You can also follow my Austin travel adventures via Twitter and Instagram (user name bubbyandbean).  And if you'll be at ACL, come say hello!  I'll be in and out of the fest, but have solid plans to be at the Umphrey's McGee show on Friday (that's Robbie's band) and Neil Young (!!!) on Saturday.  I'll be back here on the blog Monday!  Have a great rest of the week!

  79. Ok, I definitely cannot resist entering this giveaway either. I don't feel so bad though since I didn't win the last 2 giveaways I entered haha : ] Another chance to win a truly awesome product? I'm in! Especially since I've been eyeing their sunglasses for quite awhile now, even knowing I'd never be able to afford them. You all are so generous to be giving these away! And I hope this design earns lost of donations for Grey Muzzle! : ]

    On to the entry! My favorite item in their Etsy shop has got to be...oh shoot I can't choose just one...I like the Handcrafted Wooden Sunglasses Purple Heart Veneer Eyewear, Sid's Turquoise Faced Sunglasses Wayfarer, the heart framed ones, and actually I really like the Melissa one too!
