Swiss Miss Pillow Give Away

I've been dying to make something just like this for about two months and think that I'll be making something really similar for myself soon. This one, however, is for you!

Its a 12" pillow made from 100% natural linen and pink cotton, stuffed with poly-fil, and sewn shut. All you have to do is leave a comment with a report on the weather in your town today. I want to know its colder somewhere else than it is in Missouri.

Comments will be open until Wednesday evening when I'll let Brett pick a winner. Make sure to leave a link to your blog or your e-mail so I can get in touch with you before the 19th.

I've got some fun news tomorrow so check back if you're at all interested in holiday projects I've been working on.

EDITED: Due to shipping costs, the give away is open to U.S. residents only. My apologies to the international readers.

It is cold and rainy here in Nashville - they say freezing sleet is on the way.

Miss Wanderlust said...

First comment! Yes!! I also live in Missouri, St. Louis and the weather outside is frightful. I am an art teacher though and so that means a snow day for me :) Happiness!

MandieGirl said...

It's snowing in Albuquerque-the first "real" snow of the season! 31 degrees. It's almost freezing! ;)

well it was relatively mild here in ontario (just outside toronto) until about noon when i was on my break from work and then walking it was bitterly cold. the kind of cold where you have your mittens, toque, parka on and yet every bone in your body is still freezing. canada, i tell ya!!

ps: this pillow is adorable!

love.

in northern illinois: 10 degrees, but feels like -4. it was 49 last night and rainy and the temperature dropped more than 50 degrees in a 10-hour period... so, my ABS breaks have never gotten such a workout as today. slip, slip sliding all around.

It's hard to explain the weather here in Kingwood, TX - this morning I walked out to 70 degree, humid air...after being inside for about two hours I walked into a frigid 59 degrees! My boyfriend goes to school in Missouri (Springfield), and he is so loving the weather back in Houston. Is it iced over where you are? He left this past Saturday so he didn't experience the absolutely freezing weather. PS - Are you still sticking it out without your heater??

Andy said...

today started off warmer for december but has now turned rainy and getting colder. just yucky. wishing for blue skies even if cold does some with it

Brr! What?! Is this the dismal rainy Pacific Northwest? No. Can't be. Because right now we have snow, sun glare, and a side of sideways wind gusts. And my neighbors tires are spinning out as he drives up the road...

Fabulous pillow. I love it so.

Wearing turquoise scrub pants today! Yeah! I think I need another layer, though.

and i like the linen with a bit of pink!

*mindi* said...

it's -5 here in Iowa.

BRRRRR!

love the pillow! i've made about 5 pillows for the couch this week, and I still need 3 more. this one would blend in quite nicely :)

Heidi Joe said...

I'm in Tulsa, so its probably pretty similar to Missouri. My car said 17 degrees on the way home from work, and my friend told me with wind chill it's -4.

It's days like this that I keep asking myself why we moved here from California!

clairehelene7 said...

It started today at 51 degrees and when I went out for lunch it was 30 degrees. We're due for freezing rain and snow tonight. :) Whee!

Alamodey said...

Here in Tacoma it is sunny (what?!) and 30 degrees. In my drafty, 100+ year old house, it feels not much warmer than that. Teacher hubby had a two-hour delay, but I'll have to brave the elements later for derby practice. What a day!

Jenna said...

I don't think my comment posted....
I'm from Manitoba, Canada, so I know I'm not eligible but I'd still like to tell you how cold it is here. -30 degrees celsius. -46 degreess with the windchill. Our zero is farenheit 32. And we're at minus 46. Ridiculous.

Jessica said...

Oh I love pink!

In Bedford (Dallas) it's 30 degrees. Yesterday we had a gorgeous 80 degree day!

Mother Nature was buttering us up for the sh*t she's about to throw our way!

Stay warm!

Here in Santa Cruz, CA it's about 60 degrees and partly cloudy. It's rather silly.

alittlebitofscrap said...

It was 10 below yesterday why my mother and I were out taking pictures of Alaskan scenery. I had to keep the truck running and roll the window down for most of the pictures. Will post some pictures later...

According to weather underground it is 13 above right now :) and we are getting some snow right now too...

Hope that makes you feel better :)

Danielle said...

We are having some skitsofrenick weather here in Kansas City. It went from almost 60 yesterday to 3 degrees this morning! Are you kidding me?

Chelsea said...

I'm in Lawrence, KS and it's COLD. It says it's 9 degrees out, but there's also wind. I went to make some enlargements at Kinko's earlier and thought my ears would freeze off. Oh, according to weather.com it feels like -4. I hate the cold wind {and I LOVE that pillow!}

Jenny said...

It's windy and rainy day here in Buffalo, NY. A balmy 35 degrees. LOVE the pillow!

AndiMae said...

It has been between 0 and 10 degrees here in eastern Washington for the last couple of days! I grew up on the rainy westside of the state and just moved here last year, so I am definitely not used to this cold of weather!!

P.S. Your little pillow is so sweet!

Trina Curran said...

My cat is freezing his little kitty toes when he tries to go out with the dog...LOL...30 frigid degress in McKinney, TX. Brrrrr....but I love it!

it is so so so cold in michigan. so cold that even though the sun came out in the afternoon, it kept snowing!

Such a cute pillow! It is pretty cold here (well, for Texas anyway). We might even have a snow/sleet day tomorrow which only happens once every few years.

take care!

Allie said...

This morning, in Springfield, Illinois, we woke up to ice over everything. The sun came out but didn't melt enough of it. This evening the temp is 13 but it feels like zero with the windchill.

Stay Warm.

mama*thayer said...

Ugh...unfortunately I also live in the frigid Missouri. I go to Mizzou and had a final today. By the time I got to the exam, my face was so cold that it felt like someone punched me in the forehead. Does that ever happen to anyone else?

it is currently -7 degrees here in sunny colorado... it just feels right to be this cold this time of year...i actually love it because I can bundle up in layers of clothes, drink a hot cup o' joe, sit under a toasty blanket, and knit away!

Manda said...

Well, it's a comfortable yet toasty 85 degrees here in Bangkok while back home in Seattle it's snowy and freezing. Funny thing is, I would love to have that right now :)

Love that pillow, Rachel! Well, it's freezing here in Fresno. I'm actually watching the news right now and the high tomorrow is supposed to be 45. Believe it or not {I can't!!} but it's actually supposed to SNOW here!! I'm sure if it does, it will be only a little, and won't stick, but you know.

Today it *H-A-I-L-E-D* like you wouldn't believe!! And it did stick around for awhile. Crazy for Fresno.

Today was sunny, but stil cold.
Right now it's -12 [-27 with the wind chill.]

well actually, the weather here in baton rouge, la, was a balmy 75 degrees...but only 4 days ago, we had a freak snow storm (well, to us it was a storm)...we haven't had real snow this far south in almost 20 years, and we hadn't had that much (10 inches where i live!) in over 50! it was crazy!

Kendall said...

Here in Charlotte, it is 70 degrees and sunny. What kind of December weather is that?

Oh, today I didn't even wear a coat! So bizarre! It was raining all day, kinda... dreary, but pleasingly warm!

OHHHH And you are NOT gonna believe this! (maybe I'm just getting over excited here!) but the word verification is ralin. That's RAIN, if you take out the l. :)

Penny said...

I'll have to diasappoint you on this one...it reached the 80's today. But it's actually been pretty cold. It got down in the 40's one night, which is REALLY cold for South Florida! Especially when you don't even own a coat.

miss money said...

it's humid and warm in alabama. no big surprise. nothing like wishing for snow on christmas and waking up to tshirt weather.

26 degrees and dropping here in sunny kenmore, washington! although if you watched the news you'd think we we had the coldest weather in the country... although i'm not complaining after reading these comments! :)

Julie said...

i'm also in st. louis, but i am a student and i did not have a snow day. it took me an hour and a half total to pry open the doors to my old camry, defrost the windows, and drive (verrry slowly) to school! tomorrow there is supposed to be sleet and snow, so i'm keeping my fingers crossed for a snow day!

Julie (again) said...

oh and my e-mail is julierechtien@yahoo.com !

hollysarah said...

I see Jenna already posted... (we live a couple blocks away). I'm also ineligible for the giveaway, being from Manitoba. Today there was a lot of school divisions cancelled because of extreme windchill... we're talking you could die outside people! The coldest it's been yet... -46 degrees celcius. As Jenna put it well... ridiculous.

It was warm enough to melt all of our snow yesterday and it got to like 15 degrees today! The wind was so intense, too.

Jenny daisy_luv55@hotmail.com said...

Oh Northern Canada weather. -25 degrees Celsius in my small town in Alberta. Blue skies and air so cold when you breathe in you cough. It's the perfect weather to spend by the fire reading a book, which is what I did today. Yummy winter.

katie mae said...

okay. so im a little biased - i'll give you that - but i say nowhere is colder than missouri. (i am refusing to look at the weather map and going with my gut on this one)

i mean we got some seriously friggin cold weather right now.

i realize we're living in the ice age when i refuse to leave the house without my long underwear making my outfit 3-5 layers thick.

good news-we can finally wear those cute snow boots we wait all year to wear. :)

cute pillow :) hoping on your behalf and my own that missouri changes it's mind and decides we need some sunshine to accompany us this winter season.

best wishes.

Currently it is -3 F and we have wind chills that make it feel 15 below zero. We are also suppose to get up to 6 inches of snow by tonight! But I am used to it, I have lived my whole life in Wisconsin.

Karen said...

It snowed all yesterday, so beautiful. Now it's 7 a.m. on Tuesday and everything is still covered in white. I'm originally from Hawaii so I can understand your yearning for a real, cold Christmas. Even though it was freezing I had to go stand in the snow last night, just to experience how hushed everything gets.

Icy cold freezing rain in Boston :(

That pillow is adorable though!

pinkstreet said...

In Lubbock, Texas, it's about 30 degrees, and infallibly, the wind is blowing on top of that. After two minutes outside, I begin to wonder if my nose is still attached to my face.
(Also, what a fantastic pillow! My husband claims Swiss ancestry, so I think he'd love it too, despite its charming pinkness.)

This is SO cute! Today is in the high 30's and it was raining this morning, but they are saying it will be snowing tonight and they expect the temp to drop so we will be chilly here in Mass, too.

i live in lincoln, nebraska in a really old apartment, and sometimes at night when it's chilly enough, the windows creep open by themselves. i woke up this morning with snow in my room - it was really pretty, but really really cold!

It's very darling, and the weather here is the same as the weather there. :)

Sorry I can't make you feel any better, but it's unseasonably warm here in NC this week ... temps nearing 70. It's way overcast and cloudy today, though. I'm a northeasterner originally, so I'm somewhat missing the cold weather -- it just doesn't feel like Christmas when it's so warm out. Thanks for hosting such a generous giveaway!

Katherine said...

it's 40 degrees and raining in northern california. hope you and your family are keeping warm!

Lexi said...

Love that pillow!!!
I'm not too far from you--NIXA--so our weather is the same :( I am of the opinion if it is going to be this cold it should be snowing! Especially this time of year! Whaddaya think??

It is snowing with a winter storm advisory for this afternoon and it is like a high of 22 today. The pillow is wonderful!

I'm in the Virginia Beach area and the weather has been a little crazy! Almost 70 yesterday and 45 today. I think it's supposed to go up and down again later this week. I don't think we'll be having a white Christmas this year but our fingers are crossed anyway!

San Joaquin Valley in CA ~ 45°F
50% chance of T-storms. The weather channel says tonight will bring the threat of freezing
temperatures (26-28° Brrr!)wherever clouds dissipate Bad for fragile vegetation :( great for a valley thats been dealing with a drought :)

LOVE the pillow! Okay, it is 7 degrees and snowing here in Des Moines. Wind chill makes it much colder. It's Starbucks weather. Just don't spill it.

The pillow is so cute!

Tamara said...

Oh my goodness the pillow is so cute. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba and the weather has been absolutely frigid. We have experienced low temperatures of -29 degrees celsius however that isn't bad until you factor in the windchill which has taken us down to -42 degrees celsius. Brrrrr..... Stay warm. Cheers,
Tamara

Augh! It was a HIGH of 3 degrees here in western MN today, yesterday the wild chill made it feel like -36!! And we've been getting a ton more snow. I'm sure that cute pillow would help warm my house up!!

Leslie said...

Well, here in Wyoming we hit a new record with -20 below. Brrrr. Luckily it seems to be getting a bit nicer...meaning it's now above zero degrees. :) I love the pillow and I'm so happy to have found your blog through Flickr.

Kristine said...

I am in Seattle, WA and it coooold. It is supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow night...pretty rare for Seattle.

It was chilly here in San Clemente CA today. Not any rain like we had yesterday. If I drive down my street I can see the Ocean and it was so clear I could see Catalina. It was so pretty!

Elaine said...

Hey there Rachel, first of all, the pillow is gorgeous! Gorgeous, yet sweetly simple. :] i love it so much.

The weather here today got to a low of like.... 11 degrees I think. That's probably colder than Missouri I would expect! It snowed and blizzard...ed? all day here today and then freezing rain at night. yuck. Kids here at college were "ice skating" in their sneakers on the sidewalks. hahaha

How cute!! You've got so much craftiness in ya :)

Here in Norfolk, VA, it's probably not colder than you...sorry! It's 44 out today, with a high of 69 for the day.

Leslie said...

I live in Kansas and we're currently in the deep freeze! We had 3-4 inches of snow yesterday and it was bitterly cold. There might be a bit of sun today but we're expecting freezing rain/snow again tomorrow. This is NOT my kind of weather :-)

bettyninja said...

Okay- it's probably not the coldest- in fact- doesn't really even feel too cold but it is currently 21 degrees in NH and snowing. Better than the 3 inches of ice we got over the weekend that knocked out power to half the state though. Love the little pillow!

Lindsey said...

We live and Texas and don't really know snow. It flirts with us a couple times of year but leaves us unsatisfied and wanting for more.

Hubby and I want to live some place with actual seasons one of these days.

Michelle said...

Oh that pillow is super cute. I would love it since I spent a week in Switzerland this year. As for the weather, it got down to about 34* last night here on the coast of Northern Cali!

Jackie said...

In Baltimore we had freezing rain over night and today it's back up in the mid-40's. I'm sure it's not as cold as Missouri but these ups and downs are driving me crazy!

I love the pillow!! Here's hoping I get picked!!
