Poetry gave me beautiful “book” mobiles ….

I saw these wonderful mobiles made from books at the Poetry Store – they are gorgeous, and when you look at them, each “element” is made from a folded book’s pages.  The mobiles are designed by the multi-talented Shaw Sisters.

SHAW SISTERS was founded in 2010 by sisters Angela Shaw of Koop Design and Janet Shaw of The Zulu Beadwork Project, both based in Durban.

We love handmade product and our vision is to identify, source and develop quality crafted goods for South African and international markets.

The mobile has brown satin ribbon joining the elements and it is exquisite.

I did a giveaway a little while ago, and I was really disappointed that there were so few people/readers who wanted one.  I only got two comments – thus two entries.  I thought there would be more people who would love to take home one of these mobiles.

I received my mobiles today, and I am so thrilled, thank you very much Poetry.

The nice folks at Poetry said that both Alexandra and Amy can pop along to their nearest Poetry Store and collect a mobile each.

Alexandra and Amy, please let me know which Poetry Store is closest to you so that I can let the store manager know, and if you would let me have your full names and contact numbers so I can give them to the store managers.

Enjoy the mobiles – your book club will platz when they see them!
