snuggle down with this IKEA G I V E A W A Y

Greetings all,
It's IKEA G I V E A W A Y time again!!  Yahoo.  As Australia starts to get chilly in Autumn, it's snuggle time.  What better way to embrace the looming Winter months than with some pretty new bedlinen??
 Remember that really fun IKEA sleepover i was lucky enough to attend a few weeks back, sleeping over night in the bedding department at the Sydney IKEA store . . . well i can assure you the bedlinen is beautiful, comfortable & well priced too.
 The good PR people at One Green Bean & IKEA would love to offer 3 sets of ALVINE KVIST percale bedlinen sets to my followers.  Each set includes a queen 200x200cm Quilt Cover & 4 Pillow Slips, valued at $89.  Yes 3 to GIVEAWAY.

Lucky winners - all 3 of you - to be drawn 9p.m. on Sunday 8th May (Mother's Day) - a nice back up gift just in case you don't fair well in the Mother's Day gift stakes!! 
I'd love to know which room in your home this beautiful bedlinen will liven up & who will be snuggling down under it.  How do you stay cosy in Winter - under a doona, next to a roasting fire, hot chocolates . . . I can assure you, i miss my husband more than ever in our brrrr Canberra Winter, he's my giant hot water bottle & chief hot chocolate brewer.  Good luck, love Posie

Oh how lovely. I have a queen bed and would love to snuggle under some new bed linen :) I love to take a head bag to bed in the winter to warm my toes. I find if my feet are cold I just never get warm!

Oh who wouldn't love something warm and cosy...I'm not sharing if I win...well not with the smalls anyway.

Mystica said...

Would love to be counted in for this. Ideal time for this giveaway.

Amy said...

Pick Me! Pick Me! We are in need of some new bed linen.
In winter you will find me in some uber attractive wool bed socks under as many blankets as I can manage! It doesn't even get that cold where I live, but it gets cold enough for me!

Tammi said...

Ooh look at that gorgeous bedding!! It would be a fight in our home as to who would get to snuggle under it :)

There is nothing I like more than snuggling up with my man in the winter months, while I love the weight of blankets they are not nearly as warm as he is...and don't even get me started on toast warming 'real' hot chocolate with marshmallows to chase away the winter blues.

Alex said...

Oh gosh there is nothing better than smuggling under some clean linen on a cold night isn't there! What a fantastic giveaway :)

Kerryanne English said...

Gorgeous linen from my fav store of course, as you well know Jennie... lol.
Great giveaway,
Kerryanne

The Moerks said...

Oh I love the pattern. I shall be snuggling with my hubby, 19 years of marriage we will celebrate this year. In this day and age I reckon that deserves to be celebrated. Perhaps with new linen?

yardage girl said...

What a lovely, and well timed giveaway - perfect for curling up with a good book or two! Nic x

deux chiens et un garcon said...

as an old ikea employee(mid 80's) i still feel connected to those cheery sheets and doonas.

so lovely for you to offer as a giveaway.

I love sun dried sheets, warm bath to get all nice and crispy clean and then rubbing my feet along the goodness and snuggling down. Little man still loves his ealry moring visit/breast feed to begin our days.

Wishing you lots of man cuddles in the near future and for all your dreams to come true.

Frances said...

I would love to win some new bed linen. I have a built in hot water bottle in my best mate, my husband so this would be for our bedroom!!! Thanks for the chance.

Frances said...

Second chance - have put on my facebook page

Tanya said...

nice one, it's cold here tonight and I am moving the sewing machine into the lounge room where the fire is!

Kim said...

I LOVE ikea bed linen, but never seem to end up with it in my trolley at the check out :(

If i was to win one of these gorgeous sets it would go on our bed to replace our current quilt cover that we were given for our wedding.....yikes, 7 years ago!

Pamela said...

I need new linen. I live in area too and recently upgraded my qb Quilt (Kids had vomited on it once too many times), a new cover would be awesome.

Shannynbree said...

This would be perfect for snuggling up with ...my 15 year old dog Raffles!! He so likes to get cosy in the cold weather!!

Shelley said...

Oh new bed linen - how delicious! Is there anything better than snuggling under new sheets (or freshly washed sheets?). I've already started my winter tradition with the cooler nights hitting us here in Melbourne. Heated wheat bag (that I used while pregnant and have such a sentimental attachment to!), flannel pj's, and striped explorer socks. Not a pretty sight, but it makes for a very warm and cosy winter!

Prim and Pretty said...

How sweet would that be to win. Im just about to paint my Queen Anne bed and dressing table from Shabby chic white .....to Black. This would just be perfect. Have been putting off new bed linen for sometime. I always take something hot to bed!

Leah said...

So pretty! It'd be on my bed for sure - with my quilts and flannelette sheets under it.

Mikaela said...

At the moment I'm sleeping with a coverless doona, so this would be perfect for me =P What keeps me warm? Like you Posie, hubs is good, but we also have the two labs and kitty cat snuggle with us on a weekend morn under the covers in our big bed, it is bliss! We are savouring these moments now as I guess it will all change in 4.5 months when baby #1 comes along...

Jenny said...

What a lovely giveaway, please count me in. I will happily snuggle down with new bedlinen any day, I love bed linen. Hope you had fun at the sleep over. ;-)

Tas said...

Oh, can't remember the last time we had new bed linen. Generous giveaway!

Patchwork and Play said...

My husband and I would be snuggling under this fabulous bed linen! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kylie B said...

Sigh, if only we had an IKEA in Canberra :-( While I have A LOT of IKEA things in my home as yet I don't have any sheets. Would love for your competition to change that! As for my favourite way of getting cosy and warm in winter, it's a toss up between my ugg boots and my electric blanket.

Kate said...

Lovely! There's nothing like new linen to freshen up a room and make me feel not so miserable about the cold weather...

Naomi said...

I sooo love to go shopping at IKEA and would love to win this! I would put it on our bed for sure and hubby and I would love to snuggle under it. I can see myself with a hot chocolate and many books loving these covers. Great giveaway! Naomi x

sue niven said...

How exciting! I would Love that bedding! Count me in please!

Seaweed and Raine said...

When the cold sets in, I either sit around the heater with a hot drink and a snuggly throw, or dive under a doona and pull it up round my ears if it's freezing cold (preferably with my live hot waterbottle beside me).

Jane said...

Oh, Jennie, you gorgeous girl! As you know, this would just be the most perfect way to dress our bed on our new house! Sigh. Crossing fingers and toes. J x

Jane said...

Oh, and I've just added you to my sidebar, Jennie. Just a quickie - when does it close? J x

megan banks said...

I am so jealous that you got to go to a sleepover at IKEA! OMG, I am such an ikea junkie...it's sort of my guilty secret. Love your blog btw.

Megs said...

What a great giveaway! I love snuggling up on the couch with a cosy cardigan, thick socks, a Chai latte and the heater on, usually with some craft or magazine in my hand. Can't wait for it to get really snuggled up cold!

designed to a T said...

Hi Jennie, of course I have to enter this giveaway. IKEA my second home!

I'm a doona girl, so love to snuggle down deep to keep warm. These would look great on the spare bed for anyone how comes to visit. Nothing like nice new bed linen for visitors.

The sleepover sounded great! Hope you had a good time...T

Heading off to Tweet and FB about you, and I'll put a giveaway icon on my sidebar for you.

AllIsClear said...

Looks lovely... if I win I'm gonna give it to my sister-in-law in Tasmania so you don't have to international-postage-crazy. She's a top girl.

little love said...

Oh my god! You're so lucky! I love Ikea! In fact, when I was pregnant with LIly & we were looking at names I suggested Ikea. Yes, serious! My ratinale was that I love Ikea so much it makes sense! My husbnad thought not! xx

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

What you got to sleep there? Omg how fun is that!
I love the bedding, I would use it in our guest room!!!
XOXO
Kristin

SandyN said...

Sandyn

Jackie said...

The bedlinen would be perfect to give my room a mini make over just as Winter gets here. I'm sure hubby and our little dog would appreciate it too?

Amy @ Flowerflame said...

Oh lovely! Who doesn't love some new linen on their bed, nothing quite like it!
Perfect timing for those cold winter months that are just around the corner! xx

brismod said...

Please count me in for your giveaway. New bed linen would be perfect for my new old blanket!! xx

Lgshazza said...

Perfect timing. I love snuggling down in bed in winter even more so when there is beautiful linen on it. thanks for the chance. ;)

The Provincial Homemaker said...

Oh, toowoomba winters are cold. This would be the cover for the second doona on the bed, as yet coverless - DH has a month long exercise mid winter - I'll need the extra layer.

Sarah said...

Oooh it's lovely, please count me in! That linen would look fabulous in our grey and white bedroom (and we are sadly without the joys of Ikea here on the apple isle).

And as for keeping warm in winter - I feel warmer with my crocheted shawl for my shoulders, woollen socks for my tootsies and a bowl of hot soup in my tummy :)

Market Girl said...

So funny you. How clever are you getting invited to everything, those Ikea people know how to throw a party hey?
Of course this will live in my room, hands off!

Tracylee said...

What a lovely prize! Would be very nice to snuggle into while sorting through all my lego people :P lol

Make mine Mid-Century said...

You gotta count me in on this one, Posie. You know how much I love Ikea ... and now I think I have to provide a bed and linen for a possible Swedish au pair that is looking more likely by the day!

How much more at home could I make her feel than with Ikea sheets on her bed!! Brilliant.

Rosalind said...

oh yes please! lovely x

Gifts Created said...

OK so who doesn't love snuggling amongst love ones but lately I have been keeping my toes cozy at night with a lovely handmade heat pack I was given last mothers day however lately I have been finding my little one in the middle of the night under the sheets at the end of our bed hogging the heat pack and cuddling it like his Teddy....So I'm sure some lovely new sheets will come in handy for my little ones late night escapade.

Katiekins said...

Such a versatile design. Would look lovely in my sunny Queensland bedroom. Newly moved from Canberra but am so glad I brought my long woolly scarves with me to keep me snuggly warm at night!

Naturally Carol said...

Hi Posie, that was a great gig you had sleeping at Ikea! That bed lineen looks a bit vintagey..lovely..please put me down for a chance!

Kizzaaaa said...

Oooh I love those, but I think I would give it to my daughter as she is 11 and just got a new room, an ikea bedroom furniture makeover all ready for those teenager years, she's done very well to take pride in her 'teenager' room, so it would be a lovely reward....

Kizzaaaa said...

Oooh I love these, but I would actually give them to my 11yr old daughter, she has just graduated to a 'teenager' bedroom, big bed, nice rug, paint colour she likes... And she done very well to take pride in keeping it spick and span so it would be a nice reward for, what I'm sure is hard work!!

Maxabella said...

What fun! I actually really, really like Ikea fabrics and would be very happy with that Alvine gracing my bed. x

Pretty Chic said...

Hello lovely Jennie,
Would love to enter this giveaway! What a sweet print, perfect for autumn.
PS missing you at the gym, we haven't crossed paths in quite a while!!

We stay cosy in winter with a room heater , a warm quilt and our favourite hot chocolate milk.

Kylie said...

What a great giveaway. If I am lucky to win I would give it to my mum for there caravan. I gave started making a quilt but it is not getting far:). My DH is also away for winter. You will find me snuggled up under a doona inside a sleeping bag. I kid you not it works a treat and the only way I got through 18 months in Canberra and two southern postings while he was away.

m.e (Cathie) said...

beautiful giveaway from you yet again!
I love suggling into a warm bed at night...ahh bliss ♥

MultipleMum said...

I am in! How lovely they are?! I missed your post on Ikea sleep-over (that must have been strange?) so am off to catch up. x

Bj said...

The Linens are beautiful and I would love to dress up my bedroom with them.

Angela Osborn said...

I'm following your blog and now I am commenting! The linen looks lovely!

melissa said...

That quilt would look just wonderful in my bedroom.

Sadly, I don't think I'm getting a mothers day present this year (unless I buy it myself) so this would be a great backup!

circle retreat quilter said...

I saw this quilt set in Ikea the other day and thought how good it would look against a pieced quilt folder over the bottom. Yes please.

A Red Ham said...

I would love to win some new linen. I have a queen sized bed & I was only looking at the doona cover today thinking I must do something about it! In winter I snuggle next to my husband, who gives off so much heat he often makes my bone marrow boi! We start the season with just the doona, then add a quilt & finish with 2 quilts on the doona. We don't heat the bedroom & I do like to be warm in bed.

flourish and blume said...

I've been staring at bed linen for at least a year now hoping that one day a lovely new set will miraculously land in my lap and then I could do a before and after bedroom makeover, oo yeah!

Tam said...

My room of course!! Our currrent linen is rather old and rather drab...would love to make my room beautiful!

Jacinta @ modelmumma said...

Oh Posie! That quilt looks so pretty. I'd have it on my bed of course.... collapsing under it after a really long day with the girls... hehe.

Bron66 said...

You can never have too many doona covers! I desperately need a new one. I will be snuggling under it and no doubt one 4 yr old and one 6 yr old will be spending plenty of time under it too. Apparently my bed is so much more snuggly than theirs

Anna Bartlett said...

This would definitely be for my bed. Just tonight I re-met an old friend and we talked about having just one 'perfect' space and that the bedroom is the place to start. I'm going to make a list and work through it - might take years, but this prize would be fantastic. Love ikea! Fancy you too, Jennie. (Not in a wierd way, of course!)

Miss Muggins said...

I desperately need a new doona cover. I foolishly let my 16 year old borrow it (we did a swap for a week)and she got fake tan, blue pen and nailpolish all over it!
I can visualise Mr M and I snuggling in clean new bedlinen - and Miss A can keep her grubby mitts off it! ha ha!

Melissa said...

What a divine quilt cover set... loving the fabric! It's making me feel chilled out and relaxed already! :)

Lovely looking quilt, just what's needed in our main bedroom. And my 2 year old son is looking for a new cave to explore.
