    What a great giveaway & their regular price is pretty awesome too. Providence lighthouse lookout (grey with dots) is gorgeous, although there are soo many I love, it’s really not fair to make me pick a favorite!

    I can’t decide between “Earth Day in Berkeley,” “Tacoma Storm,” and “Napa Valley Bouquet.” I love the loopy pattern, and those three are my favorite colors! I’m not ready to try a more themed variety, but “Return to Sender or Graceland” really caught my eye!
