giveaway: sweetheart tie

these made to order neckties are among my favorite etsy finds. fieldguided is a lovely shop with handmade ties for the man in your life. what i love most is the secret embroidery on the backside of each one of a kind tie. anabela will stitch the name (or pet name) of your sweetie into the winning tie. {and for those of you without a love interest, i'm sure every dad would delight in a valentine from his favorite daughter.}

if you'd like to enter to win a red plaid sweetheart necktie, leave me a comment on this post by thursday, january 29th. i'll announce the winner on friday, january 30th. thank you, anabela!

That Tall Girl said...

Being a tall woman with a tall husband, I frequently have to modify my husband's ties to make them longer. It's kind of fun to feel like a domestic goddess every time I sew ties.

He's in law school, so we cannot necessarily afford lots of expensive "tall" ties. I would absolutely love to give him this tie, and I know he'd be proud to wear it for a presentation, court appearance, or argument.

I have absolutely fallen in love with your site! Thanks for all of the great ideas! :)

just jen said...

Cass said...

Christine said...

This is so perfect! I have been wanting to sew up a tie for my valentine this year, but these are way cuter! I love the embroidered label on the inside, it makes them so much more special.

Berta said...

Oh! Pick me, pick me! Great looking tie + a great looking husband = count me in! Thanks for sharing.

deidra said...

I've been looking for a red tie for the hubs, but none have made my heart sing like this one did.

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

I would love to win this tie! The embroidery on the back is too cute!

LobotoME said...

Mique (as in Mickey) said...

LOVE those. What a great idea!
I'd love to win one for my valentine. ;)

Emily said...

When I met my husband, plaid (on flannel, especially) was his trademark. He'd even pair one plaid tie with a totally different plaid shirt to wear to church (not knowing they didn't look good together). He would love this tie! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kate G. said...

i've been debating buying one of these ties for awhile now. they are so perfect!

Amy said...

Ilove you blog and I really hope I win this tie. Thanks

mrsfussypants said...

My husband wore the same plaid tie everyday for a year on his mission. By the end it was held together with duct tape. I think it's about time (10 years later) that the man gets a new plaid tie!

Courtney B said...

i love these (along with everyone else). such a great gift!

thelyttlesinpa said...

I really do love your site. My husband would like the tie, and it would be fun to give it to him for Valentine's Day. We met on Valentine's Day, 8 years ago!

20-Something Superhero said...

Very cute. The stitched tag is so sweet. Usually the ties I pick out for my guy are a little flashier, and he's not always on board. But this is just perfect and traditional enough for him :)

Tash said...

My sweet little seven year old son is growing out of the baby ties and moving into big ties...how groovy are these!

brittany said...

Catherine Williams Photography said...

What a great idea! do you have one? I wonder how they tie? I love the idea of having a name on the back!
