GIVEAWAY: 20×200!

It’s the last giveaway this month on Manhattan Nest, and it’s gooooooooooood. And quick! Let’s go shopping for art together, shall we?


Oh geez, I love these so hard: Baby Donkey by Sharon Montrose | Bildudalur by Tom Kondrat | Orb 5 by Carlo Van de Roer | Apres Grande 12 by Christian Chaize | Reindeer by Lisa Congdon

There’s something totally amazing and fun about buying an original or limited edition print of something that you just totally love. You know you have something special. It forges a certain bond with the work and (I like to think) with the artist who made it. It’s about collecting and cherishing something because you love it and value it—it’s personal, and that means something. 

20×200 is an amazing company because they make collecting great art so accessible, simple, and affordable that you want to buy all the art ever for yourself and everyone you love. Working directly with incredible artists to created exclusive, limited edition prints at affordable prices, 20×200 curates quality pieces that you’ll always be proud to own or feel great about giving as a gift. And with Christmas just around the corner, the window of opportunity to buy art as a present for yourself or somebody else is rapidly closing. I can’t really think of any gift that says “I think you’re great and I care about you and your home and happiness and well-being and did I mention I think you’re great?” better than art. Lucky for you, 20×200 has put together a supremely useful and very cool gift guide to aid in selecting just the right print for that special lucky someone, if you need some extra help choosing.

Art is a million times cooler and more unique and personal than that Avengers DVD you were thinking about. Trust.



I will gladly accept any of these fine options if anybody wants to buy me presents: Momento Vitae by Alexander Beeching | Untitled by Todd St. John | Newfoundland 7 by Carrie Marill | Portrait of Sandy From Far Away by Ticker Nichols

SO. The super awesome brains, brawn, and beauty behind 20×200 are offering a lucky winner a $100 shopping credit for anything in the store! Maybe you want to buy yourself a little extra special Christmas surprise for your digs? Totally possible. Maybe you have somebody special in your life who could use something amazing on their walls and in their hearts? You’re going to want to listen up.


1. Go to the 20×200 website and pick a couple of your favorite pieces!

2. Come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite pieces are! If you’re buying for yourself, where would you hang your new art? If you’re buying for your lucky special friend, who’s it for? 

Want more good news? Try this on for size:

Happy Collecting!

GIVEAWAY: Fetch Eyewear!

So the giveaway last week was pretty fun, yeah? What do you say we do another one today? And next Monday, too? It’s totally free stuff month on Manhattan Nest and it’s awesome because you could get in on that with some seriously awesome swag from my seriously awesome sponsors.

A little while ago, I bought my first pair of glasses and started wearing them around all the time. I don’t altogether need glasses, but I have a weak prescription for distance, so basically I see like a superhero when I wear them. Mostly, I’ll admit that I just like wearing glasses because they make me feel smarter, more competent, and like I’m wearing a costume. Who do I want to be today? My glasses will tell me.

So when an amazing little Portland, OR-based company called Fetch Eyewear e-mailed me out of the blue and asked if I might like to try out a pair of their frames, I took them up on it.

Fetch Eyewear is such a cool company because not only do they make super awesome, super affordable glasses, they also give all of their profits to the Pixie Project in support of animal rescue and adoption. Seriously. Just by buying and wearing around a pair of great glasses, you get to help save the lives of dogs like mine and help them find homes. Does it get any better than that?

No it does not.

Picking a pair of glasses is also fun and easy with the Try at Home feature, where you get to pick 6 pairs of glasses, try them out for a week, then send them back to Fetch and order your favorite pair. So cool. I ended up with a pair of Baxter frames and it’s love. I love these glasses. I guess they’re my “artsy academic” look, and I haven’t taken them off for weeks. The quality is excellent, I think they fit my face well, and I love the shape. Also, I get compliments. Like, actual human people telling me that something on my face looks nice. That feels good.

For serious, these glasses are wonderful. Just look at those jolly people being so happy in their glasses. They are all seriously very thrilled and only one of them is holding a cute dog. So.


The lucky winner will win two (2!) pairs of frames or sunglasses. Any frames! Any sunglasses!



1. Go to the Fetch Eyewear website and pick your favorite frames!

2. Come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite frames are and who they’re for! Maybe you’ll keep them all to yourself? Maybe you want one for you and one for your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/child/friend/parent/lover? Up to you!

3. For an extra entry, go “Like” Fetch Eyewear on Facebook! Then come back and leave another comment telling me you did so. If you already like them, tell me that, too.

International entries are welcome and Fetch Eyewear will pay the shipping. However, the winner may be responsible for international duties & taxes.

Mekko and Linus are in full support of Fetch Eyewear. Now go get yourself some free glasses, you sexy four-eyed thang, you!

This giveaway ends on Thursday, December 13th at 8 PM EST. A winner will be chosen at random and I’ll update the post with the winner’s name on Friday, December 14th! Yipee!
