Natural Selection Studio Giveaway


Hooray!  This week we have a sponsor giveaway from Natural Selection Studio who is gifting one lucky winner with a handcrafted wooden bowl that is made from reclaimed Michigan Sugar Maple.  The food safe bowl is appropriately named Sweet as Sugar because oh man, it is so sweet. I mean, reclaimed wood – how cool is that !?!

sugar-maple-bowl2 I will tell you – it’s very very cool and so is the artist, Greg Gallegos, who creates so many functional things from local wood that may never have reached it’s full potential if not for his green kindness.

In the NSS Etsy Shop, you’ll find platters, goblets, container vessels, decorative pieces and of course, my favorite – wooden bowls.  And they’re all made in a sustainable fashion that makes your eco-heart melt.

To be entered in the giveaway for the Sweet As Sugar maple bowl, visit and prepare yourself to be completely impressed with the amazing wood turning.  Then, report back here to share your favorite one.  I’ll announce the lucky winner right here on Monday, May 25 and ship this baby out with lots of love.  Good Luck!

Post update:  I was having so much fun, I forgot to list the fine print that we need to get listed on Ecobunga!:  This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere, of adult age 18+ and will end on May 24th 11:59 p.m EST and a winner will be announced on May 25 when I get around to turning on my computer to log in.   One lucky person will be chosen at random, probably with little pieces of paper in a hat.  If prize is not claimed within a week, we will draw a second-best winner and notify them by email.  We will not share your email with anyone, not even our Mamas.  Thank you for your participation.  One entry per person.


And the lucky winner is…  Dalaimamasday!!

Thanks to everyone who entered.  Winning entrant was chosen by RANDOM.ORG

Stay tuned for our next giveaway!

  1. Everything is absolutely amazing. What beautiful craftsmanship. I really love the natural edges on many of the bowls. My favorite would have to be the
    Ethereal Natural Edge Crab Apple Bowl! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win such a beautiful piece of functionl art!

  2. What beautiful work, I have collected burl wood turned pieces for some time. Our local Audubon hosts a show each year. Quite difficult to choose a favorite, but mine is the Radiant Red Cedar Vase. The goblets are cool.

  3. My favorite is the blushing maple bowl. I am always so impressed with any one that can work with wood. The vision they have just awes me.

  4. I love the Sweet Cherry Goblets. I think they would look really cool with some wildflowers cascading out of them on a mantle piece or window sill.

    I also like the Crab Apple Goblet.

    I love how natural they look. No straight lines, just the way things are found in nature. They would add such an elegant sense of beauty to any room. And the artist is from Michigan! My home state! Gotta love supporting the locals. 🙂

  5. How do you choose?! Since I’m forced to pick just one, I think I will have to go with the Austere Apple Bowl. Beautiful!

  6. I can’t get over how awesome all these products are. They look extremely high quality and pricey! 🙂 My favorite is the the Balderdash Box Elder Bowl!! Thanks so much! –Michelle, blogattoday [|at^ gmaildotcom

  7. The austere apple bowl is stunning. Not only the shape of the bowl, the knots create a beautiful abstract image. Beautiful work!

  8. I love the crispy apple bowl because of the rich color and smooth line of it. I imagine it would feel amazing cupped in my palm. It’s the kind of bowl I just want to touch…absolutely beautiful.

  9. I love the Austere Apple Bowl. It looks so natural and is perfect for fruits.
    The eyes of friends will bounce out if they see it on my eating table or with me for a picnic. 🙂
