A HOWL-IDAY GIVEAWAY

December 10, 2013

House of Harvey Howl-day Giveaway

I never thought there was anything that could make me appreciate dogs more than I do already, but these amazing stories of lessons-learned from the pooches in our lives has done just that.  We truly has some wise, brilliant, loving and compassionate pups in our lives. Aren’t we the luckiest?

And now for the winner….congratulations MEGAN!

Parker, my dapper 14yo guy, has bestowed so many lessons as he has been my watchful guardian through my 20s and now 30s. He’s definitely taught me to stop and take a pause. Even if this means squatting in the middle of the 6-way intersection in the very hip Wicker Park neighborhood for a #2. Well, that day he taught everyone to take a pause! Always at my side, he now has been slower moving older gentleman and I have been careful to sit and relax more at home (instead of jumping to the endless list of to-dos) to give his joints a rest. Together we can admire the change of light or hear a city noise that may have otherwise escaped notice. Every day is a lesson in aging fearlessly and gracefully.

Parker sounds like a dapper gentleman indeed!  Megan, please email me at hello@houseofharvey.com with your full name and mailing details so I can send out your prize.

Thanks again to everyone who entered. I plan on having some fun giveaways in the new year, so stay tuned! And happiest holidays to all!

This week I shared a fun gift guide for pets and pet-lovers on Design*Sponge and it got me thinking about the power gift giving.

There is something so magical about giving. Whether it’s a small trinket, a grandiose gesture, a smile or a compliment, the power of giving can go a long way. I know for a fact that Harvey was the best gift I could have ever received. And while no one actually gifted him to me (sheer kismet brought us together three years ago),  he has graced my every day with a love and joy that nothing will ever compare to…blinking red nose and all.

He keeps me in the “present” and that is the best gift anyone could ever give. (Did you like that play on words there? I know I was impressed.)

So in the spirit of giving and holiday cheer, I thought I would give away a hodgepodge of pup goodies for you to share with the lucky dogs in your life.

This is just a small selection of favorite items I came across this past year and it makes me so happy to share them with you, my fellow dog-loving peeps.

WOODEN DOG HOUSE GOODNESS

August 12, 2013

Wood dog houses | House of Harvey

As you may know, my pops and I have a small wood shop, Maker Made, where we craft simple housewares. We’ve been toiling away in the shop as of late (actually just launched a few new products too…check em out!) and I’ve been conjuring up some fun new designs for down the road, a couple of which are pup friendly.

In my inspiration search, I’ve come across some amazing wooden dog houses that put the one we built for Mr. Harvey to shame. These are some sweet abodes. Let’s take a moment to admire some of these fine dog pieces of architecture.

I’ve been feeling all sorts of cozy these past few days and want nothing more than to curl up on the couch with my pup to watch endless episodes of The Golden Girls (our favorite lounge time viewing).

Here are a few pup-perfect pillows I’d like to rest my head on:

BLANKETID DOG TAG DESIGN + GIVEAWAY!

July 30, 2013

House of Harvey for blanketID

I fell in love with blanketID when I saw a fun collaboration between them and the amazing Dog Milk a few months back. I was thrilled to see that there was brilliant design going on, with a wonderfully helpful product (blanketID tags act as a lost pet tracking system with unique ID numbers on the back of every tag!), and a charitable component too! It was a trifecta of pup goodness!

So when blanketID asked me to be a part of their Donation by Design collection, I just couldn’t contain my excitement! Harvey and I quickly hit the sketchpad, coming up with several ideas for our very own House of Harvey dog tag designs….and here is what we ended up with…

House of Harvey for blanketID

Our goal was to create some playful and vibrant dog tags that any dog/dog owner would love to showoff at the dog park. We were looking to achieve a sleek, yet whimsical design that would work seamlessly with any collar pairing. They are just faboo in our opinion! (I’ve always secretly wanted to be a fashion blogger, so here’s my chance to throw out things like “work seamlessly with” and “sleek”….just go with it…)

And being a “Donation” by Design collection, a portion of all tag sales will go towards the charity of my choosing, which happens to be Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles. It has always been my goal as a dog blogger and dog lover to help spread the word about dog rescue and give back to those who so willingly give of their time to help the homeless pet population around the world.

Donation by Design Tags

Since we are so over the moon about this fun launch, I’ve decided to give away a selection of Donation by Design tags, including our brand spanking new House of Harvey designs to SIX lucky winners!

All you have to do to enter is…

1. Leave a comment sharing what kind of “style” your dog would have if they could have a style. Is he/she a mustachioed hipster? Or more of a 50s glam goddess? You know you’ve thought about it before, so go on and tell me what you think!

I will announce the SIX lucky winners on Monday, August 5! Good luck and don’t forget to check out ALL of the wonderful Donation by Design tags HERE!
