Free People: Free spirit, like a wild bird flying in the sky. A brain so full of ideas, that no one can stop it. Paired with talented hands, so crafty it makes every idea into a master piece. A body full of life and open to life’s adventure. Free People, when every idea comes to a creation, which leads to a beautiful, admiring masterpiece.

This, is why I AM FREE PEOPLE.. and this is why this vase, belongs to me x: ]

Would you be willing to send one of them to London? It would really lighten up my tiny flat. It could live by the window so it could see the view and all the lights from the skyscrapers at night. And I would call it Lumiere!

And happy birthday!!!

Dear beautiful pink urn,
You would look perfect in my house.
I would put you in the room with the goose,
Right next to the couch.
Oh pretty pink urn
How i long for your urnesty,
and your sassy rope tassels,
that cover your modesty.
If i were your owner,
I would treat you like a princess,
I would rock you in the night,
and you could play with your brother, chest.
Oh lovely pink urn,
you have such wonderful taste,
i yearn for your company,
and pray one day we can meet face to face.

Congrats! The “thing” is really beautiful.

Carlyn -November 15, 2010, 2:13PM

These urns would be gorgeous at my sister’s baby shower. Perhaps a gift from wee people would complement them as well. A festive decoration for such a joyous occasion. And in India, baby showers are a sacred event for only women to attend. In a way, the urns are a metaphor for life; they bring joy and remain steadfast yet are used as a final resting place as well.
Cheers, thanks for all the great ideas.

emma jane pritchard -November 15, 2010, 2:20PM


My name is Emma Jane and I live in a small village called Titchfiled, in Hampshire, on the south coast of England.

My cottage is 200 years old, and far,far away from the home of free people. 100 years ago an ancestor lived here before me, she lived by catching Oysters,cockles and mussels on the coast, and selling them in the village. When planting my vegetables and lavender in the garden I often fined old oyster shells, and Ive begun to make my very own childhood rhyme come true…mary,mary quit contrary.

I fill my cottage with trinkets of my travels…… japanese obi belt silk, from my time in tokyo, working for a japanese brand. Turkish tea making silver, from factory visits in Istanbul. lotus flower pods from China & HK sourcing trips. Spices from crete, marble status from egypt.

Treasured memories….. my grandfathers butterfly collection, my grandmothers sewing table and throws from my old aunt.

Free people is one of the companies I discovered during my time in the world of branded fashion, and it has become one of my treasures. My very own secret world of contrariness. like alice through the looking glass Free people has opened my mind to a world of fair trade and awareness and conscious choice.A world where contrariness works.

A world I now introduce to the students that I teach….. this vase would become one of the treasure in my heart and house, and would be a symbol of the new part of my adventure in life….. it would be very much loved in a cottage , by the sea, far far away from the free people home.

Hi so ok omg I’m sooo in ABSOLUTE LOVEE WITH THISS!! I’m soo obsessed with free people it’s crazy lol I’m in your stores at least once a week to the point that I have to sneak in bags of new clothes because my dad gets so
Mad at me! But anyway I’m 17 and me and my dad are living together in an unfinished, under-construction house because of this huge nasty divorce that has been going on for way too long but anyway my father finally let me design my room the way I want too and of course it looks like a free people store! I’m soooo excited to see it when it’s done! And I would be so grateful to have such a beautiful piece of artwork directly from you guys! I’ve been working so hard this year on my artwork to try and get into NYU and this would be an amazing thing I would be so excited but whoever gets this is gunna be so lucky, goodluck to all!

Felice -November 15, 2010, 9:46PM

I have been living in my current apartment for a year and a half now (a new record for me), and am absolutely in love with it! I do my best to make sure it is full of character, color and plenty of fun and unique pieces. This urn would fit perfectly by my couch (a spot that I have been looking to fill for months now). I know that you are picking the “winner” randomly but a little birdie told me that the urn really wanted to live with me in my apartment, and who are we to dispute that?

Claire Anne -November 15, 2010, 9:46PM

OOOO I want it!! :) <3 FP

Naomi -November 15, 2010, 9:47PM

sarah -November 15, 2010, 10:04PM

Wow I hope this does not sound weird, but i would love to have the urn for my mothers ashes. I don’t have one, and this one is the most beautiful one i have seen. When I saw it, it reminded me of her taste. I love everything about it, especially the unique tassels and would absolutely love love love to have it!

good luck to everyone!!! :):)

Felice -November 15, 2010, 10:09PM

I am going on a record of 19 months in my apartment and absolutely love it! I take great pride and joy in decorating my place with fun, colorful and unique pieces. This urn is the perfect piece for the spot near my couch (that I have been trying to fill for months)! I know that you aren’t picking a “winner,” so I figured I would let you know that a little birdie informed me that this urn really really wants to be a part of my home. Lets be honest… who are we to stand in the way of this urn’s happiness? HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Never before have I visited a shop as often as Free people. I go here for home and style inspiration and because it see,s like every other day there’s something new to see.
Thank you free people for creating your shop for women/ladies like myself.

tasha -November 15, 2010, 10:47PM

Wow, gorgeous. Since i’m not quite as creative as you free people girls and boys, would love to have this in my place. Although, it’s my first place away from home and first time living with my boy, hope he likes it! If he doesn’t, OH WELL!

Nicole -November 15, 2010, 11:14PM

Of course I would love to keep it if I win but truly I would give it to a friend who I get to see about once a year. She is part Indian and has been trying to follow her passions in life, one of them being Bikram Yoga. With both her and her husband being unemployed and with two children it’s been hard for her to find the funds and the time to take the teacher training course. I hope by having this urn in her room it will serve as a beautiful and constant reminder to not give up on her dream!

Love you Sharon, thanks for always being there for me when I needed you!


morgan Krhin -November 15, 2010, 11:14PM

wow! these are beautiful! i definitely did the DIY project that FP posted during the summer that is very similar to this give away! I made a few smaller vases for my friends for their birthdays with a bouquet of fresh flowers. they were absolutely gorgeous and i wouldn’t have been able to make them without the FP DIY blogs!
