A Give-A-Way!

I know that so many of my readers are home and design "shelter" magazine fanatics like Scott and me. They make us feel good, and give us great ideas for our own interiors. Because I strive to do that with this blog, I wanted to do a tiny little give-a-way, leading up to the lamp give-a-way, and my 100th blog post. So, leave a comment on this blog post, and I'll put your name in the drawing.

You'll have til' Tuesday, November 11th to comment, and I'll draw 2 names sometime on or about November 12th.

The prize? A one year subscription to your choice of magazine:

Ladies Home Journal (12 Issues)
Ready Made (6 Issues)
Traditional Home (1 year)
Better Homes and Gardens (12 Issues)
Country Home (10 Issues)

Additionally, for all of you wonderful designers with ideas and creativity oozing from your every pore, Isa at The World According to Isa is in need of your help! She's just bought a great french armoire (Cote de Texas style) and it needs a new finish for its new life at Isa's. Good luck, and from the bottom of my decor loving heart, "Thank You!" for reading.


  1. Please enter me in the drawing for a shelter magazine. I am addicted to them and also to your blog. You are so talented!!! Your lamp reminds me of many of Sally Wheat's creations. I live on the coast and driftwood is plentiful but No One had done anything as creative with it as you and Sally. Beautiful!
