Giveaway!

Bess here & it’s the first day of Spring and the sun is shining and my birthday is tomorrow and all of these happy spring breakers are all around…..making us feel very generous today. Generous enough to host a giveaway! To enter to win a copy of ‘A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life.’ by Mary Randolph Carter leave a comment below & let us know what you are doing to enjoy all of this amazingly warm weather.

 

This book is a great addition to any coffee table with the tag line ‘How to live creatively with collections, clutter, work, kids, pets, art, etc…and stop worrying about everything being perfect in its place.’ This is one of my all time favorites in the shop currently. You have until 5pm Friday, March 23 to enter. We can only ship within the continental U.S. {sorry international fans-one day}.  Good luck!!

    Well.. as a college student I am spending too much time indoors looking for an Interior Design summer internship, and hiding from all the Georgia pollen at the moment. BUT I am enjoying growing plants on my deck and the excitement of having them successfully grow in the spring sunshine!

    I am also celebrating by wearing shorts and sandals- goodbye cold weather!

  10. Although I would much rather be spending our Spring Break on the beautiful Rosemary Beach, our family is headed to Dallas, TX to Great Wolf Lodge (indoor amusement theme park). We are trying something new and different this year to explore the great Texas Plains. My kids are so excited about seeing Cowboy Stadium and the Dallas Aquarium. We live in Little Rock, AR and we go to the beach every summer. We love Rosemary!

  11. This gorgeous weather is a rarity in Chicago in the month of March. My kids actually slept out in a tent in our backyard over the weekend. I know it’s early, but I’ve been planting pansies in my planters.

  16. I walked out into my flower garden and looked at my beautiful flowers. I found a caterpillar and monarch eggs on my milkweed. My 13 year old golden retriever, Honey and I sat in the grass for awhile and just enjoyed the moment. I spent the rest of the day with my grandchildren and daughter. I love this new phase of ny life! Everyday I will give thanks for all the beauty around me. Friends, family, flowers, home, and life!

  17. Happy Birthday Bess! Mine was actually yesterday, so what a way to start off Spring! Wish I was able to enjoy this beautiful weather more, but I’m in the same boat as a few others who posted and have to work. Nevertheless, thanks to daylight savings we can still enjoy a few hours of sunshine after work!

    Hope y’all have a great rest of the week!

  20. I was out in the garden inspecting my not very scientific worm bin in the shed (the worms are fleeing over the sides and back to the garden, which is ok I guess) and cutting roses. Indoors I am ignoring the state of the rug and perusing design blogs, where I found you.
