French Country Book Giveaway!!

Through a crazy circumstance, I ended up with an extra decorating book called, The French Inspired Home by Carolyn Westbrook.

So, I thought I would pass it on to one of you!

It is filled with beautiful pictures of several types of French decorating.




This giveaway is open to everyone one.  You need not be a follower - though I would love it if you were!

Just leave a comment on this post now through Wednesday January 26th.  The winner will be announced Thursday, January 27th.

Welcome Home,
Penny
p.s. if you have a sister, have you told her you loved her recently?  I love you N, J, R & K!!

Hi Penny,
Thanks for popping by and letting me know about your giveaway. Everything is more inspiring when it's French. Thanks for entering me. I just called my sister to thank her for sending me delicious chocolates that she just brought back from her trip to Switzerland. She got to go there on business.

Have a lovely evening. I hope that your shoulder is on the mend.

Good morning Penny, Your giveaway book is lovely. I really love French Country decorating. Maybe I will be lucky.

I hope your shoulder is improving Penny. What an ordeal to go through. I know you are naturally an active person so this is more of a setback for you in many ways.

I am going to your guest bedroom post now.

Hugs, Jeanne

Bella said...

Hi Penny,
I just stopped by to catch up; I've been totally out of it for the last couple of weeks. Glad to see you are healing, slowly but surely. Your guest bedroom looks lovely - isn't it great to be able to make little changes like that, without purchasing anything? I love your cactus, too - my mom has those. They live forever! Oh, and I'd love to be entered in your giveaway!

Penny said...

What a beautiful book Penny. Thanks for sharing it with us. Miss you.

Penny

What a fantastic giveaway! You know, she is sort of my neighbor, in a town not far from Dallas. I run into her at the fabric store on occasion, and have been fortunate enough to visit her booth at First Monday in Canton many times. It's always just stunning. I just recently bought her first book, and this would be a great addition! Thanks for a great giveaway, Penny.

It looks like a beautiful book, Penny! I love the French Country look and if I ever redecorate I will probably adapt my home more to that style.
