August Book Give Away

bookcover

****This Give Away is now closed - thanks everyone!***

Hi everyone! The book for this month’s give away is Delight In The Details!

backcover
Someone that reviewed the book on Amazon said it was “pure eye-candy” and I agree! Actually I love this book so much that I bought a copy for myself and then one to give away.

There are detailed and easy instructions for all sorts of projects! So it’s great for even those that don’t think of themselves as “crafty”!

momstheword said...

I'd love to be entered in your giveaway! \

I am redecorating my sunroom and using your posts that I've seen as inspiration.

I am going to use a black and white toile (I think it's called) for the curtains. The cushions will be black and white stripe.

I have six pillows that I have to cover, and a tableround. I may bring in another black and white print for the table topper or do it in the toile, I'm not really sure which would be best.

I also may cover two of the pillows with the toile, I don't know that either.

What I do know is that I want to bring in some yellow and red, or apple green (or change it out)accessories - or maybe pillows.

Like I said, I'm a big "I don't know" but I'm buying the fabric Friday so guess I'll know then.

Just wanted to say thank you for all your lovely posts, and just wanted you to know that you've encouraged or inspired me to redo my sunroom!
