giveaway

Sorry for my lack of posts this week, but I've been sick with strep throat (delightful, I know). It was making the rounds in my sons' daycare, so it was only a matter of time before I picked it up.
The New York Times published a piece about this book about two weeks ago. It sounded great, so I bought a copy over the weekend. I fell in love with this book right from the first page. It's full of eye-popping inspiration for frugal decorators everywhere. My favorite thing about this book is that it celebrates thrift store shopping rather than making it seem like a last-ditch attempt to decorate your home on a budget. It's full of beautiful images of gorgeous rooms decorated with unique items. It even has sections about how to spot a quality piece, how to refinish furniture and how to incorporate thrift finds into your own home.
I love this book.
I love it so much that I went out and bought a second copy so that I could give it away to one of my readers. So if you'd like to enter the drawing, just leave a comment (about anything - I'm not picky) and I'll pick a winner on Sunday at 6:30 pm EST.

  11. Wow, would I LOVE to win this book! The best part about thrift store shopping for me is that if the kids totally destroy something, at least I'm not crying over all the money I spent on it!
