Why a giveaway?  Because I'm always thinking of you ... my beloved blog readers ... and ways to make you happy ...

What can I say, it's just the type of gal I am ...

Okay, are you about ready to gag now? 

Here's the thing:  I belong to HomeStyle Book Club, and they had a deal in November where if I bought a book I got a book free.  So I bought a book for me, and I bought the same book for a giveaway. See? I was thinking of you all!

Here's what I'm giving away:

I love Rachel Ashwell, and have all of her books. It's been interesting to watch how her style has evolved over the years, but has always stayed true to her inner vision.  In her new book, Shabby Chic Inspirations and Beautiful Spaces, she describes her journey to her new bed and breakfast in Texas, how she gave the old farmhouse her distinct touch, and she shares some other spaces she admires.  Here are some examples:

If you're a Shabby Chic or Rachel Ashwell fan, you'll definitely want to enter this giveaway.  Here are the rules:

1.   Be a follower of my blog.

2.   Leave a comment telling me you want the book.

Pretty easy, huh?  If you'd like another chance to win, refer a friend to become a follower, and leave a comment letting me know you've done so. That comment will count as your second entry. (And don't forget to tell your friend to enter!)  If you're a subscriber rather than a follower it would be great if you became a follower, but if not, no worries--you can enter too.  Just leave a comment telling me your name and that you're a subscriber.

Remember:  please make sure you have your email address on your profile so I can notify you if you win.  Subscribers, you can either send me an email with your email address (see contact page tab above), or just make sure you come back on the announcement date to see if you've won (then send me your contact info.)

Winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 7. 

Good Luck!
