At Home with Country




Have you seen this new book, At Home with Country, from Christina Strutt of Cabbages and Roses?  They recently sent me a copy to review and I must say they had me with the cover! I LOVE it!!!  


The book's chapters include Classic Country, Modern Country, Island Country and Outdoor Country so there is something for everyone who loves country style!
There are so many beautiful photographs in this book, I had to resist the urge to show them all here!  
This book is a wonderful addition to my decorating book collection and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the cottage look! It's full of inspirational photos!

Now here's the giveaway....

they sent me this adorable journal and some gift cards (which are bookmark size) to giveaway here.  If you would like a chance to win these, please leave a comment below I will randomly draw one winner on Saturday, June 5th 2010.  If you don't have a blog be sure to include your email address!

I love the book. I just checked two books out of the library: Shabby Chic Interiors and Waterside Cottages. Others I wanted, they didn't have at my library. I am soon moving and will need to decorate a studio size apartment. I need all the help I can get. This stuff does not come naturally to me. I am drooling over all these websites and how talented and lovely your gifts, talents and abilities are. Wow!!
