French Country Style at Home Giveaway


Happy Wednesday!

I am so pleased to be offering this wonderful new book
for my next giveaway...

French Country Style at Home
 
 by Sébastien Siraudeau


From the publisher:

This enchanting volume unlocks the door of French homes tucked away in the country, from a farmhouse in the Cévennes to a castle lost in the heart of the Morvan mountains.

The writer and photographer Sébastien Siraudeau has already uncovered home inspiration from France’s guesthouses, antique shops, and flea markets in his previous books Vintage French Interiors and French Style at Home. Now he turns his experienced eye to the hidden gems of interior design in the French countryside and unveils the wealth of decorative inspiration they have to offer.

The vibrancy of these hidden retreats is demonstrated beautifully and, as the pages unfold, the reader is struck by a wealth of inspiration from the colors, seasons, and stories that have formed these subtly elegant creations


Wonderful, right?

So, why the giveaway?
What am I celebrating?

Well, I long since passed 200 posts,
and there aren't any big events on the horizon.

Maybe it's an I've won so many stinkin' giveaways myself lately 
that it oughta be against the law and it's time to give somethin' back sorta giveaway.

Naaaah, I think I'm gonna call this a just cuz giveaway.
Fair enough?!

Simple rules to enter:
  1. Leave a comment here for one entry
  2. Be or become a follower for a second chance (leave a comment letting me know you follow)
  3. Post or blog about this for a third chance (again, leave a comment letting me know!) 



 I'll be drawing the name of the lucky winner next Wednesday, May 19th.

Good Luck!

Oh my Gosh Anne,

What a most generous "just cuz" giveaway!!! I can't wait until I win ;) This book is at the top of my Amazon gotta have list!!! I don't get to participate in many giveaways because they are not of a book kind. Paper,mags and books can be sent here duty free everything else is subject to the custom agents of both countries! So see this most certainly was meant for me<>
