New Cottage Style Giveaway Jubilee


***GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED***
Winners will be announced later tonight or tomorrow morning.
I thought this side of the pond could use a little festivity too so in celebration of the release of the Better Homes & Gardens New Cottage Style book, I'm happy to announce a Giveaway Jubilee of two copies of the book.

To enter the giveaway simply leave a comment.  If you're an anonymous commenter, please leave a first name, city and state (or country) or some other unique moniker so you'll know I'm talkin' to you when you win.

I won't make you jump through any more hoops like following me on Twitter or FaceBook.  If I get more than 100 comments--hold on to your fascinators!--I'll double the giveaway to four books just to increase your chances of winning and to thank you all who are always so great about commenting. 

I'll draw the names randomly next Thursday, June 14th.

Good luck!
