One Year Old = Giveaway!

My Blog is one year old this week!! I can't believe I've made it so far - honestly I'm the type to constantly start projects and never see them through so I'm really glad that I have kept to this. I've really enjoyed writing it and reading all the lovely comments I've received over the last year. Thank you so much to everyone who has read, followed or commented, it's been great reading your blogs too and "meeting" so many great people :-)

Now for my little giveaway. It took me ages to decide what to give and then I thought - well my blog is all about thrifting and using it as decor and anybody who reads this blog must have a similar interest so a book on the subject would be an ideal prize - ta daaa!!

"Flea Market Style" is a really lovely book with tips on how to use your vintage / market finds to create your own unique fab interior. It's hard-back, 140 pages and features really beautifully photographed interiors and vignettes to inspire. The lucky winner will receive a copy of this book.


How to Enter:
This is my first ever giveaway so I looked around at others and will follow what seems to be pretty much the standard entry format.
1. Leave a comment and your name will go into the draw once.
2. If you are a follower or become one and leave a comment your name will go in twice.
3. If you have a blog and mention my giveaway (and let me know) your name will go in 3 times.

Easy peesy! I will draw the winner in 7 days, good luck!

katiecrackernuts said...

I haven't seen this book I must track it down. Seen any other books about thrifting? I might start a sidebar of titles. A good idea. I also realised that I am not following your blog, well, I am in Reader, but not as a bonafide "follower". Eekk I can be lazy about this online politeness thing, so sorry about that. Can you tell me how you see "new" followers. Mine don't always show up as the last one on ... anyone????
