Anniversary Party!

No not mine but got your attention right? Debbie at is hosting a giveaway for her 3rd Blogging Anniversary! How would you like a chance to win!
Here are a few paragraphs from Carolyn's book,

which will be released in October of this year by CICO Publishing.Once again, I would like to welcome you back to the plantation that we call home. It is always a work in progress and is ever-changing, just like me. Always evolving through time and where my passion lies. I think back to my childhood, how our house would move through seasons and time, and whatever my mother was passionate about at the time, was always reflected in our home's interior. Whether it was modern and sleek or an Asian themed interior this is where she felt comfortable or what she considered beautiful. Of course, there were and still are with me, the things that you love the most and you simply cannot part with and should never have to. These are the base of your design plan and then you can build your room around these things."

(Next two images taken from Carolyn's book The French Inspired Home)

Image above taken from!
"There is much more to creating a home than going to a furniture store and randomly choosing a packaged room. As I always say, your home should tell the story of those who dwell there. Everyone has a story that tells of their own journey through life. Your home should speak out about where you have been, who is dear to you, and those special trinkets and trappings that you have picked up along the way. Many of you are facing a blank canvas. For some, that can seem a daunting task with all of the white walls and empty spaces that need to be filled. When faced with a large space, it is often a good idea to break it down into smaller little vignettes, that seem to warm up the room and make it more comfortable. A seating area of random French chairs, benches, and gorgeous stacked oil paintings and collections that layer a big wall space to make it breathtaking and interesting, all at the same time, and most importantly, telling your story."

Carolyn Westbrook from "Through the French Door"

My brother happened to show up five minutes behind me.. He is twenty years older than I am! Oh and I must send a Happy 63rd shout out to my sister Teresa who has a birthday today on Father's Day, and she is 20 yrs younger than my dad who will be 83 on July 1st.
