~ A Give-Away and a big Thank you ~

Just a quick update Ladies!: I had a few emails asking what time the give-away closes, I'll be drawing a name from the Random generator at 9pm est. tonight! Thank you all so much!!

Hello sweet friends! It's time for another Give-away!
I always wish for more time in a day, but since that isn't possible, this is my only way of Thanking you all for all your support, love , and friendship! Having my little blog has meant so much to me, but only because of the connection I feel towards all of you and all the inspiration I feel back! I was actually inspired to do this give-away because of a question that was sent to me, asking me "what inspires me to use so much color in my house?"... Well, I think that started with my love of the French Country Cottage decor that sprung up everywhere a few years back. This wasn't "new" design, but the infusion of all the lovely French fabrics and importing of such pretties really flourished in the late 90's. So I was asked to do it for many clients and therefor I fell in love with it too! :) For me, I wanted my own Cottage to still have little bits of Pinks, Sages, and baby blues, so I just trusted my instincts and stuck with my heart and decided to mix all the deep rich hues of French country with the soft cottage palette I've always loved. So that answers that :) I love mixing :) .....So onto the give-away.... Using the French kitchen as an inspiration, The Give-Away includes: 30" round French lace table cloth , a French Vintage Le Creuset 6 1/2" saute pan, a 3 1/2" x 2" French copper butter pot , and a Pierre Deux mini style book....All you have to do is leave a comment :) If you would like 2 chances to win, just post about my give-away on your blog using the picture above. And leave me a second comment saying you did. Thanks Ladies!! I'll be picking the winner on Friday Oct. 30th!

( if you don't have a blog that's perfectly ok too, just leave me your email address in the comment )

Here is everything together, above... The butter pot was something I treated myself to years ago at Williams Sonoma, I think I paid about $65.00 for that little guy , but the French swear it's the best thing to melt butter with! And so pretty you can just leave it on the table top too!

The pictures in Pierre Deux's little Style Book are scrumptiously French! ( above ) Oh I just love all the colors and the fabrics of Provence!

A few more pics of the butter pot and book....

Up close, stamped ...

The French table cloth is handmade and has the most beautiful detail work! I couldn't seem to get my camera to focus as up close as I wanted, but the handy work is gorgeous and it's pristine!.... Note to self: take a photography class! lol

The blue tablecloth under it , isn't part of the lace, I just tried to use something to give you an idea....

The Le Creuset saute pan is Vintage French ( and stamped on the bottom ) , a few years back I went into a bidding war on EBay to get it too! :) I have many pieces from this collection, so I can part with one for my dear bloggers!

I love give-aways because it gives me a chance to say Thank You!! I wish I could give you all something, when I win lotto , I'll let you know :) Until then, this will have to do. But Thank you all for being such wonderful friends! I love your comments and read every one! My goal this week is to blog surf and get some free time to see you all too!

This Island below is not ( lol ) part of the give-away, shucks! But I wanted to spread some more French Cottage fairy dust around. :) This is from Pierre Deux, and so are the pictures to follow below. I am so influenced by this raw , colorful, bold and yet soft kind of design. Simply fabulous! I think I'd put this island in a more colorful kitchen, but the island itself speaks to me: "COOK and CHOP here! " :)

This pillow below is on my wish list :) !


When I saw the Fall catalog from Pierre Deux and saw this woman below, I just about yelled out: Omg, I need her here in my house! She is on my list now too! Look at that skirt? Oh my heavens :) love it!

I just adore their wreath, such pretty colors for Autumn...Hmmm, maybe I'll paint my front door French Blue?? I'm liking that idea :)

Well ladies , I hope you had a nice visit to my give-away and also my inspiration for it too!

I cannot end today's post with out a HUGE Thank you also to Tina from Cherry Hill Cottage !! I read my new comments from the previous post this morning and Tina had left me a comment telling me she had placed me on Blogs.com list of the Top Ten Cottage Blogs!! Words cannot tell you how much that meant to me! She is such a sweetie! And one of the main inspirations for me opening my own blog too! I know you all know her, she's famous here in blogland and probably everywhere :) But if you don't , you've got to see her perfectly Cottage blog! Her home is fabulous to say the least, and her use of color is magical!

Thank you Tina, I was so honored!! and I'm still blushing :)!

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful week and weekend ahead!

With much love and appreciation!! xox

Cheryl said...

Hey Cynthia I love coming to your blog I actual come here to dream most of the time your blog inspires me. I have always loved french country and at one point to be honest didn't realize there was even a name for the style that I have been loving for so many years. Please enter me in your giveaway I will also make a post about your giveaway.
Peace and Many Blessings to you
Cheryl...Snatch JOY~!

Stacey said...

Cynthia, you are so sweet to have the fabulous frenchy give away. I'll be waiting on pins and needls for that one. :)

I wanted to tell you that one of the main reasons I love your blog IS your mix of frenchy with cottage. You have captured two looks so beautifully. I think lots of us are torn between those two. You are supreme!

Now about fabrics, I often just sit and look at how you've mixed fabrics. I've noticed before your ability at putting the frenchy colors with pastels. Could you talk about that specifically some time? My house is red, gold, green..I desperately want to add some softer colors now but sort of feel like it looks out of place when I try. It seems like it takes time and several other colored items added in for it all together and I just haven't gotten there.

Congratulations on your blog nomination. Wow, to get that from Tina is really a compliment!

Hi Cynthia,
This is my first time blogging and also my first time here in u're blog space, I was looking at u're blog and pics of u're beautiful home. Looking at u're home pics by pics everything looks so beautiful, well thought out, very well put together from u're candles, u're spoon, u're forks, u're wall paper even u're music, everything....perfect! Looking at u're blog and u're pics it made me happy and u inspired me, looking around my home i was just thinking to myself that i have a lot of catching up to do so i think i am going to start with my dresser that i bought in a yard sale a while ago for 20 dollars by painting it, because right now the paint on it its not appealing to me. I have been meaning to paint it for a while don't get me wrong i was just not up to it at that time. But now after seeing u're beautiful home i just felt inspired by u're talent so if u want i can send u a before and after pics of my dresser project this weekend. Now everytime i want to feel inspired or if i m down all i have to do is look at u're awesome blog and u're awesome, beautiful home and i will be fine and also to get some ideas. So, thank you for the inspiration and a job well done!

blessings!
u're new fan

I love all your designs. Yours and Cherry Hill Cottage are two of my most favorite.

Kathleen Grace said...

Thank goodness, I'm not to late to enter the give-away! Yay! Although, since I won last time, I'll no doubt be disqualified this time (drat! cause this is one sweet give-away!) Although if lady luck were to smile on me again it would be very bad karma to not pay her heed, don't you think? hmmm?

Robyn said...

Hi Cynthia! I really enjoy your blog. You have such lovely taste in decorating and seem like a very sweet lady. Home is where the heart is, and yours reflects a dear heart! I would love it if you would kindly add me to your drawing. Thank you so much and many blessings to you and yours.

I had some free time this evening, and found it so exciting to discover that you are having another generous, beautiful giveaway. Who wouldn't want to win such lovely gifts! Each and every post I read is truly like opening the latest issue of my favorite magazine with soft, relaxing music in addition. In our sometimes crazy, busy world, I enjoy coming here to relax. Thank you for adding color, design and creativity to my world.

Cynthia said...

Hi Cynthia,

I'm a long time fan and I'm so glad that I checked back in time to post a reply for your great give away because I've been busy trying to creat a blog of my own. You make blogging look like so much fun that I've been inspired me to try to put one together for myself. I've found it to be lots of work but a labor of love! I'll be happy when I feel confident enough to share it with you and the rest of the folks out there in blog land. :)

Happy Blogging! Keep up the great work. We love it!
