I’m a bit frenzied in this post, because there there are a couple things I want to tell you about and they aren’t all design related.
I’m a huge Amazon fan. It makes my life so much easier for gift-giving. Since my family is spread out all across the United States, I’ve often written up my gift list and Amazon usually can cover everything on it. Plus, whenever I know about a new design book on the market, I can go to Amazon to check it out (and usually get the best price for it!).
Well, now they have a contest going on called Amazon’s 10th Anniversary Wishlist Sweepstakes and the prizes are incredible. Ranging from new home electronics (55” HDTV) to a new dream kitchen with all new appliances.
All you do is go HERE and you’ll be linked to their sweepstakes. You have to create a wishlist to enter, but that’s easy (and fun!).
And BTW FTC, I’m not getting paid to endorse this! :)
Now for some house cleaning…
I would like to send a belated thank you to Sue Whitney of Junkmarket Style for the fabulous gift of her two books that I didn’t (but now do) own! Sue was kind enough to send Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition and Junk Beautiful: Room by Room Makeovers with Junkmarket Style to me in response to me writing a post on her! Thank you Sue! Love her and love her ingenious creations! Visit Junkmarket Style to check her out!

Finally, I’ve been surfing around the internet and have a few fun sites for you to visit…
My friend, Teresa, sent me a link to Fit Click, which is a social fitness site for those who are interested with getting the right ratio of exercise to calories. It’s free and it’s a wonderful site.
I’m a bit late in posting this, but my daughter and I made the BEST Mango Salsa this summer for a school project she had. The site is called Great Salsa and it’s loaded with yummy recipes!
For fabulous design stories and pics like this…
visit the online magazine called Design Trade. You won’t regret it! Full of great articles about all things interior design.
I love bright graphic pillows. Check out some of Inhabit Living's new line of pillows….
hanging fabric panels. They are all incredible and the graphics are so vibrant and fun that I want to immediately design them into my space and my clients!
And finally, for a little eye candy, check out…..
Maria Trimball's Murals. Every bit, if not more, gorgeous than the likes of de Gournay or Gracie wallpapers. See for yourself….
Beautiful, aren’t they? Maria, if you are reading this, I have a dining room that needs your magic touch!
Have a lovely week!
