Giveaway roundup

A little while back, I was on a giveaway roll. First, I won a beautiful rendering of my living room by the fantabulous Michelle at A Schematic Life (actually, hubby won it for me!!) Unfortunately, the matte got squashed in the mail, so I had to find a frame with a matte for it. It took me a while to find the right frame, but I think this is it. What do you think??

Here’s a close-up:

Around the same time, I won this red Alessi bowl from the lovely Albarosa at Brillante Home Decor:allesi bowl

Our new kitchen countertops are supposed to be installed Wednesday, and then the bowl will finally have its proper new home in the kitchen :-)

And then not long after those two giveaways, I won two more!! Holy smokes!! First, I won pk’s giveaway at Room Remix for either a wire basket or a rococo frame from The Inglenook Decor. I chose the rococo frame in white, which is the perfect addition to the desk in my home office. With a picture from our trip to Nova Scotia, of course!!

It also comes in bright pink and black (I give up on trying to spell fuschia. CRAP, I got it wrong AGAIN!!!)

And last but not least, Maya at Completely Coastal had a giveaway for a candle from black & light co. And she picked me!! The candle came packaged so nicely:


It’s a lot of packaging for a candle — but read this note that came with it:


And this is the note that came in the smaller box with the 4” black swirl candle that I selected — isn’t it a charming touch?? :-)

I haven’t lit it yet… hmmmm, maybe I’ll go light it right now :-)

A big thank you once again to Michelle and Albarosa, and new big thank yous to pk, Maureen at The Inglenook Decor, Maya, and Holly at black & light co. :-) All of your giveaway prizes have a special place in my home :-)

I think it’s about time we had another DesignTies giveaway… Victoria and I will come up with something good soon :-) Stay tuned!!
