Take note: free giveaway!

***************THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***********************

Time for a free giveaway for my fantastic readers!

This giveaway is inspired by all of the chairs we have discussed in recent posts. You can read about them at these links:

As a big thank you for all of you that have been following my blog, I’m giving away a beautiful set of sixteen note cards. These note cards commemorate the chair designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who was a Scottish leader in the British Arts & Crafts movement.

As we have seen in many examples here on the blog, great furniture design can be artful in its own way. Mackintosh’s chairs are recognizable for their dramatically tall profiles and almost-Art-Nouveau motifs. The chairs depicted on the note cards include 4 designs from 1897 to 1903, some of which reside in museums today. There are 4 note cards of each chair design.

These note cards are unusual because they are the regular #10 US envelope size. They would be great for letter writing, or framing as group for a unique pieces of art for your home (see Rule #5 in this post).

    My favorite post was the Easter shopping post with the cute bunny and the kids hopping game.


    Wow, what great note cards.

    My favorite was the “People in Glass Houses…” post about the conservatory rooms. If only…


    I find all of your posts interesting, but I got the most use out of the post on microfiber cloths. Just a $10 investment and I’ll never have to buy paper towels again. Thanks a lot!


    I particularly liked the post about all the Louises….Louis….Loueys…Louix….kings. I’ve always wondered where the difference was, style-wise, so it was really informative, PLUS it was really funny. Loved it!

  5. Take Note of Me!

    I’ve found most of your posts interesting but the ones I liked the best were the ones about the microfiber cloths and Mrs. Meyers all purpose cleaner. I’ve become quite the fan of both items. I think that Mrs. Meyers cleaner is awesome and works on just about everything from grease to soap scum. My black appliances have never been so clean and dust free! I also recently invested in a new mop. Similar to the Swiffer mop but you use microfiber cloths (Libman and O’Cedar both make one)and you can use your own cleaner instead of buying the expensive refills for the Swiffer. Does a great job and again I use the Mrs. Meyers cleaner.
