GORGEOUS PATINA STYLE & A GIVEAWAY!!!


Sometimes you find a book that just plain
speaks your language.


The colors.
The furniture.
The rooms.
The style.


Starfish,
old faded books
wicker baskets
dried hydrangeas
yep, they are talking to me.


A shabby painted finish on the outside
and a little sweet surprise color on the inside...
*love*


Old shingles and french doors...


and rooms filled with an
elegance that comes from patina and style.


You have probably already heard about this gorgeous new book.
You can find it HERE at Barnes and Noble
it is already selling out at Amazon and other stores!


It is
PATINA STYLE
by
Brooke and Steve Gianetti.


Brooke writes the beautiful blog
which I follow along and love
so I knew when their book came out
I would be ordering it.

When my copy arrived,
I was immediately in love.
(there were a lot of oooh's and ahhh's) lol!
I have found page after page of inspiration and so many wonderful ideas!!

I told Brooke how very much I was enjoying her beautiful book~
She graciously sent a signed copy for me (yay!)
as well as offered a signed copy to my readers for a giveaway!!!


Not only is she an amazing designer and blogger
she is so incredibly sweet too!

My book arrived gift wrapped and tied with twine!

I absolutely treasure my copy of this beautiful book. and it will be one
that I refer to again and again...
I am already planning just a few re-do's in
true Patina Style!

Thank you so much Brooke!!
~
So who is ready to win a
signed copy of Brooke's absolutely beautiful

PATINA STYLE ?


Here's the details:
You have 4 chances to win!

MANDATORY:
BE a follower or BECOME a follower of French Country Cottage blog
(Make sure to hit the Google Friend Connect
button in my right sidebar)
&
leave me a comment on this post telling me you are a follower.


Optional for Additional Entries:

Follow me on FB/share it there and come back here
and leave a separate comment to
tell me you do.

Follow me on Twitter /tweet about it come back here
and leave a separate comment to
tell me you do.

Post the button on your sidebar
and/or blog about it
and come back here and leave a separate comment
to tell me you do.

I know it's a lot of comments,
but sifting through the entries to add each one gets crazy!
So it's easier to count each entry if it's a separate entry.

Please make sure you are not showing as an anonymous comment as well.
I have no way of contacting anonymous people so they will not be counted
in the giveaway.

I would appreciate it and it would be wonderful
if you would take a moment to stop over at Brooke's blog
to say hello and tell her I sent you too.
She has been so incredibly sweet and generous.
She is also on Twitter - @velvetandlinen
and on Facebook
Thanks so much!!


That's it!


You will love this book!!
It is absolutely wonderful!!!

The giveaway will be open for 2 weeks!
