Book Celebration & $500 The Bella Cottage Giveaway

This past week has been a dream week.


On Tuesday, my book released and pre-ordered copies were shipped and I was sitting a bit on pins and needles incredibly nervous what you would think.



Would you like the book we created?
Would you be happy with the photos?
And what about the somewhat sentimental thoughts I shared and the story behind the story? 


When you write a book and put it out there and you can't go back and edit something because- it isn't a blog post- it is in print folks... well, talk about feeling naked to the world.
But you know what? 
Your comments. Your emails. Your messages on facebook and instagram are incredible and kind.  I have said it before- but this community here in blogland is the most amazing community out there. It is full of lovely souls who are creative and wonderful and who support others enthusiastically.



I feel so blessed to be a part of it and I cannot thank you enough.  And in the past few weeks - I have so enjoyed being able to give back and say thank you to YOU while celebrating the book release. 


And... about those celebrations.
Can we talk about all the fun we have been having with all these celebrations about the book release?  I am getting ready to announce all the winners in about a week-stay tuned for that- and oh yes indeed- the celebrating continues!

I am so thrilled to share another company that I adore with you today. 
I met Michelle from The Bella Cottage a few years ago at Las Vegas Market.
She had reached out about doing some photography and though I had shopped her site many times and already loved her pieces- I loved her and her store even more after meeting her.  She is an amazing business woman and savvy design girl- and an absolute sweetheart.

The Bella Cottage is my source for all things Eloquence, luxury linens and one of a kinds
and much more.

I have charming little vintage style bathroom elements 






and the island in the kitchen and console in the bathroom?


Even that favorite cane back chair



All can be ordered from The Bella Cottage.

To celebrate the release of French Country Cottage Book and our partnership - The Bella Cottage is offering a $500 Gift Certificate to use for ANYTHING you would like at their website.

Eloquence, vintage, trinkets, bedding,- you name it.

Here is how to enter:

And Amazon put the book on sale this week- so it is about
  $27 with the added coupon at checkout. A great time to pick up a couple extra copies for gifts. And I also have signed copies in my shop (more on that shortly) 

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

  6. Courtney, I'am thrilled to have your new book. I can't put it down! Well, actually I loaned it to a friend overnight for her to take a look. I'm missing it, and need to get it back!!! I signed up for emails with Bella Cottage and on the Rafflecoppter, I commented as such. Then I commented that I was sharing on IG, but couldn't find a link to share. So instead, I shared on my Facebook page. Hope that counts since I left a comment saying it was shared on IG.

  12. Hi Courtney, I'm anxiously awaiting my pre-order of your book. Just wondering why mine hasn't been dispaced yet as it sounds from above that pre-orders were sent out last week or did you mean the 21st?? Thanks so much, Melanie

    1. It was released last Tuesday - so you should already have your copy if you pre-ordered from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, etc. Maybe check on the order and make sure there it is on track?

    2. Thanks Courtney, Sadly I did check with Amazon and although I pre-ordered it on June 25th , they say they don't have any in stock:( I'm so disappointed, I thought the whole purpose of pre-ordering is so you are assured of it being in stock...

  32. Did I ever mention that as soon as you posted just a glimpse of your island, you hadn't even done the reveal at the time if I remember correctly, I was immediately in search of. I think you just mentioned it was a draper's table. I spent hours searching and searching and I did find some lovely antiques. But, I finally found Bella Cottage and pinned away. Today, when I clicked on the web, I had 2 things in my cart! Ha ha! Not sure what I put in there, but I sure would love to put that table and a whole lot of other in a cart.

  36. I just received my book Sunday from our Barns and Nobles. I know I ended up paying a lot more for it there, Courtney I have to tell you it was worth every penny. I’ve glanced through the book twice now and can’t wait to get reading it.
    It’s a book to love and one the share.
