Book Release Week & $1000 Shopping Spree to Lamps Plus Giveaway

A year ago at this time, I was working on photos.
And writing. And more photos and then more writing.


And here we are with the book release in just.a.few.hours.
Can you see me falling over just a bit? I am More than a little crazy at this point.
And I will be sharing a little bit of my heart and a few reflections here tomorrow - 
and today?



It is all about elegant, crystal covered FUN.
Today I am talking one of my favorite things. 
Chandeliers. 
And sconces. 
And more.


Do you see these gorgeous beauties from a snap that is in the book? 
Are they vintage? Nope. Brand new.



And these amazing sconces in the attic? New as well.



And can we talk about the chandelier in the living room?



ALL from Lamps Plus. 
As well as those blushing lamps in my bedroom.

And Lamps Plus isn't just about lighting... they also have so much more- 
rugs, furniture, decor items- fountains- you name it.
I had the chance to visit their headquarters this spring- and not only do they have everything under the sun you could want for your home- 
they are also the most amazing and kind company that is family owned 
and I am honored to work with them as one of their ambassadors.

And.... they have been so wonderful and supportive of my book- they threw a celebratory dinner at Haven AND  have generously offered a 
$1000 shopping spree
to one lucky French Country Cottage reader in celebration of my book release!
Pretty incredible right?!


I am so excited.

And Lamps Plus made it super simple to enter.

    Lamps plus has so many beautiful ideas for lighting, and I would especially enjoy having, besides inside lighting, an outdoor security light or two. The Bronze 2500 Lumen Motion-Activated 3-Lamp LED Security Light is one I would choose.
