Two Hundred Giveaway - Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Interiors

Dear ladies,

I have been a BB (bad blogger!) and hope to have the time to visit my sweet blogging friends very soon....please forgive my absence. You see I have been doing soooo much traveling these last few weeks, really spinning my wheels around here and off flying to some destinations as well. Most of these trips have been work related to my website, but of course I try to sneak in some fun as well:-). So I do hope that you'all are well......some of you I talk to via email and via Twitter, and I love to hear from you and keep in touch!


I am TWO HUNDRED! No....although my birthday is next month, I am definitely NOT two hundred years old (tho' some mornings look & feel like it!), but this is blog post # 200 for me!! Hard to believe that I would find so much to share, and I do hope that you enjoy reading my posts. I started blogging a couple of years ago after my sweet friend Tara from Typing Out Loud (Blogging For Bliss ~ the BOOK) suggested it, as a way to connect with my Shabbyfufu customers. It clearly became much more than that for me. I thoroughly enjoy writing...always have, and wanted to not only connect...but to share and inspire. It's not a popularity contest for me, goodness....I am too old for that~lol~ I truly do blog for bliss! So......thank you for reading, for following (if you do) and I hope that you leave a comment every now and then so that I can connect with your blog as time permits.

A GIVEAWAY as mentioned in my previous post. I have my LAST signed copy of Rachel Ashwell's newest book "Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Interiors" and will be giving it away, drawn randomly. Please leave a comment to be drawn, and if you post this giveaway on your blog leave another comment stating "BLOG" to be entered twice. If you TWITTER....you can receive another entry, just TWEET this and link back to this blog, then leave another comment and let me know! Also.........some of my sweet customers read this blog but don't have a blog. If this is the case you can enter by using the CONTACT form on the website...let me know that you are entering for the Giveaway.


Whew....enough about that, I obviously don't have enough books for everyone.....so I am sharing some antique French artwork that I scanned from the La Mode Illustre books that I bought at the Flea Market when I was in Paris last year. Enjoy....share....click on to enlarge and use in your artwork, they are lovely!




We have lots of lovely things coming to the website at Shabbyfufu....over the weekend. This is also why I have been M.I.A.....working in my Studio and working with the FABULOUS and very dear ladies who also sell on the website. Here are a few previews, I hope that you can visit soon!




Have a beautiful weekend, thank you, thank you for reading.....and good luck on the GIVEAWAY!
~xoxo~
Janet
