elements of style book giveaway


It's your lucky day! Remember the fun girl's room I just revealed, well, my sweet
client gave me a thank you present ~ Erin Gates' newly released book,
 Elements of Style,
but I'd already received my own copy I'd ordered. Of course, the gift was special and
 I wanted to keep it. It took me about two seconds to decide what to do with my copy.
You guys are truly the BEST,
thank you so much for reading and the encouragement you send my way every day!


I thought I'd style my coffee table with Erin's book, but got carried away, and for
 fun I shopped my house and found elements she used in the vignette on the cover of
 her book.



I haven't had a chance to read much of the book yet, but so far Erin is an absolute
 delight, incredibly talented and inspiring!

Here a few posts from the past where I chatted about her...

Erin's black cabinet on the front of her book showed up on our Craigslist,
I went to see it, and passed. :(

My favorite knock-off Frye boots were a recommendation from Erin.

DIYs in the photo above...

Craigslist Hutch in Annie Sloan French Linen here
DIY Leopard Tray from $2.99 Ikea Tray here
Coffee Table Transformation here
Greek Key Chair Reupholster a $10 Garage Sale Find here
(forgive the last two, the posts were my second month blogging) :)


And finally, the giveaway... 
a Rafflecopter giveaway


Good luck and thank you, friends!

That's so funny. I have the picture frame that's on the front of her book. Except mines out in the garage somewhere. I need to dust that thing off! I would love the book. Clearly, I could use her help in figuring out how to use things I've already got. Thanks for the giveaway.

Unbelievable how many items you found in your house that coordinate with her style. You both have great taste!

Ann said...

Your approach to decorating is similar to the author's, and the photos of both your home and from her book are lovely. I'd love to see more by winning the book! Thanks, Ann
