{happy birthday + a giveaway}



Exactly one year ago today, I wrote my very first post on this blog! In such a short time blogging has quite literally changed my life; I’ve found a wonderful creative outlet, and I’ve had the chance to meet some incredibly amazing and talented people. All I wanted a space to share my home projects and some of my favorite things, but I got so much more than that! And for that I thank all of YOU!


This year has meant so much to me. Thank you to everyone for visiting my petite blog and for all your lovely comments, you are all amazing and I appreciate every one of you!


I know the future holds some wonderful things, and as I leap forward I hope you will continue to travel along on this journey with me!


And to give back & say thank you in a small way, I am giving away a copy of the coveted Domino: the Book of Decorating {a MUST have}; if you already own one, enter any ways and pass it along to a lucky friend :) This book is a constant reference to me!


To enter all you need to do is:

1- Follow this blog via Google Friends Connect {top left corner of this blog}

2- Leave a comment here to tell me so!

3- You can add extra comments/entries for tweeting or posting this giveaway elsewhere

That's it, nice and simple! Giveaway open to all countries and contest will close by midnight Feb 15th. Winner will be chosen via random.org. Bonne chance to each of you xox

Congratulations! I started a year ago also and I agree...it has been life changing in a small way. I have enjoyed sharing my passion for design with others who seem as obsessed as I do :)

Mosaicista Appassionata said...

happy birthday. you did a marvellous job! sharing your passion does have an impact on us in different ways that cannot be easily described or quantified. i have been busy with new directions, mosaic prints on fabric, for one, and this would not have happened if it was not for the blog.
do you accept entries from europe?if yes, i am in

My style is a little more bohemian than yours but I love it all!
