Reinforcements Have Arrived & My 1st Giveaway

(Giveaway Now Closed)

Hi everyone,

I'm sitting here with my good friend, Crystal Dorsey of Olive Rue and we're playing around with Blogger today. Because  I'm technically blog challenged, Crystal is showing me some tips and tricks. We've changed the background color to a light aqua. How does it look?  We're also playing around with hyper links, photos and all that good stuff.

In other news...be sure to swing by my store at: JaneCoslickCottage Collection.com I've just added a new Bellamy painting. It's the triple oyster painting and it's gorgeous.

And I'm excited to offer my first giveaway which will be an autographed copy of Cottages. This book was written by Brian Coleman & Douglas Kiester and it features several of the cottages I've restored and designed here at Tybee. To enter just leave me a comment on this post. Also if you don't have a blog please be sure to leave your name and e-mail address. I would love to know what area you are visiting from. The drawing will be held on Wednesday, Novermber 3rd at 5:00PM EST. Good luck!




And because every post is better with photos.... we leave you with a photo of my buddy, Putty. He belongs to my good friends ,Bobby and Suzanne..
This shutter headboard was a" trash to treasure" find. ...someone had discarded them ( probably to replace them with new vinyl shutters).  Little did they know. .They would never have believed their old peeling-many-coats wooded shutters would end up hanging on a wall ,featured in a book, and enjoyed by so many. LUCKY ME!!!!

Fingers crossed for the gorgeous book!

This book would be my definition of owning a cottage one day. I love to win.

Oh, how exciting! That book looks amazing. Everything on your site is always amazing. After a visit to your site I always want to put on a fun tropical outfit, BBQ some fresh fish, blend up a margarita, and just relax in the sun on the porch of some imagined cottage designed by you. :-)

I found out about you several years back when I was looking for a place for my husband and I to stay on our anniversary. I stumbled across one of your cottages and fell in love with your style of decorating. I was thrilled to see that you have a blog. I sure hope I win the book!

I am so honored that you would come by my little blog and say Hi and invite me to visit yours. My favorite magazine is Coastal Living and I'm going on 10 yrs. of subscribing....so I have read about you! And I believe I've seen your name on 'The Lettered Cottage.'? I think I may have visited your shop too. I LOVE that Bellamy Oyster painting...being an artist myself helps me to admire it all the more. Thank you again for visiting me...I am adding you to my bloglist and your shop to my 'shops list'. ox~ kerrie
