Status and Giveaway

My new job is going great.  It is something to get used to of course.  The hours are much more rigid and of course AM (14) has started back to school so it has been a little high pressure around here.  Just another adjustment.  We are getting pretty good at those.  Old pro's around here!

I am trying to get back into the blogging swing of things this week.  To start off slowly I thought I would share a sweet giveaway with all of my wonderful bloggy friends - if you are all still hanging on! ;)

I know I introduced you all to my sister over at Ecletctic Prep, well she is having a giveaway and if you love to entertain you must head over!  I am a huge socializer so I am keeping my fingers crossed or I will add it to my my Santa/ sister list. ;)

Okay she is giveing away two items.  The first is a Kate Spade CD.

This cd has 8 tracks on it that were exclusively written for kate spade by the UK band, Beaumont. The music has a 60s cocktail vibe and would be perfect background music for a cocktail party or a small dinner party.

I would absolutley LOVE to have this CD.  I love all things Britan and I love to have parties with a coktail vibe. 

The second item is the new book on entertaing, Flair by Joe Nye, LA interior designer and party planner. This book has amazing photography capturing beautiful tablescapes. Some of the pictures show many elements of chinoiserie within his design and I simply love how he has put everything together. Gorgeous!!

Now head on over to her blog to find out more about this great giveaway and have a WONDERFUL week!  I hope the last few weeks have been beautiful.  Is anyone ready for fall?


  1. Best wishes with the new job--I hope the hours are easy after it becomes just part of your routine.

  2. Welllllllllll I could head over BUT I think I might have already missed the giveaway. Bah. Sadness abounds!
