A Thank You Giveaway!


I cannot believe it's already time for my first giveaway! I'm ecstatic to have reached this point. I would like to thank all of you who have taken an interest in Brambly and decided to follow along-I am so grateful. My  giveaway contains two items that have inspired me to make the most of my surroundings. Perfect English by Ros Byam Shaw, is a beautiful book that exemplifies English eclecticism and successfully avoids being too cliche or grandiose. P. Allen Smith's Garden Home Deck contains 50 inspiring cards that offer up beautiful ideas and recipes for putting together gorgeous container gardens all year long. P.Allen Smith is a man with tremendous style and talent, his garden designs have inspired us to try many new things at Brambly.

What a great give-away! I LOVE English decor: my mom does more of that style, and I would LOVE to, but it takes a knack, and I'm just not too great at it...yet. Hopefully I'll catch on. I do have a gardening book of P. Allen Smith's and I go back to it over and over. I LOVE the way he gardens. Thanks for this fun giveaway on your wonderful blog! :)
