~The Whimsical Giveaway~ Flea Market Style Magazine and More! Part two

After a whirlwind week with my family here,
we said goodbye last night..
My parents heading home to northern Ohio.
My Aunt and Uncle to North Carolina.

And then this afternoon
I remembered I had not posted the 
other items in the giveaway yet!

Along with the issue of 
Flea Market Style magazine,
{Which you can see here in the original post!}
here are a couple of 
whimsical items for your front porch!

I love whimsical things.
{I even love the word whimsical!}
I adore decorating our front porch.
I have so many sweet things I keep up
all year long and a few I change out as the seasons change.
A bit of whimsy is fun to look at
while I rock away reading or working on my laptop!

Besides the issue of 
Flea Market Style magazine,
the person who wins will also receive
their very own bit of whimsy! 

And this wonderful book!
Loved it!
Reminded me of the year I lived in Montezuma, Ga.!
This is a fun page turner, with easy breezy reading. 

"Heart in the Right Place" by Carolyn Jourdan

About the Book! 

"When my mother suddenly became ill with a heart problem, I was drafted to replace her in my father’s medical office near the Smoky Mountains in east Tennessee. I didn’t relish the idea of taking any leave from my glamorous job as a U.S. Senate lawyer, but it was a genuine emergency and I was assured I would be needed for only a couple of days.
How could I say no?
So I rushed home from Washington to fill in as a receptionist for a rural family doctor in East Tennessee. But then, to my growing horror, the “couple of days” stretched into weeks and months and years.
Heart in the Right Place, an alternately laugh-out-loud-funny and cry-your-eyes-out-serious memoir about the down-sizing of my life from white marble columns, gilded domes, and Neiman Marcus to naugahyde, peeling linoleum, and Wal-mart, and a complete cast of east Tennessee characters! "

My little vision for the giveaway winner..
Relaxing on your porch,
reading this awesome book,
taking time to sit back and look at how
adorable your porch {or patio!} is after 
getting unique ideas from
Flea Market Style magazine!

So there you have it!

The complete giveaway! 
~The Spring/Summer issue of FMS magazine
~A welcome sign so the critters on your mountain

~A tiny bird house with a Dragonfly motif!

it's like to live in the mountains of east Tennessee!

The sign and bird house are adorable. And who doesn't like sunflowers. Book sounds interesting too. What a fun giveaway.

Donna said...

Do I see sunflower seeds with those other pretties? :) The sign and the birdhouse are adorable! The book sounds like a great read. I could see myself sitting in a rocker on my porch reading the book and looking at the pretties while the sunflowers bloom :)
Glad you had a wonderful time with your family!

Bianca said...

Love that Welcome-sign and would love to read that book, but..... I don't have a porch!! No porch or patio to put lovely whimsical things on/in.... ;-(
And although I would love to be able to win this, please spare yourself the shippingcosts.
Count my comment for a spot for Donna (one extra beside her own 2 spot ;-))
Have a good sunday (over here it is sundaymorning now) and 'till next time!
(((hug))) <- arms around you, Bianca
