Bonanza

There are lots of giveaways today. Hope that's okay with you guys.

Interior design:

Jenny at Little Green Notebook has some good advice for those who are having buyers remorse over their traditional furniture. She says don't get rid of it, just add some quirky or modern art and watch it transform your previously unimpressive room into something interesting and fun. And to make your decorating even easier, she's hosting a giveaway from the huge art resource 20x200. The top winner could walk away with a $200 gift certificate and five others will get a $20 gift certificate.

We are installing some new cabinet doors in our apartment so I could definitely use this giveaway from Effortless Style today for two $50 gift certificates to D. Lawless Hardware. I'd be using it towards some funky door pulls.

Food:

Head over to visit Luisa at The Wednesday Chef to hear the official dates for the book tour! I'll be camped outside Powerhouse Books on October 1st with my copy of My Berlin Kitchen.

Certain members of my family enjoy food with a great deal of heat but I'm not sure they've taken their heat love to beer. They'd love to try this recipe at The Kitchn for beer with Sriracha and fresh lime juice. Sounds spicy and refreshing.

Welcome back Roost's Caitlin from her trip to London and Tuscany and while you're there make sure you check out her gorgeous photos of Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey).

Fig season is woefully short. Is it already done? All I know is figs were at Whole Foods one minute and the next they were gone. Literally gone in minutes. But if I can get my hands on another pint of them I'll use them for this Fig and Arugula Flatbread from the always creative Love and Lemons.

Fashion/style:

There's no other way to say this except: eeeeee yayyyyy! Want to win $300 to spend on JCrew jewelry? Yeah, I thought so. Enter at Cup of Jo.

I'm drooling over the latest issue of Rue. They are focused on Texas this time and it certainly doesn't disappoint with stunning interiors and great interviews.


I'm looking forward to another weekend in Pennsylvania with its lush greenery, summer corn, and shady gardens. In between blueberry picking and swimming I'm also planning on curling up with the very first issue of the stunning Gather Journal. Have you checked that out yet?
