2 Wonderful giveaways, Jeanne d'Arc Style and a sneak peek...

I seem to have caught a nice lil bug here and feelin a lil crappy to put it nicely...but I really wanted to share these 2 wonderful giveaways with you...The first giveaway is from the lovely Jana of the beautiful blog Collected Treasures, she is actually having a monthly giveaway on her blog...how great is that :)

Click here to enter giveaway!



The second one I already posted about here It is for the lovely Kathleen of the beautiful blog Musings From A French Cottage

Please...Take a moment to visit their beautiful blogs and enter their wonderful giveaways and just enjoy your visit...I know I always do!

Now for the Jeanne d'Arc Style part...well all I can say is this....And So It Begins...A new obscession that is lol Thanks to the lovely Carol of Maynard Greenhouse who was ever so sweet to send me the Jeanne d'Arc magazine as part of my winnings from her giveaway..that magazine and I seem to be joined at the hip :) I take it with me everywhere and right now feeling crappy like I am...I am literally going from the couch to my bed and back and always with that book...cause lets be honest...should you really call this beauty a magazine??? But when we were taking pictures of my winngings, I noticed that I had something in my home that was in the magazine..and add that with some tiny pewter chairs and metal flower frog and the lovelies that Carole sent me and well I am on my way to embracing this new to me style :) Don't get me wrong..I still love all my stuff...but I am looking at my things in a new light...The only complaint that I have about this magazine is that the pictures are sooo amazingly beautiful and I truly don't mind that I don't understand a word...at least until I came across the gorgeous pictures of FOOD and what I can assume are the recipes lol my stars how I wanted to be able to understand more than the pictures then :) sooo I was soo thrilled when I found out that they were actually bringing out the magazine in English this month...oh the joy :) Look at the pictures below and see what I mean about on to a great start....See my wire basket just like the one in the magazine picture on the top left hand corner...and to think I paid a whole $1.91... I knew I was getting a good deal :)



Now here is a sneak peak at the picture wall in my bebe studio...still need to add more pictures and put more things away...or should I say a TON of things :)


I love this wall cabinet...I paid a whole $10 for it...Gaudy?...maybe...but tis me :) I just need to add the glass shelves and my treasures...


Ok it is almost that magical hour again...2 am...so I think I better go try and sleep for a few hours before it is time to get up and start it all...all over again.


But before I leave you...Let us take a moment today to think of all those special people that we lost on Sept.11, 2001 on that awful day that forever changed our Beautiful Country and us... And whether you agree with these wars or not...God bless all our men and woman who are still in the fight...Bring them home safely to their families and loved ones...and Like I said before...God Bless America...Again


Until next time dear friends....

The Jeanne d' Arc magazine had the very same affect on me the first time I received it a few months ago! I've been painting everything around my house a pale gray ever since :) I think your studio is just lovely! Have a really wonderful weekend!!!

Rose I just love reading your post and not just because you mentioned me...lol. Your enthusiasm pops off the page! Your sudio is looking fab and that cabinet is not gaudy at all. The first time I saw that magazine I was in a trance too. It's just such a relaxed and easy way to live.
Hope you feel better soon.....but I know when I'm home there's nothing I like better then getting lost in a great decorating book.
xo,
Carole

Thanks for sharing a page of the Jeanne D'arc magazine and that is neat that you have a wire basket like the one in the mag.

I hope that you are feeling better soon and have a great weekend

Oh Rose,
I almost forgot the link you have here close to the bottom Country French Antiques in Louisville KY I was There! My sister lives there and we visited. It was really fun to see all the great stuff they had. Very old and crusty. My kind of stuff.

The wall in your studio is bliss. I have a thing for angels and cherubs, you know! I have yet to see the magazine,but I am soon going to order one. I have a sickness when it comes to magazines, and I don't want a cure.
Hugs,
June

Hello Rose, gracias por la visita a mi blog, me diste un poco de ánimo justo cuando anoche me dije a mí misma que ya no quería seguir con esto del blog, ocupa demasiado tiempo. Bueno, me ha encantado leerte y conocer tu Bebe Studio, muy intersante y tan lleno de cosas preciosas. Me hiciste pensar mucho en mi madre también, ahora mismo voy a hablar con ella.
Muchos cariños
María Cecilia, de Chile
