I am a lucky girl! I popped over to Hampton Hostess and saw that I won her giveaway! Looks like Deb at Paper Turtle started me off on a good luck streak! I am so excited! (I just realized this is all exclamation points. We’ve already covered the fact that I am like a four year old when I win something, right?)
So if you are not familiar with Hampton Hostess, first off, she is gorgeous – check out that profile photo. She reminds me of a young Elizabeth Montgomery. She writes about design and entertaining and has a beautiful site. I encourage you to go see for yourselves.
Now, as to lucky moi, I won one of the following four books: Weekend Utopia: Modern Living in the Hamptons, Michael S. Smith: Houses, Houses of the Hamptons, 1880-1910, or Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics. How neat is that?
For those of you who know me well, you know I have a severe addiction to books, especially concerning decorating. entertaining, and travel. I have literally hundreds of them. And since I was very young, I always spent a part of the summer in the Hamptons. (If you’re not sure why, check google images for East Hampton’s Main Beach, South Hampton, or East Hampton. Sheer heaven.) Finally, I love me some Barefoot Contessa (I have all of her books.) So anyone of these books is sure to be a hit with me. Hampton Hostess, you are as generous as you are stylish!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! (Did I mention how excited I am?)
