Giveaway.......

My stuff but image courtesy of Home Beautiful. 
... I have a scanning committe and a stalking committee

...you'll never guess of what! Now, I have a swag of these magazines sitting in a neat little pile in my laundry... as hubby went a bit overboard.

Can I digress for a millisecond and tell you that I received a phone call from our accountant (Hi Matt!) the other day, "Hi A-M, I just wanted to tell you that Luke (hubby) is so proud of you... he has been bouncing all over the office this morning singing your praises, handing out magazines and saying, 'it wasn't me, none of it was me, it was all my wife'... just thought you might like to know". I sat with my head in my hands and cried (bit fragile at present). I love his guts.

Ok, yes digression over.... Home Beautiful magazines - I have 5 that I am prepared to part with, for overseas readers who can't get their hands on a copy. Leave a comment here and I will get the 'barrel boys' to draw out 5 readers on the weekend and I will post the winners on Monday, next week. And you're not counted in this Miss Andrea as yours is already on it's way... but you can still comment pet!....and so can you Aussie lovelies! .... and thank you for all your beautiful emails and texts... I am working my way through my inbox so I will reply... eventually. Oh how do I get back on the study wagon!?
Have a great day. 
A-M xx

  1. What a sweet hubby. I would love to win a copy. Yeah. You did mean overseas as in anywhere that is not Australia? Is Chicago, IL (USA) too far?

  11. Dear A-M

    I too have followed your postings for quite some time and have loved following the progress of the building/decorating of your beautiful home in beautiful Oz! I am a complete magazine nut and would love, love, love to add the copy actually displaying your hard work, so please count me in for the draw made by your beautiful boys this weekend.

    By the way, have your found something else to work on, or are your and your hubby still looking.

    Also, I am in Japan, is that a problem if I win??

    Hugs

I of course already have a copy or two of the mag, so good luck to all the overseas bloggers, you certainly won't be disappointed if you're lucky enough to win this giveaway ! K xx

  14. I feel so frustrated that so many fantastic design magazines are not available here in the states. I would love to win a copy of Home Beautiful with the article on your wonderful house. I find your decorating style to be completely fresh and original. By the way, your boys are precious! And you are such a great mom. Your pride in them is just lovely to see.

  22. Hi A-M, I would LOVE to win a copy of your mag! I live in Hong Kong and did scope out our local store for a copy the other day, but alas, not one in sight. I thought it might have been because all your fans in HK may have beat me to it (!!) but perhaps they just don't stock it. I'm sure it's the former:)

    Would love to see your house in print!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I totally love how you have shared so much of who you are through sharing your home with us. I think our homes are such an important part of our family life. Would LOVE to read and see the mag!!! Waiting patiently with crossed fingers here in Jacksonville, Florida!

  28. After reading all your OS fans' comments, I realise how lucky I am that I live in the neighbouring suburb! I rushed out and bought the mag too. Your house is wonderful and inspiring. I hope the new owners love it as much as you and the boys have.

  30. Oh Hi Dr Shayne!!!... that's my dentist!! Amazing who comes out of the woodwork! Dr Shayne, we still don't have any wobbly teeth... which we are very distressed over... so much so that we are 'imagining' that they are wobbly..... to no avail.... he just wants to lose his teeth so desperately... coz all his friends are gummy boys! A-M xx
