A truly special book giveaway - Stealing Magnolias

The cover alone would be wonderful to have. But you have a chance to win the whole book just by commenting on this post. You have until January 3, 5PM EST to leave a comment. The winner will be chosen by a random draw and announced the next day. Good luck!

Here's the editorial review: Debra Shriver tells the story of finding and restoring a house in the French Quarter of New Orleans in the wake of Katrina. Part love letter, part scrapbook; readers are given a rare tour of this enigmatic city. The book is a cultural guidebook and historical reference of America's most European city, featuring the work of more than 20 photographers and artists. Chapters highlight food and entertaining, decorating, gardens, landscapes, local traditions, interiors, and architecture. via Amazon

The gorgeous aforementioned cover

so chic



perfect


We had a huge magnolia tree on the farm where I grew up and just looking at this picture I can literally smell the blossoms.

The book can be purchased here.

Oh I just found your blog and how lovely it is :) I would love to have the book for my design library. I am just new to blogging, but I am adding you to my blog list.
One question, How do you know what to blog? You see have many ideas in my head and then when I sit down to write it, it sounds dumb on paper. Is that ever a problem for anyone else?

I live in New Orleans and keep eyeing this book when I see it on blogs and in stores. We have a big magnolia tree in front of our current home that I'm going to miss when our home sells (we are going to be building a new house soon). This book would be a lovely lovely giveaway to receive! Thanks for the chance!
