Did You Know…. and A Giveaway….

dianne's hcc book

……that the author of these two wonderful collectible books NOW has her own blog?

Yes, C. Dianne Zweig is now blogging (click HERE) about collecting those sweet treasures that so many of us gals love to scout out and read about.

Dianne has a keen eye for cute, whimsy and adorable! So please navigate your mouse on over to her “house” to have a visit.

Dianne has been so kind to me and has featured a few of my former ETSY listings on her blog. **Thank you, Dianne!**

And as a little thank you to you sweet peoples, I am having a giveaway for one of Dianne’s books. Just leave me a comment on THIS POST and indicate which book you would like to have. If you would like to give a shout out on your blog about the giveaway, I will add your name twice. Just be sure to let me know that you shouted out, okay? ** insert a smiling face here **. If you don’t have a way of leaving a comment, then you can just email me and let me know you are interested in the giveaway. I will draw the winner on Monday night – Pacific Standard Time.

Till then….happy weekend!

Do something fun and memorable – and housework does NOT count. :)

Hi Becky....
I have both of those books and love them.

I have visited her blog often~very informative.

I posted today about my son....pop over there and you will know what path he is taking towards being in the Air Force.

Hugs and I intend to have some fun this weekend~not including housework~lol

Sinta Renee said...

I can imagine that both books are to drool over but please put my name in the hat for Hot Kitchen & Home Collectables. I actually plan on getting some paint and go into my garage and see what I can repurpose/revamp... because I am ready for a change, something fresh and it doesn't look like planting flowers will be a possiblility!

Terri Gordon said...

Hi Becky, wow those books look wonderful. I love them both, but the first one is so beautiful. Would love to own it. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of those beautiful books. Love to visit your blog. Have a wonderful day. Terri
