GIVE AWAY--GIVE AWAY---You will LOVE this one!

A couple of weeks ago I was in 
Barnes & Noble
killing a little time.
I always pull out the Somerset Magazines 
because you never know what you will 
find in them.
Well, 
THIS TIME
I found that my sweet friend, Kris,
has a full feature in there about
HER BLOG!
You'll see some of these pictures-
I stole these right off her blog---shhhhh----
Sadly, her home doesn't look like this anymore.
Their house is up for sale and she 
has "un-chic'ed" it.
So sad!
If you visit her blog you can see how it looks now.
&
&
Can you believe it?
AND
She is so flipping humble 
I can hardly stand it.
Anyway,
I asked her if I could do a post about it
and give away a copy of the magazine.
She said-yes-
We are true girlfriends
although we have never met in person..
BUT we are going to.
Yes, we are---
hopefully yet this fall.

 I love her hubby,Terry, too. 
He is just THAT GUY...always
helping someone out in some way.

I am gonna lay a big ol' hug on that 
big lug when I meet him...shhh...
It's a surprise for MyHero
AND Terry.  snicker

So my friends...
All you have to do is 
tell me you want to be in the drawing-
along with your mother's maiden name,
your social security number,
your husband's blood type and
two hundred dollars sent to my PO box
(so it can't be traced)

That's it!
Just leave me a comment.
I will pick a winner next Sunday,
October 11th.
That gives everyone a chance to
sign up that doesn't get here on a 
daily basis.

AND..
if you DON'T KNOW Kris
you are missing one of the best and 
biggest-hearted bloggers in 
BLOGGYDOM.
I  think I made the word Bloggydom up-
feel free to use it--
you're welcome.

So...what are you waiting for?
Stop dawdling!
Leave me a comment..
and if you don't have an email address
attached to your name let me know
how I can reach you...

Good luck.
See you tomorrow!

  4. Diana, Please sign me up for that drawing. I love Kris' style. She has inspired many with her make overs. Don't tell this but , she's kind of like the used door Queen. LOL. Can make an old door work anywhere. Gotta love that. I am so envious of you two getting together. Better wear your pee-pee pants. :):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Someone has a bigger heart than you? It is amazing how we make such connections with people we have never met. Looks like a fun read!

  6. Sign me up!! I'm not familiar with her blog but I"m gonna check it out!! I hope you do get to meet in person. I actually met one of my blogging friends this past weekend, totally by accident. We just happened to be in the same place (I was about 2 hours from home) at the same time and I thought to myself "I think that's Nicole" and sure enough it was! Small, small world :0! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes, please! That looks like a great magazine!
    I am going over and check out her blog.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ha! I just came from her blog! And yes, I'd like to enter. Pick me!!! (said in my most humble voice) LOL

  9. I love her blog and visit almost every day to see what she is up to. I can't think of anyone more deserving of a feature in Somerset than Kris! Would love to win a copy...hugs....

    ReplyDelete
  10. Since I don't-rock-to this kind of decorating, and many of your Readers do, please do not add my name, to your drawing.

    It's only fair.

    'Cause Murphy's Law seeeezzzzzz.... She who isn't into this, would be the winner! We all know that!!!!! -grin-

  11. Yes, add me to your list! I've not seen the new issue, but this is one I pick up when I find it. I hope you and Kris get to meet. I recently met Anita of Cedar HIll Ranch, and through the years have had the pleasure of meeting other bloggers. Blogging fosters some very special friendships.
    Have a great day!

  12. Hi Diana! :)
    I have never seen that magazine before. I visit Kris's blog often and saw her post on being featured. Her home decorating is something magical and beautiful! It is all so very pretty and was so happy to see her get a feature in a magazine!
    I would love to win a copy of the magazine...fingers crossed!
    Have enjoyed visiting your blog, you have so many pretty things here!!

  13. Kris truly has one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen! Love her! I also love how easy peasy your giveaways are. ;) You never make us repost, follow on facebook, twitter, etc. Ain't nobody got time for that! Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I hate the way selling a house works. I always wonder who are these stupid people who can't see past the owner's decor and picture their own taste? I'd love walking in seeing her love and time everywhere, even though it's not my look. My name need not be in the drawing either...I have too many magazines to sift through at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great giveaways. Greetings and best wishes!

  16. Good Morning my Friend. You are the sweetest ever. Thank you for this shout out about the feature and thank you for giving these wonderful blogging peeps another chance to win this fab magazine. I wish I could give everyone a copy. Everyone is so deserving of one with how they support and follow my crazy decor life on my blog. Thank you Diana you are the best buddy anyone could have. Thank you.
    Kris

  17. Good morning! I LOVE Kris to pieces. She's a true soul sister. Everything she touches is just pure magic. I do hope you get to visit with her and Terry....please squeeze her for me! Thanks for a chance to win the magazine, Diana. xo, T.

    ReplyDelete
  18. How generous of you. I have followed Kris for a few years now and each morning her blog is one of the first ones I go to for the latest inspiration. She has so much talent and I was not surprised that she was featured in this magazine. I would love a copy. Thanks for the chance. I have not blogged in so long and realize how much I miss it. Have a wonderful day!

  19. How nice of you Diana! I must go over and meet Kris. Have a wonderful day! ♥

  21. Hi,
    Kris is so fun, and I met her when I started following you. :-) You shared a story about her. Only thing I wonder about, will your Hero and Terry get into talking Packers vs Bears. :-))
    LOL
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  22. I can't believe I am saying this, but where are the days when all I had to do was read blogs. It use to be my favorite part of the day. Now we have so many things to do, instagram,pinterest, facebook, twitter (I refuse to get a twitter account), periscope (I refuse to do this too), bloglovin, etc... glad your back too...Can we still purchase your book? I am such a procrastinator.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm in - she says - waving her hand wildly in the air!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh, I have been so delinquent in visiting! What a gorgeous studio Kris has...Wow! I love Sommerset Life or any of there magazines, what an honor for her!

  25. Diana, Yes, I'd love a chance to enter in your giveaway! This sounds like a delightful magazine with many great ideas for the home.

    And Barnes and Noble is one of my favorite places to go. I love browsing through the children's books when I'm there, and of course, the coffee section hehehehe.

    love, ~Sheri

  26. I know that when Kris finally gets moved her new place will be just as amazing. She is so talented. xo Laura

  32. I was visiting over at Kris's 'place' the other day, and I saw the new staged-for-sale version of her lovely home. Not quite the over-the-top chic-ness that we are used to over there, but still really lovely. I hope her place sells fast, and for a lot of $$$, so she can get to working on her new place .... and we can all follow along.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congrats to your friend! I'll have to stop by her blog. Love that magazine :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I used to subscribe to Somerset...I'll have to check out her blog...Congratulations to her..That's a huge accomplishment..

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great post and giveaway Diana. Oh I want to enter. I love Kris and her hubby. They are a very talented team!! I knew about her feature when she posted it and was thrilled for her. It's a fabulous accomplishment. I can't wait to see the issue, but keeping fingers crossed to win.
    Kris is the best of blogland!! Hugs, cm

    ReplyDelete
  38. I absolutely love Kris' blog! How awesome that she was featured in a magazine. Consider me "entered" in the drawing!

  43. I saw that feature on Kris' blog and sadly now I have seen her house undone. I would love a peek at that magazine in person!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love her home and blog! Need to go check out her undone house...won't be the cool I love, I'm sure! Sigh.
    Bloggydom...lol. I always say bloggyland but I like yours better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have been following Kris's blog for a long time now. I know how hard it is for her to take a lot of things down as I had to strip my house almost naked to sell it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know, I used to be in Barnes & Noble all the time. Sadly, the one near me is almost worthless...rarely have a book, rarely will order for you, etc. Anyway, I'm thrilled for Kris!! She is truly a sweetheart and deserves this recognition.

    Thank you for making the giveaway easy ~ hate those Rafflecopter things with FB, Pinterest, Twitter, IG and all known history of one's family. :)

  58. Well, I might be too late for the give-away (I don't know where I've been, do you?) but anything with an article about sweet Kris is well worth having. I haven't seen this magazine on the stands, probably for the simple reason that my hubby does all the shopping now because he thinks I spend too much money..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  65. I know, it's so sad that Kris has had to De-Kris her beautiful home! At least there are numerous magazines around that will forever chronicle her home! Blessings, Cindy

  66. Hope the grands are feeling better.
    My mother gave me my grandfather's silver flatware. I use it for holiday dinners. And like to polish it. Your silver looks so pretty.
    Love the picture. Isn't it sad when progress takes over.
    I love Somerset Life. I have to limit myself on those magazines. So I try to stick to that one, Sew Somerset, Somerset Life, Somerset Studio and Memories. Very nice your friends blog was in an issue.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh... you would not be happy with my tarnished silver. I do think I need to polish. I will try your method. My friend's mother would be so disgusted with her silver, she would schedule trips to her home so she could polish it for her. Nice lady! Somerset publications have become such a staple in my life. I love Where Women Create Business and Where Women Cook. They are so full of great information. So, throw me in your top hat of names! If I win, I will take the day off and relax and read it, cover to cover.

    Hmm, maybe I shouldn't win then. Lord knows there's *plenty* to do to get ready for winter!
