  12. Awesome! But the top of the right column has:
    Become a Fan on Facebook

    Did you mean "Follow" on Twitter or "Friend on Facebook, which are the top-most two where you can "follow" someone or did you mean "Subscribe via e-mail"? That's well below the fold on the sidebar?

  14. Thanks for this opportunity to win something to gussy up my bookshelves with something other than books, like that celadon ceramic statuette of a stylized horse.

  22. Hi Maria,

    It would be a thrill to win this giveaway – over the moon!

  26. I'd follow you anywhere ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually, now I think perhaps I am with both Google accounts….but I'll just comment once. Awesome giveaway, thanks for the opportunity to win such a treat. Enjoy your trip. I'm stuck on the east coast :(. xo

  27. I have been reading your amazing blog for months. Design has been my passion since age 16. I devoted my career to the environment, but never lost touch with this passion. I just โ€œretiredโ€ and your blog inspires me as I create plans to make my next place lovely and elegant. Thanks for all you share!

  28. I am already a follower. I get a lot out of your insight and knowledge. Just reading your blog has helped me avoid some costly paint mistakes. Love the items on the give away today!

  29. Awesome! Finger crossed. I could really use some baskets, and Novica has great options.

  30. Hi Miss!
    Have fun in LA!! Sure wish I was going with you!!!!!!!! Maybe next year??? Be good and hope to speak soon.

  31. Maria, not a day goes by that I don't check you blog for ideas, knowledge and inspiration. We're one month away from moving into our new, custom home and thanks to you it's absolutely lovely. Thank you.

  32. I absolutely LOVE your blog, Maria! Could you be my new Best Friend? ๐Ÿ™‚ The only unfortunate thing about reading your blog is that now I see things in other people's houses that bother me…pinky beige couches that look dirty, competing backsplashes/ countertops, 80's oak kitchen cabinets, etc. etc.

  33. I would love an alpaca throw – reminds me of the time we spent in Peru. Or a hammock (the squirrels ate our old one!)

  34. I adore your blog….you make me smile every day.

    You've made me positively excited about redecorating my space again…thank you!

  35. Really Nice giveaway! I would love to go to your class someday, but in the meantime, I'll continue to enjoy the very helpful and meaningful education you give us on your site. I so enjoy your blog. Thanks so much.

  36. I think I am a follower – I get your newsletter. Love Novica. I ordered a glass tray from them on Amazon that I love.

  37. So much to see on that site: I am really liking one of the magazine racks I saw there as well as some of the desk accessories. Very nice giveaway! Thank you for hosting!
