200th post giveaway

Apologies for the lack of post yesterday. I'm busy, busy, busy finishing up loads of work before I head off for holidays soon and there just wasn't enough time left in the day to get around to posting on my poor, neglected blog.  Anyway, I'm going to make up for that today because it's my 200th post!  Hip, hip, hooray!!! When I first started blogging at the start of the year I didn't think I'd make it to 20 posts let alone 200 posts. And to celebrate this momentous occasion (well, momentous to me anyway), I have a gorgeous book to give away to one of the lovely, lovely people that drop by my blog.

Here in Australia we have a magazine titled Madison - it contains mostly fashion and fluff, but at the back of each edition they have a lifestyle section that features the home of a well-known fashion, business, media or creative person.  The homes are usually quite gorgeous and just recently they put together a book, 'Madison Living', which contains a number of the homes that have featured in the magazine in the past.  Here are a few (rather poor) shots from my crappy old camera, but I do promise you that this glossy book is quite lovely when you actually see it in the light of day. It has some beautiful pictures in it.







So, if you'd like this copy of 'Madison Living', all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 9.00am Saturday 3rd October (Melbourne time).  Then, after I've had my breakfast, drank copious amounts of green tea and read the papers, I'll randomly draw a comment and make arrangements with the lucky person to send the book to them a.s.a.p.

Thank you all for so much for visiting Glimpse of Style from time to time.  Lee :)

Congratulations Lee on 200 posts! This looks like lovely book to win. Here's hoping your son picks out my name again. I treasured Paris: Made by Hand and visited the many shops listed in the book when I went to Paris. I still keep talking about that trip to Paris and the shopping was one of the highlights. Thank you for all fun giveaways.
