I Won! I Won! I Won!

Wasn’t I just writing about how fabulous giveaways are?

While I didn’t win the one I focused on hereyet … I did manage to score a prize from our friends at Charles and Hudson!

What a pleasant surprise it was to start the week with an email letting me know I’d won a copy of The Domino Book of Decorating. Aren’t I lucky?! I can’t wait to see it. And, it’s always nice getting a nod from Charles & Hudson. (Even if they did shave a decade off This D*mn House's age. They can shave a decade off me anytime they’d like!)

What’s funny is, I didn’t really realize I was entering anything! I just happened to read a C&H post that started out by saying: This Mother's Day forget the gifts and instead pick a project that you and your mom can share in building together. We're not talking about remodeling the kitchen or laying tile (unless you and your mom are up for it), but rather projects that are low stress and can be completed in a day.

Low stress. In a day. Yeah. Right. At This D*mn House? I, of course, had to comment by saying that the mother and I ARE redoing the kitchen. In fact, I took her floor-shopping on Mother’s Day! Well, that IS what she wanted to do, and it was, HER day. Too funny.

Now if I can only hit Powerball. (And if not, I’ll be perfectly happy with the SKIL tools!)
