There are some events in life that cannot be captured fully through the lens of a camera. And these events seem fully known only when we take them in with our own eyes, every frame to its fullest. Several weeks ago, on a warm and drizzly South Carolina evening, we celebrated something special. We celebrated with beautiful cakes and simple flowers, handmade confetti and bottled cokes. East and west coast cousins played under the white string lights. And while the music played, we, her friends and family, took in each frame to its fullest. We were celebrating my beautiful sister, Barb.
I was so incredibly happy for my sister, this gal who had put so many long hours of sweat and tears into a project, a beauty-filled book about furniture techniques and before|afters, Furniture Makeovers, published through Chronicle Books.
Today, I am really excited to be a part of Chronicle Books' blog tour for Barb's book, Furniture Makeovers. I'm thrilled to be able to offer a signed copy of Furniture Makeovers and a Knack tote bag to one lucky reader! There are several ways you can enter below. (By the way, several bloggers will be giving away signed copies of Barb's book. Visit Chronicle's blog post about the blog tour here to view the full list.)
I also wanted to share the following video with you. It was taken during the launch party that I talked about above. You guys, if this doesn't bring a smile to your face, I'm not sure what will. Enjoy! And good luck on the giveaway! (A giveaway winner will be announced next Monday, July 22.)
