International Giveaway: "Sanselig Sommer" by Franciska Munck-Johansen






They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
      Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
              Within a dream.

-Ernest Dowson, from ‘They are not long / The weeping and the laughter’



Summer comes and goes so quickly.  Don’t you wish you could capture it?  Well, if you win---or purchase---a copy of Sanselig Sommer (Summer for the Senses) by Franciska Munck-Johansen you’ll have access to summer any time of year.  This colorful hardcover book is like Victoria in the 1980s crossed with Jeanne d’Arc Living, and features the homes and gardens of prominent Scandinavian bloggers.  You’ll love the large pictures of darling children, beaches, bunnies, decorating ideas, and gardening tips.  The pictures take precedent over the text---no knowledge of Norwegian is necessary. 

Highlights include the cottage gardens of Helen (helensdagbok.blogspot.com), my friend Jorunn’s sunporch (villaklaraberg.blogspot.com), and the work of Petra Eriksson and Ingela Broling (romantiskahem.blogspot.com, inspirationivitt.blogspot.com (Lev Vackert's authors).  A bonus visit to Green Gables---I mean---the seaside Prince Edward Island home of Carolyn Aiken (warrengrovegarden.blogspot.com) is featured.  Finally, her entrancing photos are in print.  There’s even a spread of a streamside cottage by this lady I know pretty well, too. 

The experience of this book is as sweet as its many dessert recipes. 
Linger in it as long as a Nordic midsummer night shines.

My very special thanks to the dear, the talented, the indefatigable, the lovely Franciska Munck-Johansen for asking me to be in her breathtaking book.  Enjoy more of stylist/photographer/author at Franciska’s Vakre Verden (Beautiful World).

The contest is open to all, and international entries are welcome!

Greetings, Sandy!

I am sooo excited about this beautiful book. I have been trying to find a copy! I must tell you that tomorrow I leave to meet Carolyn Aitken on Prince Edward Island! How lucky am I?! I 'met' Carolyn about a month ago through blogging and cannot wait to meet her in person and tour her beautiful gardens.

Thank you for the beautiful comment on my blog earlier! I take it as a high compliment. Did I already tell you that I loved your guest appearance on the Nate Berkus show. Your cottage is enchanting...I could get lost on your blog for hours and hours!

I found Jo-Anne Coletti's beautiful book 'The Feminine Home' through your site and can hardly wait til it arrives. She is lovely, lovely!

Thanks for all you do!

Hugs,
Linda

What a GORGEOUS book, what a GORGEOUS Blog! What GORGEOUS decor you do! BREATHTAKING!!!
Any suggestions for us wives who have husbands who don't like this type of decor? I would LOVE to do some of the things you have done, but feel SO limited because my husband is NOT into decor that is feminine. What I have now is more or less 'eclectic', a mix of this and that. I have gone with the darker jewel toned colors, which I like as well, but, I would like to make the decor a tadbit more feminine, but then he complains. It is VERY hard to come to a compromise! My husband was a bachelor till the age of 46! Wow! So he had his own unique style, which included a LOT of his own photography. I have incorporated his photography into our decor, as well. Perhaps I could take our one extra bedroom and decorate it just for 'me'! Go as feminine as I want??!!
I LOVE how you took the blanc color of white, and turned it into a GORGEOUS color! You used LOTS of gathering and puckering of the fabrics, and a LOT of fluff to them as well! My extra bedroom I have is painted yellow. All I would need is to get rid of the bed - although my daughter needs a place to sleep when she comes over, but that is ONLY 'maybe' 5 nights a YEAR! I don't want her to feel left out without a place to sleep, and I'm on a limited budget??? A chair with an ottoman? I don't know? Ottomans are EXPENSIVE!!! There has to be a way to make one! I have an idea! I just need a nice, comfy chair! Then I can use that back bedroom as my own! I could still decorate in white even with the yellow walls, and use the yellow as an accent color. I'm getting ideas now that I am writing this note to you!! Wow!! You are an INSPIRATION!!!! Thank you for ALL these unbelievably GORGEOUS photos!!!
I have also NEVER seen a book SO beautiful as this!!! Wow!! It's one to leave out as a focus point! Sorry about this length of the message! If you have any advice, though, about incorporating more feminine decor with a husband who isn't quite into it, I'd LOVE it!!!
Thanks SO much!

What a nice giveaway! I still have all issues of Victoria magazine and have just started collecting the Jeanne d'Arc living magazine. To have a book combining the feel of both magazines would be awesome. I hope I win!!
