Giveaway: The Things That Matter by Nate Berkus




Photos by Roger Davies

First off, I must apologize for my hiatus.  I started an MBA program online in late summer and if I go to bed at midnight it's early.  Since I work full-time there's little opportunity for blogging at this time in my life.

I'm thrilled to host a giveaway of the newly released book The Things That Matter by Nate Berkus with photography by Roger Davies.  I can't quite believe I'm actually in it.  My special thanks to Nate and Roger for a stunning book.  Definitely worth buying.

It's not just lovely homes, it's the stories behind what we collect and our homes.  Brace yourself: Nate recalls his life story, both funny and tragic.

Oh Sandy how wonderful! You are such an inspiration to me. I'm so happy for you.

I love Nate and know his tragic story all too well. I remember his show when he talked about it. So sad.

I'm so glad you are in his book, you two are meant to know each other.

This is a fabulous giveaway!!! We can all use a little inspiration.

Congratulations on being in the book , your are a wonderful inspiration. It takes great discipline to study on-line, I admire your dedication. Hugs, HHL

auntiejenni said...

through our own set of tragical circumstances, we had to leave our home of 27 years and move to tiny cottage on an island. it's been an interesting experience to build a new nest so to speak in a house that doesn't belong to us. i realize home is wherever you live and that you can still grace something that isn't yours with the things that are yours and decorate it with love. and hope. i would love to have this book....maybe it would help to inspire me more. i also love your little playhouse. it has been my dream to have one and i probably won't, but i can look at yours and pretend.

Charlotte Smith said...

You and your studio are beautiful!! And what a lovely book :)

Mariann said...

I missed hearing form you. Glad you are back to blogging and good for you for pursuing more education.
