    A Hand-Drawn Holiday Giveaway: Chelsea Harp Designs

    holiday gifts & giveaways on from @janemaynard

    Last year I had all kinds of giveaways set up for the holidays, but this year I took it easy. But I think we need a little bit of giveaway fun around here, don’t you?

    On Friday I mentioned an Etsy shop that I recently discovered that I am loving. Chelsea Harp Designs sells hand-drawn prints, featuring quotes and sayings perfect for many places in the home and the holidays!

    Chelsea Harp Designs: Oh Come Let Us Adore Him print

    Chelsea graciously sent me my favorite Christmas print of hers, Oh Come Let Us Adore Him. It looks beautiful on our Christmas mantel, and I’m even thinking of framing it to hang all year.

    Be sure to check out Chelsea’s shop – her prints are perfect for gifting!

    Giveaway time! For this giveaway we will have three winners! Each winner will receive the “Cook Eat Be Happy” print, which I absolutely LOVE. Simply leave a comment on this post to enter the giveaway!* The 3 random winners for this giveaway were comments #30, #40 and #41. Congratulations, ladies!

    Friday Show and Tell

    Happy Friday! I have a few fun things to share today!

    derek on netflix - my new favorite show!

    First, how did I not know about Derek before this week? SO GOOD. Derek is a comedy-drama from Ricky Gervais that is on Netflix and I watched the whole season in one day. (I was sick in bed and Derek was the only upside to that incredibly boring day!) I’m gonna say it even though it’s cheesy – this show will make you laugh and it will make you cry. And cry some more. I seriously love this show.

    Second, I discovered a cool website started by a friend of a friend called With Love, From Brooklyn. The friend of a friend is chef Dara and her site features gift sets made of artisan treats from Brooklyn. The site is filled with all kinds of deliciousness and super cool stuff, including some really fun ideas for Father’s Day. So fun!

    Here are my posts on Cosmo this week!

    I’m done! Now it’s your turn to share!

    Bonjour! I have more French stuff for you!

    I’ve written about Le Creuset several times so you already know I love them, and, really, who doesn’t? Every Le Creuset piece I have is wonderful and perfect and works like a charm. If you’re looking for gift ideas for people who love to cook, anything from Le Creuset will be a winner, but I will offer one specific idea: the butter crock. That crock rocks. I give it away as a gift all the time.

    Today we are giving away the Le Creuset Heritage Cast Iron Fry Pan with Wood Handle, which is a beautiful new product that you can buy at a special price over at Williams-Sonoma, you know, in case you don’t win it here! I love this pan and the wooden handle just makes me happy. The cooking surface also works beautifully.
