Holiday Inspiration & A Giveaway from Matthew Mead



It's hard to believe that last week we were decorating for Halloween and now the holiday season is on our minds. Our American friends will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month and Christmas decor has hit retail stores in full force. I've also just finished planning my annual cookie exchange, 
so you know it's soon ;)

I thought I would share some images that Matthew sent me from his gorgeous new holiday book "Christmas All Through the House" . It is full of inspiration for the upcoming holiday season. I love the simplicity of this kind of decor. Subtle and fresh with the pops of greenery.

Scroll to bottom to enter the GIVEAWAY!











There are loads of craft, decor, baking and gift ideas that you will enjoy creating. I refer back to these holiday books every year. You will too. I'll share some images later next week.

The issue is available to purchase now on Amazon, Indigo and I've seen it on several news stands. 

I'm thrilled to be able to offer a giveaway for two lucky readers to win their own copies of Matthew's book.

To enter to win please leave a comment below. 
For additional entries please share this post on Twitter and/or Facebook. 
Make sure you leave me an additional comment so I know you shared.

This GIVEAWAY is now closed. 

Giveaway open to residents of Canada and the U.S. 
The giveaway will close November 15th.

Good luck! 
Remember the more you share the more entries you get!
