A Spring Giveaway from Matthew Mead and Paper Parade Co.



 Spring! I thought it would never arrive!
 

"Desperation" was setting in as I watched people plan winter getaways to sunny destinations that weren't in the cards for us. But now, the snow is melting, the sun is shining, and I'm wearing wellies instead of snow boots. Yay!

Last week, when it was winter, lol, I ventured out to find my friend Matthew's newest magazine. I knew it would be full of inspiration and, of course it was ... it is! 

So I'm so thrilled to share some sneak peeks of it with you AND giveaway two copies of the magazine to two lucky readers!! 

I thought I would add a gift of pretty paper goodies to each magazine winner's prize! Perfect for spring gift wrapping and inspiration as well. So I'll also draw for two of those, one for each magazine winner!

You know I love Matthew's work but this was an extra special issue, because, as a friend, I knew how hard Matthew had worked to bring this to you, to make this happen. Upcycled Style is the Matthew Mead you remember from Country Home and his first published issues of Holiday with Matthew Mead. I love this issue and I'm thrilled to share it with you.

One of the things I look forward to most about Spring is the outdoor antique markets that start in April and May. I cannot wait! Hunting for vintage treasures and finding ways to breathe new life into them epitomizes Spring to me. Upcycled Style has loads of ideas and inspiration for your Spring and Summer vintage finds, plus lovely home tours, craft and entertaining ideas and more!



Love this brilliant idea of upcycling vintage pendant lights into a tiered stand!


A collection of vintage bottles.  I am obsessed with vintage glass. These look like they might have been dug up on the beach or found buried in someones backyard....

Good luck with the Giveaway!
