My First Giveaway: Keeping Good Company

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.  WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER TODAY, AUGUST 1st.

Welcome to Cozycakes Cottage’s 1st Giveaway! 

I’m a little too excited about this giveaway, but as I said in my Cherry Almond Crumb Cake post, I’ve been waiting to share something I simply adore with my dear reader-friends. 

So many of you have been incredibly supportive of my foray into the world of blogging.  And though I’ve only been at it since late last November, I’ve grown so fond of my petite spot in the blogosphere.  It’s definitely a comfortable place for me to spend a bit of my time each week.  And it’s a comfy spot in large part because of You

Friends have encouraged and supported me and strangers have become friends. 

So when I stumbled upon these sweet books last week, I grabbed extras so that I could gift some to those I love and share one with one of YOU! 

As I said yesterday, these books are gems in my book (get it?).  I love the watercolor illustrations, the homecooking, the stories, the tips on hosting guests, the focus on making a house a home.  These books by Roxie Kelley and Shelly Reeves Smith are nothing short of Cozy.  Cozy with a capital C.

Where have they been all my life?

In the spirit of the great company I keep in my day-to-day life and through this little blog, I’m giving away a copy of Keeping Good Company: A Season-by-Season Collection of Recipes, with Entertaining and Homemaking Ideas.”  

I’ve already enjoyed the cherry almond crumb cake and there are many more recipes I plan to try soon.  This delightful book is such a great fit with Cozycakes Cottage.  In fact, it’s what a Cozycakes book might look like!  I hope one of you will enjoy this book as much as I’m enjoying it. 

To enter for your chance to win your own copy of “Keeping Good Company” all you have to do is leave a comment answering one or both of the following questions:

  • What little thing/s do you do to make your house a home, a cozy place  for yourself/your family?  

OR 

  • What simple touches to your home or gestures do you do to make guests feel welcome and comfortable be it for tea and a chat or a weekend visit?

For additional entries you may do 1 or both of the following and come back here and leave a SEPARATE comment for EACH ONE so you have multiple entries:

  • Follow Cozycakes Cottage via email by entering your email address in the “Follow Cozycakes Cottage” box on the right hand menu (or fellow WordPress.com bloggers can just click “follow”).
  • Follow me (Danielle @ CozyCCottage) on Twitter by going here or clicking the Twitter button on the right menu bar.

Best of luck to you and thank you for visiting my cottage!

This giveaway ends Tuesday, July 31st and is open to residents of the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom.   A winner will be chosen by Random.org.  I was not compensated for this giveaway nor was I sponsored by the book’s authors, publishing company, or WordPress.  I just wanted to share the love with you! 🙂

Cherry Almond Crumb Cake & my first…

Last week I was perusing stores, looking for nothing in particular, but hoping to find a gem or two. You know, a little something that would be perfect for my home, my family, my kitchen.

My lucky little buns discovered these.

I grabbed one of each immediately.  They were a steal AND the artistry is right up my alley.  A little Susan Branch, a little Gooseberry Patch.  And homecookin’ cookbooks nonetheless.  Mine. Continue reading
