Sharing on Sunday Give Away #3...Martha, Martha, Martha

This is give away #3 in Sharing on Sunday. As I said in last weeks post...

"Sundays are my day to say thank you to everyone who stops by, leaves a comment, sends me a personal email, forgives me when I don't email back right away or when I'm still trying to catch up, shares a thought, shares a picture, or just peeks in while blogging on the fly. No matter when or how you visit...I'm just happy you came by."

This weeks little giftie is Martha Stewart's book on organizing. I just found this yesterday at a consignment shop for $1.00. I know...double sacrilege...first Martha in a consignment shop and second, only for a dollar. I just had to pick this up. I already have this book (from another consignment find). My is all swollen and wrinkled from the great basement flood we had last fall, but it's still great and I can read it.

So, here is the book up for grabs this week. It looks brand new. The spine and pages don't even have any wrinkles in them. The only thing is a little dog ear fold in the cover on the bottom right. See it down there in the picture? No biggie, because the book is beautiful.




Here are some pictures of the pages. The last one is the copy right date. It's from 2001, but the organizing ideas are timeless.
























All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll be back next Sunday night with the winner and then again show off the next week's give away prize.

  9. I love Martha. I found one of her first ones at the thrift store, I remember seeing it in a store when it first came out and I drooled over it. She has wonderful ideas that can be such a springboard for inspiration.

  31. What a fabulous book, and what a great idea to give something away every week. I love your tool-time Tuesday. It reminds me of a show Iused to watch on DIY Network (I can't recall the name now, because it was years ago, but there was someone who always could transform the mundane into something useful and beautiful).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I found you through Kathie from Inspired by Antique quilts. Really enjoyed my visit here. I will be back!

  34. I could probably get organized if I had Martha's staff. However, I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen so maybe the book is the next best thing. Please count me in.
