Enduring Southern Homes – A Beautiful Book & Giveaway

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy First Day of Spring!!!

To welcome in the First Day of Spring this year,

I thought I would do something special for my readers.

You know how much I love beautiful interior design books. . . . and yes,

I often give away a copy of my favorites to one lucky reader.

Well, today, I am giving away a most beautiful book by an incredibly talented designer,

Eric Ross. His designs are like classic songs . . .

songs that are sung for generations and generations, standing the test of time.

So sit back and enjoy the stunning photos (Photography by Even Krehbiel)

and you will be mesmerized by the a sampling of Eric Ross’ gorgeous homes

that he has designed for his clients.
