A Fabulous Give-away for a Fabulous Fresh Start!!

 We are in the mood to celebrate!

We have almost finished wrapping up the new 2011 issue of Container Gardening (watch for it on newsstands!) and are gearing up for many, many shoots for the follow-up to HOLIDAY: our new issue, SUMMER with Matthew Mead. We have so many wonderful things up our sleeve; we will slowly reveal some of them and others will remain well-kept secrets...for now!!


We hope you share in our sunny outlook and to help you do so, we are hosting the very first give-away of the New Year and our new venture! We have a beautiful new button to go along with our new blog design and we would love for you to have one. 

If you would be so kind as to place (or replace) our button on your blog** with the new Summer button (find it in the sidebar at left), and write a brief blurb letting readers know we are back for summer, we will enter you in our contest to win the following prizes:

  • A grand prize of a $100 gift card to West Elm, for ONE lucky winner (or to Homesense for Canadian readers)
  • A free copy of our new SUMMER issue, delivered to your mailbox by Mother's Day...and we are giving away a copy to FIVE lucky readers.
  ** If you don't have a blog, you can enter by tweeting and/or sharing on Facebook about the new issue. Just be sure to let us know if your entry involved a tweet, a button, a post, or a mention on Facebook. You get bonus points/an additional entry if you do more than one!

 Because who doesn't love West Elm? I head there myself from time to time...!
Best, 
Matthew 

This contest is now closed!
