No Fear Sofa and A Freebie: Pottery Barn Gift Card



My house is a home.  

I know what you are thinking, “that is the line I use when a house is a disaster.”  Yup, sometimes it is!  Never perfect, always a work in progress,  always comfy and always full of love; my house is me.  (Hmm, I might need to work on the “always -- love” part a little more.)  Now more squishy and comfy than ever, with the arrival of the our new sofa and chairs.  Yes, I am aware that they are white (actually ivory washed linen).  I can hear all of my “persnickety” friends saying "what are you thinking, how are you going to keep them clean?”  Well, here is my really big news; I am not.  They are machine washable slipcovers and my wonderful washer and dryer will have to do the work.   Truthfully, I have wanted ivory linen for a long time and I am in a season of “not of living in fear.”  I declare "no fear" in any part of my life!   Just love.  I love these new additions and I love you. So, in honor of new furniture from Pottery Barn...
My first FREEBIE (I like that word) give away is a $50 gift card to Pottery Barn.  If you don't need anything at Pottery Barn, think of someone who might; it is the perfect wedding, anniversary or birthday gift!  
But wait, how shall we determine who gets it?
Let's keep it simple (like my new sofa and chairs); yes simple!  Just post a comment below or newly subscribe to my blog by Thursday, September 1, 2011, at 12PM. You can enter everyday by posting a comment daily.  You don't have to be witty or clever, a simple "hi or GIMME" will work!  Anyone can win, so please tell you friends!  
I will announce the winner on or before Tuesday (anticipating my Labor Day lag time).
Go ahead, it is simple!
Peace, Love and Simply No Fear....A
