Inspired You, by MMS

Hey friends! Are you having a lovely week?

The weather here in Louisiana has been very spring-like…making me long for springtime.

First off, I want to say THANKS so much for all of your sweet comments on my last post about 2012…I don’t know about you, but I’m expecting an explosion of blessings in 2013!

I have a question for you… Have you seen this book yet?

inspired you 3

Oh my! What a beautiful “inspirational” book this is!  It’s called INSPRIRED YOU, written by Marian Parsons (aka Miss Mustard Seed herself).  I’m sure you know her blog and you’ve probably seen her new line of milk paint…

inspired you 1

But do you know her whole story? Well, INSPIRED YOU is written as if you are sitting and having a conversation with Miss Mustard Seed.  She speaks to the heart of people like you and me…and encourages us to “let God breathe new life into your  heart and home”.

inspired you 4 

So, whether you are just beginning your decorating journey, or perhaps you’ve found yourself in a decorating “slump”…this is the book for you! I read it in two nights…and felt so inspired I wanted to paint a dresser, sew a pillow, and set a fancy table :)

inspired you 5

(: (Jovi likes the book, too) :)

I’d LOVE to give away a copy of INSPIRED YOU to one of my sweet readers :)

Just leave a comment here on this post for one entry.

For a second chance, LIKE my Facebook page here.

This Giveaway will end Sunday, January 27th at midnight.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Blessings,

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to know
so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in
it or something. I believe that you just can do with some % to

force the message house a little bit, but other than that,

that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I

will definitely be back.
