If you won the latest give-away…

–a $100 gift card–

 to shop in

by linen &  lavender

What do you think you might select?

Maybe a Beta-Plus book with hundreds 
of ideas for creating your dream kitchen?
Compendium: KITCHENS
You could get that hefty book and still have enough left to get these charming glass jars.  I was wishing for more of these the other day to store my freshly-made pesto.
Italian Recycled Glass Jars

Hmm.  Or you could get several CD’s with that amount 
or download one hundred of your favorite songs!
Comme Si De Rien N’Etait
There’s a panini press by All-Clad I’ve admired.  
All-Clad Panini Pan with Press

Or, -it’s a little off the beaten path- 
but I’ve even included a few gourmet food items in the emporium.  

Oh, I know!  Here’s a treat you can splurge on…Hazelnut Graham Crackers (organic. –no less.)  
Organic Hazelnut Graham Crackers

I’ve tried them with a lemon dessert cheese…H e a v e n l y!
A sparkling wine and you’re all set for a summer evening with friends.

White Stilton with Lemon Peel

Of course, books are always a treat as far as I’m concerned.  There’s a bevy of home and garden books in the emporium, but also a few books of poetry, philosophy, fiction…or how about a beautiful cookbook like this one?…

Country Cooking of France

You’d even have enough for a 1 year subscription 
to the French edition of ELLE Decoration:
Elle Decoration – French Edition
Or you know what?…  
How about a book that will help you plan 
your next trip to Europe…
Maybe a trip to the Amalfi Coast this year?  
Great Escapes Italy
And if you are like me and would only want to be seen on Italy’s shores looking toned and swimsuit-ready, you might want to throw in something like this…
Flow Yoga by Shiva Rea

Hmm.  So many things.  It’s hard for me to choose.  I certainly wish the $100 gift card recipient the best of luck in making their selection(s).    It’s not going to be easy!

Oh, you know what?  
I just remembered.  

I haven’t even notified the winner yet!  

I guess I’ll do that now.  

(Drum roll please)
