Oooh! This books looks wonderful! I live in a really tiny, 1 bedroom apartment and would love to take a look at this book. Thanks for sharing and the chance to win!


I love that woodstove! I grew up with a woodstove for our primary heat, so I totally understand missing the stove but not the wood hauling :) thank you for offering a copy of the book!


Love the bookshelves and the wee window seat. It really looks like a charming book and I thought we were catching glimpses of your home. =D

Your meal sounds delightful. A bit of butter adds some flavor to nearly everything. We had cheesy corn chowder for supper tonight. It's cold out there and it sure went a long way toward warming us up.

we have a wood stove which we like.
thanks for the tip about the butter in the beans

Oh! What a wonderful book! My house has lots of rooms, but they are all a bit on the small side, so I am sure I would find lots of useful ideas in it. I love the thought of a wood stove, but can't imagine what it would be like to manage one. I've never lived anyplace cold enough where wood stoves are common, so have never even seen one in person!

What a beautiful and useful book! I do not have what I would consider a small house, but it doesn't have ANY closets at all, not one, so I'm always on the lookout for creative ways to store things. Preferably attractive ways, shoving things into a plastic tub is not my idea of pretty. :)

Our farmhouse has cozy spaces too.. I'd love to see that book!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)


I love the shelves and window seat with the pillows! It looks like a great book!


Oh yes, yes, please throw my name in the pot for the book. I love those bookcases in the first photo. I have so many books and that looks like something I could do to solve a storage problem. I always look forward to your updates. Butter makes everything better in my opinion.

I'll throw my name in, that looks like a wonderful book!


Oh! That looks like a pretty book! We're a family of four living in a 2 bedroom home and can use some inspiration. Thanks for being so generous!


The book looks delightful and I've been wanting it since I saw it not too long ago.



Small spaces are cozy. Thank you for the chance to win!
