  1. I am a new follower and loving checking in daily with you. I know I won't qualify for the giveaway as I am from the UK and shipping costs would make it prohibitive, but I wish you well with your first giveaway. It is extremely generous and I cannot imagine why anyone would not want to own one of these gorgeous pieces.
    Very generous indeed! :-)
    Happy Halloween and have a great week.

  4. I'm now following both of your sites, not just to enter to win, because I think you're fabulous as well. :) Why would I like to win said shelf? Because it has such character and my staid living room could use a little style. :)

  18. I am a follower. Didn't know about the other blog! How did I not know that?? Follower there too!
    I LOVE this piece, Renee. Would give me the black I need in my room. Not only that, I need some Chinoiserie in my living room! Perfect.
    Great giveaway! Will post it on Twitter.

  19. I am now a follower of both your blogs! I cannot believe you actually have a pair of these! This is the 3rd time I have seen a pair of these shelves: 1st time I saw a pair at Bombay Company years ago but they were already sold; then I saw a pair of them used as spice racks(!) in Kirstie Allie's kitchen before Nate Berkus re-did it. I have always thought they were FABULOUS and have wanted a pair for my den. I have such a weakness for all things Chinoiserie and I think these are an exquisite representation. I would have great fun styling them! Have my fingers crossed!!!!...knowing that if I win one, I will def buy the other!!! Thank you for hosting such an incredible giveaway!! Mercy me!

  20. you are so very interesting. I learn alot from reading your blog...the very best of luck in your new venture.

  21. Very nice - it would look great in so many rooms.

  22. notting

    thank you
    i hope all is well with you!

  23. I love this piece! It would be an elegant addition to my home office. I have been reading your blog for almost a year. I juts never got around to becoming an official follower until now.

  24. Ok, consider yourself twice followed by me.
    I love this piece and I've been looking for something to add a touch of chinoiserie to my bedroom and display a few things.

  25. Renee, this is beautiful!!! I'm off to check out The Trade! ;)

  26. Oh blast!!!!! Why do I live so far away from one of my very favourite talented people?!!!!!!!
    The very least I could have done is stay away until your Very First Give-away was over and then I would not be going to bed dreaming about how I could fit it in here!!!! Love and hugs xxx Jules
    PS But just so you know you one of the first blogs I started following and wasn't that a blessing my dear, dear friend! xxx

  27. jule

  31. My dearest Renee - your blog is looking fabulous, your new blog is fabulous, and of course you are fabulous. I've missed much of what's been happening but I hope to get up to snuff here fast. This giveaway is wonderful. WHO doesn't adore a piece of Chinoiserie charm in their room? This wee shelf you could us in so many ways and in so many various rooms. Why would I love it? One frank answer - my flat looks like the bottom of a birdcage. Not one charming, adorable, classy item in it, except my dog & husband! Love you Renee Finberg!!

  32. Hi Renee! I'm already a fan (follower) of both of your blogs. I hope this doesn't disqualify me from entering your give-away! I incorporate Asian pieces into our decor since I inherited several pieces from my grandparents who lived there in the 20's. This elegant shelf would be perfect holding some of my smalls. Keeping my fingers crossed.....Cathie (

  33. deb,

    i am so glad you stopped by.
    you quite the mystery these days....


  34. What a fabulous Chinoiserie shelf! I would adore winning the one you are giving away - and would definitely want to purchase its mate. I am a follower of both your blog and 'The Trade' - and appreciate the chance to participate in your first giveaway.



Thanks for participating!!
