Summer Giveaway..


The barn sale went really well, and it was so nice meeting so many of you.  But I must confess, my heart has been broken these past few days.  
Having a pretty sunny day like this one..made it a little bit better.


The yard is coming alive.


And what better way to add a pinch of happiness to my life...
and possibly yours, than..


A copy of the new magazine by Matthew Mead - Summer.
I've been a fan of Matthew since I first saw his stories in Country Home Magazine.
He has been my idol of the styling world.


They are sending me a copy of the new magazine, which makes me smile.
I also have a copy for one of you! 
So, leave me a comment - any comment, and I'll do a random draw this Friday.
It's that easy..and don't you think it should be!?

I would love a copy! And, I live close by your farm so can pick it up if that helps :-) Sorry to hear you've had a bad week. On a happy note, I love the curry chutney I bought from you on the weekend - delicious with cheese...yum! :-)

This looks beautiful! I'm looking forward to a beautiful summer as well, although it seems to be a lot greener where you are (things in Calgary are still white & brown - sigh...)

Summer!!! Swimming, fresh fruit & Vegg, hikes, ice cream. Love it all. Count me in. Oh I also recently went to the Little White Teah House and it was amazing.

Jane said...

I would love a copy of that magazine, however I do live a long way away (australia) so it might be best if you send it to someone closer to you. I'm sorry you haven't had the best week. If all else fails, take a walk into the paddock, sit down on mother earth and feel her embrace you. It will make you smile. Jane x
ps. otherwise pop over to my blog and see the glistening ocean from my recent visit to the beach.

It's a hard thing to talk about so I've just let it be. I too have been enjoying your apple curry chutney from the sale.I hear the weather is going to heat up so something to look forward to. Can't wait to see Kevin's project. Is it a secret? Shhhhh...

A Serenade for Solitude said...

The sunshine always makes a difference! I'd love to get my hands on that!

I am sorry to hear that your heart has been broken...
I don't want to pry as to why.

I'll be sending positive thoughts and wishes your way.

Our BC weather has been positively beastly so the sun's appearance does have an uplifting effect.
When I feel blue I take a cup of tea and a stack of my Country Living mags and sit quietly and peruse them...for some reason they provide comfort...maybe Matthew Mead's new book will work some of that magic for you too!

I'd love this book by Matthew...I have seen Tricia's work too and absolutely adore her creative style.

Hugs,
Hostess

Elle said...

Please consider me for the draw.
I enjoy your blog and hope things are happier in your world now.

Diane said...

Since I live too far away to visit Missing Goat Farm, I would love to win something from this beautiful blog! That magazine looks like just what I need to get ready for summer.

If not I'd settle for buying some blueberry jam from you! How can I do that? Do you ship to California? :-)

Natasha said...

Love the photos and would love to win the magazine! Hope things are well.
