~patina style~{a giveaway}

 I have had my nose buried in this book since it arrived in the mail a few days ago.
I have been taking in every page, every detail.
I have been very fortunate to get to know Brooke through our blogs, she has become a sweet, sweet friend and even wrote a little note to me in my book.
Her and her husband Steve are so incredibly talented, and their photos and work are amazing.
If you don't have the book yet, you are missing out. 
Here are a few pages from Patina Style.





Are you a fan of Velvet and Linen?
Would you like to win your own copy of Patina Style signed by Brooke and Steve?
If so, leave me a comment and I will pick a random winner on Friday!
Good luck!
xoxo
