- Method A: Leave comment on any blog post but this one (already posted or posted between now and end of giveaway)
- Method B: Follow this blog, or add me to your blogroll (previously added links count this time!) To be fair to those without blogger accounts, I'll only count one of these.
Do one or both, and then just leave me a comment in this post that tells me what you did. Thanks for playing! I'll leave this open from today until January 31.
Just for kicks, a peek at some of the non-book items I keep displayed on this shelf:
Display shelves--emphasis on eighteenth century miscellany. The handpainted box has to share a shelf with my CS Lewis and my cookbooks.
Closer look at the handpainted box--this was my favorite wedding gift, which a friend did for us. The painted versions of my husband and I actually look quite a bit like us!
Finally, the powder horn my father, an amazing scrimshander, made for my husband. It's sharing the shelf with a reproduction pistol, also a wedding gift (what the giver intended by that, I'm not quite sure...). The top is a common Revolutionary War era image of a hand holding thirteen arrows, for thirteen colonies united in rebellion. The text is lines from the Declaration "That all men are created equal." The bottom photo shows a "Peaceable Kingdom" scene, in which animals coexist with one another on a pastoral background (in this case, Mount Vernon and a seascape with ships), based on the scripture in Isaiah (lion shall lay with the calf, etc).
Thanks for playing, and I hope to share these books with two of you!
