My first ever GIVE-AWAY!!

I have a couple of exciting announcements to do.

Firstly. As of today I have 100 lovely followers! Whohoo!!
I actually don't like calling these/you people 'followers'.
I prefer 'friends' or even 'blog family' in some instances.

It is a privilege and pleasure blogging for/with you my lovelies
and I am as you know extremely grateful for your loyalty
and frienship! Without you this would be no fun at all!

The second is that I am doing my first ever 'give-away'!
I am so excited to let you all know that a great Sydney based
lighting store called 'Buyster' has kindly agreed to let me give
one of you lovely people a beautiful 'Rovan Ball' table lamp!

It is a great lamp with gorgeous finishes and I would love to
have if for myself - in fact I might just get a couple for my house.

I can see it on a cute bedside table teamed with some gorgeous
framed photos, or on a dresser next to a stunning bouquet of flowers
and a stack of books. Classic romantic elegance with an edge. 

The options are endless and I love the contrast of the dark wood
base with the white silk screen. Immediately when I saw it I was
taken to the streets of Paris and in particular the street lights.

Well, I can keep on dreaming...
The lamp is not for me, it is for you my lovelies. x

To have a chance to win the 'Rovan Ball Lamp' you need to;

Leave a comment letting me know you are a 'follower'
 (read: 'friend' x) of 'Space For Inspiration'.
If you aren't already, please join before you post your comment.
If you are also a subscriber, leave a second comment.
This will double your chances to win this great give-away!

To increase your chances even further, please post about this
give-away on your own blogs. Make sure you link your post
back to me and leave yet another comment with your post link.

Finally, to be able to have even greater chance to win.
Add my URL to your blog roll and post a 4th comment.

This offer is open to all friends and readers in Australia and 
will close at midnight on Thursday the 29th April, Sydney time.

I will choose a name at random and announce
the lucky winner shortly after.

Good luck everyone!

x Charlotta

HI Charlotta
Firstly congratulations on 100 blog friends!! I know I am a fairly new follower but hooked already... One thing I love about your blog is the diversity... something for everyone.. or every mood... Secondly... what a fabulous giveaway... and this is one lovely lamp.. I love it even more now you have compared it to the gorgeous streets lamps of Paris.... like having one's own private Metro lamp.... actually it has a very art deco feel for me.. fantastic.... Here's to your next hundred.. xx Julie

mnemonique said...

answering to your question - apple pie in Polish is "szarlotka" which you pronounce [sharlotka] :)
And referring to your post - street lights can make the whole town, they are part of so called "city furniture", and they are as important as the rest of "furniture" like bins, benches, advertisements. You found great ones!!!

Anne said...

What a beautiful giveaway! I adore that lamp. It's too bad I don't live in Australia! Congrats on your growing readership! Your blog is one of my favorites and you deserve recognition. Have a wonderful weekend1

Carole said...

Hello lovely friends!

How I wish I could open this give-away to the greater world as well. You all deserve a big reward for being such wonderful friends - the gift to me is having you!

Yaiii so cool, yes I am part of you blog family ^_^

Vicki said...

I have followed anonymously for sometime and now have just taken the public route. Love the lamp and your blog!


Way cool, Charlotta. Glad your limiting to Australia. My giveaway had to be sent to London, and the shipping was almost $50 for a necklace & earrings. Who knew?
Love you.

Charlotta Ward said...

Hi sweeties,

I am sorry this one is only for my local sisters.
There will be other give-aways in the future - just for you.

xx Charlotta

Greet said...

Hi Charlotta,
I wish all your bloggerfriends in Australia good luck! It is a very beautiful give away!!!

My husband sent me a link to your blog after he saw the "American Colonial meets Scandinavian antiques" post and the charming Bichon & Poodle image from Martha's archives. Our two favorite breeds! Not to mention we fell in love with your style immediately. So, of course I had to become a follower... I mean friend! :)
Sadly, Indiana is far far away from Australia so I can't be in your wonderful giveaway! Congrats on 100 followers! That is great! I'm also going to add you in my blog roll so my friends can see your cool blog! :)

Have a great day!
-Rachel from A Cupcake for Moose
