neighbourhood swings by lovelydesign

A big thank-you to everyone who entered my giveaway for Julie Morstad's lovely new book "The Swing". I greatly appreciate all of you for taking the time to send your thoughtful words and messages!

And the winners, chosen by random selection are:

1. daisy said...
Beautiful book and a lovely post. Makes me want to swing.

2. Erin M. said...
Those are beautiful photos of her and her swing. Sounds like a fun neighborhood. There was awhile when my son (albeit much younger) wanted to hug each tree he passed on our walks. It wasn't that easy to get home from the park with any speed.

3. Norma said...
Oh wow. Our little town doesn't have any homemade swings to try out when we walk. What a great idea!!! Cute book too.

Congratulations to the three winners! If you haven't heard from me yet, please contact me.

We love the book "The Swing" so much, and I highly recommend it for any child (or admirer of lovely books and beautiful illustrations). If you'd like to pick up a copy for yourself, it is available now online Chapters.ca or Kidsbooks.ca - and it is currently available for pre-order through Amazon.com as well.

Have a wonderful week!

ahhh KidsBooks... I love that store! It's a good thing (I think) that I live thousands of kilometres away and only get to visit on occasion!

Erin M. said...

Yea, that's me! Thanks. We look forward to reading it.

I'm glad you are writing again. You are one of the only blogs I follow. Your writing is lovely, pictures are so simple, and I enjoy hearing about your world.

to Laura - oh i know. Kidsbooks is a marvelous (horrible!) place. Every so often we stoll by and I think "Don't need or want anything.... but we'll just pop in for a minute" and then we end up in there for over an hour and I end up taking some things home with me. It is such a fantastic shop, and even though it makes me a guilty shopper, I do like supporting them because they are really, really great. And they've made my job as a mama a little better :)

Erin M - Congratulations! I will be posting your book over the weekend. XOX

ambily - thank-you! I too love the bond that i've found with friends (and mamas) the world over, in this place.

AND Anonymous - Thank you! it means the world to me, your words. I've been thinking of blogging more as I have actually found it helps me to be a better mama - i think - that somehow it is meditative to me, well it seems to help me on this journey. XOX to you.

I think it is meditative, that's a good way of putting it!

I remember being little and having the time of my life swinging on my tire swing.
