Oh wow, what a great opportunity! I'd so LOVE to win a spot in this class. We have an older home. I really love it and have a number of antiques but I'm never really sure how to best place them to create the vintage look I'd love in my home.
Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Katy Noelle said...

Well, I'm already one lucky duck because I won a space from Sharon Santoni's giveaway! =] (and, BOY! Did THAT make my day/week/month! ;))

I pick lovely colors, I cobble together what I can with furniture but getting the rooms to flow is tricky for me, my walls are awkward and I have a hard time with the small shtuff! I love the English jumble but crave simplicity - I'm caught between the two.

I really resonated with the thoughts and experience shared in the video. And it's so beautifully made, too, btw! =] (sniff, sniff... I think that I'm resonating with it because I'm still fighting the pricks in my eyes!!! =P =])

I want to ask you a question but, I can't imagine you'll have time to answer it with the million comments you get and a trip to France on top of it all!!! Have you ever read 'Gift From the Sea' by Anne Morrow Lindbergh?

Anyway, as always, it's always a refreshment and pleasure to visit you, Tracey!

Joanne said...

I have never thought about taking a class to beautify my home, but I know I could sure use some help. I love using my flea market and antique finds in my decor, but I'm not always sure how to place things. We have a very open floor plan in our 11 year old home, so I'm always challenged in finding a good way to set things up to work best for my family.
Thanks for this chance!

Kris Vogelsang said...

What an opportunity! My biggest struggle is what color to paint my walls! I've been through many shades and nothing seems quite right. The problem? My trim is in its original fir wood state. It has a slightly orange cast to it (over 50 years old) and I don't want to paint it. I would LOVE suggestions as to what would work with it. Thanks!!!

PURA VIDA said...

Tracey your photos this post are exquisite

Samantha2818 said...

I would LOVE to win a place on this course. We've lived in our house since it was built 15 years ago and are now at the stage where every room needs a facelift. I'm most proud of how the rooms all flow from one to another but my biggest decorating problem is that I burn out quickly. As soon as a room is almost complete I lose heart cos I can't decide or can't find the things needed to finish the room off. I also get distracted by the next project and tend to move on to that without ever finishing the one I was working on. I need help with going that extra mile and completing one project or room before moving on with the next!
Thanks for the opportunity to win a place - if I do win one you'll be helping someone in dire need!!

I would love to win this generous tutorial gift! My husband is a pastor and all of our married life we have lived in parsonages owned by the churches we minister in. I love all of my sweet antique treasures and my favorite treasure is a large oval photograph of my gramma and her two sisters with a gorgeous gold detailed frame and oval rounded glass. It is about 100 years old.

awal.ny said...

This is an awesome giveaway. I think all of you have amazing homes and so much to learn from.

CK said...

Thank you for this give-away. What I like about our home is that we each have our own rooms to call our little sanctuaries. What I struggle with is finishing the rooms. Inspiration abounds and would love to make some come to fruition.

PEONY AND SAGE said...

Should our fabric range be of interest to the talented ladies, please do get in touch we would love to have a stronger presence in the US, as UK & Europe.

Dagmar said...

We just reprinted our home, and I have been busy painting some darker furniture in warmer lighter shades...I feel that it is a gift to be able to swap things about and refresh ourselves and our home❤..it would a wonderful course to be part of!

Pam said...

Enjoy your days in France! Thanks for the opportunity to join in such an amazing class! Blessings~

primjillie said...

Would so love to win a space in this course. I've recently gone through a divorce and had to downsize to an apartment. I love the pale, simple look and trying to get it in an apartment where I can't change anything is a challenge. I would also love to see the gorgeous photos of your homes! Thanks so much for a chance.

What a wonderful giveaway...I'd love to win! My favorite thing about our home is, the small cozy feeling...on the other hand the coziness leads to lack of storage!

Susan Thomas said...

I cannot wait for this class to start!! Extra 'Yippee' if I could win a spot! I love my little cottage so much, but having a limited budget is my biggest struggle in bringing it out of the 1960's and into a light airy modern cottage by the sea.....

Geli said...

It would be great to win a spot! I would be glad to get 10 percent of the beautiful dreamy look of your style into my house! I love your blog, it´s so french! Best wishes, Geli

Kerri said...

I have really been wanting to take this e-course! I read all of your blogs and love each of your different styles! Financially, I just can't afford right now since a few unexpected house and car troubles have come up so to win a spot would be amazing!
I have trouble with trying to repurpose items, which is something I see alot on blogs, but can't seem to do myself!

~LisaLou~ said...

Thanks for doing a giveaway for the course. I love the presence of my family in our house!

Susan said...

Oh Tracey, I would love to win this course! You gals are all so talented and I know it will be filled to the brim with inspiration.
I love my living room (especially the pale blue/gray wall color), but I do struggle with its' fireplace front as well as how to style my dining room.
Thanks so much for this opportunity and have a great time in France!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Thank you so very much for the opportunity. We recently moved into a new to us home and my biggest challenge is how to transform builders grade into something more that says "We live here."

Fingers crossed.

Hi Tracey,

Oh my! Beautiful pictures of beautiful objects and an awesome giveaway....I've died and gone to heaven! We are selling our house to my daughter and her husband, so have great new ideas to make the house her own style. Now my husband and I will be living in really, really small quarters and need help with a timeless, open space look that will work for small spaces!

debra said...

Bungalow living is the best! They're compact and efficient. The only issue I have is that my living room is long and narrow windows or doors on all but one wall. and you have to walk through it to get to the stairs.

So do I do two seating groupings? Other than than it still has it's original kitchen cabinets and all its unpainted moldings and beadboard.
Thanks for the opportunity. Would love to participate.
Pinned too!

Kiwifruit-Shiree said...

how wonderful, and full of inspirational ideas I am sure. I juts love the window frames in the very first picture, just gorgeous!!

My favorite space is in my garden. What I am struggling with is my bedroom... oh to have one looking like the ones you posted!!! Another struggle is my guest room, the one for the grandkids!!!

stellarstamper said...

I absolutely love your blog. It is so incredibly inspiring! Thank you for an opportunity to win! I think my biggest challenge over the years has been to define my decorating style. It has evolved and changed over the years and I feel that I am just now coming into what feels like me!

Vintage Girl said...

I would love to win this giveaway. My dilemma is my decorating style - it is all over the place - I love French Provincial, Shabby Chic, Hollywood Old Style Glamour and Industrial Chic, British Empire- If I put that all together in my house it will look a mess.

Sue said...

What a nice opportunity. What I love about my home is that it is (finally!) my "happy home" - not worried about perfection, matchy-matchy and just right. My greatest challenge is liking so many things, and fitting them in to the house!

Pa Ul said...

Your post is great to read. I was wondering if you want a giveaway?

Ti Bo said...

Love this blog. It is so inspiring. The images spark creativity inside of me. I would love to win a spot in your class and get some tips on some challenging areas of our 100 yr old home. I love to decorate with antiques and treasured finds as well as family mementos. I've recently developed a love through blogland of the French look, so would love to learn more about how to transition that into my decorating. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

Nancy said...

Tracey, I would just Love to win this fantastic Opportunity!! I struggle with decorating the Main Living areas, and always end up consulting someone, paying for it, and not using it as their ideas are so pricey. I love Crafting, re purposing etc. but when it comes to my home this class is help I would really appreciate!!

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Hi Tracey
Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a spot in the Creatively Made Home course!

One of the areas I want to improve in our home is our foyer. It has 20 foot ceilings and a juliet balcony that I know could have more WOW than it does right now :-)

We just bought a house and I love being able to decorate it! We are transitioning from college/first place to a family home with our two little ones. I love a random antique chair I found at a local shop. I struggle most with how to make my home look cohesive from one room to the next. I would love to win a chance to be a part of this class! Amy

I need this win LOL

my big problem is knowing what look to stick with I like so many like the white shabby chic, then I love the romantic white lace look and I love the old leather traditional look , I have all of these looks in different rooms in my house and have enough in the storage room to supply another house , I need to have a huge sale and start over, no I need an interior decorator come over

b.ellen said...

This would be lovely to join in on! Thank you for the opportunity!

Allyssa Stark said...

My favorite place in my home is my own bedroom - a piece of me, my style, and taste in this huge house with all my siblings and my parent's tastes. The hardest part about decorating would have to be clutter and clever ways to hide things and organize!

Robinanne said...

I LOVE my porch. It faces the east and the sunrises are awesome. My country yard is filled with hummingbirds much of the time. My struggle is designing my second bedroom as a studio and as a place for my 2 year old grandson to stay when he comes to visit. So far it is still all boxes!!! I'm hoping the course will help me design it to be awesome and effective!!

Sarah Beth said...

This would be such a big help to my old farm house!!! I would love to win!

primitivespirit said...

i would love to get a free spot in this class, it sounds wonderful! what i love the most in my home is the quality of light, and so the windows! what i struggle with the most is keeping up on cleaning it and keeping all things organized!

Sharon said...

I would LOVE to win a spot in this class! What I love most about my home besides living in the country is that it is old and solidly built. It has beautiful trim around every window with bullseye..but its hard to decide on window treatments without having to cover them up. I struggle with keeping it clean and trying to organize.

gigiandoliver said...

KaReN EiLeeN said...

I love that when I look around my home, many items have a memory. I love the fact that most of the treasures are antique or vintage and once belonged to another time, another home. I imagine the stories. I wish there was a way that I could tell those, now gone for many years, that their story goes on and has a place of honor and joy in my home.

tau said...

I'd love the opportunity to join all the fabulous women in this class. My greatest challenge in my home is a fresh start. I recently went through a divorce and my income is quite limited right now. The house is brand new and the furniture is a mish-mash of the property division. I hope to get a spot in the class in order to create a focus and plan for my new home. :) Thanks for the opportunity!

Sindy Warkenthien said...

I would love to win a spot in the course! Oh, do I need it!

My favorite thing about my home (apartment) is its "coziness". What I most struggle with when decorating my home is finding the furniture or decor I want.

Tina said...

I would SO SO SO love to win, to be part of this! I'm getting ready to move and as such I feel like there is a whole blank slate before me!!!

Mentioned French Larkspur is giving away an e-course, Creatively Made Home on my business Facebook page.

Botanic Bleu said...

Enjoy your blog even if I don't win a spot in the Creatively Made Home course.
My house is 25 years old, and the thing I love most about it is that it is a post and beam house built much like a barn with lots of wood. I also love that my husband and I did a lot of the work ourselves.

Botanic Bleu said...

Just "pinned" the Creatively Made Home registration button to my French Country Inspiration board on Pinterest.

Botanic Bleu said...

French Larkspur is already on my blog's list of blogs that I like. I updated my Saturday, Sept. 8 post to include information about the French Larkspur e-course, Creatively Made Home.

Thanks for giving me a chance to mention French Larkspur on Pinterest, Blogger, and Facebook. I found French Larkspur from another blogger. Maybe someone else will find my blog through French Larkspur.

Mary Lou Unangst said...

Your photos are wonderful! I pinned some to my Pinterest Board, including the class link.

Your idea of sn online class is really innovative.

kshannoka said...

Tracey,
I'd love to net a spot in your course. I live in an old bungalow and try to remain true to the style and time the house was built. It has been fun, but I struggle with the small size and the lack of wall space due to architectural elements and windows.
I am inspired by the beautiful photographs in your blog.

Miss Frangipani said...

My home is not my own. It is the house where my husband grew up. It is where his mother spent over forty years of her married life (and continues to live here - it is her house, after all). In India, it is common for adult children to live with their parents and we have a historical house that needs looking after. What's not easy - bringing a little of my own self into a house that already has deep roots and a character of its own. How do I blend in, or shake things up a bit without jeopardising relationships (yes, someday it feels like that!).

This would be just the inspiration I need as I move into my tiny little new house! You are all so inspiring! Jamie V in MT

A Cozy Cottage in the City said...

Hi Tracey,

Oh count me in...ever since we moved here, there are still 3 bedrooms that need help! I just haven't had time to do much with classes (I'm going back to school for a change in degree), my boys and moving to an older home...it's been crazy!

Anyway, wishing you a wonderful new week!


Hugs,
Jessie

The Mom said...

I love my 990 square foot back porch; a addition I worked three extra years from my intended point of retirement to afford! It is perfect this time of year in TN. My biggest decorating dilemma is editing. I have stuff everywhere...too many antiques, knick knacks, etc. I confess to being a clutter bug! I do have some beautiful things, but need a strong eye to help me scale back on the lovelies!

wrensnest said...

Tracey,
I would love to win this class! I just feel stuck in a decorating rut and would love to be inspired by you and the other 4 women.
Thanks so much for this opportunity!

Thank you!

Anonymous said...

Hi Tracey,
What an opportunity! I have all vintage furniture, with the exception of living room seating, but all of it is brown, nothing is painted the pretty new colors. My husband would die if I took a paintbrush to any of the antiques.
Wall paint colors and how much "stuff" to display on a mantle is probably my biggest challenge.Thanks, Laura Benthien

Just White said...

Hi Tracey!

I would be over the moon if I win this oportunit of been part of sunch an amazing course with lovely and creative women like you!
I love my home because belongs to our family and is a keepsake of our memories!
Is a lovely small stone french house...i have many vintage stuff that we bought in the markets around. All our furniture is second hand but I struggle to make the place look uncluttered! It is hard because as an old house we have weird windows and door position and is hard to make it all flow!

Hope this is my lucky time to win!

Thank you for the oportunity!

Love,

Eliana

Boy, I'd love to win this. We have a 1978 suburban ranch that I've been trying to add a bit of character to, but I like so many different things that I'm having trouble pulling it all together. Help!

I enjoy all the decorating possibilities that my home brings...but what keeps me from it is time. Perhaps if I am lucky enough to win a spot in your classes, I will be forced to make time for something truly creative! Thanks for your inspiration.

Oh I would LOVE to be a part of this! I live in a very old home, 1610 in fact, and the things that make it wonderful.... massive fireplace, expansive space, make it challenging. It's very difficult, for example, to dress a mantle that's 8 feet in the air!

Please pick me. I have recently moved into a 200 year old house in Brittany, France. The builders have nearly finished the refurb. I have painted all the walls white and am planning on starting the decorating from the top floor down. Now I have hit the tizzy bit. I scour the web, magazines, etc and see loads of things I love but then go round in circles unable to commit to paint colours, tile colours, tile shapes - basically anything! I need help to see the wood from the trees! So I repeat - please pick me.

At age 44, after being married 25 years, I found myself on my own with an 8 year old son. At age 46, having picked up the pieces, I surprised everyone and bought my very own house. It hadn't been lived in for many years, was over 100 years old and was badly in need of love. Slowly, I've been gathering bits and pieces from garage sales, op shops, even from the side of the road, and my home is starting to smile. I could use some help in how to best use these pieces to create the home I want.

I just discovered your gorgeous blog through My French Country Home. Wow - what a beautiful site!!

I would love to take the class - I struggle with making my home feel cozy because my husband likes everything clutter free. Also, I struggle with colors so I end up doing everything neutral.

I can't wait to check out the rest of your site...Have a great weekend!

Oh, my! If I could only win one thing from a blog giveaway, ever, this would be it.

What do I love about my house? The fact that it's finally an "older" home at 55 years. I love the natural light, the floors and the private back yard.

The biggest decorating problem? The long, narrow, thoroughfare rooms.

What I love about my home is its potential...despite having lived here for 7 years (and my husband for 15 years)it is still waiting to be finished - biggest decorating problem? The fundamental problems like bathrooms that need renovating, walls that need plastering, shelves to be put up I yearn for a finished, decorated house!

Thank you for this opportunity, I would be thrilled to win! The thing I love most about my home at the moment is the exterior, I drive up and think, WOW! that is my home! I am not saying it is amazing but it is to me! A simple weatherboard with a verandah and my husband has done a great job with the garden! I would love help with my living room, I really want it to be special to me with a french influence as I love the french way of decorating, simple but stylish, thank you for the opportunity!!

I buy bits and pieces at flea markets that I fall in love with and then when I get them home just don't know what to do with them.
I really have trouble picking the wall colours and seem to stick with the same old safe colours...I need help :-)
