When I started Pigtown*Design three years ago this week, I had recently moved back to Baltimore from Wales and was working for a friend’s family’s firm. His ancient father used to routinely throw pencils at people and call them jerks. Needless to say, it was not a happy and fulfilling environment in which to exercise my creative side. I thought a blog would be a good way to make sure that I spent time sharpening my writing skills and working on my photography skills. Thus, Pigtown*Design was born. As I begin my fourth year writing Pigtown*Design, I am stunned by all that this blog has brought into my life. I have met people whom I would never have known. I have had fun experiences with fellow bloggers. I have learned more than I ever would have imagined. I have seen some truly spectacular photography and read some stunning writing.
To say thanks, I am giving away a copy of “Decorating is Fun”. It is a 1941 edition, so not a first edition. It is in good shape, but does not have the original dust jacket, which is quite different from the one on the re-issue. (This is a mock-up of the original cover I did for a copy of this book that I sent to Marnie at MRR Design.)
If you leave a comment, I will put you into the drawing for a copy of the Decorating is Fun. Connor will draw a name on January 8th, the actual anniversary of my first post. He’s been pretty tuckered out from having his best friend stay here for four days, but I think that he’ll be sufficiently recovered by then to pick your name!
As always, thank you so much for reading Pigtown*Design.
