Have you met Ted Kennedy Watson?!

Since it tis the season for giving I have put together a month of giveaways for YOU as a 
thank you for following and reading the blog.  It's my small way to say "thank you" and to let you know how much I appreciate your continued interest and support, and how grateful I am to those who take the time to leave comments.  
It means so much to me to have you here.


If you don't already know the stylish and affable Ted Kennedy Watson, you need to meet him!
Ted is the proprietor of  two wonderful shops in beautiful Seattle- Watson Kennedy Fine Home and Watson Kennedy Fine Living.  (To honor his late father, the business name is his father's name backwards.) Ted is a master curator- handpicking every item in both his shops, and he believes that it's the simple things that make life grand.  From a wonderfully scented candle or soap, to a vintage cocktail shaker, or the perfect note card Ted brings them all to life in his shops (which are shrines to find the perfect gift- either for someone else or yourself;)   His skills creating display vignettes are both inviting and inspiring.  In fact, years before I met Ted through blogging I would make it a point to go to his shop in Pikes Place Market whenever we flew to Seattle from Dallas to antique shop.  It was a must-stop for me, even if the shop was closed I would peek in all the windows to get inspiration for display vignettes for my antiques business.  I'm sure Ted cursed the person leaving all those nose prints on his windows!
I adore this quote from the website,  "The shops and this web site are really an extension of my homes and how I feel the good life can be lived.  Design, gift giving, manners, style- all have great importance to me.  We live in such a rushed world!  I want to inspire people to light a candle, set a stunning dinner table, or hand write a note:  time will slow down and we become more aware of our surroundings.  The shops are a reflection of that quality and my life, my travels, and the things I love."
Ted is also a fellow blogger pinning the blog Ted Kennedy Watson -which is a little bit Martha (think decorating tips) and a little bit Ina (think elegant, yet simple, recipes) all rolled into lots of inspiration and beautiful images.   You've probably seen Ted before;  his home or his shops have been featured in House Beautiful, In Style, Allure, Country Living, Lucky and Domino magazines.  His Seattle home was featured in Homes Across America (that was the best show ever, in my opinion) and his Vashon Island cottage on Small Space, Big Style, both on HGTV.
  



Ted is also a the author of 
Style & Simplicity
 An A to Z Guide to Living a More Beautiful Life
which will be published May 2014. 
The iconic Barbara Barry wrote the foreword to the book.



Ted has graciously offered to giveaway to one of my reader his upcoming book Style and Simplicity (you will be mailed a signed cover now and once the book is out in May it will be sent to you) along with a
 French Le Jacquard Francais dish towel, 
and a fig Diptyque candle- which Ted says is his favorite!

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment! 
Once again, if you are commenting as anonymous please remember to include your email address, and if you are entering with a google account, please make sure there is an email associated with the account.  The giveaway will run for 3 days and will close on Wednesday, December 18th at 6 p.m. EST.  
Ted kindly said to open the giveaway to everyone worldwide!  
The winner will be contacted via email.

  26. Ted's two shops are my favourite places to browse (& buy) when I visit Seattle. Not only are the shops filled with beautifully displayed, wonderful things, Ted is as delightful in person as he is on his charming blog. Unfortunately, family challenges have kept me from visiting Seattle for a number of years ....hopefully that will change in 2014. In the meantime, I'm really looking forward to the release of Ted's first book as I'm sure it will be fabulous.

    Joan...thanks so much for this opportunity. I love your blog and read it regularly. Wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas and all the best in 2014. Barb (bdownman@telus.net)

  140. Well first, you are extremely generous in doing giveaways for your readers since your blog alone is such a gift to all of us! Secondly, this looks like an amazing book! I would love to have it along with the towel and candle. A perfect gift collection for anyone who loves his style.

  156. Joan!! I can't believe I didn't know of him before this! His philosophies are everything I try to embrace in everything I do. I am so excited about this introduction. The fact that you would fly from Dallas to Seattle to antique just makes my heart sing -- now that's living. ;-) I'm so glad you are enjoying your giveaway month. I am truly inspired. You are doing a REALLY nice thing, especially at this time of year when we all can be so weary and in need of an indulgent contest. Thanks so much for hosting this.

  169. This is a lovely blog you have here. I found it just recently and look forward to every post because your home is so beautifully done, inside and out. Would love to see your Christmas decorations. We travel to the Northeast every summer for a month...mostly in the Finger Lakes area of New York, which is a wonderful place to be to get out of North Texas summers. Love the architecture of New England. Merry Christmas!
