Country Living Feature and Giveaway

The July-August “New Classics” issue of Country Living magazine shares a full-page feature of my little nautical lifesaver napkin rings, (similar to the ones I blogged about here.) You know, you gotta be cool when you get a wonderful feature like that, I mean, you don’t just run right out to the nearest newsstand and buy a copy. You run right out and buy multiple copies! (Of course, CL generously sends me copies, I simply couldn’t wait.)

So, because I’ll have extra copies and because I LOVE Country Living magazine and always have, I’m giving away the July-August issue to two lucky winners, which by the way, is so deliciously farmhouse red, white & blue that I can hardly stand it. I’m also going to treat the winners to a one-year gift subscription of Country Living magazine! (You already have a subscription? Enter anyway and I’ll send it to your best friend, mom, sister or anyone you choose. US residents only, please.)

TO ENTER: Please visit Country, then come back to this post and leave a nice comment about one wonderful thing you discovered there. Entry to this giveaway closes at 11:59pm Sunday, June 26, 2011. Winners will be randomly chosen, notified and posted here soon after.

GIVEAWAY WINNERS: #83 Tamara and #131 Richard. Congratulations you two, and thanks to all who entered!

My favorite discovery of this issue (besides, obviously page 53,) is Heather Bullard’s Ultimate Chicken Coop! Incredible.

  29. #30 - Brenda says:

    Okay, so I am not a new crafter but I am a new blogger so please forgive my excitement! I went to Country Living and poked around. I love the magazine, but have to catch it at the doctor’s office. I stumbled across Practically Free Projects. Are you kidding me?! First I latched on to the Découpaged Light and was so happy. I neeeed to make one. Then, the vases… I could not tell, are those books?? Wonderful blog, keep up the good work, and thanks for the chance to win!

  30. Congratulations on your napkin rings being featured! I really love the Artful Kitchen Cabinet in the 10 Practically Free Crafts section.

  38. #39 - Maddi S says:

    Thanks for sharing the site – it’s got so many great tips!

  39. #40 - Robyn Brown says:

    I love the retro swimsuits. I especially love them because they’re so flattering and feminine. It’s nice to see them making a comeback.

  40. #41 - Immi says:

    I found a cool and easy idea for a paintbrush vase. Now if I just had enough old paintbrushes…

  41. #42 - ruthanne says:

    Loved the napkin rings idea when you first posted it – and to see it in Country Living is a treat! I’d love to win the issue, and to have a subscription would really be terrific. Thanks for the great ideas – just made a tape dispenser based on your tutorial of a cigar box and hacksaw blade (only used a old clementine box!) So many clever ideas you have!

  42. #43 - Pam Forgerson says:

    I so want to Knit the Royal Wedding! What a fun idea. I love Country Living- a subscription would be awesome!

  48. #49 - Shannon(amomsyear) says:

    Your napkin rings are amazing…I love anything nautical. (Is it the colors? The simple lines?) We live in a river community, so we have quite a few friends with boats. I think this would be a great gift for them. Thanks for the idea!

    I’m subscribing, not just because you have great ideas (which you do), but because you have three teenagers. I’m going to have four before I know it, and want to take notes on how you do it!

  49. #50 - Connie Fong says:

    I love the DIY craft projects – great ideas in there…I never knew.

  50. #51 - Heather Gorton says:

    You can make your own sidewalk chalk?


  51. #52 - Sally says:

    Way to go! Adorable idea. When I visited, I thought the fork tie backs were too cute and the whole make a craft room feature made me drool! Love what I discovered!

  52. #53 - Martha says:

    I really like the Crafts & DIY Projects. Love looking through the magazine. Such beautiful pictures.

  53. #54 - Arrica M says:

    Love this magazine. Such charm and inspiration. Thanks for the chance.

  54. #55 - Katie says:

  55. #56 - Jenny G. says:

    I really like the America’s best Antique shows guide. There’s a few I’ve not heard of before that I want to take a trip to visit.

  56. #57 - tina says:

    Hi Cathe! I loved reading this magazine when my grandmother used to send me the ones she was done reading. I most love to see the articles on decorating and crafts!.. Went to the website, and liked the napkin note cards! Please do count me in for this subscription giveaway! I’m crossing all my fingers and toes to win it! Thanks, and have a great weekend! ~tina

  57. #58 - Jacque Chinnery says:

    Congratulations on your feature article! Country Living has been one of my favorite magazines for years….and I have a lot of old issues to prove it!
    It is hard to choose one thing I liked best, but I would agree with you….the Ultimate Chicken Coop was just too much fun to resist. I have dreams of having chickens in my backyard some day, and I think this coop is just what I would choose to keep them safe!
    Love your napkin rings…they would be a perfect gift for my sister-in-law for their home on the lake.

  58. #59 - Debbie Roma says:

    I love those stacking vintage suitcases. I’ve wanted to do something like that and still haven’t found the perfect ones.

    Congrats! on appearing in the magazine. How cool is that?

  59. #60 - Dana Gustafson says:

    Yay! Cathe! I already loved Country Living magazine but LOVE them even more now that I know they’ve caught on to your creative brilliance! Way to go girl!

  60. #61 - Julia D. says:

    County Living magazine is always a treat! It is so wonderful that you are featured, again, in their wonderful magazine. Every page of every issue I have ever seen, is delicous eye candy to savor and explore. Congratulations! Would love the chance for an issue or subscription for sure. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  61. #62 - Jane Carney says:

    Well of coarse it is the cutest napkin rings in the world. So cool to see you in print. Proud of you Cathe!

  62. #63 - Lucy Schmidt says:

    Congratulations for getting published. Nice work, as always, and it’s easy to see why you were featured. I went right to the DIY section, but saw lots of things I need to go back and look at. I loved the Dress Up A Plain Mirror Idea (I’m an aunt to a 4 year old cowboy/fireman/princess), along with the Hankie Table Runner. I have hankies that my mother was given at a “Hankie Shower” before she got married in 1946. What a great way to use them.

  63. #64 - Ashley says:

    I had a friend living in London while the royal wedding was happening. I sent her the link to the Knit your own royal wedding party.
    It made us both laugh and was a great hit with her friends there! I love the combination of modern, vintage, new and used in CL magazine. One of my favorites!

  64. #65 - Willa says:

    My favorite always seems to be recipes. Don’t cook much but love the recipes!

    But loved the chicken coop as well. If i could have one like that, chickens might be okay.

  65. #66 - Bellen says:

    I love Country Living! Love your napkin rings too – thought they’d be good for my son’s family who live on the CT coast. Would love to win – thanks for the opportunity

  66. #67 - Nancy says:

    This is my favorite magazine. I do not buy many magazines anymore, but Country Living is one I don’t miss. The website has so many wonderful things on it, but my favorites are the DIY and the antique and collectible section.

  67. #68 - Debbie S. says:

    Give aways are so nice. Happy Summer!

  68. #69 - Susan Shaw says:

    I spent so much time at the Canadian Living site, I used my whole lunch break, found a bunch of new ideas for crafts, and remembered why I bought that shrink plastic in the first place (for your bracelet instructions), and then almost forgot to come back!. Thanks for reminding me that the magazine has a great website to supplement their fantastic magazine.

  69. #70 - Lori ODonnell says:

    I discovered my amazing friend Cathe is cooler than I knew! You rock the house my friend. Congrats!

  70. #71 - Randi S says:

    I have always enjoyed Country Living magazine, especially the features on decor and on gardens. The magazine never fails to inspire me!

  71. #72 - Linda says:


  72. #73 - Kelly J. R. says:

    I am in love with the kitchen featured in the “Ultimate Summer Cabin”. My husband and I have talked about redesigning our house to include more exposed barn beams and natural wood.

  73. #74 - Royanna Fritschmann says:

    I love Country Living and congrats on the feature – those rings are darn CUTE! I also love the Chicken Coup – I sooooo wish I had the space for my own chickens but I don’t think the city of Laguna Beach would approve…

  74. #75 - Jamie says:

    I’m always eager to try new DIY and Craft Projects – Sewing Paper Flowers, anyone? Count me in! I can just see a big bunch of those on the corner of my sewing table… if I could see the corner of my sewing table…anyway! They would also make a darling gift for a sew-crazy friend.

    Very cute napkin rings. I can also see those in orange w/black stripes for Halloween. = )

  75. #76 - Dogpackmomma says:

    Thanks for introducing me to Country Living. I have now visited their website & found many, many interesting subjects to dive into! The Simple Crafts & Projects got my attention right away – Summer Crafts (where your o-so-clever napkins rings are featured!) will keep me coming back-that’s one of the wonderful things I discovered at Thanks & Happy Trails!

  76. #77 - Susan Audrey says:

    If I ever win the lottery, I will turn to Country Living for inspiration on how to decorate my dream home. My mom used to read this magazine when I was little and now I do, too! I just checked out their website and enjoyed the Bunny Business feature. Gotta love bunnies!

  77. #78 - Jackie G says:

    One awesome thing I found on was Outdoor Living tab! We are in the process of trying to design our backyard. The article on Creative Window Boxes is a great idea. I can’t wait to implemented.

  78. #79 - evelyn p. says:

    I love Heather”s chicken coop!!

  79. #80 - judy says:

    I Love your sight. So happy I came across it~ The country living issue has so many and of course I love your sweet nautical rings. Great as curtain tiebacks too. I am making a bigger version! Aside from that, Aprons! so adorable , pretty, Hot Grilling Aprons. Who wouldn’t love anything my little heiny would be cookin’ in that. Hope I win. Judy from JOPLIN, Mo. ~keep praying for our city please~

  80. #81 - Amanda R says:

    Lovely idea, went to visit the site and have to try the eggplant lasagna recipe but really inspired by the cover of the magazine, beautiful color combo there for a card!

  81. #82 - Beth Despres says:

    I loved the craft project repurposing vintage brooches as magnets. Thanks for a chance to win a subscription – LOTS of things looked great.

  82. #83 - Tamara Hensley says:

    I love the DIY ideas that Country Living always provides – absolutely my favorite part as I’m always trying to figure out how to recreate a look myself for a whole lot less money!

  83. #84 - amber says:

    Oh, I would love to “get back to my roots”. I use to have a subscription and I will always love Country Living for getting me started on my white pitcher collection. It’s been a while though and I would love to have another subscription. Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on being featured in C.L.

    Amber Johnson

  84. #85 - Becca says:

    I love the pillowcase tote craft instructions. Now I’m kicking myself for not buying more funky cases at Target last fall!

  85. #86 - Kari says:

    I love the “Crafty Cures for Cabin Fever” because summertime in Arizona means we spend a lot of time indoors. The timing is perfect!

  86. #87 - Briana Johnson says:

    Congrats, Cathe! These are so cute!

  87. #88 - Mary Ann Romberg says:

    I am an avid gardener and loved the DIY tip about wrapping a vintage doily around a vase…lovely way to display my flowers!

  88. #89 - J L says:

    The magazine’s decorating and craft ideas aren’t limited to what is typically thought of as “country” style. There’s something for everyone to enjoy – no matter what type of decorating you like or what level of crafting skill you have. Another great resource. Thanks for the opportunity.

  89. #90 - michelleb says:

    Loved your napkin rings from the first time you shared with us (haven’t found any wooden rings in my local thrift stores, though). Heather’s Chicken Coop has been amazing from the start. But one thing I found and think I’m going to try my hand at is “How To Make Embroider Portraits” by Jourdan Crouch.

  90. #91 - Kristi says:

    Mmmmm, the Lemon Sorbet recipe sounds absolutely refreshing. I would love to taste that on a hot summer day.

  91. #92 - anne says:

    I liked browsing through Joanna Madden’s collection of recycled vintage jewelry–just like looking through my grandmama’s jewelry box.

  92. #93 - Sue D says:

    Besides that fabulous chicken coop I like the decorating ideas for the Ultimate Summer cabin.

  93. #94 - Robyn Brown says:

    I really like the retro bathing suits. I think they’re so feminine.

  94. #96 - Susan M says:

    Love the vintage hankie tablerunner in the DIY section.

  95. #97 - wendy says:

    love the make a craft room article-great pics!

  96. #98 - Tanya says:

    We already knew you were cool, Cathe. :0)

    I live in Canada :0(

  97. #99 - Hanneke Nelson says:

    Like you, I am in awe of the chicken coop. I am seriously considering buying those plans.

  98. #100 - Nancy Sousley says:

    I’m a suscriber and love relaxiing with my magazine, reading recipes, craft ideas, decorating and gardening ideas. I also like places to see, things to do and buy that are listed. I’m a city gal, never lived in the country, but should’ve been or a Southern gal. I like to cook, bake, craft, entertain, etc. My best friend, who lives in another state, and I are so much alike.

  99. #101 - Robin Willson says:

    The DIY!! Great to see your napkin rings there.

    I just loved the beehive pinata in the June issue …I made one and blogged about it here 🙂

  100. #102 - Jennifer says:

    I love the step by step instructions on how to make a pillowcase tote…what a great idea!

  101. #103 - Ellen Crawley says:

    The most wonderful thing I discovered was a resource for purchasing oilcloth! I have searched with no luck. In the article on making a purse from oilcloth was a great website!

  102. #104 - Ann says:

    I’m not entering as I’m in the UK but just wanted to say Whooo hooo for you Cath and congratulations on you CL publication. I’m always getting confused over the US CL as I’ve been a subscriber to the British CL for over 20 years and still love it.

  103. #105 - Heather Hamilton says:

    I really loved looking at the, “Distastrous Rooms Transformed,” slideshow, and got a lot of fun ideas!

  104. #106 - Destiny says:

    I love the bedroom design ideas – mainly the antique french bedroom that they have shown. Congrats on your feature! Coincidentally, my subscription JUST expired and I honestly have the renewal form next to my computer. I was planning to renew this week online, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I win your giveaway!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  105. #107 - Jane T says:

    I checked out a lot of things on the website and found some fantastic recipes that I intend to try. Thanks for the heads up.

  106. #108 - scpratt says:

    I like the article on Let’s Bring Back The Good Old Days. Our family had an ice bag just like the one they showed.

  107. #109 - Susan Tidwell says:

    Your napkin rings are adorable! I LOVE Country Living and would happily accept a subscription.

  108. #110 - Cecilia says:

    I Love Country Living. But we only get the UK one here, so unfortunately I will not be able to see your feature in person.

  109. #111 - Janine says:

    Congratulations, that your idea has been published.
    I like “Crafting with flowers” the most.
    have a great sunday

  110. #112 - Stefanie says:

    I went to CL website. They have tons of ideas for every kind of home and neat recipes! We live in a log cabin so my decorating seems to have limits. I signed up to receive their newsletter(: Thanks for the offer!!

  111. #113 - Donna says:

    I loved the new ways to decorate with lace. There a few there that I might try. Even though I live in Canada, my sister lives in the States and she would love it if I won a subscription for her!

  112. #114 - Judy B says:

    Love that they link to Etsy in their DIY section. Congrats!

  113. #115 - Wanda says:

    A big Congrats on your feature….that’s wonderful!!
    I have to say that the bit on the Retro Swimsuits on that site was cool. Gave me flashbacks. Loving the black & white polka dots!!

  114. #116 - Wanda says:

    What a great idea! Love your napkin rings! Awesome!
    The chicken wire creations are pretty neato as well.

  115. #117 - Teri "Terrific" says:

    Congratulations and Thank you! I have to say, after perusing the CL site for…well, a l-o-n-g time, I find it difficult to narrow down to one wonderful find. Love the coasters (after Christmas, I dry our tree trunk, cut into slices, paint winter pictures on them, and make ornaments), also the paper vases with the silhouette on the wall (fun!). I also think the avocado soup will be on our summer menu.
    Thanks, again, Cathe. Love your blog and appreciate so much the inspiration.

  116. #118 - simone says:

    Hi, I’m a new follower via CL. You are very talented! Love those cute rings. Cheers

  121. #123 - Ruth says:

    Orange Ginger Margarita—I have to try it!

  126. #128 - Tammy Dittenber says:

    We have lived in a 1926 farmhouse for the last 15 years. Country Living is a constant source of fresh and new ideas. I loved the Chicken Wire ideas, the backyard oasis photos and my favorite is always “What to collect”….

  127. #129 - maryann joye says:

    Thank you for this contest, makes life even more fun than it is ~
    One other wonderful thing I discovered was the vintage state quilt on page 100. 😀

  128. #130 - Beth S says:

    What great napkin rings! And red, white, blue is the perfect color combo for this time of year. Since losing my job, I’ve had to give up all my mag subs, and I would love to be able to enjoy Country Living again!

    Sorry I missed the drawing. I just might have to buy the magazine this month anyway. Looks like a great issue!

  135. This is so super awesome. I featured your rings on my blog…, and just today I came across the napkin rings on …., then I immediately came here to see…. Congrats!!! I’d love to win this copy, but of course! Thanks so much for the chance!

    I had to share this with you: I linked to these adorable napkin rings of yours and my friend said that if I could make them into earrings for her, she has the perfect outfit to wear with them!
