Give-away: 3M Command Strips ($120 value)

The other day I had a mystery box arrive at my house. I couldn’t remember having ordered anything, but who doesn’t like gifts so I welcomed it with open arms.


Within the box was another box:


Ah this is the stuff that decorators dream of:


The box seemed never ending check out everything that was in there:


I was thrilled. Just imagine how easy it will be to hang my next gallery wall! Of course my first thought was how about my readers so I contacted 3M's PR company and asked for a give-away box!


They promptly said of course and a new box arrived this afternoon with all of the same swag!


Here is what you get:


-3M Command Medium Organizer

-3M Command Key Holder

Also would love a post on great photo books to use as wall art. Every magazine you read says get a great photo book, art book whatever and frame some of the pics inside but would love some great ideas on what those books would be depending on the type of space you're trying to decorate.
