A few weeks ago, Brooke of Velvet & Linen started what has become the one of the most sought after 'give aways' in the blogosphere. Mark Sage of Bobo Intriguing Objects offered to give three of his iconic 'brickmaker's tables' to the V&L readers whose spaces were selected, based on pictures submitted to Brooke.

Brooke ended up receiving almost 200 entries, and she asked some of her blog friends (27 in total, me included) to assist in narrowing down the list to 10. It was a difficult task. Many of the rooms were so beautiful as is, and I tended to steer away from these. Other rooms could be profoundly changed or updated with the addition of the table, and I seemed to gravitate to these rooms. Alas, none of my top selections made the top 10 (although many were on my short list) - but that was part of the fascinating experience of the voting. Everyone on the selection committee looked at the pictures with their own ideas, perceptions, and and aesthetics. The top 10 selections are wonderful choices and I loved being a part of the process.
