A great big thank you to everyone who entered my first ever give away.  I loved all your comments and suggestions-it's always great to hear what you like and what you would like to see more of on Hampton Hostess.

For the give away, I selected four books that represent some of the best of Hampton style, design and entertaining and provide great reading. My picks were: Weekend Utopia: Modern Living in the Hamptons, Michael S. Smith, Houses, Houses of the Hamptons, 1880-1910 and Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics.

Congratulations to the winners! Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita, Maureen@ Southern Prep and Beth@ Style Redux.

Oh wonderful! Thank you so much. I love design books more than anything in the world-it was all that was on my Christmas wish list. I would love any of these books except the cookbook because I HATE to cook. My first choice would be the Houses of Hamptons, having spent three wonderful summers there with so many great memories of meeting Truman Capote, Paul Newman, Federico Fellini, Craig Claborne and so many fascinating people. Thanks again for this great giveaway and I am really enjoying your blog.
