I'm still on my week long hiatus, but I did want to pop by to mention a fun opportunity that will appeal to all who have a passion for antiques. The 2012 East Hampton Antiques Show will kick off with a preview party this Friday night. In honor of this well-regarded antiques show, House Beautiful, an Antiques Preview sponsor, will be giving away five of their favorite picks from this year's show.
The items, all of which can be seen below, are available for your perusal on House Beautiful's Facebook page. All you need to do to enter to win one of the items is to follow House Beautiful Editor-in-Chief Newell Turner on Twitter (@HouseBeautiful) live from the show between 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 20th and then retweet a prize mention. You'll then be in the running to win of the five antiques below. Good luck!
