What's colorful and covered in spots?


A GIVEAWAY (of course!) 

A perfect way to celebrate the first day of summer and that I now have over 400 followers!!!  4-oh-oh...wow, that's quite astounding.  It makes me feel awfully humble just thinking that anyone would be the least bit interested in what I'm up to. 

It makes me wish I were more creative.  It makes me wish I took better pictures.  It makes me wish I knew how to sew and paint.  It makes me wish I liked baking and gardening.  It makes me wish my house looked like a layout in Country Living.  LOL :) 

BUT, it warms my heart and puts a smile on my face and makes me feel ever-so-grateful that you come to visit me anyway :)


I've found myself craving bright stripey, dotty things lately.  And unable to resist adding a few new (and recycled) items into my decor and daily usage.  I've collected a few cheery items to share, because you might have a craving like mine :)  If you do, please leave a comment On This Post Only (and Please Include Your Email.)  This giveaway is open to everyone.  You don't have to be a follower of my blog and you don't have to post this on your own (BUT, if you want to, Please Do!) 

A winner will be randomly chosen on Wednesday, June 30th. 

Best of Luck to Each of You!!!

That's incredible! Over 400! I am not a "follower" but you are in my google reader and I even skip down past most to see if you have posted =) Aren't you glad that you don't HAVE to do all those other things to be considered interesting? Lol!
