Hope you had a great weekend.
Here in Texas we enjoyed spring like weather
it was the perfect time to be out in the garden.
So, that was exactly what I did.
I prepared the garden for spring,
cleaned out the beds
and planned a bit of garden styling.
Our high was 87 degrees.
I hate to even share that knowing so many of you are shoveling snow!
I remember what that was like having grown up in Michigan.
However, spring is coming eventually!!
So let's get on with the giveaway as promised in my last post of
If you missed it, click on the link above to share in the memory!
But before I share the giveaway gifts,
I want to take a moment and thank you all for your kind comments and visits.
It has been a fun journey blogging and the time has flown by.
I've seen so many changes since the start of my blogging journey.
Way back when, there were no followings, bloglovin, google friends connect or linky followers.
Yes, we found each other the old fashion way,
by visiting and leaving comments so we could return the visit.
Too many times now, bloggers sign up to follow on google but without leaving a comment,
you can't find them to visit back!
For some, this is fine and maybe this is what they want and not a blogger.
But for most of us trying to learn our audience, a comment helps greatly.
I still believe the best way to grow your blog,
is visits and comments.
Without them, bloggers can't get to know you
or think you care to visit their site!
Now to say thank you for all your visits, comments and friendship over 10 years,
is a few goodies I hope you will enjoy!
This sweet keepsake box from my shop,
will arrive filled with a few treats.
Since we are still in the cozy winter days of February,
I'm sending the latest issue of
American Farmhouse Style.
I hope you will curl up to read it
and slip on these cozy slipper socks while enjoying some delicious
For a girly touch, I'm including this
pretty gold pouch set from Waverly.
I also have some wonderful products for you to try from two lovely etsy shop owners.
Angela from, Little Hope's Blessings
Judy from, Homemade SoapNSuch
Both these products are wonderful and beautifully created.
The lotion is luxurious with a fresh scent of vanilla and leaves the skin soft and moisturized.
The soap is a treat for the skin as well and
all vegan created with a fresh scent of peaches and almonds.
This soap leaves the skin clean, moisturized and non drying.
Next,when the weather does finally break and you can get outside in your garden,
I have a little sign I hand painted and created perfect for your door,
gate, add to a wreath or pass on to someone who does garden.
Lastly, for some fun,
I'm including a gift card for 25 dollars to Dollar Tree.
We all love to shop the goodies there for crafting,
gift making or home essentials.
So have some fun on your next trip to Dollar Tree.
