1 Year Anniversary Give Away!!!

Today I'm announcing my give away.  I have put a lot of thought into the things I chose.  I will explain more on that later.  First off just let me say how flattered I am to have all 136 followers still with me on this wonderful journey.  I can't believe it's been a year that I've been blogging.  We've experienced a lot together.  Job ups and downs with substitute teaching, moving into our house, decorating it, my husband's retirement, birthdays. I feel like I've gotten to know so many people and one day I hope to meet someone via this great blogging world.  If you see me out shopping or thrifting give me a shout out I will be so happy to meet you.

First the rules:

*This is open to my US domestic followers only, sorry international friends.

*You must be a follower but not too worry, if you're not become a follower before Sunday at midnight est. you may enter my give away.

* Leave me a comment and tell me what you like to see more of on my blog or anything that you really enjoy.

* Post about my giveaway on your blog and you can get two entries.  Tell me all about it when you leave your comments.

Deadline is Sunday at midnight eastern standard time.

Here's the goods:

Here's some of the things that you will receive:   Primitive candle holder,  sweet berry candle + spring colors wreath, nest, small Rooster picture, Spinach artichoke mix, flag plant pick

I thought long and hard about what items I wanted to put in this give away, I really wanted it to reflect me and my blog.  I wanted a little spring time in there.  I wanted you to have something yummy to make that won't take up too much time.  I also wanted your house to smell yummy and you know how I love candles.  Then I wanted you to have something fun to wear while working in the kitchen.  When you wear it you can think of me! wink wink!!

This sweet lil' apron I'm wearin'

I had to have a little Americana in there.   This will be perfect in a planter by the front door.

This little candle and wreath is from Warm Glow candles not too far from my house and a must stop.  Their are little yellow flowers and willow buds mixed in the wreath.  It says Spring to me!

Good luck!  Thanks for following!
