~ Valentine Giveaway!

I had full intentions of hosting a giveaway for my 1 year anniversary here, however, the assault happened about that time then the move, etc. I reached 100 followers too and that made me so excited! Now I know those of you that have hundreds or thousands following prolly just laughed out loud at that statement. I don't have a lot of DIY things to share...although that will be changing...haven't traveled a lot in the past year or shared in tablescaping so I am thrilled that folks still stop by. I realize time is a valuable commodity so if you take a few moments to drop by, please know that it is immensely appreciated! honor of a 1 year blogaversary, 100+ followers and Valentine's Day let's get this show on the road! :-)

I'm not a "pink" person at me some RED!  I do know that there are many that adore anything to do with pink, including my daughter, so this is for YOU! 

I saw these plates and immediately fell in love with them ~ yes, I did! They remind me of spring, love, "happy" and serving something yummy to good friends & family.  I've added a few other items to the mix and will definitely add a few others before the package is mailed to the lucky winner. There are 2 tea towels, chocolate covered cranberries, Tazo Rest tea and Pomegranite soap at the moment.


Please forgive the photos!   Between my camera and computer....trying to edit....I give up! I am joining Beverly  at How Sweet the Sound for my first Pink Saturday!  If you haven't already checked it out, please stop by and see all the gorgeous pinks ~

For this giveaway you don't have to go to XY or Z and check out all their products & then come back and write a review. You don't have to tweet 'cause I don't. You don't have to turn in circles 3 times and then lie down either. I'd love it if you choose to follow but there are NO requirements ~ just sign up and enjoy!  I will announce the winner next Saturday, 22nd, at 12noon. I think that's a good time!


  1. So pretty! Congrats on breaking 100!

  2. Pat I'm turning in a circle three times anyway cause I love ya. He! What adorable Valentine plates. I have never had anything like them before. I would be thrilled to win your generous giveaway. I'm a loyal friend and follower.

    Happy weekend!

I kept wondering why your blog never came up...and today I was fiddling around and I thought could it be I don't follow....WELL yes maam! Now it will take a day or so for blogger to recognize this and I won't miss a thing around here:) Have a great weekend.
