A Wonderful "Give Back", 2 Give Aways!!! & My Own lil Pearls of Wisdom...

My stars don't you just love "Give Aways"? I sure do and maybe one of these days, I will be one of the lucky ones winning one, but until then I want to tell you about two beautiful blogs that are doing just this.

First is 52 Flea. Laura is doing a wonderful "Give Back" don't you just love how that sounds :) Laura has a beautiful blog that once you visit one time, you will keep coming back over and over because of the beauty that she captures in her pictures and her posts. I borrowed one of her pictures to tell you about her "Give Back" because well...Look at the picture... need I say more. One of the neatest things about this give back is that she will shop for your favorite things while she is out treasure hunting herself at the Madison Bouckville Antique Show , if you are the winner!!!

The second Give Away is from Carol of the beautiful blog Raised In Cotton who is celebrating her 4 year Blogiversary!!. Carol's blog is also gorgeous and my stars wait till you see the pictures of her dream house. While you visit her blog and enjoy the beauty of it, make sure you visit her her store too, she carries some beautiful items including these magazines, 4 issues of which she is giving away to one lucky winner!!

The final wonderful Give Away is from Carole of the beautiful Maynard Greenhouse Blog, celebrating her 100th post!! She is giving away the 3rd issue of Jeanne d'Arc Living, but not only that...She will be joining Laura of 52 Flea treasure hunting at the Madison Bouckville Antique Show where she will be shopping for a few items with a Jeanne d'Arc Living look about them for the winner!! If you haven't been to her beautiful blog, please do. It really is beautiful, she shares her beautiful pictures and lovely posts....I especially love the black and white pictures.

You know it still amazes me that up until a few years ago I didn't know what a blog was...I know...scandalous! One of my girlfriends has had a blog on Zanga for years, I have loved that it was like a journal letting me keep up with what she has been up too and how her family is doing. Less than 2 years ago, I found my first "art blog" and I was hooked, these amazing woman had these little link thingys on their wonderful blogs that just opened up a whole new world for me. I found one amazing woman after another who not only showed their beautiful creations, but they sometimes even shared tutorials, simple how to's and gave ideas for decorating, even redoing furniture, paint techniques and the most amazing thing...they shared their lives with us, through pictures and the written word, they became "friends" who you could just grab your coffee or tea and in your jammies or sweats no matter what time it was...early in the morning or late, late at night, you could just have a wonderful visit and catch up with each other. I am embarrassed to say....well..not really lol that I would often tell Mr. Wonderful..."Oh my friend so and so did this or said that or posted the prettiest picture" or my favorite....You just don't understand hunny, they just so get me, they like the same things I like and they don't think I am nuts cuz I get excited when I find a box full of old buttons, lace, vintage papers or pictures, old baby clothes and practically start jumping up and down from excitement, while trying not to yell "This is my best find EVER!"(well till the next best find)....you get what I'm saying right....see what I mean :) Then these lovely woman do one better and do a "Give Away" or a "Give Back" and the funny thing is that I am the one that feels I should be giving them a gift for sharing their beautiful blogs with me. Funny thing is.....now I can't wait to have a few more posts under my belt so I can do a "Give Back!

Until then my dear friends....

Hello Rose! Thanks so much for stopping by and introducing yourself. I just love your blog name! :0)

Pretty pretty pretty blog, too. Giveaways are fun, aren't they??? Blogs in general are fun and so rewarding, too. Have a great day!

Hi Rose!
Stopping in to say "hi!" between picking berries and canning green beans!
I get what you are saying and do the same with ideas or ladies I have found on blogs, and when I tell my sisters or mom about them, they will say,"is that someone you worked with?" I think they are afraid I have some 'imaginary' friends ;)
Great post!
