My Very First Give-Away!

Hello Lovely Bloggers! I'm celebrating my 100th follower and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone of my followers for supporting my blog. I love reading every comment and I'm always excited when a new follower is added to my blog. I also wanted to apologize for my serious lack of answering comments and I hope that I have not offended anyone, it was never my intention to do so. I'm blessed to have two jobs and one slow computer (in this economy I'm lucky to have that much) and my typing skills aren't the fastest either. I'm surprised that I can squeeze in having a blog at all. But I really do love blogging and I love visiting other blogs, though again, I don't leave many comments, I'm sorry. Maybe this Summer when I'm down to working one job? Anyhoo, all you need to do to enter the give-away is to leave a comment. You can enter twice by leaving a second comment telling me that you follow my blog. The give-away ends on May 14th. God bless you, Mary :O)

Summer is just around the bend and I thought I would help get you started with some Summer decor.
I love this sign, I found it at T.J. Max. It's covered in blue craft paper and has a ceramic starfish.
Also at T.J. Max, was this seashell shaped wire basket filled driftwood and seashell potpourri. The scent smells so good!

Some little blue Colonial Candles tea lights~Harbor Mist scent and a white starfish.

Now you can spend a day at the beach, no matter where you live!

You sound like you are so busy, hope you get to slow down a little soon. However, you are right, just having a job in this economy is a blessing. Your gifts are all just wonderful. The Beach sign, the wire shell and the candles are all such wonderful pieces. I would love to have my name thrown in the hat. Thanks so much for linking up today. Hugs, Marty

I just discovered your blog! I am a huge fan! I have to ask--how does it work out with four cats with all of your beautiful things? I really want a cat or two or several really really bad, but am scared they may break something or worse get hurt! Any tips on 'cat-proofing' shabby/french/cottage styles?

This lovely give away would be so perfect with my beach tablescape. I've been gathering pieces for months and this would just finish it off. Now if we could just have a little warm weather here on Lake Ontario's southern shore, I would be ready to host a beach party!
