A Year Ago TODAY!!!!

Just a short 12months ago, exactly one year ago today, I posted my very first blog post. I didn't know where this journey was going to take me when I started, I just know I wanted to give it a try. I have made so many wonderful blogging friends. All the kindness when my mom was sick and when she pasted away meant to much! What a year it has been. Oh the wonderful eye candy everyone shares!! We all have a passion for decorating our homes, whether it's prim or colonial, country.... I so love all the pictures!

So I should of been more organized, I knew this was coming... I had been thinking, YES, there should be a give away to celebrate this milestone!!! MMMM...Thinking....

I must admit, I was more busy finishing up my swaps, getting them in the mail... They say a BLIZZARD is coming for us, starting sometime tomorrow.... YIKES!!! Lots of snow for us... I am not complaining, just hoping this is the last one for the season!!! So back to what I am thinking... Scary thought, can you smell the smoke over by you?????LOL!!!!

So thinking of SPRING... THIS will be my theme... Here is a sneak peek, this bunny I created from a great Kentucky Primitives pattern...
So.... Here are my thoughts/rules....
1. Followers of my blog all you need to do is leave a comment on this post... New followers welcome....
2. If you so desire to post this on your blog side bar, I will give ya a 2ND chance....
3. US and Canada on this one because of the cost of shipping.....
4. I will pick a winner on Feb. 10Th.... That way you will have the whole spring to enjoy your goodies.....
NOW, of course there will be more in the box then just this prim bunny. I am think and I need to start working... So it's a surprise box!!!! I hope everyone is game for a surprise prim box!!!! It's my thank you to my follower/friends that I have made in the last year and all the kindness I have been shown!
Now, off to update Lemon Poppy Seeds, I have a few things new for them too!!!
Thank you all!!! OLM

Marie~

That snow that's coming~scary. I've been freakin a little about it & we're north of you. Looks like you're right around the bullseye. Love how pretty it is, but driving is a nightmare. I'm working nights right now & they pull the plows off the roads (they need their sleep too). Hopefully, it's not too bad when I'm coming home.

I'm so glad you started your blog & have kept it going. I love reading about your adventures & truly like to see each new goodie you make. Congrats on 1 year!!

I really, really, really love that bunny & want him to come to stay at my home.

I will share this on my blog.

Stay warm, stay in (if you can),& thanks for hosting this wonderfully prim giveaway!!
