2nd Blogiversary Giveaway

I'm a little late to celebrate but you know how life keeps getting in the way of getting things done. Ha!
I haven't been out in blogland as much as I'd like to lately, but I really do enjoy all the wonderfully generous sharing of ideas and loving kindness that blogging has brought into my life.  And for being part of that I thank all of you!

So in honor of my second Blogiversary I'm offering you, my sweet compadres of the blogging world, a sweet giveaway!

For 2nd anniversary's modern says china and traditional says cotton

So here's my take on china..... 

I like to collect these little sauces and plates and mix and match them into coaster sets.

And tie them up with a pretty ribbon or vintage seam tape.

These are just a sample of some I've collected.  Not sure what I have left.  Maybe the winner could suggest a color scheme.

I tried a new to me site for photo editing called PicMonkey.  Don't really know what I'm doing yet but at least the pictures are brighter than my originals, see below.

Then for cotton, let me go with burlap.  I've been working on these cute little burlap bags, sewing on old lace and buttons and such.  Something like this..... 

Ooooo, burlap!
Only different.....

So next week I'm going to the antiques and fleas at and around Round Top.  I'll pick up something fun to fit in the bag, 
a surprise!

Here's the drill:

Followers, shout it out for one entry!

Entry number 2, let me know what treasure you'd search for at Round Top in a second comment.

Post this little picture on you blog's sidebar, link it back to my giveaway, don't forget to let me know, for 2 bonus entrys!!  Woohoo!!

I got life happening around here again.....
finishing up on a volunteer 'opportunity' and 2 sets of company coming.

So I'll close entries on Easter night 11:59 PM CT and pick a winner Monday.

Thank you all in advance for entering and giving me some warm fuzzies, I feel the love!

It's Always Something Random

This time, the program I use to download pictures is not working for some reason.  If I weren't so computer illiterate I might be of some help to myself.

So here are some random pictures I don't think I've shared before.

This is bracelet and earring set I am donating to the Heart to Heart Gala for the Sacred Heart Clinic in Round Rock, read more about it here.

 The Boy's birthday, in January.  I'd forgotten how he'd put the candles.

 Oh, he'll be home next week but we'll have to share him with this lovely lady, I'm not saying it's going to be and equal share, but what's a mom to do?!

His cake's always made like Neapolitan ice cream.

I organized my storage unit yesterday, no pictures of that, but I do have one of a cute little cupboard I bartered with a gal for.  Still in storage just waiting for some inspiration, any ideas?  At least I can get to it without too much effort now.

The Little Girl and my Mr. Wonderful after Christmas on the San Antonio river-walk, blinded by the light!

My mom, my sister, who's coming down for Round Top 'squeal', her 2 grand daughters (from her son), and her daughter, who's pregnant for the first time, with twins, 'squeal squeal'!

 And this picture I took with my phone so I could show a different niece some ideas for bridesmaid earrings.
Now I can pin it and she can see it in Spain where she is for the semester.

And I missed my 2 year blogiversary at the beginning of the month so I need to put my thinking cap on and come up with a giveaway.  So please stay tuned!
