Happy Blogging Birthday to me :)
These last three years have been so much fun . . .
and I have made so many wonderful friends.
I hope that you like the banner above,
because it is half of this weeks Give-A-way.
Before I announce the winner of last weeks give-A-way . . .
I would like to show you some of my
wonderful Goodwill finds.
First is this little shelf.
It was a perfect bargain for only $3.
I love how I can stuff all my little spools of lace
into the cubby-holes.
These two little free standing shelves were $4 each
and already painted white :)
I enjoy having little nooks and crannies for storage:)
Then I found two little shelves,
that are perfect for my little jars of buttons, $2 each.
I love the Goodwill
and have been having fun organizing my creative space, on the cheap :)
Okay, you have waited long enough . . .
The winner of last week's Give-A-way
The Dishtowel and Potholder is Cindy of:
Now this weeks Give-A-Way
A shabby chic banner
and my attempt at making a rustic necklace.
The Rules are the same:
1. leave a comment
2. be a follower on Google Friend Connect
I will announce the winner for this on Monday the 19th,
then start the third give-a-way.
I hope that you will all visit each postand get your name in the hat.
God Bless you all.
Your blogging sister,
Congratulations and happy blogging birthday Connie,ReplyDelete
Your sewing room really has taken on a character..it looks lovely.

your lovely designs.
happy week val xx
Good Morning Val, and it is a lovely morning. I get to announce the winner of last weeks give-a-way and I get to start another for this week. Not only that but as I look out the window I can see that we are going to have a sunny day. We have been having grey skies, so the sun is a welcoming sight. Thanks for stopping by to help me celebrate and good luck :)Delete
Congratulations to Cindy. As she's the bee lady I am going to have to pay her a visit. Your next giveaway items are gorgeous, I love the bunting. Your good will finds are amazing. They look wonderful snuggled up in their cubby-holes. Have a lovely week.ReplyDelete
Hi Ali, I am delighted that you dropped by to help me celebrate and that you know this week's winner. Cindy is a very sweet girl and has been a follower of mine for at least two of my three years. Good luck on this week's gift :)Delete
congratulations to the winner. I love your banner and that necklace is great. I absolutely adore the tag you put on that that says if it were perfect it would not be made by me. I may have to copy that idea :)ReplyDelete
Hi Ann, The older I get the more I realize that you can burn yourself out getting stressed about every little mistake, so if you start out with the attitude that it is not going to be perfect, you can eliminate the stress and have fun :) The point too is that when you're not stressed about it, you do a better job, LOL.Delete
Win- Win . . . some of the wisdom that we pick up along the road of aging, can be worth a few wrinkles :) I'm happy that you like the banner and good luck :)
good morning Connie-great finds-I love shopping at resale shops too-always great finds.ReplyDelete
congrats to the winner! and thanks for the giveaways
Hi Kathy, it is great to see you and thanks so much for stopping by to help me celebrate :)Delete
Once again congrats on your blogging birthday! Congrats to the winner of your 1st giveaway. I love your shelves for organizing everything. I really love your banner and necklace you made and thanks for the chance to be a winner of your next giveaway. Wishing you many more years of blogging.ReplyDelete

Hi Julie, and good morning. I was feeling under the weather yesterday, but woke-up this morning really renews and refreshed. It's going to be a great day! I got to announce my winner and I got to start another give-a-way, not only that but the sun is shining. Thanks so much for visiting and for being a loyal follower to my blog. The encouragement that I get from sister bloggers brightens my day and puts a smile on my face, thank you :) Good luck on the give-a-way I am delighted that you like it.Delete
I`ll have to hop over to visit your blogger who won the giveaway, I am finding lots of creative blogs that way.ReplyDelete
Great idea using the jars for buttons , & I love your goodwill finds, have a great week! It is rainy & icing here in Pa, nice day to stay indoors & be creative!phyllis
Hi Phyllis, I have been watching the weather across our nation and you guys are getting it bad. Here is the Pacific Northwest the weather has been quite mild in comparison. Stay warm, have a good visit at Cindy's blog, and thanks so much for stopping by. Your name is in the hat, good luck.Delete
Look how sweet you are...giving us presents on your bloggaversary!ReplyDelete
Hi Trisha, thank you and I must say that I am having a great time doing these give-a-ways. I am delighted that you came to help me celebrate :) Good luck.Delete
I just recently found a basket with a metal and wood handles and metal rope looking top to it at goodwill, I love looking for little gems to use around the house at cheap prices :)ReplyDelete
Hi Connie, Goodwill is a fun place to shop, you never know what you will find. Sometimes nothing and other times treasures:) I was going to try and make it there today, but my husband just called and we have a man coming this afternoon to work on something out in the shop, so I might need to stay around the house. Mondays are Senior Days at our Goodwill and I get an extra 20% off. Great day to shop :) Thanks for stopping by and good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
Happy Birthday Day to you!! Fabulous finds.ReplyDelete
Hi Becky, thank you and thanks for stopping by to help me celebrate my three happy years of blogging. Good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
LOVE that banner Connie!! The necklace is very sweet too! Your gifts have been wonderful for this give-a-way~~~Blessings~~~RoxieReplyDelete
Hi Roxie, thank you so much. I'm having fun with this little celebration and getting a lot done out in my barn. Not just putting up shelves but I've also started a small red, white and blue quilt that I think will look great out on the porch this summer. Have a great day . . . I'm adding your name to the hat, good luck :)Delete
What a great way to celebrate you blog anniversary, a giveaway. Congratulations to Cindy! Great finds at Goodwill! That is a very cute necklace.ReplyDelete
Hi Rebecca, thank you for helping me celebrate and thank you for being such a sweet blogging sister. I do hope that you are keeping warm. I can not imagine the long cold dark winters that you have up there, but I guess it's a great time for quilting :) I'm adding your name to the hat, good luck.Delete
Congratulations on your third blogging birthday Connie. I love all your Goodwill finds and so perfect for all your crafty bits and pieces. I'd love to enter your lovely giveaway please, the banner looks so gorgeous. :)) Patricia xReplyDelete
Hi Patricia, your name is in the hat :) I have been very fortunate in finding these small shelves and all that I had to do was wash them. They were already painted white. I went to the Goodwill again today and found another terrific load of stuff . . . I love stuff, if it's the right stuff, LOL. Today was Senior Day so I got an extra 20% off . . . one of the benefits of having grey hair :) Thanks for stopping by and good luck on the give-a-way.Delete
I love Goodwill and love all your finds! You stuff looks so nice and neat!ReplyDelete
Thank you . . . believe me when I say that it looks it's very best when I am taking photos, LOL. When I'm in the middle of a project it can get pretty messy :) Thanks for stopping my to help me celebrate and good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
Hi Connie thanks for visiting and following my blog. I will now be following you too. Congratulation on such a successful three years! Love your Goodwill finds, I too enjoy shopping the thrift stores but haven't really mastered the art of turning the finds into anything cute and useful like I see so many others do. I'll keep working on it though. Best, SharonReplyDelete
Good Morning Sharon and welcome to my little blog. Thanks so much for following me back, I love making new friends. Have a lovely day and good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
What a cute dishtowel and potholder, Good job Cindy!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I am delighted that you like Cindy's gift. Good luck to you on this week's gift :)Delete
Congrats to the winner!!ReplyDelete
WooHoo, that's a pretty banner you made, love it!
Hi Dorothy, it is great to have you stop by. I am delighted that you like the banner . . . your name is in the hat, good luck :)Delete
Congratulations to Cindy!!! Love your banner and necklace....I'd say it is perfect!!!ReplyDelete
Good Morning Carol, thank you, that means a lot coming from you, thank you. Good luck :)Delete
I love Goodwill...especially 50% off Saturdays! Great finds! oooo and lovely rustic necklace and banner!ReplyDelete
Hi Zenia, I am happy that you like the banner and necklace. Thank you for following me and good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
Lucky giveaway winner - congrats to her! Everything you make is so lovely. Great Goodwill finds...my GW hasn't had anything "exciting" for months now. Though there's really nothing I need and I certainly don't need to be bringing any more stuff into this house when I have so much to give away as it is. So perhaps there's a good reason why I'm not finding any treasures, huh? ;-)ReplyDelete
Hi Melanie, I know the feeling, but the hunt for treasure sometimes has a very strong pull, LOL. I am so happy that you are visiting and getting in on my give-a-ways. I can hardly believe that I've been blogging for three years. It has been so rewarding . . . making friends and getting a look into what makes us all unique and also so what makes us so alike . . . it has made the world a smaller and cozier place to live. I know that there is a lot of bad going on in the world, but through blogging I have discovered so much love and kindness. Thank you for being my friend and good luck on the give-a-way :)Delete
Love your giveaways. Thank you for the well wishes for the holidays. I hope you had a joyful holiday season and that the rest of the year brings new adventures.
I couldn't log in here using my new blog location, so I thought I'd leave it in the comments. http://baerbookspress.com/blog/ I'm raffling off a free eBook copy of both my books. Have a great year!
Good Morning Denise, it is wonderful to hear from you and thank you for the address to your new blog. I am so excited for your success. The best way to make a living is my doing something you love. Bravo to you for following your dreams :) I'm delighted that you like my little give-a-ways, good luck :)Delete
Now, I'm coming over to check out your new blog.
Denise, I just went to Amazon and downloaded Net Switch.Delete
I am almost finished with the book that I am reading, and I am looking forward to reading yours next.
This is exciting :)
Connie, Thank you so much for supporting me as a writer. I truly appreciate you buying my book, and I hope you enjoy it.Delete
Have a wonderful Birthday celebrating your blogging success, Connie!ReplyDelete
Luving your creativity ;)
Many thanks for visiting FHC and cheering me on as well !
I am delighted to have you visit . . . I can not believe that i've been going this for three years.Delete
Thank you for our encouragement and good luck :)
Congratulations and how very nice, Connie. And thanks for visiting me and leaving such a nice message. I've been sporadic with posting and visiting the last couple of months. I hope to do more in the coming weeks.ReplyDelete
it is wonderful to see you here and thank you for helping me celebrate my three year blogging birthday . . . times really does fly when you're having fun :)
You have some great storage there Connie! I love the banner and the rustic necklace. It's perfect to me :)ReplyDelete
Hi Sherry, I am delighted that you like these and so happy that you came to help me celebrate.Delete
You're a sweetie pie and good luck :)
Hi Connie, I just saw your comment on Daisy Days and came over to say welcome to the quilt/blogging world. Or at least to those blogs you haven't found before. :) I love your Goodwill finds and need to stop by there myself - so often you can find neat things there! Don't count me in your giveaway (I'm simplifying here!) but it's nice to see your cute blog! blessings, marleneReplyDelete
Hello Marlene, it is wonderful to meet and thank you for your encouraging words and warm welcome :)Delete
Connie, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. It's great to find your blog also. I'm following you on G+ and love your giveaway. What a talented lady you are. I'm working on my craft room so your storage ideas are great inspiration. I only have email or bloglovin on my blog to follow. I hope you will.ReplyDelete
Hi Linda, thanks so much for visiting and for following my blog. You're a sweetie pie :)Delete
You are finding lots of little treasures!ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by . . . I love company :)Delete
How lovely to see you again Connie, and there's so much for me to catch up on! Exciting! I need all those little shelves you've found. So handy for all the bits and bobs that don't have a home. Thanks for your visit, I love your wonderful and generous comments. I think I might just pop over and see what Steve's up to! Bye for now, JaneReplyDelete
Hi Jane, it is great to have you visit. Steve hasn't blogged for quite awhile. This new place has taken up so much of our spare time. I do think that after he retires he will probably start blogging again, but for now work and home are keeping him on his toes :) Good luck on the give-a-way and thanks again for stopping by :)Delete
I love the buttons in the jars! The banner and jewelry are so cute. Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyDelete
Have a great day.
Hello Pam, welcome to my little corner of blog-land. I'm delighted that you like my give-a-way and good luck :)Delete
