First off I would like to say how thrilled I am to have met all you ladies who have stopped by and entered my 200th Post Giveaway! It’s not too late yet for anyone who comes for a visit . . . you have until the 14th – this coming Friday.
This has been so exciting . . . seeing just where everyone is from and what your interests are. Visiting everyone’s blog and having a tour there has taken up a few of my spare moments over the last couple of days.
I have found the fabric that I want for the binding for this little wall hanging and will now wait
impatiently for it to arrive so that I can put the finishing touches to this gift for some lucky person out there.
So here are the rules again if you haven’t already entered:
Leave me a comment (could be anything like "WOW! I have just the spot for that!" or "Gotta have it!" - really anything goes (within reason, of course!)
- If you want a second entry link to my post with this picture on your blog, then come back and let me know you linked it.
- Make sure there's a link back to your blog (or an email address) so if you win I have some way of contacting you! (I notice that there are a couple of people that I will not be able to contact if their name gets drawn – so double check that you don’t have the “no-reply” thingy happening).
- Check back here next Friday the 14th to see if you’re the lucky winner.
Other weekend happenings included:
Headed to Home Depot and ordered our new windows for the front of the house and checked out the tile section to see what was new. Those are some pretty funky lookin’ tiles there . . . but the light green is very, very close to the paint chip that matches my tub in our upstairs bathroom that will eventually be undergoing a huge makeover. If I use the 3” narrow strip of either the stripe or circle tile (not both!) and the rest gets redone in the white tile, it might work – still a little more “hip” than I was thinking of. It’s an option I guess.
The lilies in the garden have been mass producing blooms for the past few weeks and I’ve been out there cutting bunches for my table top display. This one is probably my least favorite shaped one, (the petals are narrower than all my other ones – it looks too skinny!) but has this brilliant color, dark speckles and little slippers on the stamens . . . very cute!
My daughter was out from Winnipeg for the weekend (my son has settled in with us once more!), to celebrate my husband and my 10th wedding anniversary. We celebrated with a fancy, dancy supper at Remington’s in Brandon and returned home to watch an interesting movie with a totally unrelated ending, kind of movie. Not sure if I will recommend “Knowing” with Nicholas Cage as a great movie, but I guess it was better than some I’ve seen.
This wonderful, “interesting” bottle of wine was given to us by my husband’s brother and SIL. It was a very good wine after we got past the “does it smell like cat pee” phase! Weird name for a wine, but worth a chuckle and a taste.
I’ll be back on the 14th sometime to post the winner of the 200th post giveaway . . . see you then!
‘til next time,
