Well friends my day started out with me waiting in line at the supermarket and turning around and seeing Martha dressed like this...so you know I had to pick this magazine up and add to my basket. As I stood there I was so tempted to peek inside! NO! my mind kept saying, WAIT! I did just that. I bought my goodies and started my day out with goodies in a crisp brown bag with Martha peeking out, in one hand, a Starbucks in the other. I set to go thrifting! It was lovely this morning here in Sacramento a very cool 68 degrees, starting to feel like Autumn. YEAH!
Onto my little shops that I frequent and came across this for $6.00 dollars, and Partylite crystal holders for $2.00, the pair. Couldn't pass those up. I think I am going to use, the enamelware outside by my faucet to wash my hands after gardening. And keep the crystal candle holders on the mantle, to add a bit of a twinkle. I know...ME! Gardening...get out. Ever since moving into this house I have this primal need to dig and plant and feel cool, damp earth between my fingers!
Ok, now my Blog Friends. I wanted to do a giveaway, because I found these great cookbooks when out at my shops and wanted to celebrate. So, I thought and thought. What could I do to celebrate something on my blog. Well I noticed yesterday Sept 10th was my 25th post! I shouted...REALLY?! I couldn't believe it. I have posted 25 posts with pictures and feelings from the heart. SO, that being said, today is the start of the giveaway. I will add all the people names from yesterday's post and todays through the 14th into my enamelware strainer. To celebrate me being BRAND new at blogging and meeting such wonderful people and that I have posted 25 posts...I want to do a giveaway of one of those wonderful, vintage (at least one is original, other 2 are reprints of older vintage Better Crocker cookbooks) cookbooks...winners choice! So my wonderful friends each of you please post and I will let everyone know who the winner is on the 15th!
Isn't this going to be so FUN! I can hardly stand it! Take a peek to see which one you might get to pick!
