A Milestone for my Blog

Well, what do you know, I have over 100 followers! I am so glad I could write something, anything that some would enjoy.  I’ve received so many encouraging and gratifying notes.  I confess I must blog with care, this gets to be addicting.
I have enjoyed this jaunt into the blogging world.  I have learned so much from so many, and I am talking about very useful stuff, not just miscellaneous info.  My grandmother taught me how to upholster years ago and yet I have found several short cuts and helpful hints in bloggy land that would make it easier.  I have wanted to do slipcovers but all that measuring held me back and now I have learned that is not always necessary, I have wanted grain sack anything but never found any I could afford and now I can make my own on the cheap! I can redo a floor with brown paper.  I can live vicariously on a small farm with goats, cows and of course, chickens!  I think I am truly a farm girl at heart.  I would find it hard to pluck chickens though.  (I have done it in the past as a young girl and I can still remember the stench, of course, if I was REALLY hungry, I could do it again). But I digress, I have seen what a garden looks like in February in Australia, what a treat when my eyes were tired of seeing snowy ground, and toured a French country home all while sitting in my cozy recliner by the fire…need I say more? 
So in honor of all those that have joined me and put up with my stumbling around learning this blogger stuff (I have yet to get my blog organized and tidy but I will get there!) I am going to have a giveaway!
One of my hand painted signs.  I will let you choose from a small variety:
How about this hen house sign or…
A rosy sign you can add your own wording to or…
a Laundry sign…

The rules for this giveaway are easy..just leave me a comment on this post.   Feel free to share this with anyone or post about it.  The more the merrier.  I like short term giveaways so this one will end next week on Tuesday, March 15th.  This is open to EVERYONE EVERYWHERE so leave me a comment.  Thanks again for stopping in to visit me and I promise I have lots and lots more to share!

  11. Hi! My cousin recommended your blog to me today - and I have been reading and enjoying everything all afternoon. Just one thing wrong! I love, Love, LOVE your Studio Cottage!!!!! The cost for the plans is MORE than reasonable!! My abilities are NOT!!! LOL I'm definitely going to have to see how much someone would charge me to build it. Did I mention I LOVE IT????? I also enjoyed your blog. Your signs are TERRIFIC! You do a great job on them and the sayings are different than most of the signs today. GREAT JOB!!!!! (What happened to Sandy's Quilts? I didn't find any there. Maybe she sold them all???) :-)

  12. I'd love to win that hen house sign! It's darling! I'm sure my girls would appreciate that more than the sign they have now: a scrap piece of wood with the words "Chicken Shack" written on in too small, crooked hand writing! All the signs are beautiful, though!

  13. congratulations on your 100 followers. Your blog is so cute. Love the sigh!

  14. wow 100 followers! well done! I would love to win the Hen House sign. My kitchen is done in all chickens and roosters and the colors would match perfectly. Thank you! akgeldbach (at) gmail dot com

  15. Congratulations!!! I love the Hen House sign! We have about 30 chickens and I always visit my "ladies"!!!

  16. You are quite the artist! I just recently started painting, and your roses are beautiful!! I love those chickens too--wishing I had a few for laying eggs! It's not easy painting--you have to know how to shade things so they have depth and shadowing is important--your art is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!!
