GIVEAWAY

Good Monday morning to you.  I did a bonehead thing!  We celebrated my Nana's 97th birthday last night, with 32 family members at The Crab Cooker and I forgot my camera!!  I hope to swipe some pictures from my daughters later.
We had a wonderul thunder shower in the early morning hours of yesterday!  It was so nice, but left us with a very hot and muggy day.
Remember the bunting I made earlier in the summer?
I made three of them.  And hung them in my sewing room.  But have decided that less is more, and took one down.  And it is up for grabs. 
It is pretty soft florals, and would be so fun to use as a bunting across a party table's edge.  Or just strung across a little girls bedroom wall, or window.  Or, in your sewing room, like I have mine.
Just leave me a comment, and I will have Mr. G draw a name later this week.
Have a great day!
PS  I got SO many fun comments about my "Suck It Fifty" post, and in addition to those fun comments that were made on my blog, I got numerous emails and phone calls, and texts too, from friends who read but don't comment.  Thank you for those.  They all made me laugh!!!!

LOVE your bunting...I think you could start an etsy store!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress you wore to Nana's birthday party. Is it new? Where can I get one??

The Garden Bell said...

Hey sweetie, looks like you are going to have a long life ahead. My grandma lived to 99.6, but who know with my wear and tear. With that cute little party dress, I can tell you still have a strong spirit. Just home from my last test of the day, glad to have that behind me now, but the panic of the results may set in soon, fingers crossed.

Thanks for the kind words about the video. By the way, he is not always that serious and has a great BELL sense of humor too.

Off to figure out dinner. Maybe, just fruit today. Or I could go fry some eggs on the sidewalk.

Toodles,
Kate

I haven't been to the Crab Cooker since I was a little girl. Do they still have that huge shark hanging from the ceiling? I was always scared it would fall and eat me! lol!
Love your bunting! Pick me, Pick me!

annielizabeth said...

Hi Kris, I would be honored to win that bunting you created so count me in! Now I need to go and read all your blog posts that I've missed; I've been so busy. Yeah, we finally got the heat and weird weather, too. I need to get some of those neck cooler thingies. I've seen them at fairs and places like that but now since you've endorsed 'em I'll have to get some. Stay cool.

Oh yes, me, me, me!!! I don't have any girls, just 3 boys, but that would look so cute in my laundry room or my office, or even outside on the back patio where i currently have one my boys made out of paint swatches from home depot. loved your suck it 50 post, i just turned 32 and i agree, getting old can suck it. if you don't enjoy each and every moment of your day, what do you have in the end? rock 50 like it's nobody's business!!!
