My 100th Post and a Giveaway!

Like the trees, we are visitors, guests of the earth - Kim Stafford


Happy Earth Day, everyone!  It's a beautiful morning here in Barrie.  The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the temperature is slowly warming up.  The brown grass is beginning to turn green, the buds on the trees are growing, and daffodil bulbs are beginning to sprout!  The robins, house finches and American goldfinch have returned as well!  It is really starting to feel like spring...finally!

In celebration of my 100th post, I am doing a giveaway this week!  Why?  Because I want to thank every single one of you for taking the time to stop in and read my posts.  I want you to know how much I appreciate your comments, as well.  Hearing from you lets me know that yes, someone out there is reading what I have to say.  

Thank you,  to each and every one of you!  

 I will be giving away...

this beautiful 100% cotton Emma Bridgewater tea towel in the pink hearts print;
with love, from my kitchen to yours!



And this oh-so-pretty 100% cotton Laura Ashley half apron.  I removed it from the packaging to photograph.
Here is a closer look at the waist and pockets.  It's a patchwork print with pretty roses all over it.  I love it and hope you will, too!  



I will put both items in an bubble envelope and send them off to the lucky winner.

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is to become a follower of my blog, if you haven't already, and leave a comment at the bottom of this post.  It's that simple!  Anyone can enter, no matter which country you live in.  I will be putting participants' names in a hat and will draw the winner on Friday!  Results will be posted that day!  Good luck!  


I will leave you with this picture...

This is me...enjoying the warmth of the sun on a park bench on a warm spring day!  
I feel so blessed and thankful.  Hope you are smiling, no matter where you are or what you are doing!
