June Giveaway - Enter Now!

I am joining Elaine for a Sunny Simple Sunday so check it out.

These are some of the flowers blooming in my garden today.  I got out early to do some planting because it looks like the promised thunder storm will come soon.  I'll have to run out and get my laundry off the line.  

I wanted to let you know that the giveaway is complete for June.  My first giveaway - I'm so excited!  I  hope you like the little presents I have assembled.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on either of my blogs before midnight on June 30th.  The draw will be July 1st - Canada Day!!!

Here's a photo of all the prezzies...

First up is a vintage handmade apron from the thrift store in Bancroft.  It has been well-loved and well-used but to my mind, all the better for that.  The candle also came from a store in Bancroft and it smells delicately of cinnamon.  The holder is from Garden Accents in Bridgenorth (I am going to do a post about this store soon).  I have one myself and it's lovely to hang from a tree branch for a little candlelight outside in the evening.

Next up is a sweet little notebook and a coupon wallet for your purse from Michael's.  Just the thing for bargain hunters and thrifters.  I know I always have dimensions and notes written down on bits of paper and backs of envelopes in my purse or car.

These cute cupcake liners came from Michael's too.  I couldn't resist the pale aqua dotted with bright red strawberries...

Last but not least is a sweet little hummingbird fashioned by a local glass artist, a tiny weathered metal heart from Bancroft and a set of 6 hand-stitched, never used, vintage cocktail napkins made in Portugal.

Hope you like it,
