Lemonade and a Giveaway

Erika from Inspired Mama Musings sent me a lovely Lemonade Stand Award. Really this made my day because sometimes this whole crafting, blogging thing feels all for naught. The comments I've been getting lately and this lovely award makes me feel like I'm not really out there all alone with my sewing and silly kid stories. Thanks Erika and thanks blog readers for being a part of my little world.
The Lemonade Stand Award is for being a blogger who shows great attitude and gratitude.

To pick up the Lemonade Stand Award:

  • Comment on this blog.
  • Cut and paste the award logo and use it in your own blog.
  • Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude.
  • Link to your nominees within your blog post.
  • Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.
  • Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.
There are so many blogs that inspire me that it's hard to just pick a few but here's a few that I love reading at night when the kids are in bed and I have time to savor it.

Cary from little love blue
Rebecca from edward and lilly
Melissa from tiny happy
Charlotte from fancy picnic
Sherrin from Starashan

I thought this would also be a good time to have a giveaway as well as a thank you and because I've hit my 100th post mark! I have been so thankful for all the people who have stopped by and given words of encouragement and support. THANK YOU!I created this table runner a little bit ago out of reproduction civil war fabrics and some beautiful tea time ribbon by rosa pomar. I can just picture this on the table with some tea and cookies. I hope you like it!All people are welcome to enter, so feel free to leave a comment all those from overseas. Please leave a comment below for a chance to win. I will put them into the random number generator next Friday (edited: I'm extending through Saturday)! You can have two chances to win if you blog about this giveaway and then post back here. Good luck and thanks again! Also for the length of this giveaway I'll be offering free shipping from anything in my3 birdies shop!

Gosh - I'm honoured! Thanks so much!

I know what you mean about 'is it all for naught'...blogging takes up time, and it's fun - but it's also great to know that people are reading what we're writing - and great to reach 100 posts!

Love the runner. Terribly sweet - perfect for tea and biscuits!
