If Christmas is in July Then New Years Day must be in August.

To celebrate New Years Eve (NYE) I wanted to have my 1st give away.

So I've been thinking, I don't want to make it difficult for anyone to enter but it must be somewhat of a challenge and fun too of course. So keeping with a New Years theme and reminiscing back through this past year, tell us all what you are most grateful for.  You might know right away or you might need to give it some thought but everyone is grateful for something and should be able to enter my give away.

I have so many things to be grateful for each day that I have a hard time choosing. Some are huge events in my life & some not so huge. Some were near misses and some hit head on but good has come from the experience and sadness.  Heck I'm grateful waking up and putting both feet on the floor each day but that won't win no stinkin contest.

The winner will be chosen by my husband on August 2nd and will be announced on twitter and here on my blog. I will contact the winner either via email, Twitter DM or Etsy convo. 

So keeping with my indecisiveness I'm offering 5 items for you to choose from if you are the winner.  Please keep in mind the items are all previously owned. Some are vintage and some aren't so old.

The blue retro flower lite works fine, the Lassie Comic book is Dell Dated  July - Sept 1959, The embroidered /cross stitched bag has a snap closure and is lined (does have a couple small stains on the back and 1 in the lower left front corner, The handkerchief is in great condition in the original box and the child's birthstone February/ Amethyst bracelet is Avon 1992.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

1. Tell us what you are most grateful for this past year. Remember my husband is very sensitive and in touch with his famine side (kinda) meaning if he cries or gets teary eyed you will probably win.

2. Don't forget your email address, your Etsy shop name or your twitter name so I can contact you if you are  chosen by my loving and very sensitive husband as the winner.You can use all three and of course put your shop link down to get some exposure.

If I have forgotten something I should have remembered to put down, I guess it wouldn't hurt to let me know what it is so i can change it.

Blessings to you always

Bee Balm in Bloom

Yes, I know most peoples Bee Balm in Central NY has come and gone by now but my growing season is about 2 weeks behind most peoples. Take a peek!!!!

It is the focal point of my Garden right now

Notice the chair on the deck, the wild Morning Glory is taking over

The Day Lillies are equally spectacular

That black spot you see is my Dog Max taking a stroll through the garden

The photo above is the only Pink Bee Balm flower I found, it was kinda drowned out by the large red flowers but I'm hoping it will come back stronger next year.

Thanks for taking a stroll through my Garden.
