Tulips From The Garden And A Giveaway


Let me start by saying that it doesn’t feel like spring here in Eastern Washington today! It’s still very cold and windy.

I was able to cut a few bouquets of tulips from the garden on Sunday afternoon. I’m so glad I did.

The bright and sunny color has cheered me up. I swear I’m suffering from the seasonal disorder thing the last few weeks.

I’ve got to stay motivated and prepare for the big Farm Chicks Show in just a little over a month.

We are excited about these fun plate stands. We will be bringing several of these to the show. We find a good stash of vintage enamel plates a few weeks ago at the antique mall.

Aren’t they fun?


I haven’t had a chance to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who have recently started following me. Over the last several weeks I hit 200 followers and then all the way to 251 followers!

That is really exciting for me and I love having you all stop by and visit.

SO…this sweet domed cake stand in the front with the red base…

I’m going to GIVE IT AWAY to one lucky reader.

  3. I wish I could say that I would make darling cupcakes to go on there but I don't know. I could see put a few flower buds under it. Thanks! Christy

    I have been reading your blog and have you marked as a favorite, but have never signed up as a follower. I shall do so today!

    I love those enamel plate stands! I think one would be perfect sitting on the counter to hold special "goodies" for my hubbie. What a presentation, huh? I could score a few points--maybe LESS disgruntled remarks for his long "honey do" list!

    Kudos on your increased blog following and THANKS for the opportunity to enter your generous giveaway!
