Hello every one of my sweet dear friends.  Yes we have had some snow here today,,,,,,,,,,    ok  well maybe not alot of snow, just some flakes, but SNOW  just the same... lol   Had ya didn't I,,,  orrrr maybe not. Any way it is very very windy wet and cold this weekend, our Indian summer is gone now.  A very gray and wet weekend, yesterday I spent the whole day in my PJ's,  I never do that unless I am sick. But the day was spent visiting my Pink Saturday friends.  Wow so much pretty Pink out in the world, it made my dull and cold day so much nicer. I finally got the photos taken of the Book and Decorating Journal taken so not I can show you all what my  Give a way is. I will be mixing more in the package but that will be a surprise to the winner. But don't worry it will be a great goodie box.  So here is the first book.


Love this book by Rachel Ashwell, and then Cathy Kidston Journal, these are two great books.


This is just some of the photos you will see in the Shabby Chic book, love the bread box.


And the in side of the Journal. You can click on the photos to make them bigger to get a better view.  I hope you all like them enough to enter for the give a way.  All you have to do, is just leave a comment and you are entered. I will be having the drawing on Wed. So you all have until then to enter. On Thursday I will announce who the luck winner will be.  Good luck to all.

I thank you for all the great comments and for taking the time to stop by for the visit, and then leave one. I just love that..... he he

God Bless;

Hi Alaura! I'm glad you had a chance to stop by and comment about barbie hair!lol Looks like I'm the only one who cut it off as a kid?!lol I know what you mean about hanging out in PJ's I do that only when sick too but sometimes you just have to do it on a yucky day too! I love colder weather so I'm happy now. I just came from the book store and picked up the Publication "Where Woman Create" so I'm off to read that and may just put on my PJ's early!lol Have a great night; Hope you visit me again and I'll be back to visit you too! Sincerely, Jeannette

I must tell you Alaura we had snow 2 weeks ago and it stuck, then came our Indian summer!!!
I know I live in Canada and it might be too expensive to mail books so I will understand if I'm not entered in your lovely draw. I just started reading about Rachel Ashwell. My home is all about Shabby chic and coziness, would love to win it.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Nice to meet you.
Claudie from Canada
P.S. That's what I love about living in the country in a small town. We can stay in our P.J's. all day if we want.
