600 Followers Give Back on White Wednesday

Followers or people that regularly or occasionally read this blog.
 Not many compared to some blogs and more than others...
 I appreciate the fact that someone is interested in what I have to say or show. 
But the numbers do not stand for a popularity contest and this is not a competition. 
 Never... when I started blogging did I think I would actually become friends with such lovely women. 

We become followers of one another because we love to support one another, we are like minded, love what we read or what we see and occasionally we are blessed to become good friends... 

 What I have to say is not earth shattering, sometimes I may be inspired but mostly I just say what's on my mind and in my heart.

 I love blogging because of you. 

You have truly blessed my life and because of that I say a big 
Thank You

So as in Blogland tradition, I would like to give back a little something... it doesn't hold a candle to what you have given me.

To win a gift just leave a comment, and tell me which category you like, it is ok to say as many as you like or all of them and because it is a thank you to my followers... you must be a follower. (this includes all followers worldwide)

So many followers love the bling...

SO I made a necklace that says Follow, just for you

With two old French postcard included just for you French lovers.

So many love to make art...

So I made a pocket full of goodies for you to create something beautiful

So many love Pink...

I made a vintage pink damask heart sachet, along with vintage ribbon, buttons and old millinery just for the pink of it...

And of course so many love White

White stoneware pitcher, small creamer, paper roses with an old floral basket, lace doilies and my favorite a bunch of white tallow berries

For the white lover in us all!

I will randomly pick 4 winners on January 30 and post it on,
the last day of this month Jan 31st. 
Thank you all for your wonderful comments that make me laugh, cry, be encouraged and always lift me up. 

I am linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday... please join her and be inspired.

Occasionally, a little sun does shine here in these gray months of January.
 And when it does I run for my camera

Wishing you a Happy White Wednesday.

Anything white is always alright with me... love the pitchers... thanks for offering such a generous give away... blessings in the new year. Dixie

  4. Hi, I am a fairly new follower to your blog and have been really enjoying it. I do have a blog, creativeblessingsofjoy.blogspot.com , so would love to have you visit sometime. I also contribute to CQMagOnline.com an online crazyquilting magazine which is free and published each quarter. It is so nice to visit inspiring blogs such as your to keep the creative juices flowing and be encouraged. I love your little art bag. Your giving back has inspired me to do the same in the near future. Thanks so much. Jules

  5. HUGE congrats to you!! What a nice way to say thank you!

    m ^..^

  6. Hi Rebecca- You know I've been following you for sometime now...You, what you write here, what you share, is so beautiful and inspiring!
    Thank you for being there!
    Congrats on your 600+ followers! All of the treasures you've shown here are breath-taking!
    and that white sofa...I think I would have plopped right down in that sunshine and had a wonderful long nap!
    Have a great day!
    Tammy :-)

  7. Im your newest follower - what fantastic giveaways! off to peek around! xoxo

  8. Hi Rebecca,
    I am your newest fan and follower. I am fairly new to blogging and have been so inspired and amazed by all of the talented, and kind souls that I have met. Stop by and visit petticoatsandpatina.blogspot.com if you have a chance. Thank you for being an inspiration!

  9. No category could ever compete with your kindness, your honesty, your compassion and friendship.

    I choose you : D

    Happy 600!


  10. Beautiful white sunny photos.....they make my heart sing because we don't swee the sun here very often this time of year and I desperately need it.

    Your giveaway is so generous, but I wouldn't expect anything less from your beautiful heart. I've loved following your blog these last couple years and feel I know you even though we've never met......hopefully someday!

    You know my No 1 pick would be "white", but they are all wonderful gifts.

    Take care,


  11. I've followed you for a bit now and would follow you just about anywhere...well except maybe the ladies room, seeing as how I am a boy cat and all....

    I loved Z's comment - but the girl ALWAYS is so good with words. And better still, I have no doubt she means it too. Anyway, if I were a clever cat I would have written the same thing, but alas I am only a cat....and since SuZan would get first dibs on the "you" category well....I will share with you that I know "she" would love the white CATegory and the art CATegory.

    None the less, we are just happy you have a wonderful blog that I get to come by and visit! Thank YOU and conCATulatios on 600 plus followers!



  12. Congrats on your 600 followers! LOVE the sun spot photos! HWW

    How lovely of you to give something away to one lucky follower. Spoilt for choice, lol, my goodness, what would I pick?

  15. I must confess.....Im an addict to eye candy!! I just love seeing what others have created or the cool vintage finds that they have decorated with.

    I just LOVE your pocket full of goodies!!


  16. OH how I love your blog!! You inspire me! What a wonderful giveaway..personally my favorite is your "Pocket of Art" which looks like a work of art already!

  68. Hi Rebecca,

    I've been following your blog ever since I met you in Tipton, IN at the French Flea Market, then again at Christmas time. Your blog just 'feels' peaceful to me. How could I choose any of the categories, I love pinks and whites.

    Cindy Bee

  69. What wonderful gifts. Anyone of them would be a treasure to win!

  70. Jesus said "Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men". You did and you are a fisher of women. I come to visit for so many reasons...the beauty, the calm, but mainly for the spirtual uplifting I receive when I'm here.
    No need to put my name in. The stockings were beautiful...just got them...and they are a reminder of what a lovely friend you are..that's plenty!
    P.S. I just have to ask...is that a slipcover? I love it!

  71. Hey there Girlie!! I almost missed this fun! Oh wow, love seeing that sunshine on your blog. Today was the first day in ages that the sky is blue! Miss you, dear heart! Your sofa is just gorgeous, my kitties want to lay on it and "waller" you! LOL!!
    lots and lots of hugs and love!!

  72. YOU my friend are over the top generous ... what wonderful gifts you have put together .... I hope I win the white sofa {smiles!} ... seriously, all your bundles are great ... please trow my name in ; )


  73. Hi Rebecca, Congratulations, I love your pocket, it is so beautiful and the pitchers are soooo lovely. Thank you for the opportunity. I am enjoying watching your room. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

  74. Hi , I love your blog, Have been following you for a few weeks now, the things in your giveaway are wonderful, please add me to the list.

  75. Your blog was one of the first I followed in this almost one year of blogging and your creativity is an inspiration to me. I think the art is what I love most but your love for the Lord and willingness to share that is the biggest inspiration.

  76. How in the world did I miss this? I'm so out of it! Congratulations on 600! I have been following for quite some time, ever since I fell in love with your sweet spirit in WWC magazine. And all you've gone through with such courage, has given me inspiration. Thanks so much.
    Of course, I LOVE the basket of white goodies, my fav!
    Becky C

  77. Congratulations Rebecca on reacihg 600,,,,my, my, my, sooooo many. I won a wonderful necklace from you last year, I still love it so. I especially like the white in the basket, as I have been collecting the pitchurs,,and the tallow berries, and roses,
    just are yum!
    Good luck to everyone.
    May God bless your days! Big Time!

  78. Sitting here in awe of your beautiful Blog and worried I will be here for hours. You are gifted in so many ways from your designs, store, your family and home, and your beautiful words... just to name a few. I personally admire your unaffected commitment to your (strong) faith a feature so seldom shared. In this crazy world your words are an inspiration that just may spark hope and desire to make another home a beautiful retreat.
    Could this become an addiction...... Smiles

  79. I'm so glad I got to meet you tonight at Waterstreet Studios, Rebecca. After my recent WWC inspirations, I felt like Alice in Wonderland falling into your studio. Funny how the world works. Blessings to you!
