Over-Due for a Give Away


Hello 
I am way over due for a follower give away and my 2 year blogging anniversary.
 I don't know where the time goes but I have been around here for two years now and some times more than others.
Lately not as much but life happens and I do my best.
 I have loved getting to know you and even meeting many of you. I have heard this time and again of how rewarding blogging has turned out to be and what a surprise it has been to meet so many wonderful women and to truly make friendships from all around the world. I have said it many times and feel so lucky to know you. 
You have blessed my life and for that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Nothing, that I can give you can come close to what you have given me but as a small token to say thank you, I have two gifts to give.
They will be given in the traditional blog way, please leave a comment and I will choose by the random generator two names from the comments. The only stipulation is that you must be a follower, since this is a thank you to my followers.

First gift is one of my linen aprons stenciled  with a French feed sack  image and a French lavender sachet made of vintage rustic French linen.








The second gift is a piece of my jewelry made from vintage found treasures and religious charms.








The give away will end on August 8th at noon and I will post the winner that evening. Please leave a comment to enter, I always love hearing from you.




I always appreciate you grabbing my button and putting it on your side bar but not necessary to win. Thank you so much.
Have a great Sunday and stay cool!


Blessings
Rebecca

  63. R.E.,
    I make no secret of how blessed I was when God introduced us...and He did. I've grown spirtually by your example and words the last two years. I've seen more imagination than the law should allow in your home "tours". You have already gifted me with your friendship...and I cherish it dearly. Congratulations on all the lives you have touched and enriched these past two years.
    As for being a follower...try and get rid of me.
    XOXO
