First Post and Giveaway!

Hello! Can't believe I'm writing my first post:) I am so excited to be joining the blog world. As you know there are so many wonderfully gifted, giving, sweet and funny ladies out there. I have learned so many things from all of the blogs I visit. One day after baking a Chocolate Chip Banana Bunt Cake I started to position it for pictures to post on my blog. While shopping I found myself taking pictures to share with you. While thrift/antique shopping I would say to myself so and so from this blog would love that or so and so could do wonders with that. I began to pick things out for giveaways! You could say I was bitten by the blog world and was so hooked. The fact that I didn't have a blog posed a problem. So here I am:) What do I have to offer? I don't really know. I'm just gonna fly by the seat of my pants and post what catches my fancy:) I'm celebrating my first post with a GIVEAWAY!

GIVEAWAY ! I had the best time shopping the thrift /antique shops for these special little goodies. Here we have a glass tea cup and saucer and a "gold" tea spoon with a rose handle design and a pretty floral hankie.

Here's a closer look for you :)

Green metal tray with Gardenia print.

Bad picture of a half apron I made special for my giveaway.

Come on take a closer look at the apron. Included are old tea spoons and recipe cards.
Notice a couple more little goodies on the tray? A little bird house and tea spoon rest.


I am so looking forward to many more post and getting to know all who stop for a visit. Leave me a post and I will enter you in the draw. I will draw the winner on June 26th.
