First Anniversary Give a way!

Welcome dear blogging friends! I hope that everyone had a beautiful Easter weekend. I can’t believe that I will be celebrating my first year of blogging on April 23. I want to do something special to celebrate. So, to start with I will be having a special give a way. Then I will be posting some photos through out the month of how my home has evolved over my first year of blogging. Let me tell you it has evolved a lot! I have learned so much about the Romantic Farmhouse that I love.

Here is a picture of the give a way. I make these aprons with a vintage tea towel sewn into the waste band. Along with a handy pocket that matches the fabric of the apron.

I want to thank all of you who follow my blog and to many visitors, you make all of the blogging worth while. I have got to know so many of you and each one is such a pleasure.

I believe that we are here in life for relationships = LOVE. Some relationships are here to test us and some are here to love us. lol  Have a beautiful day my friends.

  5. Oh my how perfectly lovely! Turquoise and green and two of my favorite colors (right now)…it’s so hard to pick just one favorite, right? Congratulations on your blogging anniversary!!!


  6. Happy Anniversary! Your aprons are very charming. My favorite color is that sea glass sort of aqua color. I find it very easy to live with. This spring I am smitten with shades of lavender and purple and enjoying playing around a bit with that color. Happy blogging!


  7. Of course, I love the blue because it reminds me of a Robin’s egg. I’d love to make a summer quiche wearing that apron! Congrats on a full year of blogging; you’ve come a long way in more ways than one-imagine what you are capable next!

  10. I know how you feel about blogging – when I started mine I never thought it would be any more than a means to show pictures of my projects to my kids and I truly thought it would eventually become a chore and I would end up letting it slide. Here I am, however many years later, and still having so much fun with it. As for favourite colour – blue would top the list, closely followed by purple.


  11. Awww…. you are SO sweet, Jo! Your giveaway is absolutely delightful! The apron you made is darling, my friend 🙂 I would love to be entered and I would have to say my favorite color is….pastels 🙂 I know, I know, pastels are not just one color, but I love soft colors like pink, blue, and creams because of their refreshing beauty. Hugs to you!


  12. I love blue and all pastels. They remind me of spring and are so uplifting.. Such a welcome change from winter. May I ask where you obtained your dress form? Shabby Art Boutique deserves the credit for introducing me to your blog. Please enter me in your apron giveaway. Thank you.
