Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week.
I am sorry I have been so absent lately.  
Things have been a little busy around here.
I had to take my camera in to get cleaned, I just got it back yesterday, so I will be able to get back to taking pictures : )
I just wanted to announce who won my 250.00 Gift Card to my online shop.....
Congratulations Anne!

I also wanted to announce the winner of the Annette Tatum  Pirouette Whisper Euro Sham....

Thank you Annette Tatum for sponsoring such a generous giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who participated in both giveaways.


I also wanted to share a picture of my daughter Bethany and her goat Dolly....
Bethany brought Dolly along for our little outdoor photo shoot. 
I will be sharing more outdoor photographs with you very soon.
Hope you all enjoy your week.
Take Care,
Maria

Hi there,
I LOVE the photo of Bethany and the goat! How adorable! Great photography! I always enjoy seeing what you have new on your blog. I also wanted to let you and your readers know that I am having a giveaway on my own blog, Bluebirds and Butterflies. I am giving away a cute black pair of dressy INC pants in a size 8 (a 6/8 person could probably wear them, too!) If anyone would like to be in the drawing, all they have to do is visit my blog and comment where they would wear the pants and what top they would pair with it. I will be selecting a winner on Monday. Have a beautiful day! xoxo Kim
