Life is Sweet

I live in a little old house
(My Petite Maison)
with life so sweet...

While picking herbs overflowing in the garden
in beautifully sunny, California...

I got to thinking...
(It's okay, don't be scared ... ;)

I'm going to have a giveaway
because I'm a girl and it's my birthday
this week... Something Shirley (Temple)
may say... in character.

So, I'm going to have a giveaway!
Starting today, leave a comment
and I'll draw a name
January 26th...
or first thing January 27th
(I'm running a bit behind!)

For a copy of the Special Valentine Issue,
which I am very fortunate to be a part of the process.

This Special Issue of PORCH is full of~
Romance, Romance, Romance


...And
Some french items (of course!)

A Marie Antoinette Trinket from my shop
It's a surprise and won't be stocked
until after the drawing, but is dahhhling!

&
One of my favorite, beautiful
Books ~ Livres

Thank you for being a part of
My Sweet Little World!

Au Revoir for Now
xoxo~

Well the kitty caught my eye but the photos made me stay. Just beautiful. Why settle for just a week-make it birthday month!!! I'm hosting a giveaway party as well. Drop by and maybe I'll get to send you a birthday present. Debbie

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

Some blogger said she celebrates her birthday the entire month. Well, I think the whole week at least should be set aside for one's self. I tell my daughters not to bother buying me gifts on holidays. Because I will certainly treat myself to what I want!
Happy Birthday, girlfriend!
Brenda
