Along my Walk & Giveaway Winner

I am so inspired all along my walks...

So many places of beauty.  Be it walking through our little town...




 The inspiration continues through our little neighborhoods too...


Spanish Lavender in bloom






Definitely makes want to continue and clean up and plant my little garden at home, 
I have so much to do and feel a bit overwhelmed after seeing these places of beauty around town.

Hoping to get much done this weekend if weather allows... fingers crossed here!

Also in this post, I want to announce the winner of the signed Romantic Prairie Style

Tracie -
I am very very excited about this. I've been wanting this book so much and just have not had the extra cash to purchase it yet. So I am beyond thrilled! Yippee for me! Thanks so much!

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Forgot to say that your walk looked like a dream. Really did not look real. Are those cherry trees? How lovely. I'd want to race home to make my house look that good too.

Congrats to the winner of this beautiful book!

Are those cherry blossoms trees in your town? I guess that all of the rain you receive out your way is the key to all of the fabulous blooms...whatever they are. Here it's been very dry and we are coming into the season soon where it's tough to grow flowers.....so Whole Foods fleurs here I come.

Thank you again for posting about MY signed Romantic Prairie giveaway sweet friend~ xoxo, Janet
