Now onto my next fun lil' giveaway! From today thru midnight central standard time Sept Friday have the opportunity to enter to win a copy of Annie Sloan's Creating The French Look hardback!! I am in LOVE with this book and I know you will be to.
I was so tempted to keep both copies I have but I knew that was just silly and also knew ya would want a copy for yourself!

How scrumptious!! I am telling ya drool worthy here ladies!

Annie even gives you step by step instructions on how to paint wonderful pieces of furniture! I am still trying to get my hands on some of her chalk paints and wax. If anybody else is able to get some of her paints we all can do a piece of furniture and have a linky party! I think that would be sooo much fun!

Just leave me a comment and a way to contact you if you are the winner! Open to the US and Canada only. Sorry to my readers if there are any in other parts of the world. I think I am safe in saying I do not have many if any of those but I thought it needed to be stated.

Reminder & Thanx!

First off I wanted to say thank you to all of my followers and welcome my new friends as well! This past week I have picked up I think almost 10 new pals which to some I am sure is not a lot but to me it is and I am ever so grateful and humbled that ya'll choose to spend time visiting my lil' ole blog. Thank you so very much!

Reminder that tonight at midnight central standard time is the deadline to enter my April Cornell giveaway. Just click on this link and you can read all about it. If you entered be sure to check back in the morn to see who won and also join in on my next giveaway!

Today is a busy day but a beautiful day! The humidity was almost non existent this morning and since I can not get my lawn guys to weed the beds like they are suppose to I just did them. If I did not have so much going on Littliest and I would be out walking right now! Today I need to finish up some orders and get them packed up to ship later today or in the morn. The Nana & The Papa have begun the 14 hour journey to visit us so we pray they have a safe trip! We can not wait to see them tomorrow around lunch time. Speaking of which I need to kick the boys out of the guest room and back up to their room so I can tidy the guest room up for the rents.
I also need to finish cleaning a few bathrooms, vacuum, clean the wood floors....the list could go on and on and I have to admit I am a teeny tiny bit obsessive when it comes to having house guests even if they are family. There have been times though that I have succumb to defeat and have not been able to get everything done I want thus resulting in laundry lying in a huge ole pile in our bedroom. Laundry done this time around but the swagger wagon still needs cleaning out then again maybe somebody will want a frito or some popcorn for a snack! Ha! Oh and we also have our first soccer practice tonight! Whew, I am getting tired already just reading this.
Have a great day ya'll and I can't wait to draw a winner!!

CSN Review

I was not expecting to do this review so quickly to be honest. When I was approached by the ever so infamous Sean at CSN saying they wanted me to be a CSN Preferred Blogger I took my time. My last experience with CSN was not all that impressive. I am now chalking it up to them just having a bad day. I had actually forgotten abt the offer from Sean to review an item from them until I happened upon a post by another blogger. They were posting abt their FREE stuff from CSN. After seeing there cool loot I decided to give CSN another chance. I am so glad I did!
I placed my order last Tuesday evening and Saturday morning my free loot arrived by FedEx! I was very impressed with the shipping time especially since my items had free shipping.
I had been admiring the Certified International Regency Collection for awhile now. It comes in several colors and has many pieces to it. Since I had $40 to spend I chose to purchase 2 items from the collection instead of getting just one item.

Here are the salt & pepper shakers. When I opened the box I was surprised at how very large they are!! On top of that they are very beautiful.

The next thing I picked out was this charger. I was thinking maybe it was made of plastic but nope it is ceramic like the salt and pepper shakers. This piece is GORGEOUS! Not sure what I will be doing with it but something with fall decor I am sure.
Here they are together! I am hoping to win a giveaway or be asked to do another review sometime soon so I can add to my newly forming dinnerware collection.
If you have not checked out CSN yet you MUST go over because they have TONS upon TONS of items to drool over!

Hope your Wed was a good one! I have been working on a few orders and this!;) Still tweaking it so pics to come soon!:)

P.s Don't forget to enter my April Cornell giveaway if ya have not yet. Deadline is midnight central time Thursday!:)

Thankful Tuesday

Wow! I can not believe it is Tuesday once again! I will keep this short and just full of thanx since it is after 11 and this Mama now gets up at 6 am!

This week I am thankful for the fact that Oldest is just thrilled with first grade at a new school! It was undecided going into it because well we are creatures of habit and do not like change.

I am thankful that even though I did not hear my alarm go off this morning something told me to wake up only 5 minutes late.

I am thankful for the one on one time I am getting to share with Littliest though he is very much so missing his big bro.

I am thankful that a "cold" front is headed our way. Tonight it is actually suppose to be 73! Here is hoping the humidity takes a rest so we can enjoy it in the morning.

Last but not least I am thankful that my friend got only good news on some blood work she had done!

Thank you Lord for this week thus far and may you continue to watch over us, protect us and bless us all!
