Three Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway!

Pin It Now!


I started my blog 3 years ago today! Little did I know back then how many wonderful "friends" I would meet and how much this little blog would become such a big part of my life.  

To celebrate I'm having a giveaway! If you would like to win this little button wreath that I made yesterday, please leave a comment. If you don't have a blog, please make sure you include your email address so I can contact you. This is open to everyone, bloggers, non-bloggers, lurkers, even those of you who live outside the U.S.!


Updated to add:  I will draw a winner this Friday, June 27th!  I can't believe June is almost over already!!!

Cindy, Congratulations on your blog ann'y. Your blog is one that I read every single day and always enjoy. I love your 'passion' about decorating on a budget, because I'm the same way. Thank you for letting us know your method of re-finishing and painting furniture too. I'm now in the process of re-decorating & am painting everything in sight! :)
p.s. love the button wreath.

Happy Anniversary! I am always looking for new ways to use buttons in my decor. When my husband's dear Nana passed away several years ago, he requested her 'button basket,' beacause it reminded him of days spent playing with them. I have never thought of making a wreath. Great idea! Please enter me in your giveaway...Michelle (bailey4236@verizon.net)
