The question of the day ~ When talking candle fragrances (I clarify, as I found out the hard way Coconut Lime Verbena ~ while a great candle fragrance, is terrible in coffee! gag, spit, spit…) do you prefer floral scents or kitchen type scents? If you are like me, you lean toward floral, fruit scents in the spring/summer and kitcheny scents in the fall/winter. And, if you are clueless to what we are talking about, go here.
And no, it isn’t too late to get in on the giveaway!
In the last few weeks, I was fortunate enough to win two giveaways. The first was a pair of beautiful earrings, which I received from Katie over at Dishin and Dishes. (I believe the earrings were made by Katie’s friend, Nancy. Nancy’s website is Dragonfly In Amber Designs. You will love some of Nancy’s designs.) You’ll also love Katie’s recipes. A few days ago, she posted one for accordion potatoes. They look so good!
The earrings are a deep red/rust color. Sorry, the pictures do not do these two lovely pieces justice.
The second was a gorgeous bracelet, which I received from Raymonde at Everyday I Walk With You. I believe the bracelet was also made by a friend of Raymonde’s. And I don’t believe she (the friend) has a website, which is a shame! You will really enjoy getting to know Raymonde, who along with her family, makes her home outside of London.
I wish you could see and feel this bracelet. It is gorgeous!
Be sure and checkout these sites and blogs. You’ll be glad you did! Thank you, ladies, for the wonderful giveaways!
Now, I have a favor to ask ~ Sonya (Home Cooking with Sonya) has placed in the top ten of a photo contest hosted by Communal Global. You can read about it on Sonya’s blog, but please….please go and vote for Sonya. Vote here. Thank you! Big hug!!
Okay, now that I have played catch-up in a number of areas, we can move on to what Tuesday’s are all about ~ Treasures! This meme is hosted by the fabulous Mari Larkin. Just click on the button below and see who the rest of the SOGWPIP are showing off.
Oh, you want to know what SOGWPIP stands for? Years ago, when one of my mother’s best friends became a grandmother for the first time, Mom found a little pocket photo album with those letters ~ Silly Old Grandma With Pictures In Purse! (And I have no idea why thought of that tonight! However, for years it was a running joke between Gladys (my mom) and Avanell.)
I think you have met this gang before, but I like the "cool" picture. They get their "sass" from me, no doubt.
Now, go visit Mari!
