40th Birthday Giveaway!

The snow is melting; the robins have returned; buds are coming out on the trees; the spring bulbs are up...spring is definitely here...and my 40th birthday is a week from today. I am thankful to have made it through the long winter. I'm thankful for my dear husband and sweet children. I'm thankful for my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I'm thankful for my health and home. I'm thankful for another year of life. I'm thankful for an outlet to express my creativity with my glass bead business (and I'm thankful for Lollishops, too!). I'm thankful for you all, dear blog readers. There really is so much to be thankful for. In remembrance of the Bible verse from Acts 20:35, "...remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive", as an expression of thanksgiving, and to celebrate my birthday, I have decided to give away what you see pictured above. Included in the birthday giveaway is a pretty hankie with pink tatting stitched around the edge, a pendant with light pink milk glass and a bright pink Swarovski crystal butterfly stitched and placed into a silver tone setting, and a large (it is one of those big ones!), rose-strewn, Roy Kirkham "Garden Rose" teacup and saucer. To enter simply leave a comment. If you blog about this giveaway, leave another comment after you do (I will be checking!) and you will have another chance to win. Chances to enter will be closed March 26 at 10:00 p.m. Thanks for entering!

Happy Birthday sweetie,
