This-n-That, a Giveaway and a Shamless Plug

Hey ya'll!  We've been busy here around the homestead since we got back from our vacation.  Unpacking, laundry, and tidying the house have kept us pretty busy.

One of the funniest moments of our trip was when one of our kiddos (who shall remain nameless) stood in front of the Lincoln Memorial and said "I thought he'd be taller!".  *snort*

I've also been busy filling orders from my etsy shop!  Folks are loving the subway art signs!  (Only $18 for this sweet piece of encouragement! I can do custom color combinations, too!)

Speaking of my etsy shop ... Sasha over at Lemonade Makin' Mama is giving away a bunch of fun goodies.  Some of which include my yummy goat milk soaps made here in the Old House Kitchen! So hurry on over and enter the giveaway!  Tell her I sent ya! 

We are also busy sprucing up the house since we'll be having company next week and hosting our church's small group for a 4th of July (on the 1st!) cookout.  We want the house to be in tip top shape! 

All this month I was saving up my magazines that I got in the mail so that I had some good reading on the drive out to New Jersey, to Maryland, and back, but it was so hard not to open them up and take a peak!  I was thankful that my Country Living magazine comes in a plastic wrapper!  Makes it a bit easier to resist, you know?!  I often post pictures from Country Living (with proper credit, of course!) because I love their photography!  Love. It!!!!  So I was so happy to see in my latest issue that they are having a blog contest!   So..please...pretty please if you ever would be so kind as to hop on over their and nominate yours truly?  I'd love ya for it!  (Shoot, I'd love ya either way, but I would definitely be super thankful!)

So hop on over to  Country Living and fill out the nomination form HERE (it's super quick and easy...painless, too!).  Please and thank you!  *wink*



My daughter said the same thing...Mama I thought he was a lot bigger....
