The Rose Bowl and a Giveaway

The Roses have arrived in all their sweet glory!

I just put together a simple little bouquet. These are so fragrant.
This year is going to be a banner year for roses I think.


This post is my 508th post! Can you believe that?

So! I think that calls for a celebration...


How about a giveaway this Friday?

Ok... And what about one next Friday too?

OKAY!

So here's the deal... I will be giving away one of these cute books from Hoffman Media . One this Friday and one next Friday.

Just leave a comment on this post letting me know you would like to be chosen.


I'm joining Marty for Table Top Tuesday

Cindy for Show and Tell Friday

Sherry for Home Sweet Home
