Springtime Giveaway

Well Hello! My posts have been so far and few between, that I decided to make it up to you by having a giveaway. I put together this little gathering...a 24" stenciled antiques sign, a treenware bowl that holds 3 handmade baby chicks nestled in a bed of angel hair vine and sweet annie. If you would a chance to win, simply leave me a comment telling me where you might place these goodies in your home. To get 2 more chances on your blog and follow my blog ( if you already do, you are in...just let me know).

I am sure some of you might think I have fallen off the weight loss wagon....well I haven't (i was cropping off my ugly unpainted toes and did something make it black)
I have loss 2.2 pounds since my last weigh in. So I am getting there...slowly but surely!

The kitchen is almost picture ready. We are gonna put in the new stove hood tonight.
I keep playing around with the decor...or tweaking as you all say!
I have decided to make some simple tie back curtains....I am gonna go buy fabric tomorrow. So stay tuned!!!


  1. I was wondering where you had gone off to!
    I am glad that you are back!
    I am also excited for your continued weight loss! You go girl!!!
    If/When I win your giveaway I would like to display these adorable little chicks on top of my pantry cupboard! They would be so sweet there, and be in a place for everyone to enjoy!
    One more thing....Yahoo for you!!!

  2. Glad to see you posting & way to go on your continued weight loss. Love the giveaway ~ very generous of you. I have several places I could hang the sign, over a window in our family room, most likely. The adorable chicks would be right on a little stand by our entrance to greet everyone. Thanks for a chance to win. Have a wonderful day.

    I'll post this on my blog tomorrow.

  20. Hi Beth,
    I was so happy to see a post from you...I figured you had been away getting your new home all decorated.
    Congrats on your weight loss. I recently join WW and have lost 4 lbs so far.
    I'm a follower and I love all the goodies in your giveaway. I would most likely put the sign on or over my antique jewelers cupboard in my living room...And the little chicks would go on the side-board that my DH made for me.
    Can't wait for when you share pics with us of your new home.

  21. Love the little chicks. I made a basket with a chicken and eggs, but no babies, they would go perfect with her;)


  22. I would looooove to put your sweet little chickies right on my mantle to give it a little spring cheer!

  23. I would love to win...I would put the sign in my entryway and the bowl/chicks on my jelly cabinet...have a super day.

  24. Great to see you posting! I love the chicks in a dish LOL. Now where to put them hmmmm. Well the sign and chicks will move about the house, I really hate to leave things in just one spot. I could start with the entrance table and then go from there. Keep up the great weight loss.

    I love following your blog and I have the perfect spot for your giveaway goodies. I have a new cupboard in my family room with a bare shelf that would display that sign and those precious little chicks perfectly. I'll dust off the shelf now just in case you chose me.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  34. First off congratulations for sticking with the weight loss....I always envy anyone with this go girl.

    Please put me in for this wonderful drawing!
    I have the perfect spot for the sign above my pie safe which has some really old 1800's saltglaze ink bottles - it would make this all come together and the bowl with the little peeps in it will go on my, right now, very vare coffee table in my den....I just put it in here yesterday and can't find the right thing to put on it.
    How perfect this would be for this small bare table.

    And I am and have been a huge follower!
    Hugs, Karen

  35. Oh what a nice giveaway! If I was the lucky recipient, I would use the wonderful antique sign at my backdoor where I have a very primitive put-together on an 'ole wobbly bench. The little chics would have to join all my little rabbits, carrots and prim eggs in an old dough bowl right in the middle of my farm table..They would look just prim-perfect!! You have a nice week-end and keep up the good work with your diet.. Sherrie

  58. Beth, congratulations on your weight loss! I am on weight watcher's and have made it to be a lifetime member, & I was on their maintence program but...I am more than the 2 pounds over my goal weight now, so I am working hard at trying to get back to within 2 pounds of my goal weight. Trying to maintain can be so hard sometimes! Good luck with your continuing weight loss, as you're doing really great!

    Please do enter my name in your giveaway too! I would place the antique saying sign above my windows on the wall in my livingroom, between my two metal stars that are now there, and I would place the bowl of 3 chicks in the middle of my china hutch in my diningroom. They would be right at home there along with my rooster plates that I have sitting in the left and right hand corners on my hutch. Your 3 chicks are absolutely darling!

    Have a wonderful day and week coming too! Thanks for a chance on winning your really neat giveaway!
