Winner of the Royal Treatment Give Away! (and an update!)

Keep Reading for the Update!

Before I announce the winner of the Royal Treatment Give Away I want to say some Thank Yous! I am always amazed at the love and kindness of you all out there. For every comment that is sweet and loving and generous; For the genuine friendships that I have found, and for the kindred spirit that is always shown.

(Queen Victoria)

And I want to say a special "thank you" for those of you who blogged, posted, and displayed my Give Away Button, and especially to those who have my blog listed on your blog roll! Since I started blogging last June the numbers of us have increased exponentially, (big word, does that make me sound smarter? Ha ha!) But it's true.

There aren't enough hours in the day to make it to all the fabulous new people and blogs, so I thank you for giving me a place of honor on your own blog. Sometimes mine feels ten yards long, but I want to keep track of you all! After this Give Away I have more wonderful friends to add!

Now to the good stuff, are you ready?

update here!!!

I have two Lisas, and due to my mixup in going by my email
instead of my comment section,

we have two wonderful gals named Lisa
 getting the Royal Treatment!

I'm a big believer in no coincidences
so I'll get to give out two Give-Aways
 which is what I've done the last two times!

Lisa of Pupylov

Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered

these are the two winners of the Crown Give Away!

and wait!

 I have 3 other small tokens of appreciation
to those of you who have me on your blog!

This was just a little multiple Give Away
of a some little goodies
to bless a few of you
 who have linked back to me.

Thank You, Sweet Friends!

Sissie of Sissie's Shabby Cottage,

Rose of My Bella Rosa,

and Margaret of The French Bear.

If you wonderful ladies would email me your info,
I'll start wrapping!

If any of you are interested in having one
of these lovely crowns of your own,
just let me know and I will
put you in touch with my
good friend Kenda.

Thank you dear Friends!
you are loved!

Gardening Day for Easter

This time of year I'm always desperate for something "green". After months of gray skies and brown grass, I ran to Lowe's last week for a little garden "fix". I found these wonderful yellow tulips and bought some for myself and both of the girls who we will see tomorrow, Easter Sunday.

If you look closely you'll see
I'm not the only one enjoying them.

Right now I have them in the sunroom
in an old ice cream maker bucket,
 but as soon as the bloom is gone
I'll be planting them out front.

Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

Have a wonderful Easter,
and enjoy the Bloom of Spring!

Today, I'm linking up with Stacey
from the Blessed Nest
for her Green Thumb Gardening Day.

Easter Cloches

I hope you can stand enjoy
just one more Easter Decor post.
I didn't realize I had so many things,
 until I started going through
my cupboards and bringing it all out.

You all know I'm just a "Holiday" kind a gal.

I've been saving a few little friends
 for the Cloche Party at Marty's.
I found these at a friend's booth
 at Spring Creek a few weeks ago.
Old chalk Easter rabbits and a chicken.
I scooped them all up as she was just putting them out.
Oh yeah, right place, right time!

This is my German glass glitter rabbit that I found
a few weeks ago at my friend Kristi's space
(you'll get to meet her soon)

I had to buy three,
one each for my daughters...
and of course one for moi.

He's one of my new Favorite Things.

and of course "Sweetface" has to be
 included in every Cloche Party.
He's a little spoiled, you know what I mean?

I couldn't leave him out of Show and Tell!

And of course Spring isn't Spring
unless I have a bird-nest...
(or ten)

I stacked my wire flower frogs up,
then thought they looked like a wedding cake.

This little fella appears to have been
trapped by a Bird Nest cloche.

Hope he has some chocolate in his little basket.
I might let him loose for that!

And to celebrate Good Friday and Easter,
I have my Vintage Black Bible
 from my grade school years.
with a bottle I altered.

(here's the Royal Treatment Give Away Crown!)

I'm linking up for Marty's Cloche Party

at The French Cupboard

If you haven't entered my Give Away
The Royal Treatment,
to win that fabulous crown,
and leave a comment on that GiveAway post.

Sending hugs and blessings
for a wonderful Easter Weekend!

Easter Decor Day on White Wednesday

All the white Easter Decor is showing off today.

I found this wonderful vintage-look bunny plaque
at one of my favorite stores,

And here is one of my flock
from the Dining Room.

This old print in the original frame is called
"Rabbit's Snowy Day".

Oh My Gosh, look at their tails!

The gang's all here!

And my "Holiday Cupboard" that gets dressed
in whatever holiday that is at hand.

This month it's filled with white Easter decor.

Love my little Velveteen Rabbit.
He looks a little shy.

These poor babies have had all their ears
broken off, one time or another.

And more woolly, happy sheep.

Today, I'm linking up with my must-do party,
White Wednesday
with the wonderful Kathleen from Faded Charm.

And today is Easter Decor Day

And if you haven't entered my
Royal Treatment Giveaway

then click here to join in the fun!

Hope everyone's weather is sunshine,
Have a wonderful Easter Week!

The Royal Treatment Give Away

You may be thinking,

"Didn't she just have a give-away?"

Well, yes, I did.

But I'm going to start doing smaller ones frequently
so I can share some wonderful finds and talent.


Last year I fell in love with these
oh so sweet, handmade,
and I wanted to share one with you.
Just 'cause I love you all so much!

I thought you might enjoy having
The Royal Treatment.

With one of my favorite crowns,
adorned with vintage bling,
 pearls, and some glitz.

Here I have it on a candle holder as a candle cloche.
I've used mine in so many vignettes for every season.

The give away includes Italian note cards,

and my favorite Gardenia goat's milk soap

This is my sweet friend Kenda,
the gal behind the crowns

And these are from her lovely space
The French Rose
at Leola's in Ozark.

Kenda creates her crowns
in pink, blue, gold and silver,
each with her signature
 vintage jewelry bling.

So if you are ever in Southwest Missouri
be sure to stop by and say Hello.

I'm so excited to share this
 Give Away with all of you!
So leave a comment on this post,
 join as a follower if you haven't yet,
and for extra entries,
 grab the Give-Away button,
then let me know if you post on your blog
 about the Give Away.

And as a Bonus,
 I'll be having a second special giveaway
for my lovely friends...
who have me on their blog rolls.

Just let me know so I can enter you.
April 15 is the deadline.

Have a wonderful Easter Week.
