Time to Welcome all... & winners announced...

What a wonderful week! I've tried to get to all of the rooster parties and the Baby picture Blog Hop. Whew! There were so many and time just flew by! I have to take a breather and then get caught up on my regular blog reading...


Here's a little glimpse of our humble abode...
Come along... We've had a lot of rain, which has been great for the yard and plants. But, I'm so glad today is so sunny & gorgeous here in Coastal Georgia!






I also want to share a few other homes that I've "visited" over the years, through the Personalized Sketches I do...






I truly appreciate everyone for stopping by & leaving such sweet comments during the rooster party Bella Vista hosted last Friday. I made sure you were given an entry for each possible way:
1. just for commenting... 2. & if you follow... 3. & if you got my button and posted it @ your place :o)

Because of the response, I decided to have my hubby pull 4 numbers out of the entries. In no particular order... they are:
1. Suzanne @ Coloradolady

2. Sherry @ Ex Marks the Spot
3. Molly @ Country Memories Home Place
4. Nancy @ Bacardi Mama
Please contact me with what you would like drawn and with the name of your choice.

I'm thankful & blessed by the interest in the artwork that has been expressed here & over the years.
*I thank the Lord for the ability to do something that I truly love to do...



...I hope you've enjoyed visiting and remember:
"You're welcome back any time!"


Blessings & Aloha!

Oh, I love your home! Your lawn is gorgeous and love that porch!

The sewing machine holder in your living room is so cool and I love the stacked suitcases. Do you also use the suitcases as storage?

Love to see your kitchen sometime (and the rest of the house!).

Have a great week, my friend, and don't work to hard.

Oh, and your drawings are amazing. You are very talented!

Oh I so enjoyed visiting you!

Your house looks very different on the inside than one would imagine by looking at the outside. It's all so very cozy and inviting and it's very clear that you have surrounded yourself with things you love. Not just things, they're apparently things with meaning to you.

Thanks for the tour!

Hi MAria!
I just spent time touring your ETSY shop and I am so inspired! Your work is so unique. We'll have to talk soon about a present for a certain someone's birthday. :-)

Thank you for the tour of your home. It is so warm and inviting. How lovely that your Mr. B brings you flowers!

And thank you for visiting at our Auburn table. We had a lot of fun doing this (and we WON the game yesterday!)It's time to clear the table until next Saturday, when we start all over again.

Glad you enjoyed the gator story, too. My friend and I have had a lot of laughs over that...and so have our husbands and kids!

"See" you soon,
Jane (artfully graced)
