I Won...and a Giveaway!

**UPDATE** Several of you are leaving comments with no way for me to contact you. I have to have an email address.

Look what I won:

It is a cute vintage apron that I won from Sandy at Dream Create Inspire. She is such a talented painter. You have to check out her site. Thanks Sandy, I love it!!



Since I won something I thought I would do a giveaway too. You guessed it, this giveaway is from Oops! Now one of you can have something from Oops gracing your beautiful walls.
Someone will win this pair of bird pictures. They are so cute. Sorry about the glare on the pictures. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.
I will randomly draw a winner on Wednesday, June 11th. So be sure to leave a comment by 6:30 central time.
If you want to see what I did with my set of these pictures go here. Oh! I almost forgot. If you win you have to show us what you did with them, whether it is painting the frame, hanging with ribbon.... I hope you win!

Go here is you want to enter another fun giveaway. She has some great stuff!

Hey Shannon!
Okay...if I win I know exactly what I plan to do with the prints. I am embracing all things bird right now so I really hope I win. Oh, have you checked out the seller Nestlings on the Etsy website? She sells some really cute frames like the one in your hutch for pretty reasonable prices. Let me know if you check her out. I think you would like her "stuff".
Hope I WIN!!

Clearly a day late and a dollar short on the bird print give away! DANG! Do you think they have more? Do you think they would ship them to me in Texas? I do love a good bird print and my mother is moving here for the summer to help take care of our baby and she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES birds. These would be presh!

What a cute blog. I like your bedroom heaadboard, where did you find it. Also, your jeans are a great length, where did you get those? Maybe you just need to be my personal shopper. Love your taste.
