Joys of Blogging


There are so many things to  Love about  Blogging,  and the month of December brought about another  Fun  Reason,  TWO to be exact:  Winning  gifts in Give-Aways. 
 
Oh!  The Thrill. 

The first Surprise came from   Carol at Our Sears Kit Home.   The gift was a collection of Vintage items:  a White Enamelware Pan with a  beautifully edged piece of Vintage Linen  along with a collection of Three Vintage Books by Grace Livingston Hill,  More than Conqueror,   The Strange Proposal,  and  The Best Manthe earliest of which was published in 1913.   According to the publisher,  she was a  “writer of romance for the Modern Girl where a sympathetic buoyant spirit conquers discouragement and teaches that true love and happiness will come out of the worst trial.”

 Carol and her family live in a 1909 home that came in a “kit” from the Sears, Roebuck and Co.  Catalog.   Do stop by for a visit and see her lovely home and read  it’s interesting history.

 Then,  the very same week,  another surprise!  The next gift was from  Vanessa at Southern in my Heart.  The gift was an oversized tea-towel featuring the 12 Days of Christmas, and is far to pretty to use.  So, just hang it and let up and show it off.  Along with the tea-towel was a Book of Poetry named  Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolias by Patricia Neely-Dorsey and a lovely pewter cup.

 Vanessa is the Gracious Southern Girl at Heart  Hostess  to a weekly  Party  (another thing to Love about Blogging)  each Friday.   Be sure to drop by to see all the lovely projects and decorating ideas.

Thanks to both of these ladies for the lovely gifts and introducing me to another Joy of Blogging!  (Maybe this could turn into a television series or book  like  Days of our Lives  or  Joy of Sex).  The Poetry book has been finished and will be referred to often,  and I do plan on reading the books, beginning with The Best Man.   (Something every woman deserves……The Best Man!

So, with a sympathetic buoyant spirit I will be joining:
 House of Grace on Tuesday

Many Hugs,    Honey
