Celebrate with Me and a Giveaway! Woo Hoo!

Well hi there! Can we say wooo hoooo to power being restored? Boy oh boy does it seem like I've been gone forever! I sure have missed you! I will be around all this week to catch up and visit!

As many of you know, I'm a pretty simple, happy, positive person, that chooses to focus on the good things in life. We all get sad, we all have hard times, we all have issues, but if we can train ourselves to focus on all the simple things that bring us so much joy, I truly believe that the flood gates of happiness open and good things flow more easily into our lives.

With that being said, I have lots to Celebrate this month! Take a little hop with me.
First, I am celebrating all the men and women who worked round the clock for six days to bring our power back! The power supply to my house comes from a swampy, icky forest! Those folks have to treck into that mess with all the creepy bugs and snakes to fix the lines! So I celebrate them and the fact that the bunnies were soooooooo happy to return to Bunnyville! They ran around like lunatics for almost 20 minutes straight! Woo hooo!

Next I am celebrating that August 28th was Harrington's one year adoption day! He is 2 1/2 years old.

"Really Mama? A year already?
I'm soooo happy that this precious, little, fuzzy, boy, with the wonky ear, came into my life a year ago. He is just the sweetest thing! Love you Harrington! Umm...I mean Sir Walter Harrington.  ;)

Next I am celebrating breakfast with my niece, Noelle, who loves bunnies as much as I do! Auntie loves you little sprite! Thanks for coming to visit me! (The fairies of Bunnyville Ivy said to tell you hello!)

I also want to celebrate Pops! Isn't he just the cutest fella? In this photo he is decorating a Valentine house with his family! Yes, a Valentine house! How fun! I could just squeeze the pudd'in right out of him! Pops is the dad of my good friend, Kris from Lavender Quilts. Pops is 94 years old and lives with Kris, who takes care of him. I too celebrate Kris for being such a loving, kind, daughter and all around good person in my book!
 I simply adore older people. Two years ago, on August 26, my Cutie grammy became an angel. She was 92. I still celebrate her every day especially when I see something with sparkle or glitter. :) Love ya Cutie and miss ya very much. I know your light still shines in me.

Next I want to celebrate the baby geese that made it through all the hard times (see the Mother's day post) and grew up to be brave and strong. Here they are walking down the middle of my street like a biker gang! A few seconds after this photo, they all flew off straight down the street! It was fabulous!


I celebrate bugs that can turn leaves into lace. I know my neighbor didn't find it quite as cool as I did, but I was fascinated that they ate the leaves and left the flower. To me they created art! To my neighbor, they made a mess! hee,hee,hee.

Finally, I celebrate you! My friend and follower! I can't thank you enough for your friendship and for following along with me and the bunnies and all our little adventures. I celebrate you the customer that purchases my designs and makes me smile very big! Your support of my business is truly appreciated!

So, in celebration of 800 Followers!!! Woo hoo!! I'm giving away my Folk Heart Tree original stitchery! You will even get the hanger!  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. If you are signed up as a follower of my blog (on the right) you get TWO chances! If you click on my Facebook link and become a Fan of my FB page, you get THREE chances! Just leave one comment and say you are following and are a fan on FB. The random number generator will choose the winner on September 19th! Pass the word on!

Hugs and celebrations to you! Happy Labor Day too!
Your friend,

Shell that was such a lovely post to read, it put a smile on my face especially when you wrote about your angel. Our angel is sitting on a rainbow and all her grand children look very hard for her when we see one. If by chance my name is drawn as much as I love your beautiful design I would like you to regift it to an elderly lady of your choice : )

Cobi said...

I've missed you, the bunnies and your lovely writing Shell. I'm not surprised you're up to 800 followers. I'm a dedicated one myself. Glad to see you posting again. I adore those lacy leaves. On the other hand, my shed seams the favorite place for slugs and snails to bread. Almost fell when stepping on a slug yesterday, totally slippery! I tend to count my blessings every day. Makes you feel grateful for everything you've got and keep a positive attitude. You celebrate, I count, but it comes down to the same. hugs for the buns

Congrats on 800 followers. That is awesome. Loved your post and I like the lace leaves although I don't know if I'd be happy with the bugs eating my leaves. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway and I am also a follower. Nola

When the power goes out isn't it funny how many things you think of to do that requires electricity? And trying to do embroidery by lamp lite.

I love LOVE your blog...I read it on my lunch hour and it makes me not miss my little Cotton too much! I laugh everyday at your funny bunnies!
Thank you for the sweet giveaway, I would love to win this to put over by my front door...then my bunny could see it everyday!

I think we have had enough storms for 3 years. I just adore your bunnies. We could never let ours roam as they always chewed the computer cords. I have been so inspired by you that I have started my first embroidery project in 15 years!!!!
Rainy in VA Beach today.
