Sweets for the Sweet

This post is a thank you. And a surprise giveaway.

Alphabe-Thursday is one of my favorite things right now on my blog. I love sitting and reading all the links. It is just like a visit to each of you...I enjoy seeing how your minds interpret the same blank canvas into your own personal vision.

So today I wanted to giveaway two little sweets - randomly picked by the integer thing-y from the letter A and the letter B.

It's not a big sweet...but it is a sweet, sweet. And since it is so close to Valentines Day I thought it would be flowers. Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers...so happy and resilient and sturdy and unafraid to be themselves even when surrounded by more elegant flowers like roses and larkspur. So the two prizes for today are these little Zinnia nightlights. I totally love them! And I hope you will too!

Post number 6 was this entry from My Good Babushka. If you don't follow Julie's blog you are missing out. Julie is an artist and a free spirit and a wonderfully creative soul as you can tell by her Letter A link! Julie makes these amazing paintings and hand-crafts. I ordered a skull scarf from her for a present for my sister and my sister went crazy over it. Skulls aren't my thing personally but if you need a unique gift take a moment to look through Julie's shop. And Julie, thank you for taking so much time to do your posts...you are very, very appreciated!

Post number 15 was this entry from Around our House. Carol's blog is always a fun place to visit. She is a lovely, creative, loving, rowdy lady! I know you will find something to smile about, think about, or oooh and awwww over on her blog. Carol is also a really talented photographer as you'll see by her post! And she's a weiner dog lovin' girl. Carol, thanks for your patience with this whole MEME. You are very appreciated!

Julie and Carol, please e-mail me when you have a moment and I'll get these sweet prizes in the mail to you on Monday!

Congrats to the two winners. You are so sweet to do that Jenny. I love Zinnias and those night lights are just too cute. I am enjoying Alphabe-Thursday more then any other party right now because of the wide range of topics covered by just one letter of the Alphabet! Great Fun!

I totally love zinnas. Last year I found some peppermint ones that I loved. They didn't last as long as their cousins, though.

Julie Schuler said...

Get outta town!! I won?!
Thank you!

My name is PJ. said...

Matlock, Aren't YOU just the sweetest thing? The part I like best about this was that I didn't know about it beforehand, so I'm filled with much less resentment about losing than I would have been. God bless you for that!

Oh yeah, um, congratulations to the winners. (cough)
