Shabby, Tutorials,Giveaways,&Winners,,,n More


Hello and Welcome to a Brand New Day!...... :)

Just a quick post with lots of different bits and pieces.....
It's "Raining Cats and Dogs" here so
I have been unable to take any photos...:(

So..... I thought it might be a good idea 
to share some Pretty Shabby Finds, Giveaways, 
Tutorials and Crafty Gos... 
That I have found Inspiring...

I found this gorgeous image Here at Cute Pink Stuff
Oh.... and if you feel like some Retail Therapy Shabby Pink Style....
Or even just Drooling..... lol
Then you will love this Blog and Store! :)

Don't you just love Shabby Gates?? I know I do....
I thought this one looks so inviting......
It makes me think....
"Come in.. sit down... relax.... &
  Have a cuppa with me on the veranda"..... don't you think??
But I had better let you know I am much better at making good coffee rather than tea....:)
And how about we share a cupcake with that cuppa???

Yep.... I've discovered that even Cupcakes can be considered "Shabby"....:)
