Spring Time Giveaway...

...especially for one of YOU!  Yes, a lil' late on my giveaway but never fear - I'm still here.  Y'all forgive me for being M-I-A.  Between a new job ;-) (tell ya more 'bout that later), building a new house, getting one house ready to sell, ball practices - well, ya know - life is jus' a bit busy! 

But I did squeeze in some time to paint a sign for somebody special and I hope one of you will like it.  It'll be nice by your back door or maybe on your garden shed.
 I've also got you a cute necklace with a great saying - "DIG IN THE DIRT" - y'all know how I love to do that...
 ...and it has a sweet picture of garden tools on the back...
 ...and last but not least - those WAY COOL metal tags I showed you a couple of posts back.  Tags for - well... - for you to do with whatever you please. 
I simply wanted to share a lil' spring cheer with you.  I hope you'll enjoy tossing your name in for a chance to win - just leave me a comment and of course, follow me on my journey if you'd like.

I'm wishing you all a simply beautiful spring!

Cathy

P.S. - I've got more "house pics" to show you next - we've gone green - well, the house has anyway!

I found your site looking up tobacco canvas decorating for weddings on msn, and you're the only image that appears. Even more, the images were from Tiff & Shane's wedding, my high school classmates! You're so talented, and I'm thrilled to have found your site. I plan to stop by more often.

CaraRose said...

I would love a touch of Cathy in my home. Love the pic and thanks for the giveaway. BTW, the house is looking amazing.

Faun said...

I found your site typing in an msn search engine "tobacco canvas decorating at weddings." Your pictures were the only images available, and how cool to see the pictures were from Tiff & Shane's wedding, my high school classmates! You're so talented, and I love your website/ blog. I look forward to visiting the site more often.

Oh my goodness...please include me in your wonderful giveaway! The sign you painted is gorgeous - I would so buy that if I saw it in a shop! And I love that necklace - those kind of charms are my newest favorite. Here in northern IL, it is still too cold to be playing in the dirt, so I've been "chomping at the bit" to do so. :-)
