My FIRST Giveaway Win!

A while back I won my very first giveaway from The Little Fox Blog. Let me explain how I won it. The Little Fox Blog asked us to comment on what we would like to see painted of our favorite story book and I chose the vintage version of The Frog Prince, which always was one of my favorite story books as a child. Then, as luck would have it my name was randomly drawn! Is that's simple.  I thought it would be neat to show you that I won this beautiful print of a painting by Despina, a.k.a. The Little Fox.

The Little Fox Blog is one of my favorites because of the sweet vintage feel and all the little things. Ever since I was a child, I've been interested in small items like little pet rocks, polished pebbles, small kiddle dolls, stamps, and coins, too. For Christmas this year, I even purchased a tiny little manger scene to put under my tree. On a recent trip to San Antonio, Texas what I came home with for souvenirs could all fit in one hand.

Her print came packaged with an adorable business card, which has already been given to a friend, and a Thank You card with a discount on my next purchase at her blog!

Which brings me to the above photo of a pendant necklace of the Frog Prince I ordered recently. It was fun telling you about my giveaway excitement and hope you all enter your own favorite giveaways in the future!

My life and the traveling pants.

Years ago, I never wore jeans. Just dresses and skirts. I loved getting dressed up! I don't know when, well, yes I do know when it all changed. I was a little over weight for a couple of years and instead of just buying new clothes. I actually, had my current clothes altered. Note to self: just buy new clothes. So, there I am living in a new town, nothing to do, but eat barbecue, watch reality shows, and go to work for little change. I couldn't afford to buy anything, including new clothes. So, I packed up my car with all that I could and tracked it back to Houston where there was already a job and an apartment waiting on me. In the next couple of months I managed to lose all the weight because I had things to do, people to see. One day, I thought, "I need a pair of jeans, but what size do I wear"? I mean I was already wearing my old pants that were too big. I trucked it on into The Gap where this very nice male customer service rep greeted me and asked me what I was…

A little bit country.

Hart of Dixie is a new tv show I've recently discovered on the CW every Monday night at 8:00 p.m. central time. It's a small town show and reminds me a little of The Gilmore Girls, the town from Back to the Future, and Pleasantville. Inspired by this small town feel, I have put together a country outfit from various stores!
These cute earrings are Montana Silversmiths Small Stars & Horseshoe Post Earrings $34.00, which I found at Tractor Supply. Harley Davidson sells this cool short sleeved shirt at $65.00. Carhartt® Ladies' Double Front Sandstone Work Dungaree pants $44.99 and these adorable Western Chief® Ladies' Strap Classic Rain Boot at $9.99 is such a steal, both from Tractor Supply! Who knew that a gal could buy a lawn mower, and a hot outfit at Tractor Supply?

This lawn mower just looks fun Huskee® 42 in. 420cc LT 42 Lawn Tractor $999.99!
