THESE GIRLS ROCK! The Giveaway is almost here

I simply cannot say enough about the talent and generosity
of my blog buds helping me with this Giveaway.
These are smart, funny, kind, women
who create so many beautiful things with their hands, and
not just for sale; they also take extreme pride in their homes, 
adore their families and work very hard.
If they are new to you, I hope you will take the time to  visit each one and 
hang around their blogs, websites and etsy shops a bit.
(HINT: If you follow them, you get an additional entry for each one)
I adore them, I'm pretty sure you will too. 
The last sneak of the giveaway is this set
 of lavender sachet 

and wall pocket by Donna of

When you visit Donna be sure to click in her sidebar
 on her post on Tinker House.
You are in for a real treat. Donna is a designer
 extraordinaire as you will quickly see.
She also has a heart of gold.
Donna has an etsy shop, don't forget to pop in there too.


This beauty is the work of Cindy at 
Fat Cow Studio
You can find wonderful jewelry in her etsy shop, or email
for special orders.

Cindy and I met just a short time ago, she is very funny and sweet
and already I am a huge fan, and yes, she has cows!

Carole is offering 2 different boxes of ribbon,
 or two separate winners I should say
I introduced you to Carole in this post
"the ribbon lady" awhile back.
Carole does not have a blog but please
 visit her website and ebay shop
and email her about her ribbon of the month club.
(These boxes are samples of her club)
and her house..oh, some day I must tell you about her house!

Tanya is a Nevada girl with a Rocker Chick heart.
You can find her at Bead and Needle where she is usually ogling
some blue-jeaned backside. She has great taste BTW.

Talented as a quilter, jewelry artist and so much more,
Tanya is always working on a project when she is
not rocking out at local venues.
She is what I lovingly call A "Hoot"
This lovely set goes together as one prize, and
find more jewelry and goodies in her etsy store.

The summer issue of Jeanne'd Arc Living.
( my favorite mag)
will be sent to one lucky winner via Carole
of Maynard Greenhouse
Want to see gorgeous flowers or hear
 funny stories of her cats or get great vegetarian recipes;
order the latest JD issue or
 coveted Jill Schwartz Jewelry?
( see her side bar)
Then please stop by her blog and get to know
the gal who keeps me sane, who makes me laugh,
even when I would rather wallow.
Just in time for fall, which is so quickly approaching:

we have this yummy grain sack pumpkin by
Theresa at 612 Riverside

Theresa has a fabulous etsy store, she solders, she sews,
she even makes her own detergent.
 Talent and kindness is just oozing out of this wonderful gal...
and she does it all with five kids in the house!
7 great gifts to be given by
these wonderful, treasured friends,
