Still stuffing the 1st Giveaway Box
(just about full).
Made a bunch of tags and threw in some fun 
crafting ephemera.
A weekly planner, address book, paper craft kit,
felted balls and roses etc.....

The 2nd Giveaway gift has unfortunately sold out.
Seems the word got out somehow about
"the bucket"
Did I cause that?
Am I the all powerful OZ of cleaning choices?
An alternate gift will be sent instead since they 
could not determine when the bucket will return.
Equally cool and equally a favorite of mine.

So I added a couple more mags to this group
(I know can you believe it? and yes
that is the WWC Cookbook under the pile)
and all the stuff in the first pic
and that should do it.

I passed the follower milestone, thank you my friends,
 and now have 6 more posts until the big 500.
So 2 names will be drawn on April 1st.
Will yours be one of them?

Also Tanya sent me this link and I am 
passing it on to those interested in the whole
Pinterest discussion.
VERY interesting reading.

Dearest son coming in this week for a quick visit from LA,
WOOT to the 10th power,
and the garden is being tended bit by bit,
in between work and everything else
so it is busy here at OGM.

Seems everyone is busy with all the early
luxurious Spring weather.
makes me a mite nervous though..
What is our planet up to now?

and my final musing:
Is anyone else as thrilled as I am to have Mad Men back on?
jeez louise..about damn time!

You are one very busy lady and a very generous one! It does seem that
blogs add up quickly, but that must mean we have lots to say.... Temps here in Mn suddenly dipped so will confuse the blue herons and egrets we saw for the first time this am. Oh well at least we don't think it'll snow----knock wood.

My goodness, you are being so wonderfully generous in this giveaway.
How fun and exciting!
Enjoy your visit with your son!
My oldest moved to CA last Spring and I have only gotten to see her once since then.
She is considering moving back home in June.
Keeping my fingers crossed. ;)

Thanks again for hosting such a wonderful giveaway.

a sweet giveaway AND Mad Men...whoot..what a day!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh my goodness Z,
What a 'crammed full of goodies' giveaway you have created. Gorgeous, gorgeaus things for some lucky winner.
..... and how funny about the bucket and mop !! I think that you should get commission as it was obviously your post about it that made them sell out !!
Many congratulation for being in the magazine. How exciting. Your home looks absolutely wonderful Z. You have such a talent for placing things and putting it all together. Thanks to Carole, I can see it all. We can't get Country Sampler over here.
....and, you have made me feel bad now, as I have yet to venture out into the garden. The weather is beautiful here at the moment so, I must get out there today.
Have a lovely week Z. XXXX

Anna said...

Happy Monday-Wow, you are one busy gal. Great stuff-Someone will be a very lucky person. Hugs, Anna

at last....someone who thinks like I think. Are we going to have snow in July? Everyone says I'm the queen of doom and gloom, but I'm really not....I just wonder what's going on!
p.s. major computer problems going on in my world right now. I have a guy named PC Andy coming over today to help me.

Tina Eudora said...

Well gosh Suzan I was off line for a couple of weeks and you have been BUSY! Love all the photos of goodies and missed you while I was not around!I hope to catch up on all your doings this week!

Cindy said...

I am so HAPPY that your son is coming home for a visit!!! Whoo Hoo! Let the fun begin!

I am still trying to catch up on that last season of Mad Men, hopefully I will be caught up soon!

Have fun with your kiddo!

TheCrankyCrow said...

What a jam-packed box of fun that is going to be! Congrats on the new followers!! Bummer about the wonder mop though....Hopefully they'll get them back in, as I think I desperately need one! I'm reading about Mad Men all over the place - up until last week, I had never even heard of it! (Yes, we are quite removed from civilization here in Nod....) Going to have to check that one out....but the OCD part of me feels I'd have to track down all the past seasons first....? Have a great visit with your son! Happy new week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (No gardening going on 'round these parts today - only supposed to be in the 40's today....brrrr)

wendy said...

You are putting together a bunch of great stuff. whoooppee
I have never watche Mad Men.

and the planet I believe is off it's rocker...or axis???

Faded Charm said...

Wow, girl you've got a lot of goodies to give away. Somehow I think I missed the memo about nice weather....we're still freezing here and our 9 inches of snow have finally melted. To top it off I've been sick with some kind of crud for days now:-(

I'm not loving Spring like everyone else in blogland.


Marcela para Colorin Colorado said...

I can't believe there is more to be given!!! Yupiiiiiiiiiiiiiii1!!

A Cottage Muse said...

Hello great and powerful!!
Still keeping my fingers crossed!
Congrats on being in Country Sampler, off to find a copy today!

Lana said...

I simply love the way you say it! Enjoy having Ben at home and I hope the joy you share comes right back to your heart. :) Lana

*Made a flying trip to the Ozarks with family this past week and found the neatest little cotton braided table mat. You know how some things just do it? This does!:)

Theresa said...

That is a whole lotta goodness in those boxes! After your first post about Pinterest, I read the original post and then slowly pulled boards, I thought at first that I could go through and save pins that I thought were safe. I discovered that I did not have the time for that, and so deleted all but the DIY and recipes and mine. So now I see that pinning is maybe safe again? I saw a few posts about it, still haven't been back to pin yet, but hopefully all is well in the pinning world!

Sadly, we do not get AMC and boy was John bummed when he saw that! He landed in NYC this morning, I shared our 'mom' info. with him and he asked me to follow up with you... we will have to chat soon :)

Keeping my giveaway fingers crossed! t.xoxooxo

Wonderful additions to your giveaway - it's going to be chockablock full!
