I hope everyone had a good weekend. I was judging a two day horse show in Barien Springs Michigan on Saturday and Sunday and it was so hot that it was almost unbearable, but I did survive. On the way down to Benton Harbor Mi. where I stayed Friday and Saturday night, I stopped in Holly Michigan to pay a visit to my friend Dawn of Holly Hills Primitives. We had a nice visit and enjoyed a cup of coffee while chatting. Good to see you again Dawn. Dawn has some great things in her shop for fall and more things coming in soon. If you are anywhere near Holly Michigan you should stop in and check it out. You won't be disappointed. Here is a link to her blog.
Now for my give away.
I am giving away a header for your Blog or Website, or whatever you would like to use it for. It is designed by me. I will put the name of your Blog on it and size it to fit. It will come to you in jpg format. Unfortunately, it is not one of a kind, as I have had people email me and ask if I could make them one, so I have sold a few off my mercantile site. I also made a quilted table topper for the fall season, in sage green, pumpkin orange, brown, and gold. There is more..........1 bag of my "Sweet Cinnamon Apples" tart melts, and a "Harvest Apple Spice" bar of my hand poured goats milk and shea butter soap. After I make the draw for these four things, I will draw another name and that person will win a Blog banner. RULES..You must be a follower of my Blog. New followers are welcome. You must comment on this post that you would like to be entered and then put it on your sidebar linking it to my blog, or you can do a post about my giveaway. It is your choice. I will make the draw on August 21st.
GOOD LUCK everyone!
Blog or Website header/banner
Tart Melts and Soap
