Whooohooo, you have put me over the top!!!

Hi all,
Today is a huge event for me and you are all the reason why!
Because of you I have hit my goal of having 100 blog followers and I am sooo excited. Of course when I started this blog adventure I never dreamed that I would have 10 followers let alone 100! To think that anyone would take the time out of their busy day or night to read my blogging words just boggles my mind and humbles me all at the same time. And to celebrate I thought a blog giveaway would be the perfect way to say thank you!
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which giveaway pkg you would like to receive the most and I will put your name onto the list for that pkg.
There are four catagories:
Vintage pkg.
Tea pkg.
Ephemera pkg.
Linen pkg.
And for the grand prize  which is a one of a kind french inspired collage, all of your names will be included.
Hope that makes sense, lol.
So there will be 4 separate winners and then one winner who will also win the collage. So actually you have two chances to win!
Heres are the photos of the pkgs. with a little explanation of their contents. The grand prize collage is still in creation at the moment so it will not be shown until I announce the winners.
I will announce the winners on May 1st!
Linen fun. Two hand embroidered pillowcases, a hand embroidered peacock hankerchief, vintage yellow tassel trim and a pkg. of vintage blue ric rac.

 Ephemera (old paper lol)!   Vintage sheet music, vintage french book pages, wallpaper, fruit label, paper bag and advertisement from my last Paris trip, vintage women's digest booklet, vintage playing card.
 Tea time!   A box of my fav french tea, teacup note pad, frilly candy cup basket, I love tea button, one of my teapot magnets.
Vintage finds!   Very old ornate frame, tin candy molds, vintage poker chips, retro buttons, cool old bottle, weathered old strawberry basket.

Good luck everyone and thank you again for making my blogging goal come true :)
PS. Anyone can sign up for the giveaway, you don't have to be a follower, I'm an equal opportunity blogger :)

What did I do now?

Hi all, I don't know what I did to my blog this time, but I noticed that my last post didn't post it's entirety  on the front page.  It says "read more...." and my readers must click on it to see the rest of the post, so no pic is out on the front either. I don't know if it's something I did and can't remember how I did it, lol, or if blogspot is changing things up on me, so I am writing this to see if this happens again. And since it's such a rainy stormy day here in Calif today I'm displaying a photo of my garden pond from last year. I can't wait to fill it up with fresh colorful flowers again.
talk to you soon,

The neighborhood.

Hi all,
a couple of weeks ago, my hubby and I took a walk around our local town and this victorian house with it's worn iron gate just caught my eye.
Oh the history this gate could tell.....
