I Found The Most Lovely New Blog and Giveaway


It's the weekend.  Not just any weekend but a holiday weekend!  I hope you take time to thank anyone you see who is now serving our country or has served our country.  They are true hero's and I am so proud that my father served and my son served.  I don't think I could ever be brave enough to do what they have done. 

Let's get this party started!!!  Unfortunately I don't have a party planned.  But I did find a new blog that I really like and on top of that she's having the most wonderful vintage giveaway.  Just take a look at all the goodies she has carefully chosen for one lucky winner.  And see the photo of her own creation below.  Talented and generous.  She is so generous she even explains how you can create a vintage handkerchief card holder of your own.  Who you ask is having such a wonderful giveaway.  The answer is Thespa at Vintiquities Workshop.  She is celebrating 100 posts.  Okay now I feel bad, I'm so late I totally let mine slid by and only promised a giveaway.  But you can enter Thespa's by clicking here.  She has such a lovely blog.

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun and safe holiday weekend.   Hugs....Tracy :)


  1. I just want to thank you for this post, sweetpea. As a Navy brat, mom and wife to Marines and brother-and sister-in-law to Marines, I want to thank every single man and woman who have served to protect my country, chick, and wish them all well.


  2. Thank you for remembering our military ... I am the wife of a former USN Chief ... they can never be thanked enough.

    Love the hanky card.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. Hi Tracy:
    Enjoy your holiday weekend.

  4. Isn't Thespa's giveaway wonderful ~ I love the little hankerchief card.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend ~ God bless our troops and God bless America!!

  5. That is a wonderful giveaway, thank you!

    And amen to what you said about remembering the reason for the holiday! Thanks to your father and son.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  6. A single day to honor all our past and present members of the military just doesn't seem enough, does it? All those who have sacrificed for us. Amazing, isn't it?

    Isn't Thespa great? I adore her, and she is so sweet to boot. A hidden gem, she is.

    Have a great week, my floors turned out horribly. I am sick about it as I paid a ton to have them done correctly. Can't think about it anymore!

  7. Tracy! How cute is your summer blog! I adore the colors. I wanted to let you know that I have chosen your horse story as my Giveaway winner even though it is not yet Friday. I adore when stories are told to me, and yours was beyond cute! I could just picture you at the end of your bed looking at yourself in the mirror. I used to do that as well! Oh my gosh, the For Sale sign put your story over the top! I just loved it! I will post your winning name on Friday. I've got your address; so I will post your little bluebird on Friday. It's just a little something, but I hope you enjoy. Lastly, Oh My Goodness is this apron sophisticated and beautiful! You are a wonderful sewer. Also loved the sewing cabinet you found. Have a lovely week! E
