White Wednesday & A Monthly Giveaway..!!!!..

I don't often post pictures of my home, but with the waning summer days mixed with the beautiful white arbors my husband has built for me over the years, the look was just too inviting to pass up for my second White Wednesday hosted by Faded Charm. Annie has even posed 'specially for you....and you don't know how true that is as she is always in the pool.....we feel certain she is half seal. I've included the photo of the heirloom chives......I spend all summer pulling these things up because they are so invasive, but still always have some....somewhere. They are so easy to forgive, though.....the blooms are beautiful!

Also, I am now hosting a blogger giveaway to give something back to all of you who stopped to visit and were kind enough to let me know you were here. If you comment on any post during the month your name will be entered once......if you choose to ALSO become a follower, then your name will be entered twice. This will be a monthly 'thing' and the very first give away for the month of September will be a whole loaf (approximately 6-7, two inch bars) of all natural handmade soap. I make and sell this soap in my shop and have a tremendous customer base for just this product.....they love it and I love it....I am hoping the winner does too!

Want to see more "Wonderful Whites"?.....stop by Faded Charm and see what the others have put together for you.......I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Be sure and put your name in the "pot" by commenting or following.....I want YOU to win!
