Birthday & Blogiversary Giveaway

                                  It is more blessed to give than to receive.  Acts 20:35b

It's my birthday!   Since I love to give, I thought I'd offer a birthday giveaway.  Not only is it my birthday, but it's my blog two year anniversary this month.  How do you say that?  Blogiversary?

I'm so thankful of all my readers and followers, as well as all of you that take the time to comment or email.

I love this beautiful old postcard which I found over at The Graphics Fairy.  I've never seen anything like it.  I added a verse and birthday greeting to it.  Hope you enjoy it.  I'd have you all over for cake if I could, but since that's not possible, we'll just have to a cyber party, all dressed in our finery.

Okay, now for the giveaway.  I've made a bundle of old lace, ribbon, seam binding, and edging for you.  One person will win this bundle of goodness.  If you'd like to win, and are a follower ~ leave me a comment on this post sometime before 11:00 PM,  EST, Saturday, September 1st.  One winner will be chosen randomly.  Be sure to either leave me your email in the comments, or check back here on Monday morning, when the winner will be announced.

Giveaway ~ Vintage Lace and other snippets of goodness

Here are a few birthday graphics for you.  Enjoy!




Thank you my friends.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Abby~

Happy Birthday and Happy Second Blog-o-Versary! Time has certainly flown...we were friends when you started this blog. You have been such a gift of wisdom and inspiration to me over the years. I don't always comment, but I usually stop by. I love how you love music...something I am not talented in. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us in your blog, and for sharing your beautiful and love filled insights about Him with us to ponder every week. The art work you share is fabulous! I pray you have a blessed year and a wonderful celebration!

He IS Able!
