"Girlfriends on The Go- Drawing"...


I am having a drawing !!
This afternoon I decided that I'd like to have a drawing for a "girlfriends on the go" handbag. I will also add some little tuck ins into the gift as well.(no special occasion/just something I wanted to do.."just cause")

If you'd like to participate simply leave a comment to this post and you will be added into the drawing to be held next Monday. I will post the winner's name on Tuesday of next week.

(The handbag in this drawing will have a black colored handle though.)
I'll be adding a few fun tuck ins to make it worth your while.
My way of saying thanks for visiting with me and for being a friend.
--------------
Today was ..well..rather uneventful...I did work a wee teeny tiny bit on a project for my etsy shop..I'm creating a really cute retro decorated birdhouse..with a little paper wrapped tree branch that will have little blue birds on it with flowers taken from the patterning on the birdhouse design papers. Really cute and whimsical, but the paper mache birds have to dry for a while before I can complete my project.
--- We had alot of rain today. ..again..but we need it here. We have had several months without any rain, so to get rain for several days in a row definitely has been a blessing.
---- For dinner this evening we had quite a few leftovers..didn't feel like it would be practical or necessary to pitch it, and it was all mostly from the night before, so I just made dijon style breaded pork loins then added the left over moussaka and some baked beans and sweet potatoes to the side..what an odd combination huh? but no one complained. ..plus all of the leftovers in the fridge are gone now..ha.Waste not/want not. We put the saying to use.
---I'm wanting to purchase some mulch..alright a bunch of mulch..we are talking about 80-85 bags..to redo our flower beds in the yard.
We'll have to definitely work in the evenings though on a project like that, but it has been at least 3-4 yrs since we have replaced the mulch and the flower beds are really looking ..well..shabby if I say so myself..so a nice new layer of mulch will do wonders for it soon.
We'll have to arrange for our lawn service to help pick it up and deliver it as they have a large trailer behind their truck.
But that is one of the projects I want to get accomplished this summer.
-----
I also am wanting to get my son's bedroom painted this summer too.
I already have the paint but just haven't had the motivation to tackle it yet as I'm the one that does all the paint work in the house.
And it just hasn't been my most looked forward to project, but it needs doing.
Wish I had a girlfriend to call to help out, but alas..no girlfriends here.So, I'll just have to tackle it by myself soon and just be done with it.
I'd like to paint a really cute mural in his room too. That would be cool..what little boy wouldn't like a mural on their wall?
Anyhow..those are a few projects I'd like to get tackled and out of the way soon.

Well, that's all for now.Have a lovely evening!
Thanks for joining me in "blogland"

Please add my name to the drawing. What a nice idea.
Sometimes it is so hard to get motivated about certain things.
I have to paint the deck and I don't want to. MB

How cute and sweet of you! Please enter me in your fun drawing! I love your blog, always fun getting to know a farmgirl! Thanks!

Love the tote bag!!

Don't worry about the painting....I'd wait until Autumn when you can open the windows to get rid of the fumes...there that is your excuse!! If I lived near, I'd sure come by and help you pain. It is a yucky chore...I'm doing a whole interior repaint and I am so sick and tired of it. Also threw in the attic clean up and I too need about that much mulch this summer......argh.....so much to do and so little time!!!

Oh, please send me your address again so I can get that package out to your daughter!!

The bag is darling, Tina!

I know what you mean about wishing for help with the painting. I tend to start and rarely finish. It's more fun with a friend!

Hey Tina, I have missed chatting with you. Been out of town and had goat sickness. Everything is better now. I have missed coming and reading your blog along with everyone else. Girl, if I was close you know I would help you paint. That way, you could come and help me in the dining room, been working on that project for 3 yrs now. lol
I love the tote bag.
Guess what?!! We have rain. WOO-HOO!!!!! We have been needing that.
Have a good one.
