Time for the OWOH Giveaway!! Come join the fun!

Hello friends,
I've decided to join the wild ride again this year. This apparently will be the last year that OWOH will be featured across blog land. It is a huge undertaking for one person to spearhead ,with the event having over 900 blogs featured last year!... and it has been a fun way to meet fellow bloggers. I hope to meet a few new faces this year myself.(stop by the Whimsical Bohemian to see other blogs that have joined the wild ride here:

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my little blog..
 I hope that you enjoy your visit and will take the time to browse around a little.
 What can you win? I will be giving away a compilation cd that features articles on such things as self sustainability, gardening,  raising backyard chickens, and lots more. The cd is from when my husband and I had a free online e-zine.(in 2006- 2009) It features over 1,000 pages of information. If you enjoy learning about being more self sustaining, how to grow your own garden, and so forth you'll enjoy the cd.
Simply leave a comment on this post to be entered in the contest. Contest ends Feb.17th.

I would LOVE to win this information! As a traveling family (husband is an active duty soldier), we have to do quite a bit of container gardening, but as his retirement is getting closer, we're ready to learn other ways to be more self-sustaining!

If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!



antmee said...

I would love to be more self sufficient! With limited soil on our 5 acres I would have to make raised garden beds! And with that much work involved it wont be filled with flowers! hugs

Hi Tina, thanks so much for stopping by my blog during this OWOH event. I would love to be entered for your giveaway. I had always dreamed of having a self-sufficient farm but alas neither my ex or current hubbie were/are not the least bit interested. I am thinking about goats and of course some chickens, I think I could handle those alone...anyway, love your blog and will be back after the OWOH event is finished.

Brianne said...

Thank you for visiting me at Under the Florida Maples. It was nice to "entertain" another Florida girl. My husband and I love Arcadia. We haven't really stopped - we drive by ever so slow- because we drive by either really early or late on our way to Sanibel (because I am a beach lover - and there is a little "old" beach cottage there in Sanibel that was there in the 1960s that I stayed in with my family). But, I digress, because, what I want to emphasize is that I will love to follow your blog because I absolutely love Florida. Through and through, I love Florida. Although, I love the small town Florida, like you do, the most. Oh, yes, please enter me in your OWOH contest for your gift. My contact is Thank you and I can't wait to catch up with you throughout Spring and Summer. Peace. Brianne

Brianne said...

Tina: Brianne again. Sorry about saying picture when I meant cd. Too much catching up with the OWOH. I also wanted to say thank you for the name Nova. My house has passion vines all around, so you know what that means around here in early summer - butterflies.
