Fall and Christmas Celebrations--in July!!

We have been getting more rain but 1-2 inches in 20 minutes has it's draw backs in the desert!
Flash Flooding! 
When we lived in Las Vegas it was really something to see.  The freeway exchange where we lived would be completely under water.  They have since redesigned that section of the freeway.
On a fun note I will be giving away this ornament (still in celebration of the rain dance, Christmas in July and Fall's Splendor Shop Hop)!
Leave a comment here and I will pick a name on Monday morning July 23. 
Any new followers welcome too.
 I am finding that my weekends are spend outside working on the house and I have been caught hiding downstairs at the computer too many times in the last couple of weeks.

Christmas in July Sale is still going on through the month of July with a clearance section you can visit here:
and free shipping on magnets, ornaments, and pins found here:

Fall's Splendor Shop Hop is going on until July 22 at the Old Farmhouse Gathering.

Just a little added fun...if you can find my giveaway for the Shop Hop and leave a comment with the link back I will give your name an extra chance at the ornament giveaway.


  1. I love snowmen. I'm so ready for cooler days. Thanks

  2. Sure wish I could've participated in the Shop Hop. I'm starting to miss my Etsy. Glad you've been getting rain but sounds like slow and steady would be the best way to recieve it. I thought Florida needed rain but Illinois is SO very dry!
    Did your renovations get done?

  3. What a pretty ornament! I would love to have a little snowman come to FL! Thanks!

  4. Oh I just can't pass up another chance to win one of your adorable creations. I love them!!! And here is the link back to your "goodie" in the OFG Giveaway

  8. Barb, LOVE the ornie you are giving away...almost bought it in your Etsy shop, but asked hubby his opinion, and while he liked both, I bought the one he preferred! Maybe I'll get lucky and win this one and then I'll have both!
