3 winners & a sale code...

WOW!!!

THANKS so much for all the wonderful blog comments,



you are all amazing...
and so kind...
MWAH!

This giveaway was so much fun...
I ***think*** we'll do it again VERY soon...
stay tuned...
(like next week?)

first thing for today...

THANKS again, 
 for the sweet comments about our home...

I had several "house related" questions...
after I posted this photo...



the green paint we chose looks a lot like 
bundled sage distress ink...

it's made by Benjamin Moore & the color name is 
Wethersfield Moss  #HC110...

this is probably the first time ever,
 that I'm 100% satisfied 
with the paint colors we chose for all the rooms...

IMHO, choosing wall paint 
is the hardest decision in any home project...

why are inks easy & wall paint so difficult?

the other frequent question was about
 the large wire flower in the photo...

it's about 41 inches in diameter...
yes...giant...
but I loved it...

the tag on it says it is made by Foreside...
look for it at a home decor type store...

one more house photo...

here's what the mantle looks like now...

you can also see the wall color much better...


ENABLER ALERT!!!

I wanted to share a special code 
to receive
25% off your Blossom Bucket
 purchase...
both brand new & other pieces too...

thanks to my friend Heidi at Simon Says...

enter the code

bucket3 

at checkout & 
you will receive 25% off 
your entire Blossom Bucket order...
it's good thru Sunday @ 11:59PM EST...

so...

you could use 



wings


 & silver berry center 
to make this art chick...



this primitive house is a favorite...


I used one on the back of an art journal...
the crow is another Blossom Bucket embellie...
that tree is from my second stamp release...
all the way back in 2009 & I still LOVE it...

click on the link & you'll see an example 
using the tree upside down as a border on an envelope...
never send a naked envelope!

this ruler is stinkin adorable...
and has amazing detail...
the mini star is new...
they're black...
YIPPEE!

and...
there's the house again...


the silverware is versatile...

I used it as legs,
on the art chick shown above...

I used it with "the cure"  & bandaid for this...




and this...

the telephone is another piece that's great for cards...


HAPPY SHOPPING...

just remember to add the code

Wow, such gorgeous samples. The house doesn't look too bad either. :) Congrats to the winners.

Sandra said...

I agree - picking paint for walls has to be the hardest - never looks the same up on the wall in a big area as it does on those little swatches.

Thanks for the fun - good luck finishing up the house!
