It's Monday and Another Chance to Enter and Win! Enter Monday through Thursday!

Aren't those just the cutest little birds nests? They have little clips on the back of them...when I saw them I just HAD to have them for my "Add Ons" category on the web shop. I could think of a lot of things to do with them besides making my desk look too too cute. But they also inspired me ! I thought "How cute would a little nest look on top of a sweet faux cake?" and then I thought "REAL CUTE !!!" So I made a little nest,eggs and roses ... and then I started icing a cake. I'll show you the finished cake on Friday.

Please leave a comment to be entered in the July give away and tell me if you think a sweet little faux cake would be something you would like to receive. Remember your birthday doesn't have to be in July, but if it IS you get an extra chance in the drawing. Also, every Monday post you enter enter until Thursday night! you get another chance too. Check back on Friday to see whose name was drawn. Until then have a great week.

My wish for you: May you always have an "extra" chance in everything you do.

Birds are my thing...I just love the birds nests. You do such good work.

Susan said...

P.S. Thanks for visiting me. I think I have a "thing" for southern men. Maybe it's because I'm from "Southern' California. I love that southern accent and the good manners, and that sense of humor. My other southern crush is Lane Davies who was on "Santa Barbara" and "One Life to Live." I actually got to meet him and he was just as charming in real life.

Susan said...

pps. I made a mistake. Lane Davies was on General Hospital.
I stopped watching it when he left.

Oh, Francie -- Thank you ever so much!! I got home late last night after visiting my Mom (she lives about an hour's drive away from me) and there was a package waiting on the table for me from you. I was so excited to open it. You have no idea how happy you made me. The moment you opened the box, the aroma of the sachets came wafting out and filled the room. I also love the spray for my pillows and couldn't wait to get upstairs and spray them. That's probably why I slept so well last night! Most of all, I am in LOVE with the set of 6 crocheted teapot doilies!!! I love anything to do with tea and I had just spent the afternoon at a new tearoom with my Mom. I will definitely have to give her a few of these. After the past few months (I had been ill, had 2 minor surgeries and my home was hit by lightning just 2 weeks ago!), I can't tell you how much my winning your giveaway really meant to me. I, too, own my own business called GLAMOUR GIRL. Be on the lookout for a gift from me as a special thank you. Fondly, Joanne ~~
