They're Here, They're Here!

My Mother's Day gifts that I won from my lovely friend at Old Centennial Farmhouse! She had a Mother's Day Giveaway last week, and 'lil ol' me won! So exciting, I hardly ever win ANYTHING! I won a beautiful little tea cup and saucer (complete with tea bags!) and the book "Susannah's Garden" by Debbie Macomber. I also received a lovely hand written card. I am SO excited to be able to sit out on my porch and read my new book while sippping some yummy tea. Ahhhh! Now I just need to find a minute to relax!

Oh, what's this? I guess Duke has decided to join us! Sorry Duke, I am NOT sharing my tea! ;-)

Thank you so very much my wonderful friend, I truly appreciate your generosity!
Alright everyone, now go on over and check out Old Centennial Farmhouse, it is a fantastic blog!

Now for some random pics of the Blessed Country House

Ahh my front porch. It needs A LOT of work - you should see the concrete, it is all cracked, its HORRIBLE - but we love our porch. I would love to get a porch swing and 2 rocking chairs someday, (and build a deck onto the back of the house so I can put my table and chairs out there) but who knows when that will happen!

And notice the blue tarp on the roof, now imagine it on MOST of the roof lol!

And a random pic of one of my foxgloves. So cute! =)

I love your house! It is awesome! I have always wanted a front porch, mine is really small and I prefer my back deck, so I can see my horses. But love the front porch!
Duke is so cute! Look at him, begging for some tea!

Hi Ali! I'm so glad you won, and I hope you like the cup and saucer and the book...I've not read it but I know she's a pretty popular author. I LOVE YOUR PORCH! (And your flag, too!) And, my friend Autum at CREATIVE LITTLE DAISY (she has a blog) had a concrete porch that she painted to look like brick! I think how she did it would be in her archives but that's how she hid her concrete and it looked wonderful! That's just a thought if you're feelin' ambitious! I love your old house, too, especially the roof and the windows up top....very homey and cute.
