Celebration Giveaway!

Spring is just around the corner and it is the perfect time to set things in order with a bit of spring cleaning.  As we prepare to add another precious child to our household through adoption, I have found myself nesting for the past few weeks.  Closets, drawers and children's bedrooms have been sifted through, oh how I love things when they are neat and clean!  We are just about ready for our Ethiopian daughter to come home! Oh what a glorious celebration that is to be!

As I was pondering arranging our bedrooms and wishing we could brighten up our existing sleeping quarters; it set me to looking over at some great kids bedding.  So bright, so colorful, so lovely to behold.  A girl has got to dream while she is waiting, right? Who wouldn't love shopping here to put together such bright and cheery spaces?

I ventured on to my cupboards and set about dreaming of some new lovelies to spruce up my kitchen.  I began to poke about on here and saw many wonderful things that made my heart pitter-patter!   I really loved this (we just love Paula here!) and this and this!  All of the colours make me think spring!  How fun to be able to shop from home and be able to pick from so many useful kitchen items. 

How about something a little pink for this know we are expecting a girl this adoption!

I don't have any more room in my cupboards for anything, so you don't have to enter me. I'm just dying to know which bedding set you lliked the best! I'm intrigued!

Kimmie...I already received a freebie from them so don't include my name...give someone else a chance.
Thank you so much for the kind words...we haven't heard anything yet but hopefully we'll get the decision soon....maybe as a letter in the mail...I dunno.

I'm a regular (pretty much daily) reader of your blog. :) I visited the other website and I LOVE the Home Styles Large White Wood Buffet with Natural Wood Top and 2-Glass Door Hutch. Not to get specific or anything. :) So happy you'll be getting your newest daughter soon! Praise God!! ~ Camee

mom said...

What a fun giveaway! Especially since it's PINK! Yay!

What makes me think spring? The beautiful dishes by Versace by Rosenthal in Flower Fantasy. WAY out of my price range and something I'd never dare use around here, but abounding with delightful spring flowers :-)

So, put me in for three entries...I commented and am already a devoted reader/follower :-)

I would get a wok. Ours died recently, and stir fry is a good spring/summer meal.

Hi Kimmie, I was just thinking what lovely plant pots they would make with a few holes drilled in the bottom and was about to enter the draw when I read that I was exculeded - oh woe is me! Looks like I'm going to have to do with plain old brown and black plant pots again this year LOL! You asked about the horses name in my post yesterday. Unfortunately I don't know so sorry about that. Bob.

That's one entry.

I think it is never too early to start collecting for my future home (and my home now could probably put those darling, PINK storage containers to use, too!). Thanks for holding this giveaway!

Congratulations on your adoption. It's a beautiful thing.

Katie :)

LOVE the pink mixing bowls. We used my largest mixing bowl as a tree stand this year (lol - don't ask), so I need new ones! I got lost in all the great things I could use on that site but my favorite was the cobalt blue coffee mugs. They would match my cobalt blue counter tops perfect.

I'm also your friend & I've linked your giveaway on my blog.

That makes 5 entries :)

Pink, Pink, Pink! I've been working on going PINK in my kitchen for awhile. Pink to honor Breast Cancer. After having gone through treatment FOUR times, I had a Dbl. Mastectomy in June 2009. I'm Believing for NO more breast cancer.
I love all of the PINk stuff on that site! But, what was my favorite? The knife set!
Mundial 5100 Series Pink 10 Piece Block Set - P5100-10GE

But, it's all beautiful! Hugs! Jo

What a fun give away. I have been reading your blog for a long time...and I always really love it and often pray for you and your family. I would love to have some Le Creuset cookware. I have two pieces my grandmother left me and they are fabulous and beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh, I can't believe she's so close to being home- it will be here before you know it!! YAY!

I simply adore your blog (and am a follower)- daily, I look forward to your words of wisdom. If I had to choose, I absolutely would love the metal measuring cups listed on the site. Ours always seem to end up melted or missing! Thanks for sharing the love!
