SpRiNg GiVeAwAy!!


five days!!!!! FIVE DAYS!!

SPRING
IS
HERE!!!

~~GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED~~


box o' spring!


my newest favorite cleaner.
smells so good. cleans even better.

because every woman could use
a little polka dot glam when cleaning.


so you can assure your husband, (if you're married)
that you did not move his screwdriver somewhere
because alas, you have your own pair of PINK ones!
the cutest napkins.
ever.


"thanks a latte" and some of the others say
"thank you very mocha"~seriously!? too cute!



these darlings were just too sweet to pass up.
and they smell so pretty too.
practical beauty can't be beat.


take a break
and eat chocolate.
from Europe!

My favorite thing to do when the weather gets warm is take a nice, long walk outside and soak up the fresh air and sunshine!

Heather said...

I can't wait to get our my EarthBoxes (the BEST way to grow plants/herbs/flowers when you don't have a big back yard!).......can't wait to get a pot going full of fresh herbs! And flowers, of course, flowers!!!

Sharon said...

When it's warm out, my favorite thing to do is just BE OUTSIDE. Whether its early in the morning and I'm watering the flower pots, or its afternoon enjoying a glass of fresh mint tea on the patio, or whetherit in the evening sitting on a blanket watching the stars! I'm happy. :)

Jeane` said...

What a BEAUTIFUL, refreshing and desirable prize!!!! I hope! I hope! I hope I win!!!! ;)

Kristina Shirk said...

The first warm day of spring I love to go outside and pull all of the dried, brown tops off of my day lily plants. The little green shoots of new growth that I uncover shout to me, "Spring is here! Hallelujah!"

Mark Buckwalter said...

can't wait to get my hands dirty in my flower beds. i am already potting some pansies today! bring on spring!

Debay said...

My very favorite thing to do....go to the ocean, with my husband, my striped lawnchair and my organia Peruvian coffee and watch the waves roll in for the afternoon. Can't beat THAT!!!

Bess said...

When the weather gets warmer, my favorite thing (besides being on the beach, of course!) is to open my windows wide, declutter, and clean out. There's just something about a warm wind and open windows that makes me want to clean like crazy! :)

Jeane` said...

(I realized i was supposed to state something that neglected to do): My very favorite warm-weather thing is simply to enjoy walking barefoot...to hear crickets chirping at night...to smell fresh cut grass and to enjoy a glass of wine with my hubby around our fire pit after the kiddos are down for the night!

AND the original reason for this second comment is to say that I linked this giveaway on my humble blog. ;) So...now i have TWO chances at what I'm sure will be a a very big comment producing giveaway!!!

Mrs Joyce King said...

Opening up all the windows and airing out the house with fresh spring air...
Then leave the house with my husband and go for ice cream somewhere.

So ready for spring!

btw: great choice on the chocolate cookies, they are my favorite from back home :)

Blessings
Joyce

Chrisy said...

One of our favorite things to do in the spring is to take long walks outside and the boys count how many birds they see, and we look for spring buds on the trees! :) Simple, but when the sun is out and the birds are singing, its easy to enjoy anything!

Sarah Gingrich said...

Throw open all the windows in the house, so that the curtains billow and shake free of their winter droop. Usher in the freshness with bouquets in old blue canning jars. Traipsing about in bare feet in the tender new grass. Hanging up the hammock as a challenge to retreating winter, "You go no further, you frosty dear season, make way for Spring in her flouncy dress!"

This is our first spring here in the deep south. Coming from PA, it's so fun to have day after day be in the 70's-80's. We almost live outside. :) Our doors are open most of the time and we're loving having a new garden, eating outside, and getting lots of exercise time with the kids.

Nichole said...

I love to open up my windows and let the fresh air in. I love to get down in my flower beds/garden and get the soil ready for planting! On those nice warm days notihng is better then a picnic at the park with my kids :)

Jessica said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE to open my doors and windows wide and then take my kiddos outside and play!!

Rebecca Z. said...

So many-- lets start an early one--with opening windows and letting the fresh air IN!

Kae Jo said...

Love taking a little one on a walk! Took Mikaela out a few weeks ago and I didn't hear a peep the whole time as she took in everything. I take Grady (even when it's cold because we have to pick up Katie from the bus stop). When it's nice, we walk all around his development and he points out all of the cars, flowers, and dogs. :) Best part of nice weather for this lady! xoxo

Missy. said...

the first thing i always do is plant pansies...which i did today, might i add. :) clean up the flower beds, plant the garden, walk outside~ in jeans and a long sleeve tee~ and not be cold, open the windows and bask in the warm sunshine. thanks. mk.

Holly said...

I can't wait to take walks with my boyfriend and dog :)

I feel I should not be allowed to enter since I was the lucky winner of your last giveaway {and my family is most grateful that I was...we literally fight over who gets to wrap up in the brown blanket. Daily} BUT..I must weigh in because if I talk about Spring then maybe I won't long for it sooo much. My favorite thing is reading on my swing on the back porch. My least favorite thing is thinking about all the leaves that have settled into the flowerbeds. BUT..in order to enjoy the swing fully, I will need to work on the leaves first.
IT CANNOT COME FAST ENOUGH!

consume me... said...

OH! And I'll be posting your giveaway over on Shop Girl!!!

Shelby said...

The absolute first thing I do is plant pansies in lots of pots on my front porch and put up my spring wreath. I love being outside..... then I also love grilling everything on the grill:)

Sarah said...

What a great give away package ;-) I love taking walks on the conservancy trail near my house with the family and sitting on our deck watching the kids play enjoying the fresh air...

Sarah said...

Also I did "like" you on FB...

I love to walk around Strasburg, take a little extra time getting from one class to the next, or find a quiet shaded spot to write in my jean shorts and tshirt. I'm not a big fan of summer, but spring time, oh it's gorgeous!

Hi Janelle,
My favorite thing to do when it starts getting warm outside is to watch my husband as he turns over the soil in my garden! I love to watch the disk turn that hard calloused soil, making it soft & rich for planting. My fun really begins AFTER this process, when I can apply seeds to that soil, and begin to watch the seeds grow. There is nothing like the feeling I have knowing that I am providing the very best home grown and nutritional foods for my family.
Thanks. Danielle B.

rumble said...

Can hardly wait to get my hands into my flower beds and fling open the windows throughout the house!!

Thanks, R Umble

Def. a little coffee break to the 2 most historical lighthouses in the NATION..The Fulton Landing (Brooklyn Bridge) watching the sailboats come out and/or a 2 hr drive to "the End" (Montauk)-most infamous lighthouse George Washington settled both..Clean, fresh, soothing water & air surrounding the City that Never Sleeps!!<3

Love to take the children out and see them run and play! We were in the south this past weekend and my 3 year old exclaimed to me several times how WARM it was. He was so happy and played outside for hours.

lrstitched said...

I can't wait for warm weather to be able to plant my garden and then lay on a picnic blanket in the backyard and bask in the sunshine!

Michelle said...

There are so many things I do when Spring comes but the very first thing I do on the first warm day is to simply walk out the door and around the house to see which plants are budding and which are poking out of the ground and to slowly savor the warmth of sunshine.

Aimee said...

Just posted about your giveaway on my blog, friend! Have a great day! :)

Nikki said...

Long walks with my husband and boys!

Kelvin said...

I just love to be outside in the fresh air, mowing the grass and digging in the cool, damp flowerbeds. I also can't wait to go barefoot and to not have to bundle the children up to go outside. It's also fun to just be outside and watch the children run around and play.

Mary said...

I love, love to don my gardening gloves and head out to my flower beds at the first hint of spring!

Esther@fleurcottage said...

getting my fingers in the dirt! :) love this giveaway! i'm in OH w/ my sis & am hoping this will give me an edge to win! HA!

Eating dinner with friends on our back deck. (wanna come over?) :) Getting fresh lettuce from the garden. letting the kiddos play outside all day. Work on the tan, watch lightning bugs make a grand show in our backyard....the list could go on and on... :)

What a fun giveaway! Love the crate!! :)

XOXO! MJ

Jess said...

Opening my windows and enjoying the birds singing is one of my most favorite things. Sometimes I do it a little too early in the season, at least that what the kids say! Gets a little chilly in the early evening. What a great giveaway, Thanks!

This is probably the lamest comment you'll get, but I can't wait to not have to get my baby girl all bundled up! It'll be wonderful:)

Colleen said...

My favorite thing to do when it gets warm outside is to sit on my front porch and love my neighbors, I live in a little neighborhood in Baltimore that has the most charming elderly population, they remind me daily what a breath of fresh air we are to each other!

Pure Bliss Management said...

Gonna keep on trying till I win one of these!! :)

Pure Bliss Management said...

Oops- it didn't publish my fav thing to do which is anything outside, preferably with my kiddos :)
And I already "like" you! ;)

milleranna said...

Usually the first thing I do in the springtime when it starts to warm up is go outside and give my front porch a good cleaning, throw away all those pine branches that are still there from Christmas, hang my forsythia wreathe on the door, and walk around my flower beds and dreeeeeeam.......

Our Life Version 4.0 said...

Oh Oops! I forgot I was supposed to tell my favorite warm weather thing to do! Hehe!
My favorite thing to do outside in the Spring time is take a nature walk with my children! I like letting my daughter walk and check out all the things she finds. It will be fun seeing what my son finds interesting now that he's walking.

Anonymous said...

sit outside on my deck and drink my coffee and read a book or journal!!! Oh i cant wait!!!! joannamast@hotmail.com

JenP said...

My favorite thing is taking the kids to the park!!

Jessica Sue said...

I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty :) I CANNOT wait to give our new home some "flava" outside!!

~Rosanne said...

My favorite thing to do is soak up the sun. Finding things to do outside while I am soaking up the sun is no problem either. But a cup of my favorite coffee and a good book and the sunshine is a perfect combo.

Justin & Elizabeth said...

When it gets warm outside I pull out my Grandmother's red and white vintage table cloth and I take it outside in the grass for a picnic with my two sons. Under the warm sun it's easy to imagine her looking down on us from heaven and smiling at the heart to heart conversations I'm having with my 3 year old because she probably remembers having many with me. In some ways I can't wait to meet her in heaven and be able to share a picnic with her and my boys...

Peter and Kim said...

Oh I just LOVE Spring!!! All the flowers poking up their heads, the pink-blossomed trees, spring lambs, baby chicks, the warm(er) breezes through the open windows--I know it's a sickness, but I can't wait until my husband pressure-washes the house so I can wash away all the winter grime from my windows and put in the screens!--swinging on the porch swing, hanging out the laundry again, eating supper on the back deck, longer evenings, sunshine, bike rides. But most of all--EASTER! The newness of life in Christ because of his resurrection with victory over sin and death. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! (And I had three Spring babies--so their birthdays add to my joy of this time of year!)

elaine said...

I would open windows to let fresh spring air in and stale winter air out!Also I'm getting the urge to plant something so maybe I'll plant some pansies........

Janae said...

I just love to get out in the fresh air after being "cooped up" all winter! My daughter wants to get outside as much as I do! My favorite thing is sitting outside with a good book and watching my kids enjoy the great outdoors ;)

Heather Muffley said...

When it's warm, I love to eat breakfast, lunch and/or dinner with Josh & Noah on our side porch!

Janelle,
Love the Spring give away :)
Spring lightens my heart, as winter fades and the sun starts to peek out and shines more and more I get excited and want to clean my whole house, I love to hang my laundry as see it sofly move in the springbreeze..the smell of freshwashed and outside dried linnens is THE BEST thing...the true joy of spring comes to fulfillment when I can dig in the dirt with my two sons and plant some of "their" plants and flowers and some of mine and watch them grow and bloom over the weeks that follow, fruit of their labor ;)
Blessings,
Arenda

I just recently started reading your blog and love it! My favorite part of spring is the lilacs. I always remember my Mom cutting fresh ones and putting them in my room when I was a little girl. Spring is my favorite time of the year!

BungalowGirl said...

the first thing i do is grab my camera and my kids and do a spring photo shoot...nothing better than God's green earth for a backdrop!

mandi said...

My favorite thing to when the weather gets warm is have people over to eat dinner (or lunch!) on our "new" patio. Last year this time Morgan wasn't walking yet, so this year it'll be fun to *explore* outside and chase a crazy toddler all around the yard. :)

I can hardly wait to dig in the dirt and plant our garden - the thought of fresh veggies is really exciting to me! That said, it won't be happening any time soon since we still have a couple of feet of snow in most areas of our yard. :) When some nice days roll around I'll be happy just to get out for a walk with my girlies!

Todd said...

funny! this is really Vickie writing from Todd's account! He OCCASSIONALLY cleans the floors with Mrs. Meyers, but I am the one who loves it!

megan said...

So glad I found your blog....Can't wait to read through it....
My favorite thing to do when it gets warm is to spread the mulch all day and then wait for the ice cream truck that begins its rounds early in the spring!! In all honesty, I think I like the ice cream truck better than the mulch!

megan said...

I also liked your blog on my facebook page :)

mommajoe said...

the first day of spring usually falls on my dad's birthday...he was born on march 20, 1934. so the very first thing i do is call my dad and sing happy birthday!! my grandmother, his mom, used to say that she brought forth new life on the first day of spring. he was her firstborn and on that spring day, there was snow on the ground...a rarity in north alabama. every year my dad tells us the story of his birth and the snow gets deeper with each passing year. we always say that if he lives long enough the snow will be 10 feet deep:) we are already up to about 6 feet:) so every first day of spring i am so thankful to God for giving me a wonderful dad! and i am truly blessed to still have him with me! thank you Jesus for another spring day with my dad!

Dear Janelle,
You are so very generous and creative!! Each item well chosen and put together with care...
95 FLIPPIN' comments!!! I just know how much fun you are having with this give away!! I love it!!

With the first hint of Spring, I love to walk around outside in my gardens, checking for green shoots of new growth!
I love visiting our local greenhouses and coming home with a load of colorful flowers.
And filling my planters and pots with these beauties for our big wraparound porch!
Planning and planting our vegtable garden!
Watching for new baby lambs in the pastures along road!
Hanging my laundry out to dry in the fresh breeze!
Wow.... so many wonderful things that come with the newness of springtime!!!!
Blessings.... Anne Fisher

What beautiful weather we have for the first day of Spring. I hung wash outside, rake debris from my flower beds, opened up the bedroom windows to let the fresh air in, and wore a short sleeve shirt for the first time in months! Welcome Spring!

Mindi Bruckhart said...

When it finally gets nice outside, one of my favorite things to do is work in the flowerbeds!!

I love Spring! Sitting in the green grass, the smell of earth, the way the air smells. I can't wait for campfires with friends and clipping fresh cut flowers to fill my house with their beauty.
