~"Time for a Giveaway"~
&
~a Pay it Forward~


I took this photo of these amazing hydrangeas when we visited Crook, County Durham, England three years ago.


MARY at ACROSS THE POND
is having a giveaway in honor of her first year as a blogger.


Lovely gifts they are. You will see when you visit her and leave a comment on her giveaway post. Good luck to all! Even if you don't win the giveaway, you will enjoy her words and talent as a blogger, decorator and storyteller.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




I have decided to take part in ALICE'S
Pay it Forward
.
Any blogger is invited to participate.

If you would like to Pay it Forward - The first three people to leave a comment on this post saying they'd like to participate will receive a gift from me (Deborah) in the next 365 days. The only condition is that those people will have to do the same on their blogs. Pay it Forward! Don't forget to specifically mention in your comment that you want to do this too.

Deborah, would you email me your address please. I'm sure I had it on the package I received from you but I'm so fussy about privacy that I didn't keep it.

I'm so excited about paying it forward. I've begun to collect a few things and awaiting others to arrive from my favorite places. I'm so glad you're participating!

Deborah, your awesome comment is so appreciated - thanks so much.
Hope all is well with you and the family.
SuzAnna's will be expanding this Spring - any time you want to meet there (or anywhere else) give me a call. When I'm through with the room makeover you must come over for a cuppa! (I'm skipping this Pay it Forward for the time being).
Hi from Bob too.
Hugs - Mary.

Hi Deborah, OOPS--I apologize for using your photo, I thought it went with the pay it forward. I will remove it from my site. I realized it didn't go with the pay it forward when I went back & read it again.

Hi Deborah, I too only have 2 participants for pay it forward, but I will go ahead and play. I'm sure someone will want to join. I know what you mean about mailing out things now, I would also get side-tracked & forget. I hope you have a great visit with your daughter. I will get to see my daughter this weekend, we are going to Austin (that's where she lives). It is also my youngest grandson's birthday, he will be 9yrs. on sunday. Can't wait, it will be fun. Have a great trip! Hugs***Renea
