Friday's Finds: {no.1/10} ...and Blessed ~ Giveaway!

It's another start of a New Year - and it's Friday!!  Friday's Finds needs a face lift.  Orginally I had hoped to use this posting as a way of integrating my vintage/antique/tag sale finds, etc.  And I think that, that will still happen for the most part.  This was my all time favorite Friday's Find... posted about right here.

I know I've slipped in a few other FIND's along the way, last year, such as a new recipe, an idea, an activity or well, Scott even included me as one of his Finds (you can read here).  Which was okay, and that might happen again this year, too, on occasion.  But I am really hoping to dig deep into these fun Friday's Finds (and I have so many to share) that I'm asking you to hold me to this.   And I would love to hear your stories as well.

So, this post, in all honesty was intended to be a refresher on what Friday's Finds are all about and what it's true intentions are to be.  Looking forward to more Friday's Finds with you all through out the year.


Now, about this giveaway.  Yes! it's still on till 8pm (EST) tonight.  I love having some *new* names...in the running.  Thanks for all your entries, so far.   Tell your friends - quick!- and yes, you can Face Book about it to gain another entry (Rachel G.)... just let me know if you did that.  PLEASE!!  I hardly ever check FB anymore these days. 

The winning entry will be revealed on Monday Morning (since I don't usually do any postings over the weekend)!!!!  I'll probably let Caleb do the draw again.  He had fun with that last time.  Blessings to all....

Have a great weekend.  Keep those entries coming! 


I want to let you in on a little HONEST secret.  I love this bag, a lot!  I like it so much that I can hardly even look at it...knowing that I'll be parting with it soon.  It's almost funny... how when you put so much time and effort into making a bag feel so special and giving it, its sense of personality and sense of style, that it sort of becomes part of you.  Just know that you will be getting more then a bag - your being BLESSED with Creative Usage! ~ From my hand to yours.


  1. I feel that way about my handwovens sometimes, too. I like them so much it's hard to give them away. But a little part of us is being shared with a friend and hopefully they'll smile and think of us when they use it.
    Have a Blessed weekend! ;-)

  2. Oh Bevy throw my name in the hat. Thanks for letting me know:)

  3. Hi Bev, dear -greetings from SNOWY Tennessee!
    I can't wait to see you in the spring.... please consider this my entry for your bag give away.

    I reeeaaallly adore that J.O.Y. one that you made. You know me and red :)
    LOVE and hugs to all!

  4. Hi,

    I'm a new reader!! I came over after reading your comment at my friend Peggy's blog (The Simple Woman). If it's not too late I'd like to be entered in the giveaway. The bag is lovely!! I haven't been blogging lately so I didn't post about the giveaway there, but I like what I'm reading here so far so I did become a follower. I noticed from your list of favorite blogs that we have many in common, including "beauty that moves", a fellow gal from Connecticut that I had the pleasure of meeting this summer at our farmer's market.




Thanks for coming by, today! You're visits always mean so much...
