Isn't Blogging Fun


Blogging has been so much fun in the last few months.I am totally addicted. I have made so many great friends. Even though we have never met face to face I feel a kindred spirit with so many of you. The other great part of blogging is the giveaways. I did not know about these until I started blogging. The best part of all is winning some of the giveaways.

Tuesday I found out that I won two giveaways! Yay! One was from Debbie at Love the Decor. That one was for a $60 gift certificate to CSN that has been all over blog land. I even sponsored one just like it a few weeks ago. Mr. Savvy said that I am spending money to do this blog and now I have actually earned some to shop with.

I ordered the La Rochere seven piece iced tea set with the iconic bee motif.
These are perfect here in the hot south. We drink lots of iced tea.
I already have the juice glasses that I found at Marshall's last year.
We have been breaking a few of my other glasses lately so this will give me a nice set and these are thick glassed and not so easy to break.

The other one I won was from Kristi at The Thrifty Gypsy. It is this wonderful Cottage Gardens
magazine that I do not have. I am looking forward to checking out these wonderful gardens.

A couple of my blog friends are having giveaways you don't want to miss.

Kat, at Low Tide High Style is giving away this painting by Trish at The Old Post Road blog.
This giveaway runs until midnight on Monday June 28th.
All her paintings are great.

Rene at Cottage and Vine is having a giveaway for a $40 gift certificate to
This runs to Monday June 28th, too.

I found another CSN giveaway for another $40 gift certificate at The Virgina House
This one ends at 12 a.m. on the 28th.

Sue at I Need Mom is having a $50 gift certificate giveaway to CSN.
 Better hurry though it ends tonight!

I found another great giveaway that just started over at Greige Design. It is a wonderful recycled canvas purse from My Sparrow.

Be sure and head on over to these blogs and sign up for the giveaways. We can all use free stuff!!

  6. You are ONE lucky woman! Love the bee glasses too.
    Thanks for your comment today. I seem to not get many comments so am discouraged by that. such is blog land.
    We live in a condo on a small lake. We gave up a big house/big yard about 4 yrs ago, sometimes we're sorry and most of the time not. We do enjoy the lake and all the activity we see there.
    Take care.

  10. Congrats, I keep trying, just like the lotto and never win. Actually, I did win $9.00 on lotto tickets. I turned a pile in that I have had for months!

  11. Kim,
    I feel the same way you do. I feel like I have a whole new group of girlfriends. I am always anxious to see what all of you are up to. What a great world to be a part of. It is hard to explain how you feel close to someone you have never even met? I do feel blessed, tho to know so many nice people because of my little blog.

  12. Hi Kim,
    I love a good giveaway, especially when I win! Well, it doesn't happen often, but still!! Congrats on your great prizes. I love getting new glassware. It's so nice to have ones that aren't etched from the dishwasher!!
    BTW - wish you really could fly out for some dinner on the deck with me - I believe we would have a grand time with more talking than eating!! Hope it cools down there soon!

  26. I also love blogging! I have not encountered any discourteous posts or interactions. In point of fact, it is my experience that most of the people who blog are very pleasant and supportive. Blogging has been a very positive experience for me. By the way, Kim, congrats on your give-away wins.

  27. Kim, I'm doing a bit of catch-up this afternoon, so just now seeing this one. Totally agree, Blogging Is Fun!. I've won some fabulous giveaways, but for me the real win is all the friendships that have spawned within the world of blogs. I enjoy meeting friends across the country and beyond. :-)

  28. Kim, Congrats on your wins! I would have chosen the same glasses if I had won. I love the bee design. Blogging is addictive and the best part for me is the friends I have made...which includes yourself.
