Garden Fresh and a Winner


Happy Friday!  A big thank you to everyone who participated in my giveaway!!  In keeping with my whole Winter pick-me-up theme, I thought I would share with you a few more pictures of the Fresh from the Garden shoot I did for Belle Inspiration emagazine last Summer.  As all of my seed catalogs continue to arrive in my mailbox almost daily, I am dreaming of warmer weather and spending time in my garden {as I write this it is -7 degrees here}...

















***The winner, chosen using Random Number Generator, of my Winter pick-me-up giveaway is Allison {listed under the link ESM on your comment}.  Congratulations!  You left your email address on your comment, so I will contact you for your address!***


Stay warm my friends!!!  I hope to have at least a sneak peek for you on Monday of the new family room...

Everything looks absolutely beautiful, Tracie! I've been longing for Spring, too, but feel bad now learning that there are so many out there with below 0 temps... brrr, brrr, brrr... that's COLD! As always, I LOVE all of your antique grain sacks and all of your beautiful fresh flowers... just gorgeous!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Tracey, I love your photos, they really give me lots of inspiration (which I need in this rental)...especially seeing I have some very similar bits and pieces. Have been on the lookout for franc plates, just love them...heading home to Australia for a visit soon so I know when I get back to chilly England I will be champing at the bit to 'spring' into action around this house!

Sarah at myyellowhouse said...

Tracey,
me again...I just ordered the J.D'arc mag from your shop and can't tell if it went through...I had to use two different email addresses. And, for some reason I'm not able to email you directly?
It's a wonder I can maintain a blog, really.
Just thought if you had a chance, you could check on it and let me know. Thanks!
Sarah

Those beautiful photos have me already thinking Spring and Summer! We're Blessed here in the Desert that this time of year are the ideal temps... come Spring and Summer it actually starts to get REALLY HOT... so I can actually get into a Spring vibe early when it is just warm enough to be absolutely glorious!
