Happy Spring Give Away

It is not quite Spring just yet but I have a little giveaway on my blog today to think Spring!

While I am in limbo with getting ready to sell and move and buy another cottage,  I probably will not have a lot to blog about for a little while.  So please be patient with me.  

When I get this place sold and buy a new cottage I will probably have lots of before and after posts like we did with this cottage purchase.

In the meantime I am still visiting your sweet blogs and enjoying your friendships.

As Lent has begun and Easter is just around the corner,  I went to JoAnn Fabric and Crafts to see what kind of cute Spring and Easter things they were bringing out.

I found some really sweet tote bags.  


Thought these would make for a perfect little giveaway gift to say thank you to all of you sweet blogging friends.

Everyone needs a new Spring tote!  

 I picked up a few and would love for each of you to have a chance at one.

Just a sweet little tote for bringing home found treasures on shopping trips.

All you have to do is just leave me a message below saying you would like a chance at one of these.  That's It!  Easy Peasy.

If you are a no reply blogger or do not have a blog please leave me your email so I can contact you if you win.

Thanks so much.
Cannot wait to say good bye to Winter and Hello to Spring.

Wish me luck as we put this cottage on the market and then begin the new journey of finding a new cottage to call home.

Have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend.
Kris

  4. Who wouldn't want to have one of those? Thought it was Lovely. Guess there'll be a lot of work at the "new" house too and I long to see how you will change that house into "your" house. But you still have to find one, lol.
    Have a great day.
    Love Elzie

  28. Hi Kris! Super cute giveaway. I am ready for spring to come as well, especially with the tease of warm weather lately. I have won a giveaway from you in the past, so I am not throwing my name in this time! I am looking forward to hearing about your hone sale, New home search and eventually new home. Have a great weekend! Are you going to any of the stores participating in the Vintage Shop Hop? I am off today and planning on checking out one in Barrington.There are so many on the list, but I only have time for a few.

  29. Spring is early here but I'm glad. Our winter was a real dud so I'm ready to move on. I mean if it's going to be warm, let's have green growing stuff!
    Love the pretty tote! I'd adore one. Thank you for the chance to win!
    Wishing you the best as you prepare to move.

  32. I am really looking forward to Spring, with all of the beautiful bulbs in flower, and I would love to win one of your gorgeous tote bags! It would not only lift my mood, but would be perfect for some of my crafting items, when I need to take them with me places.
    I hope that your cottage hunting and selling goes smoothly for you, as you both deserve it. I have loved watching all the changes you have made to your current home, plus enjoyed seeing some of your previous home, as I found your blog part way through that one.

    Ooh - just something to share with you all - I saw an idea about what to do for Lent and instead of trying to stop having something - instead get a bag and each day put something in it that you don't wear anymore. Then at the end donate it to a shelter or somewhere that provides clothing for people in need. I have just put in my 3rd item today, it is such a good feeling - not only do you help people, you also sort out your things too!

    Hugs, Gilly

    1. Hi Gilly,
      What a great idea on the putting something each day into a bag for someone in need. I agree that Lent should be about not giving up but giving forward. Good luck in the giveaway. If you come back to read this please leave me an email so if your name is picked in the giveaway I have a way to contact you. Have a great weekend.

  36. Hi Kris, I was ready for Spring on December 21st, lol. Does that tell you how much a hate Winter? When we retire I really need to move and live somewhere that has no winter season and where I can wear flip flops all year round.🌞 I can't wait to see what you do in your new home. I'm sure it'll be just as beautiful and magical as this home. What a pretty bag, thanks for the chance to win some prettiness.

  37. What a cute tote! I would like to have one...such a sweet giveaway. It would certainly brighten up your day and bring a smile to your face. Even tho the winter has been mild in a lot of places, we all seem to be hankering for Spring. Some of my crocus came up and it's turned very cold again. The sun is shining today and that's a definite blessing. How is the knee? Good luck with the listing and search...xoxo

  38. I wish and hope your pretty white cottage sells very quick. Then you can start painting the next cottage white and Cooper can get use to his new home also. I'm sure as long as he is with you all is well with him.
    Of course we all need a new spring shopping tote. I need one for my next trip to New York City

    Happy Hunting on finding your new home

  48. Hello Kris,
    Thank you for the chance to win such a fun Spring Tote!
    Sending you a big Hug as you continue on the journey. I have been praying that Terry is happy and things are going well for him. Also for you, that packing up and finding a new nest will not take too much time. You will be creating and decorating again soon.

  51. Can you tell we all love give-aways! I've enjoyed reading all the comments.. and would of course, love one of those darling totes. They are so cheerful.. I need an uplift this time of year. I hope your hubby is looking forward to all that painting again when you move! and all the wonderful projects and transformations he makes. I look so forward to seeing more... but know the actual move will not be so fun. I hope you can keep all of your treasures that you have now, and not have to part with any of them. The "cottage hunting" will be fun, so please show us what you look at and the choices you narrow it down to.. or maybe you will instantly just fall in love with one! Happy Friday!
