  18. Cool necklace and earrings. I love them. I like green leaves and plants so my 3 favorite ones are those up there that have the green leaves(not sure what to call each picture didn't see a name). I became a fan of your blog. Visited via SITS. Have a great Monday.

  21. What a great giveaway! I love all your pictures of flowers...it's hard to choose just three!

  22. Hope you're enjoying your vacation (which of course you are!). I'm obviously biased but I'd pick the super cute one you took of B and I peeking into the greenhouse. Its one of my favs and I just so happened to change it to my profile pic on FB earlier today. My other 2 favs of yours are the sweet light swoopy one and the rainbow of buttons.

  23. First off, congrats on spending a whole year in the blogosphere! I love snaps of "found" art. Anything you'd pick would be great with me. PS: SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did...
