Blog Giveaway At Shabbyfufu

I hope that you had a great weekend ladies! I am betting that more of you have been outside enjoying a weather warm up, and not inside on the computer as much! Of course being in tropical Miami, it's the complete opposite here. Once the dreaded summer weather sets in (too soon!) it will be 100% humidity and 100 degrees and will make me want air conditioning at least 100 % of the time! Seriously it's been a beautiful winter weatherwise, and I have been enjoying the outdoors immensely. This morning Mr. Fufu and I went on a 4 mile jog/walk down to the bay that spills into the ocean, went out to our local breakfast place (where we know the waitresses by name:-), and then grocery shopping....life is good on days like this!

Before I tell you about the giveaway, I received a gorgeous gift the other day from my
dear friend Gail McCormack over in Australia. I LOVE this bracelet.....it's actually made from real dried Australia roses~imagine that!! Gail is one of the most thoughtful people and an amazing painter. I hope that you can pop over (click on her name) to her website and see what she has been up to lately. Here it is....excuse my scrawny wrist~lol!


Gratefully published once again, this time one of our NIGHTEAS is in the new edition of Tea Time Magazine under their Favorites. For those not familiar with Tea Time, it's put out by the same company as the new Victoria Magazine and Southern Lady Magazine and is beautifully done~not just for tea lovers!


In celebration of our press, we are having a giveaway on the blog for one of our Shabbyfufu Nighteas! Just leave a comment on this post and a name will be drawn by a Random Number Generator next weekend with no purchase necessary. No anonymous posts unless you tell me how to get in touch with you. I might add that due to electrical currents being different overseas, the Nighteas will not work in some countries, so keep that in mind. Thanks to all who are reading this, whether you post comments or not......

Have a wonderful week ahead!
XOXO~
Janet

Gail McCormack said...

Congratulations on the Nighteas publication in the Tea Time magazine! well deserved as the idea was certainly a very "Shabbyfuf" creative unique one. I loved the sound of your jog/walk, I liked the breakfast eating out even more!
I'm glad you liked your Aussie bracelet, it was just a little gift from over the otherside of the world to hopefully make you smile, as for your scrawny wrist, I must have one to as it fitted me!

Joy said...

Hi Janet,
What a nice thing for you to do (which doesn't surprise me one bit).

The bracelet from Gail is lovely, what a lucky lady you are sweets.

I'm enjoying the weather here too, soon the dry, hot heat will be here and I'll wilt. But for now, we've got beautiful mild sunshine, yay!

Oh yes, and I'm going to try to find that Tea Time Magazine, going to a town that has a fantastic bookstore this weekend and lots of mags, so maybe they'll have it (finger's crossed!).
Happy Night!
xo~Tracie

Tracie said...

You made more changes to your blog design - I love it! Just had to add a little more (you know me...).
Always a thing of beauty whatever you do.
