Final Days of Give Away sign up

Hey ya'll isn't this give away fun! Just a couple more days but I thought I would post a few more pictures of the treasures available for the $50 giveaway. I wish I had gotten Doug to take pictures of jewelry but forgot. He added some things today..... Next to that angel it s bunny rabbit tree topper, that bunny is just too cute. I know a lot of people do the year round trees.
This is a way cool bar set, brand new never used. Very good quality.

OK, I had to do this. Doug bought me this little guy. He is not in the giveaway. Isn't he the cutest thing ever?

Several people mentioned silver plate.

A different view

Are these bunnies darling?

Doug loves these gals. I admit whoever painted them had a talent with eyes! They have incredible eyes.

Another view of goodies. Those picture frames are awesome.

Some more stuff

That house picture is hand carved. Up close and personal it is amazing that someone could do that.

Lots of folks mentioned the fork and spoon. It is ceramic not wooden. I think it was like $8.25. He has great prices.

The glasses in this pic are from that place O'brien's (?) in New Orleans. Would that be cute for St. Patrick's day?

That bunny is cute. It is like a table top welcome sign.

Well keep entering. This has turned out to be such a fun activity. It is the first time I have been there in a while. He did not get pictures of Pfaltzgraff sets, or any of the other dinnerware. He has sorta turned into a dishaholic himself.....hmmmm.
All you have to do is leave a comment about anything. This is really fun. Doug has been getting ready to leave. Getting physicals, shots, and telling me about oil in the truck...dog food, fuses in the heat pump...He has to cut the grass before he leaves.....are you kidding me? We are both a bundle of nerves.
Thank you for stopping in!

  11. Hi Jeanette,
    Thank you sweet lady for your kind visit! You are a doll and you are always welcome anytime.

    What gorgeous treasures here. So pretty!
    I just ordered a new Pflatzgraff set of dishes yesterday. They are called Napoli. I'll do a post on them when they arrive.

    Have a blessed week. ~Melissa :)

  12. Jeanette,
    I keep you all in prayers as the days are winding down for Doug's departure. How are the plans for all your big events coming along?
    Dee Dee
    Tell Doug- he has great things!

  13. I can only imagine the excitement (and concern too) about Doug's departure. We're all pulling for you two so that everything turns out fine! Blessings and Hugs, Coralie

  14. I'm doing my first giveaway today and it is fun seeing all the comments come in.

    Make sure he shows you how to turn the water off at the master faucet. I had a pipe come loose under a kitchen sink once...out of blue, no reason, and the amount of water that shot out before I could get hubby home a few blocks to turn it off. Scary.


  15. Great blog! Just happened upon your blog and thought I'd see what my fellow southerners are blogging about. Looking forward to reading more in the future!

  16. Love this giveaway - and YOU too.

  17. What a great giveaway!!! I am glad I dropped by.

  18. Good stuff...found you on Tip Junkie...and I'm sure glad I did! Thanks for the opportunity!


  19. Thank you for including the link to this post of your booth. Isn't it so fun hunting for things to sell! I worked at the store where my booth is today and rearranged as I had sold a piece of furniture that needed to be moved out. THings never stay the same way for long!


  20. thanks for all the great pictures. Love looking at what others do with their space. We are getting our first group of things ready to set next week. I think this will be the biggest chore bringing in the first load to fill the space.

    Thanks for stopping by I was glad to post the giveaway on my blog.
