  3. Congratulations to the winners....and cornbread salad sounds yummy!!!

    I think I am going to have to enter on Monday. I can just picture that apron!!! ;) And the cookbook is sure to be a winner!

    My followers are gone today, also. Seems like it is something new everyday with blogspot. It is really getting strange.

    Hope you have a moment to go over and stand in agreement on today's prayer & fasting post.

    We are a little cooler too! It is indeed a blessing!


  4. Oh, congratas to the two lovely winners of the Create & Decorate magazine :) :) Linda, when you talked about this magazine quite a few months ago, I subscribed. It's such a great magazine, full of cuteness, and worth every penny :) :)

    It's still really overcast outside. It looks like it will rain. It might rain tonight. Right now it's just really warm and really muggy/sticky :) :) Still it's nice...I love it :) :)

    Oh, yes, I lost my followers yesterday. My caption is still on my blog, but the followers photos are gone. Also when I click on my blogger dashboard, it still tells me how many followers I have...however, when I click to view the photos...again, nothing. It's just a blank page. I'm not sure why...but I hope Blogger fixes it soon.

    Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  5. Congratulations to the winner. Can I enter on the giveaway from Monday???? I love the gooseberry's cookbook and your apron!!!!!!!!Waouh!!!!
    Blessings from France

    You are all so nice to congratulate the winners.....they haven't written me back yet.......sooooo I am just waiting to see what they say. Heart you ladies......going out to plant my tomatoes. You heard me right. It has been to cold or to hot. Today is just right!!!!!

    Hugs, me

  8. Linda, I am traveling with my husband to our State Assoc. meeting for our church and we checked in at out hotel. I thought that I would check out Facebook and saw where you had posted that the winners had been chosen. Whoo Hoo! I was one of the winners! Thank you so much!! Thanks especially for the Americana ornie that you made and also for promoting my new blog...I appreciate what you've done and you are such a special lady!

  9. Congratulations to the winners and the flag looks great! Have a wonderful weekend :)

  10. Hi Dear Linda
    I'm enjoying a long overdue visit here - sorry it's been so long - life has been busy lately, but now it's Saturday morning, so we have no school to do, nowhere to go & nothing to plan, so I can spend the day cleaning (we have a mouse plague at the moment so it really needs a good cleaning). Congratulations to the winners of your beautiful giveaway. I will be praying for your farmers - we know exactly how frustrating drought can be. How is the adoptions going for Vitaliy going? I've been praying....
    I hope you have a wonderful day & weekend.

  11. Yes, blogger has been having some issues the last few weeks. Yes, I noticed the followers were missing; however, I believe they are back now. Can't wait for the giveaway to start on Monday. Thanks for the heads up.

  12. Congratulations to the lucky ladies! What a sweet prize to win :) Can't wait to see the next party, Linda :D Hope everyone has a pleasant weekend. Pray for rain!
