Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner


This is the yard stake Shaleace won. Attached is a pkt. of Sweet Peas for her to plant and grow up it. If you look close, you can see there is a bird on it. I've kindof had a bird fettish for the last 3 years. It all started when I bought my large N E S T letters.


My Aunt Viola, (right) hard at work doing dishes. Did you notice, aprons and pearls. You've got to love it! I remember her always wearing an apron. My cousin Betty has given me a few of hers. In fact, I think this may be one I had in the playhouse. Going to have to check that out. I haven't been able to find a pic of my mom or mother-in-law in an apron. I love old aprons. Whenever I see them at yard sales or antique stores, unless they are too pricey, I have to pick them up.


The next give -away will be an apron. Pink roses on a brown background, sweet combination. I'm sure it will look much cuter on you! Just have to ask, "Does this apron make my belly, I mean butt, look fat?" My original post said, "You can definately tell that I had removed my bra for the nite. Those puppies don't stand up and bark like they use to." After getting a few astonished comments from fam I deleted it. I thought about it and oh, what the heck If we can't laugh at ourselves getting older then we're just too darn old to have fun. So I reposted it and am saying, this is who I am. A bit of a jokster now and then if I embarass you I'm sorry!



It's never too late to be a winner! My neice Shaleace was the last comment on my Luck of the Irish post and it was her name that was drawn out. Shortly after I decided to do a give away I new exactly what it would be. I have been told that you should plant your Sweet Peas on St. Patty's day. J.F.Y.I. you can replant them in May for Aug. blooms. These are among my favorites that I have to plant every year. I had picked up a cute weathervane yard stake so I decided to give it away with a package of Sweet Peas for the winner to plant them to grow up it. Shaleace has a large yard and loves to plant flowers so I am sure that she will enjoy her winnings. I wanted to post a pic of it with the winner, but she lives in Mendon, near Logan, so it'll be a week or so till I get it to her. Till then, I will post a pic of just it. I will be doing a give-away in May in remembrance of my sweet mother, mother-in-law, and Aunts who all wore aprons from time to time. It's a cute little pink and brown number. I will be doing the drawing on Mothers Day. If you leave a comment anytime between now and then you will be included in the drawing. Remember, if at first you don't succeed-try, try, again!

Off to buy that corned beef for a green dinner and then going to plant my Sweet Peas. I soaked them over nite for faster sprouting.

Oh, I am so lucky!!!! Thanks Auntie Jann!!!! can you still plant sweet peas in Cache Valley on St. Patty's Day?

Peg said...

ok Jann I am still laughing my butt off about what you said about your puppies not standing up and barking like they use to. A slight problem that most of us over fifty share. Love the apron and the too.

Hey Jan I don't know if I'm entering to late into the apron contest but just in case here's my name for your consideration. Also i was at an antique store the other day just browsing for the fun of it. And I found the crown jewel of Sienna's new room, an old time school desk the kind that you store your books under i am in love with it. Sorry I know this comment is like ten miles long but I thought if anyone would be as excited as me about my find it would be you.
