Pay It Forward. . .

Hello everyone, you may remember that about a month ago Nancy from At Nanns Table was paying it forward and gave me this darling tea cup filled with a beautiful petunia and basil and some herbal tea.

Every since then I have been trying my best to pay it forward.  Doing simple things like, letting someone go in front of me in line, letting cars in while driving, and being friendlier to strangers.

I had yet to pay it forward to a fellow blogger.  I thought who better than my cute neighbor, Ammie.

She did not know that I was coming over and look, she dressed for the occasion. Wearing one of my favorite colors. Did you notice she matches her door? lol!

This is her cute house.  They repainted it and the door last Fall.  Ammie did a lot of the work herself.  She called me over to help pick the door color.  She had narrowed it down to blues but just wanted a little help.  Doesn’t it look cozy?

Her blog is Green Thumb and Thimble  We both have a passion for gardening and quilting.  I would love for you to hop over and give her a visit.

She is a young mother of 3 darling children, with #4 arriving in September.  Her boys are so cute.  They often ride their bikes over to my house.  They always say, “Jann, your yard is so pretty”.  Mannerly boys wouldn’t you say?

This is her sweet family, Dean, Ammie, Gracie (love her curly hair), and Wyatt.

She is holding the ladybug feeder and birdseed that I gave her.  It will be so cute hanging from her large tree.  Look at her hostas in the background.

Miss ‘Green Thumb’ for sure!

Thanks Nancy for giving me this opportunity to ‘Pay it Forward’.  Something I should be doing every day.  But sometimes I don’t always remember.

I hope you will stop and take the time to ‘Pay it ‘Forward’ to somebody today.

Hugs,

Jann

p.s.  If you haven’t linked up to ‘Share Your Cup’ I would love to have you join us.  Just scroll down to the previous post.

I have been trying to always pay it forward ever since watching the movie with the name years ago.

Thanks for making me and my yard look good. You have been a wonderful neighbour. We are so lucky. The kids and I hung the cute bird feeder you gave us. I think that the kids waited almost an hour for the birds to come. I will be on the hunt on a way to pay it forward. Thanks Ammie

LOVED that you played it forward to Amy. She is such a darling girl.I had forgotten she had a blog. The bird feeder would be perfect in her yard. I know the kids must love it too. GOOD JOB!!!
