June and July... Give-Aways!

July has come... and will all-too-quickly be gone!
We've been away for a week; visiting
Lancaster County and then Vermont...
We also had our grandsons, both daughters (and wonder-dog Stella)
with us back in mid-July... catching fireflies in the evening
and taking none-stop day trips all week long!
We're home... for a while! 

Well... as promised, this month we are posting two-give-aways:
One for June and one for July!

Here is the June Give-Away... 
a stash of vintage photos,
some rusty old keys, stamps, craft tags, and
other fun embellishments for your use!

Here is the July Give-Away...
a vintage book, some old keys, craft tags,
ivory game board pieces, a vintage
little leather book, a small cigar box, and other
fun embellishments!

Please leave a note on this post... if you wish to be in the drawing.
(if you have a preference: June or July Give-Away... so note it!)

Well Wishes and Blessings... Daryle & Katie

Out of the Dark... After the Storm!

It's one of my favorite lines from the 1939 movie: "The Wizard of Oz!"

"The wind began to switch - the house to pitch 
and suddenly the hinges started to unhitch.
Just then the Witch - to satisfy an itch 
went flying on her broomstick, 
thumbing for a hitch."

Well... apart from the witch; that pretty much sums up our past 
week, here in parts of South Jersey!  A storm hit last Tuesday, 
just about this time of the day, and we were without power until Saturday!  Thank the Lord... we, our neighbors, and our friends are just fine!

But in all the flurry of activity 
(not too mention the loss of electricity!)... 
I wasn't able to post a June Give-Away!  
Not to fear... I hope to pull something together in the next week 
for a combined June-July Give-Away!

In the meanwhile... look at the fruit on our newly acquired Fig tree!  
I could hardly believe my eyes when I spotted it last week... 
It survived the wind and the rain, just potted up on our back patio!  
Be blessed! Daryle (and Katie too!)
