Easter Goodie Giveaway

Well, my house is back in order now that the holidays are over.....well, at least somewhat, we cant count the kids room since that is a never ending battle.  My daughter keeps her room pretty neat, but the boys rooms is a whole other story.  It seems like the messier it is the better they like it, and when they cant find something they come and ask ME!!  So I tell them to clean their room and they may find it, but that doesnt work, its just makes it worse since they tear it up even more looking for whatever they lost.  Oh Well, hopefully they will get out of that stage. 

Okay, see that picture of the boxes up there.  I am going to do a giveaway for one of them.  You get to choose which one you would like.  I am new to blogging, but have been reading everyone elses blogs for about a year.  I know its a little early for Easter, but I dont really have any Valentine crafts so you will get a jump start on your Easter decorating.  Just leave a comment and I will put all the names in box and have one of my kids do the drawing on Friday night.  The boxes are something I had not made before but this summer at a yard sale I got a whole box of Easter and Christmas miniatures, paper boxes (from little to REALLY BIG ones), ribbon  and a bunch of other goodies in there for $5.  So I thought I would try my hand at decorating them.  If you would like a closer look at them, go to my flickr link and I have the individual pictures there.

Paper Mache Vintage Style Gift Bucket Vintage Greeting Card Dutch Girl

Isnt this the cutest bucket, I got this from a shop on etsy called Saturdayfinds.  I love the little wooden shoes tied to the handle.  I have her blog listed so you can click on that to get to her shop since I havent quite figured out how to insert links yet.  She has some adorable vintage Valentine Pockets listed right now, I cant wait to see what she does for Easter.

Well it is a nice day here and the kids want to take the dog for a walk.  We have a year old black lab who can never, and I mean NEVER get enough exercise.  The more we wear him out the better. Tomorrow is 25% the whole store at the thrift store tomorrow so if I get some treasures I will post them.  Have a good week!!
