Birthday Giveaway

Today is my 50 Something Birthday! Closer to 60 than 50.  How did that happen?
I have received many Happy Birthday wishes from family and friends.
I have already celebrated with a wonderful dinner prepared by my family,
ham, potatoes, salad and rolls followed by these wonderful cupcakes.
I have been blessed.

I began blogging two years ago in March and I have enjoyed the experience so much.
I have won several giveaways, "met" many wonderful people and learned many new things. 
 I decide it was time to have my own giveaway to celebrate two years of blogging and the many blessings in my life every day.

The design on the pillow is one of the blocks Michelle May of The Raspberry Rabbits designed for her 2010 Block of the Month.  I had fun adding vintage lace and the linen flower.

If you would like a chance to win this pillow, just leave a comment and I will choose a winner one week from today on my brother and sister's birthday April 11thIf you mention this giveaway on your blog come back and leave another comment for another chance to win.
