Giveaway! Stop And Smell The Flowers

Hello Everyone!
I'm back with a giveaway to celebrate my newest blog design from Jenn.
I hope you like it. I think she did a wonderful job and I couldn't be more pleased.
Feel free to look around and to grab my newest blog button to display.
~*~
Who loves to shop? I do! How about a gift card giveway to one of my favorite
home stores Marshalls. It's also good at TJ Maxx and Home Goods. Canada as well.
In this giveaway you will win a $50 gift card and a sweet coffee mug for the summer.
I think we could all use a reminder to slow down from the fast pace of life sometimes. 
 How cute is this mug!
1. To enter you must be a follower of this blog.
I would like to get to know you better so please join me.
2. Leave a comment and that is it. You are in!
~*~
Good luck to all of you! I will announce the winner next Thursday.
Stay tuned for decorating posts, weight loss updates and more.

Hi Melissa

I've been MIA for the last several months going through our move, but I'm finally back full time. I've had fun this afternoon playing "catch up".

I'd love to win the gift card. I still need a few pieces to finish off several rooms and the gift card would really help. It would make for a good blog post too. wink wink

Hugs,
Kat
