Grow Your Blog Party

What a great idea for a blog party!  And this is me!  (this photo was taken 1-17-2013)
I am Michele
 Below are some of my favorite things from some of my favorite posts at Something Special.  And I have Something special that I would like to give away to some lucky blogger. . . .It will be revealed farther on down.  
                                     My antique baby shoe collection in my studio
My collection of old shakers which house micro-beads, glass glitter and more 
some of my shabby jewelry
Some ornaments I made at Christmas.  
I framed this antique Valentine card a couple of years ago!
 A Valentine's Day Decoration.
 A sweet patchwork pillow
One of my favorite layouts that I have ever done.  This is one of my granddaughters at age 4.  She is 10 now!
I love paper projects.  I had to keep him, as he was my first paper mache snowman!

And now for the giveaway. . . . . . . . .
This lovely Vintage French inspired pillow, handmade by me.  All you have to do to win this is 
to comment on this post and make sure you are a follower on my blog, and please let me know that you are, in the comment.  Thanks, and I look forward to visiting your blogs as well in this great little party!

Hi Michele, I love that Create collage and all the shakers lined up. So pretty! Everything you create is just gorgeous. I think I've been following you for a while, but for some reason, not all blogs show up in my dashboard. Blogger has lots of kinks we don't even know about, that's for sure. Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy

Hi! I sent you an email yesterday afternoon to join your valentine box swap and when I checked my email this morning I had a notice that my email couldn't be delivered - for some gobbly-good reason that doesn't make sense to my brain.
Please email me at casserole14 {at} gmail {dot} com and let me know if you received it or not. Thanks!

Hi Michele, I'm just getting around to visiting you from Vicki's GYB party. Thank you so very much for following me. I really apprecitate it. I can't believe you have 8 children and 19 grandchildren. You look so young and beautiful. I come from a big family and have always wanted a big family, but it wasn't in the cards for me. I love to scrapbook, too....so I'll be watching you. Thanks again!

Denise said...
