This is the give away! It is a great book, plus a few goodies!

Noah has gone shopping and wants to have another give away! I have recently reached 105 people who are now following my blog. Can you believe that? I can't! I am not that interesting. That is what makes it so special. People, visit just because they are nice! I am having a give away in honor of my 100Th follower. I will have Noah pick a winner at the end of the month. He had a good time picking the last one and wants to do it again. He loves the shopping part, a chip off the old block!

I also wanted to take the time to tell you about a few special ladies that I meet during these last few months in Blog land. The first one is Sares, her blog is called http://loveleightreasures.blogspot.com/. Sares was one of the very first people who began to follow my blog. She was an instant best friend, someone you can count on. She figured out early, I had no knowledge of computers and was and is still willing to help anytime I ask her. I often joke with her that she would do a better job with my blog than I have. This week this wonderful lady sent me a gift! What is wrong this that picture? It should be the other way around. Sares, is just a giving person and I am so blessed to have her in my life and to be able to call her friend.

The next lady I want to tell you about is Gwen. Her blog is http://acharminghome.blogspot.com/. I have only know her for about 6 months, yet I feel like I have know her all my life. You can always count of Gwen for random acts of kindness and she is always ready to pray for any need you have. She is one of those super sweet ladies you meet and wish you were half as sweet as she is. She is having a giveaway this month, so visit her blog. Her things are beautiful. She recently gave me an blog award! It is amazing to me that people you have never meet, are so important.

The next lady I want to tell you about is Bunny at http://bunnymissbrenner.blogspot.com/. Bunny is an amazing woman who always speaks her mind. She is bold and brave and everything, I am not. She recently offered her home to me, in case we had mud problems due to the rains. She as never met me, and yet she opened up her home to me and my family. There is no way you cannot see God work, with wonderful people like these ladies in the world. I feel so lucky. I think of her as one of my dearest friends. She has not been feeling well, so please, say a little prayer for her.

Carolyn from http://draffinbears.blogspot.com/ is a new friend who is always encouraging to me. She recently gave me a wonderful award. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends.

I want to take time in the next few weeks to feature wonderful ladies who make a difference in other people's lives and they might not even know it! You might just be next!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog and for all your encouragement! The pictures are what Sares sent me! I love it all! Blessings, Martha

OK Miss M...I'm going to comment on your sweet giveaway even though I'm quite sure Mr. Noah won't pull my name out a second time. I'm blessed, but not that blessed!

Congrats on your 105 Followers. We all love you!

I will have to go and take a peek at these Blogs also!

I know Miss Bunny and she is such a lovely person so it doesn't surprise me that she would open her home to you :)

I am trying to catch up on my Blog visits so I am off to see what I missed on yours while I have been away.

Hi, Martha! I dropped in from Rebecca's. Your blog is wonderful. And little Noah is adorable.

Now, I have a dream of an English garden. That is, I have been wanting one for quite some time. I admire you greatly for your hard work and diligence in having one. And I am very sure I could learn much from you.

Blessings this night, dear friend.

Vicki said...

Hi, Martha,
We have not visited in a while and so I wanted to stop by and say hello. Congratulations on having over 100 followers! I am not at all surprised at all. You and a kind and caring lady, and this is why others are attracted to you and your blog. I know all of the above mentioned ladies, and they are all sweethearts. Congratulations on your award from Gwen. Thank you for having a give away. I can see Noah likes shopping (like grandmother) and drawing names out of a hat. Blessings to you, dear friend. Vicki

Martha...you have some lovely items. You do love PINK! And I remember the days of Garage Saling, when I saw lots of deer also. In Wisconsin...when the sales were fantastic! Now in AZ - no deer, no good sales either...but I like you need to simplify...so it is a good thing!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Little Noah is already a smart guy! Congrats on having so many followers. You are kind and filled with grace so of course many will come to visit and enjoy their time with you. Looks like you received some nice Fall treasures from Sares. I'm not sure if I have visited her blog so will definitely have to do so. Of course, my cousin, Gwen, is the one who talked me into this blog business in the first place. HA! And Bunny is a faithful visitor with whom I enjoy corresponding! I wish I didn't live so far away so that I could join in on all the giveaways and swaps that go on in blogland. :) Wishing you all the best for your weekend. Peace & blessings, Tammy

Rebecca Nelson said...

Dear Sweet M....

You are HYSTERICAL! I'm NOT famous! Just has the enormous blessing of being featured in a couple issues of Romantic Homes Magazine. I was as shocked as anyone else, believe me.

I actually wasn't too keen on putting the Mag pics on my sidebar...but one of my friends talked me into it after blogging about 9 months.

Anyway...you are toooooooo cute! And trust me when I tell you I'm just 'little ol' me'. A born and bread California Girl who loves to create, loves her family and LOVES the Lord.

Hugs & love to you sweet girl...I LOVE MY BOOK I won from you! LOVE IT! Give Mr. Noah a squeeze from me and tell him thank you AGAIN!

Love, Rebecca

Claudia said...
