It’s Time to Party!

Good Morning! It’s a lovely morning here in the North Georgia Mountains! A beautiful day for a garden party!! I’m glad you could make it. I’m very excited about this!! I love hostessing, but with a house under construction and living in our basement, I don’t have the opportunity to do it in real life! :-( 

I can’t wait to see all the fun projects that will be here! I’m afraid that I will be so inspired that my real garden will go neglected while I craft! :-) Please link up your summer, outdoor or garden ideas to share. Then mingle and chat by visiting each others projects and leave comments! Check out the daily giveaway and leave appropriate comments to be entered in the drawing for that door prize!

Door Prizes! aka Giveaways!

You can find all the sponsors for each day here. Each day I will reintroduce them and their door prize!

Our first sponsor for the party is CSN Stores.

Shop any of our 200+ Stores

They are giving away a $40.00 Gift Certificate! They have everything for your home and garden, from solar lights to home decor and toys! to enter this giveaway, go check them out and leave me a comment on this post about what you might use the GC on. I couldn’t make up my mind as I looked around! They have some awesome outdoor stuff!  This giveway is open all three days! The winner will be drawn by,  Friday at 9:30pm est.

I will also have a drawing from the project links! So if you link up a project , you will have an opportunity for an extra door prize! I will announce that sponsor in another post! :-) The drawing will be Friday after the party closes.

If you have shared my garden party on your blog or Facebook, please leave a comment here letting me know that you have done so. I’m doing a drawing from those comments for a special thank you basket from me! It’s not too late to spread the word! I understand that the html in my button is not working correctly…not sure why, so just use the button with a link underneath, ok? This drawing will also be on Friday at 9:30.

I hope that I haven’t made this too confusing with all the different links for the giveaways, but I needed to keep them separate! Check back later today and each day for more giveaways!!!

Let’s get the party started!! Remember to mingle and chat! :-) I can’t wait to see what you have!


  1. I put your button on my blog and the code worked just fine. Thanks for the invite to come link up!

  2. I would use the GC on solar lights for sure! :)

  3. Yea! The party is starting. I linked up my landscaping project as it contains lots of helpful tips. As for the CSN gift card. If I won I would probably buy some bird feeders as I have decided to start attracting some to my yard. Happy Gardening!

  4. I haven't been to an on line Garden Party before. Can't wait to see everything!

  5. I will have some landscaping pics to link up to your party eventually... still working on them. But, I would love the indoor/outdoor black damask rug from CSN! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  6. Hi sharon! I hope you don't mind me hogging two spots. It already looks like it's going to be a good party!

  7. Sorry, Sharon, the linky was acting up and I accidentally posted my link 3 times! Can you delete the last two? Thanks for the party!

  8. I think I would use the CSN gift card for some nice summery wall art. My walls are bare bare bare!

  9. I would put the GC towards the Fagor Duo Stainless Steel 9 Piece Pressure Canning Set. I really want to learn how to put food by so I can save the food from our garden for winter!!!

  10. Thanks for telling me about your party and for hosting!


  11. Hi Sharon,
    Thanks so much for inviting me to your Garden Party! Your button worked out fine for me!

    If I won, I'd probably get some new outdoor pillows for my deck.

    Thanks and have a great week!

  12. Your Garden Party is sooo FUN !!! I'm going to put your button on my blog ! If I won the gift card there are endless possibilities... I'd probably use it on whichever thing I run across first.

  13. Hello Sharon! I just wanted to thank you for the invite to such a wonderful garden party! How exciting! :D I posted my moss rock wreath to join in! I am also going to follow your's full of fun! Thank you again!

  16. Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for inviting me to the party. I have a Link party Directory that I will make sure you get on. It lists around 100 parties or so. That way a few of my readers can find you a little easier. Have a great night.


  17. I think I'm confused on where to post my comments! From CG, I'd get either their solar lights or their tricycle planters. They're so cute!!

    Thanks again for hosting!

  18. I would so love the solar lights!! I need them desperately!!! We have a long dark driveway and it needs light!! Lots and lots of light!!
    Great party!

  19. i never bought anything from CSN but i would love to buy some new bed linens for my spare room or maybe something for my garden...wish me luck!!! and also luck to all.ty for the chance

  20. I would use the GC for solar lights too. Love to light the yard and garden at night.

    I do not know how to do buttons yet (hey- I'm a slow learner, and life is hectic!) but I have been promoting this on my blog and inviting people to stop over.

  21. I linked the evolution of our garden pond to your party. Thank you for hosting! Wow -- this is a great party.

  22. If I understand correctly, since I added your link to my sidebar, I should request another entry. If I'm wrong, just remove this comment. Thanks, Sharon!

  23. Thanks for inviting me to the Party! What fun!
    I also host a Weekend Warriors linky party every Sunday over at my other blog, It's A Blog Party, if anyone is interested!
    Thanks much!

  24. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments. Also, thank you for inviting to link with the garden party. There are so many inspiring ideas on here. I am a new follower!

  25. This comment has been removed by the author.

  26. Okay, do you do this everyweek? Cause I totally forgot to come by and link up.

  27. Sorry I didn't make it in time to link up. I will link up the Peanut Butter Bird Wreath next week. So sorry! Going to check out all the other links. Have a great sunday!
