Garden Party Day 2 with MORE Giveaways!

There are some great projects already linked up at the Main Garden Party page. You can still link up your ideas and enter the CSN Stores Giveaway. (They have everything from Solar lights to indoor furniture and toys.)  on the link above.

I hope that all the different links haven’t been too confusing…I didn’t intend it to be. I guess too much of even a good thing can be confusing…and giveaways are GOOD! :-)

So, to try and keep things sorted out, I’m going to have a running list of links today and tomorrow to try and keep us all directed to the right place! If you get a little too warm from the sun and hopping around, have a glass of fresh raspberry lemonade.

It will cool you off and refresh you while you window shop and enter the giveaways!

Today’s Giveaway is from Christy of Embellished Bayou. I found Christy through a linky party and I really enjoy her very creative blog. She also has an Etsy shop with the cutest frames! She is sharing one of them with us! Isn’t it darling? Very girly girl!

This wood frame has been hand-painted hot pink. It is embellished with a yellow floral bow and a bright blue gerber daisy and further accented with sparkly blue butterflies. The frame is approximately 2.25" wide and measures 8"x8" overall. The opening is for a 3.5"x3.5” photo. Glass and backing are included. Frame must be displayed on a tabletop or you could add your own hanger to hang it on a wall.
Christy said she can personalize this frame with the winner's name, initial, monogram or short phrase if they so choose.
This would be an awesome gift! Please visit Embellished Bayou Etsy and come back here to leave a comment on your favorite item in her store!

Also, if you have entered an idea or project on the Main Garden Party Page, then this giveaway is for YOU!

Miss Jenny of Miss Jenny’s Soap is graciously sponsoring my “Thank you for linking up” gift! She will give you the basic soap of your choice just for linking up! She’s nice like that! :-) Miss Jenny is local, and a homeschooling mom…I know her in real life! Go check out her soaps here so that you are ready to let her know what you want when we draw your name!

I discovered these while browsing:

Shampoo Bar Peppermint and Rosemary
Our peppermint and rosemary soap/shampoo is
designed to be gentle, cleansing, and long lasting. It
has a nice mint-y aroma and lots of bubbles!


AND soap for pets!! It’s actually her Bug Repellant soap! I’ll be ordering some of each!

  1. i have a post (sorta) about your party!

  2. May I make s uggestion?
    I am very new to blogging, but one thing I've learned is that when you add a link, make it open in a new window so the reader does not leave your site. They can visit the linked site but it is so easy to come back to you because you are still open.
    Your site and party are so much fun, it is hard to leave!

  3. I loved the personalized soaps! What an awesome idea and a great gift idea too!

  4. Love the soaps too! What a treat to have shampoo in a bar of soap. Cool!

  5. I am a big kid. My bathroom would love to be home to Rubber Ducky Glycerin soaps.
    I have an invitation to come join the party on my FB profile.

  6. This comment has been removed by the author.

  7. Okay I LOVED everything !!!! But I think if I HAD to pick a favorite it would be the "Handaltered Wood Frame Embellished with Flower and Rhinestone Crystals." I'm sure if you look at it mom you'd know why :o)

  8. I had to pick I would totally get the Handpainted 5x7 Wood Frame Embellished with Burlap Bow, Rose and Vintage Rhinestone Button. It would look great with one of my wedding pictures in it. P.S. I linked up again to the party with some tips for planting great flower pots. Keep on partyin'!!!

  9. My favorite in her shop is the Handpainted Wood Frame Embellished with Scrolls, here:

    Love it!

  10. I posted about your party, and I LOVE the frame!

  11. I love the hand-painted embellished wood frames at the Embellished Bayou!

  12. I posted your party on my sidebar, so I'm requesting an additional entry here. I think I've got that right!!!
