Garden Party Giveaways!!!

I am so excited to announce our giveaway sponsors for the garden party! First up is a $40.00 gift card from CSN Stores! They have so much to offer for your home and garden, everything from solar lights to decorative accents and porch sets! Here are just a few things I came across:
H. Potter - GAR119 - Set of Three Thimble Pots
Love these adorable thimble planters!
H. Potter - GAR191 - Set of Two Case Iron Lanterns
Rustic Cedar - 3A/9 - Porch Rocker Set
To enter this giveaway next Wednesday through Friday, enter your project or visit some of the projects then go visit CSN Stores.  and shop around!  When you have it narrowed down to just a few things, come back here and leave me a comment on what you would use your GC on! You can start window shopping now! ;-)

Wednesday’s sponsor is Barb from Barb’s Heartstrokes Etsy shop. She has a folksy style of painting and has some beautiful patriotic, and seasonal paintings available. Barb isn’t blogging yet, but she’s working on it! She is a lady that lives and gives from her heart! In keeping with our gardening theme Barb would like to give away this “Springtime Flowers and Watermelon” painting.
Flowers & Watermelon
It is a framed 7 X 9 inch springtime design by Renee Mullins and is hand painted on fiberglass black screen.
The frame color is a Royal Purple with a lighter Lavender color for the stenciled leaves and vines around the edges.
It has been sprayed with a matte finish. It has a saw tooth metal hanger on the back.
After you visit around the party Wednesday, visit Barb’s Etsy Shop and come back here and tell me what your favorite painting is in her shop, and you will be entered to win “Springtime Flowers and Watermelon”.
Thursday’s sponsor is 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! So come back on Thursday and check out any newcomers to the party and then visit Embellished Bayou Etsy and comment on your favorite item in her store!
On Friday, Ann of Make the Best of Things, is giving away this cute, hand- painted, wood, garden sign giveaway 001
Ann is a lady of many talents! Just check out her blog and etsy shop to see!  Then for a chance to win this sign, let me know which of Ann’s art you would be most likely to purchase, from signs to handcrafted jewelry and pillows!

Whew! I still have more! Patricia Lanza author of the book Lasagna Gardening

as well as three others, her newest My Garden Doctor, is giving away a (signed) copy of Lasagna Gardening!! I love this style of gardening. It is easy and perfect when you need to build on top of the ground! You can check out her website here. Then, also on Friday, tell me what you learned when you visited her site! Lasagna Gardening with Herbs is next on my garden reading list!
Finally, I am putting together a thank you basket and will draw a number from those who will share my garden party invitation on their blog and let me know here that you have done so.
This is my first every linky party and I am very excited! Please help me spread the word…I know there will be many inspiring and creative projects to see as well as these wonderful giveaways!
