I’m Having a Party!!!

Okay, I’m taking the plunge! I’ve been toying with the idea of hosting a garden, out door and summer themed link party complete with some giveaways. I couldn’t make up my mind and then I was contacted by CSN Stores to host a giveaway and that was my confirmation to go for it! If you aren’t familiar with CSN, you can check them out here:

Shop any of our 200+ StoresThey have over 200 stores to choose from! They have lots of summer, outdoor decor to choose from too…perfect for a giveaway at a Garden Party! These are some things that caught my eye.

A fountain:

Little Giant Pumps Flower Basket Planter Fountain

A rippling bird bath:

Allied Precision Industries Water Wiggler with Rippling Brook Sound

Garden Globes:

Blomus Matte Bola Garden Globes on Wooden Poles Set

They have so much to choose from! One lucky party guest will receive a $40 GC from CSN!

I am working on some other great gardening and summer giveaways too…details as I get them!

So, I am very excited! I love summer, I love parties and you know I love gardening and I also love seeing all kinds of inspiring projects! This way I get to experience all of them at once by hosting a Garden Party! The party will last three days, from June 23-25th, plenty of time to get a project completed and link up! Bring any summer, garden or outdoor projects you’d like to share. I’ll be ready with the door prizes! :-)

  1. Thank you for the award Sharon!! I feel so honored!!
    Your Garden Party sounds fun...I will have to think about which area I want to work on. Then link up.
    I will also put the link on my blog.
    Happy Gardening

  2. Well darn...I wanted to add the link (your button) for the Garden Party but it doesn't work. It won't link back?? Sniff!!!
    Waiting for button

  3. I'm am sooooo looking forward to your garden party. I have posted your invite code on my blog and will be happy to participate. I have a weekly feature called "plOTTing and planting" where I post what we are up to in the garden, yard and landscape, so I will definitely be linking up to your party! Happy Gardening!

  4. Sharon, I put your exciting garden party link on my left sidebar. The link didn't return to your blog, so I added a link to your front page. Is that where you want it? All I had to do was go into my HTML, click on your button, and then add the link, so it's working well from my blog. I just want to make sure that I'm sending them where you want them to go. I'm sending them to your front page. Let me know if you would like me to change it. Yippee -- more parties. Let me know if it becomes a weekly event and I will add it to my party links, as well!
