First Anniversary Celebration/Give-Away


Welcome to my First Anniversary Celebration/Giveaway. I am so glad that you stopped by.

Please join me and Bentley, my very helpful Studio Assistant, for a cup of tea in my Fall garden for a giveaway to THANK all of YOU for your support of my new blog. Words can't begin to describe how much fun it has been getting to know so many of you in Blog Land, and how appreciative I am of each and every one of you who visited my blog, left comments and are following me on my journey "looking for inspiration for my art - here - there - and everywhere.

I am also honored and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have mentioned my blog on your blog and have shown The Painted Garden under your favorites.

One day I received a phone call from Barbara Jacksier, http://barbarajacksier.blogspot.com of the Book Blog and author of the fabulous book, Waterside Cottages, asking permission to show my art on one of her blog post. We had a delightful chat and she said something that sums blogging up for me - she said "my husband equates blogging to having lots of fabulous pen pals all over the world".


I poured you a nice cup of hot tea.

The garden is all dressed up for Fall in your honor.

The pumpkins and scarecrows are all in place.

The garden is all decked out for Fall and ready to celebrate all of YOU.

Bentley is anxious for us to get to your Thank you giveaway.

Bentley has a good eye for finding inspiration in my little garden!

I wanted to show you this cute idea for displaying seasonal flowers in an old sap bucket by hanging it on the back of an Adirondack garden chair.

Now that you have relaxed with a cup of tea, it is time for your THANK YOU Give-Away. The first prize is a $100.00 Gift Certificate to Anthropology.
