A Note of Thanks!

Two notes of Thanks, actually!
I recently won a giveaway from Tami
at A Mermaids Tale, for one of her
pretty handmade totes and matching key fob!

I love it, Tami! I love the soft colored floral fabric,
perfect for summertime!
Dear friend Lori blogged about her pretty
peach hollyhocks. I made such a fuss over them
and she kindly sent me some seeds!
I can't wait to plant them and hope I can
get them to grow as lovely as she has!

They were sent in a sweet card and homemade
seed packet!

(Shameless plug for my Seed Swap blog ~
If you would like to receive/exchange seeds from
other gardening bloggers, please come to
and sign up! It is so much fun to receive them in the mail!)
Thank you both, Lori and Tami! It is so fun to get to know you better
through our blogs and in the mail!

Dear Lady Farmer,

Oh, what a beautiful print on the bag! Congratulations to you! And peach hollyhocks would be lovely. I have some double white hollyhocks, if you'd like some seed (Still haven't posted things on your other blog :) ).

Lucky recipient. I love that blue, I have a bedroom night table lamp very much like that colour and pattern. (Floral blue).

Good luck with the hollyhocks.
