I would be happy to become a follower of your blog. Feel free to do the same with me! :) Oh yes, I would truly love reading through that magazine, so please sign me up.

Stacey said...

What a sweet give away! I already bought the magazine so don't enter me. :)

HeathahLee said...

Pick me! Pick me! : )

My husband surprised me on our 10th anniversary by giving me a ring. I had no idea he was doing it, and it was (and still is) gorgeous. It's not a gigantic diamond or anything (not that I'd wear anything like that anyway...just not a flashy diamond kind of girl) but it fits me perfectly.

Oh, and I just started following you! (again!) : )

Melissa Miller said...

~Ah! Meme you are soooo sweet my friend! Thank you for having such a thoughtful giveaway for us. I am already a faithful friend and follower of your lovely blog. I'm enjoying it very much.

Have a blessed day. ~Melissa :)

PS Your curtains came out gorgeous! Love em'.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oops, sorry Meme! Well, my gift that filled my heart full was two bookcases my hubby made for me one Christmas. He put so much time and care into making them, even though he always complained that I had a book in my hand. It was also one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received.

Joanne said...

A gift that warmed my heart? This is easy. My son, Ryan, was with friends when he saw a shop owner throwing out a standing display rack that they no longer needed. As soon as he saw it, he asked the man if he could have it and he carried it all the way home for me (for my home- based business). He knew that I would love it and I did.

Please enter my name in your giveaway -- that's so nice of you!

Thanks, Joanne @ glamourgirljoanne@yahoo.com

my favorite gift is a bracelet that hubby bought me for Valentine's Day. He wanted to get it for me for christmas and couldn't find it, so he researched, found it, and took me with him to buy it on Valentine's weekend.....I love it!
Put my name in your cute little giveaway hat, please!!

Pop my name in the hat!:)

Lisa @ Another Day Today said...

I would love to be entered - that looks like a great magazine. I'm a stalker/follower.

My favorite gift? 23+ years ago when the hubby and I were still dating, he bought me a pair of black leather gloves because my hands were always so cold in the winter. I still have them. :)

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Dont feel bad about killing those plants....I'm rightb with you!
Sweet giveaway! I have stopped buying mags because I'm trying to save some mola....miss them~

call me crazy said...

Hi Meme~ thanks for stopping by my blog! I was going to write back, but you are set as a no-reply blogger, so instead I decided to drop in. ;-) I love your style! Your Daisy table with the sunflower on it nearly made me swoon!! LOL :-) I am joining your followers now. I gotta keep an eye on you! :-)) My favorite gifts have been the totally unexpected ones!~ my children! :-) Long story but with a happy ending. :-) And DH showing up with flowers after a busy day~ just makes me happy! Have a great evening!

Kimberly said...

I will follow you! You can to my blog today! I love that magazine!

one gift I got - well two gifts - were my two daughters!!!

Sarah said...

Love the name of your blog. Thanks for stopping by to visit. It brought me over here, and now I'm adding myself as a follower. I look forward to many more visits.

Sandra said...

I am a new follower...thanks for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment. I would love this magazine...one I have not picked up yet. A heartfelt gift was Opal (my birthstone) earrings and necklace I received as Christmas gifts this past year.

Michelle said...

It's nice to meet you, too, and for inviting me over. You have a great blog and now I'm a follower!! I, also, love the magazine, nothing like drooling over some pages of inspiration...
One of the gifts that warmed my heart would have to be my sweet sixteen ring my mom gave me. It is a beautiful little gold aquamarine ring (my birthstone). I felt like a princess getting that ring! I will always treasure this, since she is no longer with us, but I have great memories. Thank you again, Meme, for stopping by my blog.

fitnesschick said...

Very creative....your pictures give a warm fuzzy feeling like your home does!!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I can't tell you how thankful I am that you commented on my blog which lead me here. I like your style and love your title. I would be thrilled to win a copy of this magazine in your giveaway. You see, I like anything simple because that is how I am. I must tell you, your blog is so interesting and so informative. I do need some curtains in my upstairs bedroom redo. I think I am going to use your great idea. I will be back to visit again.

Emily@remodelingthislife said...

oooh i picked it up at the checkout line the other day and wanted to get it. what a nice giveaway!

Lou Cinda said...

Okay, let's see...my favorite gift...it would have to be the gifts of my children and my husband. My children are the greatest thing I have ever received, and my husband as well. Though I have only had the husband for 5 years, he has been a constant blessing and gift to my children and I. He gives of his time, his talents, he can do or fix ANYTHING! It is nothing unusual for one of my boys to come in and tell him their car is making a "funny" noise or something like that and he is on it! They are not his biological children, but he is the only "father" they have, and we all love him! Definitely, the greatest gift!

Have a great weekend!

Lou Cinda

Just a little something from Judy said...

Since I'd love to be part of your giveaway and my memory is not that great...I am back to give you the answer to your question. What gift did I receive that warmed my heart? Many years ago, before my grandma was confined to her bed, she and I went to an auction of her good friend's farm. She took me aside and asked me to choose whatever I wanted and she would get it for me. I chose an old pink Fiestaware pitcher that has sat above my kitchen cupboards ever since I received it. She is in heaven now, but I still have that rare, sweet gift that she got me.

Anonymous said...

I subscribe to your feed. The best gift I ever got was my son. He came later in life and that made him all the more precious.

Cherry Hill Cottage~ said...

I forgot to tell you what gift I got that left my heart full...

when Milton buys me Wal-Mart flowers.

Love the Decor! said...

One of the most heartwarming gifts I received was a
Dove Christmas ornament from a dear friend this past Christmas. My father passed away in December and I was sharing with her how cool I thought it was that the hospital placed a dove on the door of the room a person passed away in. As a tribute to my father and to our friendship, my dear sweet friend presented me with a beautiful sparkly dove to put on our tree each year

Melinda said...

Looks like an awesome mag! The sweetest gift this year, was my husband cleaning the house so it was spotless and then lighting candles all over so that the house was welcoming when I returned from a trip. He loves to make the home a place I want to return to, on the rare occasion that I do get away! ♥ him!

Tootsie said...

well now..that is simple. I have one question...are you excluding Canadians like so many bloggers do when they do a give-away? I am a canadian...and I don't exclude my friends ever...but thought I best ask...
I am a follower...and I huge fan...
Many of my blogging friends know that I have had a lot of personal trauma this last couple of years and they are so thoughtful to send little gifts and cards. My most favorite things are those that touch my heart...such as the gifts that were created just for me by them...they even included the tootsie time name on many of them!
you have a wonderful week-end miss meme!

Melinda said...

I'm sure it's me but your button takes me to your photobucket page and the html info only brings you back to photobucket. Do you have a code I can use to put the button on my blog?

gail@myrepurposedlife.blogspot.com said...

Real Cottage Love!
Nothing says HOME like a cottage, in my humble opinion.
My sweet husband once drove 14 miles to get me a frozen coke, just because I wanted one. :)
He fills my heart each and every day with abundant love.

Danica said...

Hi. Thanks for dropping by my blog. It was my birthday last week and I got a GC to a local gardening center. I went this morning and spent all of my money on dahlia tubers. It's getting almost warm enough to plant up here in Canada. Anyways, THAT was a great gift. I'd love to give that magazine a try.

Wendy said...

I can't believe I haven't heard of the magazine...but I am going to look for it tomorrow! I use to love another cottage magazine and then they stopped printing it...this looks like a good replacement for it! So glad you stopped by today and said hi :)
Your blog is beautiful!

Sarah said...

Thanks for sending me the email. For my birthday this year a blogger friend sent me an unexpected birthday package that contained one of her hand painted rooster ornaments, a set of gift enclosure cards she created, and a framed print of a watercolor. All totally loved by me!

rustic rooster interiors said...

Ohhh I WANT {would like} that magazine! Pretty Please!!!!

My husband did two things that filled my heart with love, joy & so much excitement...

1.) Purchased a picnic basket... Filled it with yummy gourmet food & wine then surprised me with a long drive to the countryside for a romantic picnic on a blanket... Just the two of us.

&

2.) He surprised me & took me to Mexico then walked me into a Spa/Resort that I had been wanting to go to for months {he listened to me} & said I could have any & as many treatments that I wanted... For my Birthday! I had NO clue! AMAZING!

I can't pick... He's the most wonderful husband ever. He surprises me all the time. I have many more cute stories to tell...

These are the best gifts ever!!!!!

OK, I think I just wrote a novel... HA HA HA

xoxo,
Alexandra

Pink and Polka Dot said...

i would love that magazine/book. I have the last one they published and I didn't even know that one was out!

my love language is gifts...not just any expensive thing...so my last gifts were wine and chocolate from my husband!

for the love of a house said...

So nice to meet you! What a fun give-away (not to mention a thoughtful husband!!) I already have this, so won't enter but wanted to say Hi!

Miss Mustard Seed said...

Thanks for inviting me over. That magazine looks beautiful and I am a mag junkie. This is a great giveaway for me. Fingers crossed. I am a new follower and I really like your style. Your white slipcovered setee with ties is very similar to one in my living room. :)

paperscissors said...

Meme, please add my name to the list of "wanters".
The gift I liked best was the gift of love I got from my husband when we married in 2003, and that gift is still bright and shiny today.

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by - I always appreciate new visitors and comments! I will definitely be spending a little time this morning "poking around" your page. Have a great weekend! One gift I loved? I was feeling a little blue, and my husband braved the Chanel counter and bought me some make-up to cheer me up. (And he HATES to go to the make-up counter even with me!) And that mag looks gorgeous!

Terri Smith said...

Hi, I'm Terri Smith, from Dimples & Dragonflies. Wanted to pop over to say thank you for visiting yesterday. It's such a pleasure when new folks show up unexpectedly.

I'm lovin' your site, and will happily become a Follower (i.e.Stalker..ha ha). I've been browsing a bit this a.m., and one of the most exciting things for me on your site, were those lovely curtains you made out of sheets!

I've seen another creative friend from "Flea Market Trixie" do the same thing! Both of your ideas were simply awesome!

It's been a joy visiting you and having you drop by as well. My studio door is always open..so you're welcomed anytime!

Blessings, joy and sunshine, Terri

Terri Smith said...

The one surprise-gift that filled my heart most recently..was when I received a dozen red roses last year from my First-Cousin on my birthday.

Although we had spent the first ten years of our lives together,we were always shy when expressing our love for one another..(an unexplanable, mixed-up family trait), and on the card that day, she wrote that she hoped somehow that this made up for all the years she'd missed. I cried that afternoon. I cry still when thinking of it.

Kelly@TearingUpHouses said...

I think the best gift I ever received was my engagement ring -- so special to me.

What a neat giveaway. I would have to say my most cherished gift is a necklace from my dad the Christmas after my mom passed. It means so much to me.

You know I am a fan!

Parsley said...

Well...thank you so much for directing us to your fun blog and giveaway.

Happy to follow after meeting such a fun blogger.

Melanie said...

I follow you!

My sweet hubby brings me a sweet tea from Chick Fil A and it is a simple gift that makes my day.

Megandvd@Beauty in the Attempt said...

You are too sweet for your comment. It made my day when I read your comment. I just force myself to make time for me -- and blogging is one of those indulgences that is just for me. :) I would love to get my hands on that magazine. I tend to hold onto magazines FOREVER and I can see this one as a keeper.

Cheers~

the thrifty ba said...

the best gift i ever received was the day my godmother died, no one knew, because it had happened suddenly (she was 48) and i was a mess. i was trying to pack to get a flight to philly and wasnt doing well. my husband had to work (he had no vacation time). then i hear a knock at the door. it was one of my best friends who just 'felt' that she needed to visit me. she was almosst home (40 mins away from my home) and she turned around and visited.
she had no idea why she needed to visit, but there she was.
her gift of her time when i needed someone was the bestest gift ever.

I'm a new follower! What a sweet gift - bet it was nice to sit and browse for a bit. :)

Mindy said...

A gift that I LOVED was a 10-day Alaskan cruise from my husband for the two of us for my birthday. Truly a once in a lifetime trip and the memories are priceless! There are very few weeks that go by without me thinking of some memory from that trip.
