*It's Time for BLOG CANDY*

****Contest is now closed.....****

Yup, you read it right! I was very surprised to check in this morning to find myself over the 50,000 visitor mark!! WOO HOO!!! To celebrate, I'm offering up some blog candy. I haven't thrown it together yet, but if you go back to take a look at old blog candy I've handed out, I think you'll agree I like to put together something pretty good.


To enter, please leave a comment on this post with your name and what your favourite flower is.

You can leave your comments until Friday, May 25th at noon. I will then use the random number generator to choose a winner (or perhaps even a few winners)! This post will remain at the top until the drawing so be sure to scroll down to see new posts

Thanks so much to everyone who comes by to see my creations and to those who leave comments on a regular basis! I'm glad you come by and like what you see!

Gosh, what flower don't I love. I guess I love pansies as they look like happy little flowers with a smiley face. My greatgrandmother always had pansies in her garden and we would pick them together and put them in a little glass by her front door. Fond memories. Thanks for letting me think on this Nancy and thanks for the blog candy.

Shortly after my grandmother passed away (10 years ago) my mom told me that my grandmothers favorite flower had been the Hydrangea.
