SUMMER BLISS GIVE-AWAY !!!

( FOR COPYING AND POSTING )


This give-away is for all my followers for their support and kind comments. I've thought about how to do this all week and didn't want this to be a hoop jumping kind of thing. So, I came up with several ways to win.
My current followers will automatically get 1 point. If you stop by and tell me what you love about Summer, you get another. Now, as some will desire this more than others, here are ways to collect more points!  If you decide to follow my blog, you will get 6 points. If you post this on your blog,with a link you will get another 5 points.
If you post it to your side-bar, you will get 5 points. So, you could have as many as 18 points in the drawing.

Sound Fair ?

For the past couple days this has been my harsh activity. Reading, Sunning and trying to avoid getting UV on my face, plus planning my new flower bed. It's still a work in progress. I'm still pondering on it ;) 


While looking through my journal, I came across some wish pages. It's hard for me to not post an outfit, but I have been wearing boxers with Tropical drinks on them and a black tank for no-show gardening.


These pretty much sum up my style, with the exception of white jeans and pale,sheer neutrals. Also, a pair of tan oxfords I am still looking for in thrift shops!

I LOVE THIS DRESS !

AND THESE SHOES !


This swim suit is so cute from Newport News. Each piece is only $8.99! Too bad I don't need one.








Some yummy shoes to parooze ! All from Newport News.
Their stuff is not for "old ladies". It is pretty hip and good quality. They also have leggings that are really cool.
In my opinion, their stuff is trendy, but not over-the-top.



This may be my favorite part of summer. The bliss of nature! My Bitty-Bitty is a house cat, and I have been letting her go outside with me lately. She absolutely loves it, and at 18, she deserves some summer bliss!
A flea treatment is a small price to pay to see her so happy! Her first day out, I "lost" her for a few seconds. When I called her, she came bounding off the "hill" behind our house, all purry and her feet were COVERED with mud! That was an adventure for both of us. She did not like getting her feet scrubbed! She did get her pedicure after all ! I hope you all have a blissful weekend !!!

Oh, I'm so excited about your give away. I will post a link to it on my blog. If I figure out how to put it on the side, I'll do that too. I've been a follower for a few months now.

What I love about Summer is all the different ice cream stands around the city, and also there's no traffic.

What a nice idea for a giveaway! (If I win, please give the earrings to a runner-up since my ears aren't pierced.) My favorite thing about summer is longer days, with sunlight well into the evening. Actually, that is the ONLY thing I like about summer.

Your kitty looks so happy lying in the sun! My dog is like that, too. He goes outside for other purposes and immediately lays down to sun himself - doesn't even care if he's in the dirt.

I love waking up when I want and staying up as late as I want. Having lazy days and reading lots of books. I am a teacher and love the summer break.

Thanks for a fabulous giveaway!
