Hello everyone!  I hope your week went well!

This is just a quick post to let you all know that I have created a new button for my blog.  I wanted to tie my button in with my new header picture to give it a more unified look.

Sorry for the small picture.  I had to copy it off of my sidebar, because for some reason, the picture I saved from Picnic wouldn't open in Blogger, so I  had to re-save it off of my sidebar.  When I tried to enlarge the picture, it was just a blur...  wish I knew why these things happen...


Anyhooow, If you've grabbed my old blog button, I would greatly appreciate it if you would replace it with this one.  All you need to do is just copy the picture and add it to your sidebar with the link back to my blog.

Thanks so much to all of you who grab my button... I APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH!! :)

You're all probably tired of hearing about my giveaway coming up on Monday, but this is just a reminder to those who may be new to my blog... I hope to see you all on Monday for my giveaway announcement featuring a gift package from Maria of Dreamy Whites and a little something extra from Tracey of French Larkspur

Speaking of these two lovely ladies... have you seen Maria's fabulous mantle redo and Tracey's fabulous Fall Cocktail post?  They're definitely worth a looksy... I just loved them!!

We're going to my youngest daughter's school Halloween Fun Night tonight and then trick-or-treating on Sunday.  Both of my daughters are going to be witches, but they have different costumes.  They wore them to school today... they looked sooo cute cool!! :)


Hugs ~

Jo :-)

P.S.  Please know that this is NOT a solicitation for anyone to grab my button, but rather for those who have already chosen to do so on their own... so that they can change out my old button for the new one. :)


  1. Hi Jo,
    I love your new button, it's just beautiful and your photos are gorgeous! There's nothing like beautiful roses to make everything lovely!
    That's so great that your girls got to wear their costumes to school, my son's school wouldn't let them. His school didn't have anything fun for the kids to do for Halloween. Oh well, tricks and treats are on Sunday.
    Have a great time out with your girls tonight.
