I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
My husband is in from out of town and the whole family is together. Thankful….
I have to show you a little truck I picked up the other day.
I don’t think it’s very old, but it sure is cute.
I.M. MacDonald Fresh Farm Produce
Isn’t it a cutie?
Speaking of fresh produce…
I had a sweet and generous friend bring me two bushels of green beans yesterday. Oh yeah, that’s a lot of green beans.
We have been breaking beans, cooking beans, and canning beans.
We have also been creating beautiful “stained glass windows” today.
My sweet 9 year old has been crafting. Crayons, paper, and an iron on low setting = lots of fun and prettiness.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, friends.

You know I have been telling you how much I love whites, woods, metals, and textures and the combination of them all.
I have already shown you some of these photos, but wanted to show you again what really speaks volumes to me.
These are just some of my favorite things!
Don’t forget that I will be drawing a name tomorrow for the winner of the $25 gift certificate that will be used in Kim's Sew Cute Kreations etsy shop. If you haven’t signed up for that giveaway, you can still do so until 12:00 central time tonight. Go here for a chance to win.
I hope you are all doing great! Have a blessed week!

Hey all my friends!
Today is a good day! How about where you are?
I told you in my last post (here) about the giveaway I was going to be hosting for a sweet friend and new etsy shop owner. My friend’s name is Kim and she and I actually go to church together. She is a beautiful lady, inside and out. She is a wife, and mother of two precious children. She also has great talent and has decided to share some of that talent with all of us.
I told Kim that once she got her shop open, I would LOVE to introduce you all to her and let you have a chance to see her creations.
She is still in the process of filling her shop but does have several things listed. She will be adding more so be sure to keep visiting her.
Right now I want to show you a few beautiful pillows she made for me. (Can I just say a big wooo hooo for my friends who can sew and are so generous and kind?)
This is the pillow I showed you the other day. I love the light burlap…so clean and crisp.
Love the multiple burlap rosettes on this one.
Love that this burlap beauty reads Made in the USA across the top. Words and graphics are always a winner to me. (I have actually asked Kim to make me a pillow with a cow graphic of some sort on it and can wait to see what she comes up with) Of course, I will be sure to show you.
I especially love this red and white ticking pillow. I have really enjoyed pulling some reds and blues into our home recently so this one is just perfect sitting on my little bistro chair.
Now to the fun giveaway part.
Kim is offering a $25 gift certificate to use in her shop for whoever wins.
She is also offering a 10% discount to anyone who is a follower of mine and orders something from her. If you are a follower and want to buy something from her shop, then just let Kim know in the “Notes” section that you are a follower of Amy’s or All Things Home. EASY enough. (“Thanks Kim for offering to do this for my friends”)
***DISCLAIMER…I always hesitate in asking people to follow me during a giveaway time, but I think Kim’s idea of doing this was too kind and too generous to pass up.
Okay…so here’s what I would love for you to do…
Go to Kim’s etsy shop, Sew Cute Kreations, and take a look around. Again, remember that she will be adding new items to her shop soon.
Then I would like for you to come back and tell me what your “favorite” is in her shop.
I would also love for you to share this giveaway with your friends on facebook or your blog.
Leave me a comment telling me what’s your favorite thing.
If you share it on facebook, leave me a comment.
If you share it on your blog, leave me a comment.
That’s 3 comments total that you can leave me and get your name in the drawing three times. (Boy, I don’t like confusing giveaways…is this one confusing?) I think this one is actually pretty easy compared to some others I have seen.
Okay…when you have a minute…click HERE to go to Kim’s Sew Cute Kreations and take a look around. Remember to come back and leave your comments.
The WINNER will be chosen one week from today on Monday, August 13th.
God bless you all!!
Thanks, my friends, for always supporting new bloggers and new etsy shop owners. You are all great!!
