Mom's Birthday Giveaway

This is the perfect picture of my Mom.  She loved reading in the early morning and this picture was taken at my sister Stacey's house when Mom and Dad were visiting one year.  January 9th was Mom's birthday and even though she has been gone for many years now, Stacey and I like to celebrate her day by having Birthday Giveaway's on our blogs. 

This year Stacey is giving away a wonderful book that she thinks Mom would have loved called The Healing Quilt by Laurainne Snelling. 

Mom also loved to drink her tea in the mornings with her quiet time reading, so I will be making a set of four quilted coasters for my giveaway and a nice box of tea.  Just leave a comment, even just Hello will do, and you will be entered in my drawing for the coasters and tea. I'll draw a name sometime on the 9th.  

~Don't forget to pop over to Stacey's place, Stacey's Treasures, to be entered in her giveaway as well~

Happy beginning of 2012 all!

So glad you posted this and especially about the love of reading. I was thinking of you all this past week as I dug into not one but four books and finished 'em all! One, "Cleo -a Cat Who Mended a Family" my daughter gave me for Christmas. The 2nd one was "Black Hills" by Nora Roberts, which my BFF for over 60 years now gave me for my birthday. Then I dug into a pile of books I bought 2-3 years ago and had never got around to reading them and read "Big Russ and Me" by the late Tim Russert and the final one, "Like Dandelion Dust" by Karen Kingsbury and I still have about 10 more books sitting, waiting on me to get busy and get 'em read! Hope you had a beautiful holiday and here's wishing you and your family the Happiest of New Year's too! Peace.
