  1. Hi Darling! I know how hard it is to blog and have family there. Have a great visit. I will have to check out these people you have introduced. I already know Erin. (Hi Erin)

    I will have to take some photos of my chickens that you sent to me. Now, I just don't want to get them dirty! :(

  2. Kelli and I should be friends! We have tons in common!! I LOVE the apron, and have actually been searching around for one that is more sassy.;)

    I love Cheri's blog (you were the first to introduce her to me.) I will definitely check out her project. Looks awesome!

    I recently started following the Mother Load, and adore her blog. I'm trying to slowly but surely go ALL GREEN!

    Great Tickled Pink Holly! Enter me in the giveaway... I'll do all of the things on the list right now. PS... I'm glad Nikki won the giveaway. She is a doll.

  11. Your post about this yesterday made me panic and think it was Friday and that I had somehow missed a day and missed my deadline, my hubs was in hysterics laughing at me!

  12. I love that apron, it's so pretty. I keep meaning to bake bread, and still haven't gotten around to it. Hang on, I'm just realising we haven't put an oven in our new house yet. Maybe that's something for me to think about. lol

  13. I'm soooo flippin pumped I won!! Thank you so much! I seriously don't think I've ever won anything!!
    I love the tips over at The Mother Load. I'm trying to start a healthier lifestyle for me and the fam and totally appreciate all the tips and tricks everyone has to offer!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am a follower of your lovely blog! I think I need one of these pretty aprons! The one I use was free with a magazine subscription... it does the trick, but not nearly as beautifully as one of these would!

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Hey Holly,

    Thanks for the post--you are so sweet. Do your gals realize how amazing you are?

    Of course I am a stalker--um I mean loyal follower of YOU.

    I can not wait to go check out the other sites as well. We really want to go all green. I would love to build a house that is totally green and super efficient--using the ION water heaters instead of burning gas all day to keep your water hot and have a huge basin for catching rain and storing it for re-use in our home etc etc.

    I love the train product below--it sounds like a great game. I will have to check it out. I will try to get back over to do it as well. My computer was down, most of the day yesterday, so I was behind, but I was already behind on our huge project from the new MckLinky thing all week--which I am going to post a FUN "enter any project you want" post with a give-a-way, here in a few minutes, so people can try the all New Improved MCKLINKY you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE it. With all the comments that came in this week he has improved it so it is AWESOME-you won't even recognize it.

    Have fun with your parents.

  25. Holly,
    Couldn't wait spent my lunch hour at 504 Main, so glad I did. I didn't want to comment on the older posts, I know but there is so much I want to share with you. The recipes, two thumbs up. Blogging etiquette, I can not tell you how much I needed that post, I want to be so correct in this as The Swing grows, but you helped me tremendously, also all your comments on these posts from such a wonderful group of people. So glad to be here, your'e a jewel, there are a few in this little corner, and you are one.
    PS, the window screen wreaths, do you know how many window screens were destroyed in Katrina, I could have really went to town. I am still pulling them out of the brush here and there with cleanup volunteering. Yes we are still cleaning up.

  26. Erin is so passionate about going green. I get lazy and think about throwing something in the trash instead of taking it down to be recycled and I think "oh, Erin would be mad!" LOL

  27. I just love Etsy store recommendations, that is how I find the best stuff!! I would love to have that apron. Once I get back to my own house, I'm going to sleep, craft and cook my little heart out!

    I'm off to check out her store and her blog and I will leave a comment there.

  33. I feel like I always leave a relevant comment unless instructed to do so. Then, I have a little brain freeze and wonder what a comment is really supposed to say. Nice, huh? And I bake bread and am brunette (well, the bottle is brunette anyway). No more baby girls for me though:( But I am a follower.
