Spring Banner Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone!
Thursday was my birthday and I woke up with an ugly sinus headache, so posting was out of the question, I was just trying to survive.  Perhaps it was the realization that I'm now 54 that made me sick, who knows, just a bad way to spend your birthday, that's all I know.  Then we were gone for three days, but I'm home now.

I want to show you a sweet little banner that I made on Wednesday, just in time to show off for Spring Time.

Would you like to win the Spring banner?
If you do, just leave a comment telling me that you would like to win.
 Thank you to my oldest daughter and her family, who sent me a beautiful rose and chocolates, and my first big birthday balloon.  Does that mean the older I get the more I enjoy childish things?  Hmmmm?  It made my day, that's all I know.

Don't forget to leave me a comment if you would like an opportunity to win the banner!  If you don't have a blog, be sure to leave me your email address.
I will pick a name Tuesday evening.

I hope your weekend is going well!

Happy Birthday Cindy!!! Don't you know that 60 is the new 40?! Just take a look at some old yearbook from the 1950s - those poor kids looked 60 before they even graduated! lol Hope your sinuses clear up fast and your headache disappears.

Love your banner and I'm so ready for spring to arrive!

Have a wonderful day.

I'm so sorry to read that your sinuses acted up on your birthday.
I just thought you should know that 54 is YOUNG and you are just hitting your stride with all your interests and passions. The mantle is gorgeous - in fact whenever I catch a glimpse of one of your amazing projects I am reminded of all the imagination and work you put into I hope you are able to truly celebrate your new year and pat yourself on the back!
I would love to win the banner - even if it doesn't look much like spring outside my windows.

I'm sorry about your headache. I can so relate. I get sinus headaches when there is a drastic change in the weather. Barometric pressure I'm told is the cause. It is almost impossible to function. It stinks that it happened on your birthday too. :o( I think your banner is adorable and I'd love to be the winner! To have something of yours in my home would be wonderful. Hope you have a good Sunday...I need to get going and get to church. See you!

Darling friend I like your banner! But most of alla I like you and your family: they have been so sweet for your birthday (ah, that childish baloon!!)! =)
My best wishes on your birthday, my sweet friend!! ps
You look much more young! =)

GLOANN said...

But you're so young yet. I had my 71st birthday in January and for some reason, I only feel old when I look in the mirror. I don't think I've ever commented on your blog, but want to let you know that I keep up with it and love seeing all your beautiful projects. You've inspired me to make my own banner so don't put me in the drawing for the lovely giveaway. I began reading your blog after seeing the link on the The Painted Parsonage blog which I also love.

Linda Young said...

Happy Birthday! 54, you're just a baby! I hope you're feeling better,and enjoying the wonders of spring! But it probably is the pollen that is making you feel badly! Or, you are doing too much "Spring-Cleaning"
I like the vintage tablecloth!
The spring banner is cute! I'd sure like to win it!

Blessings, Linda, from

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Cindy!! What sweet gifts. No, I don't think that it's a matter of enjoying childish things. I think that it shows that sometimes the simpler things in life including simple gifts are so appreciated.

Julie Harward said...
