Not your average Blogger and her Giveaway....

Giveaway and an Interview.......
Have you had the pleasure yet of visiting Debra at Common Ground? I've got to say, she is one of the sweetest, most creative bloggers I've had the pleasure to "meet." In "Blogland", of course.

Debra is celebrating her 1 year Anniversary! But all you have to do is look at her "Followers" list and understand that this is no ordinary Blog and no ordinary Lady. After  her first year she has over 500 followers!

I check her blog posts regularly. It's SO fun to see what she is up to. And,,,,,I'll say, IF you leave a comment on Debra's blog she will most assuredly "hop" over and see what you are up to and leave a comment on YOURS! She takes the time to get to know folks. I love that about her,,,,,,,

So yep,,I love a good giveaway as much as the next,,but I LOVE getting to actually KNOW the bloggers a bit more! Thanks Debra,,,,,for great posts, great decorating ideas and finds and great/thoughtful comments! Happy One Year!

Stop by Debra's blog and Follow, if you don't! You'll be delighted to see/read her posts! Her giveaway is a wonderful new book, "The French Inspired Home" by Carolyn Westbrook.
But regardless of winning, this is a GREAT blog to follow!!

( I had a totally productive or nonproductive day, depending upon how you look at it! I caught up with my Best Blogger friend Lulu of Coastal Sisters, whose been "out" for weeks recovering from Pneumonia. Had a Birthday lunch and Cupcakes with my Best Local Friend, Dear Laura and spent time with her beloved Bella dog-who is doing well after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.....and I headed to the Snohomish Farmer's Market for fresh yummy produce and bread). Back to painting the Studio tomorrow,,,,,,,,I have a helper at least for tomorrow! Son Andrew is done with  College Finals and is my "honey-do" guy tomorrow!)

Now, go visit Debra's Blog if you haven't yet!
Giveaway ends June 30th,,,,,,but you'll be happy just following her blog!

Happy Thursday!
