To Warm You....And GIVEAWAY Winner

Hello to all and thank you for stopping by to visit me, even thought I am out of town right now..... 

You might want to follow me here.....it's one of the few places right now that is warm and beautiful...so I hope that these couple of photos that I shot warm you up and thaw you out.......

This past week was crazy busy and I'm thankful for that, for my customers, friends and my wonderfully supportive family. I really can use this weekend to unwind a bit and be alone within my head to think a bit at my ocean......

I've been a slack blogger in terms of visiting most of my blog friends lately, but honestly my website business has been taking up every bit of my long days, grateful, grateful.....

To my eyes and ears...blogging (and commenting) should be authentic and genuinely from the heart with no obligation. Lately I see too much of it being otherwise...but that's a whole other post for another day perhaps! I hope that you forgive me dearest blog friends.....

The winner of the NOVICA GIVEAWAY is #26, Alison Gibbs. 

Congrats Alison....I'll see if I can reach you through your blog to give you the code for redeeming your $50 gift card!

Until next time....from the beach


  1. Hi Janet,
    I'm glad that you are getting a much needed rest and I can't think of a better place than the beach.
    Our beach here is pretty cold right now, but nevertheless, very peaceful.

    I know what you mean about commenting. I worry when I can't get back to everyone and it really shouldn't be that way. I want to show my appreciation and respond but sometimes life gets in the way.
    It's hard, but I know who the sincere ones are and you are one of them.

    Beautiful photos and the wreath is stunning.


  2. Hi Janet... the ocean looks so serence and relaxing... I hope you are enjoying it... congratulations to your winner!... sending much love your way, and as always, kisses to Murphy... the wreath is just gorgeous!... xoxo Julie Marie

  3. PS I love to visit you always and know how busy you are and how much you appreciate your loyal blogger friends and customers (like me)... I don't ever want anyone to feel like commenting is an obligation... I just miss my friends some times, then get excited when I see a new comment as they have time!... xoxo Julie Marie

  4. How lucky you are to get away, Janet! And to the beach! Yes!! I am sure you need it and I hope you come back refreshed and energized! Beautiful photos!

    Hurray for Alison...what a sweet and generous giveaway!


  5. Congratulations to the lucky winner! It's been unseasonably warm here in So Cal, I'm ready for some rain! I love the heart wreath with the cherub:)

  6. I envy you being at the beach but at least it is a pretty day here in Georgia! I'm enjoying some lovely fresh air!!

    I try to comment but only if I really have something to say. So I know what you mean. We all need to do what we can and be happy! hugs, Lina

  7. Janet thank you so much. I am so happy to be lucky enough to have won your giveaway.
    Looks like you are having a wonderful peaceful break
    Take care
