What I'm Loving & Giveaway!

There are so many things I'm loving at home this summer.
The flowers in these baskets kept dying.  I finally lined them with moss and had drip lines installed and they've been alive for three weeks and are going strong!
Our patio stays reasonably cool with the ocean breezes, 
especially in the morning and late afternoon.
We planted lots of lavender in the front of the house...
smells great!

 While I was on the patio, I clipped some greenery...
 to expand this $3.99 bunch of Trader Joe's flowers.
Love the green of this fern...
not sure how I am keeping it alive though.
 Chief is almost three months old and 
practically house broken (finger's crossed)
except that
underneath this table...
someone has been chewing on the carpet!

Back to jail.
Think he'll grow into those ears?
Lay off him.


This past Saturday was gloomily overcast, so my husband, mom, sister and I went to the fancy theater with recliner seats and waiter service.  Sometimes it's nice to splurge.
 The Way Way Back was funny and endearing.

On Sunday, I organized the linen/pillow closet, watched a
 Jane Austen Marathon on television 
and ironed about 200 napkins.  Yay!  Party ready.

And on to the give-away, my friends!
has a fresh and lovely scent in our 
kitchen's sitting area...
and I want you to have one, too.
