Just some Stuff

Howdy!  I didn't have a scheduled post today, so am using this opportunity to
tell you about a blog hop "coming soon" and show you a few of my "kitchen garden" flowers!

First about the hop.
Die Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle have joined forces for a "cancer awareness"
blog hop to start on July 31st at 9pm and will end August 3rd.  
There will be a prize awarded
just for  leaving comments along the way.  

When in selecting my supplies, 
we were given a link to a calendar of different cancers
we could select to make awareness of.  
I chose the month of September, as I have known
someone with every one of those cancers.  I found the list to be very shocking!
I think the first thing we (I) think of when doing a cancer awareness is always breast cancer....
maybe because I have known many people 
that have survived this (and some not) terrible disease!

So please mark your calendars for July 31st - Aug 3rd and hop along with us!

I also wanted to mention 
that while leaving a DT duty comment today, 
I came across"THIS POST"....give it a read, 
and why not at least buy the digital to help....
it is so cute and very useful too!

These are just a few of my flowers in what I call
my "kitchen garden"....
this garden has all my herbs in it
which I love as I can just open the slider
and "harvest" what I need!

Have a great Friday!!

Your flowers are always SO BEAUTIFUL! You certainly have a GREEN thumb! Thanks for the info on the hop as well as Heather's cause ... I have purchased my stamp and thing cards made from it will be a great addition to my show card boxes! Happy Day to you ... now get outside and soak up some of that sunshine!

It's 71 right now and rainy...hard to believe it's July and it's not hot and humid. I'm looking forward to hopping with ya my friend!! I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July :)

Your flowers are stunning! I wish I had just a little bit of your green thumb :-). I'm lucky to keep any plant alive for long. Great write-up about the hop too! Thanks for doing it.

Your lilies are so pretty, Diane! I found a spot where I can plant some Asiatics this fall where the dogs can't accidentally trample them. They'll be nestled behind some pots. I'll be heading over to look at the digi for a good cause now. Thanks!
