Williams-Sonoma Herbal Swag Knockoff and My Blogversary Giveaway

I can't believe it, I am not only on my third Pinterest Challenge, but Wednesday is my blogversary! Scroll down to the bottom for more on that. Now back to the challenge. I saw this here.

I really loved the swag, but not the price tag. I grow lavender, rosemary and oregano in my garden so I just went out and picked some. I layered the different herbs until I liked the way they looked, then wrapped a bit of raffia around the top and hung it up in my kitchen. It doesn't quite look the same, but like it and I can snip a bit off when I need it. Fast and easy challenge and best of all it was FREE! Now I want to grow more herbs so I can make larger swags.

Ta Da!

Now onto the most important part of this post. It has been a whole year since I have been blogging. I started July 10, 2011 and feel like I don't know much more than when I started. But there have been some really helpful people out there who have given me a few pointers, now just to impliment them.

I know most people have a giveaway on their blogversary and I think that is a fun thing as well. So here goes. I am not sure what I am giving away just yet, but it will be fun. I am working on some fabric pins so you will get one of those plus a few other goodies. Check out the pins here. If you would like to be in for the drawing, just do one or both of the following, two ways to win:

1- Become a follower and leave me a message telling me that you are.


2- Check out my Etsy shop here and leave me a message telling me what your favorite item is.

Simple that is all there is to it. I will be choosing the winner July 17. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Mary Ellen. What I like about it is you don't have to run outside everytime you want to use some of your herbs, they are already hanging there in the kitchen.
