A Vintage Chic said...

Good morning, Koralee! As you already know, I LOVED your article in WWC! My middle daughter especially loved your photo with everything in the muffin tin---such a great idea!

You spread such sunshine and joy in all you do, dear friend...thank-you for sharing your gifts with us.

Wishing you the most lovely, peaceful Sunday with your sweet family...

(p.s. You don't have to add me into the giveaway, as I already have a copy!)

Magpie's Mumblings said...

For sure I will be watching for a copy of this - but Canada is slower at getting them, so I will have to be patient!

Two Shades of Pink said...

What is it about your incredibly gorgeous photos that make people so ridiculously happy? I can look at marshmallows and straws and smile for hours. And a porcelain muffin pan filled with treats that is too lovely to need words. I love how God has gifted you. Such a blessing you are. :)

mkirsch said...

Oh, I would love to win...you bring sunshine to the brown and white that is still hanging around outside!

The Garden Bell said...

I might just get back to cooking if I won. Ok, maybe not....he-he... I do actually cook but never so sweet. Baking and the whole measuring part has eluded me for so long. As you can imagine, I'm a throw it into a pot and go, with a little of this and a little of that. I probably have as many spices as I do colors of yarn. That CANDY NECKLACE for sure in the house would have been gone. I'll be heading to the book store this afternoon, just to have a peek. I'm sure to spot your pictures a mile away. Congrats again, my sweet Koralee.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

HERE I AM!!! But then of course, I would visit you several times a day even IF YOU were not giving something away. But to have a copy of this with your gracious and lovely photos, would be a dream. Oh dear one, your colors are outstanding. I have a better camera that I pulled out finally, after having lost it in the mess we had. I took some photos today, and clearly this camera is of better quality. Now I just need to figure out how to get rid of the yellow feel to the picture. Thank you sweet one for visiting me and wishing us well. We had so much fun this weekend! We are home now, settling in to rest up before the wild week takes over. Blessings to you, have fun, PLAY ALWAYS and I just adore you dear one!!!! BISES, Anita

Dear Koralee,

congratulations for featuring in a magazine. I´m absolutely impressed.
Your pictures looks so nice and springy - I love them. And the blue canisters are adorable - have you bought them?
Today I was at a wonderful french antique market and bought some little pretties. Unfortunately I forgot the chip in my camera so I can only show the finds. But next month I will be back there again.

Have a nice week,
Tanja
