Go Leave Some Blog Love- and Win Some Goodies

One of my favorite things to do in the mornings is catch up on all of my favorite blogs. One blog I really enjoy is Prairie Thistle Life, by Julie Pishny. I first "met" Julie through an online art group.

Julie lives in Kansas- for real- and has an amazing shop Gardenology KC with a few gal pals. This shop is all about women artists- and you gotta love that!

I am a mixed media jewelry artist, painter, photographer,
woodworker, gardener, fiber artist - former farmgirl,
now city girl, who wants to be a farmgirl again with
a chickens, a burro, and maybe a few goats!

Julie is a part of my Lyrical Interpretations swap, and I just love her style.

Julie has an etsy shop too, and she makes amazing handstamped metal stuff- and you all know how I feel about metal.

Please go and leave her some lovely comments. Then come back and tell me you've done so and I'll enter you in a little blog love giveaway. You'll have your choice from my stash- either scrapbook goodies or vintage goodies.

hugs- Lee
PS. I'll draw the name Sunday night, OK?

Wow tks for sending me over to her site. Love the stamped cuffs! and this book is amazing. Very Cool. I love the back brace she found. I would have a lot of fun with that, it has a real straight jacket feel to it. Perfect for a Halloween book.

Julie's blog is one cool site to see! The cuff and nest is great. The round robin art book is awsome to say the least, what a neat idea.

Hey Lee, you are such a sweet girl!!! I love the books you are working on, never done a round robin before and how cool are they? I left Julie a comment, her page with the skeleton is so cool and I love your wire figure, how did you come up with that?
Hope all is well...have you found a barn yet? can't wait to have our East Coast.....

Lee, I read about your give away on the Feathered Nest. I am so glad I did or I would have never found your blog or Julie's. They are both wonderful. I promise I will be back to both.

Lee, I loved the idea you used for entering this give away! I found out about it from Dawn of The Feathered Nest. I commented on Antique Plunder... and on Paul McCartney's Blackbird. It was a "win" just to read through several of Julie's posts!
