Welcome to my blog! (3rd anniversary giveaway)

I can't believe it's been three years since I started my blog.  The time has flown by!   It's time for a blogiversary giveaway.  I'll chose the winner on August 1 and the prize will be customized to the winner.  All you need to do is leave a comment.
Below is my first post:
I have created this blog with the intent of meeting fellow corgi lovers, miniature addicts and nice people who appreciate simple things in life!

This has been my first summer of retirement and it has been wonderful!  I've spent lots of time searching through flea markets, checking out a 43 mile yard sale,  going to lunch with friends and family and taking afternoon naps.  I have managed to do some redecorating in my house, catching up on some sewing and working in my flowers, with the help of my  corgi girls.

I have a passion for vintage linens, old dishes and Susan Paley vases.  Susan's vases were made by Ganz and the collection was retired in 2006.  My daughter and her dear friend introduced me to Susan's work and I quickly became one of her greatest admirers.  Her lady vases are very cheerful and the colors are beautiful!  She is a very talented artist!
