Your East Toledo Blogger said...

I am so fascinated by all the BEAUTIFUL pink, country, cottag-ey blogs I've run across today!
I started out at Shirl's Rose Cottage,
(which I now ADORE -,
found during a search for the "Nights in Rodanthe" movie, beach house,
& from her links, ended up at your place!
Talk about inspired!!
I have decided to paint my bedroom BLUSH PINK
& to start collecting beautiful feminine rose trinkets.
I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win any of the lovely packages shown,
or even just one thing in any of them!
I've posted a link and some pics at my blog(s)
& would have done it even if it weren't for the contest
..because this is me,
deep down inside,
under all the dirt from the garden,
& rough exterior..
I am a little pink, half-bloomed rose
with light-reflecting, delicate trinkets surrounding me.
I AM shabby country chic.
Thanks for helping to bring it out in me!

Love, Robin
& Blogger's:

,all at,
