Peach Street Primitives 100th Post Celebration

Anyone who knows me knows I love art. Any style, any medium -- I love art. Jamie Lott, of Peach Street Primitives, is an American Folk Artist with a huge talent for making Original Primitive and Whimsical Folk Art. (Jamie also happens to live close to one of my favorite places, Savannah, GA. I'm so jealous). Jamie's art will delight you and she just so happens to be celebrating her 100th Blog Post with a giveaway of her original creation: Pip, aka Mr. NoName, an incredible Fae Folk Fella who will mesmerize you with his gaze. To see some fantastic art, meet the wonderful artist and have a chance at winning a great work of art see Peach Street Primitives over on my sidebar. One teeny weeny stipulation applies: if you shall happen to win then we shall have to work up a joint custody agreement as Mr. NoName will surely want a vacation now and then and I've got the perfect spot right here with me. Besides, I've already spoken for him and it's the only way I'll let him go!

Seven Facts You Might Not Be Interested In

Since I am new to getting a blog set up, not very much is known about me and obviously I am very slow at ever getting anything posted, I thought I'd have some fun sharing some things with all of you. When I originally planned on sharing this, some of what I wanted to include for "The Seven Facts You Might Not Be Interested In" I can not find my photos for at this time. So, for now, I am winging it with what I've found. The other "Facts," well they will just have to wait for another day...or the rate I go so I can locate my photos. "Seven Facts..." will be below this post as they are done. Stay Tuned....

At One Time I Was In:

The United States Army

I Use to Drive:

Tractors! and loved it.

I Have a Never Ending Passion For:


I Use to Work for:

Ford Motor CompanyAs a Parts Person
And at one time had all of their parts numbers memorized.

Years Ago, The Pug I Used To Have:

Always thought she was playing "Queen of the Hill."

Eeeks! I Use To Look:

Like This And This
And This

Now I am much older.

My Son Looked Like This:

At Two Years Old
This At Four Years Old and in pre-school(if you guessed the largest child at the far right you guessed correctly).
This At Nine Years Old (it's me on the right of him and I am 5 feet tall). Any guesses as to his size now? Well, there's my seven facts for now in my last seven posts. I'll be sure to be back and bore you again some time, some day, some month. Have a splendid day....

Finally, I'm At It Again (long winded , too)

This is now CLOSED. Thanks to everyone who joined in.

Once again, it's time for me to do what I love, give some things away. I am participating in a Random Act of Kindness aka Pay It Forward event, but this time with a twist of my very own. Read carefully and completely, We will see who's paying attention when the comments roll in. lol

The first part of my event:
The first 5 (five) people to respond letting me know they'd like to participate AND letting me know they want to host an RAK/PIF of their very own by posting this on their blog will: Get something made by me.

This first part of the offer does have some limitations and restrictions, so please read carefully.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2. What I make will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any idea what it will be. I will not give hints. It will be something handmade by me and will be a real tangible thing. It may very well be kooky or strange.
6. All you need to do, after you tell me you want to participate and host an event on your blog, is post this text, or similar text, on your blog and make 5 (five) things for the first 5 (five) folks who respond to your event.
7. I MUST have a way to contact you. Then after I contact you I will need you to provide me with your mailing address.
8. Please do not sign up for this first part if you don't plan on hosting an event of your own.


The Twist:
For the second part of my event anyone with an active blog can participate. I will be giving 10 (ten) other handmade items away (not counting the five above). Even those who are participating in the first part of my event can participate in this second part, too. It is very simple: if you want to sign up for part two all you need to do is leave a comment telling me three things. Your favorite color, favorite scent, and if you could be anywhere in the whole wide world where would it be? That's it, it's that simple...just tell me three things and have an active blog. This second part of my event will run until June 14th. You will need to sign up by 11:59 p.m. Names will be randomly drawn, and posted on my blog, by 9 a.m. Central time on June 16th as to who will be the lucky (or un-lucky) recipients of my ten "second part" gifts. I know that's a ways away, but necessary as I travel a lot and sometimes unexpectedly. Plus it keeps everyone on the edge of their chair for a loooonnnngggg time just dyng to know if they've won. Hee Hee, mean ain't I? What you will win is my little secret. If you are willing to chance that it just might be something you will like then join me in the fun and get your friends to join in as well. The winners will have 24 hours after their names are posted to email me with their mailing address. Mark your calenders and be sure to check back.

PLEASE NOTE: For the five joining in on the first part of the event, you DO NOT have to include this second part in your RAK/PIF event what so ever. This is just my own little twist to my event. When you post your RAK/PIF you will only need to include similar text to the first part of my event in your RAK/PIF. If you want to do more that's great. If you want to add twists of your own, that's great too. Most of all have fun. It's an amazing world out with a lot of amazing people and you just might be surprised who you meet.

Any questions at all about this event, or if it only seems as clear as mud, email me and I will respond the first chance I get and try to clarify things.
