Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

400!

It's been pretty darn hot all across the country these past few weeks and it looks like the heat's going to continue for at least a couple of weeks more. So to celebrate the end of summer, AND to commemorate Mimi Sue's Cottage 400th post AND the two year anniversary of the mimisuescottage blog, I've decided to have a little giveaway.

What better way to beat the heat than by going to a nice air conditioned movie theatre? So a $25 gift card will be part of the package. Who ever wins will also receive a $10 gift card to their choice of Sonic or Dairy Queen for a nice cool beverage. Or whatever else 10 bucks will get you.Included will be an autographed copy of this adorable book. To be read in front of a nice fan with your bare feet up and a cool drink by your side.

A little sneak peak...







And some other cute stuff like handmade tags...

A vintage, summer inspired hand painted plate...


A few summer green labels...


Some vintage lace...



And a fizzy bath salt thing you can use in your warm or tepid but definitely not hot bathtub.



There will probably be a few more things thrown in. In fact I'm sure of it. So what you need to do to have a chance to win is, comment on any post between now and August 19th. Sign up to follow then let me know and you'll get another chance to win. On August 20th I'll draw some lucky name out of a hat, (or probably a cute vintage bowl).

So THANK YOU all for visiting my blog for the past two years and for all your lovely comments and emails. For your online friendships, your inspiration, recipes, the many adorable ideas that I copy, and the sharing of your lives with all of us. It's been so much fun!

Congratulations on 400 posts, wow your good! Love to win your wonderful prize. I've been thinking about you lately. Are you in the 1st ward? We trying to sell our home so we can build in that subdivision going in by the park, well see what happens. I'm trying hard not to get my hopes up. I think I'm already a follower, but I've double check to make sure. Congratulations!
