I WON !! A necklace and I have an apple.

For the last 2-3 weeks I have been entering "giveaways". Gardening and doing around the house is kind of hard with your fingers crossed, but it's paid off. I won a Sterling Silver Zodiac Dog Tag Necklace !! Retail Value 96.00 Now how cool is that? I was googling around one evening and searched "frugal". Which led me to a site that does reviews and product giveaways for alot of childrens' type booty. But there are some adult items too.

Then I hit a link to another review site, entered a few giveaways, by leaving comments and visiting product websites and commenting on what my favorite item was other than the one featured.
Which led me to....Katie, her site the-giveaway Has some great product reviews and awesome swag (I just learned that term).

I admit I was skeptical, Oh me of little faith (not really I actually have a tremendous amount)I've never won anything on the internet. I've won a few times on the lottery (always 180 or less) But never a piece of sterling jewelry.

I picked "Libra" for Larry. I'm wearing it, but it's his birth sign. I am a crab. I love crabs, to eat, to watch, but not to wear.
So now for about 20 minutes before I go to bed I sit and peruse giveaway sites. One leads to another and it's fun to enter and even more fun to actually win.

I will be posting here and there about other product review sites and giveaways I'm entering so you can enter too. But be sure to check out Katies' site.

I love finding plants whose seeds I forgot I planted.
This little guy has been hiding in a tray of flowers that I started some weeks ago. I was doing some transplanting and saw it. An apple, a cameo apple I was eating one day and pulled out a seed and stuck it in with the flower seeds to see what it would do.


  1. Congrats on the necklace, how pretty! :)

  2. I'm excited you entered my Bugaloo shoe giveaway! It is the first one I have done. Thanks!
