One World One Heart Blog Event

CLOSED. Heidi # 142 from Digital Misfit is the winner of the door prize.

It's that time of year again peeps, time to wing our way around the blogosphere. Stop in and look around. Introduce yourself and say something about each others blog. A worldwide event to bring us bloggers a bit closer and to share a piece of each others hearts.

Lisa over at A Whimsical Bohemian has generously hosted this event each year and this will be the fifth and final year. So please try to visit as many blogs as you can, and please visit HERE to read the rules about this event and a link to all the fabulous blogs all ready to be visited.

Here is a bit about what we are doing :

"One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy."- Lisa

Last year there were hundreds of blogs signed up you could visit and I got to a few hundred but could not make it to every one, this year I have a personal challenge to try again.

Sooo please look around my humble blog, I took a bit of a break from posting for awhile, but I am back.
My blog generally deals with our life out here in the woods. We have 4 Jack Russells, and there is my husband Larry and me, Diane.
We live in a house the two of us built and we try to live as richly and frugally as possible.
I am an artist and I also design and create jewelry. I love to cook, although I am a low carber mostly now. We also have a garden every year and I grow in my greenhouse also.

For my fellow bloggers I am sharing a chance to win this necklace, "Have a Little Heart"... thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment about my blog to be entered for a chance to be picked by random number generator. Please be sincere in your comment, and please do not cut and paste the same "hello, I like your blog, bye" comment on each blog.
We be VISITIN' don'tcha know.
Oh, and if your contact info is not active on your profile, leave it in your comment....let the winging around commence...


  1. Hi Diane,
    Thank you for stopping on by my blog "The Year of the Cats" and saying hi. I am really looking forward in getting to know you better. I also am very interested in living as green as possible and I adore J.Russell terriers. How wonderful you're living in a house with your husband that you created. Your giveaway necklace is just gorgeous, so please do enter me for the chance to win please. And I must stop by your Etsy shop, as I see a few pieces that are definitely calling to me ;)


  2. Okay, jeez.
    I am a LITTLE drunk, maybe. I think we will be friends because I got your email and it cracked me up.. but you know, after wine and all of these typos, it doesn't take to much to crack me up.
    You let me know - if I am coherent, we'll keep messaging and send one another stuff.

  3. Greetings from Virginia, US. Lovely necklace. Thanks for your giveaway. Please feel free to check out mine.

  25. Hi Diane! Pretty pretty necklace! Your blog is a kick! Come visit mine too!

  26. The first year I participated in OWOH I went from blog to blog in a crazy fog. So many to visit and I had to see them all. Now I am selective and go at a slower, more enjoyable pace. I looked at yours because of the great name of the blog. Can visualize your place perfectly as a result. Love the necklace. It was crafted with great care.

  152. Hi Diane, so nice to get to know you! We have a lot in common. I live down a mostly dirt road with no sign, have a greenhouse and live in the boonies only I'm in Indiana. Thankfully the pigs are gone... peeee-uuuuu!!

    I've got one pet peeve about this introduction thing. Many of the participants aren't telling us their name! (but not you ;) ) Glad to meet ya Diane! I'm doing a bit of the pet peeve you've got and that's copying and pasting. But I'm only doing it for my closing... forgive me. I tend to write a book anyway. I am enjoying the blogs I'm able to get to, but I spend so much time on them that I'm moving kinda slow. Did you know Lisa is having a new version of this next year? Go check out her blog again if you didn't know!

    Won't you please come and sign up for my give away, too? I also will be having another giveaway on my blog after the OWOH that you might be interested in... tune in :)

    Happy Creating!
