Hi Linda! Happy Birthday to you Mom from up here in Michigan. :-) I love the photos. There seems to be a lot of family resemblance going on there. ;-) I hope the birthday was a wonderful time for you all.

Thank you for having such a lovely giveaway. I went to CSN and tried to find one I really liked and there were a lot I really liked. Oh dear. So, I think I'll just go with this one:
International Concepts 30" Double Pressback Barstool (Medium Oak) w/ Swivel - 513-4 That is a difficult choice to make.

I'm just on my way to bed tonight, so tomorrow morning before I have to leave, I'm going to post about your giveaway on my blog. I'll let you know when I do. Thanks again for having this great giveaway.

Enjoy the rest of your visit with your Mom. I hope all is going very well.

Hugs from Michigan,
Susan

You know I've never shopped at that site before but it looks like it has neat stuff. I've seen other blogs offer gift cards to their site, too, so they are generous as well, LOL.
