A sleek and sophisticated woman I worked with while I was in college once told me this:
A woman who will tell her age will tell you everything.
Or, was it “anything”? I can’t remember. But anyway, the point is…she thought it was in poor taste to share your age.
Me? I’m not sleek or sophisticated, nor am I ashamed of my age. Matter of fact, I proudly wear my grey hair and wrinkles.
I’ve earned every single one of them!
As I write this post (on Wednesday, August 19th), I’m celebrating my 55th birthday. There. Obviously I’ll tell you everything, right? Ha!
I’ve been showered with sweet cards, gifts, meals with family and friends, and many birthday wishes over the last two days. I am so blessed!
August is a big month for our family. HH, Fun Son, Handy Builder Dad, and I all have birthdays this month. (It can get a little crazy with all the leftover cake!)
To continue the giving, I decided to host a fun giveaway for my readers. My rationale:
Why not spread the giving fun on to you?
My three gifts to the winning entry:
Seasons of the South cookbook by Ginny McCormack (a signed copy)
Mix It Up tea towel
Don’t Strain Yourself kitchen tool bookmark
See? Nothing fancy. Just a few fun things for the winner to enjoy.
Ginny’s cookbook is packed with serene, southern pictures. It’s large with thick pages, and really more like a coffee table book. You’ll love it!
The tea towel and bookmark are from my shopping excursion after the Viking Cooking Class I attended last year.
I had planned to give away the tea towel and a bookmark all along. I know I’m slow at moving on with my plans for this give-away. You are such patient readers!
Here are the easy requirements for your contest entry:

Those of you who’ve followed along for a while know this is my first give-away. Now that I know how to do it (and how easy it is!), I hope to do this again soon!
What are some ideas for prizes you’d like to get in the future? Christmas napkins? Something I make for you, like a pillow, or a table topper? An interesting find from a
junk antique shop?
Good luck everyone, and thank you in advance for entering the contest. You are the best group of readers I could ever ask for! (God is too good to me!)
