FFF And A Fun Giveaway!!!

This is a picture of my nephew, Bobby.  Isn’t he handsome??!!  He’s serving in Afghanistan right now.  When this picture arrived via email, we told our kids that Bobby just bought his first house…this was all he could afford on his soldier salary!  My kids all felt so bad for him for living in such a sad little stone home! 

It’s nice to see that our military men and women can have a little fun despite the situation they are in right now!


And now on to the giveaway.  In honor of our Peter’s second Forever Family Day(yesterday), I am giving away the following items from my Etsy shop to one lucky follower!

socks-winter 578

Your choice of a crocheted beanie hat in red(fits toddlers to teens) or white(fits 6-18 months) with an adorable Valentine’s Day hair bow clip…your choice of two hair clips.

First of all love the picture of your nephew! I can't wait to show it to Dmitry. God Bless and protect him and all that serve.

Now, You are the queen of the giveaway!! I love the hats, but what really calls my name is the zebra and hot pink socks because I know Sophia would LOVE them!

Kim & Dave said...

What a great picture of your nephew!

& yes, I will continue to pray for the men & women serving in our military.

I'll be back later today to enter your give-away!

Gardenia said...

I'm lifting up in prayer your nephew Bobby and his fellow soldiers -- they do awesome things for us all, and deserve our thanks. Your giveaway is AWESOME, I can't believe all the beautiful things you are giving away. And I have to have that red hat for my girlie!! it is beautiful. Of course, I'm already following you, and my favorite item on your blog is ... those out of this world brown crocheted cowgirl boots. incredible!

Amy said...

God bless your nephew and all of our soldiers and their families.

I am already a follower of your blog. I love your hats and clips. My daughters love their socks. I will be back to leave a comment after checking out your storefront.

Amy said...

I LOVE all of the new things you have added. My favorite is: The Sweetest Set Includes Cupcake Applique Shirt AND Matching HairBow AND Ruffle Socks PLUS A FREE Skirt. That is such a cute set. I hope I win your fabulous giveaway :)

Unknown said...

Very nice pic of your nephew!!

Wow those are some nice socks and bows and hats you are selling a etsy addict...I love the zebra socks....I REALLY need dinos socks huh? lol

my email is

Spudsnsalsa said...

We pray every night for the service members in harms way! Will be sure to add your nephew by name.

I already follow your blog! I personally like the applique t-shirt sets on your etsy site (even though Julia would want me to choose the cowboy booties) I'm thinking in their size category though! My Mari loves to wear hats so if we win I'd need a TEEN+ (wide Guatemalan head!!) sized hat! You could split me with another winner too (hint, hint) since I wouldn't need the socks or hairbow....wait, then again I could maybe pair them with one of my outfits to sell on eBay for the food baskets we send to Mari's first family! OOOoooo I finally get to enter a give away! I'm so excited!!! The plate of goodies doesn't hurt either (:

Chris and Sarah said...

I FOLLOW!!! AWESOME, AWESOME giveaway!!! I will post it on my blog later.


Chris and Sarah said...

OK, forst I have to say it is totally impossible to pick one favorite thing when I want 1 or 2 of everything you have. I will say that I love, love , love the Precious Valentines Day Sparkling Hearts Beaded Socks.

Guess what? When I get some God money I'm getting some of your socks to put im my shoeboxes for next year. I can't wait to come pick some out =).

Leah Maya Benjamin said...

I do love that your nephew has a sense of humor, too funny! I will ahve to go back to your etsy shop again but I agree with soem of the others its hard to choose.

Leah Maya Benjamin said...

WOW Lynda I apparently haven't been at your etsy shop often enough, you have added so much more stuff and I love it, and you are so right you have great prices. Now I would pick some of the hats or hair clippies but then on almost the last page it would have to be the Hello Kitty sox becasue that is Maya's latest love.
what a fantastic giveaway! I can tell we are all very excited. gretsky4 at
