Last week's winner and...
September giveaway #3 -- vinyl chalkboard designs by Charlie Chalk!

Before I announce last week's giveaway winner, I have to share that this post is #800! Wow! Thanks so much to all of you who visit me here from time to time. I've been blessed by your comments, am thankful for the friendships that have blossomed, and wish we could all meet one day! Thanks for visiting my little world here in Dole Valley.

And now for the winner of last week's giveaway...

Congratulations, Shara!! Please send your email address to me at, and I'll send your new knitting patterns right away -- happy knitting!! :)
I am really excited about September Giveaway #3 which is being sponsored by Charlie Chalk Designs, a mother-daughter team of chalk enthusiasts!

Started a few years back by mom Pattie (a sweet friend with the gift of encouragement, by the way) Charlie Chalk Designs has quickly grown into a profitable home business for her and her married daughters Lisa and Jamie.
Chalkboards by Charlie Chalk (TM) Designs! Plan the perfect wedding...Organize your home....We are Your specialty shop with incomparable chalkboard designs to organize and personalize your wedding or event, and your home or office. Fast shipping, excellent service, and a large variety of unique designs to choose from!

For this week's giveaway, the gals at Charlie Chalk are offering one of you $25 to spend in their shop w/ free shipping, of course! Here are a few of my favorite items... Giveaway details are below!!

These are so cute (owls!) and would work on any type of water bottle...

Since it's back to school time around here, here are a few of my favorite labeling ideas...

Wine charm labels, herb jar labels, and labels for the pantry...

And lest I forget, Charlie Chalk also sells quality chalk markers and has a vast assortment of labels for weddings and events, too! I personally have the wine charms which I just love using and have Charlie Chalk labels on many of my bulk herb containers and other pantry items as well. (I'd share a picture, but theirs are so much prettier!) :)  I've even successfully used them to label freezer containers. The chalk marker easily wipes off with a damp cloth, so each label can be used again and again.
