1st Day of the Last 2 Weeks! Day 16

Welcome to the first day of the last two weeks! I hope everyone is doing much better than I am. Today's giveaway is going to be a surprise, I sure hope you don't mind. I tell you what. I thought I had more pictures taken of the giveaways gifts. But I don't. Guess I better get on the ball and get busy taking photos.

But that will have to wait until later today as I have 1-1/2 hours to get this post written and posted, take a shower, ans get out the door to go teach some ladies how to make jewelry.

I am teaching the fellowship ladies group of the other co-grandmother's (the other grandmother to my two adorable and handsome Grandsons) church. They gather every 2 weeks and have some sort of craft day. This week is jewelry and we will be making earrings and a bracelet. I am really looking forward to this as that is what the 29-Day Giving Challenge is all about. It is about giving of yourself for 29 days. It doesn't have to be monetary items, it can be a hug, or opening the door for someone, or a warm smile, a phone call, or so many, many other ways to brighten the day of someone else. But I chosen to do 29 days of giving via my blog as I do not get out of the house very often, due to my health. And besides the things I do on top of my 29 day of blog giving is just an extra added bonus.

A HUGE Thank You to all of you for your wonderful answers to my questions. You have given me so much to think about and so many wonderful questions to ask. It has been great fun getting to know all of you. And I look forward to learning more and getting better acquainted with each and everyone of you.

And because I don't know yet what today's giveaway will be exactly this one is open World wide.
I have been getting so many entries from around the World and loving that I am. Thanks everyone.

  1. thanks per avermi avvisata sono felice di partecipare ancora... a qualche premio ciaoo rosa dall'italia

  2. I don't know if it's a GOOD question, but I've often wondered why you are The Purple Lady. It always sounds to me like something from a folktale- the Garden of the Purple Lady, Sir Gawain and The Purple Lady, something like that. Very poetic! So I'd like to know the story behind it.

    I will be sad to see these giveaways end-because oh, no! What if you stop posting so often? I've gotten used to a Purple Blog every day-- spoiled, spoiled, spoiled!
