A cute plant and a lovely little giveaway ...

Over the weekend we celebrated my Mom's birthday, and I created a cute succulent terrarium for her gift.  I'm sure you can guess where my idea came from ~ Pinterest of course :)  

Terrariums are one of the hot items I've been seeing plastered all over Pinterest lately, and I very was happy to have a reason to make one of my own.  And despite the fact that I have a black thumb, I think it turned out great!    

Now onto a lovely giveaway I'm hosting for my blog sponsor Angie from Snack Cups and Smiles!  She is giving away two $10.00 Target giftcards, and a free  200 x 150 ad spot on her blog for one month!  

Looking Ahead:

 If you participate in Wordless Wednesday be sure to stop back here this afternoon anytime after 12 PM US EST, and link up!   I love to see what you all have to share each week :)

 Thursday I have designated as my day of the week to reveal some things about myself that you may not know by just reading my blog alone, in my post titled "The Girl Behind the Blog".  This week though I will be taking a break from this post to bring you a story from Heather, a cancer-survivor, which will tug at your heartstrings, and will remind you what a gift life is. This is a truly phenomenal story!    

 If you love blog parties like I do, I also host a NO RULES Weekend Blog Party beginning Thursday afternoons.  This is a fun one, because you can share anything you like!  I want to shout out a GIANT THANK YOU to all of last week's participants! You help to make the party a huge success! 

 And I always have some fun things to share in between!!
