Bloggerette Sorority Give A Way............

    A big welcome to all the sisters who are now one in the Bloggerette Sorority, what a wonderful idea Karen, of Some Days Are Diamonds blog had when she formed the sorority and welcomed all of us who enjoy the fellowship we have formed through out the U. S. and the world.     What started out as a small idea formed in to a family of women who enjoy writing and of course taking pictures, sharing ideas, recipes, and craft ideas.  We all enjoy our families, sharing family pictures, and special occasions but the one thread that keeps us together is decorating our house that then becomes a home.

         I think most of us enjoy the vintage look, the cottage look or the good old country look in our homes  through this form of technology we can look in to each others homes and get new ideas and most of all  get inspired to try new and different ideas.        What fun we will have while on this venture and to celebrate the new formed sorority I would like to have a sorority sisters give a way.
              So now I can say you know the rest of the story.  I told you to come back and I would have another chapter to share with you, the treasures in the give a way are things that I have enjoyed.
  The picture of the roses is from a shop in the Sandusky Ohio area, the small silver frame holds a picture of a lady from another era, on her wedding day.   The vase holds one single rose that tells a love story and the angel sits in a special area of my home.  The bottle has a vintage look that I have enjoyed for ever.   All together they spell ( Give A Way ) 
       So from me to you .......  I would love to pull your name out of the basket next  Tuesday July 20th.and send my treasures to your home where they will find a new place to live.
   So on  behave of Karen and me Sharon K , I would love for you to leave a comment and please become a follower of Amelia Rose Cottage.    You will never know what the next chapter will hold in store for all if you do not come back and visit my little cottage.
  I will show you corners of my home, share special treasures that I find at that special thrift store and just dream about all the lovely places that I will visit as I get to know many of my sorority sisters through this wonderful world known as blog.
                                    Till Later
                                                   A Bloggerette Sister,
                                                       Sharon K
