It's the Little things ~ Giveaway

I love all the little things that make life sweeter. There are so very many of them if I only take time to stop and realize. And recently when I discovered these cute little dish detergent bottle aprons I knew they would brighten up my kitchen and make me smile when ever I see them.
Since I like them so well I decided that today I will be giving one away.



If you would like to have one of these all you have to do is leave a comment telling me one of the simple little things that help make your life sweeter.

For a second entry place a link to this giveaway on your blog and then come back and leave another comment telling me that you did.

I will be choosing a winner, using Random generator on Tuesday July 5.

Winner will be given the choice which of these two little aprons they would like to have.

Disclaimer: The only compensation I receive from doing this giveaway is the warm fuzzy feeling I get from knowing that someone else will get to enjoy one of these.

  2. I'll not be entering, though those are precious and so cute. One of my favorite little things is a multiple ribbon bookmark. This gift allows me to keep several places -- one for my daily reading, another for Wednesday night studies, still another for Sunday School lessons, with some left over for following pastor during morning services. Each reminding me to spent time with God's word. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to put that into words.

  4. My simple little thing is bible study. I try to do it daily and it always seems to show me something that I need that day or even for something I am going through. Thanks for the chance!!!!!

  6. One of the simple little things that makes my life sweeter would be all the wiggly, creepy crawlies my sons bring me as 'gifts'. I know they mean well and honestly think I will be elated to hold their worm or rolly polly. I try to muster a grin and thank them for being SO thoughtful!

  7. I don't need to enter, just wanted to say I've always loved these things too. I got a couple when we got married 20 years ago, and have used them a lot over the years. I just had my Mom make me a couple more, because I loved them so much. :) They do add a little something to the bottle of soap, since I leave it out all the time. :)

  9. A cute item my daughter made me is a cover that fits over a plunger. It's covered completely and complete with a ribbon and bow!! Since I'm overseas and we at times need it, it's nice to have it decorated and sitting in a corner in the bathroom!

  10. One of my favorite simple little joys (besides my family) is the fun we have watching our dogs and their silly antics. And the fact that they love us unconditionally.

  11. What simple little thing make my day is talking to my mom. Even if its just a little conversation.

    God bless,

  12. One of my favorite things this summer is a solar stick light I got a Walmart for $4.00. It has a clear round globe of cracked glass. I put it in a flower pot at my front door. It is so pretty and makes me smile.

  14. I do not have a blog but I would like to agree with the other comments. The Lord and who He is makes me smile. My husbands sweet little acts of love, my children's concern for me, the words and laughter of my grandchildren and the selfless friendship I have with my two best friends, all help me to smile all day long. I have to add a memory that makes me laugh and that is a comment my grandson, then 3 yrs old, said to me, "Grammy you're not old, you're perfect." :-)

  15. Those are too cute! ;)

    Along the same lines .. the little thing that makes my life sweeter is, believe it or not, aprons!
    I am addicted to aprons and cannot get enough of them! Wearing them everyday as I go about my work makes me feel so feminine and good inside. :)

    ((Hugs))

  17. Those are so cute! :)

    One of the little things I love is when I read a book and it completely transports me to another time and place. It is so relaxing. :)

  18. I love being outside first thing in the morning when it's still cool...all by myself, watering my flowers!

  19. Listening to my 3 year old son say his prayers.. Or when he knows he has done something wrong he will look at me with those big blue eyes and say "Mama I sorry I wanna make you and Jesus happy!!"

    ReplyDelete
  20. When my 2 yr old daughter looks at me, out of the blue & says "I LOVE YOU, Mama!" & my 17 month son comes running to me, just to sit in my lap & snuggle up real close.... They make me smile inside & out!

    And those dish detergent aprons look cute! I've seen them before but never had one.

  21. Aunt Esther has used these for decades; they always make me smile when I visit her. She's a Godly woman, age 93 and still lives on her own, is frail as a hummingbird but her spirit is large!

  22. My relationship with God , although it is not a little thing makes me happy, for true happiness does not exist apart from Him. I also enjoy my family, and the great outdoors.
    Blessings,

  23. I think one of the sweetest things is spending the weekends with my husband. Since we work opposite shifts (I work 1st and he works 2nd), we only see each other on the weekends...making our time together that much sweeter. :)

  24. A simple but joyful thing for me is cooking for my friends and family. I makes me feel so fulfilled to feed others something special.

  25. The smells of summer...grilling smells, campfire smells, after rain smells, pool smells...
    After a long winter the smells are wonderful.

  26. My morning devotions/Bible reading! My day is just not right without it!

  27. One of my favorite simple joys is a day off work. Even though I work part time, I liked being home even more so when it's my day off (even if I have nothing planned) it just makes me happy. Those dish liquid covers are way too cute, by the way, they remind me of when I was younger and women used to have those. ♥

  33. my simple little thing that makes my life sweeter is the big smile my son has when I get him from his crib in the morning. it makes the 5 am wake up a little bit easier!

  34. I find simple pleasures in opening up a jar of green beans or corn that I canned in a previous year...still as good as the day I canned it! What a sweet treasure that is!

    I also love the random I Love Yous from my family throughout the day...it saddens me that not all families are this way! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh to choose! I think the best thing is when my family is all together and getting along.

    Those sweet little aprons wouldn't work in my kitchen - so if I win, please bless the person before me!

  38. in that my 'hot flashes' overtake me much easier throughout our Southern heat, i really enjoy staying in my house and watching the birds compete over the birdfeeder
    they've kept me company while daughter has been out and about with her new summer job

    love it...so cute!

  40. The simple things that bring me joy are burning yummy smelling candles, eating sugar snap peas straight from the garden, finding money in the washing machine, watching hummingbirds drink from the feeder outside the window while doing the dishes, and sitting on the back porch in the evening with my husband while having a glass of iced tea.

    I'm pretty sure that was a run-on sentence, but I couldn't choose just one thing. ;)

  44. Those aprons are so cute! I love tiny baby feet, hearing the happy coos and gurgles from our wee one. Watching older siblings enjoy spending time with the baby. Can you tell I love having a baby in the family again?
