Hi, y'all! I am way behind in taking part in
Vicki's amazing blog party and I apologize.
Life has been full.
But, I'm here now, with my giveaway and ready to tell you about me and blogging.
Jan Vermillion Thomason of
the Polka Dot Barn
and the blog, polkadotbarn.blogspot.com.
I started blogging several years ago thinking that I would use it as my personal diary.
And, I have used it that way.
I don't get every event covered
(I've been known to go weeks....... without hittin' the blog)
but when something funny, fabulous or rusty passes by me
I have to blog about it.
I let you see me at my worst,
I will entertain you with humorous stories,
I will show you amazing junk and antiques
(some I buy, some I simply photograph).
All the while hoping that you accept me,
and that you come to love me as I share my life with you.
I love Jesus Christ.
I adore my husband and three grown boys;
hoping that my sweet boys will always need
I adore my brothers and sister.
Nieces, nephews, sister in laws, cousins,
my dad and Ursula,
all very important to me.
I try to find joy in every situation,
sometimes after I throw a fit or cry in despair.
I love spending time in my studio, The Crack House.
(I'll be doing a blog post about it in the near future.
If you want to make sure you don't miss it,

the right hand column)
Creating and spending time with
my friends that create,
reading every single page of my art zines,
and being an mixed media hoarder
make me who I am.
Okay, that's enough, let's talk about THE GIVEAWAY!!
I am parting with two of my favorite vintage hats that I've been saving,
waiting for those perfect projects that will show off those beautiful
flowers and leaves!
THERE WILL BE TWO WINNERS!
To enter, simply leave a comment.
And if you want to have a second entry,
let me know if you're following me on Pinterest,
Twitter or my blog emails.
I'm supposed to close out my contest and draw for
winners on February 1st, but I'm extending my giveaway
to February 2nd and I'll draw for the winners
that following week.
I'm right in the middle of getting my house in order
and planning supper for fifty
as I get ready for my mom's memorial that will be held here.
After that I'll be able to get back to my blog. *happy feet*
I sincerely thank you for reading this post

I hope that you come back often to see what I'm up to.
