Around the World blog hop- View from My Kitchen Window


the view out my kitchen window, it's gorgeous in the spring
when all the fruits of my husband, Stephen's work is blooming
    Welcome to Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America (that's sounds like a Miss Universe contestant)! It is 55 degrees F at 4:00pm EST on this Saturday in November! I am participating in a blog hop with FORTY other bloggers that I met in an online class. If you follow the party it will bring you full circle around the globe and back to me. You will get to look out kitchen windows in various parts of the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Australia and New Zealand.  Some of them may show you their scrapping space but nope, not me, too much to do and in a knee brace using a cane is not my best cleaning mode. The blog party started at http://helenacreativemaven.blogspot.com , if you are already hopping you came to me from http://curlyscrapbooker.blogspot.com . When you leave me, I hope you will click on this http://mypixelatedoasis.blogspot.com/  which will take you straight from NC to Angela in North Dakota. Angela has a wicked sense of humor (so be sure to scroll down and read old posts), beautiful photography and will make you feel welcome in her kitchen..I think I can smell her pumpkin bread.

     In celebration of our travels I am offering a blog prize with a  $25 value -Travel themed scrapbooking supplies!  "Wow!!" you say...well, if you are a scrapper you do.."how do I win?"  If you leave a comment on this post you receive one raffle ticket, if you become a follower of my blog you receive 3 raffle tickets. On Monday one of my sons will pull a name to determine the winner. Wednesday I will be mailing the goodies somewhere in the world!  Check back to see where in the world it's going..maybe to your very own mailbox.
    I hope to see you here again, I am being pretty consistent with blogging lately and be sure to mark my next blog hop on your calendar -  Dec 1st, a dozen bloggers share sweet treats and recipes in a blogging Cookie Swap! Have a glorious time enjoying the view from our kitchen windows!

  4. Awww, you are too kind! What wonderful words you've written about me! I really like the way you explained the whole train, and your blog is not only filled with wonderful photos, but a great writing style as well! I'm so going to head over to your "follow" link so I would lose track of your blog as a treasure!

  18. I couldn't finish the Blog around the World last night - seems DH actually wanted some dinner! So here it is Sunday morning and I'm commenting on yours now. You have a lovely garden even when it's not in bloom. Hope your knee gets better.

  19. WOW...what a great view and you’re so close. The trees do really look different from mine and we're only about what three hrs away? I love the idea of a giveaway for followers. I only have one myself to date and just might have to try out your idea.
