Fishtail Cottage Giveaway #1–Common Ground

I am so excited to share with you this post about my dear friend Debra.  Debra’s Blog is called Common Ground.  There are so many reasons why I love visiting Common Ground  ~ but one I want to mention is the gorgeous Vignettes she always shares!  The style and design Debra creates, I so admire and feel inspired to always change something in my own home after visiting Common Ground.  Here is just a peek at a few of my favorites. Click on the photo’s to be taken to the post.

Another blog that Debra shares with us is one called “A Day in the Life”…it is a blog dedicated to sharing her religious journey with all of us…It really is beautiful and inspiring to read.

Debra hosts a fabulous party on Friday’s called Vintage Inspiration Friday @ Common Ground.  Its where we all are able to share a post that is “anything vintage or vintage inspired” décor.  It is a fun party to participate in, but it is especially fun to browse and see what other bloggers are sharing at the party! If you haven’t linked up before or browse…please do so this Friday!!!! 

So two blogs and a party hostess ~ Debra also has an Etsy shop filled with some absolutely darling jewelry.  How does this woman do all this is my question? She is very inspirational, isn’t she? Debra has kindly offered this lovely handmade necklace (pictured below) from her Etsy Shop to one very lucky winner in celebration of Fishtail Cottage’s One Year Anniversary of blogging!  How nice is that?
