Happy New Year & Monday Muse & Gift-A-Way!

As this year comes to a close, it's amazing for me to look back over this year and see how much I have grown.  My business has settled in a good bit from the first time the doors were open and every day I am thankful for the wonderful customers who visit and shop my small business, and truly all small businesses!  To all the customers and friends who shop every week or just once in a while that keep my doors open and I am so thankful for each and everyone of you!  I pray this year holds wonderful and exciting new endeavors and we can continue to share our stories! Happy New Year to You my sweet friends as we welcome 2013! 

On to My Monday Muse! AND this is the last Monday of the month not to mention the year!  That means a random guest will receive a very special something from Carter's Cottage the shop~ and it's a surprise this time!

I don't know what the electric feeling is when I see someone has shared a new use for something old!  I LOVE how Emma Kate of Painted Style uses this ol printers drawer for her amazing vintage ornaments!  And a vintage chocolate box, well I love that as much as I love chocolate!

I can't wait to see what you link up in 2013!

Here are the rules for My Monday Muse…

1.) Please feel free to share about a piece you have completed, restored, renewed, recycled, re-purposed, or anything that inspires you!  A dresser, a sign, a cloud, a picture, restaurant, house, or a person.

2.) Post a permalink (the link to the post), not the link to your blog or Pintrest.

3.) This party will close Sunday at midnight CST and I will choose my favorite and feature their piece on next week’s My Monday Muse.

4.) Please link back to My Monday Muse and visit others sharing their inspirations!  Grab a button from the right--->

5.)  Give-a-way links, links to Pintrest, and other links that do not fall into the above category will regrettably be deleted.

And don't forget, it's Gift-A-Way time! 
On to the party!

  3. When I initially left a comment I seem to have
    clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a
    comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!
