Life:beautiful is dedicated 
to delivering the uncompromised message 
of the Bible with excellence in journalism, 
photography, and editorial and art direction 
in order to offer a world-class faith magazine 
that encourages us to change the world 
by beginning with the making 
of our own homes.

And that, I can't help but love.

While you are reading, 
you may need one
or ALL of these, 
depending on how long the maid takes to clean.

you can eat all of them, 
if you like, after all, 
it is:

And therefore, the calories don't count.

This tea is also heavenly--
I make it iced and don't share it.

This is one of those "coveted" 
Pier I Moss Bunnies on-a-stick
that you may have seen out and about in blogland.
I got one for me and one for you!
He's adorumble.

So, when your home is clean, 
you may want to plan some other things to do 
with your free time, 
and your family may be hungry at this point, 
what with you eating chocolate 
and drinking tea in front of them,
and these will help:

This is my set of To Do lists above, 
but you will be getting a new one, 
all wrapped up.

So Happy Spring to all and to all a Happy Spring!

I will use Random.org, and announce the winner on April 8th!

Blessings to you all as you make your house a home!!


  1. Well you can count me in, that's for sure. I'm already a follower. I'd love to have that magazine. And everybody has one of those bunnies, but me, so I need one, too. Tea and chocolate - ahhhh. There's no doubt my house needs cleaning. Could you throw a maid in with that? lol. You are so generous and sweet. I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

  2. awesome giveaway!!!! yes, yes, yes, please. all of it. LOVE the bunny. so stinkin' cute. great combo of items, very creative. :)

  3. The bunny is so cute. But the picture of that Coconut Cake, yummy!!!

  4. Please pick me...I just hopped over to subscribe to that beautiful magazine. I had never heard of it. Your giveaway looks yummy. I'm off to become a follower.

  5. I know that I would really enjoy the magazine and the chocolate, and I could save you the shipping charge. My family could benefit from cleaners that I don't worry about my kids drinking, or smelling up my bathrooms with fumes. The to-do, to-buy, etc lists would fit perfectly in my pocket-book by the looks of them. But most of all, I REALLY like that tray! It matches what I hope to eventually do in our dining room PERFECTLY. PLEASE, oh, PLEASE pick me!

  6. Your gift set has got to be one of the most thoughtful gifts I've seen.

    But that seems to be who you are!

    Just lovely!

  7. First off, I LOVE your cake plates!!! I don't have enough room in this house to display all of mine, but I have quite a few as well!
    The giveaway is wonderful, I have never tried that cleaner and have been wanting to switch to something "green". I have never heard of that magazine, but even if I am not the winner, I will be investing in a subscription! How great is it that it combines so many of my favorite things, all in one magazine! The rest of the giveaway looks great, too. One can never have too much chocolate!
    And of course you know that I am already a follower!
    Thank you for the opportunity! I hope you get buckets full of new followers!;)
