Darling Day

It's the 2nd installment of Darling Day! Yay!
First of all, I know I'm still new at blogging, but I felt it important to change my layout. I read a blogging tip that said not to use a dark's a little hard on the eyes to go from dark to light. I'm not faulting anyone for having a dark background, after all I had one but I found the tip to be useful and wanted to make an adjustment.  I stumbled across The Cutest Blog on the Block's site and found several backgrounds I loved!! I had to call my lovely sister to see which one she liked and we agreed on the first one that got my admiration.  Thanks sis!

I also saw something on their site I hadn't before.....Blog books! You can have your blog printed and bound like a book! And you chose which posts and how many pages.  I think this would be awesome for those who blog about their family, faith or well anybody!

Who doesn't like free stuff? Well over at The Shabby Chic Cottage she is hosting a Dayspring Giveaway!
A $50 gift certificate is to be awarded.  Go check it out and enter to win! I already know what I want....

Speaking of stores....wanted to share about a unique little spot in Owasso, Ok...Surcee.  Surcee is a home decor and gifts shop and while I don't get to go as often as I'd like, I adore it!  They always have fun, unique items! And even if you don't buy anything, it's fun to visit and the ladies are always friendly!  Here's some of their spring items....

I might need this little gal...she sure is cute!

And here's one of the items from their store that I use everyday!
The chalkboard sign!
I bought it almost 4 years ago to use at my wedding, in the welcome area.
Can't believe it's been that long!

Happy Friday!!
