Just in Time for the Easter festivities

Ms Cora Bond and Ms Willie L. Dutton arrived yesterday and just in time to help us celebrate Easter on Sunday! Cora and Willie came from Suze Persechino's blog giveaway and they are just as cute as can be!! You can see them on her blog here: http://junquedrawerchick.blogspot.com/2009/03/march-giveawaymeet-ms-cora-and-ms.html

Thanks Suze! They are so wonderful!!

My giveaway - I'm convinced that I lost my camera cable somewhere between here and NYC so I'm going to have a CD made tomorrow. I've been dying to post the Florida photos and start the giveaway. In the meantime, I found a vintage ad for property in Florida that I will add to the goodies. So, c'mon back!


  1. Out of curiosity, would you want to do a post telling us a little bit about the add? It would be interesting to find out the date of the add and what the "going price" was then for property in Florida. Just decided to aks. I did't ask before since the ad is part of your giveaway. But I am so curious that I decided to ask anyway.



  2. Hi JD! For a 1/4 acre homesite in Rainbow Lakes Estates it was a TOTAL of "$595.00 complete. (No hidden costs.) Only $10 down and $10 a month. They are guaranteed high, dry and fertile." No swampland there! Oh yes, and they also came with "Mile-wide lakes, private sandy beaches with FREE country club privileges." The giveaway also has an ad from 1962 for a free Florida book.
