lucky clover giveaway hop

The four leaf clover is a universally accepted symbol of good luck.  According to tradition, each of the four leaves represent something:  the first – faith, the second – hope, the third – love and the fourth – luck.  Some other interesting facts about four-leaf clovers are:

  • Genuine four-leaf clovers come from the white clover plant.
  • Legend states that Eve carried a four leaf clover when she left the Garden of Eden.
  • The early Celts of Wales considered it a charm against evil spirits.
  • Children in the middle ages believed if they carried a four-leaf clover they would be able to see fairies.
  • For every four-leaf clover, there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers.
  • In a true four-leaf clover from the white clover plant, the fourth clover is smaller than the other three.

And now, this special “Lucky Clover Giveaway Event” could bring luck your way!

Now that we’re thinking spring, what’s not to like about a giveaway hop that puts a spring in our step and causes our mind to jump forward to spring projects?  Nothing, right!  So, when I was given the opportunity to participate in this hop, I jumped on board: Read more….

Kris Kristofferson

Paul and I recently had the pleasure of spending an evening listening to Kris Kristofferson play and sing many of the songs he has written and performed through the years.  It was an honor to watch this man perform at 80 years of age.

If you’re my age you probably remember Kris from his rugged, raspy voice and his bad boy image. Read more….

Winter Wonders Giveaway HopIt’s official!  Winter has begun!  And along with it, the cold, the early sunsets and depending where you live; snow.
