Pink Flower Photo: Tulip Tree at Magnolia Gardens

Pink Magnolia Blossoms Photo by Aquariann

I was tickled pink to discover tulip trees were blooming for my birthday last week! I knew the weather would be warmer in South Carolina, 600 miles south of Delaware (where my birthday plans have been snowed out many times over the years) but never dreamed my favorite spring trees would be awake the first week of FEBRUARY.

According to WhereTraveler.com, tulip trees usually start to bloom late February to early March in Charleston, SC. How lucky was I to celebrate my winter birthday with such beauty at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens?

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Jamberry Giveaway: Queen Anne Floral Nail Art

Jamberry Giveaway

With all the negative news these days, I'd like to remind my readers to stop and smell the flowers. Or better yet, wear them! I'm sharing half of my Queen Anne floral nail art sheet, plus an accent nail of White Romance with one lucky winner. Both designs are retired and thus more expensive to dig up than when they were readily available from a Jamberry consultant like mine, Janet Stoy.

If you haven't ever tried Jamberry nail wraps, read my Jamberry Nail Wraps Tutorial on my friend Katie's blog. If their product sticks with you, comment on this post and fill out the Rafflecopter to enter to win before February 28, 2017. Sharing the worldwide giveaway and following my social media accounts will also earn you extra entries and glittery glee from me. I will ship anywhere, but will be super sad if the winner's country won't allow nail stickers through customs so please check before entering.

After entering my giveaway, scroll down to find dozens more giveaways by fellow participating bloggers in the Keep Calm and Hop On Giveaway Hop! If you're hopping from there already and have a giveaway of your own to promote, I hope you'll add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky.

Flower Photo: Butterfly Birthday Bouquet

Happy Belated Flower Friday! I took the week off from blogging to flutter south for my birthday. The weather couldn't have behaved better - I was surprised to see bees and butterflies already enjoying flowers in Charleston, SC. It was tough to return to chilly temperatures in Delaware, but at least my parents-in-law sent me home with this beautiful birthday bouquet!
