PICTURES TO SHARE AND WINNERS TO ANNOUNCE

So wasn't it just a week or so ago that I said "On a clear day you can see forever?" Well it hasn't been that way for two days now. The fog isn't burning away until after 2PM. Just thought I would share this with you because I know you always want to know every detail in my life.


Of course being in Southern California we have flowers year round so I thought I would share some roses that where opening up on one of our trailing bushes.



So one day on Pinterest someone showed a picture of these, M&M Candy Corn, and I knew I had to try them. I am a fan of white chocolate and candy corn. (I didn't buy any candy corn this year because I can't stop eating them) These are really good in my opinion. They are pretty rich so you can't sit and eat the whole bag which is a good thing! Also they have pumpkin peeps this year and I wanted to show you my cute little candy corn tin. I don't just like the candy I like all things that look like candy corn too!



I recently had two giveaways and I wanted to share the winners with you.




The first one was over at Debby's Tree for a darling ornament. I decided to pick up another ornament and give two away. The winners are Saskia from Join My Joy and Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie. Congratulations ladies!







The second giveaway was for a book called Baby Dust by Deanna Roy which I was giving away on For Your Tears. I also decided to give away the book I bought for myself because I know that it's important for Baby Lost Mothers to read this book. The winners of these books are Amy at Keeping Up With the Schultz Family and Bree at 365 days of Evan.

Feel free to go over and congratulate all the winners. Also you can visit my other posts to read a little more information on the winners.




Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Hey Debby!
I love M & M's about any way they come, so I'll have to give those a try! Congrats to the winners of your giveaways! The "Baby Dust" book sounds like something I would enjoy! Hope you have a nice, relaxing weekend!

I saw the M & M's on Pinterest also. I want to try them, but I can't find them here. They look like they would be really good. Your roses are absolutely beautiful.

I love M&M's but hadn't seen the candy corn version. I'm not a big fan of candy corn, so I'll probably pass on them ... you can have my share. ha!

The flowers are beautiful! How nice that you get to enjoy them year 'round.

Congrats to the winners! Even though I'm still quite sure that the ornament would look best on one of MY trees. LOL

I love foggy days! I can hear the fog horns from the big ships and I love that sound!

I love candy corn and can eat tons but its almost pure sugar. I bought two bags but so far have not opened either one. Yay.
M&Ms: I just found out they have almonds and now you're telling me they have candy corn. yikes!
I love M&Ms.
congratulations to the winners.

That corgi :) said...

congrats to the winners! I haven't tried those M&M's but I did see them; I'm not much of a white chocolate fan (but love dark chocolate :)

It has been dreary weather, hasn't it? But I hear we are to warm up this weekend and it is definitely more sunnier today!

enjoy the weekend!

xinex said...

Those roses are gorgeous! And so is your view even with the fog. Congrats to the winners!...Christine

Heather said...

Wow! That is some pretty thick fog! I remember the fog from my trip to see my Dad & sister in San Francisco. It would be hot outside the city, but once you were there, you would need a sweatshirt because it got a lot cooler...with a lot more fog.

Your roses are amazingly beautiful! Thank you for sharing those with us!

Unknown Mami said...

I sort of like the fog. I think it's romantic.

Goose Hill Farm said...

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners! I noticed that on Pinterest too. So not cool!

Blessings~

Tonja said...

Loved those flowers! What glorious color! Oh, and the M&M's I have not seen any of those in these parts...I'll have to look for them.

Cany corn...love it!! Could eat the whole bag...so I don't buy it either. If I'mm gonna eat the whole bag of something...it is going to be CHOCOLATE!

nancygrayce said...

You live in the most beautiful place! I love the flowers and every time I'm out there, I am so amazed at them all!

My sister said she got some of the candy corn m&m's....I'm afraid to because I can't stop eating candy corn and even if something's rich, I can't stop!

secret agent woman said...

Lynn said...

When I was still teaching someone gave me two candles that looked like six inch high candy corn. I LOVED them just because they looked like that!!

Garden of Egan said...

I love your Kandy Korn stuff.
It is darling. Makes me excited for Halloween.

Yay for the winners. You are a sweet person for doing that.

Headless Mom said...

The roses are incredible!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

What great pictures. The roses I could almost smell. Have a wonderful week!

Katherines Corner said...

Emily said...

Wow, the fog at your house is really dense! That's incredible!

But at least you can stay inside with all those cute, little candies!

Ginny Marie said...

As much as I like living in the Midwest, I wish we had flowers year round! I also would love to try the M&M Candy Corn, but for some reason I couldn't find them. They sound yummy!

Laura said...

Great pics and I love the candy too! Will have to try them out!!! Also- I have never heard of that book- may need to give it a try. I just got done reading Sarah's Key and Winter's Garden so I may need something 'lighter' in between... <3

Joyce said...

The roses are gorgeous!

Nichol said...

That fog is horrible. I remember when I lived in FL this would happen from the sea, it was dangerous when driving. The flowers are beautiful and candy corn m&ms rock!

Nezzy said...

'Just give me anything chocolate and I'm gone!!!

I'm quite jealous of your beautiful bloomers...mine were bit my Jack Frost and died while I was in Texas this past week. It was a sad, sad homecomin'!!!

Congratulations to your lovely winners. Woohoo!!

God bless ya and have an extraordinary day sweetie!!!

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Hi Debby...M& M's are dangerous. I can't eat just a few. I love them. Totally love them. Candy corn not so much. A friend calls them pumpkin poop. ☺ and congrats to the winners.....

blueviolet said...

Your flowers are completely gorgeous! I can only eat about 2 pieces of candy corn. It's just too sweet for me, so I probably wouldn't like those M&M's.

CRY said...

oh my goodness, I love the pictures!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE FOG.
It is the best time to take pictures
i will send you a picture I took once in the fog

Kathy said...

I haven't seen any of those M&M's here! I'm a fan of candy corn, especially this time of the year :)

Congratulations to all of your winners.

Beautiful roses, different from any I've ever seen.

Chatty Crone said...

I see about ten of my friends on here and thought I'd stop by and check you out. Sandie

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

I haven't seen the new M&Ms!! I'll be stalking the local stores immediately! I'm not huge into candy corn - but my mom loved it. She would eat each piece in three bites - each color separately :-D

The rose is gorgeous! What is it called?

Libbie said...

I just love fog...we don't get it much here & it is just so mysterious :)

You are blessing others with those giveaways Debby! You have the biggest heart :)

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Congrats to the winners, just a little bummed ... lol

I'm so glad you loved the choc peeps. I couldn't resist putting some in your box.

Man I can't believe the weather lately. Love love the flowers!!

Kristin - The Goat said...

Loving the candy corn pics - or the candy corn color combo pics! I can't stop eating candy corn either. It's truly addictive.
