Winners and Another Giveaway!


Is it Wednesday?
Ha!
Last night, about midnight, as I was rolling off over to get off of my sore shoulder, I realized 
that I forgot to blog.

Apologies.

And the winners are......

Anke!  You win:


Celeste Kenny you win:


Please email me at jayme.goffin@yahoo.com to claim your books!

Now - another giveaway - again, all you have to do is leave a comment - let's see - answer this question - what is your favorite flower?

I will pick TWO winners - and you each will receive a Spring Chicken Skin Serum and a lip balm.
I seriously could not live without my skin serum.  I'm sure you will love it too!

Anti-Aging 'Spring Chicken' Skin Serum
Yes, that is me in that bathing suit.  I grew up two blocks from Lake Michigan, I was there everyday in the summer!
Please note that I no longer add the chicken charm - it's adorable, but it caused me to have to sell the serum for more, and I got them from Thailand.  Just didn't sit right with me.

Again - it's with heartfelt thanks to all of you for being so gracious, encouraging and faithful readers here.
I appreciate you all so much!
Next week is yet another giveaway!
It will be something that I've made....I think you'll love it!

    I have many flower favorites . . . difficult to choose one. I think I will choose Crocosmia for today, it is beautiful in the gardens and also as a cut flower for indoors. It grows wild like in Ireland . . . and the orange color is so stunning!

  12. The goodies just keep on going! Awesome.

    I'm a pansy type of person. However mine never took off last fall and I'm pretty sure they are going to be dead when the snow is melted off.

    How to choose a favorite flower? Are you nuts? Just one? IT can't be done...I tell ya.

    I always have to have Blue Salvia, zinnias and geraniums, dusty millers and vinca vines.

    ReplyDelete
  21. So many beautiful flowers...the colors, the design. But I am drawn always to the Portulaca. So delicate. So mysterious in its flower opening and closing...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have two bushes of gardenias and each year the blooms get larger and larger. I LOVE the smell!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the flower on a rattail cactus. This is a very rare plant but the flowering comes if it is happy. A little prettier than a Christmas Cactus

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dandylions are my favorite flower, picked by little hands and presented to me along with a great big hug. Then placed in mis-matched glass jars and lined up along the kitchen window-sill. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Daisies, such a happy flower, just can't be blue when I have a vase full of daissies sitting in the middle of Grandma's old oak table.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Zinnias! A mason jar full of them makes me so happy!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have several favorites but the ones that put a smile on my face are Pansies cuz they look like they're smiling back!

    LOVE your skin serum and I'm about out so crossing my fingers on this. Haven't tried the lip balm but I'm sure it's equally as good! (And I use a lot of lip balm living out west now)

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite flower is sweet peas! Love their smell, the dainty bloom and the colors. Did you know that you are suppose to plant your seeds on St. Patrick's Day? That's what I have always heard! So I'm stopping to pick some up tomorrow when I go shopping. Here in Northern Illinois there is still snow and I've been known to push the snow away to plant the seeds. (but I might wait till next week, hopefully the snow will be melted a little more) They need the cold weather to start off with. Would love to win your serum or lip balm. I've read your blog for a year or so and you totally entertain me! Keep up the good work,

    Nancy G

  35. Peony, no question. Also love tulips and delphiniums and and and but peony is the winner. Luckily they are easy for me to grow, unfortunately they don't last as long as I'd like. Oh yes, like anon said, sweet peas. They smell so good, or they did when I was a child and my dad grew them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Favorite flower is peony! My mother had 5 large bushes inher garden in a suburb in Chicago. I love that smell!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Irises are my favorite! They are so fragrant! And beautiful!

  40. It would have to be zinnias. You get so much in return for so little work planting them. I really love all flowers - they soothe my soul!

  41. Wild daisies have been my favorite. I would always pick one from a field I would walk through to get to town. I'd pass by my boyfriend's work, so I would leave one on his car, that was my way of saying hello. He is my husband now. Yeah, its always been daisies. It was the 70s..what can I say but...Flower Power!

    1. Peonies are they most fragrant flower of spring/early summer. They are my absolute favorite. I treat myself to a new variety each year and now have 8 different colors/varieties.

      Thank you,
      Cheryl

  45. Jayme,
    You're tough! Asking us choose only one!
    I have to vote for peonies!
    But pink roses.... gardenias (for their intoxicating fragrance), pansies (how could one not smile at the sight of those happy faces?) and hydrangeas (oh, if only we could grow them on the Gulf Coast!)
    I am on bottle #2 of your serum and I agree... it is wonderful stuff!
    So glad you are "back". You make my day!
    Susan

  46. It took many years for him to remember but my hubby knows I love old fashion pink roses! They just are beautiful! I love your serum! It works miracles!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My most favorite flower would be the peony...and not just any peony, but the one that comes in cotton candy pink. Now since so many others also mentioned the peony, I'd also like to suggest pink and purple lupins swaying in the warm June breeze. They also give my heart a lift.

    (far from me to try to sway your decision here, but hands down your best answer came from Jill!!!_

    ReplyDelete
  48. Definitely peonies. I love the way they look and smell and they are wonderful cut flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite flowers are camellias!

  50. Hi Jayme,
    I recently signed up as a member after following your blog for about a year. I know right, procrastination runs in my family. Anyhow, I have really enjoyed it and decided to come out of the woodwork to support you. I'm glad you've decided to continue blogging. I am anxiously awaiting the day when I plant my Dishplate Dahlias. Unfortunately it's way too early. Maybe I'll post pictures on my blog when they are blooming!

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favorite is zinnias. I try to plant enough to have a fresh cut bouquet in the house every week. Would love to win the serum and lip balm! Have wanted to try it for quite a while.

    ReplyDelete
  52. so many flowers, so little time but I just love me some daffodils. Nothing screams more than daffodils in spring after a snowy New England winter!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congrats to the winner and I will testify to how wonderful your serum is...and how long it lasts! xo Diana

  54. Love your blog. Would love to hear your weight loss story. Maybe I haven't gon far enough back.
    Favorite flower is a yellow rose.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My favorite flower is a tiger lily :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just love SUNFLOWERS...they always make me smile when they stand so tall!! In the pink when the peonies & roses are blooming...oh my just to hard to pick just ONE favorite when they are ALL so beautiful!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  57. ZINIAS!!!They stand strong and tall and each flower is a suprise, so many different colors and shapes easy (& cheap) to grow too! they may not be fragrant but with Sweet Alyssum at their feet and Angel Trumpet as their neighbor......well nuff said.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well Jayme, The Coop Keeper, I love purple flowers of all kinds, any kind. Right now Grape Hyacinths are blooming in my little flower bed and just a couple of weeks a go I had a few purple crocuses too. But my all time favorite, although not purple, is the Daisy. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love all flowers and it's so hard to to pick. But I have to say I buy tulips and sunflowers a lot from Trader Joe's. My all time favorite smelly good is from the hyacinth just can't get enough of that. and the hands down backyard flower is the Zenia.
    I wish i lived a little closer because I would love to come to your sale. You and your chickens and your house and garden are so fun.
    Thanks,
    Karen

  60. I would love the Spring Chicken Serum! Lordy, I need it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Lilac bushes!! I love their heady scent, their soothing soft lavender shade, and because they only bloom once a year, their precious time on earth -- just like the rest of us :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. And I meant to leave my name..no its not lilac, it's Kathy C. :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow that's like asking which is my favorite child! Tulips, lilacs, hyacinths love them all but they are so fleeting. I guess hydrangeas because I can enjoy them for so long!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Columbine! They look so delicate...like fairy flowers. And Cosmos! Looks like a child's drawing of a flower! Can't wait for spring!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. That's a tough one. Anything pink, but if I have to narrow it down....peoney (is that spelled right?) and roses.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh Jayme Lou, it's been to long. We sold our home and I have been crazy busy packing and looking for a place to move. So relaxing to run into your blog, kind of like going home to visit my Mom. OK, I'm going to enter the contest! LOL! Favorite flower, that's a hard one. I love the" Lily of the Valley" because that is what the Bible calls Jesus. I love the aroma, it smells almost like a Lilac. You can pick a little bunch of them and put them in the tiniest vase and put them on your desk etc. I love giving a bunch of them to someone and watching there face when they breathe them in. Did you ever hold them up and look inside at their tiny yellow stamen that looks like a bell clapper? I have a tree in the back that is encircled by them, the pretty green leaves are rolled up when they push their way out of the ground, and then I keep watching for those sweet little fragrant bell shaped flowers to appear. The best thing is they just keep appearing year after year.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love 'em all but forget-me-knots were my grandma's favorite and hold a special place in my heart!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love Moss Roses - all that hot pink, orange and yellow. I can't get enough!

    ReplyDelete
  69. My favorite flower is the orchid, but for the life of me I can't keep them alive and I've tried numerous times. 3 ice cubes once a week, filtered sunlight...I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I keep buying them, and eventually killing them. I'll never give up!

    ReplyDelete
  70. My favorite flowers are hydrangeas. I am so in love with their big bragging blooms. I have multiple bushes in my flower garden and never tire of them!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love your blog! My favorite flower is a pink peony. Makes me smile every time!

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favorite flowers are hydrangeas and roses, but my favorite flower to grow in my garden is zinnias. So easy to grow and so colorful. Love them. I hope I win! I've been wanting to try your serum for ever so long. I think it would be good for my aging skin. Love your blog! Pick me! Mona @ peaceandquiltls@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  73. Cosmos or hollyhocks or lilacs or pink roses or.... jayme, I love flowers!

  82. Well Law Dame Jayme, I cannot think of one favorite flower. I think I will say Coral Belle (since that's the name of my new camper!) and she is my favorite thing right now. Gosh....if I only had one flower that I could live with.....hmmmm.....foxgloves maybe like on Beatrix Potter where the bee goes into the foxglove....or poppies maybe...like in the wizard of oz....I know...I just remembered! Daisies. Love 'em!

    What's your favorite Jayme? Do you have just one?

    Cindy Bee

    (but seriously, I just couldn't live in a world without more than one flower!)

  83. Picking one is tough but peonies are a favorite of mine:)
