Welcome Spring Lilla Rose Mystery Hostess Party

It's officially SPRING! Our daffodils have been blooming for a couple of weeks, the birds are singing, and we've enjoyed several warmer days with the windows open! Don't you just love this time of year when everything is fresh and new?
Lilla Rose wants to celebrate the official start of Spring by offering FREE Shipping today (3/20) through Saturday (3/23) on all orders of $20 or more! Now is a great time to order that flexi clip you've been wanting, or to pick up a pair of bobby pins, or a beautiful new headband.
Free shipping isn't the only special offer this week though! My friend Hannah and I have teamed up to bring you a fun Lilla Rose PARTY too! This is an online party and will run from the 20th - 23rd. But a party needs a hostess, right? And maybe even a door prize?

We have a very special hostess for this party, and we'd love to introduce her to you only we don't know who she is yet. :) We are going to have a drawing, and one of you lovely ladies will be chosen as the hostess for this party! That means that one of you will receive all of the hostess rewards for this party. All you have to do to be entered into the drawing is to place an order of any size through this link, and you will automatically be entered into the drawing!

The hostess will receive half price AND free items of her choice from Lilla Rose. Depending on how many people order during this party, she will eligible for 1-6 half price items and between $30 - $150 worth of free products!! Just think of all the beautiful flexi clips and other accessories you could get! Hurry on over and place your order today!

And just to add a little extra fun to the party, we are also adding a door prize! Any guests of this party who place an order of any size will be automatically entered to win a flexi clip of your choice!

For extra entries into the door prize drawing, share this Lilla Rose party with your friends and / or relatives via Facebook, Twitter, blog post, e-mail, word of mouth, or any other way you can think of.

You can receive one entry for every different way you share the giveaway, so be creative! :)

We also have one other special offer to give you for these next four days. Hannah and I are running our own special during this party and would love to offer any new customers* a Buy-3-Get-1-Free deal. Anyone who purchased 3 or more flexi clips during this party will receive a voucher for a completely FREE flexi clip of their choice (up to $16 value)! This promo is only good during the four days of the party though, so don't delay!

*Only new customers or those who have never received a Have-One-On-Us voucher before are eligible for this promotion.

A Feathered Visitor

Last week my sister happened to look out the window and saw a red, black, and white fluff ball on our porch railing. She excitedly called to me and asked what kind of a bird it was. Upon looking, I discovered that we had a Red Headed Woodpecker in our yard!

We love feeding and watching the birds at our house, and it's always exciting when one shows up that we don't normally see. We regularly have Downy Woodpeckers, Red-Bellied Woodpeckers, and Sapsuckers at our feeders, but this is the first time we'd EVER had a Red Headed Woodpecker. In fact, the only time I've ever even seen one is a few glimpses when hiking in the woods.

I tried to get a picture of this beautiful little bird, but the first time I tried it was really cold out, and I only managed to get a far away fuzzy shot or two before I gave up and came inside.

Our woodpecker friend may not have liked the camera, but this little lady seemed happy to pose for me. :)

The next day was a little warmer, and I tried again while I waited for the rest of my family to finish getting ready for church. Our fiesty little woodpecker is rather camera shy though, and didn't cooperate very well. He stayed away from the feeder completely at first and then he came down just long enough to swoosh by and chase off any other birds who happened to be on the feeder.

He was not happy about me being out there, and scolded me good from his branch on one of the trees. Finally however, he did decide to come to the feeder for a couple of brief visits, and I managed to get a few pictures. None of them are very clear, but at least I got a few to show he was really here. :)

It has now been just over a week since our feathered visitor showed up, and we've seen him out there every day. It's warmer today, so maybe I'll go try again to capture a good shot of this red, white, and black woodpecker.
