A Friday Giveaway

Happy Friday Friends! 

I was hoping to get this giveaway post up a little earlier in the day, but we had a lost turtle emergency. 
Let me explain... my Dad raises Desert Tortoises (and has for as long as I can remember). Well, Mr. Robbie left the back gate open the other day and Speedy, (our very old man turtle, whom we believe to be in his 80's) took off out the back gate and was found a few streets over.

A dear, kind woman found Speedy and took him to a friend's home who raises turtles. To make a long story short, after exchanging hands several times and traveling through six cities and over a 30 mile radius. Our Speedy has been proven to be, apparently not slow at all. I found myself driving at 6:00 a.m this morning (with a sleeping two year old in the backseat, who was not too happy to be awakened that early) to meet a 4th grade teacher who had been safely keeping Speedy until his owners were found. Well, thank goodness, we were found!  

Thus, leading to this late, but still Friday giveaway post! 

Lately it seems I have been blogging quite often about Fall, apple picking and the Autumn season. My Mother is a wonderful artist, (she loves to watercolor). This was one of her first apple harvest watercolors that I just adore! In honor of the season, this beautiful print and frame is today's giveaway!
