Welcome to the final day of our fabulous celebration!
We even broke bread together the other day.
And everyone wanted the recipe, so I provided the Best Banana Bread Recipe, ever.
To wrap up our Five Days of Giveaways I wanted to give you something, too.
Something I created special for you…and I’m giving away something from my Longaberger collection.
I hope you like both.
Free Friendship Printable
Recently I was creating a book page runner…which you might see in upcoming posts. As I was removing pages from the book I discovered this quote. It seems that it was meant to be and fits in perfectly for our week-long blogiversary celebration.
Friendship is precious, not only in the shade,
but in the sunshine of life.
And thanks to a benevolent arrangement of things,
the greater part of life is sunshine.
~ Thomas Jefferson

Today’s Extraordinary Giveaway!
It seems that food and friendship go hand-in-hand. We love to chat over dinner, a cup of coffee, or even a slice of the Best Banana Bread. Exchanging recipes is something we do out of friendship. So, when I debated about what would be the perfect giveway for my first blog anniversary, I chose a Longaberger Small Recipe Basket with Lid and Protector and Liner. And because red is always the perfect color to give life to a room…and a favorite of mine…I thought this basket would be perfect. Who’s excited?
For those of you who don’t know, Longaberger has been a part of my life for a long time. After moving for the umpteenth time a little more than a year ago, I chose not to restart my business locally. However, I do have an online Longaberger business. I am careful to not talk about it here on the blog a lot, but because I love both the baskets and the pottery, well, you often see it in my photos. It’s woven into my life.
From time-to-time I will do a Longaberger post, but if you are interested in knowing more about this fabulous line of products you can click here, or email me. Since my husband is out of work I would be thrilled if a few of you might consider hosting an online party…it’s super simple and a win-win for both of us. Just shoot me an email and we’ll make it happen.
This gorgeous basket is handwoven in Dresden, Ohio and signed and dated by its weaver. Every Longaberger basket is made of hardwood maple for strength and it is double splinted and double woven. This one is in bold red…a limited edition color and designed to hold 3×5 recipe or index cards. But, if you can’t wait to win or want to give one as a gift or treat yourself, you may order it here. It is available in three other stain colors as is called the Large Recipe, designed to hold 4×6 inch cards. I’ve had one for a very long time and can’t imagine not having it in my kitchen.
