Blogiversary and Giveaway!!

Happy 1st Birthday Shabby Sweet Tea!!

I cannot believe I've been blogging for a full year and stuck to it!
What fun it has been.

Let's celebrate with a little giveaway, shall we?


{winner will be randomly selected by Rafflecopter. lucky person will be emailed by SST}

Thank you so much for following along, leaving your thoughtful comments 
and supporting my little painting business.
I am most thankful for the wonderful friendships I've gained while blogging.
You ladies know who you are!

I also want to thank my husband (Mr. SST) for spending countless hours in craft stores with me, moving large pieces of furniture and waking up at the crack of dawn to garage sale.
My dad too! He sure is full of great ideas and is always on call with his trailer.

So what does Shabby Sweet Tea have in store for year 2??

Be on the look out for a new blog design.
More furniture posts with tutorials.
A spot at the local flea market.
Possibly a few mom friendly fashion posts.
And more about me, Elyse.

and don't forget that Shabby Sweet Tea is now on Instagram.

Just for fun, below is my very first post...

Ahhh, love is in the air. Girly colors, sparkle, shimmer, treats, massive mylar balloons...I love it all. Valentine's Day may be a huge commercial holiday but it sure does get me excited. What other time of year can I plaster pink around my house! I decided yesterday that my "winter" wreath (we've had no winter here in the South) needed to go. Off to Michaels I went for a wooden plaque, the perfect pink paint, ribbon, black wooden letters, felt, and pearls. Of course I forgot something and had to go back for wood glue. This festive creation now shows some much needed love for the front door.

I have been following your blog since about March of last year. Then tragically, my computer crashed and the entire thing got whipped. I COULD NOT find your blog agian. I searched for a month or so (trying all sort of ice/sweet tea variations. FINALLY - last week I found you and immediately signed up for your emails so I would not lose you again. Love your blog! In fact I have mapped out an ASCP project because you gave such great directions.
