The sun lay like a friendly arm across her shoulder.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

In honor of my 500th post (wow!) I'm doing a little giveaway. My first!

My aunt who lived for years in St. John, USVI always gave such cute stuff from the islands. With my cold weather self is craving the sun right now, so I thought it would be appropriate to have a giveaway filled with sunshine!

View from the deck of my aunt and uncle's home near St. John.

My favorite line that my aunt started sending was this funky ceramic pottery collection from a store called Pink Papaya.

I have the fun appetizer bowls/plates and coffee mugs so I thought you all would enjoy the darling salt and pepper shakers.

Aren't the darling! I love all of the stuff I have in this pattern and I hope the winner will too.

To enter:

1. Leave a comment.
2. You'll receive a second entry if you are a follower (just let me know!).

I'll pick an entry randomly on Monday, Feb. 8 and will post the winner that day too! Hope you enter and thanks for reading post 501.
