Pay It Forward x 3

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

I am the fortunate recipient of Pay it Forward.....AGAIN!

Deb, a.k.a Garage Sale Gal, was a recipient of Theresa's, at Take a Sentimental Journey, who was a recipient of my last Pay it Forward. I went over to check out Deb's post and she was already playing, so I was lucky enough to be one of her three recipients. I am not sure where Pay It Forward originated but I think it was a great idea!

Take a look at all the WONDERFUL things that I just received from Deb!

A card of white buttonsTHOSE will be used on the duvet cover I am making! A vintage hankie, a vintage greeting card, AND a glittery white gemstone encrusted starfish and a handmade dish towel embroidered with a bluebird, both HANDMADE by DEB,


Some cute little monkeys, some Halloween napkins, some language cards, some BINGO cards, and some lesson pages....


a couple of Deb's handmade notecards all boxed up in a fancy little French box...with a sweet little note from Deb. Thank you, thank you, thank you, DEB!! And also THANK YOU for participating!

How WONDERFUL was all that???? With all these things there is NO excuse for me not to craft and RE-cyle--I already have ideas spinning around in my head!!'s your turn. Here's the rules:

If you would like to participate in Pay It Forward, just leave a comment on this post. The first three people to leave a comment will be my next Pay It Forward recipients. You must have a blog so I can read your postings and learn a little about you. That way, I will know what to make just for you! THEN, when you receive your package from me, you post pictures of what you received, just as I have done, then add the Pay It Forward button (which is at the TOP of this post) to your post, and wait for three comments on your blog...and the game continues on. If there are any questions you can ask me anytime! It really is a whole lot of fun! Let's see how far this PAY IT FORWARD can continue.

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company!

Au revoir,

What a fun idea! I'd love to play this game.
Your package of goodies was full of interesting items. Can't wait to see what you create.

Have to say, I'm still chuckling about the feeder with candy corn for your roosters. Just great!

Don't count this comment for the Pay it Forward...I just wanted to come over and visit you. I'm so glad you like the little gifts. It is a great game to play and I hope you have all the players that you need.
You are so welcome.
Deb :)

Those sure do look like very nice pay it forward surprises. I love the old bingo cards and the monkeys. Those look like they are from the old Barrel of Monkeys game. That brings back memories. I always enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing. TL

Hi Jacque,
Don't count me either. I was just stopping by for a visit. Just wanted to see how you were doing. I see you are doing another Pay it Foward. What pretty things you got. How cute is that blue bird dish towel. Wishing you a wonderful day my friend and I'll be back to visit again soon.

I thought I was the only one up early blogging while my hubby still catches a few zzzz's. You will love Asheville, NC so please make it a stop to visit real soon. The Smokie's are to Tobacco Barn Antique today. Have a wonderful Saturday. Sea Witch

Hi Jacque,
Thanks for visiting me again in Normandy today, and for the compliments on the garden.
A Presbytere is the house that the Roman Catholic priest lived in. He officiated at the 12th century church across the lane.
It has been a very long time since the house belonged to the Church. Although it was empty during the war, at one point it was occupied by German soldiers.
I think we are the 3rd or 4th owners since then.
a bientot

Hi Jacque!!

I saw your comment at Maggies and I was wondering if I might help you with your flowers. You may need to check the tags that come with the plants or a garden book to see the type of soil is needed for your hydrangeas. I know they need a mix of either acidic or alkaline soil and you can ask your nursery what you need to add. I planted wisteria for the 1st time last year and the key was to give it something short to climb on until it could reach the arbor. I nailed a piece of trellis to my porch and I wind the tendrils around it as often as needed (they seem to want to go off in all directions~sort of like my hair!!). I have one rose bush and I just give it a lot of rose food and cover it with one of those cones over the winter. I hope this helps...

I am sorry I missed your roosters!! That list was LONG!!! I did make it 3/4 of the way!! I love Frenchie and Whitey. I am not a rooster collecter but I think I may just look for a white one!! I am having an Ugly Rooster giveaway and my post today was the last chance to leave a comment and enter, if you'd like...
