We Are Two Years Old



Woo Hoo!

We are thrilled to be celebrating TWO years as bloggers. This blog has been such a blessing. It’s strengthened our relationships with each other, we’ve learned so much about life and ourselves, had some amazing opportunities, and the best part rubbing shoulders virtually with all of you. We love sharing tips and ideas and touches of our lives. Thank you so much for your support.

For the next few days we are going to be giving away some fun gifts, sharing a little about us, and playing some games.

We hope you will join us.

Who doesn’t love a good, fun Scavenger Hunt! We sure do.

Once you have the answers email them to polkadotpoplars@hotmail.com putting “Scavenger Hunt” in the subject box.

2nd Birthday

Dru About Dru

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.
