Random Monday Memories


100th Post Giveaway!


My memories today go back 100 posts. I was "surfing the net" and happened upon the wonderful Land of Blog. It's been a lovely adventure ever since. There are so many places to visit, so much to learn and so many friends to meet ~ all over the world! I've been spiritually challenged and creatively inspired. My heart's been touched in so many ways. Who would have thought that could happen while sitting alone at my laptop. What a pleasure it's been to get to know new friends while keeping old friends and family up to date and entertained by my babbling! What a pleasure it will be to send a bit of me to someone who visits my blog.



So here's the giveaway ~ one winner takes all! A raggedy doll who needs a home, a snowman candlelight and a framed, prim welcome. The rag doll is about 24 inches tall, the candlelight and snowman are tucked into an evergreen filled sleigh and the hand stitched welcome is in a 5x7 wood frame.


Make a comment here and get a chance at this sweet gathering of goodies. Post about it on your blog and get a second chance. Please comment by midnight EST on November 25th. I'll be drawing a winner on November 26th ~ the day before Thanksgiving.


Have a blessed day!

Good morning, Marie! I loved reading your reflections on keeping a blog journal ~ especially about sending a little piece of your self with each visitor. Very sweet!

Please be sure to include my name for your drawing. I'll be sure to post about it and add it to my sidebar. Love the Annie doll and all the prims.

Blessings,
Lea

Hi Marie, Seems like years since I've seen you...but it's only been a year and a half. I stumbled upon your blog a short while ago and every time I read it I think to myself that I should let you know...then life happens and I'm on to something else. While I don't really expect to "win" this was a good time to say hi, let you know that I miss you, and that I love seeing the baby pics!!!! Haven't heard from Joe and Jo in a while so it's nice to see some updated pics of Elijah...and of course I love seeing Charlotte, too! They are both adorable Please tell Joan and Geoff that I said hi! (I do hear from Joan every once in a while)

Quilt Hollow said...

I found your blog through another and now am marking yours in one of my favorites! This is just adorable and in reading your write up about your 100th post touched a spot in my heart as well. I have many friends who ask why blog...they don't want the world to know about them....I've learned that many friends live far away and have never been met if it weren't for blogging....and now that I've gotten to know several with my same interest I wished we could live closer! Congrats again and even if I'm not selected...you made my day with that post!

burrhippie said...

Ben said...

I would like to have a chance to win the Annie. I collect them. In fact, I have an old one that's been so well-loved that he has a new face that a loving mom made out of cloth and a marker. He's an Andy, of course. He has a music box inside and plays the ABC song; one little boy's treasure long ago! I can't say just how much I enjoy your blog. It's full of many of the same things that I enjoy in life. Keep up the good work!

My son, Ben, is my IT rescue. Never posted a comment before, so used his Google log in. We both wanted to make this crystal clear. He's a handsome teenage boy...and Doesn't want an Annie doll!

I agree with you. I have learned so much from this computer. I can create a blog. I can download pictures. I can converse with people from all over the world. I love it and I feel as though I've grown, too. There is so much big/ small world out there.
I would be honored to be entered in your giveaway.
