100th Post~ Give Away!! *updated*

(*please see update below*)
Well, the magic number has arrived! I can't believe I've posted 100 times, or rather, had 100 topics to post about since starting a blog! But here it is.....and in honor of the occasion, I'd like to have a give away to say "thank you" to all my sweet blogging friends, as well as, to new ones I've recently met and others I hope to meet.
So, if you would please leave a "please enter me" comment on this post, I'll add your name to my ironstone pitcher and draw 3 names next Sunday evening, January 20th at midnight (MST).

Here are the particulars:

1st name drawn: Will choose one of two charms: Cupid or the Rosebud. Cupid ( 1 inch sq.) is made using a print of my new Cupid Silhouette, and the Rosebud (1 3/4 by 1/2 inch) is hand-painted onto glass, and has a vintage-y-paper background. These charms are made with lead-free solder. I've used a 'forged iron' effect for an "Old World" look.
2nd name drawn: Will choose one of two smaller charms: the Rose or the Heart. Both are 3/4 inch sq., hand-painted, and have pretty paper backgrounds... pink for the rose, and sheet music for the heart. Each charm is soldered with the same 'forged iron' look.

3rd name drawn: Will choose one of 2 sets of note cards. A set of 4 Cupid note cards for Valentine's Day, or a set of 4 silhouette cards for everyday notes.

Please leave a comment by Sunday, January 20th until midnight (MST), on this post to be entered. Thank you for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you whether this is your first visit, or you've graciously endured all of my 100 posts! :)

(Please leave your email or a link to your blog or website so I will be able to contact you if you win!)

*Update*~ thank you all for your comments! And thank you to those who have mentioned my give away on your blogs. If you do post about it on your blog, please comment on this post, or send me an Email giving me a link to your post, and I'll add you to a separate drawing...Thanks!

I would be so thankful for you to put my name into your lovely pitcher. I have an antique ironstone pitcher I was given from my Grandmother. It's a precious memory!
