~Blogaversary Celebration and Give Away~

I can't believe it has been a year since I chose my blog name and posted my First Post.
I was a little tentative about this thing called a "blog", but I have had so much fun this year meeting new people, visiting other countries (via the blogs), keeping up with talented friends, and being inspired by people's lives. So, I'd like to have a little give away to celebrate my "one-year-oldness".

I'm pulling down the ironstone pitcher from the hutch and will add your name to it if you would be so kind as to leave a comment on this post.

Here are the details:

1st name drawn: A "Bird-themed" gift....the winner will receive a hand-painted Robin's nest. This nest and eggs are painted on a 6 X 7 piece of wood. It has a hanger attached on the back, and will come signed and dated. I've made a little hanging folk art bird, and a set of 4 note cards (4.5X5.5) printed from my original paintings.

2nd name drawn: A "Strawberry-themed" gift.....the winner will receive a hand-painted whimsical strawberry in a black distressed frame with a gold metal inset rim (5 x 6). I've also made a strawberry pin keep out of wool (4X5).

Please leave a comment by this friday, April 25th, 12:00 pm (MST) on this post to be entered. Whether you visit frequently and post, or visit but don't usually post, or this is your first visit, all are welcome (no matter where you live). If you have difficulty posting, just send me an Email.

And don't forget to leave your email or a link to your blog or website so I will be able to contact you if you win! Thank you for helping me celebrate!


If you read my first post (link at the top of this post), you'll read about "my friend"....that is Lana, and she started a blog a few days before I did. So, she is also celebrating her first year of blogging. Please click on the link to help her celebrate!~
