Blogging Anniversary Give-away


Last week I told you that I had missed celebrating one year of blogging. Sheesh, how does one forget that? It’s taken me a few days to figure out what I was doing, but today’s post will show you the package I’m offering to one lucky winner. 

I am so appreciative of my followers and how you’ve stuck with me during my first, fun year of blogging. I’ve enjoyed the reciprocal sharing of our thrifting, our decorating, our projects, and our collecting. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that, through this amazing medium of blogging, I would  be forging such great friendships with such wonderful people .  So without further ado, here we go.

The rules are really simple. The give-away is open to my followers.  All you have to do to be eligible to win is to comment on this post and tell me that you follow.  If you’d like to share the give-away on your blog, feel free to do so.

If you sign up to follow in order to be entered in the give-away,  just tell me in your comment.  As of today, I am showing 175 of you on the follow list on my sidebar. If the number grows between now and midnight EDT Wednesday, March 24, which is the deadline for the give-away entry, I’ll be really thrilled. I love making new friends!  :-) 



For  the first item in the give-away,

I have partnered with my two good friends, Fern and Fran,


 Twice As Nice Lettering. 


The girls create vinyl wall graphics and sell them in their Etsy shop. I’ve ordered several pieces, including some that were custom,  from them and have been extremely satisfied with their quality.

monogram ~ twiceasnice 

You win the personalized monogram shown above. You’ll be able to choose your colors and use your own initials. 




In addition to the vinyl, the winner will receive a few treasures that I’ve picked up from estate sales and at some of my favorite antique/thrift shops. 






I showed you this silver-plated salt and pepper shaker set in a recent post. Who doesn’t like birds? This little set is so sweet and would be a perfect addition to someone’s bird or silver collection.



Most of you know that I love collecting old cut glass. I must have liked this piece because I purchased two identical bowls at two different times.  This bowl would be perfect for serving or displaying.




So many of you love roosters, and this small plate could surely accent an existing collection or begin a new one.




Where could you see yourself using this little star?




Here’s a new way to enjoy a candle. You just add this packet to a container of water, light the wick, and you have an instant candle!




On Easter Sunday morning,  enjoy your toast and coffee with a soft-cooked egg eaten out of this bunny egg cup and saucer.


So there you have it. Many thanks to you for your friendship.  I look forward to many more posts with you!

Great giveaway Sue! I'm definately a follower. You are so right about blogging forging freindships. It's been a pleasure vistitng with you all this time.

So, last night my mom mentioned my wearing green for St. Patrick's Day. She said my dad is part Irish. I knew there was a lot of northern euorpean blood on my dad's side but they never really celebrated their heritage that I knew about. So I asked her about it and she said, "Kathleen Kelly, can't get more Irish than that." I was like, who's that? Oh, Grandma Kay, Duh! Now I have even more reason to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
