GRANNY IS 100!!!!!

100th FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY!


Sweet Blog Followers and dishes are my Favorite Things. 
SO!
Wouldn't you like to win this beautiful Pink Box with beautiful dessert plates, a little Paris sidewalk junk and much, much more?




THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
FOR EXPRESSING INTEREST 
IN THIS OLD GAL'S LIFE!!

A short while ago I wouldn't have guessed that 100 lovely people would have any interest in what I had to say.  I didn't have a theme for my blog except to talk about my life experiences.
I hoped to bring a little joy, a hearty laugh and share an occasional thought laced with a little sage.
To celebrate the 100th follower ( I never expected to get more than 10) I am sponsoring a 
 GIVEAWAY!
 It has become apparent that most of you are dish addicts.  You have dishes in the attic, under the bed, in the laundry room, in the garage and Lord only knows where else.
 I want to give to one lucky follower
a $30.00....plus, HomeGoods gift certificate.















HomeGoods
(donated by me)


An adorable four piece dessert plate set.
Who can't use extra shoes and dishes
Blue Monday has a beautiful shoe!

Hey! Happy Pink Saturday!





A unique pie/cake server
CAN SOMEONE SAY, "SHOE FETISH"?
ISN'T THIS THE CUTEST THING?

THE SPARKLY HEEL COMES OFF WHILE SERVING
And a junk souvenir from a Paris sidewalk
A few of these Paris sidewalk souvenirs was about all I had time to purchase!
I'm honored to have gotten to
know and have visited each of you!


Now this is how the GIVEAWAY IS gonna work.
As of today, I have 100 followers.
The entry period will last to January 22nd, ending at midnight. Winner will be announced the following day after being chosen through random.com.
The $30.00 gift certificate will be increased by 
$1.00 for each additional follower added during the entry period. 


As of 9:00 pm est Jan. 21st the gift certificate it up to $76.00!
It would be a Favorite Thing and a Happy Pink Saturday if you won it!
It is super easy to enter. This giveaway is for followers. You don't have to be a blogger to enter but must reside in United States or Canada. Make sure you have an email address available so that I can reach you.

Three ways to enter.  Each entry should be separate.

1. Leave a comment stating that you are a follower or have become a follower.
2. Grab my giveaway button and place it on your sidebar.
3. Promote the giveaway in one of your blogs.
 (The more traffic=followers the greater the giveaway)

Since my 100th follower post is a metamorphosis,  my gifts were blue, pink, thrifty, junkin(sidewalk junk) and  fantastic finds that you can use on your tabletop or tablescape and will make you happy, I will be linking to these gracious hostesses
throughout the week:

You are a hoot! I just found your blog today and I love it. I've become a follower and will be reading regularly.

"It has become apparent that most of you are dish addicts. You have dishes in the attic, under the bed, in the laundry room, in the garage and Lord only knows where else."

OMG, truer words were never spoken. Stop by my blog sometime if you get a chance. I'm a southerner too and have been a dish collector since the 1980s. One of my lines is "dishes in every room of the house." LOL. I love your new window treatment in your bedroom, too. That rod is great.

Sherri said...

First of all congratulations! Secondly, I have become a follower because I just love your blog! Those dishes and things on your giveaway are wonderful!! Hope you stop by my blog sometime!

I have also posted your giveaway in my scrollbar on my blog. I am so tickled with this one. We just opened a new Home Goods store in my area here in Phoenix. I could so have fun with this giveaway. Please enter me into the drawing.

I would love to have you pop over for a visit, and I would be honored to have you follow my blog as well. I love sharing our lives along the way and learning new crafts too.

Many country hugs, Sherry
