Granny's "Giveaway"

Thank You For All Your 
Support
and 
Kindness
While Bob and I were on our recent road trip, my wonderful friends in blogland pushed my blog over
300 
followers. 
This is something I NEVER expected. I never expected to reach 25 followers.  Some very kind friends from Rate My Space started an all out campaign to ease the way. Linda and her daughter Debbie of Debbiedoos Blogging and Blabbing sent friends over to visit and follow. Linda sent her facebook friends and soon I was bitten by the bug. 
A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have stuck with me through my on again off again posting routine.
Some of you know that I deal with congestive heart failure. Some weeks I am a posting fool other weeks I am quiet. 

I think of myself in the race of "The Tortoise and the Hare" but in my case I play both characters. When I do get a post together, you still come to visit and to chat. For that I am eternally grateful and I want to give back to my awesome blogger friends. 

Now for the Giveaway!
First I would like to share
a little of my lovely city
Savannah.

From Byrd's Cookie Company, a Savannah institution, 
Byrd's famous "Key Lime Coolers" cookies packed in a
"Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"souvenir tin. A package of Plantation Herb Rice and Savannah Red Rice. A Savannah lollipop to sweeten the deal.

For all my sweet "Frenchy" friends


This adorable set of cocktail napkins with a black and white patterned tray.

For all you wonderful cooks and entertainers!


Sheila Lukins "Celebration" cookbook
and to celebrate this cute little "cupcake"salt and pepper shaker I found on my road trip.

You are already WINNER'S in my book!
Good luck on winning these little goodies!

Giveaway begins Thursday August 4th
Ends Thursday August 11th at midnight.
Winner announced Friday August 12th.

Six ways to win!

Hi, Ginger! I had not heard of Sheila Lukins or the book "Celebrate" that she authored. I just looked it up on Amazon, and I have put it on my "Wish List". Looks like a neat book! I, for one, did not know about your battle with congestive heart failure. Hang in there! It's a battle, but I know you can knock it to its knees!!! Congratulations on the 300+ followers for your blog, and best wishes to the winner of the giveaway! Take good care, and have a restful weekend!
