Post 100!! - Time for a Giveaway!



I can not believe that this is my 100th post! I can not believe I actually have enough going on in my life to write 100 posts. However, I must - for we are here; and I am so excited to be able to host my very first giveaway. I wanted to have a giveaway for my readers to tell you thank you for reading my posts - encouraging me with your kind comments - and allowing me in to many of your worlds by sharing your posts with me. In gratitude - I wanted to put together a basket of goodies that I will award to one reader. All you have to do - is comment on this post and I will put your name in the drawing.

For the giveaway I wanted to include some things that I have shared with you - or showed you in previous posts. I have included a link over to the post where these items were talked about - all of the giveaway items are duplicates of the previous items talked about - as they were all purchased especially for the giveaway.
A few cookie cutters. I purchased another church, hand, and tea pot -- I also found the heart and little dutch girl too cute to pass up today when I was purchasing for the giveaway.

Ah, tea! And one of my favorites - English Breakfast. I thought I would include a coffee package too just in case any of you do not like tea.
The most "Yummiest Smelling Candle" in the world.

This is unique and new to the giveaway - I just loved this framed print.
Homemade granola stored in a canning jar - as I talked about in one of my more recent posts. I am sure you will love this delicious treat. (I will also include the recipe from Tammy's place.)

Well, that's it - a basket of goodies for one of my readers. I can't wait to see who wins.

I would love to hear from all of you - as well as any of your friends. If you have a blog - and would post about my giveaway on your blog, as well as link over to my site - let me know and I will put your name in twice for the drawing. ( Feel free to download the picture on my side bar if you post about the giveaway.) Please make sure I have access to your email address - so I will know how to contact you and get your mailing address if you win. (If your email is on your blog - I will be able to find it there.)

If you are first time visitor here at my place - consider this a "Welcome to my Blog" giveaway - I would love to hear from you too. Feel free to include any comments on ideas you would have for other posts that I could write about.

The giveaway will be left up until Monday night, Jan, 21. Then, on Tuesday morning ( Jan 22) - before we start school - I will do the drawing and let the winner know who she is! Thanks for participating; and thanks so much for stopping by - I am so glad you did.

Blessings,
~Martie

MammyT said...

Hello Martie. I saw your comment at Tomato Soup Cake (I love the tomato patch) and found I had never been to your blog before. So please do enter me in the giveaway and I'll be most happy to put it on my site, as well. You and I have the same favorite tea. I'm wondering if you made the quilt in the lilac and lavender that is shown behind the gifts. It is really nice.

Martie said...

mammyt,

I did not make the "quilt" behind my give away gifts. I quilt only in my heart - as I have never learned - but would love to!

The "quilt", as you so graciously named it - is actually a vinyl tablecloth I picked up at Walmart of $3.50. lol. If you find a beautiful quilt for $3.50 let me know!!

Thanks for your kind comments - I will enter your name in. Hope you drop in more - I enjoy the visits.

Blessings,
~Martie
