A CELEBRATION!!!! and a
GREAT GIVE-AWAY, OH YEAH!

What better way to celebrate than to do it with friends. As you know, once you become a blogger, you make hundreds of wonderful and talented, kind and generous, warm and caring FRIENDS.

For the past three years my "blogging" friends have shared my heartaches, brought me joy, sent me outstanding creations which I will treasure forever, but most importantly have become a huge part of my life. And for that I thank you.


Please CELEBRATE my joy in being featured in "COTTAGE STYLE" magazine. The best part about this feature was that I had "no idea" they were publishing it until about two weeks ago when Harris Publications called to confirm my website address. At that time they explained that their Annual Issue of "Cottage Style" would be featuring my home in the "ROMANTIC" section of the upcoming issue. Needless to say, I was screaming and jumping around the house. I am honored to be featured in this gorgeous magazine.

To Celebrate this wonderful news with my blogging friends ~ I've decided to have a huge "Give-Away".
$100 GIFT CERTIFICATE
to spend on anything you desire in any of my three shops, "Treasured Heirlooms", "Elegance & Whimsy", or "NewEnglandVintage" ~ Etsy shop.

My goal for 2010 is to have at least 1,000 people "Following" my blog. I know that is a bit of a stretch, but I'm going to give it a go by starting today. So, here are the things you can do to be entered in the first "BIG GIVE-AWAY".

1-Entry for being a Follower (click on Follow)---->
2-Entries for adding my blog pic to your blog sidebar---->
3-Entries for sharing the news in a blogpost
4-Entries if you follow me on Facebook

Please don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know how many of the above items you've chosen to participate in the contest and ~ voila ~ you're entered.









THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED WHEN I REACH
500 FOLLOWERS ~ Good Luck and Thank You.

I agree with you about blogging, it probably saved me from going into a deep depression last year(I learned my 26 year old daughter had been abused by her step grandfather at the age of 6, she says only happened once) God HELP ME ---I am crying as I type this, I just need help everyday to get through the day, but my sweet blogging friends who encourage me by their sweet comments and my loving fajmily gets me through, my new grand-daughter makes me smile and laugh everyday.
SO glad to be your new follower and friend
sorry to lay this on you, but wanted you to know why blogging is so important
