Celebrating 100 followers with a giveaway!

I'm so excited to be part of the wonderful world of blogging...meeting new friends, gaining ideas and inspiration. And now...to have reached 100 followers (well... a little over), I'm just THRILLED to the moon and back again! So to celebrate...I'm hosting a giveaway of the items pictured above ~chair not inc. :o) They consist of a sweet print of the Eiffel Tower, a darling memories pillow, and a roses ruffled muslin drawstring bag straight from Katie's Rose Cottage Designs. I'll also be tucking in one or two "little surprises" to the winner.

So here we go...the dates to enter the giveaway are: 

  April 20th - May 4th

What are the rules you ask?

  • For one entry, leave a comment on my blog about the giveaway.
  • For a second entry, grab my giveaway button, post it on your blog, and leave me a separate comment letting me know you did so.
  • And for a third chance to win, if you post about this giveaway on your blog (and let me know) you'll get one more entry.
  • Also...good  news for my 135 followers...you get an extra automatic entry just for being the first brave souls to follow me....   :)
The winner will be drawn randomly on May 5th. I truly never knew all that I was missing until I began blogging.  I just want to say thank you. Your blogs, your kindness, and your creativity have touched my life. 
Thank you and Good luck!
Oh...and since my giveaway features whites...I thought I'd hook up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday.
