A few days ago, I stopped at my mailbox and was surprised to find a little package out there. It's always nice getting something other than bills, isn't it? My husband thinks I'm buying all these things that come to our house, and I keep assuring him that I'm winning them. Fellow blogger, Charmaine Manley, over at High Desert Diva had a recent giveaway to celebrate the 100th person to sign up to follow her blog. Readers were encouraged to leave a comment and the winner would receive a surprise gift in the mail.
And I won this gorgeous Iris Art Deco candlestick! Thanks, Charmaine!
Folks, Charmaine is an interior designer and her design site is beautiful.
And now I've decided to hold my own giveaway because I, too, would like to celebrate the 100th person who has signed up to follow this blog. The 100th person to follow this blog is Maggie Gem so I'm giving a shout out to her. Hi there, Maggie!
To enter this giveaway, readers are asked to leave a comment on this post telling me what's the best way to contact you. I'll draw the winner of a surprise gift on Friday.
And just because I can't resist, I'm posting another photograph in my texture series. Kacey wrote me to say that she's liking this new addiction of mine sooooo much better than the mushroom addiction I had last summer. Hey, I like mushrooms, Kacey. They stay really still when you're trying to photograph them, too.
Speaking of Kacey, head on over to her Photo of the Month contest. This month's theme was "Cold". You get three votes for this contest and there's some great entries tis month. Check it out!
And finally, to my friend and co-worker, Alisa (the real country girl around here). I miss you at work and hope you know how much we all care. Heal pretty, girl.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
