While blogging and visiting the friends that I admire most
I almost didn't notice that coming very soon would be my hundredth post
But when Congratulating dear friend Marcy as she reached that peak
I checked and saw that mine would be within the coming week
So today I am celebrating my one hundredth post
With a give-away too that I'd like to host
A basket of goodies for you to enjoy
It's more for a girl than it is for a boy
Even though it contains items that more reflect me
I hope they are things that will bring you some glee
It's all wrapped up, it's ready and waiting
And it will be yours just for the taking
It is one thing old, and it is one thing new
And (of course) one thing pink, along with one thing blue
Now if you will be so dear
Please leave a comment here
And then onto some coins your names will go
And then into the pool, your names I will throw
My little friend Jayden will then take a swim
The coin he retrieves will be the one to win!
(Hey! Today should have been Wordful Wednesday with this poem here!)
Okay, enough with the bad rhyming. It's been my pleasure to blog along with all of you! You have all enriched my life so much with your witty jokes, and your thoughtful posts, and your kind and caring comments. It would be fun to host a party for you all, to give back to you in some small measure, but instead I'll just have to settle for this little give away.
I'm not very creative when it comes to the 'fun and games', so I'm going to leave that to our Dear, Fun-Loving, Always-Makes-Us-Smile Marcy, and I'm going to do something very boring and just ask you to be your usual kind selves, leave me a comment, and I will write your names on some coins, and then throw those coins into the pool and have Jayden pick the winner!
We might have to wait a little while though for the weather to start cooperating, I don't want the poor kid to get hypothermia! And I'll try to record and post a video of it all too!
Something old ~ A Vintage Irish Burmel Linen Handkerchief (no! It's never been used!)
Something new ~ A Scented Candle Tin (Fresh Ivy Vine)
Something pink ~ A Small Candy Dish
Something blue ~ A Little Sack of Blue Beach Glass in a Blue Glass
I purchased most of these things from one of my favorite stores ~ Anthropologie (except for of course the Irish vintage hankie and the beach glass!). I love the uniqueness of this store. I wanted to get pictures of the inside of it, but they frown upon picture-taking inside the store, so I just snapped the outside. This particular one is in a shopping mall, the other one I shop at actually has a much nicer facade.
I love the fact that this store uses vintage looking tables and cupboards to display their 'vintage-like' inventory. I like the way they stack the dishes on the tables, just as if they had been recently washed and dried and waiting their turn to be put back into Grandma's cupboard, and they have vintage looking aprons and dish towels hanging on hooks nearby. It's like taking a trip back into my childhood.
Shopping Anthropologie is not as much fun as shopping thrift shops and/or flea markets, but it's the next best thing!
I hope you enjoy the things I've chosen for you as much as I've enjoyed choosing them! And I'm going to try to add something a little more personal after I know who I'm sending this to!
My heartfelt thanks to you all, to those who have included me in your worlds and who have been kind enough to visit me in mine.
Good luck to everyone!
I'll have Jayden do the honors as soon as the pool water is warm enough and I'll post it right after!
