My Sesquicentennial Post and Giveaway


This is my 150th post, and I am celebrating with a special giveaway. I will assign each person who comments a special number and conduct a random drawing on Sunday, February 28th, the last day of this month. The winner will receive a special gift box from me containing vintage treasures, art items, and anything else I may think to add to the box. It really is a mystery at this point all that I will decide to include. So...feel free to enter by leaving a comment.


I've truly enjoyed my blog and all the wonderful people with whom I have become acquainted since beginning it. I hope to be blogging for many years to come!


By the way, the sweet little wrapped gift photo above is courtesy of Lilla Blanka. Visit this blog...you'll be amazed at the simplistic beauty and the creativity in using vintage items. Just gorgeous! And while my little gift probably won't be wrapped as creatively as this (although I'll try), it has definitely given me inspiration! We'll see what happens!


Thanks for visiting and following,

Hello Paula, Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my blog. I read yours for a long time and I was drooling over the pictures, maybe because I live in a large city, your town looks so lovely and inviting. Your animal family members are just adorable. I look forward to getting to know you.

I admire you for having 150 post. I get sidetrack by life sometimes and don't post for weeks. I'm trying to do better this year.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and leaving the breadcrumbs for me to find my way here! And with a giveaway in the offering, to boot! Lucky day for me.

I also ran a B&B (and restaurant) in an historic building for many years. We need to share stories. LOL

Please enter me in your drawing - and I've become a follower, so I'll be able to keep up with your closet news! LOL

I'll have to go back and see how many posts I've done. We spent the weekend in Nashville moving my Grandmother and I came home with a lot of goodies, far more than I need. I should do a giveaway sometime, too.

Ooh Ooh! Pick me, pick me! I would love some lovely little vintage goodies (as long as it's not a chunk of that charcoaled beam)! Thanks for the link to Lilia's blog. Don't have to read her language to understand the amazing beauty of her home! Wow!
