Today, I am celebrating my 200th post! I have truly enjoyed blogging, as it has been a wonderful forum for me to express myself randomly about my interests, my disinterests, my art, my family, my house and all the projects, nature and poetry, books and authors, travels and home thoughts, current events or the weather. Hmmm...I admit to doing quite a bit of rambling. Which is why I am always humbled by the fact that anyone else would even want to read it, and I am so appreciative of those who stop by regularly or from time-to-time just to read a bit and say hello.
So, in the spirit of celebration and friendship and rambling, I am giving away some BLING on my 200th blogaversary. I have A LOT of costume jewelry. A lot. Most of the really special stuff was given to me by my grandmother who ALWAYS looked smashing and wore the latest fashions. It was from her that I first learned to love all these pretty shiny things. I used to play dress up as a young girl and put on her biggest, shiniest jewelry and high heels. A few years ago when I was visiting her, she told me that she had such fond memories of me trying on her jewelry and her high heels that she wanted to give them to me. So...all those pretty pieces I drooled over as a little girl are now in my very own permanent collection of shiny jewelry. She also gave me a pair of high heeled shoes about which she loves to tell the story of coming home from work one day and finding me running around the yard in them. I would sit in the floor of her closet and try on the highest of the high heels and think they looked just beautiful on my feet...but that's a totally different story for another blog post. I am rambling...see?
ANYway, I am giving away some of my costume jewelry to one reader of my blog. If you are a follower and would like to participate, just leave me a comment on this post, and on March 18th, I'll randomly select one winner (by random number selector, of course). That winner will receive at least a couple of pieces of my vintage costume jewelry and anything else I find that I may want to add to the goody box. For an extra entry in the contest, just blog about my giveaway on YOUR blog, and I'll assign you another random number for an ever greater chance at winning.
So, if you like a bit of bling, here's a giveaway for you! Thanks so much for following my blog, and I hope you'll be following me for many posts to come!
