Celebrating 150, 250 with a Give-a-Way

Today I'm Celebrating


9/3/09 

Date of my first blog post!

Today marks post number 
250!

It has been 2 1/2 years of joy!

As of today I have
150 followers.

And while that's not a big number...
 it is the people who make up that number
that are special!  

The friends I've made 
have meant the world to me!
Blessings
 true blessings
 each and everyone of you.

So today I'm celebrating
 you,
each person who
 takes a minute to read my ramblings,
look thru way too many photos,
take "walks" with me,
even leave me a precious comment.

A great big 
Thank You!

In honor of you I am offering a small give-a-way...
 The gift of "Solitude"!

It is a tiny 2x2 painting that I painted this winter.

All you have to do is....

Leave a comment...

If you are not a blogger but would
 still like an opportunity to win
please leave a comment using the
anonymous  feature in the comment section.
(Just make sure you add your
name someplace in the comment
and check back next Monday!)

I will hold this give-a-way open till next Monday
March 26th.

And once again....

thank you!
(Wish I had a painting to give away to each one of you!)

DeeDee: Such a sweet little lamb. Looks like he might be a little spring lamb that is lost in the snow. He could come to my cottage and feel right at home!. Happy Spring..Judy

Too bad I missed this, I LOVE your little paintings, they are so precious. I'm not really lucky in winning stuff anyway though! LOL! But I'm happy for your anniversary and that you love your Followers! I know I'm included. ;)
Seriously, it is better to have fewer Followers, but people who are true, and YOU are 'true' in return to your Followers -- meaning some people leave comments and never get a comment back, they leave comments for the big bloggers to be in the "in" crowd, I guess. Sometimes it's like it's back in high school. But really, I think it's sad.
So please know, I am honored to be a Follower of yours and enjoy leaving comments. xxoo
Best,
Gloria
