300th Post Give-Back!



It's snowing outside....and the prediction is that there will be 12 to 18 inches of snow on the ground by morning...
...it will be a quiet and peaceful, stay at home, wrap presents, finish decorating the tree Sunday...
...it might even be a bake some cookies Sunday...



Before we talk about my Give-Back ... I would like to thank each and every one of you who commented on my previous post and left me well wishes and congrats on the news that 52 Flea is in the Winter 2010 issue of Somerset Life. It means a lot to me to hear from you and I am once again overwhelmed by the kindness and support of all my friends in our blogging community. I hope my little article lives up to any expectations...it's not any great literary work...just about a simple girl, her appreciation of beautiful details, love for collecting and how she came to write a blog!

Anyway....moving on to my 300th post Give-Back! I have been trying to decide how to give back...what to give away to you... my blogging friends... for this momentous occasion.

...It's like a triple play...300 posts... it's Christmas and the Somerset Life feature....

It seems as if there needs to be three winners!

I have been looking at all the treasures that I have found while shopping at some of my favorite stores and haunts in the last few months.



...and I just can't decide on anything that is worthy enough...that everyone will like or want...so...

The First Winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to my favorite store Anthropologie...
...this way you can pick out something that is just perfect for YOU...and if you don't have a store close by...you can order something online!



The Second Winner will receive these 2 darling hand towels...which I found, of course, at Anthropologie...



And the Third Winner will receive this beautiful glass plate with scrumptious calligraphy...



...and which I adore and want to keep for my greedy self...
...found, of course at Anthropologie...



So, all you have to do to win is tell me you would like a chance by leaving a comment.
(If you can't figure out how to leave a comment...send me an email!)

This giveaway is open to everyone...wherever you live...

... you don't have to have a blog of your own to enter...

...you don't have to be a "follower"...

In order to spread the word and give everyone an opportunity to win...I guess it makes sense to offer a second chance to those who choose to blog about this giveaway or put it on their sidebar...and for that I would be grateful...(please comment again to let me know)

Winners will be picked the day after Christmas...Saturday the 26th!
Good Luck to all and Thank you!

It's after 10 pm ...poor Santa baby is out shoveling snow already...
Hope you are comfy and cozy in your own little nest!

Oh, my dear...all that snow! Hailing from Wisconsin, I know that white stuff all too well, but I'm so happy not to have this "maturing" body subjected to it anymore. (Fun to look at, but not so much fun up close.)

What a wonderful giveaway you're having! Congratulations on your 300th post. Here's to many, many more. And, congratulations on your write up in Somerset Life. I have a subscription, and when I read it I thought, "Hey, I'm one of her followers!" ;-P giggle

Merry Christmas,
Donna

You're amazing having written 300 posts in one year! That little plaque is JUST what I have been trying to perfect since September. Hope I will one day make the grade.

Poor Symphony is waiting some tender loving care - after the Christmas break.
Much love and again congratulations...

Hi Laura, I can't find the magazine.I was told it is not on sale until January 15th. Make sure you bring it with you when we go to Evi's,I can't wait to see it. Love,Paula.

Laura said...

The Stampington & Company website states that the Winter issue of Somerset Life will be available January 1st. I believe if you have a subscription then you will receive it earlier...in fact you may have already received it. My local Borders told me that as soon as it comes in...they will put it out on the racks...It wasn't at Michaels, Joanne's or Borders today...(I just happened to be out at lunch today and thought I would ask..)...
I'm not anxious or anything!! :)

Congratulations on being in a Somerset magazine! I love all their magazines! I love Anthropology too - it's a great place to get inspired. I always thought that it must be a fun job - being a buyer for them! I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. Thanks!

I love to have my name in for your giveaway,
what great things.
I really enjoy your blog and congratulations on
being featured in Somerset Magazine. That's a real honor.
You certainly have some very faithful followers and commentors and I can see why.

Casey said...

Better late than never, right!? Many thanks for your daily inspirations. For those of us on shoestring budgets, it is a joy to follow a blog that showcases everyday finds at everyday places! Anthropologie is one of my favorites as well. I always find myself wandering through the store for inspiration - then I trek out to the local thrift stores and flea markets here in Atlanta to find that incredible style for less! I enjoy the challenge!
