It is amazing to me that I have reached 100 posts already....having only started 52Flea on February 15th ....this means that within 80 days I posted 100 times.....hmm...I guess I have a lot of stuff to share....
Well, I see that the blogging thing to do is to have a give-away to celebrate your 100th post....so to that end...I have decided to have a "create your own give-away". I am just getting to know you all and since I have artist friends, antique and vintage loving friends, junking friends, decorating and designing friends, jewelry making friends, etc., and since everyone has different interests......
I thought it might be fun for you to specify a category of goodies from which you would like me to select your prize! Goodness me, I have plenty of stuff to choose from.....so if you are interested in receiving a treasure from one of the categories listed below.....all you have to do to enter this give away is to tell me you "want in" and leave your name in the commentsection (please make sure you leave me an email address or contact information if you do not keep a blog). I will pick one name out of a hat next Monday night, May 11th......if your name is picked.....just let me know which category of prize you would like me to pluck your treasure from! Does that sound too complicated?
Here are the categories: Nostalgia, Wireware, Tinware, Enamelware, Ephemera, Kitchenware, Vintage Sewing, Vintage Millinery, China, ......oh for goodness sake....tell me what you like and I will try to find something amongst my treasures that tickles your fancy!
This blogging experience has been so much fun and an outlet for my creative interests....I think of this as really more of a "give-back" than a "give-away". I thank you all for being so friendly...so willing to share and for being so kind to me....
If this sounds intriguing to you and you would like two chances to win.......mention this little give-away (or give-back) on your blog and then let me know....I will add your name twice to the hat!
Thank you everyone for all your support and encouragement! I'm having so much fun!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
